What Are My Best Options for Reducing Belly Fat and Tightening Skin Without Surgery?January 4, 2019
At the Aesthetic Wellness Center, Dr. Min S. Ahn understands that surgery is not right for everyone. He is pleased to offer a wide range of minimally invasive cosmetic solutions that help patients enhance their physique without the incisions, anesthesia, downtime or risks associated with cosmetic surgical procedures.
Dr. Ahn receives many inquiries from individuals who wish to flatten and tone their abdomen without surgery. Here, he discusses the best non-surgical options for reducing belly fat and tightening loose abdominal skin.
CoolSculpting for Belly Fat
CoolSculpting is a revolutionary in-office treatment that uses cryolipolysis to freeze unwanted fat. During the treatment, the targeted fat bulge is placed between two cooling panels that deliver controlled cooling to the area until the fat cells reach freezing temperature (i.e., crystalize). The slimming effects of CoolSculpting become noticeable over the course of several weeks, once the body eliminates the dead fat cells via natural waste processes. CoolSculpting has been the treatment of choice for millions of people who want to get rid of belly fat that is resistant to weight loss efforts. In addition to the abdomen, CoolSculpting can eliminate surplus fat on the back, upper arms, and inner and outer thighs, and underneath the buttocks, face, chin and knees.
BodyFX Radiofrequency for Loose Skin
If you are bothered by fat and loose or flabby skin on the abdomen, back, flanks, or thighs, Dr. Ahn may recommend BodyFX. BodyFX is the first and only non-invasive body contouring device that is proven to permanently destroy fat while tightening the skin. BodyFX uses radiofrequency energy and deep tissue heating to permanently kill fat tissue and contract the skin. Dr. Ahn and his providers can use BodyFX to tighten the skin on the abdomen or other larger body areas. Treatments usually occur weekly for approximately four to eight weeks.
Depending on your aesthetic concerns and goals, Dr. Ahn and his providers may recommend combining CoolSculpting and BodyFX treatments for the best results. Dr. Ahn and his providers can recommend a specific treatment plan upon meeting with you in person and evaluating your unique case.
