3 Ways to Remove Stubborn Fat Pockets
by Health Blogger Mike Dune
Many people diet and exercise, yet still have trouble getting rid of those stubborn pockets of fat commonly known as “muffin tops” or “love handles.” Although these can be difficult to get rid of, it’s not impossible. There are several body contouring procedures available to help people remove these stubborn areas of fat.
A modern non-surgical method known as CoolSculpting is used to slim down trouble areas and tone the body’s overall physique. Since fat cells are sensitive to extreme cold temperature, this treatment is able to freeze unwanted fat cells which are then naturally eliminated by the body. CoolSculpting is FDA-approved and does not cause damage to healthy surrounding tissues.

People who have experienced major weight loss, either through surgery or diet and exercise, often choose body contouring. While losing a significant amount of weight is an excellent achievement, many people are left with excess skin. Body contouring after major weight loss can help tighten excess skin and target those stubborn areas of remaining fat.
Then of course, there is good old fashioned liposuction. One of the most well-known treatments for body contouring and sculpting, liposuction surgically removes unwanted fat from various areas of the body. However, a common misconception is that liposuction is a weight-loss procedure. In fact, liposuction is meant to help patients gain desired results once a healthy weight has already been achieved. For major weight-loss, other treatments such as bariatric surgery should be explored.
If you’re looking for help toning up those trouble areas, these are three of many treatments that can help combat unwanted fat.
