Stomach Liposuction in Atlanta, GA
Varies TYPE OF PROCEDURE
Minimally Invasive WHERE
As we age, there is a natural reallocation of fat in our bodies, particularly around the midsection or abdominal area. Pregnancy can also add unwanted body fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. This fat is called subcutaneous fat and is located on top of the abdominal wall and under the skin. Many men and women are self conscientious about extra fat in their stomach area. Fortunately, there is a way to eliminate this fat permanently and enhance the contour of your stomach and midsection.
What is Stomach Liposuction?
Stomach liposuction, also called abdominal liposuction, is a procedure that permanently removes fat cells from the abdominal region and re-shapes the abdomen through the removal of subcutaneous fat cells. Often, stomach liposuction is performed in tandem with a tummy tuck to eliminate excess skin resulting from pregnancy or drastic weight loss.
What Are the Benefits of Stomach Liposuction?
Stomach liposuction provides the following benefits to patients:
- Smoother and slimmer abdominal contours;
- Flatter stomach;
- Removal of approximately 70% of the fat cells in your abdomen;
- Permanent results.
Who Is a Candidate for Stomach Liposuction?
Ideal candidates for stomach liposuction are:
- Healthy adults free from medical conditions/illness that would inhibit the healing process;
- Individuals within 30% of their ideal body weight;
- People with firm, elastic skin, and good muscle tone;

- People for whom diet and exercise were unsuccessful.
Stomach Liposuction for Men
Cosmetic surgery is becoming more popular among men and one of the top procedures they are having performed to achieve their ideal physique is liposuction. Stomach liposuction is popular with men because it can focus on a problem area that they have been unsuccessful in addressing through diet and exercise. Stomach liposuction performed on a man can help achieve a more toned and defined abdominal area. The procedure does not change based on gender and the recovery/aftercare is the same.
What Should I Expect from My Stomach Liposuction?
Stomach liposuction, or abdominal liposuction, is one of the most popular liposuction procedures performed on both men and women. There are different stomach liposuction techniques used to slim and reshape the abdominal area. Abdominal liposuction is performed using a hollow tube cannula which is inserted through small incisions into areas with excess fat. The fat is loosened through one of several techniques and suctioned out of the abdomen.
General or local anesthesia can be used depending on the liposuction technique. Patients wear a compression garment for about 4 weeks to alleviate swelling and hold the new contoured shape of the stomach area. Many patients can return to work or light duties a few days after stomach liposuction with a full recovery of approximately 2 – 6 weeks.
How Long Do the Results Last?
The longevity of the procedure is up to the patient. Once the fat cells are removed, the results are permanent. The fat cells will not come back. However, the fat cells that remain can grow larger. A new contoured stomach and mid-section should be maintained through diet and exercise.
