I'm not Pregnant, that's my Tummy Fats!

Astique Clinic | 26 Aug 2014

So you’ve been adhering to a diet programme and the results are showing. You’re fitting into smaller size dresses comfortably which is a dream come true; friends and loved ones have been lavishing praises on how amazing you look in them and quite honestly, you do feel a lot healthier. But unbeknownst to them, there is still a bane of an issue - your tummy.

As they say, the mirror doesn’t lie and as you stare at your reflection, all that effort and positive feeling soon turns sour and you are demoralised.


A tummy issue has been and still is a significant problem especially amongst women.

A tummy issue has been and still is a significant problem especially amongst women. There are several diet plans that claim to be the solution for this pestilent issue but unless it’s accompanied by a rigorous abdominal workout programme, that jelly belly is here to stay.

Just like the double chin, this unsightly and stubborn phenomenon happens even to the slimmest of women.

Another demoralising fact is that even with regular exercise, most times the problem still persists.

Fats are generally stored in 2 forms namely Subcutaneous Fat (extra layer of padding located just below the skin) and Visceral Fat (which lies deep inside your abdomen).

Calories intake, Heredity and Menopause are just some factors that affect the amount of belly fat in women.

The decreasing levels of estrogen as a woman age also influence the distribution of fats in her body.


I'm not pregnant! My tummy is just bloated from menstruation!

When a woman’s menstrual cycle ends as she goes through the perimenopause and into menopause, the decreasing estrogen level affects the redistribution of body fat from the hips, thighs and buttocks (where it used to be stored as fuel for breastfeeding) to the abdomen.

During pregnancy, the growing uterus generally stretches the stomach muscles. A condition called diastasis recti abdominis occurs where the two large parallel bands of muscles that meets in the middle of the abdomen separate, causing a bulge.

This also causes the weakening of the stomach muscles.

These are just some of the most common factors behind the appearance of stubborn belly fat.


To lipo or not to lipo? That's the scary question.

Liposuction is a common form of medical surgery that is popular and preferred amongst women who are adamant about getting rid of their excessive belly fat. This popularity and preference however do come with high risks and price. Removing large amounts of fats can lead to a dramatic loss in body fluids and sudden drop in blood pressure.

Thus it is important to get the balance right to avoid the risk of kidney complications and the way lipsuction is performed can inevitably lead to the considerable loss of blood and this increases with the volume of fats that require removing.

Aside from the risk of a punctured stomach, another major risk is clot formation or thrombosis in a vein in one of the legs. This clot can move up to the lungs and the result can be fatal.

Small pieces of fat that pass into the blood stream can also be extremely dangerous and this is the most common cause of death after liposuction.


An advance in medical technology has unveiled a new technique of removing stubborn belly fats @ Zeltiq CoolSculpting
