Flabby stomach

The skin's natural elasticity can decrease over time, but there are a number of factors that can accelerate this process. Depending on the degree of sagging, there are a range of treatments and procedures available to increase skin firmness, muscle tone and reduce excess fat and skin.

What causes a flabby, hanging stomach?

Having a flabby stomach can lower self-esteem and cause problems in love life, during physical activities and clothing. In several cases the mostly desired flat, tight abdominal area remains unachievable despite a good diet plan and workout routine.

The stomach can become loose and hanging because of a lot of reasons. Significant weight fluctuation destroys the skin quality and ruins its construction completely. Under the abdominal skin surface, muscle- and adipose tissue provide the firmness of the superficial layers. As a result of weight loss the fat cells decrease, but the size of the affected skin part remains the same. If this slimming process takes place in a very short time, then the elastic compartments of the skin cannot adapt properly to the change. The “adipose tissue base” disappears, therefore the upper layers lose their tightness and become saggy and hanging. It’s also a common problem after childbirth, when the stretched out abdominal tissues cannot go back to their original state.

The changes of the connective tissue of the stomach depends on the aging process and also personal features. Genetic factors, poor diet choices, sedentary lifestyle also has a major role in the regenerational mechanism and how this area can preserve and restore its tightness and elasticity. Since our mid-twenties the amount of collagen-, elastin- and hyaluronic acid decreases – these molecules have an important rule in keeping the skin even, firm and soft. Eventually this natural aging process is also responsible for developing loose, saggy skin all over the body.

What can we do about a flabby stomach?

FMS technology – Muscle building

The Schwarzy body-shaping technology by DEKA effectively stimulates the muscle- and adipose tissues of the targeted area in favor of achieving a contoured body-shape and defining muscles. During the half-hour session, the muscles contract more than 20 000 times, which is the equivalent of 20 000 sit-ups.

Morpheus8 microneedle radiofrequency - Skin tightening

A fractional radiofrequency microneedling is an excellent way of tightening the loose, saggy skin parts and also of reducing the unwanted fat pockets. The radiated thermal energy makes the skin contract and tighten up while an intense regenerational process is triggered. New collagen and elastin production makes the skin firmer, tighter and glowier while strengthening the skin texture and improving the appearance of the abdomen. The Morpheus 8 technique is approved by the FDA as a proven remedy for saggy abdominal skin.

Radiofrequency Assisted Liposuction

By radiofrequency assisted liposuction our professionals can precisely and permanently get rid of the excess subcutaneous fat storages. During the treatment the emitted high thermal energy makes the connective tissue contract and as a consequence simultaneously dissolve fat and induce collagen- and elastin production in a single treatment. The technique promotes the regeneration process while making the treated area appear firmer and more toned. While tightening the skin surface and restoring its’ elasticity, it can be applied to multiple, larger body areas like the abdomen, glutes, legs (thighs, knees) and arms and even the under chin. It’s mostly suggested if the main problem is the excess abdominal fat and not only the saggy skin parts.

Abdominoplasty

If the main problem is the excess, loose skin then the most effective solution is plastic surgery. Abdominoplasty – also known as “tummy-tuck” - can be performed in order to remove saggy skin and residual subcutaneous adipose tissue while completely restoring the abdominal muscles. The method also provides an opportunity to reduce the saggy, unwanted skin parts and the excess fat, therefore the belly can regain its flat, tight and toned appearance.
