Stomach liposuction? Hmmm, I wonder…
So, you worked hard, kept to your routine of diet and exercise and finally made it to your goal weight. Awesome! Good for you! There is just one thing that concerns you, your belly got smaller but it is not nearly as toned as you would like it to be. There is still some fat there and it just will not go away, no matter that you have done what seems like a million crunches.
You have heard that this happens. But you thought you were different or you thought that the people who talked about it just weren’t working out as hard as they said they were. Well, now here you are, right in the same boat. You know how hard you worked every single day and even though it has gotten significantly smaller, you still have that stubborn little paunch that will not go away. What can you do about it?
Consider stomach liposuction. You have done most of the work already and wouldn’t it be the greatest thing in the world to have the rest of it gone? You could get rid of the stubborn fat and have the doctor contour your stomach to show off the six pack hiding underneath.
Sounds appealing, doesn’t it? So, how do you find a doctor you can trust? One word, research. Make sure that whomever you choose is a board-certified plastic surgeon. Make a list of several you think are promising candidates and then call and ask for references. If consultations are free then make appointments with each one and ask to see some of their work. Do not just blindly pick someone out of the phone book. If you know someone who has had some work done ask for a reference but still check the doctor out completely before making any commitments.
Liposuction techniques have changed over the years and have become safer and more effective due to the development and use of lasers to remove stubborn belly fat. The use of the laser requires only a very small incision, melts the fat away and suctions it out. Using the laser is not nearly as invasive as the traditional liposuction technique and results in a smaller scar, less chance of hemorrhage because the laser automatically cauterizes the blood vessels as it goes and less pain associated with the procedure. Which means, and this is the best of all, a much shorter recovery time.
Use of the laser also firms the skin during the procedure so there is no need for a tummy tuck to tighten the skin afterward. No girdle, no elastic bandages and no repositioning of your belly button required.
You probably won’t need a narcotic pain reliever either. Tylenol will probably control your pain quite nicely but be sure to request something more if you think you are going to need it. Everyone’s pain tolerance is different, do not suffer needlessly.
Stomach liposuction is a great option for people with stubborn belly fat.
