Understanding and Managing Excess Body Fat

Deemesh Oudit - Manchester Plastic Surgery

1. What is Excess Body Fat?

Excess body fat is a condition characterized by an abnormal or excessive accumulation of adipose tissue in the body. This surplus of fat can compromise an individual’s health, leading to a range of medical concerns, including obesity, which is often quantified by a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or higher. While body fat is essential for storing energy, protecting organs, and regulating hormones, an excess can hinder these functions and increase the risk of health complications.

2. What Causes Excess Body Fat?

The causes of excess body fat are multifaceted and can include a combination of genetic, physiological, behavioral, and environmental factors. A primary cause is an energy imbalance where the number of calories consumed surpasses the amount expended through daily activities and metabolic processes. This imbalance can be attributed to:

– Poor dietary choices high in calories, fats, and sugars
– Sedentary lifestyle lacking sufficient physical activity
– Genetic predisposition affecting metabolism and fat storage
– Hormonal imbalances, such as hypothyroidism or Cushing’s syndrome
– Psychological factors like stress and emotional eating
– Certain medications that promote weight gain
– Sleep deprivation, which can disrupt appetite-regulating hormones

Understanding these causes is crucial in developing effective strategies for managing and reducing excess body fat.

3. How to Treat Excess Body Fat?

Dr. Deemesh Oudit employs a specialized approach to treating excess body fat, focusing on advanced surgical techniques and cosmetic procedures. Patients can benefit from the following treatments, each designed to target body fat effectively and safely:

  • VASER Liposuction: An advanced form of liposuction that uses ultrasonic technology to break down fat cells before removal. This procedure is less invasive and can be more precise in targeting specific areas of fat accumulation.

  • Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck): Ideal for removing excess skin and fat from the abdominal area and tightening the abdominal muscles, resulting in a smoother and firmer abdominal profile.

  • Liposuction: A traditional method for removing excess fat deposits, improving body contours and proportion, and ultimately enhancing self-image.

  • Brazilian Butt Lift: This involves transferring fat from other areas of the body to the buttocks to create a more rounded and prominent appearance.

  • Thigh Lift: Targeting the inner or outer thighs, this procedure removes excess skin and fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body.

  • Brachioplasty (Arm Lift): Aimed at reducing excess sagging skin, tightening and smoothing the underlying supportive tissue, and reducing localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region.

  • Fat Transfer: A natural approach to body contouring that involves transferring fat from one part of the body to another, enhancing or smoothing out body contours.

  • Body Shaping: Tailored body contouring procedures designed to address specific areas of concern, creating a more aesthetically pleasing body profile.

Each treatment is supported by Dr. Oudit’s extensive experience and commitment to patient safety and satisfaction. To determine the most appropriate approach for your needs, Dr. Oudit will conduct a thorough consultation, considering your unique body composition and aesthetic goals.

It’s important to note that treatment for excess body fat should be tailored to the individual, considering their health status, weight loss goals, and any underlying medical conditions. A comprehensive approach that addresses the root causes and promotes sustainable lifestyle changes is often the most effective way to manage and reduce excess body fat, leading to improved overall health and well-being.

I made a decision to have my left ear pinned back because it was very prominent. I made an approach to the local BMI hospital and was given an appointment to consult with Mr Deemish. He explained the procedure to me and I left the consultation happy and confident that he would do a great job. Two weeks after the consultation I had the opertation. The operation was performed under a local anaesthetic, I did not feel anything apart from the injection. My ear was dressed and my head wrapped in a bandage, I had to keep this one for one week. I had mild pain and discomfort but was able to control that with paracetamol. When the nurse removed the bandage and dressing to reveal the result I was amazed and delighted with the result. It is now three weeks since the operation and I have no pain or discomfort. My ear looks "normal" and I am really pleased. Thank you Mr Oudit.

As a result of lipoedema, my legs had become so swollen and heavy that I couldn’t get clothes to fit, simple tasks were difficult, and my overall mental and physical health was suffering. I needed help but the NHS couldn’t respond so I found Mr Oudit through BMI. At the first meeting he explained that, given the size of my legs and the UK restrictions on liposuction, this would not be a quick fix. I was looking at three to four procedures over the course of a year and intense physiotherapy after each one. It was daunting, but I knew from the outset that I was in safe hands, and I put my trust in him. I was right to do so. Mr Oudit is a caring consultant, a skilled surgeon, and a gentle, thoughtful man. I felt that he always had my best interests at heart, listening to my thoughts and concerns, and then working his magic around them. He is supported by a fabulous therapist for the post-surgery period, and a lovely admin team who personalise the process. I am so grateful for all that Mr Oudit and his team have done. Thanks to them, nine months and three operations later I have new legs, new energy, and my life back. I couldn’t be happier. Thank you.
