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.”

We’ve all heard about celebrities going under the knife to improve their looks and enhance their appearance, and while some do manage to enhance their looks with a nip and tuck, others fall victim to a plastic surgery disaster. Celebrities including Tara Reid and Amanda Lepore have been criticized and publicly humiliated after repeat plastic surgery procedures that have led to disaster. Fortunately for stars like Tara Reid, revision surgery has helped to correct the deformities and irregularities caused by the botched procedure. Still, many celebrities aren’t so lucky and have to find ways to mask their anti-aging disaster.

Good looks are a high priority for daytime television stars and some of our favorite soap opera actors and actresses do go under the knife to perfect their appearance. Unfortunately, many end up being victims of the next plastic surgery disaster. Botox, facelifts, liposuction, and breast augmentation are among the most popular procedures in Hollywood but the final results don’t always end up being picture-perfect.

Some recent plastic surgery tragedies:

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.
