Accumulating excess fat around the midsection can be frustrating. Unfortunately, there’s no way to spot-reduce fat through traditional exercise methods. Therefore, if you’re looking for a fast, transformative solution, a surgical procedure or help from an aesthetic device may be necessary. Here at our Newport Beach office, we offer both. Dr. Bailey can perform liposuction, abdominoplasty, or a body lift to give you the shape you’re looking for. We also offer Emsculpt NEO® – a non-invasive option for shedding stubborn fat, including visceral fat (the fat around your internal organs that surgery cannot treat). Get in touch with our office to learn more today.

How Does Excess Fat Form?

Belly fat, love handles, and submental fat build-up are due to genetics, hormones and poor nutritional habits over a long time. Not getting enough exercise also contributes to stubborn weight gain. Unfortunately, while some of us make a real effort to stick to our diets, we can still retain excess fat. Age and genetics play a major role in how much weight our bodies retain. When your exercise routines don’t do the trick, it may be time to get professional insight.

Options for Removing Excess Fat

Both surgical and non-surgical options are available for addressing stubborn fat. A surgical procedure can be effective if the area of fat is resistant to diet and exercise and you would like to eliminate it quickly and for good. Non-surgical approaches are a great supplement to exercise regimens. They can help you trim areas and get more muscle definition without surgery or downtime. For visceral fat there is no surgical option.

Emsculpt NEO®

Emsculpt NEO® is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that harnesses the powers of radiofrequency (RF) and high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) to tone muscle and melt fat simultaneously. The procedure is non-invasive and takes only 30 minutes. During the treatment, you may feel a heating sensation and muscle contractions. Once the procedure is completed, you can immediately return to your daily routine. In addition to superficial fat removal, it can reduce the visceral fat inside your abdomen around the internal organs.

Liposuction and Abdominoplasty

During the liposuction procedure, a rigid metal tube with hole(s) at the end is passed through the fat layer. The fat is sucked out through the tube from different directions, resulting in a ”swiss cheese” effect on the fat layer. Sometimes ultrasound or laser energy is used with the device. This surgery can be combined with an abdominoplasty to tighten the midsection and give you a flat stomach.
