What would be best non-surgical procedure for belly fat?

Q:

I'm 59, eat very healthy, walk 4-5 miles a day but remain overweight. I'm 5'3" and currently 153 lbs. I have a stomach that could pass for being pregnant.  Admittedly, I'm not doing any ab exercises. Is there a non-surgical procedure you could recommend to help me get rid of this bulging stomach? Thank you.

A:

 An examination would most likely be required to answer your question. Further , your expectations will be a major factor in determining what procedure would be best for you. Most patients desire their pre-preganacy abdominal appearance. This can be very difficult to achieve with non-invasive techniques. Best,
