Belly fat

Having belly fat on any kind of body always destroys the full body image, giving the impression of an unhealthy lifestyle. Belly fat does not only bother overweight people, but everyone. Everyone can gain belly fat regardless of their body weight, a skinny person with small arms and small legs can still carry a big belly. How can we get rid of these stubborn fat so that we can easily take pictures without holding the belly in?!

What is belly fat?

Belly fat refers to excess fat accumulated around the abdomen. Commonly located on the upper part of the belly button and the front of the waist. Fat is more easily accumulated at the waist and abdomen than other body parts, leading to the formation of belly fat.

Causes

The formation of belly fat is simply the accumulation of fat. As the abdomen tends to accumulate fat which is difficult to lose, it is totally normal that people with a flat abdomen also have subcutaneous fat and visible belly. The reasons behind the fat accumulation are heavily related to lifestyle.

1. Sedentary lifestyle:

Being physically inactive, lounging on the sofa and watching TV after meals, having snacks while using the computer… These are the common behaviours that lead to an imbalance of energy intake and output. In a long run, the excess energy intake will turn into the fat accumulated around abdomen.

2. Unhealthy diet:

People who overly feed themself will cause over intake of energy and food, and are likely to develop protruding stomach.

3. Poor posture: 

People with insufficient abdominal muscle strength tend to sit and sink back on a chair/sofa without giving enough support to the back/spin. People who arch their backs while walking tend to lean forward unconsciously, leading to changes in ligaments and bones alignments and resulting in anterior pelvic tilt. Body with anterior pelvic tilts seems to show upturned hips, up chest, fat abs as well as the unwanted belly fat.

4. Poor bowel movement: 

Not going to the loo for number two regularly will cause the pile up of waste materials and toxins in the gut. The accumulation of these unwanted substances will encourage the formation of chronic abdominal bloating and distension.

Symptoms

Belly fat can destroy a body image in various ways, some are shown after a big meal with tighter pants or tighter dress, some are shown by love handles, or some causing an overall obesity look.

Affected people

Abdominal belly fat is commonly seen in Asians. People who work long hours in the office, lack exercise and have snacks before bed are at high risk of gaining belly fat. Beer belly is one of the abdominal belly fat.

Treatment

Muscle and fat are in different structures and not interchangeable, it is important to know that it is impossible to turn fat into muscle by any means. Therefore, losing weight and building muscle can be achieved at the same time and causing no conflicts.

If you want to say goodbye to belly fat, you can get the lipodissolve injection treatment that will not cause any pain and is risk-free.

A. CoolSculpting Elite

What is CoolSculpting:

B.Lipodissolve injection – abdomen

What is Lipodissolve injection:

Lipodissolve injection is considered the most safe and effective non-surgical fat reduction treatment, it works particularly well on localised fat reduction such as double chin, chubby face, arms and legs. Lipodissolve injection boosts the metabolic rate of fat tissue, enhances digestion of fat cells, and tightens and lifts the skin.

How does it work?

Lipodissolve injection solution will be administered locally to the subcutaneous fat layer. The active ingredients in the solution will break down the walls of fatty cells and increase the localised concentration of lipase enzymes to facilitate the destruction of fatty cells and let the body flush out the fat as waste via the lymphatic system.

Procedure:

1. Face-to-face consultation: Doctor conducts evaluation of the thickness of the double chin and provides professional advice on whether or not a lipodissolve injection treatment is suitable. If suitable, the injection site will then be marked on the face.

2. Pre-treatment preparation: Local anesthetic. Clean and disinfect the injection areas.

3. Injection: Administered with blunt needles at the double chin. Only one injection at each injection zone.

4. Post-treatment precautions.

Duration: 30-45 mins

Who is it for?

  • People with problems of stubborn and troubled fat around the body including shoulders, inner thighs, joints, abdomens, etc;
  • People who have fat deposits in the body and want to eliminate cellulite;

C. BTL EMSCULPT

What is BTL EMSCULPT:

Developed by BTL, BTL EMSCULPT is an innovative device that can simultaneously burn fat (19%) and build muscle (16%) by a non-invasive technology. The device offers effective and safe results without emitting any radiation, freezing or high temperature that may damage the epidermis. BTL EMSCULPT has been certified by the US FDA, CE and TGA, and supported by 7 pieces of independent academic research in the United States. EMSCULPT is the same technology that Kim Kardashian has used for shaping her figure.

How does it work:

BTL EMSCULPT adopts a breakthrough technology called High-intensity Focused Electromagnetic Technology (HIFEM) . In only 30 minutes, an energy pulse will stimulate muscle contraction for 20,000 times. The electromagnetic wave emitted from the well designed applicator can penetrate up to 7cm depth of the muscle layer in order to trigger extreme muscular contractions that the human body cannot achieve autonomously. These contractions facilitate fat burning (by increasing breakdown of fat cells) and muscle building and strengthening.

Procedure:

1、Face-to-face consultation: Customise a unique treatment plan for each client based on their condition and desired result.

2、BTL EMSCULPT: Place the applicator tip onto the treatment area, gradually increase the energy intensity.
