The Miami Beach Plastic Surgery Center and Medspa has conducted a survey to find what people would want to change most about their bodies for a day on the beach, and data revealed interesting findings in Alabama.
Nationally, people had a particular urge to narrow down their waistline, but Alabamians had something different in mind. Patrons of the Yellowhammer state proved to be uncommonly interested in tightening their midsection.
“Nearly a third of all Americans wanted to whittle down their waistline. Broken down by state, it gets even more interesting, with Alabamian tummy-targeters coming comfortably above the national average,” read an email from brightcherrymedia.com. “47.8% of men and women from the Yellowhammer state would like to shake off all that finger-licking fried chicken and maybe even sell their soul to try and slim down from all that, well, tasty soul food!”
The survey found the national average for men and women most interested in sliming their stomach area to be 32.9 percent, 14.9 percent below Alabama’s mark.
Alabama natives also proved to have a high interest in nose alterations. 12 percent of state participants listed their nose as the body part they would most like to change. The national average for nose was 4.7 percent.
“Americans across the country are hoping to tone up these particular areas,” confirms Dr Tachmes of the Miami Beach Plastic Surgery Center and Medspa. “And the good news is that they’re all very easy to improve. Switching to a healthier lifestyle – eating well, upping how often you exercise, ditching bad habits like junk food, alcohol and laziness – can result in huge improvements, in a relatively short space of time.”
However, Dr Tachmes understands that some people will seek more drastic measures as a last resort. “If you’ve made big changes in your life, but you’re still unhappy with your progress, then you can consider aesthetic treatment to help give you the body you’ve always wanted. Techniques such as liposuction can remove stubborn areas of fat that exercise is, ultimately, not shifting.”
