Excessive weight is a pressing problem for a lot of people. Most people can reduce weight with some hard work that involves following a proper diet and exercise routine. But what about the excessive fat on the belly that just cannot be addressed? Yes, even those with the perfect weight have a bulging tummy that affects their whole figure. This problem is extremely frustrating and annoying for both men and women. Everyone wants to stay healthy and appear attractive. For this purpose, we like to keep our body proportioned, slim, and smart.
Having excess belly fat or a bulging tummy is the most common problem that many people complain about. It stays unsolved even if proper diet and regular exercise are part of one’s routine. It affects a person’s appearance which leads to a lack of confidence.
But there is good news for those who want to get rid of a bulging tummy. When diet and exercise are not helping lose belly fat, cosmetic surgery may do the job. The patient can go for a suitable procedure among several options available for the removal of tummy fat.
We have discussed the most commonly opted for methods below.
Methods to Getting Rid of Belly Fat
Several products such as oral medications, gels, and creams are available that help in getting rid of belly fat. These products promise to give beneficial results but their results are not guaranteed. In most cases, either they prove to be ineffective or time taking. Furthermore, applying chemicals on the skin may also cause harm or side effects. So, it is not recommended to go for such options.
There are certain reliable options available in the form of surgical procedures. These procedures promise guaranteed results. Moreover, the patient can always consult the surgeon who performed the treatment if they are facing any complications. For reducing tummy fat, two methods are commonly used, which are:
- Tummy tuck
Both of these procedures have proven to be effective in reducing belly fat. However, there is a condition of selecting an experienced, highly qualified, and board-certified cosmetic surgeon. Liposuction can help remove a limited amount of fat while tummy tuck surgery can remove large quantities of fat.
Tummy Tuck Surgery
The most effective procedure through which belly fat can be removed is tummy tuck surgery. Tummy tuck surgery is helpful for the removal of large quantities of fat and it gives permanent results. During the procedure, excess skin and fat are removed and muscles of the abdomen are tightened. This means that this procedure also tones the abdominal muscles besides removing excess skin and fat.
The procedure has two types – full tummy tuck and mini tummy tuck. The patient can select the suitable one according to the recommendations of their surgeon.
A full tummy tuck is suitable for those who need major changes. Moreover, it is suited for those who require tightening of muscles besides the removal of excess skin and fat. This procedure also involves the formation of a new navel.
A mini tummy tuck makes alterations in the lower abdomen only and does not tighten the muscles. This procedure involves comparatively large incisions and requires time for proper recovery but gives highly beneficial results.
Most women undergo this procedure to get their pre-pregnancy body back and reduce stretch marks. However, anyone who wants major changes in the tummy area is a good candidate for a tummy tuck.
Liposuction is a procedure that can contour the abdomen and waist area by removing excess fat. However, it cannot be the alternative for weight loss. During the procedure, fat is broken down or liquefied and then removed with the help of a small cannula. The procedure is invasive and performed under general anesthesia but gives permanent results.
It is considered to be a highly beneficial procedure for the removal of belly fat. It is suitable for those who do not have a saggy abdomen but need to remove a small amount of fat.
In this procedure, a small cannula is used to break down the fat, which is then removed through the vacuum. This procedure is less invasive as compared to a tummy tuck but can remove a limited quantity of fat. Furthermore, it requires comparatively less time for recovery.
Some other non-invasive procedures are also available for belly fat removal but above-given procedures are super effective if performed correctly. The only thing required is to seek an experienced and board-certified plastic surgeon for this. He can guide about selecting the best suitable procedure and get the maximum benefit from it.
