One of the most moving figures of the 2012 London Olympic Games was Jessica Ennis. Now her figure is having a ripple effect in women throughout the world, who are looking to improve their stomachs after being inspired by her performance.
According to a recent Huffington Post article
, demand for stomach-shaping procedures such as tummy tucks and liposuction has skyrocketed internationally as a result of her inspirational achievements. Increased attention has been particularly strong for the liposuction
and tummy tuck
Olympic Gold Medal-Winner Jessica Ennis Inspires Women Worldwide
Demand has been particularly high in the United Kingdom, where coverage of the national hero has been the heaviest. According to one local clinic owner, “Since the Olympics started we’ve had a lot of women coming to us with pictures of Jessica Ennis saying they want to have a torso similar to hers, but they have said they need a bit of extra help because they struggle to get down to those levels with just a couple of gym sessions a week.”
Options for women wishing to improve their stomach appearance may vary greatly depending on the severity of the situation. Laser treatments and other non-surgical procedures may be highly effective for patients who wish for minimal adjustment.
Liposuction, which has long been one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world, may be used to provide customized removal of excess fat tissue from the spots where it has accumulated the most. Ever-increasing technology has led to several versions of the standard liposuction procedure.
For a more dramatic result, a full or mini tummy tuck may be performed, in which the excess fat tissue is surgically removed along with any loose or excess skin. This procedure is particularly good for patients who have had significant weight loss, and may be enhanced by other body contouring procedures such as arm lifts
, buttocks enhancement or thigh lifts.
