Many people with large amounts of weight to lose resort to extreme surgical methods to achieve the weight loss quickly. Surgical methods such as liposuction or gastric bands are extreme, but also invasive and can often have some very undesirable after effects, as you get with any surgical procedure.

Liposuction is very fast and very popular. However the actual amount of fat lost can be minimal. What liposuction does do is to target certain areas of the body, removing fat cells and giving you a more aesthetically pleasing shape. The cost per pound of fat lost though can be huge.

Liposuction does though remove fat cells permanently. The fat cells that are removed by liposuction can never come back- but, and it's a big BUT, if the patient gains a significant amount of weight, then a new fat cell can develop. With a small weight gain, existing fat cells simply get bigger by accumulating more fat within the existing cell. However, with an increase of more than 10% of body weight, you will get new fat cell development in all areas of the body, including areas previously treated by liposuction.

Gastric banding basically reduces the amount of food that can be eaten by shrinking the size of your stomach. The weight loss achieved from this can be vast and fast, however the aesthetic results can be poor with people often left with excess hanging saggy skin that needs to be surgically removed.

In these areas people have been using a variety of "props" to help to quicken the process ranging from hypnosis to extreme fat loss capsules such as Ephalean. What these products do is to help you to control your appetite and cravings which in turn helps to enhance the results of the dieting or exercise.

People using this last approach find that not only do they get the benefit of the weight loss they also feel more energised and the weight lost tends to stay off as it is "real" weight loss rather than something achieved via a surgeons knife.
