Liposuction for Stomach Fat Reduction
Still one of the most popular surgical procedures out there, traditional liposuction remains an excellent option for patients who want to reduce stomach fat. Liposuction can be effective at targeting abdominal fat, particularly the kind that won’t respond to traditional diet and exercise.
At El Paso Cosmetic Surgery, we combine traditional liposuction methods with laser heat energy to help reduce post-op swelling and bruising. The laser heat energy is delivered via the cannula to the targeted treatment area; this heat liquefies the fat, which is then drained through the cannula. The initial results are almost immediate, especially for patients who have a noticeable roll around the stomach and waistline.
Liposuction is an excellent option for patients who have good skin laxity and are about 30 pounds away from their ideal weight. Keep in mind that liposuction is not a weight-loss solution.
