Stomach Liposuction

Are you tired of never obtaining a flat stomach, no matter how much you work out or diet?

At Clinique Sculpture, we offer a simple solution: liposuction. The stomach is a very difficult area to tone and once fat develops in this area, it tends to stay. Many people are unhappy with the pudge that seems to gather and stick there. Fortunately, liposuction will effectively remove unnecessary fat and dramatically improve your profile!

About Stomach Liposuction

Stomach liposuction is a simple way to improve the contours and proportions of your body. This fat removal technique has been around for decades, allowing plenty of time for the technology to be tested and perfected. In a liposuction procedure, small incisions are made through which a cannula topped with an aspirator is inserted. The cannula is gently moved back-and-forth, dislodging and removing fat cells. Once the abdomen has been contoured and the undesired fat removed, the incisions will be closed.

It is important to note that liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure. Lipo surgery is meant to contour the body and deplete small amounts of subcutaneous fat.

Subcutaneous fat is found just below the skin. It is stored there by the body as a last resort energy source. This fat is very difficult to reduce but with lipo treatment, you can safely contour your midsection.

Liposuction is a revolutionary treatment that will affect your overall fat stores. When an individual hits adulthood, they have a set number of fat cells. These cells will fluctuate in size but never grow or lessen in number. Liposuction will remove a portion of these fat cells, impacting your fat cell number and helping you achieve attractive body contours. Liposuction stomach fat away in just one, simple treatment!
