The abdomen is a trouble area for fat storage for all genders. Whether you have a tummy pooch leftover after pregnancy or middle age has resulted in a “gut” that will not shrink, it can be a frustrating area for people. In many cases, no amount of calorie restriction or exercise will flatten a stomach, especially when you are not overweight. The solution may be abdominal liposuction to flatten and reshape the stomach, which we offer at Preserve your Pretty Skin and Body in Johns Creek, GA.
Genetics, hormone changes, aging and other factors contribute to where fat is stored and how it is burned. No number of sit-ups or crunches will burn fat specifically on your abdomen – they only will strengthen the muscles underneath the fat. You cannot target fat to burn, but you can decide to have it removed through plastic surgery.
Liposuction is one of the most requested cosmetic procedures for men and women, especially abdominal lipo. This method of fat removal permanently eliminates the fat cells and contours the stomach area. Once fat cells are removed, they do not regenerate, so the changes to your body shape will last. The results can be incredible, giving you a flat, youthful stomach that enhances your overall body appearance.
Abdomen Lipo Contouring
Abdomen lipo procedures are performed using small incisions to access the fat deposits. The fat is mobilized and blood vessels are constricted, then the fat is suctioned through a cannula. Dr. Myla uses cutting-edge technology and techniques to reshape and contour the abdomen for the desired results and a quicker recovery. This is an outpatient procedure that can be performed in about an hour, and patients can return home the same day to begin their recovery.
After abdominal liposuction, you can expect swelling and bruising, but this will go away as you heal. Over the following weeks, you will see your stomach become flatter and more contoured for the desired effect. Your clothes will fit better, and you can enjoy the benefits of feeling confident in your appearance.
