Does shapewear reduce belly fat?

Does shapewear reduce belly fat?

You have spent much monetary and time effort to use shapewear to improve your body contours over the last few years, and yet not able to get the outcome you desire? 

Before we answer that question, we need to know how body shapewear works, and its limitation. Shapewear curbs your appetite, thus helping with your body weight loss. It also provides immediate help in camouflaging body bulges, especially when you need to attend a special event in a nice dress. However, it does NOT reduce your belly fat at all. 

Instead, prolonged use of shapewear may exacerbate gastric acid reflux or cause eczema flare-up or skin irritation due to heat/sweatiness from the shapewear, or it may constrict blood circulation to lower legs. What should you do to reduce belly fat then?

Fret not, at Healthsprings, we are equipped with medically proven solutions to help you realise your dream body shape. 


Vanquish ME

This body slimming device uses a patented selective RF system to precisely target the adipose (fat) tissue where it increases the temperature to destruct the fat cells leading to apoptosis of fat cells. The apoptotic (dead) fat cells are then flushed out by the body over time. 

This is an excellent option for those who had tried diet and exercise, yet still have pockets of fats in stubborn areas.

The advantages of Vanquish are:

  • It is safe and FDA approved 
  • Contactless 
  • Can treat large areas e.g. abdomen from flank to the flank, inner and outer thigh at one go 
  • Suitable for patients of all sizes 
  • Comfortable with zero downtime 


Exilis Elite 

Exilis Elite delivers RF energy to the target areas to heat up the deep tissue which results in collagen remodeling. This then stimulates fibroblasts to produce more collagen. The overall collagen rebuilding will help to firm up the sagging skin and tighten the loose skin. This procedure is ideal especially for patients who are not significantly overweight but have concerns with sagging skin, and for those who want to reduce unwanted bulges and firm up stubborn areas which are difficult to lose through diet and exercise alone. 

Exilis Elite is a safe, FDA-approved, non-invasive, and comfortable treatment without downtime. 



Embody utilities High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to help patients build muscles and burn fats simultaneously. HIFEM induces 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions which the body cannot produce on its own. This results in a more sculpted body with reduced fat, more muscle mass, and toned body parts. Each treatment takes about 30 minutes. It is FDA-approved, non-invasive, and safe with zero downtime.

This treatment is especially useful to treat:

  • ïPost pregnancy Diastasis Recti 
  • ïLoose abdominal muscle skin and tone  
  • ïSaggy butts 


Venus Legacy 

Venus Legacy uses Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields to produce heat under the skin’s surface. This process helps to naturally increase collagen and elastin fibres, while also shrinking the volume of fat cells. At the same time, an adjustable pulsed suction (called VariPulse™) gently works to pull the skin upward, allowing the energy to travel deeper and providing a more comfortable and effective treatment. 

Venus Legacy can achieve fat reduction, cellulite improvement, skin tightening, and a more sculpted body. 

Not only it works on the tummy, it also can be used to get rid of fats in stubborn areas like love handles, thighs, upper arms and bra bulges. 

It is non-invasive, has no down time, pain-free, and suitable for all skin tones.
