The Top 4 Ways to Improve Your Waistline This Summer

If you’ve been thinking about doing something about those hard to manage inches around your belly, now is the perfect time. Here, we’ll look at four ways to improve your midsection to give you the confidence to look great and wear whatever you want—from this summer’s sexy new bikini to that little black number that’s been hiding in your closet. Dr. Burgess has all of your tummy-sculpting needs covered, whether you have a little extra fat hanging around or it’s time to finally go for that transformative procedure you’ve been wanting.



With summer in full swing and the temperatures maxed out, it’s time to get some relief from the heat with the coolest fat-eliminator around—CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting is a fantastic alternative to surgery and is perfect for those individuals who are already near their ideal weight goals and have a few, smaller trouble spots of pesky fat that have become resistant to diet and exercise. With quick and easy treatments that typically take about an hour, CoolSculpting requires little to no downtime so that you can get in, get out, and get back to your busy life without skipping a beat.


Thermioffers a whole line of innovative enhancement options that tighten, slim, rejuvenate, and revitalize your waistline.

  • ThermiSmooth®If loose skin around your waistline is your primary concern, Dr. Burgess may recommend treatments with ThermiSmooth. ThermiSmooth uses a handpiece on top of the skin and gently heats the selected areas, delivering a specific radio frequency energy to support collagen production. While this approach requires no downtime, four to six ThermiSmooth sessions are usually recommended for optimal results. ThermiSmooth is an excellent midsection treatment as it can effectively be used on the abdomen, flanks, back, and more.
  • ThermiTight®For an even more powerful tightening treatment, ThermiTight is a fabulous alternative! ThermiTight is a minimally invasive procedure with great skin tightening results. Typically performed in just one treatment, this procedure involves inserting a small probe that emits radiofrequency energy just underneath the skin to dramatically tighten the dermis from within. Layering with additional ThermiSmooth over the top produces even better results.


For a more drastic outcome, Dr. Burgess may suggest liposuction with VASERlipoto address your abdominal area. During this procedure, ultrasound energy is used to treat unwanted fat, loosening the cells from the surrounding tissues so they can be gently removed through a small tube. With a single VASERlipo treatment, you can eliminate those pesky pockets of protruding inches permanently.

Tummy Tuck

For a complete midsection transformation, a tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, may be just what you need. Not only can a tummy tuck have your midsection looking tight and slender again, but it can also restore abdominal strength lost to separated muscles caused by pregnancy and childbirth. Dr. Burgess often performs a tummy tuck in combination with liposuction to best improve and define the stomach area as well.
