Bye Bye Belly

Liposonix uses high-intensity targeted ultrasound energy to whittle your not-so-lovely love handles.

A bulging belly is a tell-tale sign of ageing.

A bulging belly is a tell-tale sign of aging.

One of the signs of aging for males (and females) is an expanding waistline and potbelly. This is usually inevitable in our sedentary lifestyle where food and entertainment takes precedence over exercise. Even the diligent ones who work out regularly will have to grapple with stubborn mid-section fat that refuses to go away no matter how many burpees you do – that is just the sad fact about aging and a slower metabolic rate.

When I married my husband 10 years, he was a strapping jock who took part in triathlons and had the body to show for it. Like many others, age and lifestyle have gotten the best of him and even though he is fitter than most 44-year-olds with twice a week basketball practice, his six-pack has (sadly) been replaced by a muffin top.

Liposonix to the rescue!

This much-lauded treatment claims to reduce one inch in a one hour treatment. Best of all, it’s non-invasive and has no downtime! Skin is not harmed as fat tissue beneath the skin is permanently destroyed by high-intensity ultrasound energy, and your body will simply remove the destroyed fats naturally – resulting in a defined waistline and flatter tummy.

Treatment process

At Dermacare, my husband had his measurements taken and fat analysis consultation with Dr Dennis Kwan, who explained in detail the technology behind Liposonix as well as its procedure and results. To start the treatment, Dr Kwan marked 15 spots on my husband’s tummy and explained that he would do three rounds in total. Then he placed the head of the device on the first spot and fired up the machine. My husband reported a warm, slightly piercing sensation that was bearable.

After the treatment, two ice rollers were massaged on my husband’s stomach to ease the discomfort. His tummy looked a little red and even though the area felt sensitive, it did not deter my husband from going for his basketball game.

According to Dr Kwan, we can expect results in about six to eight weeks, and I’m looking forward to being reunited with my husband’s “washboard” abs again!
