love handle fat treatment san diegoExcess fat in the stomach or abdominal region can be frustrating and greatly affect one’s self-esteem. Many patients wonder how they will ever lose stomach fat that is causing them to feel unattractive. Of course, the first step in trying to eliminate excess abdominal fat is through a healthy diet and exercise regimen. For some, however, certain areas just do not respond and the stubborn fat remains. At Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego, our liposuction experts can create an abdominal liposuction treatment plan to address your stubborn fatty areas, remove unwanted fat, and give you the results you want!

What is Abdominal Liposuction?

Abdominal liposuction is the removal of stomach fat through small incisions and specialized instruments called cannulas. Our doctors generally utilize the tumescent liposculpture method because of its many benefits. The tumescent liposculpture procedure involves the use of a special numbing solution that is injected into the abdominal region before the procedure begins. This makes the abdominal liposuction procedure much more comfortable for the patient, and the solution also helps reduce the amount of bleeding experienced.

Once the abdominal liposuction area has been filled with the numbing solution, the doctor will use small cannulas inserted through tiny incisions to suction out the excess, unwanted fat. The doctor will artistically sculpt the area so as to give the patient the most aesthetically pleasing, natural looking result.

Abdominal lipo recovery is relatively easy. Most patients can return to work and start moving around about one week after the stomach lipo is performed, and generally experience just mild discomfort. The compression garment can be removed about 2 weeks after abdominal liposuction treatment, and patients may begin to see some results a few weeks later. Keep in mind, though, that it does take several months for full stomach liposuction results to be evident.

If you are looking for subtle fat reduction for a small area of fat in the stomach, you may be a good candidate for the non-invasive CoolSculpting procedure or non-surgical Liposonix. CoolSculpting and Liposonix can eliminate small amounts of excess fat without a single incision and no downtime!
