Stubborn Fat: Understanding, Causes, and Treatments

Deemesh Oudit - Manchester Plastic Surgery

1. What is Stubborn Fat?

Stubborn fat refers to fat deposits that persist despite a healthy diet and regular exercise. These persistent pockets of fat are often immune to even the most disciplined lifestyle changes and can be a source of frustration for many individuals. Unlike visceral fat, which surrounds organs and can be reduced through diet and exercise, stubborn fat is typically subcutaneous, sitting just under the skin in areas like the abdomen, thighs, hips, and arms.

2. What Causes Stubborn Fat?

Several factors contribute to the development of stubborn fat. Genetics play a significant role, as they can determine where your body tends to store excess fat. Hormonal imbalances, particularly those involving insulin, cortisol, estrogen, and testosterone, can also affect fat distribution and retention.

Age is another contributor, as metabolic rate tends to slow down with age, making it harder to lose fat through diet and exercise alone. Additionally, lifestyle factors such as stress, lack of sleep, and poor diet can lead to increased fat storage and difficulty losing weight.

3. How to Treat Stubborn Fat

Treating stubborn fat effectively often involves specialized cosmetic procedures, particularly when diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes are not sufficient. Dr. Deemesh Oudit offers a range of advanced treatments tailored to target and reduce stubborn fat, ensuring results that align with your aesthetic goals. Here are the key treatments available at our clinic:

  • VASER Liposuction: A minimally invasive technique that uses ultrasound technology to break down fat cells before removal. This method is precise and effective for sculpting and contouring the body.

  • Liposuction: Traditional liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat deposits, improving body contours and proportions. It’s particularly effective for stubborn fat that is resistant to diet and exercise.

  • Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty): Ideal for individuals who have excess skin and fat around the abdominal area. This procedure tightens and reshapes the abdominal region, creating a more toned and slender appearance.

  • Mommy Makeover (Mummy Makeover): A comprehensive approach that may include a combination of liposuction, tummy tuck, and other procedures to address the changes in the body post-pregnancy.

  • Body Shaping: Utilizing a combination of techniques, body shaping procedures are designed to remove stubborn fat deposits and enhance the overall contour of the body.

Each treatment is customized to the patient’s specific needs and goals, ensuring optimal results. Dr. Oudit’s expertise in these procedures guarantees a high standard of care and aesthetic excellence.

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.
