Stubborn Fat Under Arms

Stubborn Fat Under Arms

Stubborn fat under the arms is a very common problem for many men and women, also known as axilla fat or armpit fat. It is the area around the armpit, underneath the arms where fat is prone to build up and bulge. For a lot of people, stubborn fat under the arms leads to a drop in self-confidence and can leave them feeling conscious about their appearance.

Many different reasons can cause axilla fat. For some, it is a genetic trait. Being overweight, having large breasts, and hormone imbalances are all also causes of stubborn fat under the arms.

This fat under the arms is  common among women and men. For many, no matter how much exercise or dieting is done, the stubborn fat under the arms never seems to decrease. There are a few cosmetic treatments that can be used to reduce the appearance of armpit fat.

Stubborn Fat Under Arms Treatments At Hans Place Practice

At Hans Place Practice, we understand that stubborn fat under the arms can impact an individual’s happiness in their own skin. We specialise in cosmetic treatments that can fix problem areas such as armpit fat.

VASER Liposuction

VASER lipo uses ultrasound technology to remove fat from stubborn areas such as under the arms. It works by emitting sound energy into the affected area to break up the fatty tissue while preserving all other surrounding tissue. The liquefied fat is then removed using an aspiration process which has been specifically designed to minimise damage to the rest of the body.

After the excess fat has been removed, the area under the arm is sculpted using an array of specific suction cannulas. Vaser lipo is particularly suited for treating stubborn fat under arms because it can treat deep, superficial fat in problem areas.

Some patients are left with sagging skin after VASER liposuction or fat loss and require extra skin tightening. Renuvion can be used to tighten and tone the skin under the arms to leave it smooth and firm. This treatment involves a Renuvion wand being precisely inserted into the area to emit radio-frequency energy. This encourages new collagen production in the skin and provides an instant firming effect.
