Brief Answer:
What is your weight? What os your height? Can I see a photo of your belly?

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

The various approaches towards losing abdominal fat depends on the amount of fat we are talking about. Physical exercise, healthy diet, avoiding sedentary lifestyle, and reducing caloric intake are always part of the equation. This alone might suffice if you have just a small amount of fat. If it is much, you may need surgical interventions to help accomplish this.

For guidance, I will like to have an image of you showing the belly, your height and weight so as to help me evaluate how much fat we are talking about and which methods would help you achieve that goal.

I hope to hear from you at your earliest convenience and promise to provide more details to help you through this.

Brief Answer:
Thanks for the image!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have reviewed your image. The BMI and the look of your stomach can be managed with dietary measures and exercise. I will suggest that you see a dietitian in your neighborhood for adequate meal planning. Exercise would be another major component. Exercising on most days for at least 30-45minutes would help.

Most important, please note that it's a time consuming process so results won't be showing overnight. Be gentle ad progressive and be ready to spend many months and even years before getting significant change. Only if these fail, then only I will suggest and recommend surgery(Liposuction). It is really not the next best option at this time.

I wish you well and keep me updated with your progress.

Last year I went under the knife for gynaecomastia surgery. I was told by my consultant that the surgery would include liposuction and then a small incision under each areola to remove the circular lumps of excess tissue. After the operation, my dressings were removed to see how the swelling was. I could see that only liposuction had been carried out. I asked why this was and the plastic surgeon told me that if they were to have tried to remove the excess tissue they would have had to have made a large incision. The only reason I wanted this surgery done was because of the size of my nipples, the circumference was not necessarily big, but they were reasonably puffy. Now, they are even worse than they were before the surgery. I was wondering, would my doctor take this in to account and possibly attempt to get me on to another waiting list for more surgery to correct the problem?

Tightening the Tummy Iam 51 years old and weigh 77kgs.Recently I have lost 6 kgs and my weight stabilized at 77 kgs which works out to a BMI of 25 as my height is 5’10”.I maintain regular exercise -aerobics,strength training,abdominal exercises and evening walk of 4 kms.I eat selectively without oil,less Non veg,less sweets,more fruit and water ,steamed vegetables,sprouts,Almonds(4 nos) and 1 egg white.When I go to gym I take whey protein of 30 gms. My problem is with my stomach muscles.Inspite of my exercise and moderate food habits I have a stomach of 36 inches.When I sit down I have to adjust my belt by changing the hole.When I wear underwear I feel very tight in abdominal area.Thats why I stopped wearing underwaear except when I exercise. I consulted a specialist who is into weight loss surgery like gastric band and sleeve who initially suggested to go for liposuction.When I requested for a non surgical solution he offered me a complimentary session on Radio frequency Tripolar machine.He promised that I will loose 2 inches over 6 sittings.For each sitting there should be a gap of 2 weeks.He says the skin also will be tightened apart from fat reduction in the tissues.I have also read that this can be done by Ultrasound Lipolysis and Zerona laser treatments. Please suggest me which is ideal for reducing my stomach sag.
