If one thing’s for sure, it’s that life can be quite unfair. For many of us, after so much exercise and dietary changes, our tummies will still hold onto stubborn excess fat that we just want gone for once and for all. Why does it have to be that way?!
Well, it doesn’t.
If you’re one of those people who have tried and failed at naturally achieving a more “snatched” midsection, our doctors are here to assure you that you still don’t need to go under the knife (or continue breaking a sweat to get seemingly no where).
But how else is it possible? Well, there are several highly effective, minimally invasive tummy tuck or entirely non-surgical tummy tuck alternatives offered by plastic surgeons that can give you the flat and toned tummy of your dreams – because you deserve it!
So, here are four non-surgical procedures that are worth consideration if you’re ready for your abdominal glow-up:
1. EMSculpt®: Simultaneously eliminate fat and tone
Proudly offered by our Burlington doctors at Nabeta, EMSculpt is a non-surgical tummy tuck alternative that we believe truly beats out all of the other tummy tuck options. This is due to the fact that this technology both addresses weight loss concerns AND builds muscle simultaneously for a truly transformative result.
The EMSculpt non-surgical body contouring procedure works by inducing contractions in the abdominal muscles similar to that of an intense workout – but it actually does so on a much, much greater scale: as it can induce up to 20,000 muscle contractions in a single treatment session (something that isn’t possible for any human to achieve on their own!)
So, this revolutionary treatment ultimately results in a noticeable increase in muscle tone and fat reduction in the targeted areas – and most patients agree that recovery is a breeze. Patients will feel some muscle tenderness in the following few days similar to that experienced after a vigorous workout, but they can still resume normal activities and won’t need to take any time off of work.
What’s more – Just like the other alternative tummy tuck treatments we’re about to mention, EMSculpt can treat more areas than just the abdomen – including areas like the thighs, buttocks, arms and calves (and is even considered to be a form of cellulite treatment through its fat eliminating powers).
2. Renuvion®: Banish excess fat and loose skin
Also known as J Plasma or J Plasty, Renuvion is a non-surgical skin tightening treatment ideal for patients with minimal levels of excess fat and loose abdominal skin.
This procedure uses pro helium gas and radiofrequency to produce a plasma (stream of energy) and stimulate profound collagen remodeling. In addition to the abdomen, Renuvion can also be used to address excess fat and loose skin in the arms, breasts, buttocks, thighs, knees and lower face.
3. CoolSculpting®: Freeze fat away for good
CoolSculpting is yet another non-invasive procedure that targets stubborn areas of fat in areas like the abdomen through the freezing and thus destroying of fat cells, technically termed “cryolipolysis”. Like with EMSculpt, this technology is capable of significant fat removal single treatment session, but unfortunately does not provide the same additional muscle building and toning benefits.
This procedure also comes with no downtime as most patients can resume their normal day-to-day activities following treatment.
4. ThermiTight®: Tighten skin for a more toned midsection
Factors such as age, weight loss and pregnancy can all affect skin laxity in the abdomen region, and can contribute to a saggy, loose appearance. Luckily, ThermiTight is a non-invasive treatment skin tightening procedure that helps to tighten loose skin through the use of thermal energy.
Also beneficial for use in areas such as the face and neck, the Thermi device is applied to the abdomen and the tissues are gently heated to the appropriate temperature, followed by compression bandage wrapping. Noticeable results are achieved in just a single treatment session – and like with EMSculpt, the procedure is essentially painless and no downtime is required.
