If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your stomach, you’re probably wondering what you can do. It’s uncomfortable and impractical to wear body shaping underwear every day. Also, every time you take it off, you look in the mirror and your heart sinks. If you’ve lost your self-confidence because of your stomach fat, it’s time to find a solution.
Here at Art Lipo, we could have the answer for you. When it comes to liposuction, belly fat is a common area that our surgeons treat. The results we achieve are impressive, and we can restore your self-esteem with this minimally invasive procedure.
What Kind of Fat Can Liposuction of Belly Fat Remove?
If you have fat above your muscle wall on your stomach, liposuction of belly fat could help. You’ll be able to establish easily if you can remove your stomach fat. Simply grab it with your hand. Does your belly feel hard under your hand? If you’re unable to grasp the fat, it will probably be below the stomach muscles. However, if your stomach is soft and you can grasp a handful of fat, you are a good candidate.
I Have A Large Stomach – Can Liposuction Help Me?
Even if you have a very large stomach and a large hang of fat, liposuction could help you. Our expert in liposuction, Dr. Su, has perfected an impressive and very complete liposuction of belly fat technique. While many other surgeons would simply recommend an abdominoplasty, Dr. Su can often produce excellent results with liposuction alone. Even in difficult cases when other surgeons have refused to carry out liposuction, Dr. Su may be able to assist. He can achieve tremendous skin retraction and tightening, even in patients with large amounts of belly fat.
Could I Get Six-Pack Abs?
Do you already have strong abdominal muscles with definition and muscle ridges below the layer of fat? If so, there is an excellent chance that six-pack abs could be possible. When Dr. Su carries out liposuction of the belly fat in both women and men, six packs can often appear. This is thanks to his extremely complete sculpting technique. The same result is not usually possible with other cosmetic surgeons. This is because they leave more fat behind. Therefore, you cannot see the muscle definition.
Will I Need A Tummy Tuck?
Most patients who have a consultation with Dr. Su for stomach fat are suitable candidates for cosmetic surgery. While many patients can benefit from liposuction of belly fat, others require a tummy tuck.
Do you have a moderate or small amount of hang on the lower stomach or looseness? If so, Dr. Su can create excellent results. However, there could be a few wrinkles above the belly button or at the abdomen’s lower edge. Lots of patients are happy with these wrinkles and opt for liposuction. Others choose to have a tummy tuck instead to eliminate the possibility of wrinkling. Often, however, the liposuction option is a better one. A tummy tuck results in a scar horizontally across the lower stomach. It also requires a general anesthetic, with the associated extended downtime and longer recovery. These factors often deter patients from opting for the tummy tuck. Meanwhile, belly fat liposuction involves only a local anesthetic and has a much shorter recovery time without scarring.
There are some patients, however, who would achieve a better result with a tummy tuck. These include those with extremely wrinkly skin before liposuction or who have very excessive skin hanging on their lower abdomen. Also, if patients want to wear a bikini without any visible wrinkling, they may want to consider a tummy tuck.
