Who really wants to go under the invasive process of a tummy tuck surgery? For decades, women and men have been putting themselves through this surgery to get a firmer, more toned waistline. That was before these four non-invasive treatments hit the market. Today, you don’t have to go through all the pain and agony of a tummy tuck. Check out these four alternatives to tummy tuck surgery in Ottawa that will remove fat cells quickly and effectively without any pain or downtime. 


Did you know that you can freeze your fat cells away? With the right tools and application methods, fat cells can be removed from the body through a process we call cryolipolysis through CoolSculpting® technology. This works through the controlled freezing of the fat cells in your tummy. Once frozen, the cells begin to die off. Your body then metabolizes the dead cells and removes them from your body. The result – a few pounds less body fat from your waistline.  

Won’t the cells just regenerate? No, in fact, removed fat cells do not regenerate at all. The process completely rids the targeted fat cells and it also helps to reduce the fat deposits in the area. Best of all, it only takes a few treatments to start seeing the desired results. And because it’s a non-invasive treatment, you can be in and out of the treatment room in less than an hour to return to your regular duties. 


EMSCULPT® is the only non-invasive procedure in the world that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM®) technology to create powerful contractions that burn fat and tones at the same time. You can get a smaller and more defined mid-drift in only a few sessions. Results will also continue to improve for several weeks after your last session. 

The beauty of the EMSCULPT® procedure is that it is highly effective. Over 95% of clients have optimal results, where on average they found a 19% reduction in fat and 16% increase in muscle mass. You get all the benefits of an intense workout without putting in any of the effort! 


You can also get similar results to a tummy tuck surgery with laser treatments. One, in particular, is the SculpSure® treatment. This hyperthermic laser procedure uses submental applicators to effectively diminish the presence of unwanted belly fat. 

In as little as 6 weeks, you will notice impressive results and a more defined body shape. The procedure is also entirely non-intrusive and won’t cause any scarring or other visible forms of damage, only fat loss. If the thought of lasers makes you nervous, you might be better suited for one of the above treatments or the EMTONE® treatment, which is next on our list. But rest assured, during your first consultation, your skincare professional will discuss all your concerns to match you with the right treatment method. They will always make sure you understand what is involved in each process and that you are comfortable with proceeding.


Is your cellulite getting you down? These normal fat deposits can make your stomach look bumpy and dimply in texture. Even those who have flatter stomachs can suffer from cellulite formation. Fortunately, there’s a non-invasive treatment that can target the development of cellulite as well, and it’s called EMTONE®. EMTONE® uses a handheld device to heat the target tissue to break up the fibrous bands and shrink the fat deposits. 

Once reduced, your body will go to work to metabolize and remove the waste from your body naturally. The thermal radiofrequency energy also stimulates new collagen and elastin production, causing an overall improvement in the skin’s texture and elasticity. It’s a double whammy – reducing those stubborn dimples and tightening the skin at the same time. If it sounds time-consuming, it’s actually not. EMTONE® treatments will only take about 20 minutes out of your day. It’s one of the quickest and most effective non-invasive body contouring solutions around.
