Losing stubborn belly fat can be a challenging task. For some individuals, hitting the gym and following a strict diet suffices, but for others, a sculpted stomach remains but a dream.

So why doesn’t all this hard work always yield the desired results? Below, Dr. Rudy Coscia explains the underlying factors that stand in the way of success; he also discusses what to do to address the issue of belly fat.

Why Some People Can’t Lose Belly Fat Despite Diet and Exercise

Several factors may contribute to difficulty losing belly fat. One common reason is genetics. Some people may have a predisposition to storing fat in the abdominal region, and thereby making any lifestyle modifications proves futile.

Another reason is hormonal imbalances, such as elevated cortisol levels due to chronic stress. Additionally, age-related changes in metabolism and muscle mass can make it harder to lose belly fat.

Treatments for a Flat Belly

If you aren’t happy with your workout and diet plans, you can try surgical treatments to get a flat belly. One of the most popular treatments is liposuction, which can remove excess fat deposits from various targeted areas of the body, including the abdomen.

During liposuction, Dr. Coscia uses a thin tube called a cannula to suction out fat cells for a more contoured appearance. Liposuction can provide results far more noticeable than what can be achieved through lifestyle modifications. However, while this popular procedure can effectively reduce localized fat deposits, it is not a weight loss solution and is not appropriate for anyone who struggles to maintain a healthy weight.

Another surgical option for achieving a flat belly is abdominoplasty, commonly known as tummy tuck. This procedure is ideal if you have excess fat and skin and weakened abdominal muscles resulting from significant weight fluctuations, pregnancy, or aging. Dr. Coscia can surgically remove excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen and tighten the muscles to create a firmer, flatter abdominal shape.

In addition to liposuction and abdominoplasty, there are minimally invasive procedures available for non-surgical fat reduction. CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved fat removal procedure that harnesses the power of cooling technology to freeze away belly fat.
