Lose Belly Fat with These Plastic Surgery Procedures
posted on 6/17/2013
Belly fat can be one of the hardest types of fat to lose, regardless of your weight, body shape and size. Men and women both struggle with losing that layer of fat over the abdomen, and diet and exercise alone aren’t usually enough to get rid of belly fat. Plastic surgery may be the answer for many, and there are several procedures that can help to get rid of belly fat and create a flat, toned and sculpted appearance.
The tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is one of the most effective procedures for getting rid of belly fat. In this procedure, the fat is removed and the muscles and tissues can be repositioned to create a flat, smooth and sculpted appearance. Tummy tucks are usually performed on patients who have loose or lax skin over the abdominal area, or on women who have had children and are struggling with losing weight from the abdomen and waistline. Keep in mind that this is a fairly extensive surgery and does involve some downtime.
Radio Frequency Liposuction
Radio frequency liposuction is an innovative liposuction technique that uses bi-polar energy waves to dissolve the fat before it is extracted. This plastic surgery procedure is especially effective for getting rid of belly fat because it can remove both superficial fat and fat that is located deeper in the tissues. If you have always had a “tummy bump” or struggle with losing fat on top of your abdomen, you may be a good candidate for the radio frequency liposuction procedure.
VASER Liposuction is an innovative form of laser liposuction that is especially effective for body sculpting and body contouring. The VASER lipo procedure is designed for patients who are already fairly fit, but want more definition around their waist and stomach. The VASER liposuction procedure can remove the layer of body fat on top of the stomach and also tighten and contour the stomach and waist to create a streamlined appearance. If you want to achieve a six-pack abs or just want a flatter, defined waist, consider undergoingVASER liposuction.
Most liposuction procedures that get rid of belly fat are designed for patients who only have a few pounds of extra fat to lose, or for those who want to achieve a more sculpted and toned appearance. Regardless of the type of plastic surgery procedure you choose to get rid of belly fat, you will need to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly so that you maintain a fit and toned appearance.
