Perfect Abs Without the Gym? What Are Your Options?

You’ve perfected your diet and renewed your commitment to the ab machine at the gym, but when you’re still struggling with extra fat around the waistline, it could take months to catch a glimpse of that six-pack.   

Sculpted abs and a whittled waistline may be the result of hours of hard work at the gym and your body’s natural shape and contours, but you can defy nature with the help of a cosmetic procedure that targets the abdominals. From skin tightening treatments to liposuction, consider these effective cosmetic treatments to get that six-pack without a single crunch:  

How to Lose Belly Fat with Liposuction?

Tumescent liposculpture and ultrasound assisted liposculpture treatments are just two common fat removal treatments that can help recontour the midsection. Liposuction procedures are designed to suction away fatty deposits, and body sculpting procedures can then tighten and tone loose skin left over from the treatment. If you can’t lose those last 5 – 8 pounds around your stomach, you may be a good candidate for liposuction.  

How to Tighten Up the Stomach with a Tummy Tuck?  

The tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) may be the ‘ultimate’ solution for getting that six-pack and achieving a flat, sleek torso.  A tummy tuck is an extensive surgical procedure that gets rid of excess fat and skin around the stomach and restructures the entire torso. You’ll be left with a tight, toned and flat stomach and lose a few pounds in the process.   

How to Get Rid of Abdominal Fat with SmartLipo? 

SmartLipo treatments help remove extra body fat with laser lipolysis, a procedure that can spot-reduce fat on the abdominals and around the waist. SmartLipo is less painful than conventional liposuction, and is an in-office procedure that can be completed after just one office visit.  If you want the effects of liposuction without the downtime and risks involved, SmartLipo may be a better choice for your six-pack plan.  

How to Sculpt the Midsection with Thermage?  

Body by Thermage is typically used to treat cellulite and tighten the skin, but can be used on the abdominal area to smooth out the skin, improve skin tone and create a sleek and sculpted look. Body Thermage is a great choice if you have a few pounds of loose skin to manage and aren’t able to lose the weight with your usual abdominal exercise routine. Thermage can be used with other body sculpting treatments and create a natural, rejuvenating effect.  

How to Recontour the Abs with VelaShape?  

VelaShape treatments are just one of many cellulite removal treatments available that can reduce the appearance of cellulite and tighten and tone the skin. This treatment makes use of radio frequency and infrared light to mobilize tissues and re-contour the body. The VelaShape system has received FDA-approval for cellulite reduction, and may be a valuable solution for getting a slim, sculpted look around the waist.  

How to Improve Contours of the Waistline with Titan?  

Titan skin tightening treatments can be used on almost any part of the body to get rid of hanging skin, reduce wrinkles, and eliminate the appearance of cellulite. Titan skin tightening treatments can also be used on the abdominal area to firm up loose skin tissue and leave the midsection looking smooth and sculpted. This non-invasive procedure can be combined with other body sculpting techniques such as liposuction or mesotherapy injections for enhanced results.  

From liposuction to skin tightening procedures, you have several options for getting that six-pack – without the daily workout. Each of these procedures can be combined with other body sculpting techniques for a complete makeover; maintaining results will involve eating a balanced diet and keeping up with a consistent exercise schedule.
