You’re probably all too familiar with the phenomenon known as “muffin top.” That section of fat and tissue that pops out over your waistband often remains behind no matter how many sit-ups, crunches and lunges you try. When all else fails, liposuction from my Beverly Hills practice can be the perfect solution.
Belly Fat Blues
The bottom line for weight loss is to burn more calories than you consume, forcing the body to turn toward using up its collected fat stores for energy. An exercise routine helps this process along even faster, plus contributes to heart health and stress reduction. Muscle building exercises bring toned definition to muscle groups to replace the bulge. However, there’s one area that’s notoriously resistant to any form of diet, exercise and toning: your belly.
One reason the belly is so difficult is that the fat deposits there may not just be a result of your lifestyle. Hormones are a big contributor to belly fat, especially as you grow older, which is why our bodies change shape with age. Lots of stress over the long-term results in excess cortisol production that also triggers fat storage around your midsection.
Despite your best efforts, these underlying contributors may make typical weight loss attempts ineffective when it comes to belly fat.
How Lipo Helps
If dieting and exercise have made zero impact on your muffin top, it might be time to get serious about alternatives. Liposuction is one solution for men and women who have been unable to smooth out their midsection any other way.
Through liposuction, the fat cells are permanently removed from the target area, leaving you looking slimmer and trimmer. As long as you continue following your existing healthy lifestyle, that muffin top should finally be melted away for good.
