Options for a Tighter, More Toned Tummy

A toned stomach is one of the most popular body goals, but it can be difficult to achieve on your own. Many people are prone to gaining weight and holding on to fat in their abdomen region, and sometimes, it takes a little extra help to get the aesthetic you’re looking for.

Venus Versa

Venus Versa™ is a body-contouring treatment that uses non-invasive technology to break down fat cells in the stubborn fat deposits on your stomach and love handle regions, resulting in a smaller, shapelier waistline. It can be customized to parts of the body and desired results and requires no downtime.


Kybella is an injectable that is best-known for use in treating extra fat around the chin area, but it’s also an option for getting rid of excess fat on the belly. It works by destroying fat cells in a localized area, which are then absorbed by the body. Kybella works more slowly than some other types of treatments, and it may take several sessions over a few months to get the desired results.


SmartLipo is similar to traditional liposuction in that a surgeon will actually suck out the fat through small incisions in the skin. However, SmartLipo adds an extra step before hand, by treating the area with laser energy to liquify the fat cells. This makes them easier to suck out and results in less bleeding, bruising and swelling after treatment. SmartLipo is ideal for the abdomen area because it allows the surgeon to sculpt the body for spot reduction that’s impossible to get with diet and exercise.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck is the most invasive of these options, but it can be the best treatment plan for those who have lost a lot of weight or gone through pregnancy and have excess skin that won’t be tightened up no matter the person’s lifestyle. This procedure is very specific to the patient and involves a lot of planning to ensure a natural-looking result. Downtime and recovery will be longer with this option, but it delivers permanent effective results.

Whether you’ve lost some weight and are dealing with loose skin or just want to get rid of a little extra padding, these treatment options can help. Contact us today to find out more about these procedures and how they can help you reach your tummy goals.
