Ok, spring has sprung, the sun is shining and young ladies are now sporting a whole lot more visible skin than in the previous months. So our thoughts quite naturally turn to the moment we may need to reveal the ‘jelly belly’. What can be done reasonably quickly and reasonably effectively to smarten up the jelly belly or the Yummy Mummy Tummy?
Well the main question needs to be which is the bigger problem? The size or the skin?
Yummy mummy tummy’s tend to have several problems including skin laxity, stretch marks and some residual stubborn fat pockets. Depending on the amount of fat present this may be best dealt with by currently the best compromise in liposuction, VASER Liposelection, or VASER Lipoas it is more often referred to.
This has the best balance between cost, downtime, risk and result. It uses and ultrasound probe to liquify the fat first prior to the suction. This liquid fat is much easier to remove allowing the use of thinner tubes and lower vacuum pressure. This reduces the trauma to the tissues and allows for a much quicker recovery process. It also has an extra beneit compared to conventional liposuction in that it does provide a degree of skin tightening to compensate for the lost fat.
Stretch marks are now best dealt with by a combination of Fraxel laser resurfacing and the mechanical dermaroller treatment. Either being pretty good on their own but both being a lot better. We have certainly seen some very good improvements in this otherwise very hard to deal with problem.
Further laxity not already improved by VASER can be treated with Thermage. We have recently upgraded to the new CPT device which is a whole lot less painful. A very significant plus. Thermage uses radio frequency energy to heat the tissues just under the skin to stimulate your own collagen production which over a period of 3 to 6 months refreshes and tightens the skin. Also if fat deposition is not a problem then Thermage alone can provide a lot of tightening to a lax stomach.
What if you are not a yummy mummy but just have some residual ‘puppy fat’ to remove. Well of course the good news is that all of the above can work for you too, depending on your need.
