How to Fix That Belly Pooch When Sit-Ups Aren’t Enough
Even though bikini season is long gone and the hot weather has disappeared, are you still struggling with the annoying belly fat you’ve been trying to lose since the summer?
Most of the time, the belly pooch consists of a different type of fat that you can’t just lose by doing sit-ups every day. The fat problems in your stomach are much harder to fix compared to other areas of the body.
Normal Fat vs. Stubborn Fat
Your love handles and lower belly fat are quite different from the fat you burn off by doing cardio or dieting. Normal fat like the fat that lives in your arms or legs can be turned into muscle—naturally ridding your body of excess weight.
However, stubborn fat is harder to lose. Creating a honey-comb structure, stubborn fat stores fat that never goes flat, making it difficult to fix your belly pooch. Because this type of tummy fat is harder to lose, it affects your body perception and overall self-esteem.
Diminish Belly Fat
CoolSculpting® can significantly diminish belly fat. Known as a liposuction alternative, CoolSculpting® is a minimally-invasive procedure that freezes and kills your fat cells.
Naturally flushed from your body, the fat cells disappear without going under the knife or using needles. Fortunately, after having the CoolSculpting® procedure, the results are permanent as long as you have a healthy diet and exercise often.
Correcting Saggy Belly Skin
Also, belly wrinkling and sagging can be troublesome for some post-pregnant women or those who have lost a lot of weight in a short period. At AlluraDerm, we offer a non-invasive skin tightening technique called Thermage® CPT.
By tightening up some of the loose skin in your tummy area, Thermage® CPT stimulates your body’s natural production of collagen. Also pain-free and quick, you should see a significant improvement after just one treatment.
