Get Rid of That Stubborn Fat Once and For All

Get Rid of That Stubborn Fat Once and For All

Do you have stubborn pockets of body fat that won’t go away, despite you following a strict workout regimen and eating a clean, healthy diet? It’s not uncommon for people to have problem areas, as fat distribution is unalterable through dieting and exercising. 

Hormones and genetics play a role in determining where you’re more likely to store fat, and these areas are more resistant to fat loss. 

Fortunately, there are ways to get rid of these annoying fat bulges, both in an invasive and noninvasive manner. Below, we asked Dr. Richard M. Levin, our expert at Lancaster Plastic Surgery, to explain what treatments and procedures he offers to his patients who want to achieve a slimmer figure.

Non-invasive ways to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat 

For patients who desire a slimmer figure but don’t want to undergo a surgical procedure, Dr. Levin recommends SculpSure®, a body contouring treatment that can reduce body fat in the treated area by 24%. He uses SculpSure to treat problem areas such as the abdomen and flanks. 

During the treatments, our staff asks you to lay down while they place a device on your skin. The device emits heat that destroys fat cells. However, it leaves the surrounding tissues unharmed, because fat cells are more sensitive to heat. 

The device also has a built-in cooling device, so you won’t experience any discomfort while our staff places the device on your problem area. The treatments last about 30 minutes, and they’re done on an outpatients basis. 

You may need to wait a few weeks to see the final results. Over the course of this period, your lymphatic system will eliminate the dead fat cells without the need for intervention. 

Surgical procedures for eliminating fat

Dr. Levin also offers liposuction, a surgical procedure in which our expert uses a tiny tube to remove fat from various problem areas. While liposuction does come with a recovery time of at least seven days, the results of the surgery are immediate. 

Dr. Levin can remove up to eight pounds of fat at a time with liposuction.
