Wanted: A Flat, Firm Tummy

Don't we all dream of having that perfect bikini belly, a flat, sculpted abdomen you are proud to show Flat tummyoff to the world. And we are willing to try just about anything to get it, especially if it does not involve dieting or exercise. There are pills, drinks, diet plans and " in only 10 minutes a day" equipment all promising that perfect swimsuit tummy. The latest craze, The Tummy Tuck Belt, suggests that 10 minutes twice a day is all it takes to lose inches from your abdomen and get tummy tuck results. It reminds me of the old adage "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is."

How do you move from dream to reality? We have said it in previous posts but it is worth repeating: There is no substitute for a balanced diet and exercise program. Forgot about "spot reducing." Doing 100s of crunches will develop abdominal muscles, but those muscles don't control the fat surrounding them, and can't signal that particular fat to burn off first. Bottom line, you won't see the results of all that abdominal muscle work if there is a layer of fat covering them. Any successful exercise program combines calorie burning cardio work with muscle strengthing. The result is an overall reduction in body fat combined with stronger, more defined muscles - giving you the lean, tight body of your dreams. Need help getting started?

So lets say you have committed to a healthy diet and balanced exercise program, but after several months you still have a layer of fat that is preventing all your hard work from shining through. Laser assisted liposuction, (Smartlipo) may be the answer. Liposuction is not a weight loss solution, but it does allow us to sculpt the body by removing stubborn fat deposits in select areas. Maybe its more then just a bit of residual fat. Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty may be the right choice if loose skin, stretch marks or larger deposits of fat are your concerns.
