Non-Surgical Tummy Tuck Alternatives –
Tummy tucks, while very effective, can sometimes be cost prohibitive for patients – and can subject the patient to significant downtime. But thanks to remarkable advancements of aesthetic technology, a wide range of treatment options now exist as non-surgical tummy tuck alternatives. And, fortunately for anyone in the Troy, MI area area, we offer the best tummy tuck alternatives at AMAE Plastic Surgery and Med Spa.
If you are interested in an alternative to a tummy tuck that offers fat reduction and smoothing and tightening of the abdominal skin, we offer 3 non-invasive treatments that may be right for you: liposuction, CoolSculpting and amazing new Profound skin tightening. These can be used separately or together for a highly effective non-surgical tummy tuck alternative!
Liposuction as a Non-Surgical Tummy Tuck
Traditional tummy tuck surgery is almost always performed under general anesthetic. Liposuction, on the other hand, is a minimally invasive tummy tuck alternative that only requires local anesthetic. This eliminates the risks that come along with general anesthetic, one of the many benefits of this particular non-surgical tummy tuck alternative.
When performing liposuction, board certified Troy, MI area plastic surgeon Dr. Ali creates incisions that are so small – less than 3 mm in length – they can barely be noticed at all, and will gradually fade with time. Yet another reason to opt for this non-surgical tummy tuck!
The best liposuction candidates are either at or near their ideal, healthy weight, who wish to remove stubborn deposits of fat from specific areas. Additionally, this particular non-surgical tummy tuck treatment works best on patients with both good abdominal muscle tone and good skin elasticity.
CoolSculpting as a Non-Surgical Tummy Tuck
Another excellent non-surgical tummy tuck alternative, CoolSculpting is a noninvasive procedure during which unwanted fat cells are frozen and destroyed, to be eliminated from the body through natural processes.
At our Troy, MI area practice, we tend to recommend CoolSculpting to those who are close to their target weight, but are looking for a non-surgical tummy tuck alternative to get rid of stubborn “problem areas” of fat.
Like liposuction, CoolSculpting also works best for people who have both toned abdominal muscles and good skin elasticity.
Profound Non-Surgical Tummy Tuck
When performed on its own – or in combination with fat loss from liposuction or CoolSculpting – amazing new Profound radiofrequency skin tightening can give patients a firm, toned tummy!
At AMAE Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, we offer this best-in-its-class non-surgical tummy tuck alternative. Thanks to its use of radio-frequency energy, Profound RF Skin Tightening can significantly reduce the appearance of loose, sagging or lax skin with results proven to last.
Good Candidates for Non-Surgical Tummy Tuck
All of these procedures are all ideal for both men and women of almost any age who wish to achieve a flatter abdomen. At AMAE Plastic Surgery and Med Spa in Troy, MI area, we consider a number of factors when evaluating prospective patients for a non-surgical tummy tuck procedure.
For starters, patients should be non-smokers, who are in generally good health. Patients should also be no more than 20lbs above their target weight, and should not require muscle tightening as part of their non-surgical tummy tuck procedure. Furthermore, non-surgical tummy tuck candidates should not require extensive skin to be removed as part of their treatment. Additionally, we remind our patients that if they have experienced separated abdominal muscles (a common occurrence after pregnancy), these procedures will not be capable of correcting this issue.
While Tummy Tuck surgery is the only way to actually remove loose skin and repair lax or torn abdominal muscles, liposuction, Coolsculpting and/or Profound can offer significant fat reduction and skin tightening in the abdominal area.
