Here at Aesthetic Skin Clinic, we’re all about body positivity and making aesthetic and cosmetic treatment decisions based on what you want for yourself. These choices shouldn’t be influenced by anyone else, so if you have concerns about your body and want to address them with our help, we’re here for you.
We have had the opportunity to treat countless patients over the years for a number of body concerns, including fat loss. Many people have personal issues with their weight and feel that losing weight would make them more confident.
But did you know losing fat can not only help you feel better about yourself but also help you live longer?
Obesity and the Link With Early Death
Obesity is a medical condition characterised by excessive accumulation of body fat that can have serious health consequences. The condition is generally diagnosed by measuring an individual’s body mass index (BMI), which measures body fat based on height and weight.
It’s linked to several health problems, such as:
- Type 2 diabetes
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Certain types of cancer
Therefore, in turn, obesity can lead to a reduced life expectancy due to the negative impact that obesity has on the body, including changes in metabolism, inflammation, and hormonal imbalances. Of course, the risk of early death increases with the severity and duration of obesity.
The good news is that obesity can be preventable and treatable. Lifestyle changes like a healthy diet and regular exercise can help prevent obesity and reduce the risk of related health problems. Additionally, medical treatments, such as fat loss treatments, can be effective.
Why Is Losing Fat Important for Your Health?
Of course, there is an extensive list of benefits to losing fat and many reasons why it’s important for health reasons; let’s take a look.
- Improved mobility. Because losing weight relieves joint pressure, you can expect your mobility to improve as a result. This not only makes exercise easier, meaning you can healthily lose more weight, but it will undoubtedly make you feel better in yourself, knowing you can move around more easily.
- Reduced risk of certain cancers. Obesity increases the risk of developing several cancers, such as breast cancer (particularly in women past menopause) and endometrial cancer. Therefore, losing weight reduces the risk of these cancers.
- Boosts energy. Losing weight has been linked to improved sleep, which, in turn, boosts your energy and makes you feel more energised.
- Improves heart health. When you lose fat, you reduce the pressure on your arteries, meaning your heart is much healthier, and blood can pump around your body much easier.
- Helps regulate blood sugar. Obesity can lead to the inflammation of insulin, which helps regulate blood sugar levels. Therefore, fat loss can help your body regulate blood sugar levels better and reduces your chances of developing diabetes.
How to Lose Fat in a Healthy Way?
If you’re concerned about your weight and its negative effects on your health, there are various methods of getting in shape and losing fat in a healthy way.
Getting a hold on your diet is one of the most important factors to consider when losing fat. For example, it’s crucial to understand that a healthy diet doesn’t equal less food. In fact, you should never skip a meal, especially breakfast, as your body needs healthy fuel to function. Eating healthily and regularly ensures you give your body the right nutrients, which allow it to break down fat and, in turn, means you don’t end up snacking on unhealthy foods because you’re hungry in-between meals.
Staying active is also vital for losing fat, as nobody has ever lost weight by sitting still! Whether you get outside and go for a walk in the fresh air or you prefer to get sweaty in the gym, get your heart pumping regularly to see results.
Fat Loss Treatments at Aesthetic Skin Clinic
Of course, if you’re struggling with your weight and are concerned about your life expectancy, we have several fat loss treatments designed to help you get where you need to be. We understand that each patient and their bodies are completely unique, which is why we offer a range of procedures and tailor each treatment to the patient.
Our fat freezing treatment, also known as cryolipolysis, is a non-surgical fat-reduction procedure that uses controlled cooling to target and destroy fat cells. The process is based on the principle that fat cells are more susceptible to damage from cold temperatures than surrounding tissue. During treatment, a device is placed on the target area of the body, such as the abdomen or thighs, and the skin is cooled to a temperature just above freezing. The cooling is applied for a fixed period of time, typically around 35-60 minutes. The targeted fat cells freeze and die, and the body then naturally eliminates them over the following weeks and months.
Here at Aesthetic Skin Clinic, we offer:
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure that removes unwanted fat from various parts of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, arms, and buttocks, for example. Our award-winning surgeons will use a thin tube called a cannula to suction out fat cells from the targeted area during the procedure.
Despite popular belief, it is not a weight-loss procedure and is not recommended for people who are significantly overweight or have poor skin elasticity. Instead, liposuction aims to improve body contour and reduce stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. We offer:
