Non-Surgical Stubborn Fat Removal in Singapore

Many people aim for a slimmer waist, but losing fat can be tough. Even with diet and exercise, stubborn fat can stick around in certain parts of the body, such as the belly, making it challenging to achieve a toned abdomen. If you’re looking for ways to get rid of stubborn fat without going under the knife, there are non-surgical fat removal options for you to consider.

What is Stubborn Fat?

Stubborn fat, while not technically a medical term, is exactly as its name implies – fat that’s difficult to lose. Stubborn fat tends to be that last bit of fat that seems impossible to shed – be it around your belly (muffin top), armpits or arms.

Note: Stubborn fat should not be confused with excess fat from being overweight or obese. The latter will firstly require a dedicated diet and exercise plan, and body contouring treatments in Singapore will be useful at a later stage should the patient wish to achieve enhanced results.

Facts About Stubborn Fat That You May Not Know

  1. You have a set number of fat cells
    Research shows that once past adolescence, the number of fat cells in your body stays the same for the rest of your life. 

    When you lose “weight” or reduce your body fat through conventional means such as dieting and exercise, what really happens is the amount of fat in your fat cells is reduced. The fat cells are still there. Unless, of course, you remove them with fat busting procedures.
  2. Men and women store fat differently
    Men tend to accumulate fat in the mid-section, while women store excess fats on their hips, thighs and buttocks. While working out, people tend to concentrate on those troubled areas and neglect other parts of the body which can lead to unequal distribution of fat and muscles.

How to Remove Stubborn Fat?

Non-Surgical Fat Removal

Fotona TightSculpt

Fotona TightSculpt uses a dual-wavelength, non-invasive laser to heat adipose tissue, stimulating collagen production and reducing fat. It is effective non-surgical fat removal for body sculpting, cellulite reduction, and skin tightening.

Liposonix

Liposonix employs high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to target and destroy fat cells beneath the skin’s surface. They are commonly used for reducing fat in the abdomen and flanks.

Vanquish ME

Vanquish ME uses radiofrequency energy to heat and destroy fat cells without direct contact with the skin. It is ideal for larger body areas like the abdomen and thighs.

ReBorn

ReBorn Body Contouring is a non-invasive fat reduction and body contouring treatment. It emits specific wavelengths of LED light that penetrate the skin and heat up fat cells. This heat causes the fat cells to break down, which are then naturally metabolised by the body.

Surgical Fat Removal

Liposuction

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat deposits through suction, typically performed through small incisions. It is effective for larger volumes of fat and can be applied to various body areas, including the abdomen, thighs, and arms.

Fat Transfer

Fat transfer involves harvesting fat from one body area through liposuction and transferring it to another site for augmentation. This invasive procedure is commonly used for enhancing body contours.

How Much Does Non-Surgical Fat Removal Cost in Singapore?

Removing stubborn body fat through non-surgical methods can be empowering, but understanding the financial investment is crucial. 

In Singapore, the cost of non-surgical fat removal can vary based on the procedure chosen, the target area, and the experience of your practitioner. At SL Aesthetic Clinic, our price starts at $208 per session.

Stubborn Fat

Stubborn fat, while not technically a medical term, is generally considered as that last bit of fat you want to lose to achieve your goals. It’s often what holds you back from developing muscle definition in your abs, slimming your buttocks, or getting rid of flabby arms. Stubborn fats are, as the name implies, difficult to remove – which makes them really really annoying! People carry excess fat in various ways. Men tend to accumulate them in the mid-section, while women store excess fats on their hips, thighs and buttocks. These areas tend to be problematic. While working out, people tend to concentrate on those troubled areas and neglect other parts of the body which can lead to unequal distribution of fat and muscles. People also respond to diet and exercise in different ways. There’s always that one person who can shed fat with little effort, while others struggle to do so despite exercising and eating healthily. Don’t you just hate those guys who have it easy?
