What’s a Good Tummy Tuck Alternative?

If you are someone who is dealing with a muffin top following pregnancy and childbirth or after experiencing dramatic weight loss, you may have heard of a variety of procedures that can address excessive tissues over the abdomen. One of the most popular options and the one most frequently spoken of is the tummy tuck, which is designed to get rid of extra skin and tissues over the area to create a tightened look. However, there are several downsides to the tummy tuck. In addition, the tummy tuck cannot remove extra fat from the area, which is often a concurrent concern. It is frequently done under general anesthesia and is considered highly invasive, which can lead to a variety of risks and complications. Therefore, many individuals are looking for a good tummy tuck alternative.

At Nowak Aesthetics, we understand your concerns. You want a tightened and toned abdominal area along with reshaped hips that will look good in your clothes without leading to a muffin top. You want to look slimmer, more shapely and more youthful with firm, tight skin and a flat belly. That is why we offer you a great tummy tuck alternative. With ThermaLipo, we combine a wonderful fat removal process with Thermage, a skin tightening treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to change the cells deep beneath the skin.

Your ThermaLipo procedure will begin with tumescent liposuction, a newer version of liposuction that yields far better results with fewer complications than classic liposuction does. The fat cells are removed through a catheter that vibrates.

After the tumescent liposuction is complete, the surrounding abdominal skin will be tightened with Thermage. The radiofrequency energy heats the cells deep beneath the surface of the skin, causing them to tighten. Thermage is a perfectly comfortable treatment that improves the amount of collagen in the area, further improving skin tone.

You will only be required to rest for a few days before you will be able to head back to work. You may need to follow some specific requirements, such as wearing a pressure garment for a time to help your skin cells contract sufficiently. However, for many individuals, Thermalipo is a wonderful alternative to the more intensive and often complicated tummy tuck procedure.
