Step one: Buy trendy yoga leggings. Step two: Get the body to wear them.

Chic leggings and bra tops have long been symbols of “athleisure,” which has all but dominated the fashion industry as of late. Now, says researcher Rajiv Grover, the trend is driving consumers to go to extreme measures to achieve the body-conscious look, as UK data reveals a 12 percent increase in liposuction procedures — from 2,039 in 2017 to 2,286 in 2018.

“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,” says Grover.

US data show a similar trend: According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), liposuction procedures went up 5 percent between 2017-18, with about 12,000 more in just one year.

“People should know that liposuction is not risk-free,” he says. For example, Denise Hendry, wife of Scotland soccer captain Colin Hendry, died in 2009 during one of many corrective procedures following a botched liposuction job.

“People need to be aware that liposuction is an invasive procedure that carries risks. And it is not a cure for being overweight. There is no shortcut, although it can help with stubborn areas of fat,” says Grover. “My advice? Eat a healthy diet and exercise if you want to get that gym body.”
