Stubborn Belly Fat After Pregnancy? 2 Tips To Slim Down

If you had a baby and have stubborn belly fat left behind, it can be difficult to get rid of this. Fortunately, there are things you can do to help you slim down, two of which are listed below. 

Smart Liposuction

Smart liposuction is one option to remove fat from your belly. This type of liposuction uses laser energy to sculpt your abdominal area. You will also see this referred to as laser lipolysis. The doctor uses a laser to heat the fat cells in your abdomen. This causes the cells to turn to liquid. A suction is then used to remove the liquid from your abdomen.

Once the treatment is finished your abdomen will be much slimmer and it will stay this way unless you gain weight in the future. If you find it difficult to maintain your current weight, see a nutritionist to help you choose the right foods to eat, as well as exercise at a gym, at home, etc. 

If you gain a lot of weight in the future, you will have to have the smart liposuction treatment done again to remove the fat cells from your abdomen. If you do not gain weight, you will never have to have the treatment done again. After the procedure you will be asked to rest for a few days and refrain from any type of exercise. You can generally return to work within a few days after the treatment. Your doctor can give you much more information about this. 


Coolsculpting is a non-invasive treatment to remove belly fat and you have no downtime. This treatment is also known as fat freezing. During the treatment the doctor uses a device that emits cooling to the targeted areas. The device is moved over your skin, and it administers suctions and uses the cooling technology. How long this takes will depend how much belly fat you have. You also may have to have more than one treatment. 

The frozen fat cells will not grow back again after this treatment. You can still gain weight and new fat cells will grow. If this happens you will have to have the treatment done a second time. If you do not gain weight, however, you will not have to worry about returning.  You generally start to see results in a couple of weeks after the treatment. 

Both options will work well for you to help get rid of that stubborn belly fat.
