Can extra fat be removed from the abdomen by injections?

Q:

I have extra weight around my abdomen, and due to my age and medical condition, I would rather not go through surgery. I am a diabetic type 11. Can extra fat be removed from the abdomen by injections?

A:

There are non surgical procedures that you can do to get rid of fat, such as liposonix, vasershape, and other things.  Probably the best results for fat reduction however in my opinion, is coolsculpting, which freezes the fat.  Within about 4 months you see the fat melt away by probably about 25%.  Multiple treatments can be done to increase the results.  Good luck.
