The Yoga Pants Craze Has Led to a Rise in Liposuction

We all remember the yoga pants craze that swept the country. In theory, we're supposed to wear yoga pants to do yoga, however, people seem to wear them just about everywhere they go. Now it appears that this fashion staple has created a new trend in plastic surgery. Experts think that yoga pants might be responsible for the increase in people ordering up liposuction. According to the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, lipo went up 12% in the U.K. from 2017 to last year. In the U.S., it went up 5%. One expert says, quote, "The rise comes at a time where a fashion trend for women is athleisure clothing, showing what kind of physique you have rather than covering up." Liposuction remains one of the most popular forms of plastic surgery, on par with breast augmentation and rhinoplasty. It’s often considered an effective solution for those looking to shed stubborn fat and cellulite leftover from weight loss or pregnancy.
