Areas of unwanted fat are a common concern for many cosmetic surgery patients. Whether it comes in the form of a persistent stomach "pooch" after pregnancy or losing a lot of weight, localized fat can be difficult to get rid of permanently.
Fat cells act in a very unique way. When weight is gained, fat cells get bigger. After dieting and weight loss, fat cells get smaller but the number of fat cells stays the same. Therefore, many people struggle to get rid of excess body fat. Even with proper diet and exercise, results are not always guaranteed. With new technologies to rid yourself of fat cells, that trim fit body you want is not out of reach.
In recent years, both non-invasive and minimally invasive alternatives have been gaining popularity. These body contouring treatments typically do not require an incision or anesthesia, and they often come with less downtime. Thanks to these new medical technologies, there are a variety of procedures to meet almost any need. From non-invasive methods such as the advanced CoolSculpting® to neck treatment with Kybella® injections, you too can have a sculpted, slender body that others will envy.
You should consider fat reduction if you are struggling with pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise programs; have undesirable but limited fat deposits on your abdomen, flanks, back, or thighs; or if you wish to achieve a trimmer appearance without having to undergo surgery.
