The problem of every other person on the planet is the bulging belly fat that gives your body a disproportionate look. It is an issue found in both genders. As you reach your 40s and begin to age, fats begin to accumulate on your abdominal area. Before, we begin exploring let’s see what causes this fat accumulation and what is the S-curved body that are in demand among women.
What is belly fat?
As mentioned above, the accumulation of fat pockets around your abdomen or the waist area is called belly fat.
- What are the common causes of belly fat?
There is a number of reasons that can cause fat collection on your belly. The most common are:
- An inappropriate diet such as sugary foods, drinks like soda and boxed fruit juices, low-protein and high-carb diet
- Excess consumption of alcohol
- Not doing enough exercise
- Stress impacts the metabolism of the body
- Post-pregnancy tummy
What is the S-Curve body?
This is basically a sculpting treatment with the goal to improve the entire figure including the stomach, hips, and side torso. Some women desire their body to have a sensual and aesthetic curvature; this is what is called an S-curve body.
How to lose belly fat the non-surgical way?
After you have exhausted all the easy ways to get rid of belly fat through exercise, diet and some home remedies, don’t jump directly on surgical options. There are numerous non-surgical procedures that are minimally invasive with little to no downtime and marvelous results.
Let’s explore some of the best non-surgical options to get rid of belly fat.
- Cryolipolysis or Cool sculpting
This is a non-surgical and non-invasive fat reduction procedure. This treatment uses cold temperatures to destroy the targeted fat cells of the belly. The low freezing temperatures kill the fat cells. The destroyed cells are then flushed out of your body via the lymphatic system.
The results of cool sculpting are visible within 1 month with final results after 2-3 months.
The procedure takes 30-60 minutes per one treatment area and almost no downtime.
The common side effects of this procedure are mild temporary swelling, numbness, and redness.
- Laser Lipolysis
This is the opposite procedure of Cool Sculpting where laser energy is used to heat and destroy the fat cells. The laser beam of a specific wavelength is delivered through the skin which targets the fat cells causing them to break. To prevent any damage to the skin, a constant cooling mechanism is used.
Initial results are visible in nearly 6 weeks with final results after 12 weeks.
The procedure takes 25 minutes per area.
- Radiofrequency Lipolysis
These procedures involve the use of ultrasound therapy to target the abdominal fat. UltraShape and BLT Vanquish ME are treatments that involve the use of ultrasound. There is no discomfort involved as the procedure is very gentle on the skin.
The results appear within 6-12 weeks.
The typical procedure involves 1-3 treatments with a gap of 2 weeks.
With age, our skin loses collagen and it becomes saggy. Thermage is basically a skin tightening treatment that revives the production of collagen with help of radiofrequency technology. Actresses like Gwyneth Paltrow have had this procedure. Thermage is also used to tighten the saggy skin around the belly area.
Results start appearing after 2-6 months. A single treatment may give visible results which can last for years.
- Red Light Therapy
This is comparatively a newer technology that involves use of a specialized lamp. This lamp sends light with certain wavelengths through the skin onto the targeted fat cells. This creates small openings and the cells release some of their stuff. This causes the cells to shrink causing the body to lose belly fat.
The results of this procedure last for as long as your body doesn’t gain any weight.
It is a quick procedure and takes about 30 minutes per session.
Which non-surgical procedure helps you get S curve?
The one most famously and commonly used non-surgical procedure for getting the desired S curve is the BBL (Ultherapy body contouring). Celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian have achieved the S-curved body thanks to this procedure. This process involves the technologies of therapy, coolsculpting to burn the fat pockets, and simultaneously toning up the gluteal muscles. The final result is a well-defined and hourglass figure that women desire.
Why go for the surgical option to get rid of belly fat and get the s-curve, which is expensive and painful too. The medical advancements have a number of FDA-approved non-surgical options that are not only light on the pocket but are minimally invasive with long-lasting results.
