Have you been putting in the effort at the gym but still don’t have the abs you’re after.   Abdominal contouring may be the answer for you.  Stubborn fat deposits in the tummy area don’t respond readily to diet and exercise, but abdominal contouring can help you achieve the fat loss you desire.    

What is abdominal contouring?

Abdominal contouring is a procedure that removes excess fat from the abdominal area to give the abs a more chiseled appearance.  It makes the abdominals feel firmer and look sleeker.

How is abdominal contouring performed?

Abdominal contouring is a liposuction procedure that is performed using a cannula with an attached suction.  The cannula is inserted through tiny incisions made in the targeted area.  It is then used to remove excess fat and sculpt the abdominal area.   Abdominal contouring takes 1-2 hours.

Am I a Candidate for Abdominal Contouring?

If you are near or at your ideal weight, and have pockets of diet resistant abdominal fat that you would like to eliminate, you may be a good candidate for abdominal contouring

Ideal candidates for abdominal contouring should be in good overall health, and already committed to a healthy lifestyle.  They should not have any existing medical conditions or risk factors that could affect the outcome of surgery, and should also be non-smokers.   

In addition, individuals considering abdominal contouring should also have realistic expectations about what can be achieved with the procedure.
