WHAT IS BELLY FAT?
Many people, both male and female, are affected by this concern which can make the body look less toned and out of shape. Belly fat can lead to feelings of lost confidence, especially if a person feels it is noticeable to others, and in many cases it can make a person feel that their clothes are ill-fitting and uncomfortable.
WHAT CAUSES BELLY FAT?
Belly fat is simply caused by an accumulation of fat around the stomach. The most likely cause is weight gain, which often occurs from having consumed more calories than the body needs. Gaining extra pounds usually happens over a period of time, rather than having the odd treat here and there. The amount of calories that the body requires on a daily basis can vary from one person to another, and depends on their height and activity levels. If we regularly exceed our body’s limitation without burning off the excess energy, it gets stored as fat. Some people find it easier to maintain their ideal shape, size and weight than others, and in many cases ageing can be a contributing factor.
HOW CAN IT BE TREATED?
At Dr. Grace Kelly Aesthetic Skin Clinic we explore your potential cause of belly fat before we recommend the most suitable form of treatment. As medically trained clinicians we have the knowledge to help you make healthy choices in your lifestyle to help with losing weight and reducing body fat. However, we recognise that for some people this is easier said than done. To assist the results of a balanced diet and regular exercise our clinic may recommend aqualyx fat dissolving injections or EMSculpt. These treatments can help to reduce fat around the stomach and produce a slimmer appearance.
