For those of you hoping the Charlotte Crosby liposuction rumors were true, we have to apologize. They probably aren’t. The rumors themselves began when the Geordie Shore (honestly, I’ve never watched this television show) star posted a selfie on Instagram that showed off her, how shall we say, well sculpted tummy.
Debunking Those Charlotte Crosby Liposuction Rumors
There’s little doubt that Crosby is fit. In fact, she’s released several workout and fitness DVDs on her own. That said, being fit is no guarantee that you won’t need liposuction (more on that later). Instead, we’re taking Crosby at her word when she says that she hasn’t had any lipo performed.
There are a couple of reasons why. First and foremost, Crosby has a record of “trolling” her followers in order to stoke plastic surgery rumors. Second, Crosby has admitted to getting several procedures done in the past, including a rhinoplasty. This kind of openness and transparency makes her denials much more credible.
Do You Need Lipo If You’re Fit?
As we mentioned before, just because Crosby was fit doesn’t mean she might not be tempted by liposuction. In fact, that’s one of the most common ways that modern liposuction is employed. It used to be that people would think of liposuction as a kind of weight loss technique.
But modern liposuction is used primarily for body contouring. In other words, liposuction is used to help you sculpt your body, rather than eliminating significant amounts of unwanted fat. Don’t get us wrong: liposuction still eliminates fat (sometimes in larger quantities). It’s just that the target is a little different.
Modern liposuction is used to eliminate unwanted areas of stubborn fat. These are areas that of fat that seem immune to diet and exercise—in other words, no matter how well you eat or how much you exercise, these areas of fat remain. Liposuction allows surgeons to shape those areas of the body, ensuring that the final results look quite natural.
Couldn’t Crosby Have Gotten Liposuction?
Ultimately, yes, Crosby could have gotten liposuction. But we’re not really all that interested in chasing around rumors and gossip. If Crosby says she didn’t get liposuction, that’s good enough for us.
However, it is worth pointing to as a kind of educational moment. One of the pieces of evidence that internet users pointed to in the “court of liposuction opinion” was Crosby’s belly button (apparently, it looked misshapen).
In general, liposuction will have little impact on the belly button. A tummy tuck, on the other hand, will. The problem is that tummy tucks are designed to deal with a completely different issue (excess skin). It doesn’t make for very compelling evidence of a liposuction procedure.
Liposuction is No Mark of Shame
The human body can be exceptionally difficult to control and “sculpt.” And yet, we’re all fed the notion day in and day out that we should be able to do exactly that. With enough diet, exercise, and determination, you should be able to “sculpt” your body, right?
Unfortunately, biology gets in the way. Your body has a habit of hanging on to fat (it makes sense, from a survival-in-nature standpoint). That can be pretty annoying if you’re trying to get rid of those little pouches on the sides of your hips. Liposuction is a way to exert some of that control over the “sculpting.”
If you’re thinking about liposuction, you should be considering the following:
- Are you attempting to eliminate a “stubborn” area of fat?
- Are you a relatively stable weight (gaining or losing weight after your liposuction can diminish your results)
- Are you generally healthy enough for surgery?
- Have you tried using diet and exercise to “sculpt” your body, and if so to what extent?
- Will your require any additional procedures, such as a tummy tuck, in order to get your desired final results?
- Where do you want to have liposuction? The tummy is not the only area where liposuction can be performed.
In other words, liposuction can be used to address a wide variety of issues and concerns. That makes it an incredibly versatile procedure—it’s not used only to lose weight. Instead, it’s designed to contour the body. So, yeah, those Charlotte Crosby liposuction rumors are very likely untrue.
But even if they were true—there’d be nothing wrong with it. A good success from liposuction should be celebrated!
