Man pinching his belly fatIf it seems like you’re seeing results in your face, arms, and chest, but your belly isn’t responding to your fat loss routine, you aren’t alone. Many men struggle to flatten their midsection through diet and exercise. That’s where liposuction can be very helpful.

Liposuction is a safe and effective way for men to eliminate unwanted fat from virtually any area of their bodies. Plus, it can reduce belly fat faster and better than any alternative available today. 

Why Is It So Hard To Lose Stomach Fat?

There are many reasons why it’s so hard to get rid of the fat around your waist, including: 

  • Stress: Our bodies respond to stress by releasing a hormone known as cortisol. A consistently elevated level of cortisol is believed to encourage fat storage. It is also thought to increase your appetite and contribute to cravings for unhealthy foods such as sugar. However, more studies are needed to determine the exact link to weight gain.
  • Genetics: There is a chance that you are genetically prone to carry extra weight in your abdominal area. If your father held most of his weight around his belly, then your body is more likely to do the same. New research even suggests that the composition of the microorganisms in your body that are passed down from your parents can play a role.
  • Age: Your body shape will change as you grow older. This fact is related to lean tissue loss, muscle atrophy, and other factors. Men typically gain weight until approximately age 55 and then start to lose weight. Doctors suspect this is related to a gradual and age-related decrease in the male sex hormone called testosterone. 

Benefits of Treating Belly Fat with Liposuction

There are many advantages of turning to liposuction when diet and exercise aren’t enough. For example, it’s a one-and-done procedure that rarely needs to be repeated. Meanwhile, many non-surgical treatments require several sessions to achieve the desired level of fat reduction. 

Liposuction also offers a visible improvement in the shape of the treatment area. It can permanently remove up to several pounds of belly fat located below the skin and above the abdominal muscles. Finally, liposuction offers long-lasting results if you maintain your weight.
