Best Procedure for Removing Stomach Fat

July 17, 2019

Stomach fat is a common concern for men and women from all walks of life. Unfortunately, it’s more difficult to lose fat in your belly area from traditional diet and exercise because this area contains a higher number of fat cells that don’t respond readily to calorie restriction.

If you’re frustrated by stubborn belly fat that won’t seem to disappear no matter how hard you diet or exercise, there are a number of procedures you should consider. Keep reading to find out what they are.

CoolSculpting can kill fat cells below your skin by freezing them. The treatment involves cooling down your fat cells without damaging the overlying skin. If you opt for CoolSculpting, you can expect targeted fat cells to be naturally removed from your body over a period of about two months after treatment.


Body-Jet liposuction is a great alternative to traditional liposuction and tummy tuck, two common procedures for removing stomach fat. It uses the flow of water to dislodge fat, allowing for a rapid recovery and exceptional results. Water sprayed at the fat layer loosens the fat and separates it from the connective tissues, allowing it to be removed more readily by liposuction.

Tumescent Liposuction

During tumescent liposuction, a diluted local anesthetic is used to inflate the fat layer so that the fat can then be suctioned via tiny incisions in the skin. Compared to other types of liposuction, tumescent liposuction comes with a shorter recovery period, less blood loss, and smoother results.

SmartLipo and SlimLipo

SmartLipo and SlimLipo use laser technology to gently liquefy fat that is then removed by liposuction. These minimally-invasive treatments can slim down your stomach area with minimal downtime. You’ll likely only require one treatment to enjoy optimal results.


ProLipo uses two laser wavelengths to minimize bruising from liposuction and increase the tightening of the treated stomach area. Because the stomach area will be gently numbed with a tumescent local anesthetic prior to treatment, the actual ProLipo laser treatment is completely painless.

After years of putting it off, I finally had Smart Lipo to remove excess fat and bulk in my lower and upper abdominal areas. When I went to the office I was nervous and wasn’t sure anything could be done to make me feel better about my body. Dr. Langdon was very clear about what I could expect during and after the procedure and I felt very comfortable in his care. The office staff were extremely comforting on the day of my procedure and are very friendly and professional. I am glad I decided to go through with the procedure.
