The New Year has filled the airwaves with celebrities who are endorsing a colon cleanse to begin the new year. The belief is that by cleansing the intestine it helps people rid the body of toxins that are ultimately unhealthy. According to a recent ABC news story colon cleansing has been around for centuries. It can be accomplished in a number of ways, from supplements to colon hydrotherapy – an enema-like procedure that uses water to flush out the large intestine. Some experts say that the procedure is unnecessary and in some cases can actually be harmful. Most celebrities claim that not only do they feel better after the cleanse but they also claim to lose weight as well. Some claim that the cleanse is excellent for ridding the body of pudgy abdominal fat. So, the question some ask is: can a cleanse make my abdomen is flat as liposuction? Dr. Kim explains to patients that when choosing to have abdominal liposuction, especially for thinner patients, it is important to realize that the best results are from experienced doctors like Dr. Kim who are artistic as well as creative. Liposuction is a take away procedure very similar to sculpting. Dr. Kim uses his skill and artistic flair to achieve not only a flatter abdomen but also and abdomen that will appear naturally flat. While a colon cleanse may reduce a couple of pounds it is misleading to promise that the weight reduction will appear on the abdomen. Liposuction remains one of the most effective ways to target fat reduction in specific areas.
