Shrinking the Gut: Liposuction for the Stomach By Dr. Fredric Newman on May 13, 2016

A woman's lower body

Dr. Fredric Newman is a leading cosmetic plastic surgeon who is proud to help people in the Darien, CT and Scarsdale, NY area. He offers numerous surgeries to address the diverse aesthetic problems that people face, from facial plastic surgery procedures to liposuction and other body sculpting options.

When it comes to liposuction, the biggest problem area tends to be the stomach. Let's see why that is and why liposuction is a great solution to consider.

The Stomach Can Be a Real Problem Area

Given the way that body weight and mass are distributed, the stomach can be a real problem area for both men and women. You may wind up with a gut, for instance. The lower abdominal area is notorious for being hard to manage. Similarly, you have to consider the sides of the stomach, particularly the love handles.

Many people try to exercise and eat right to help stay slim and trim. Crunches, cardio, and core exercises become staples of a daily routine.

There's a problem, though.

The Limits of Diet and Exercise

Spot reduction just doesn't work. You can do all the crunches and sit-ups you want, but that doesn't guarantee you'll lose that belly fat. The same goes for your diet. Sometimes even the most lean diet possible is not enough to get rid of that last bit of fat.

There's an answer to this problem-free.

About Liposuction

Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that removes unwanted pockets of fat from different parts of the body. Liposuction literally suck out this unwanted body fat, leaving the treated area a bit slimmer and trimmer than it was before.

Ideal Candidates for Liposuction

The best candidates for liposuction are people who have issues with unwanted body fat that will just not respond to diet and exercise. They should be in good health overall and not suffer from any medical conditions that would make a surgical procedure a health risk.

Keep in mind that liposuction is a cosmetic procedure, not a weight loss procedure. Patients are asked to lose as much weight as they can through natural means before they undergo liposuction in order to ensure the best possible results.

Great for the Lower Abdominal Area

Liposuction is an excellent treatment option for the lower abdominal area. With just a little bit of lipo, you can shed that last bit of your gut without any hassles.

Excellent for Love Handles and Flanks

The love handles and sides can be extremely difficult to get rid of even if you are physically fit. Never worry. A little bit of lipo on the love handles will give you that lean look you've been going for all these years.

What Are the Results Like?

The result of liposuction can be extremely satisfying, allowing you to have the athletic abdominal region that you have always wanted to have. Many patients are less self-conscious about wearing tight shirts and tops, and they are less hesitant to be out in the sun.
