A Flatter Tummy and Tighter Skin are Always In
A flat stomach is one of the most sought after, yet difficult to achieve, body goals. That is why tummy tucks continue to be an extremely popular procedure to help you achieve that flat, toned look. Summer is a particularly popular time for this procedure as people desire to look and feel their best in a bathing suit. A tummy tuck, known medically as an abdominoplasty, removes loose or sagging skin from the abdominal area. Most patients will usually have some liposuction with a tummy tuck to get rid of small amounts of excess fat they are unable to shed with diet and exercise. Tummy tucks are extremely popular with those who have had excess weight loss or after child birth.

If you are dealing with unattractive and often uncomfortable rolls of excess skin and fat, know that the world-class plastic surgeons of Beverly Hills Physicians have performed this procedure on countless patients with consistently outstanding results. Whatever your situation, you can rest assured that each board-certified plastic surgeon working with Beverly Hills Physicians will exercise all of his or her hard-earned skill and experience to produce the best possible outcome for your tummy tuck. Consultations are free. 249-4040

Lose a Size? We like the "Ultra"Sound of That
What it Is:
Want to permanently get rid of those stubborn love handles? Tired of that muffin top? The Liposonix treatment offers non-surgical, non-invasive fat reduction that is customizable to address specific "problem" areas. Liposonix uses advanced ultrasound technology to permanently destroy unwanted abdominal fat. Backed by over 10 years of research, Liposonix offers noticeable results after just one treatment.

How it Works:
The treatment takes approximately one hour. During this time, high-intensity ultrasound energy is focused on the desired fat zones. Most patients see maximum results in eight to 12 weeks. There is little to no down time with this treatment. Some patients may experience temporary redness, bruising, or slight swelling post procedure, however there is no special postcare required and most people resume work and normal activities the next day.

How Long it Lasts:
Fatty adipose tissue beneath the skin is permanently destroyed and then removed by your body's own natural system. Schedule your appointment for a free consultation to learn more about the "One treatment. One hour. One size smaller" procedure everyone is talking about.

Give Back Fat and More the Deep Freeze
What it Targets:
If you can grab a handful (or two) of fat, CoolSculpting may be perfect for you. While it doesn't replace diet and exercise, CoolSculpting is good for going after areas of stubborn fat like tummy pooch, love handles and back fat.

What it Is:
CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared, breakthrough, non-invasive technology that reshapes the body by literally chilling away areas of stubborn fat. Safe and effective, it gently targets and cools unwanted fat cells in the selected area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat bulges.

How Long it Lasts:
You'll see undeniable results after just one visit. As long as you maintain your weight with normal diet and exercise, results should be long lasting or permanent, since fat cells have been eliminated from the body.

How it Works:
CoolSculpting is completely non-invasive. No needles, injections, or incisions. It uses an applicator cup (Multiple sizes are available.) that enables vacuum pressure to draw tissue between cooling panels. Appointments usually last one to two hours and you can typically resume normal activities afterwards.

A Hair-free Stomach You'll Want to Show Off
Whether it's bikini season, getting back to water aerobics or relaxing poolside, giving your tummy a waxing will make you feel good and leave you with a body you'll want to show off all summer long. It's even something that expectant mommies are doing that makes them feel pampered and smooth before their big day. Men have "tummy trails" and so do most women, which can be eliminated during a waxing session. Waxing - especially at the hands of an expert like Heather Nelson - is the preferred method of hair removal because it makes regrowth lighter by removing the root of the hairs. It's an affordable luxury for an all-over good feeling.
