Though the term may sound cliche, “middle age spread” is now a greater concern than ever. As people age, the proportion of fat to body weight tends to increase – more so in women than in men. This weight gain can manifest as fat around the midsection, giving rise to the dreaded belly fat.
The fat that accumulates in the subcutaneous layer can be also referred to as stubborn fat deposits. Fat accumulated in the lower body (pear shaped bodies) is largely subcutaneous and can be grasped with our hand.
On the other hand, fat in the abdominal area (apple shaped bodies) is largely visceral. The accumulation of visceral fat that lies deep within the abdominal cavity has been linked to metabolic diseases and increased risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.
The good news is that these fat cells can be treated with non-surgical devices which will lead to a permanent reduction in fat cells.
