Despite our best efforts, losing weight can be a challenging endeavor. After all, there are a number of factors that go into determining not only whether or not you will lose those unwanted pounds but also the rate at which those pounds will come off. Studies have shown that the human body has a tendency to hold fat in specific areas, namely the hips, buttocks, stomach, thighs, and the chin. Thankfully, modern-day technology is providing many people with a way of targeting fat in these areas, enabling them to achieve the body composition they have always wanted. Below we will detail a few of the more common fat reduction treatments that can target stubborn body fat, including liposuction and CoolSculpting®.
Why Weight Loss is Difficult For Some People
Before we explore the fat reduction treatments currently available, let’s take a moment to identify some of the things that contribute to excess fat. As human beings, sleep patterns, nutritional habits, cortisol levels, and insulin resistance all play a role in how and where stubborn fat is deposited in the body. Not surprisingly, these fat deposits can affect the way your clothes fit and leave you with a physique that is not proportional. This could mean love handles, belly fat that covers your abdominal muscles, double chins, and much more.
Is Liposuction Right for You?
When it comes to fat reduction treatments, liposuction is one of the most popular options currently available. If you’re not familiar with liposuction, it is a surgical procedure whereby stubborn fat is removed from areas of the body that have not responded to diet and exercise. That said, it is important to note that there are two liposuction variants, tumescent and laser.
Is CoolSculpting® the Right Choice?
CoolSculpting®, as the name may imply, is a procedure that entails freezing the fat cells underneath the skin. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they are then removed from the body naturally via the liver. As far as safety is concerned, CoolSculpting® is a nonsurgical procedure. It is non-invasive and results in little to no downtime.
The procedures mentioned above are not intended to take the place of diet and exercise; instead, they are intended for those who are finding it difficult to remove fat from specific areas of the body. All of these procedures at Nowak Aesthetics are FDA-approved, and they each have a track record of proven efficacy and safety. We are conveniently located in Chula Vista, CA.
