What is abdominal fat?
Abdominal fat is a type of fat that accumulates in the abdominal cavity and surrounds vital organs such as the liver, pancreas, and intestines. This type of fat is different from subcutaneous fat, which is found directly beneath the skin and is more visible. Abdominal fat is considered to be more harmful than subcutaneous fat, as it has been linked to a higher risk of developing several health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers.
What causes it?
Abdominal fat, or excess fat in the midsection, can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, poor diet and exercise habits, and hormonal changes. Genetics play a significant role in determining where the body stores fat, and some people may naturally store more fat in the abdominal region. Poor diet and exercise habits can also contribute to the accumulation of abdominal fat, as can hormonal changes that occur during menopause or other health conditions.
How can it be treated?
At Deemesh Oudit Plastic Surgery, we offer several plastic surgery options including liposuction, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) to help patients address stubborn abdominal fat. In some cases, a tummy tuck procedure may also be performed in conjunction with liposuction to remove excess skin and tighten the abdominal muscles for a more comprehensive result. We take a personalized approach to patient care and work closely with each patient to develop a treatment plan that meets their unique needs and goals. We are dedicated to helping you achieve a slimmer and more toned abdomen and will work with you every step of the way to ensure your satisfaction.
