As we reach middle age, our metabolism slows down, and it becomes a lot harder to burn the extra calories that we consume during the day. Middle-aged men store their excess body fat in their abdomen. Men who once had a muscular physique, but because of age, slow metabolism, unhealthy diet and an inactive lifestyle, are now a little soft and round in the abdomen are affectionately referred to as “Dad Bods.”
Generally, men with dad bods are in good shape overall. But even if they continue to exercise and switch to a healthy diet, it will be harder for them to lose all the excess fat. Stubborn fat that gets stored in the abdomen is a lot harder to lose with just diet and exercise, as compared to fat in other parts of the body.
To lose the dad bod and get those 6-pack abs, it’s not uncommon for middle-aged dads to need a little bit of help. Thanks to the technological advancements and the introduction of non-invasive body sculpting services, now, losing a dad bod is as easy as showing up to your appointment and laying down for a few sessions while services are performed. Men can regain their muscular physique and boost their confidence just by showing up and keeping it consistent.
Body Contouring with Radiofrequency
Radiofrequency treatment is completely non-invasive and known to be the best body contouring treatment to remove belly fat and to sculpt the abdomen. During radiofrequency treatment, your technician will use a hand-held applicator and move it around on your abs and stomach. The radiofrequency (RF) waves and heat that are emitted from this device penetrate deep into your skin and target the stubborn layer of fat cells. The combined action of RF waves and heat breaks up the cell membranes and melts the fat cells which are then transported to the body’s lymphatic system for excretion.
As the RF waves pass through your skin cells to reach the fat cells, the surrounding skin cells get damaged. To repair these skin cells, our body produces collagen, which is an essential protein that is needed to develop and grow tendons, skin, nails and hair. The elasticity of the collagen makes our skin tighter and firmer, giving it a sculpted look. As a result, don’t be surprised if you suddenly get the desire to work out daily and focus on ab exercises. Soon enough you might get defined and prominent 6 pack abs just like you once had…or are able to discover them for the first time!
Body Sculpting with Laser Liposuction
Non-invasive laser liposuction is a much more affordable, safe, painless and effective method of losing dad bod and getting ripped abs as compared to surgical liposuction. During the laser liposuction, your technician will place fiber optic diodes on your abs and stomach. These diodes emit infrared laser light and heat up the area to break the fat cells and melt the cell matter. The liquefied fat debris is transported to the lymphatic system after passing through the lymph nodes, and it is excreted out of the body as a waste product.
The layer of stubborn fat cells sits right below your dermal cells. This gives your abdomen its soft and round appearance. But once the fat cells are eliminated from the body, the skin cells go back to their original position, and as a result, the stomach looks flatter, and the abs look more contoured and defined.
Depending on the shape and size of your dad bod, you will need between 6 to 12 sessions to lose that stubborn belly fat and must build the muscles underneath in order to see a visible 6 pack. Remember, noninvasive body contouring, only eliminates fat it doesn’t create muscle, but it will help uncover the muscle that’s already there!
