1. Not all Fat is the same

It is important to distinguish between subcutaneous and visceral fatty acids when talking about stomach liposuction.

Subcutaneous Fat is the jiggly fat that’s located below the skin. It’s generally safe, but it can be unsightly. Visceral fatty tissue is found within the abdominal cavity. Visceral fat can sometimes be seen as the typical beer belly – it is hardy and firm. People who have visceral excess are sometimes called skinny-fat. It can be even worse than subcutaneous fat and for your overall well-being. Because visceral fatty acids are produced by all fat cells, they can interfere with the function of your organs. This can lead, among other things, to increased insulin resistance, blood pressure, high bad cholesterol (LDL) levels, and an increase in risk for heart disease, stroke, and blood pressure.

Stomach Liposuction is limited to subcutaneous fat. Visceral Fat can be safely and efficiently reduced through diet, exercise, and/or weight loss.

Liposuction can be performed even though you don’t have much visceral fatty tissue. But it can limit your options for the best results. The abdomen was also removed along with the waist and hips. We can see that the patient was satisfied with the results. The patient’s stomach still shows some signs of fullness. That’s because the visceral fat is not addressed by liposuction.

Visceral weight is usually 10% of your overall body fat. You should be aware that visceral fat can affect your health in general.

2. General Anesthesia for Stomach Liposuction is Not Necessary

This is true across all body parts but not for the abdomen. Your surgeon will likely use the tumescent approach, which has been the preferred method for safe, effective and painless liposuction since the beginning.

The tumescent approach to stomach liposuction involves filling in the fatty areas between the skin & abdominal cavity using what’s called Tumescent Fluid. It is a mixture saline and Epinephrine with sodium bicarbonate acting as a buffer.

If the surgeon is performing stomach fat reduction using local anesthesia they will add lidocaine to the tumescent fluid. This allows surgeons do lipo without needing to put patients in sleep. Furthermore, it reduces risks and makes the procedure safer uses local anesthesia with the tumescent method.

3. Watch out for Belly Hangings and Loose Skin

Your body produces less collagen as you age. This means your skin won’t bounce as much back. Liposuction is possible at any age. It is important to remember that skin laxity can become a problem with stomach lipo especially if you’re older.

Although you might be aware of the possibility that your skin may become loose after extreme weight loss, it can also happen after liposuction. Smartly Laser-assisted Liposuction can give you better results than traditional liposuction. There are situations where you might need to have a tummy lift.

4, Fat doesn’t move about?

Liposuction should be treated as an investment in your own body. Stomach liposuction can’t prevent your stomach from growing back and won’t hinder you from getting more weight. You will gain weight even if your stomach is larger than normal. Liposuction cannot be used to lose weight and should not replace it.
