As many will attest, getting rid of gut or belly fat is not a walk in the park. Sure, you can hit the gym and live a healthy lifestyle but there is always that pouch that is protruding.

This is equally true for men and women.

Putting on weight, combined with the the laxity of the belly muscles easily projects the midriff (i.e. abdomen). Also, women who have delivered babies can easily get a softer, protruding post pregnancy stomach.

Laser liposuction is a non-invasive technique which not only melts the fat away but tightens the skin as well. Before going into detail about how Laser liposuction works, let us discuss the causes of belly fat first.
Causes of Belly Fat
Belly fat is a common problem spot for both men and women due to various different reasons and it is known for its stubbornness. When it comes to causes of belly fat, the main culprit is – fat, but there are two kinds of excess fat in the abdomen.
- Subcutaneous fat. This type of fat lies between the skin and the muscle. It is usually squishy, soft and easy to pinch and can be treated by cosmetic procedures.
- Visceral fat. This type of fat is often referred to as a ‘beer belly’. It lies within the abdominal cavity surrounding the internal organs. It generally has a round, firm feel to it because it is stored behind the abdominal wall muscles. Visceral fat is not treatable by any cosmetic procedure.
Trimming belly fat goes hand in hand with tightening loose belly skin. Skin laxity on the belly can be caused by either pregnancy, aging or weight fluctuations. This can range from very mild to severe cases which usually require the excess skin to be removed surgically by Abdominoplasty or a Tummy tuck. On the other hand, if you happen display mild or moderately loose skin there are several treatments which provide skin firming and tightening.
How Laser Liposuction works
Laser liposuction breaks up the fat into a thin fluid, making the evacuation less demanding. Exceptionally small cylinders or cannulas are utilized to suction out the fat from the abdominal skin. Tiny openings in the skin for the procedure translates to really small or undetectable scars. After completing liposuction, the laser is passed again directly under the skin to promote tightening. After Laser Liposuction, the skin is usually smoother and less irregular compared to customary liposuction.
