With only 14 days left before we say goodbye to 2014, we thought it only timely to look back at this year's blog posts to find out which story created the most buzz.

Jennifer Lawrence, Vampire Facelift, Tom Cruise, and the most requested celebrity faces in Plastic Surgery made this list. What else was destined to be most popular?

While eating right and exercising are the keys to a healthy lifestyle, they don’t always lead to the fat loss you want. Stubborn fat can cling to areas like the thighs, buttocks and abdomen, and these areas can become even harder to slim down as you age. Liposuction can help you get the results you want.

The decision to get liposuction, commonly referred to as lipo, can be made for a number of reasons. Some get the procedure after working hard to get to their goal weight, but still need a little help shaping or sculpting an area of their body. Others may get the procedure to help treat medical conditions that cause unwanted build-up of fatty tissue. In any case, there are usually several options for you to discuss with your doctor.

From liposuction surgery to ultrasound and infrared fat-zapping treatments, Americans are always looking for new ways to blast away a few extra pounds and achieve their ideal figure.

While some of the infrared and ultrasound fat-melting treatments are under scrutiny by the medical community, liposuction continues to be the most effective way to get rid of unwanted pounds permanently. Now, researchers are looking into noninvasive approaches to fat loss, and have recently unveiled the results of a study that points to the benefits of lasers for permanent fat removal.

The fall style is here, the weather is cooling down, and most of us want to slip into last year’s jeans. What’s this you see? Your squeezing tight jeans are showing your “muffin top”. Many women flock to the cosmetic surgery doctor for a SmartLipo (Laser Liposuction) procedure, removing the excess fat in their tummy or thighs.

“Many times with diet and exercise alone, men and women will still have resistant fat in certain areas,” says Dr. Deal, a Double Board Certified Cosmetic Surgeon at Southern Surgical Arts. “Liposuction should be more properly termed Liposculpture, as it is more about improving a patients shape than size.”

Traditional liposuction can effectively remove large volumes of body fat, but does not have a positive effect on skin laxity. This is why many plastic and cosmetic surgeons prefer to perform liposuction with laser lipolysis techniques.

The SmartLipo is among the leading laser liposuction procedures available in the United States, and Cynosure, the makers of SmartLipo, have developed the innovative SmartLipo Triplex laser body sculpting system, that helps to tighten and tone the skin, and can also get rid of localized fat deposits.

With warmer months right around the corner, many men and women are considering going under the knife to improve their appearance.

However, there are now several procedures available that do not demand much downtime and can be performed within a few hours. These may be attractive options for those who want to enjoy a mini-makeover before the summer months, and avoid the risks and complications associated with more extensive procedures, such as facelift surgery, traditional liposuction and other body contouring procedures.

Laser lipoplasty, also known as laser lipolysis and laser liposuction, is among the most sought-after plastic surgery procedures in the United States.

Many plastic surgery centers and medical spas now offer this procedure on an outpatient basis, and advertise it as one of the quickest and most effective ways to permanently reduce body fat. The pros and cons of this innovative procedure were recently discussed by experts at the Annual Meeting of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) held at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center this past April.

Over 80 percent of women are fighting the war against cellulite, and medical equipment manufacturers continue to explore new ways to treat the skin tissues and produce visible changes that will help reduce – or eliminate – cellulite. Eleme Medical has launched a new SmoothShapes XV device that promises to deliver heat to the fat cells approximately three times faster than the original SmoothShapes system and other body contouring devices, and provide better results with fewer treatments.

The Smoothshapes XV Anti-Cellulite device was unveiled at the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery in Phoenix, Arizona this month. The device is made with Eleme’s proprietary Photomology® technology that helps treat cellulite by delivering both laser and light energy deep into the skin tissues, and using mechanical manipulation with a vacuum and massage treatment to reach further into the skin tissues. The non-invasive procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, and there is no anesthesia required.
