Long time no see! Have you gain weight??? This is such a painful word. Long time no see? Talk to me like that ruining my confidence!!! Do I really gain weight? And how can I get rid of these stubborn fats? Overweight and fat deposition in many parts of body including belly, upper arms, and thighs are big problems for many people. This is a condition of subcutaneous fat deposition more than normal people, or it is called ‘obesity’. Obese people are prone to diabetes 3-5 times than others, and such condition leads to cardiac disease, hypertension, cancer, and irregular hormone functions as well.
Methods for checking the risk of obesity are as follows:
Body fat percentage
Normally, body fat deposition not depends on amount of food we eat, but it depends on calories and our metabolism. Body fat percentage is the amount of fat inside your body, and it can be easily calculated by these equations.
Men: (1.20 x BMI) + (0.23 x Age) - 16.2 = Body Fat Percentage.
Women: (1.20 x BMI) + (0.23 x Age) – 5.4 = Body Fat Percentage.
In normal adult:
Men have 15-20% of body fat.
Women have 25-30% of body fat.
Above percentage is obesity.
Women – not above 80 cm
Men – not above 90 cm
Excessive fat accumulation is not only the problems of esthetic and self-confidence but also one of the important health problems. Generally, getting rid of fat is done by weight losing. For large amount of subcutaneous fat, it can be reduced by these shortcuts:
Liposuction is a quick and immediately effective method. Before treatment, however, patients must prepare their health, and long rehabilitation is required after treatment. Thus, an additional technology is used. RFAL TM (Radio-Frequency Assisted Liposuction) is a bipolar radiofrequency of 1 MHz. An energy from radiofrequency converted to superficial heat. Temperature of treatment area will be stimulated to not over 45 °C. This method is safe, powerful, and less side effects. Destructed adipose cell will rapidly dissolve to melt fat and can be easily pulled out by small tube attached to the device. Small amount of fat may remain in your body, but it can be removed by natural process.
Cooling technology is a non-invasive, effective, and safe technology. With Cryolipolysis™ from Coolsculpting in suitable time, it will cause adipose cell freezing and defunctioning. Thus, subcutaneous layer becomes thinner and is unable to restore or regain. Similar to liposuction, this technology causes stubborn adipose cell gone for good.
HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is an ultrasound emission to targeted area. The high-intensity small points of ultrasound can penetrate to deep skin layer and subcutaneous layer to destroy adipose cells and reduce fat.
Nowadays, additional technologies are useful for fat reduction in any parts of body. However, the best method to avoid obesity and get healthy is self-monitoring weight control. Technologies may help losing adipose cells, but if you cannot control your weight by health care, inflammation reduction, exercise, or diet management, you can probably gain weight again.
