Issues With Shape of Waist

Issues With Shape of Waist

A slim yet curvaceous waist with some defined shape to it is often portrayed as the ideal body shape, but some people struggle with a shape challenged waist. A shape challenged waist, thick waist or poorly defined waist is when there is little definition in the area.

The waist is made up  of fat, which can often be difficult to reduce using diet and exercise. The fat around the back and  the waist is known as subcutaneous fat, which is a layer of fatty tissue that sits just below the skin. The underlying bony and muscular frame which is determined by genetics can also often reduce the appearance of a waist, especially in lean or ‘apple shape’ women.

Having a thick or poorly defined waist is a very common complaint and something that affects men but more often women. Those with a shape challenged waist might find that it impacts their happiness in their body and has an impact on self-esteem.

Shape Challenged Waist Treatments At Hans Place Practice

Here at Hans Place Practice, we are specialists in offering cosmetic treatment options that can reduce the appearance of a thick or shape challenged waist. We advise anyone considering treatment to book in for a consultation with one of our experts to discuss the treatments in detail.

VASER Liposuction

Hans Place Practice is one of the leading VASER Liposuction providers in the UK. It is a non-invasive treatment that can selectively remove fat from targeted areas such as the waist. VASER Lipo is a day procedure which requires no hospital stay or general anaesthetic, making recovery times minimal. It is particularly good at treating stubborn fat pockets such as those around the waist as it uses ultrasound energy to emulsify fatty tissue.

Renuvion is a tightening and toning treatment that can be used alongside VASER Liposuction for treating a shape challenged waist. It is used to firm and tighten the skin in the area after the fatty tissue has been removed through VASER Lipo. Renuvion uses radio-frequency energy cooled by helium which contracts the subdermal collagen tissue and boosts collagen production in the body.
