San Diego Cryolipolisis procedure for stomach fatFor a large number of men and women, the struggle to get a toned, slim abdomen and midsection is at the top of the list of fitness and body aesthetic goals. Even with healthy lifestyle habits like good nutrition and exercise, flank and abdomen weight can be among the most difficult to lose and keep off. With additional factors like age, genetics, and pregnancy, it can feel close to impossible to get a flat, contoured stomach and waist without a little help from a body sculpting professional.

The award-winning team of cosmetic surgeons and body contouring experts at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego offer a wide range of minimally invasive and non-surgical body sculpting and contouring options to help remove stubborn stomach fat and love handles for both men and women.

Why is Abdominal Fat So Difficult to Lose?

For many people, the stomach and flank section is the first place to put on weight, and the last and most difficult to lose. As both men and women can attest, even with a strict diet and rigorous workout routines, losing belly fat can often feel impossible and beyond reach. And carrying around excess fat in the abdomen does more than just ruin physical appearance; it can also increase the risk of developing serious health problems like diabetes, heart disease, and even certain types of cancer.

Diet and exercise are the most important factors in maintaining a healthy weight, but other Oceanside lifestyle factors that may be beyond individual control, such as aging, working a sedentary job, or spending a few hours a day driving to and from work also contribute to weight gain and fat buildup in the midsection.

Minimally Invasive Abdomen and Flank Contouring Procedures

The good news is that there are a number of minimally invasive and non-surgical fat reduction solutions available for both men and women.

Minimally invasive laser body sculpting treatments for abdomen and flank contouring include:

Coolsculpting by ZELTIQ

Cosmetic Laser Dermatology is one of the few exclusive providers of the body sculpting treatment Coolsculpting by ZELTIQ in Del Mar. It is a revolutionary body sculpting procedure that freezes off excess fat cells, which are then reabsorbed and naturally eliminated by the body. It is non-surgical and non-invasive and is designed to target fat cells without trauma or contact with surrounding tissue in the body contouring treatment area.


ThermiLift is a minimally invasive body sculpting treatment that uses the energy of radiofrequency waves to target excessive fat deposits, while also stimulating collagen production and helping to create tighter, younger looking skin. Once fat cells in the abdominal and flank area are melted away with ThermiLift body sculpting treatments the body naturally eliminates them.


Vanquish is a revolutionary, non-invasive fat reduction procedure that can eliminate anywhere from one to three inches from the stomach and waist area after several sessions, all without coming into contact with the body or surrounding tissue. Vanquish body sculpting also uses radiofrequency energy to target and melt fat cells in the midsection. The body contouring treatment is delivered externally, making it one of the least invasive cosmetic laser procedures for fat removal to small targeted areas of the body.
