Along with summer comes swimsuit season, but we don’t want worries about your bikini body to ruin your vacation. So many of us stress about excess fat sticking around our abdominal area but there are so many ways to combat this, and many possibilities when it comes to fat removal procedures. We want to help you make the best choice that fits your needs.

A tummy tuck is perfect for those looking to remove that excess or sagging skin around the stomach area along with leftover stubborn fat. The procedure is one of our body contouring options used to tighten abdominal muscles that have been weakened or separated, restoring a firmer, smoother midsection. With all tummy tucks, only necessary incisions are made to help reduce scarring while still providing beautiful results. There are other options to further reduce scarring, including a mini-tummy tuck in which only the bottom half of your abdomen is addressed or an umbilical float tummy tuck where an incision is not made around your belly button. To learn more about these tummy tuck options, please give us a call!

If removing loose skin isn’t a factor in your decision, liposuction is the best option for fat removal. Liposuction is great for people who need spot treatment, whether around the abdomen, hips, or even thighs to remove stubborn deposits of fat. The removal of these fatty deposits results in the enhancement of your natural figure and allows your skin to adjust back into a slimmer, smoother shape. The basis of the procedure involves localized anesthetic to numb the desired area, followed by insertion of a small tube to aid the removal of fat. Some methods include laser or ultrasound devices to assist in the fat break-up and removal. There are four common techniques for liposuction and we’ve got all the details for you here.

If you’re considering a procedure to address worry areas around your abdomen, we’d love to help determine the right method for you during your consultation. Call us at 404-257-9888 to schedule an appointment!
