Can liposuction get rid of belly fat?
Belly fat is among the most difficult types of fat to lose by diet and exercise. Even those who engage in sporty activity can get belly fat, and crunches alone are rarely enough to get rid of it.
To tone and sculpt the midsection, some people may turn to medications, diets, and nonsurgical fat melting procedures. These, on the other hand, may have just a minor effect on belly fat in some people, not to mention the hazards connected with calorie restriction and weight loss pills.
But what other possibilities do you have?
If you haven’t been able to safely sculpt and tone your belly via your own efforts, our board-certified cosmetic surgeons in Los Altos would be delighted to meet with you and discuss your options. This surgical fat removal treatment has a high rate of success and can be used to remove many pounds of bulky, ugly, and unattractive fat from practically any part of the body, including the belly. In fact, one of the most common liposuction treatment locations is the core of the body, which includes the abdominal area, hips, waist, and low back. We can analyze the collection of fat in your abdominal area during your initial appointment to help you decide if liposuction is the best solution for your needs.
We offer both tumescent and power-assisted liposuction at Altos Oaks Plastic Surgery (PAL). These lipo methods allow for the removal of greater quantities of fat while also reducing the danger of tissue and muscle harm. It should be emphasized, however, that none of these liposuction procedures is suitable for weight loss.
Liposuction is a body reshaping surgery for persons who are close to or at their optimum weight. A private and personal consultation with one of our professional and caring plastic surgeons is the best approach to find out if liposuction can give you the results you want.
Tumescent liposuction and PAL can help with belly fat removal, but they can’t help with concerns like diastasis recti, a separation of the abdominal muscles that can happen after pregnancy or after a major weight gain. Tummy tuck surgery, which is generally paired with liposuction for best stomach toning, will be required to address this condition.
How Long Does It Take To Get Back On Your Feet?
Every person’s recovery from liposuction is different, however most people are able to return to work within a few days and resume normal activities within two weeks. Depending on the location or areas treated, as well as other elements unique to your body and operation, more advanced or complex workouts may need to be postponed for four to six weeks. Throughout your rehabilitation, we will continue to work with you to ensure your comfort, safety, and pleasure.
We can go over recuperation in greater depth during your initial visit to assist you prepare for the days after your liposuction treatment.
What Is the Definition of Abdominal Fat?
There are two forms of fat in the abdomen: superficial (or subcutaneous) and deep (or visceral). Visceral fat is found inside the abdominal cavity, around the internal organs, and cannot be removed with liposuction. Deep fat can only be cured by diet and exercise. Fortunately, the vast majority of people have more superficial fat than deep fat. Liposuction can be used to remove subcutaneous fat, which is located directly beneath the skin.
You may have regions of your body that stubbornly defy diet and exercise, whether you have always been in good condition or have worked hard to acquire a slimmed-down figure. This can be aggravating, particularly if you live a healthy lifestyle yet still don’t look the way you want to. Fortunately, several liposuction techniques can effectively and permanently remove these fat deposits.
