Too good to be true? If you’ve heard, the Tummy Tuck® Belt is basically a belt that is supposed to help you lose fat in the abdominal area very quickly, resulting in a flatter, firmer you. To use it, a thermal cream is applied, followed by the specially made Tummy Tuck® Belt. People then do two minutes of specifically designed exercises to activate the process, and then return to normal activities for eight more minutes. According to the ads, targeted-abdominal fat loss follows, with nearly a half an inch of abdominal fat being lost in just the first week, followed by an inch over the next 30 days.
Some things to keep in mind:
- The alleged research is never verified: it was supposedly performed by some prominent universities that mysteriously do not have any names or published studies regarding this product
- The ingredients of the thermal fat burning cream are not mentioned
- Instantaneous results are alleged
If actual research was performed by legitimate sources, university backers would likely be listed by name. It is important for people to know in advance what ingredients are in this thermal fat burning cream because certain ingredients can soak into the skin and produce negative side effects, especially when used at the same time as other medications. Logically, we know that no topical cream or glorified girdle can remove fat almost instantaneously (no matter how much we might wish it to be true!).
We understand the desire for a simple and quick fix. But the truth remains that belly fat typically responds to: diet, exercise, and fat removal from procedures like liposuction or CoolSculpting®. Surgical options such as actual tummy tuck surgery can also eliminate loose, excess skin and give the abdomen a firmer, flatter appearance. These are not simple, quick solutions, but they have one thing going for them – they often work! Talk to Dr. Pinsky if you’d like a little help with your tummy troubles. You don’t have to do it all alone, and new options may give you the support you need to compliment your diet and exercise efforts.
