You may work diligently to stay in shape, eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly but find certain areas of your body still storing fat and not responding to your efforts to reshape them. How women are shaped can often be attributed to two main factors: age and heredity.
Women under 40 years of age will often store fat in their thighs, buttocks, and hips. When losing weight, they may experience a reduction in their breasts and waists first, then their lower bodies. After the age of 40, as hormone levels decrease, many women have a more difficult time reducing fat in the belly, upper arms, upper abdomen, and back.
Genetics also affect where fat is stored. Your shape is largely inherited, making problem areas more challenging to correct.
The good news is that there are options for women who wish to redefine and reduce fat in parts of their bodies. At California Skin and Laser Center, Dr. Gerald N. Bock has been helping patients increase their confidence and look their best for nearly 20 years. A recognized lecturer, educator, and leader in the medical specialties of dermatology, pediatrics, allergy, and dermatopathology, Dr. Bock remains at the forefront in cosmetic and medical dermatology.
California Skin and Laser Center offers many cosmetic options for patients who desire to change their appearances and restore their youthful presence. One option is CoolSculpting, a revolutionary procedure and the only non-surgical treatment for fat reduction that is approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Scientists at Massachusetts General Hospital’s Wellman Center developed the concept that fat could be “frozen away.” With CoolSculpting, patients can target problem fat areas without surgery or recovery time. The treatment is not a solution for obesity and works best for patients who wish to trim certain parts of their bodies such as:
- Love handles
- Inner thighs
- Upper arms
