Got Belly Fat? 2 Ways You Can Shrink It Down

Belly fat seems to be the hardest to get rid of on your body, but you can do it with determination and discipline. Weight in the middle also increases your chances of developing high blood pressure, stroke, heart disease, and diabetes. Below are some helpful tips to help you get back in shape again.


Exercise is good for your heart, as well as your body. You should learn the right types of exercises to do for your belly fat, as different exercises target different areas of your body.  The best way to do this is to visit a gym. The exercise instructors can tell you the best exercises to do. Even if you cannot afford a gym membership, go at least one time to learn these exercises.

One type they may teach you is the belly flank. This is done by lying on your right side, putting your right elbow beneath your shoulder, and stacking your legs together.

Put your left hand on your left hip, tighten up your abdominal muscles, and lift yourself up. Hold this position for as long as you can, and then repeat. You get the added benefit of strengthening your arm also.  Repeat this exercise for the left side of your body.


If you have tried eating right and exercising and still have belly fat, you may want to consider visiting a cosmetic surgeon for liposuction.

During this procedure, the surgeon first puts anesthesia on the area, and then inserts a small hollow tube under your skin. The surgeon turns on a vacuum that is connected to the tube to suck out the fat. Do not be alarmed, as this vacuum may make a loud sound.

The fat that is removed is permanent, but this does not mean that new fat cells do not grow. For this reason, it is important that you exercise regularly, as well as eat a healthy diet to maintain your flat belly.

Your surgeon will tell you how quickly you can get back to your normal activities. Usually this will be a few days. It is important that you follow his or her instructions to ensure everything goes smoothly for you.

The surgeon may be able to get you in touch with a dietitian, who can help you come up with a diet plan to help you maintain your weight. You may also have to do some exercises to tighten up your skin after the fat is removed. To learn more, contact a company like Plastic Surgery Innovation PC with any questions you have.
