WHAT IS STUBBORN FAT?
It is determined by its reluctance to reduce, despite the efforts of a healthy lifestyle. Stubborn fat commonly appears on the stomach, back, thighs, upper arms, knees, buttocks and under the chin. It usually appears as a small, isolated deposit that a person is able to pinch and causes a disruption to the body’s smooth curves. Stubborn fat can be very frustrating which causes the affected person an aesthetic concern, especially when wanting to wear fitted clothing or swimwear.
WHAT CAUSES STUBBORN FAT?
The main cause of stubborn fat is excess fatty tissue in an area beneath the skin – known as subcutaneous fat. Many people desire a shapely body and take steps to ensure they look and feel fit and healthy. It is all too common, when a person has successfully reduced their body weight, for a small amount of excess fat to remain. This is also frequently experienced by women following childbirth, when loose skin can also contribute to an appearance that is less toned. The ageing process can also affect a person’s ability to lose weight and reduce body fat, often due to changes in hormones.
HOW CAN THIS BE TREATED?
Our approach to stubborn fat may depend on which part of the body is affected. Larger areas of the body, such as the stomach, back, thighs and buttocks may be treated using EMSculpt; a revolutionary treatment that works to burn fat and build muscle. Aqualyx fat dissolving injections can treat larger and smaller areas, safely and effectively removing stubborn fat from the body. We often recommend a course of treatments to achieve optimal results that can be maintained long-term through a healthy and active lifestyle.
