3 Ways to Get Rid of Stomach Fat and Sculpt Your Midsection

Liposuction and other body contouring procedures at our Las Vegas plastic surgery practice can slim and tone your midsection.

You may have tried to slide into a pair of dress pants or summer shorts recently and had to suck in a few extra pounds sitting around your midsection. There are many factors that lead to weight gain in the stomach area, including genetics, stress, aging, hormones, and more. The 3 top procedures for banishing stomach fat with optimal results and minimal downtime are CoolSculpting®, Smartlipo TriPlex™, and liposuction. At my Las Vegas practice, I help patients decide on the treatment path best suited to their needs and cosmetic goals. Here is a closer look at each of the procedures:

1. CoolSculpting®

CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical liposuction alternative that can reduce the fat layer by an average of 20%. Since it requires no needles, incisions, or anesthesia, it’s ideal for patients who wish to avoid the recovery time associated with liposuction. The CoolSculpting procedure typically lasts one to three hours and most patients read, sleep, or relax during their treatment, returning to their jobs or normal activities the same day as the procedure.

2. Smartlipo TriPlex™

Smartlipo TriPlex is the perfect option for someone seeking the benefits of liposuction combined with smoother, firmer skin. It’s the smartest technology yet, using three wavelengths of laser energy to liquefy fat cells, decrease swelling and bruising, and promote the formation of collagen. Past iterations of this technique did not include the innovative, impressive skin tightening potential of today’s system.

3. Liposuction

Traditional liposuction is one of the most effective ways to reduce and sculpt areas of isolated fat, making it ideal for the type of fat that builds up around the abdomen. A tummy tuck may be necessary to remove loose, stretched skin and repair separated abdominal muscles. I often use liposuction to remove areas of fat when I perform tummy tuck surgery.

These are only 3 of a wide range of body contouring options available to clients at our Las Vegas plastic surgery practice. Many women who want to reverse the effects of pregnancy and breastfeeding decide to undergo a mommy makeover, which can combine body contouring procedures with breast enhancement for a comprehensive transformation.

      Hi Janette, The price varies on how many areas you want treated. The more areas you do the less expensive it is. Its best to come in for a consultation to see if you are a good candidate. Smart Lipo starts at $2499.

  • Slee says:

    Hi Doc, if you did a tummy tuck and lower area lipo, do you do it in your office or a surgical center? What does that cost? Is laser lipo appropriate for this?

    • Dr. Arthur Cambeiro says:

      Hi there,

      We usually perform tummy tucks in a surgery center and not in an office setting. It is more efficient to have you asleep for this procedure. I would recommend coming in for consult to see exactly what needs to be done. We can determine if you need Smartlipo TriPlex or a tummy tuck. Pricing will be determined by the procedure needed.
