Where do you feel you store your excess fat?
Do you have areas of unwanted fat that you do not know how to get rid of? Have you tried everything, from eating healthy to exercising, but nothing seems to work? You are not the only one. Many individuals struggle with their bodies retaining fat cells in specific areas.
Where you store excess fat depends on many factors. Men are more likely to carry excess fat in their abdomen, buttocks and chest creating an ‘apple’ shape appearance. Whereas women tend to carry fat in their breasts, abdomen, buttocks and thighs creating a ‘pear’ shape appearance. However, the back of the upper arms and under the chin are also common areas where excess fat can be stored especially as we age and skin laxity develops. Considering your targeted area(s), weight loss goals and overall health, our trained VitalLife doctors will help you determine which treatment method(s) will be best for you.
Fact vs Myth
The reason we all tend to store excess fat in certain areas depends on many underlying causes such as:
It is a myth that exercising a particular area will lead to losing weight in that area. This does not mean you should stop exercising! Exercising the area where your excess fat is located will tone the muscle structure that is located beneath the fat, which may improve the appearance.
It is a myth that dieting will lead to weight loss in a specific area. When we lose weight, the weight loss occurs across the entire body not just in one specific area. Unfortunately, this means you will lose weight in places you may not wish to. For example, you may have achieved your goal of losing your excess fat in the specific area you wanted to however, the weight loss also impacted your face leaving it very thin or gaunt.

The success of targeted therapy to rid yourself of excess fat in specific areas also depends on how healthy your lifestyle is, both before and after you are treated. Healthy lifestyle recommendations include:
- Exercises that contain both aerobic and strength training components
