Belly Fat / Apron Flap

Many people come to accept that gaining a little weight is just another thing to expect from getting older. Whilst ageing can be a factor in developing belly fat, the other main contributors include how many calories you eat per day compared to the amount that gets burned off. The body requires a certain amount of energy / calories to be consumed each day in order to function efficiently. Although there is a well-known generic figure for men (2500) and for women (2000), it is likely that this number varies slightly for different people, based on their height and daily activity levels. The theory is that if you eat too much and exercise too little, you will gain weight.

Ageing plays its part in the development of belly fat for women as hormones levels (particularly oestrogen) fluctuate and eventually decline. This time of life sees body fat shift more to the abdomen, causing belly fat to appear, even if overall body weight stays the same.

A common concern associated with belly fat is the addition of an ‘apron flap’. This condition appears as a fold of skin or fat roll at the lower abdomen that hangs down. Both men and women can be affected by an apron flap (also known as pannus stomach), and is caused by both weight gain and weight loss. Women may find this concern appears after childbirth, especially if they have had a caesarian section, due to weight gain and expanding organs.

Coolsculpting, Vanquish fat reduction and Exilis Elite are the treatments available at Light Touch Clinic for effective reduction of body fat and skin tightening. A personalised approach will be taken by the team at Light Touch, recommending the most suitable treatment for you. Fat cells can be destroyed and removed from the body for an improved contouring of the abdomen.
