People-particularly women- are most likely to store weight around the tummy area. Whether you have a stubborn patch of fat or a larger problem area, it can sometimes feel impossible to achieve a toned, taut tummy.
Well the good news is that there are a variety of cosmetic procedures that can help make the impossible, possible. The two most effective methods are either a Tummy Tuck or Liposuction. So, what is the difference? And which procedure would be best for you?
Tummy Tucks (Also known as Abdominoplasty) address excess fat and skin around the middle, and can create the appearance of a flatter midriff. Tummy Tucks are particularly popular with women who have had babies and developed a ‘mummy tummy’ after pregnancy, with loose or sagging skin that is hard to tone back up.
Benefits of a Tummy Tuck:
- Elimination of stretch marks
- Creation of a flatter, tones and more contoured abdomen
- Increased self confidence
- Long lasting results
- Removal of excess abdominal skin
- Better posture
Liposuction is one of the five top surgical procedures that was carried out back in 2014. Liposuction removes unwanted fatty deposits in certain areas of the body, leaving the patient with a much more defined shape. There are many parts of our bodies in which this procedure can be carried out on, such as abdomen, hips, legs, breasts and even our chin!
Benefits of a Liposuction:
- Safe removal of Fat
- Reduction of Cellulite
- Improved health
- Changes the way you look and the way others perceive you
- Improved self confidence
If you feel it is time for you to do something about your body insecurities, then the choice is yours! Body confidence is not something we are all blessed with, although if you want this to change then this is the time to take your first step!
