Despite our best efforts to lose weight, our bodies could still cling on to stubborn fat in certain areas. The abdomen, submental area, arms, and legs are often the most common areas where fat seems to stick and not burn off. The good news is that solutions are available for getting the body you want. At our Newport Beach office, we offer surgical solutions like liposuction and non-surgical options like Emsculpt NEO®. Connect with us today to learn more about each and get your desired body.

How Does ​​Stubborn Fat Form?

The appearance of belly fat and love handles often builds up due to a lack of exercise and improper nutrition. Some of us may still struggle with these issues even if we do our best to care for ourselves. Of the many factors contributing to those stubborn fat areas, age and genetics are the least within our control. As we get older, our metabolisms slow down, causing greater fat retention over time.

Why Is Stubborn Fat Hard to Burn?

Eliminating fat from specific areas is impossible because fat can’t be spot-reduced. Our bodies simply do not allow us to target select fat areas. Exercises like abdominal crunches can effectively tone our muscles, but the layer of fat above the muscles may remain. The only way to eliminate fat from select body areas is through surgery or body sculpting.

Treatment Options

Liposuction can be an effective way to remove stubborn body fat. This treatment involves using a cannula to break down and suction out fat in select areas. The treatment can be combined with skin tightening surgery for the best results. 

Emsculpt NEO® is a non-invasive option that can be worthwhile if you’re already losing weight. When combined with regular diet and exercise, NEO® can help speed up the fat reduction in targeted areas while simultaneously toning your muscles. The result is improved muscle definition and a better physique.
