What is stubborn fat?

Stubborn fat refers to pockets of fat in the body that are resistant to diet and exercise efforts. These areas tend to retain excess fat despite a person’s best attempts to lose weight or tone up. Common areas where stubborn fat tends to accumulate include the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, and upper arms. If you are feeling frustrated with the unwanted fat on your body that won’t go away with diet or exercise, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Warner. He can answer any questions you have and discuss whether liposuction is the right treatment option for you.

Why does stubborn fat form in the body?

The reason behind this resistance lies in the unique physiology of fat cells in these regions, which have a higher density of certain receptors that hinder fat breakdown. Factors such as genetics, hormonal imbalances, and age can also contribute to the development of stubborn fat. 

How can Florida Eyelid and Cosmetic Surgery help?

At Florida Eyelid and Cosmetic Surgery in Orlando, we provide liposuction treatments. Liposuction is a surgical procedure that offers an effective solution for treating stubborn fat deposits in various areas of the body. During liposuction, Dr. Warner will make small incisions and insert a thin tube called a cannula into the targeted fat pockets. The cannula is connected to a suction device, which suctions out the excess fat cells, reshaping the body contours.

Liposuction can be performed on areas such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, arms, and neck. It is important to note that liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure but rather a body sculpting technique. It is suitable for individuals who are close to their ideal weight but have localized areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
