Losing weight can be a rewarding experience. If you’ve set yourself a goal and see improvements, the feeling as you move further towards your target weight is unbeatable. However, it’s easy to become demotivated if you’ve reached a point where you can’t seem to lose anymore, no matter how strict your diet is and how much you exercise.

It’s even more disheartening if you’re happy with a particular area of your body, but you have a problem area, such as your tummy, that you’re fixating on and can’t seem to lose. You may believe that fat cells are equal all over your body and that when you see the number on the scales going down, that fat is being lost equally. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case.

In this blog, we’re looking into how to tackle stubborn fat. Here at Aesthetic Skin Clinic, we offer a wide range of surgical and non-surgical treatments to suit everyone, no matter where their insecurities lie and what their goals are.


What is Stubborn Fat?

Fat cells can be broken down into two categories, white and brown. Brown fat cells are often found around your back and neck and insulate you by translating calories into heat. In contrast, white fat cells are found in places such as your belly in the form of visceral fat or under the skin and are there to store fat. Unfortunately, these are the fat cells that become many people’s worst enemies when trying to lose weight, as they can make it quite tricky and sit in places where they’re probably not wanted.

This stubborn fat is difficult to lose but not impossible to get rid of. If dieting and exercise aren’t working for you, it could be that genetics or health reasons may be the cause which is where we can help. Additionally, if you’re looking for a quicker and more permanent fix to weight loss, then our fat loss treatments might also work for you.


Fat Freezing

Fat freezing, otherwise known as Cristal Cryolipolysis, is one of our most popular fat removal treatments. It specifically targets unwanted fat cells by cooling, causing a natural stimulation of apoptosis or cell death. It’s an extremely precise and specialist treatment that doesn’t damage the surrounding tissue, meaning our medical team can remove fat from small areas of your body to contour your shape.

To do so, we use the latest technology from the aerospace industry to draw up and cool the body part you wish to target safely using the eight control sensors.

Our fat freezing in Jersey and Guernsey is ideal for those looking to permanently remove small bulges of fat in order to create a slimmer, toner physique.



This is one of the oldest fat removal techniques available, and there’s no wonder it has stuck around for so many years. Our liposuction in Guernsey and Jersey is advanced, comfortable, and results-driven, which is why so many people favour it as a preferred method of stubborn fat removal. The procedure is targeted removal of fat using a cannula and vacuum and can be performed almost anywhere on the body. Often, liposuction is performed in conjunction with fat removal surgeries such as tummy tucks, as it targets small areas of the body at a time, not large fat pockets.

Although liposuction can be incredibly successful in isolation, there have been several advancements to the procedure over the years, including our Vaser Liposuction in Jersey and Guernsey. This uses the traditional cannula and vacuum method that liposuction does, but with the addition of a vaser tip that uses ultrasound to sculpt and contour the body, enhancing muscle definition and assisting in creating a toned physique.
