About Stomach Liposuction
Stomach Liposuction is a highly effective, FDA-approved method of eliminating unwanted stomach fat.
The minimally-invasive surgical procedure will remove stubborn abdominal fat, slim down the tummy, and improve the overall stomach contour.
Dr. Silvia Rotemberg performs stomach liposuction using today’s most advanced techniques. The surgery is performed at an outpatient surgery center using a cannula, tiny incisions, and tumescent fluid. Tumescent fluid is a combination of saline, epinephrine, and lidocaine. The tumescent fluid makes the fat cells swell, which makes them easier to dislodge gently and remove. The lidocaine is an anesthetic, which numbs the treatment area.
Dr. Rotemberg has helped thousands of men and women replace their abdominal “pooch” with a flat, attractive stomach.
Patients also have the option of improving their fat removal procedure with liposuction technologies like ultrasound or laser energy. If you have questions about the liposuction method that is right for you, Dr. Rotemberg will be happy to assist you during a private consultation.
Stomach liposuction is an excellent way to get rid of frustrating tummy bulge, muffin top, or love handles. To learn more about how stomach liposuction will achieve your ideal body contour for the long-term, schedule a private consultation at Rotemberg Plastic Surgery today!
About Fat & Liposuction
There are two types of fat on the body: subcutaneous and visceral. Subcutaneous fat cells are directly under the skin and can develop almost anywhere on the body. Subcutaneous fat is often visible, creating a soft or pudgy appearance. Subcutaneous fat can also be frustratingly resistant to diet and exercise.
The other type of fat on the body is visceral fat. Visceral fat forms more profound within the body, around the internal organs. An excess of visceral fat raises a person’s risk of diseases like diabetes and heart disease. Visceral fat in the stomach can create a firm, bulging abdomen. This firm stomach is often known as a “beer belly.” Unfortunately, liposuction cannot address visceral fat. Visceral fat can change through diet and exercise.
If you have subcutaneous fat on your stomach, diet and exercise may not be enough to achieve your ideal, flat stomach. Stomach liposuction is a safe, effective way to eliminate your subcutaneous tummy fat for good!
You deserve to love the way you look. Now you can finally achieve the body you want, thanks to stomach liposuction. Benefits of stomach liposuction include:
- Eliminates stomach jiggle, muffin top, and love handles
- Gets rid of your stubborn fat stores for the long-term
- Reveals your toned, healthy body underneath
- Reduced recovery time

Stomach Liposuction & Tummy Tuck
Stomach liposuction will eliminate unwanted fat from the abdomen. However, the procedure is not designed to address skin laxity and will achieve only moderate skin tightening. Tummy tuck and body lift procedures are frequently combined with stomach liposuction to tighten, lift, and smooth the body contours.
Patients who have loose, sagging skin on the abdomen are good candidates for a Tummy Tuck. Weight loss and pregnancy commonly stretch out the surface of the stomach, resulting in a hanging or wrinkled abdominal appearance.
The tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that addresses excess abdominal skin to restore a tight, flattering stomach. A tummy tuck incision is low along the pelvis, which can easily be hidden with clothing. The procedure will tighten the skin and remove loose, excess tissue. A tummy tuck will also repair any damaged abdominals to create a flat, supported stomach.
Stomach liposuction is a vital part of a tummy tuck procedure. It allows Dr. Rotemberg to eliminate stubborn subcutaneous fat before the abdominal skin is removed and tightened. These steps will be customized to achieve the preferred abdominal contours.
