Brief Answer: Life style change is the need of hour... Detailed Answer: Dear XXXXXXX You reported complaints related to digestive system and fat deposition on neck and stomach. At the outset both these are independent symptoms and may not have any serious clinical significance. Therefore I'll address them individually. 1. The sound that you hear from your abdomen is the sound of peristaltic movement of intestine. It is considered concerning if you have associated abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, abdominal distension and bowel problems. If any of the aforementioned symptom is noted along with the sound, you need to consult a gastroenterologist. Else, you need to modify your diet - high fibre content food, low fat and low spicy diet is essential. Also regular meals and sufficient water intake is necessary. Include exercise to your daily activities. Avoid alcohol or smoking if any. 2. Fat deposition can be controlled with cardioexercises such as brisk walking, jogging, cycling, swimming or thread mill. Effectiveness of medications that are advertised in various media is not known. So I don't prescribe them to my patients. The other effective means to control the fat deposits is through surgical options - liposuction. Hope this helps. Regards

Brief Answer: Liposuction is a permenent fix; but for once... Detailed Answer: Dear XXXXXXX Liposuction is a means to get your body to shape by removing excess fat. It is a one time remedy. However it doesn't guarantee that the fat wouldn't get deposited again. You will to include a life style change. Or you can opt to try a strict diet and exercise and see if you can resolve the fat without liposuction. It can be done with determination and motivation. Hope this helps.

Brief Answer: Liposuction is done by cosmetic surgeon... Detailed Answer: Hi, I do not personally know any cosmetic surgeons. However you can visit multidisciplinary hospital or medical colleges to find good and experienced cosmetic surgeons. The cost of the procedure on an average should be around Rs 50000 to 70000. However the procedure is priced differently and also depend on the amount of fat to be removed. The surgeon will give you the estimate after examining specific areas. Hope this helps. Regards
