You’ve worked hard. You’ve stuck to your diet, you’ve hit the gym, and you’ve reached all your weight loss goals. However, there seems to be that one pocket of belly fat that keeps hanging on and won’t go away. You do not like the thought of going through a surgery to remove it, but what else can you do? Luckily, we now have the technologies and the techniques for non-surgical belly fat removal. That way, you can finally have the body you’ve wanted without the need for recovery and permanent scars.
A Guide to Non-Surgical Belly Fat Removal
There are several methods to get rid of stubborn belly fat without surgery. Most of them involve breaking down fat cells in targeted spots to diminish the size of the fat deposits below the skin. Many of them, such as Coolsculpting, are very effective. They are generally for tackling those final pockets of fat, as opposed to the entire body.
How Do I Know If I’m a Good Candidate?
Belly fat removal without surgery is not for everyone. In most cases, it is for those who are at or close to their ideal body weight but have pockets that they would like to take care of. These treatments provide results without scarring and with almost no recovery time. There is also no need for anesthesia or incisions. The results also tend to come gradually, so you can keep your fat removal efforts private. The results are also often permanent if a patient continues to follow good fat reduction habits. It is important to remember that the results will vary for everyone, and they will not be immediate. It will take several treatments to get to where you want to be. These types of treatments are also not appropriate as an overall weight loss solution.
It is not just about belly fat removal. These procedures offer you ways to contour your body in many ways. These include tightening your skin, removing hair, and smoothing out cellulite. It is important to consult with a cosmetic dermatologist to see what treatment will be right for you and will help you reach your goals.
Coolsculpting is one of the most innovative and effective options for non-surgical fat removal. It works by using extreme cold to kill the fat cells in a given area. The technician will place a device on the skin where you want to remove fat. This device applies very cold temperatures that will freeze the cells of the fat that is stored there. As it freezes, the fat cells will die. Your skin and muscles will remain unharmed, as they are more resistant to cold. As the fat cells die, they will be flushed away by the body’s natural functions. An entire treatment takes less than an hour, meaning that you can have it done on your lunch break if you would like. You will generally only need 1 or 2 Coolsculpting treatments to get the results you are looking for. As well, provided you follow good weight maintenance habits, the results will be very long-lasting.
Whether you want Coolsculpting or another option, there are many choices for belly fat removal without surgery. If you have been working hard and have just a few pockets of stubborn fat left, contact Ochs Dermatology to discuss how you can get rid of them non-surgically.
