How Vancouver area patients can lose belly fat

Woman Pinching Belly Fat

Patients in the Vancouver area who have been struggling with unwanted belly fat often try everything to lose it, including excessive dieting and exercising. However, the abdomen is one area of the body where it can be extremely difficult to eliminate unwanted fat. Fat deposits in this area often do not respond well to diet and exercise, and patients may feel as though their only option for losing belly fat is surgical intervention with a tummy tuck or liposuction. Thankfully, with improvements in technology, patients can now lose belly fat with a procedure known as Vanquish.

Vanquish is a non-invasive option for patients who want to target fat deposits to help contour their body. Vanquish uses radio frequency energy to heat the deep layers of the skin and break down the fat so that the body can naturally flush it out and gradually reduce the amount of fat cells in the targeted areas. Unlike an alternative treatment known as Exilis, Vanquish uses heating panels instead of a hand-held device. Patients rest on the treatment table while the panels are suspended above the body and they make no contact with the skin. With Vanquish, patients can address larger areas such as the entire midsection in just one treatment.

Patients will not see immediate results, as the process takes time. Patients may also want to schedule several session to achieve optimal fat reduction. Dr. Adam Maddox will also advise patients to maintain their regular exercise routine and eat a healthy diet in order to keep the results they obtain from Vanquish treatment.

Vanquish is not a weight loss tool. Instead, it is best for body sculpting and contouring, and for addressing specific areas of fat deposits not responsive to diet and exercise. Patients must be appropriate candidates for treatment, and therefore, are encouraged to contact Dr. Adam Maddox of Thrive to book a consultation appointment and examination before choosing Vanquish. Our team can educate patients on what to expect before, during, and after their treatment and help them invest in their appearance and self-confidence.
