Excess fat is typically caused by a high caloric intake and poor exercise. Excess fat is stored between your skin and muscles as fat cells. Where you store this excess fat in your body largely depends on genetics.
Some causes of excess fat in Singapore may include:
Excess fat is more common in Individuals who are not active and consume more calories than they need. Many suffer from pockets of fat that are resistant to exercise as it is difficult to target fat in specific areas of the body.
Patients who are overweight will also find that they have a large area of subcutaneous fat. This can be a sign of visceral fat (fat around the organs), a type of fat that is more dangerous and can cause damage to your arteries if there is continued buildup of subcutaneous fat.
While too much subcutaneous fat can lead to health problems, many people have an average amount of excess fat that they wish to remove for aesthetic reasons.
In Singapore, excess fat can be removed through the following ways:
A liposuction procedure involves surgically removing excess fat from the body through small incisions that are made in the skin. During a liposuction procedure, a thin and flexible plastic tube is inserted into these incisions to transfer fat out of the problem areas with a vacuum. This removal of excess fat will help you look more sculpted due to reduction of fat in the more stubborn areas.
After undergoing the procedure, your skin’s elasticity will follow the new and enhanced shape of your body. Results will vary between individuals and can look natural or dramatic depending on the patient’s desired outcome and the amount of the excess fat that has been removed.
A fat grafting procedure is a type of minimally-invasive treatment for excess fat. Also known as fat injections, it is a method of transferring fat from a part of the body to another to help move excess fat to the desired areas. Fat is taken from parts of the body with excess fat tissues such as the abdomen, flank, buttocks, and knees which also helps to eliminate the excess fat in these areas. The collected fat is then processed into liquid and used in an injection to be grafted into the treatment areas. This is later used to add volume to parts of the body such as on the cheeks, breasts or the lips to make them look plump naturally.
