Stubborn Fat- What It Is and What to Do About It

Are you close to your ideal weight, but struggling with fat pockets that don’t seem to budge? You may have stubborn fat. This unwanted fat is often diet and exercise resistant and be extremely difficult to lose on your own. If you have stubborn fat, come see us. Plastic surgery can help you remove these fat pockets and discover your ideal body. We have both surgical and nonsurgical body contouring treatments available.

What Treatment Options Should I Consider for Stubborn Fat?

Got stubborn fat? We’re ready to help you get bikini-ready. Come on in for a personalized consultation and the best treatment recommendations to achieve your goals. These treatments are top picks for shaping and sculpting the body.

  • Liposuction– Say goodbye to unwanted fat with liposuction. This surgical body contouring treatment permanently removes fat cells through small incisions using suction. It is ideal for stubborn pockets of isolated fat. The procedure takes 1-3 hours and patients can resume regular activities within 2-5 days. Results improve over the next few months as swelling dissipates.
  • Tummy Tuck– If you have fat and loose skin in the abdominal area, a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) may be right for you. This procedure removes excess skin and fat and tightens abdominal muscles. We often pair a tummy tuck with liposuction for even better results. A tummy tuck is ideal for patients with abdominal changes after pregnancy or weight loss.
  • Kybella®– For unwanted fat under the chin, ask about Kybella®. This injectable treatment uses deoxycholic acid to dissolve and break down fat cells, permanently destroying them. Most patients need a series of injections to achieve their best results. Kybella® is non-surgical and requires minimal downtime after treatment.
