You might look into body contouring treatments if you don't like the shape of your body after pregnancy or weight loss. You might have excess skin or pockets of fat in your abdominal area that give you an unflattering shape even though you are at your ideal weight. A cosmetic doctor can help you choose the right treatment based on your condition. Body contouring surgery may be the best option, but sometimes spa treatments can help. Here are a few options for improving the appearance of your abdomen.
Fat-Removal Surgery And Treatments
Liposuction is a popular method for removing small amounts of fat because it is effective and you get results fast. However, this treatment is a surgical procedure, so you'll have a recovery period and swelling afterward that needs to resolve before your new sculpted abdomen can be appreciated.
If you need fat added elsewhere, such as in your breasts, liposuction is a good option since the doctor can save the fat and use it to sculpt other areas of your body. With excess fat removed, your stomach area will be flatter and have unsightly lumps removed.
If you want to avoid surgery if possible, your doctor might recommend a spa treatment that delivers chilled air through your skin to destroy fat cells. This body contouring device uses temperatures that don't harm body tissues but deal with your fat cells instead. No incisions are required. Fat cells are destroyed, and your body removes them naturally over time, so results may take weeks or months to obtain.
Skin-Tightening Surgery And Treatments
If your skin is loose before or after liposuction, you may need to have it tightened to give you a flat abdomen. If you've lost a lot of weight, your skin may be so loose that your stomach looks saggy. You may not achieve the tight, flat look you want until the skin is removed. You might need a tummy tuck or mini tummy tuck to pull the skin tight.
There are a few spa treatments available for skin tightening and body contouring. This might be microneedling, radiofrequency, ultrasound, or laser treatments. They all work by delivering controlled damage to your skin that causes your body to produce collagen for repairs. As your body makes more elastin and collagen, your skin gradually tightens over time.
Spa Treatment To Tighten Muscles
Some med spas can provide treatment with a device that causes your abdominal area to have many muscle contractions while you wear it. The purpose of this device is to sculpt the abdominal area. You can get abs by working out at a gym too, but having these sculpting treatments can provide similar results while you rest on a table and wear the device. This treatment could be a nice complement to other body contouring treatments when you want a tight abdomen.
Flawless skin takes a lot of concentrated effort. You cannot simply wash your face and expect it to look like perfect peach-colored porcelain. If you invest the right amount of time and money into your skin, it will reward you for your efforts. In the meantime, you should seek out professional skincare support at spas and salons. Here, they have mud masks and other products that can draw out impurities and put a fresh balance into your skin. Routine treatments for your specific skin type sets up your expectations for what it takes to give you flawless skin. Following this routine religiously will help produce the results you are looking for.
