Stubborn Fat

In cases where fat is too stubborn to leave the body, thankfully, there are non-surgical body sculpting treatments that can safely reduce fat on the body.

What Causes Stubborn Fat?

A poor diet, a lack of physical activity, and genetics can all contribute to the appearance of stubborn fat. As we get older, it can become harder and harder to lose stubborn pockets of fat. Even with proper diet and exercise, fat cells can linger in the abdomen, back, love handles, thighs, and submental area (under the chin).

It can be extremely frustrating for people who diet and exercise to see such little results and still feel negative about their bodies. Thankfully, in cases where fat is too stubborn to leave the body, there are non-surgical body contouring treatments that can safely reduce fat.

What Is Body Contouring?

Body contouring is a procedure that removes unwanted deposits of fat from specific areas of the body. Usually, these areas are resistant to exercise, but with body contouring, fat removal is more comfortable and discreet. Patients experience faster recovery and better results. With traditional liposuction, patients often feel discomfort during the procedure and experience bruising afterward. Body contouring is a non-invasive, more comfortable option, and there is significantly less downtime.

How Can Drs. De Castro and Basit Help Me?

At their practice in Hanford, California, Drs. De Castro and Basit provide SculpSure body contouring and fat reduction treatments. You can think of SculpSure as laser liposuction because this laser system melts targeted fat cells beneath the surface of the skin. Once damaged, the fat cells are removed from the body through a natural process and will not regenerate. 

SculpSure can also reduce fat cells and prevent future storage of fat in the submental area. If you have a double chin, SculpSure is a fantastic treatment option.

Drs. De Castro and Basit also provide medical weight loss services to help you improve your overall health and wellness. If you have a lot of weight to lose, but don’t know where to begin, request an appointment today.
