The abdomen is the most frequently treated area with Cool Liposuction. Fat deposits on the stomach can be extremely resistant to diet or exercise. Most of Dr. Prasad’s Cool Lipo patients follow healthy eating habits and exercise programs. However, they find that despite the other benefits their exercise and training brings them, it has little impact on their abdominal fat. Fortunately, abdominal fat does respond extremely well to Cool liposuction. Dr. Prasad finds that men and women desiring a flat stomach are very happy with the results of Cool Lipo. Abdomen Liposuction is not a replacement for diet or exercise, but it helps selected patients get rid of stubborn areas that do not respond to other weight loss methods.
Local anesthetic with a light sedation is all that is required for Cool Liposuction on the abdomen. The costs and risks associated with general anesthesia are eliminated. In addition, trauma to the fat tissue and bleeding are dramatically reduced with the Cool Lipo technique. Like other diet-resistant fat deposit sites, there is a genetic predisposition for the fat to localize in the abdominal area for many patients. This localized subcutaneous fat (fat right under the abdominal skin and above the abdominal muscles) responds well to Cool Liposuction.
In the past, the treatment of choice for a flat stomach was the tummy tuck or abdominoplasty. While still very effective for some patients, the Cool Lipo results are often so impressive that the tummy tuck is no longer necessary. With Cool Lipo, it is easier than you think to achieve the flat belly you want!
