Turn Your Stomach Into Abs

Turn your stomach into abs.

All winter and spring you imagined yourself poolside, with dark shades, sipping an ice-cold mojito. To that end, you’ve denied yourself sweets and renewed your gym membership. You’ve discovered the perfect golden spray-on tan and you’ve even added highlights to your hair.

You are as vacation ready as you are ever going to be, except for one little, nagging problem--stubborn belly fat. If your frustration has you considering a matronly one-piece swimsuit over a tiny, hip bikini, then take heart, there is a solution. 

If it’s any consolation, you are not alone in your frustration. A lot of women carry unwanted fat in the abdominal region. In fact, it’s the number one complaint both men and women have about their body. There are  two types of abdominal fat, visceral and subcutaneous.

Visceral Fat

Visceral fat lies deep and settles around your organs. This kind of fat is considered a culprit in a whole host of diseases from diabetes to cancer. Luckily, successful dieting and aerobic exercise can reduce this unhealthy fat.

Subcutaneous fat 

Subcutaneous fat holds less danger to your health. This is the superficial fat which lies below the skin, it’s the fat you can grab. This fat is what otherwise fit people see when they look in the mirror. It’s the cause of that stubborn pooch that you find impossible to shake. Subcutaneous fat may be hiding those abs you’ve worked so hard to develop. This is the fat that SmartLipo can suck away.

SmartLipo

SmartLipo is an outpatient treatment, performed under local anesthesia. Compared to old-fashioned liposuction, there is far less trauma to your body. The cannula, the tube used to suck up the fat, is very slender, and the incisions made in the skin for insertion are minute. Because the instrument used is sleeker, finer and more precise, a patient will suffer less bleeding and less bruising than with standard liposuction procedures.

Pinpoint fat for removal.


A skilled doctor can use the high-tech wand to pinpoint the fat for removal. With this targeted approach, the doctor can actually etch the ab section, revealing your six-pack.

Another winning result of the procedure is the tightening effect that the laser has on your skin. The heat factor encourages collagen production, and since collagen gives skin its elasticity, you will see smoother results than you would with traditional liposuction.

Basically, SmartLipo can give you the flat stomach you’ve been wanting. Since the summer is already underway you may wonder if you should put off the procedure until next year. Typically, with SmartLipo, a patient will notice some results immediately, but you should expect continued improvement in the following months.

If you are fit and close to your ideal weight, then you are probably a good candidate for the procedure. If you are still hoping to flaunt a sexier shape this summer or perhaps planning to take a trip to the tropics once autumn sets in, you should make an appointment for a free consultation to find out if SmartLipo is the right procedure for you.
