Liposuction is an ideal treatment for isolated pockets of stubborn fat, but when you're looking at belly fat, there are many potential factors that need to be taken into consideration when looking for the ideal treatment.
First, it's important to know that when you have a belly that protrudes, it's not always fat. It is often made up of additional skin and slack abdominal muscles, especially if you have been carrying a lot of belly fat for a while or have a sagging belly after pregnancy.
Liposuction is a good treatment if you do not have excess skin, if your skin is in good condition and likely to retract after treatment.
However, if you have slack abdominal muscles, liposuction will not give you the results you desire. Instead, the only way to get quality results is with a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) that can remove excess skin and tighten your abdominal muscles.
