Excess stomach fat; more than an aesthetic issue

It is very important for our health to have a flat stomach. Dr. Jose Salvador points out that having obesity in the area increases a person’s cardiovascular risk, as well as the probability of developing diseases such as diabetes mellitus or high blood pressure. In this article, Dr. Salvador looks at one of the interventions that help in this subject.





Tummy tuck is a liposuction technique used to sculpt the body by enhancing body contours. It aims to cause skin adhesion in the most depressed areas of the muscles (the tendon insertions) and to leave a thin layer of fat in the muscle belly areas.

Although it can be performed on any part of the body such as the chest (pectoral area), shoulders, and even legs, it is mainly applied at the abdominal level, sculpting the rectus abdominis muscles, responsible for the “six-pack” or chocolate bar effect.

































Who are the ideal candidates?

Often with exercise, it is impossible to eliminate fat from the abdominal wall or genetically it is very difficult. These patients are ideal candidates if at the same time there is a good muscular base with a well-toned musculature.

It is intended for the treatment of both men and women with moderate fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is not indicated for people with obesity.




Which Liposuction Technique Should Be Used?

High definition Vaser liposuction is the most suitable and specific technique to achieve these results. Its development by incorporating ultrasound for the destruction of fat has made it possible to obtain these results where it was previously hardly possible.




Does it depend if you are a man or a woman?

The results in men and women should be different.

In men, the aim is to mark the rectus abdominis muscles and oblique muscles, achieving the abdominal plate and defining the inguinal ligament well.

In women, on the other hand, only the oblique muscles are targeted, as the rectus abdominis muscles are targeted to give an overly masculinized abdomen.




Can be these exercises achieved by only exercising?

Despite good physical conditions, many athletes still require this treatment. Genetically speaking, the accumulation of fat above the muscles masks the muscles’ abdomen, making them rebel against exercise and diet. Liposuction is the only way to make the muscles show correctly.
