What is the cost to have my lower belly fat reduced by a few inches?

Q:

I have been trying to lose weight for years with no luck. I am in the army and exercise a lot. I can run 5 miles in 45 minutes, walk with a 120 lb backpack for over 15 miles with no problem. My diet consists of 90% vegetables. But the weight refuses to come off. All I require is 7 inches to be removed from my waist, to maintain my army height and weight standards. What is the cost to have my lower belly fat reduced by a few inches?

A:

It is impossible to tell whether you need liposuction or a tummy tuck. Or if any of the two surgeries would be of help if your fat is intra-abdominal that is visceral fat. Consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
