What is the best procedure to help me lose a dress size?

Over pregnacy, I gained weight very evenly, and don't really have bulges of fat. But after losing 50 pounds of baby weight, I cannot get down to the dress size I want. I want to fit in to a size smaller pants than now--ONLY ONE SIZE AWAY!!! But for the last 8 years, I haven't been able to di it. Is there any procedure that can help me lose size from love-handles, thighs, and glutes? Just a few inches. Thank you

Hi and thank you for your question

You want something that is reversible and effective. As a procedure, my recommendation would be the intragastric balloon. It is effective, safe and reversible. However, it would be prudent to know a bit more about your body measurements as it is always better to know more details before advising on specific procedures. It is possible you don't need a procedure but rather a more target-oriented diet

Best of luck
