Well, it appears as though you are really fit. You have minimal excess fat in your abdominal skin. I think SmartLipo would be a reasonable option for you, offering very little downtime as you desire. Consult a qualified surgeon regarding best approach. Sincerely, Dr. Windell Boutte, MD
Thanks for your
question and if you are concerned about losing fat, than laser liposuction is a
good bet for you. CoolSculpting does not work well where there are not areas of
bulges (if you can’t grab it, you can’t treat it). Other things to consider
would be the latest of the ultrasound fat removal devices, known as UltraShape.
This is a non-invasive pain free ultrasound device, now FDA approved and has
shown in clinical trials to remove fat in the areas that you are concerned
Laser liposuction can help remove areas of excessive fat. Cool sculpting does not actually remove any fat cells. Liposuction can be done in one surgery, but cool sculpting requires several treatments. I would suggest meeting with a board certified plastic surgeon and discuss your options.
Thank you for posting a photo of the areas of
concern. You would be a good candidate for Liposonix, a non-invasive laser to
help destroy fat deposits. Liposonix will eliminate problem areas around the
hips, waist, and abdomen. Consult with your doctor to find out if you are a
good candidate for Liposonix.
Based on your information provided and photos you should be able to get a home run result with Smartlipo or Ultrasonic Liposuction. Downtime and bruising, pain, discomfort should be minimal with either procedure. Make sure your plastic surgeon has a lot of experience in liposuction to get the results you are looking for. Good luck, Dean Vistnes.
Coolsculpting is non-invasive and can improve the area about 20% or so. Liposuction using almost any technique can remove the requested areas successfully for many patients.
I liposuction and narrow waists every day. It is always the surgeon and not the machine.
Find a plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of liposuction procedures,
has great reviews, and has great before and after pictures.
