LPG or Liposuction — The Better Treatment for Tummy Fat Reduction

LPG or Liposuction — The Better Treatment for Tummy Fat Reduction

30/01/2021 Tummy Reduction

Abdominal fat is a common weight problem. These fat deposits at the mid and lower section of the abdomen can often be difficult to treat with diet and exercise alone. Nowadays, there are many options available to help beat obesity — surgical as well as non-surgical procedures. However, deciding the most suitable option can be overwhelming. Being well-informed can help you make a proper decision about your health and assist you in taking the first step in your weight loss journey.

What is LPG treatment?

LPG, also known as lipomassage, is a natural and non-invasive procedure for body contouring. The treatment employs an FDA-approved device to treat fat pockets and restructure the body contours, resulting in smoother and firmer skin. The procedure uses mechanical rollers on the target areas to manipulate and compress fat cells and accelerate lipolysis, or the fat release process. The released fat is used by the muscles as a source of energy. This means, exercising regularly while undergoing the treatment could lead to faster results. LPG treatment is a great option for body shaping as you can choose the areas you want to target.

What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure that works to removes fats from underneath the skin and redefines the body contour. It uses a cannula, which is a thin hollow instrument, to treat localized fat deposits through a small incision. After the procedure, the skin moulds itself to the new contours of the treated areas. The surgery uses general anaesthesia to prevent the patient from feeling any pain during the surgery. However, it is common to experience pain, bruising, soreness, numbness and swelling after the surgery once the anaesthesia wears off.

Which procedure is better for treating belly fat?

LPG treatment has been one of the most popular non-surgical alternatives for many years. It is a procedure that safely and efficiently reduces fat and enhances the body shape. Just like liposuction, LPG also helps in tummy fat reduction and abdominal firming & toning, but without the need for anaesthesia, as the treatment is pain-free. Moreover, it has a shorter recovery time. This means that the skin is not punctured or cut such as in liposuction.

As liposuction is a surgical procedure, it can involve several risks and side effects, such as:

  • Bleeding
  • Infections
  • Blood clotting (can travel into deep veins and other parts of the body, like lungs)
  • Complications from anaesthesia
  • Fluid accumulation (pockets of fluids developing under the skin)
  • Shock (often from lack of fluid during surgery)
  • Fat embolism (when small pieces of fats break away and obstruct the blood flow)
  • Uneven fat removal
  • Burns from instruments
  • Reactions to lidocaine
  • Numbness; changes in skin sensation
  • Damage to nerves, blood vessels, lungs, muscles and abdominal organs
