3 Ways To Permanently Remove Stubborn Belly Fat

Posted by Dr. Patrick Proffer on January 22, 2019

Nothing can destroy your confidence like fat rolls – especially on your stomach. You may find yourself continuously wearing loose-fitting shirts or putting off buying a new bathing suit. Your favorite clothes stay buried in the back of your closet. You avoid looking in the mirror as much as possible.

Sometimes, even when you exercise regularly and follow a healthy diet, you still can’t manage to tone your stomach. And that can be incredibly frustrating.

But what if you could get the flat stomach you’ve always wanted — without damaging your back with thousands of crunches?

In recent years, fat removal procedures have become the go-to solution for hundreds of thousands of Americans who find themselves struggling with stubborn fat. These treatments are proven to remove as much as 8 pounds of fat, and once the fat is removed, it will not grow back.

So what are the best fat reduction treatments? And which are you an ideal candidate for?

Below, we’ll outline and compare the top two options available so you can decide which option might be right for you.

Liposuction (Lipoplasty)

Liposuction is the second most popular cosmetic procedure in the country, and for good reason. The treatment slims and reshapes your problem areas by suctioning out excess fat deposits. It received an 8 out of 10 rating for patient satisfaction according to a 2012 study published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

Liposuction can improve more than just the shape of your stomach. It can also treat excess fat on the thighs, hips, buttocks, upper arms, back, inner knee, chest area, calves, neck, and more. It can be performed alone or alongside other treatment options, such as a tummy tuck.

Some of the biggest benefits of liposuction include:

  • You can treat more areas and larger areas in one procedure.
  • More consistent and predictable results than noninvasive treatments.
  • Either local or general anesthesia may be used.
  • One treatment is often sufficient to reshape problem areas.

Liposuction won’t remove cellulite, and it’s recommended that you are within 30% of your ideal body weight at the time of the procedure. It’s also important to keep in mind that the treatment won’t address loose, saggy skin – such as the kind associated with dramatic weight loss.


Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

While liposuction removes excess fat deposits, tummy tuck surgery removes excess fat and skin. In most cases, a tummy tuck can restore weakened or separated abdominal muscles, creating a smoother and firmer stomach.

Several factors can contribute to a loose, flabby stomach. These may include age, genetics, pregnancy, past surgery, and even dramatic fluctuations in weight. By removing the loose skin, a tummy tuck improves your overall abdominal profile. Patients who combined liposuction and a tummy tuck reported a 99% satisfaction rating.

Some of the biggest benefits of liposuction include:

  • Patients report an improvement in both abdominal tone and posture.
  • Many women experience a reduction of bladder leakage and stress-related urinary incontinence
  • Studies have shown that individuals who undergo a tummy tuck in an effort to lose weight are more likely to keep the weight off post-surgery.

Tummy tucks cannot correct stretch marks. They may be removed or somewhat improved, however, if they are located on the areas of excess skin treated. And although the results of a tummy tuck are technically permanent, the results can be greatly diminished or even reversed by significant fluctuations in your weight.


Ready To Have The Flat Stomach You’ve Always Dreamed Of?

Belly-fat-removal-prepAge, a changing metabolism, health conditions, and even hormones can all play a factor in your ability to tone your body. Unfortunately, the stomach is often the hardest area to improve through diet and exercise alone.

With fat removal treatments such as liposuction or a tummy tuck, you can achieve the flat stomach you’ve worked so hard for, even if you aren’t seeing results from your workouts. These treatments have an 80% or higher patient satisfaction rate, provide real results, and have helped hundreds of thousands of Americans feel confident.
