Achieving the much-coveted six-packs can be the result of hard work at the gym and a healthy diet, but some men and women choose a shortcut method to achieving a tight and toned midsection with the help of liposuction. There was a time when a tummy tuck was the only plastic surgery option for achieving a six-pack, but now some doctors are using innovative liposuction techniques and new tools to get rid of body fat and contour the waistline.
According to Allan Parungao, MD, FACS, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Chicago, Cool Lipo goes a step beyond traditional liposuction because the laser technologies help to tighten and tone the skin while melting body fat. Dr. Parungao uses the Cool Lipo procedure to carve out the perfect six-pack for his male patients, and patients have been having enjoying incredible results from the treatment.
Liposuction continues to be one of the most sought-after procedures in cosmetic surgery, and can be a valuable procedure for those who want to lose a few extra pounds around their waist, hips, thighs or under their arms. Today’s innovative procedures such as Cool Lipo give the surgeon more control over where the fat is removed from, which helps the surgeon create a sculpted, contoured and more aesthetically-pleasing outcome.
Cool Lipo naturally has a skin-tightening effect because the energy from the laser causes the surrounding tissues to contract. This can help bring out the six-pack naturally, and leave the midsection looking very tight, toned and even more muscular. Dr. Parungao says that he uses Cool Lipo to perform a procedure known as ‘abdominal etching’ which helps to narrow the space between the muscles and melt away fat in any depressed areas. The result is a clearly visible six-pack, and tightening of the skin continues as the body produces more collagen to restore and heal the treated tissues.
