Men and women of all ages often suffer from stubborn areas of fat. These are fat pockets that don’t seem to reduce no matter how much exercise or dieting is done, and they can be extremely frustrating and demotivating. Many people find that stubborn fat often occurs on the abdomen and tummy fat is one of the most common complaints.

The abdomen is known for storing pockets of stubborn fat that can be very difficult to get rid of even with a healthy lifestyle. Women tend to suffer from stubborn fat on abdomen more than men due to hormonal differences, but it is a problem that can affect anyone. Tummy fat can get worse with age as the body’s metabolism begins to slow down and losing fat becomes more difficult. Sometimes excess fat is present around the abdominal organs, this is known as visceral fat. Visceral fat can only be reduced by lifestyle modification like  diet and exercise.

Stubborn sub cutaneous fat on the abdomen is a perfectly natural occurrence that can be present on even those who exercise regularly and eat well. It can have a significant impact on an individual’s self-confidence and their happiness within their body.

VASER Liposuction

Our team at Hans Place Practice are some of the UK’s leading VASER Liposuction doctors, with a wealth of experience and knowledge in successfully helping patients lose stubborn fat on the abdomen. VASER Lipo is a cosmetic treatment which uses targeted ultrasound technology in order to remove tummy fat and reshape the abdomen. A small probe emits sound energy into the area to break up the fatty tissue while preserving the other surrounding tissue. The liquified fat is removed using an aspiration process, and finally, the area is sculpted using specific suction cannulas.

After using Vaser liposuction to treat stubborn fat on the abdomen, some people also choose Renuvion to tighten and tone the area. Renuvion is a skin and tissue firming treatment that uses radiofrequency energy cooled by helium. This energy contracts the subdermal tissue in the abdomen and boosts collagen production, resulting in an instant firming effect.
