Abdominal fat can be the hardest type of body fat to get rid of with diet and exercise. If you tend to accumulate body fat around your midsection and on your stomach, it could just be because of genetics and not necessarily your diet and lifestyle. If you do want to achieve a slim and flat torso, consider liposuction or a non-surgical fat reduction procedure. Many cosmetic surgeons now offer simple abdominal fat reduction procedures that can help you achieve flat and sculpted stomach, and get rid of abdominal fat permanently.
While liposuction will take away the extra fat, how you take care of your body after the procedure will determine how long you will keep that slim silhouette. Many people fear gaining weight after surgery, especially since they cannot work out during the recovery stages.
