Cosmetic Surgery Procedures for Trimming Your Waistline

It could take several months to work off those extra post-holiday pounds and trim down your waistline. If you don’t have the time and patience to exercise and diet those extra inches away, cosmetic surgery offers a quick-fix solution for your waistline woes. Board-certified plastic surgeons can perform a very simple procedure to get rid of excess fat around the waistline and give you a sleeker, more sculpted appearance. Today’s advances in plastic and cosmetic surgery make it easier than ever to get that nip and tuck within a few hours, and heal as quickly as a week after your procedure.

If you want to trim down that waistline and lose a few inches without diet and exercise, set up a consultation with a plastic surgeon in your area. Your surgeon can discuss the pros and cons of several liposuction and non-invasive body contouring procedures, and help you lose those inches for good.

VASER Lipo for a Trimmer Waistline

VASER liposuction is among the most popular procedures for trimming down the waistline and getting rid of unwanted inches. This innovative cosmetic surgery procedure has a very high approval rating among experienced physicians and is especially effective for targeting very small amounts of fatty tissue. The VASER lipo technique uses ultrasound technology to selectively break down fatty tissue without affecting the surrounding connective tissues and blood vessels. This procedure promises very rapid healing and also has a light skin tightening effect, creating a very smooth and contoured appearance.

SmartLipo for a Trimmer Waistline

SmartLipo is considered to be a “fat melting” technique because it involves melting the fat with a laser before the fat is removed from the body. A very thin laser fiber is fired into the tissues and the heat breaks up only the fatty tissue. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia and can be very effective for trimming down that waistline and getting rid of several inches within one session. You may need to wear compression garments until the swelling goes down, but you can expect a fairly speedy recovery with this innovative liposuction procedure.

Zeltiq CoolSculpting to Trim Your Waistline

If you don’t want to go under the knife but want to lose those stubborn inches permanently, consider Zeltiq CoolSculpting. This is one of the newest fat reduction procedures on the market and is especially effective for getting rid of smaller pockets of fat. The Zeltiq system is based on cryolipolysis, a procedure that involves freezing the fat cells until they die. The fat cells are removed from the body naturally and there is absolutely no trauma to the skin. You can expect to see full results within 8 to 12 weeks after the treatment.
