How to lose abdominal fat in Portland without surgery

Abdominal fat can be stubborn. Even with regular diet and exercise, patients are often concerned with their stomach and love handles. Fat has a tendency to stay in these areas more than others, regardless of how hard patients work to lose it via traditional methods of targeted exercise. Patients in Portland often ask the team of Thrive how to lose abdominal fat without surgery. Dr. Maddox and his team will often suggest non-invasive treatments such as Vanquish.

Vanquish is a safe, FDA cleared device that can remove unwanted fat and contour the body with the use of radio frequency energy.

The device uses a series of panels that do not touch the body, though provide heat to the skin and underlying fat to destroy fat cells in a comfortable manner. Many patients who have undergone Vanquish treatments describe the feeling as the warmth of a heating pad. This treatment can banish fat in as few as four appointments at our practice. Each appointment lasts approximately 30 minutes and allows patients to return to their lifestyle without any interruption or recovery time necessary.

The best candidates for this method of fat removal are those who live active, healthy lifestyles. Patients who are pregnant, nursing, or who metal implants in their body are not appropriate candidates. It is important that patients understand Vanquish is not a weight loss tool, but rather a method used to contour areas of stubborn fat deposits not responding to traditional diet and exercise. Patients can use Vanquish as an alternative to surgery, which comes with many risks.

Dr. Maddox and the team of Thrive enjoy using this state-of-the-art technology to provide patients with an alternative way to contour the body and lose abdominal fat without dreaded surgical procedures. There are no side effects or risks such as those that accompany liposuction or tummy tucks, and patients can have their treatment done without the recovery and downtime necessary for surgery.

If you live in the Portland area and you have been wondering how to lose abdominal fat without surgical treatment, contact Dr. Maddox today to learn more about Vanquish and how it can dramatically change the way you look!
