Hcg Diet in Relation to Tummy Tuck: Which is more effective?

If you have stubborn areas of fat in the abdominal region,dieting is often not the best way to eliminate it, a tummy tuck is usually recommended. However, if you decide to embark on a weight loss program like the HCG diet, it’s a good idea to look at it in relation to the tummy tuck, and then determine which is more effective (click here).

HCG Diet
The HCG diet is a medically supervised weight loss program, designed to help you lose weight the healthy way. Thediet controls calories, and incorporates the Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) hormone, which helps to suppress appetite and fatigue. HCG alsoassists with the breakdown of fat, so that the body utilizes fat stores for fuel, which ensures that you do not lose muscle mass.

Tummy Tuck
The tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that is done to flatten your tummy, as it eliminates excess fat and skin, and also tightens the abdominal muscles. It’s the ideal procedure for individuals with too much flab in the tummy.

Which is more effective?
The choice to go with the HCG diet or a tummy tuck will depend on the amount of weight you have to lose. The HCG diet can produce some very dramatic weight loss results, as you can lose up to 1lb per day. It is a good option for individuals who need to achieve overall weight loss.

However, if you only have excess skin and fat in the abdominal area only, a tummy tuck may be more effective.  It is important to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon to determine which would be most appropriate for you, based on your weight loss goals.
