How to Lose Stubborn Belly Fat

How to Lose Stubborn Belly Fat (Without Surgery or Downtime)

Belly fat is stubborn, annoying and seemingly impossible to get rid of. Everyone wants to lose it but only few seem to succeed. Discover how to lose stubborn belly fat without surgery or down time.

For a long time, the only way to get rid of stubborn belly fat that was resistant to diet and exercise was through surgery. But now, thanks to new technologies, there are a number of non surgical body contouring devices on the market to help slim and shape your body.


CoolSculpting is a revolutionary body contouring procedure that uses cryolipolysis technology to literally freeze away fat cells. During a procedure, the CoolSculpting applicator sucks in the area of fat to be treated, and proceeds to target and freeze fat cells without damaging surrounding tissue.


SculpSure is a non-invasive body contouring system for the reduction of stubborn fat. Each 25 minute procedure can destroy up to 24% of treated fat cells without surgery


TruSculpt is designed for patients who have stubborn areas of bulging fat that cannot be reduced in spite of a healthy diet and a good exercise program. TruSculpt treatments result in a noticeable and natural looking fat reduction in the treated areas. The goal of the treatment is to reduce the bulging fatty tissue in order to improve the contour and shape of the body.


The Body Thermage CPT procedure is a new method to tighten, lift, and smooth the skin of the body. At the Santa Monica Laser and Skin Care Center, we are using the Body Thermage CPT procedure to tighten, lift, and smooth the skin of the abdomen, which is commonly loose after pregnancy and weight loss, and the skin of the thighs. Anyone with mild to moderate laxity of the skin in these areas is a good candidate for the Body Thermage CPT.


Body contouring is powerful yet gentle enough to be used on areas of your body prone to fat storage. Areas you can treat to eliminate excess fat cells include:

  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Upper arms
  • Love handles
  • Chin

The best part is Dr. Anterasian creates a custom treatment plan to address only the areas that leave you unhappy with your appearance. He can treat just one area of stubborn fat or give you a full body makeover that requires no downtime or recovery — the more sculpted you appears as your body eliminates the dead cells.


Imagine sitting back and relaxing while we do all the work. You receive these noninvasive treatments in a comfortable office.

Outside of feeling some cool or heating sensations, you can remove unwanted fat without any pain or the need for anesthesia, and the treatment doesn’t damage your skin. Once the treatment is over, some mild redness is normal, but otherwise there are no side effects to worry about when you go back to work or your usual activities.


Your treatment plan may include a series sessions performed over a number of weeks. Even just one session of body contouring can provide you with dramatic results that last.

And once the belly fat cells die off, they never regenerate. As long as you maintain a healthy diet and get daily physical activity, you can count on retaining your slimmer, slender figure and noticeable curves for good.

It takes some time to see the results of body contouring — you notice a difference within a few weeks, but the most dramatic fat loss is visible after about two to three months, once your body has completely metabolized the dead fat cells. That’s why it’s best to start this body contouring treatment now if you want to show off your sculpted body by spring.

When you’re ready to get started planning your customized treatment plan, schedule a consultation with Dr. Amerian or Dr. Anterasian by calling the office in Santa Monica or use the convenient online booking feature.
