look thinner st george utah | riverside medical artsWould you like to look slimmer and feel more confident? There are a few simple things you can do to look thinner.

Short-Term Solutions

Improve Your Posture

Improving your posture is the fastest and easiest way to improve your appearance. Keep your chin up and your back straight. It may take some effort at first, but improving your posture will help you look and feel better almost instantly.

Invest In New Clothing

There are many simple wardrobe changes you can make that will help you look slimmer.

  • Invest in shapewear and a bra that fits correctly. Shapewear will smooth out your curves and hide imperfections. Get measured and invest in a bra that fits well. A bra that properly supports you will make you look slimmer and help your waist stand out.
  • Choose dark clothing and solid colors. Black is a classic option, but dark blues, purples, and greens can be slimming while still adding some color to your wardrobe.
  • Lengthen your whole body with heels. For maximum impact, wear nude heels when you’re wearing shorter dresses or skirts.

Long-Term Solutions

Change Your Exercise Routine

Adding strength training to your workout routine comes with many benefits. In many cases, lifting weights and doing bodyweight exercises can take inches off your waist, thighs, and upper arms, even if you don’t lose any pounds. If you don’t enjoy lifting weights, consider taking a yoga class or a Pilates class. Cardio is important, but other exercises will build tone throughout your body and help you look and feel better.

Get Help Losing The Extra Weight

While looking slimmer is a great start, the best and most lasting solution is to lose those stubborn extra pounds. Losing the extra weight won’t just make you look better, you’ll have more energy, be less prone to illness, and lower your risk for serious health problems like diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Riverside Medical Arts has a variety of programs that can help you lose the extra pounds. Some patients can benefit from appetite suppressant therapy while others need hormone balancing therapy to treat thyroid problems. Schedule a consultation to learn more about your options

Find Out How To Get Fuller Looking Lips

lip surgery at riverside medical arts in st. george utahFull lips can make you look younger and more attractive. If your lips are naturally thin or if they’ve lost volume with age, there are ways to make your lips look fuller—keep reading to find out how.

1.Try a different lipstick: Bold red lips are sexy, but darker colors make your lips look thinner. If you want to make your lips look larger with very little work, something as simple as switching to a light pink or nude colored lipstick could do the trick.

2. Gently exfoliate your lips once in awhile: Dead skin can make your lips look thinner and duller—and it can make it harder to apply makeup.

3. Use lip balm that contains mint: Mint naturally makes your lips look a little larger, and it can feel refreshing.

4. Create a larger canvas: Applying concealer to your lips and then overdrawing them (just barely) with lip liner can give you a larger canvas to work with. When you fill in your lips with lipstick that is the same color as your liner, your lips will look slightly larger.

5. Try lip gloss: Lip gloss can make your lips look moist and full. Wear it alone or dab it in the middle of your lips after applying your normal lipstick.

6. Consider lip augmentation: At Riverside Medical Arts, patients can choose from a variety of lip enhancing procedures.

Some patients choose dermal filler injections that can give the lips a softer and more full appearance. Dermal fillers offer great looking results, but they don’t last forever. When dermal fillers are used to enhance the lips, recovery is quick and there is almost no downtime.

Lips can also be plumped using fat from other places in the body. Fat injection may require a short recovery period, but it is still a minimally invasive procedure.

Patients interested in permanent results should ask about the Perma Facial Implant procedure. This treatment uses soft silicone that cannot rupture or degrade over time. This procedure is approved by the FDA and it offers natural looking, permanent results.

If you’d like to learn more about getting fuller lips, schedule a consultation at Riverside Medical Arts.
