Stubborn Fat Deposits – Get Rid Of Them!

There are zones on the body where small fat deposits are particularly resistant. They just don’t want to disappear despite strict and regular workouts and a healthy diet. Philipp Triemer, MD, specialist in Aesthetic Cosmetic Medicine, explains which areas are particularly affected and how to get rid of excess fat. Small fat deposits can be extremely frustrating. “Even though it is often suggested, sport and a healthy diet are often not enough to shape the body in a targeted way,” explains Philipp Triemer. “We can work on our overall weight. In addition, sport can make certain areas look more muscular and thus more toned and defined. Both are definitely useful. But exactly where our organism breaks down the fat is something we unfortunately have little influence over.” Such stubborn deposits can be treated with cryolipolysis, i.e. with cold – without any surgical intervention. There is also a new, time-saving method. Whereas previously each body zone had to be treated individually, the new generation of CoolSculpting devices does it more effectively and in half the time. This is because “Elite” has two independent treatment arms, each of which now has flatter and C-shaped applications that conform even more closely to the body’s natural contours. This means even better tissue contact. The tissue is sucked in more evenly, which means that comparatively more fat cells can be treated. Example: fat pads on the back Sleeveless dresses with back cleavage not only put the arms in the light of the viewer, but also any rolls on the back. “Many women are already bothered by tight tops when the back fat shows as unsightly rolls. The effect is intensified by the bra, which cuts into the fat pads,” says Philipp Triemer. It’s no wonder that back fat removal is a sought-after treatment: “CoolSculpting can be used to target the area of lateral back fat and achieve a defined silhouette.” The treated fat cells are gradually broken down by the body without leaving any residue. Initial results can be seen after about six weeks, and final results then finally after about three months. Thanks to the two treatment arms at “Elite”, both sides, right and left of the back, can now be treated simultaneously. This saves the patient time and money. Example: inner thighs Fat pads on the inner thighs are often not only a visual problem, but also extremely annoying when the insides rub against each other.… weiterlesen

New Science: Why Brown Fat is Good and White Fat is Bad

I recently got a strange PR text about a body cream in my mailbox. It was claimed that the new product for belly and hips can turn white fat cells into brown ones. How is this metabolic remodeling supposed to be accomplished with creams alone, I ask myself, when even serious scientists in this field are still largely fishing in the dark. The human body is naturally endowed with two different types of adipose tissue. Brown and white. In this way it is possible for him to react to a lack of food as well as to cold. The white fatty tissue is mainly located under the skin, on the abdomen and buttocks, which is why it is also referred to as subcutaneous because of its location directly under the skin of the abdomen. It’s the fat we feel when we pinch or do sit-ups. Its task is to isolate the body from the cold and to provide the organism with energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate. When there is a high energy requirement, this ATP is obtained from lipids that we ingest with food. If we eat too much fat, it will be stored. In addition, white fat acts as a separating tissue between the organs in the abdominal cavity. Medical professionals then refer to it as visceral fat. Even liposuction cannot help against this fat. Brown fat creates warmth For a long time it was assumed that the body only has brown fat in infancy, which is extremely well supplied with blood and therefore also has the darker color. Adults shiver to keep warm. Babies still have too little muscle mass for this. They get warmth from the brown fat cells on the torso. In contrast to the white fat cells, these do not work as energy stores, but rather burn them in the cell’s own “power stations” (mitochondria) in order to then give them off directly as heat. This unique feature maintains body temperature in newborns. One also speaks of tremor-free heat generation or adaptive thermogenesis. Very little of this plurivascuolar fat tissue can be found in the adult body – under the collarbone, on the neck, in the neck and along the spine. We have only known that for a few years. In 2009, US researchers discovered it when they were looking for cancer cells using computed tomography. White turns to brown If brown fat can increase the body’s energy consumption without muscle activity, wouldn’t it also offer a new starting point for the treatment of obesity and its secondary diseases such as type 2 diabetes?… weiterlesen
