Have Belly Fat You Can't Get Rid of? Two Treatment Options That Can Help

Belly fat can be hard to lose, which can get very frustrating. Fortunately, there are treatments that can help you lose this fat so you can look and feel better. Below is information about two treatments so you can decide what would work best for you.


Coolsculpting, also known as cryolipolysis, is one treatment option that does a great job at removing belly fat. It can also be used to remove fat from other areas of your body, such as from the sides, lower back, and thighs. Coolsculpting can help with cellulite that you may have on your body, such as on your legs or stomach area. This is beneficial as cellulite is very hard to get rid of. 

To begin the treatment, the technician places your roll of belly fat onto two panels. The panels then cool until they reach a freezing temperature. During the treatment, the fat cells in your belly die. Over the next few months, the dead fat cells excrete out of your body through your liver. You will see full results in a few months. The technician can give you a timeline of what you should expect. The treatment is not painful, but you will feel some discomfort during the freezing process. Your belly area will be numb temporarily after the procedure due to the freezing and you may swell and have a little redness on the area. Coolsculpting is beneficial because it requires no surgical procedure to remove fat.


For a surgical procedure, liposuction works well to remove belly fat. Make an appointment with a cosmetic surgeon and they will determine if you are a good candidate for this surgery. The doctor uses general anesthesia, which means you sleep through the procedure.  

During the treatment, the doctor makes a small incision on your belly to remove the fat. The doctor uses a canella, which is a small tube, that is attached to a suction. The canella is placed into the incision site, the machine is turned on, and fat is then suctioned out of your belly. How long this takes depends on the amount of fat removed. You will likely be able to go home the same day of surgery. You will have some pain and swelling in the belly area after the treatment. The doctor may wrap your belly with a compression garment to help with this. They will tell you how long you need to wear this garment. 

Once your belly fat is removed eat healthily and exercise regularly to prevent the fat from coming back again.  For more information about coolsculpting or liposuction, contact a cosmetic surgeon.
