Three Procedures to Combat Stubborn Fat

Have you worked hard to improve your health, lose weight, and get in shape, but you just can’t seem to get the results you want? Unfortunately, it is often that a patient is not able to rid themselves of stubborn fat no matter what they try. Certain areas of the body are more prone to stubborn fat and excess skin, including the tummy or lower abdomen, upper thighs, and upper arms. Luckily, there are some cosmetic surgical procedures that you can get to combat stubborn fat.

Tummy Tuck

The lower abdomen or tummy is one of the places that can be the hardest to slim down. Especially if you have been overweight for some time, are nearing middle age, or going through natural hormonal changes, tummy fat can be impossible to melt away with diet and exercise alone. Part of the problem may be that it is not stubborn fat at all, but rather excess skin tissue. Sometimes, when you lose a lot of weight, the skin is not elastic enough to bounce back, and the only way to remove it is with a tummy tuck.

Thigh and Arm Lifts

Upper thighs and upper arms are a big problem for many women who have lost weight, as well as some men. If you’ve done everything possible and your thighs and upper arms are disproportionate to the rest of the new skinnier you, a surgical thigh or arm lift could give you the results you’re looking for.

Body Jet Liposuction

Body Jet liposuction has a lot of benefits over traditional liposuction, including being a much safer procedure. Body jet liposuction can be used on any of the areas we’ve already mentioned, as well as other stubborn fat pockets. If you only have stubborn fat and not excess skin that won’t tone, liposuction is a much less invasive and less expensive procedure than other cosmetic surgeries.
