Is there a non-surgical alternative to a tummy tuck?

The tummy can be a really difficult area to tone. Eating healthy and getting regular exercise oftenhas little effect on the excess fat and skin. That’s why the area is usually toned with a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty. But is there a non-surgicalalternative to a tummy tuck for those who really don’t want to go under the knife.

Non-surgical tummy tuck
There are several laser, ultrasound, and radiofrequency technologies that have been able to successfully tone and tighten the tummy without surgery. These alternatives work best on patients who are near their ideal weight, but have an extra inch on the tummy they need to lose.

At Gallaher Plastic Surgery & Spa, MD we use the cutting-edge Liposonix to reduce abdominal fat, and trim the waistline. Liposonix is an ultrasound-based technology.

How it works
The focused high-intensity ultrasound energy is delivered deep into the fat layer. It selectively targets the fat cells, so the surrounding tissue is not harmed. The heat destroys the cells, and the fat is then processed and passed from the body. The fat is therefore permanently removed.

Is it painful?
Patients will experience some level of discomfort during treatment. They usually feel tingling, cold, burning, or prickling sensations. However, most patients are able to tolerate the treatment very well.

With Liposonix there are none of the risks or post-treatment downtime associated with liposuction. So if you are ready to trim stubborn fat from your waistline, Liposonix may be the right treatment for you.
