Stubborn lower belly fat is a frustrating problem that millions of Americans deal with on a daily basis. Lower belly fat likes to stick around whether you want it or not. Even strict diet changes and rigorous exercise may be fruitless against it. But fortunately, there are a couple ways that you can flatten your tummy. The solution is cosmetic surgery, specifically with liposuction and/or tummy tuck. These two plastic surgery procedures are highly effective in removing excess fat from the abdomen and can give you a firm, flat waistline with real, lasting results.

Why Lower Belly Fat is So Hard to Eliminate

Lower belly fat is notoriously hard to lose. You cannot target this area specifically with diet and exercise; these tactics can only result in generalized fat and weight loss from the body as a whole (rather than specifically from the lower belly). The only way to specifically eliminate lower belly fat is with a surgical procedure like liposuction or tummy tuck.

Liposuction for Lower Belly Fat

Liposuction is an effective way to permanently remove excess lower belly fat. This procedure uses a specialized suction device to pull the fat cells from the body. Laser or ultrasound technology may also be used to facilitate the process. Because liposuction is a targeting procedure, it can be customized to meet your fat removal needs. Your procedure can focus exclusively on lower belly fat removal or also on other areas of your body, to help you achieve slimmer body contours.

Tummy Tuck for Lower Belly Fat

A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) may also be performed to address lower belly rolls. This procedure involves surgically removing excess skin and tightening the abdominal muscles to flatten the waistline. In cases where fat removal alone is not enough to flatten the lower belly, tummy tuck surgery is an excellent choice. This procedure can correct problems with excess skin and loose abdominal muscles that are contributing to excess roundness in the lower abdomen.

If you’re struggling to get rid of lower belly fat, liposuction or a tummy tuck could give you the results you’ve been seeking. With the right procedure, you can finally achieve a trimmer lower belly and enjoy lasting results.
