Belly Fat Reduction in Buffalo and Albany, NY
My Lipo Spa means a flatter tummy.
The belly is one of the biggest problem areas for both men and women. Clients in New York State, who need help firming and toning their abdomen, can visit Lipo Spa, which proudly serves clients in Albany, Syracuse, Buffalo and the surrounding areas.
A good number of people find themselves needing to lose belly fat, despite being at or near their targeted weight. In fact, even those who are underweight can sometimes have a “pouch” around their midsections due to bloating or stretching of the skin during pregnancy.
Subcutaneous vs. Visceral Fat
There are two different types of fat present in the abdomen. The first is subcutaneous fat, which is found just beneath the surface of the skin. The second is visceral fat, which is fat that surrounds and protects internal organs. Visceral fat is to some degree necessary, yet the presence of too much visceral fat can lead to an increased risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.
Both types of fat must be reduced in order to truly flatten your abs. Making modifications to your diet, in the way of reducing sugars and starches can help reduce subcutaneous fat while reducing your overall body weight is needed if you are to get rid of excess visceral fat. Subcutaneous fat can also be removed through one of the non-invasive liposuction procedures offered here at Lipo Spa. However, these procedures will not eliminate excess visceral fat.
The Effect of Body Shape on Stomach Fat
Your body shape can also play a role in how you lose belly fat. For example, if your body is naturally shaped like an inverted triangle (meaning your upper body is significantly larger than your lower body), this indicates you may have more visceral fat around your stomach. It may, therefore, take you longer to lose abdominal fat than a pear-shaped person who primarily carries fat around the hips and thighs.
Since more men than women have an inverted triangle shape, you are more likely to retain weight around your abdomen if you are male rather than female. Even so, post-menopausal women may nonetheless begin to develop excess weight around the abdomen due to lower levels of estrogen in the body.
Common Causes of Belly Fat
Aside from being overweight, there are actually a number of other issues that can cause belly fat. Both men and women are subject to developing extra fat around the midsection as they age. Pregnancy can also split the linea alba muscle that runs down the center of your abdomen in half, resulting in a somewhat rounded appearance to the belly. Other causes of tummy fat can include:
- Poor posture
- A sedentary lifestyle
- Regularly consuming more than three alcoholic beverages per day
- A diet high in saturated fat and refined carbohydrates
- Hormonal changes
