Shed the Middle Age Spread Forever

Jun 15, 2015

CHOOSE LASER LIPO OR A MINI/FULL TUMMY TUCK AT BELLAVA IN WESTCHESTER

The middle age spread, those excess rolls of fat around the belly region– is a common frustration for millions of men and women in their 30s, 40s and beyond. The reason we get that “spread” is largely due to the fact that as we age, levels of hormones that have maintained our muscle mass tend start to decrease.

At Bellava Medaesthetics & Plastic Surgery Center in Bedford Hills, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. C.S. Kim brings over a decade of artistry and technical precision to weight-reduction and body sculpting procedures including laser liposuciton and the full or mini tummy tuck.

WOMEN AND THE MIDDLE AGE SPREAD:

For some women the weight associated with the middle age spread can appear with pregnancy and stick around until menopause compounds the problem.

And here’s another bit of unfortunate news. Women in the peri-menopause, menopause and post menopause years actually deposit more fat in their abdominal area due to decreases in the hormone estrogen. This change in hormone levels can also cause food cravings, depression, fluid retention and fatigue.

A proper diet and regular exercise is important in battling the middle age spread and for maintaining health in general. However, good habits are not always enough. Fat and loose skin around your midsection can be very stubborn, which is why millions of Americans each year undergo laser liposuction and tummy or mini tummy tuck procedures.

How do you know which procedure is right for you?

TUMMY TUCK VERSUS LASER LIPO

A full or mini tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, involves the removal of skin from the lower abdomen while simultaneously tightening the skin on the upper abdomen. Laser liposuction is a two-part procedure that removes fat deposits through a series of small incisions using a cannula and then sculpts/tightens skin with a laser.

The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for laser lipo or a full/mini tummy tuck is to meet with a highly qualified and trustworthy board certified surgeon such as Dr. C.S. Kim, who customize a treatment just for you. Call 914-864-2140 to schedule a free consultation.
