Stomach Procedures To Get You Summer Ready

From sexy bikinis and belly shirts, to sleeveless dresses and cropped blouses, these outfits will make sure you’re comfortable and smoking hot during the summer season. But are you confident enough to bare your stomach? If you have a little bit of wrinkling or need some serious shaping, Innovations Medical has the right procedure for you and this video will tell you all about it.

Using a thermometer-like scale, Dr. Johnson starts with the most non-invasive procedure for people that needs just a little bit of help. For wrinkling and a little bit of droopiness, Thermage is a great go-to process. It uses radio frequency energy to tighten loose skin without the need for surgery. Some instant tightening will be noticed right after the procedure, but the benefits will continue months after. Because of the heating, three to four times more collagen will be produced and these will mature after three to six months. It will cause further skin tightening or collagen remodeling. There’s also no downtime so you can just go back to work the next day.

If you want to remove an inch or two of stomach fat, Liposonix would be the appropriate procedure. It uses High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound to permanently destroy fat cells. As soon as the fat cells are destroyed, the body will reabsorb it and where it gets routed to the liver to be treated like any fat you would eat. This is greatly beneficial for trimming love handles. It’s also non-invasive and you can go back to work the next day. You cannot, however, do exercise for two to three days after the procedure.

Another way to change the size and shape of your stomach is through the use of SmartLipo. Heat from the laser tightens skin and liquefies fat on contact. It is excellent for contouring the shape of the body you want. Since it is a minimally invasive procedure, you can go back to work after one to two days and you can’t exercise for two weeks.

For those who have lost a lot of weight or even women after pregnancy, skin folds on the lower abdomen can be a problem. This extra skin and droopiness can be resolved through tummy tuck. The procedure can be done under tumescent anesthesia wherein a liposuction-assisted tummy tuck can be done. The tummy tuck or abdominoplasty procedure is also very safe and you can go home the same day. After five to seven days, you can go back to work, but there must not be any lifting for six weeks.
