The latest advancements in technology have made it possible to get a slimmer body using new belly fat removal techniques that consists of both non-surgical sculpting methods and surgical methods. You no longer have to join those endless gym sessions and try to lose weight by working hard at the gym. This article is about the different non-surgical fat reduction procedures and Belly Fat Removal Surgery techniques including abdominal liposuction; you can consider if you are interested in getting a flatter. 

What is body-sculpting?

Body-sculpting involves different techniques whose primary goal is to destroy fat cells without the need for surgery. This is achieved by freezing fat cells, penetrating heat via radiofrequency or ultrasound therapy. These techniques help you get rid of stored fat and shape your abdomen, thighs, upper arms and bottom.

What body-sculpting treatments are available?

In today’s time, there is a wide range of fat removal body sculpting treatments available. They include the following:

Cold treatments (such as Coolsculpting)

Coolsculpting also known as cryolipolysis is a type of cold treatment in which the fat cells are frozen and destroyed. This method was discovered many years back when during the medical study they found that the fat around the cheeks of the child had reduced due to continuous sucking on an ice lolly. In coolsculpting, the fat cells are blasted with a suction vacuum that is applied to the desired area, where the fat cells are frozen to -11 until they crystalize. 

Heat treatments (such as SculpSure)

In this technique, lasers are used that penetrate the skin to reach the underlying fat cells and destroys them. The destroyed fat cells are then later excreted/eliminated by the body. A great example of heat treatment is SculpSure in which the arms of the device are connected to the target area such as the abdomen, and the machine is turned on which starts to fire laser pulses into your body.

Ultrasound treatments (such as Ultrashape)

In ultrasound treatments such as UltraShape, ultrasound waves are used to break down fat cells. The positive point about this type of treatment is that you are not connected to a machine, instead of a technician manually moves a device around the target area that emits ultrasounds that destroy fat cells. It is one of the non-invasive fat removal techniques for the abdomen. 

Radiofrequency treatments (such as truSculpt and Vanquish)

In radiofrequency treatments such as truSculpt and Vanquish, energy is used to create heat that effectively destroys fat cells. It is advised that you drink a lot of water before this procedure because the energy targets the water inside the cells. 

What is liposuction

Liposuction is a type of cosmetic procedure that removes fat which you are having difficulty in removing through exercise and diet. A professional dermatological or plastic surgeon performs this treatment method on your abdomen region. Some other common sights of liposuction are Hips, thighs, buttocks, back, arms, and the face. Liposuction may also be performed as an additional procedure during other plastic surgery methods such as breast reductions and tummy tucks. Unlike the above mentioned non-invasive body sculpting treatment procedures, liposuction is a surgical solution. 

Types of liposuction

There are multiple different types of liposuction treatment solution available. They all involve the use of a thin tube called cannula, which is connected to a vacuum that sucks the fat from your body. 

Tumescent liposuction- Is a very common method. In tumescent liposuction, the plastic surgeon first injects a sterile solution into the target area from where fat is to be removed. The sterile solution consists of salt water, lidocaine and epinephrine. The solution makes it easier to suck the fat, reduces pain and blood loss. 

Laser-assisted liposuction or SmartLipo- In laser lipo without incision method, a laser is used to produce a burst of energy that liquefies the fat. 

Lipo cost

Unlike the above mentioned non-invasive and non-surgical methods, liposuction is a surgical process that can be more expensive. The average cost of a liposuction procedure in 2018 was $3,500. This value depends upon different factors such as location and the area you wish to get treated. 


How long is the recovery period for liposuction?

In most cases the recovery is quick, and the patient can return to his daily activities within a few days. Bruising, swelling and soreness should be expected to last for a few weeks.

How much pain will I have after a tummy tuck?

After a tummy tuck, you will probably feel moderate pain, which can be easily kept under control with the intake of pain medicines. You will also observe signs of swelling that may last up to 3 months. The drains might be left for many days after surgery which require a lot of care and attention.  

How to get my stomach go heal after liposuction?

After liposuction, you should take an adequate amount of rest. You should wear compression garments, take antibiotics to fight any infections present, take pain medicines and properly care for your drains in order to speed up the recovery process.
