Are you looking for a tight and toned tummy? Are crunches and planks just not getting the job done? Liposuction of the abdomen may be just what you are looking for.
The abdomen is prone to stubborn excess fat and is the most targeted area for liposuction. Most fitness experts will agree that to lose abdominal fat, overall body mass index (BMI) will need to decrease. The challenge is that excess fat often still remains in the skin even after weight loss because of the location.
Here’s why fat in the abdomen is common:
- Pregnancy – Most women never get back to their pre-pregnancy weight or shape.
- C-Sections – Women that have undergone a C-section will have the classic bulge right above the incision. This can be strategically tackled with liposuction of the lower abdomen.
- Obesity – Individuals that have previously suffered from weight gain will tend to have fibrous fat. Liposuction can be gently administered to remove excess fat in this region.
- Age – It is very common for men and women to experience weight gain in the abdominal area as part of the ageing process.
Liposuction using the tumescent technique safely and effectively removes fat cells permanently through tiny punctures (the size of a ball-point pen tip). Through these punctures, micro-cannulas are inserted into the subcutaneous fat layers, which allows for optimal fat cell removal. Patients are awake during the procedure, which allows Dr. Wright to re-position the patient to ensure symmetry.
