Abdominal Liposuction

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am in the early stages of investigating my abdominal liposuction options for reducing my stomach fat. I sent pictures to you as well and then discussions could continue as needed. 

I have attached 3 photos for review. A little background: I am 58, 5’8″, 160 lbs. I work out 5-6 days a week with both weights and cardio but I can not get rid of the so called “stubborn” fat around my mid-section. I am open to different procedures and I have investigated Cool Sculpting with mixed thoughts to that procedure. 

Thanks again and I will wait for reply.

A: You have the classic male distribution of fat in the abdomen and flank/waistline areas. You would not be able to loose that on your own unless you dropped your weight to about 140lbs, which is not a sustainable weight for you. You are an ideal candidate for liposuction as this is the most effective and efficient method of reducing it. Non-invasive methods such as Cool Sculpting, at best, will create only about 1/3 as good of a result over a long protracted time with multiple treatments. Most men are not very tolerant of a slow and incomplete treatment process for fat reduction.
