Baltimore cosmetic surgeons offer several ways to "battle the bulge"

When it comes to the "spare tire" or the "muffin top," there are several ways to slim down these hard to fix areas. Diet and exercise resistant fat is commonly found in the areas of the abdomen and love handes, and Baltimore cosmetic surgery patients are constantly searching for ways to make these areas look better. Here's a list of the common procedures used to slim down the midsection:

1. Liposuction - liposuction and ultrasonic liposuction have been around for many years and they are time-tested, reliable, and safe ways to remove excess fat. The liposuction procedure is typically done as an outpatient procedure under sedation or general anesthesia. The downtime ranges from 3-5 days depending on how much fat is removed. If a lot of fat is removed, you might want to consider an overnight stay at the hospital at which your procedure was performed for safety reasons.

2. Coolsculpting - this newer method of fat removal is really remarkable. Baltimore Coolsculpting patients love this new procedure because there is no downtime, no anesthesia, no incisions, no recovery, and no pain! However, you will only see 200-25% fat reduction per area, so many times several treatments are required. Areas targeted by Coolsculpting include the arms, abdomen, love handles (but nobody loves them,) back, bra areas, and even the inner thighs.

3. Tummy tuck - Baltimore tummy tuck patients rave about getting their figure back, but again this involves a surgery. The results can be amazing as not only is fat removed, but the excess skin of the abdomen is removed as well. The recovery takes about a week, but the results can last years as long as you maintain a healthy diet and good exercise routine afterward.

So, for Baltimore plastic surgery patients thinking about doing something to get rid of the extra fat and/or skin of the abdomen and flanks they have several options. Check with you local Baltimore cosmetic surgery specialist to see which type of fat removal is right for you.
