A flat tummy is desired because it makes one looks more attractive. Furthermore, it also indicates health and vitality.
Deep or visceral fat, that accumulates in the abdomen, surrounds the internal organs and impose a pressure on them which subsequently affect their functions. Deep fat is associated with health issues such as diabetes, high cholesterol, cardiovascular diseases, fatty liver and infertility.
Superficial or subcutaneous fat resides under the skin and it refers to the fats that can be pinched. People typically have greater amount of superficial fats if they consume excess calories, live a sedentary lifestyle, or possess little muscle mass.
Generally, losing superficial fat helps people fit into smaller clothes while losing visceral fat improves health.
Stubborn fat is difficult to get rid of because it releases fat much slower. For most women, this can be found around the hip, butt and thighs areas. For men, it resides mainly at the lower abdomen.
Fat cells do not disappear, but rather, shrink or expand. This means that even if you had lost 10 kilograms from dieting, your fat cells have not gone away. This explains why it is so easy to gain back the fats as soon as you slack off on your exercise and diet.
With technology, we are able to remove the fat cells from the body instead of simply shrinking them. The fat cells will be forced into apoptosis, or programmed cell death, and flushed out of your body. This provides a more sustainable and effective solution.
Fat cells are frozen down to -9 °C to induce apoptosis. It is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Over the course of 3 months, fat cells will be naturally removed from the body.
