CoolSculpting, liposuction and tummy tuck are the three most common procedures to remove unwanted stomach fat.
The question that many patients are asking is, “how do I choose the right procedure for me?”
CoolSculpting is a great option for the patient who has been unsuccessful removing the extra fat through traditional methods of diet and exercise.
This procedure uses patented cooling technology to freeze your fat cells in order to delete them from your body.
The target fat cells are processed out of your body through your metabolic system.
Liposuction is a great option for patients who have the good skin and muscle tone to support the procedure.
During the liposuction procedure, a surgeon uses a blunt tipped needle to loosen fat cells which are then sucked out of your body using a vacuum tool.
The tummy tuck is a great option for a patient who has other concerns besides extra fat around the stomach.
This procedure can also address loose or sagging skin, stretch marks and loose muscles.
During the procedure a surgeon will create an incision across the lower stomach and remove any excess skin. They are also able to tighten loose muscles and tighten the general area.
How to Choose
When deciding on any of these procedures the most important step is to seek the services of a board-certified and highly-regarded medical professional.
You doctor should consider your anatomy, your opportunity for recovery time, your body goals and your medical history when determining which procedure is best for you.
