Belly Fat

Targeting Love Handles and Belly Fat

More than 50% of fat cells in men are located in the midsection which causes men to have more belly fat than women. Women have more fat cells in the hips, buttocks and thigh areas, genetically they may store fat in those areas more than belly fat. Poor diet and exercise allow visceral fat to build up around your internal organs which not only causes weight gain but can also cause diseases of the heart and diabetes.

The best way to prevent and get rid of visceral fat is to maintain a healthy, balanced diet with fiber, fruits and vegetables, lean protein. Additionally, having at least 30 minutes of exercise a few times a week will help decrease belly fat and maintain a healthy weight. Following a healthy routine sets you up for success in losing not only fat in the abdomen and flank area but also other areas of the body that store visceral fat.

Subcutaneous fat is less dangerous than visceral fat but can still bring difficulty to those who don’t like the look of the jiggly fat that is more surface level. Maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine can help with subcutaneous fat loss.

Most people find their belly fat and/or love handles to be an area of insecurity. Whether it’s visceral or subcutaneous fat, sometimes diet and exercise don’t work on a specific area or place where fat is extra resistant. Once you’ve had a consistent routine and a specific area remains resistant, you may begin to look into body sculpting options. This could be surgical or non-surgical.

One option for stubborn fat is liposuction. Liposuction permanently and painlessly removes the areas of fat that are resistant to these efforts resulting in a smoother, tighter appearance in these trouble spots. During the procedure a tiny cannula is inserted under the skin while lasers “melt” the fat which is then suctioned away.  You will typically be under anesthesia during the procedure. Liposuction does have a few days of recovery involved.

If you’re looking for a non-surgical option, we offer TruSculptID treatments.  TruSculptID is a non-surgical, body-sculpting treatment that allows you to personalize your ideal body in as little as one 15-minute treatment. truSculpt iD is a safe and effective technology that is clinically proven to permanently eliminate fat cells in stubborn areas around your abdomen and flanks.
