Do you suffer from stubborn diet and exercise resistant fat in certain areas? If you are unhappy with bumps and bulges that refuse to shrink or tone up despite a healthy lifestyle, keep reading to learn more what causes your unique cosmetic concern as well as which treatment or procedure available at The Savin Center in New Haven, CT may best suited to address it.
- Back Fat is most commonly caused by genes and not wearing properly fitted clothing or undergarments, which causes bumps and lumps to protrude out. CoolSculpting® in New Haven, CT can dramatically reduce fat on the back without surgery or downtime, and minimally invasive liposuction is also commonly used to address back fat with dramatic results.
- Belly Fat is often caused by empty calories and too much fat from sugar and carbs, hence the nickname “beer belly.” Many moms also find that the abdominals are a problem area following pregnancy. If you can pinch your fat, it’s superficial and can be treated with the body contouring techniques available at The Savin Center. If your stomach looks swollen and you cannot pinch your fat, this may be a deeper health problem and cardiovascular exercise and a diet is recommended.
- Thigh and Hip Fat are most often caused by gender and aging, making them a common concern for women that seems to worsen with each passing year. Inner thigh fat, fat on the outer thighs (“saddle bags”), “love handles” and “muffin top” are just some of the names for this particular problem. CoolSculpting® is an extremely effective tool for reducing fat on the sides of the abdominals and hips known as the flanks, while liposuction is usually the best tool for slimming both the inner and outer thighs.
- Arm Fat is typically caused by overall weight gain. The arms usually contain fewer fat cells than other areas of the body like the abdominals or thighs making them a less common problem area, though many patients are unhappy with the appearance of their arms. Occasionally, the aging process can worsen this problem, resulting in sagging fat known as “bat wings.” Liposuction in New Haven with Dr. Lisa Donofrio can eliminate this problem for more slender, toned arms you’ll love to show off in short sleeves this summer.
