Everything about the Types of Fat

Healthy Weight Loss means losing Fat and gaining Muscle. To plan a right treatment for Fat Reduction thorough understanding of body fat is required. There are different types of fats in our body

One is SUBCUTANEOUS FAT found directly under the skin. It’s the fat that can be pinched & felt. This fat helps in maintaining body temperature by forming a layer of insulation to slow heat loss.

Then there is VISCERAL FAT or “deep” fat. It wraps around the inner organs (stomach, liver, intestines etc.) and spells trouble for your health. Visceral fat increases your risk for diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and even dementia. The circumference of the waist is used as a simple measure to know the amount of visceral fat a person has. As per WHO (World Health Organization) waist circumference should be below 90cm (36 inches) in men & 80cm (32 inches) in women.

Another type that is seen on buttocks & thighs in women is CELLULITE. In this the skin has areas with underlying fat deposits, giving it a dimpled, lumpy appearance. A quick way to tell if you have cellulite is the pinch test: Use your index finger and your thumb and pinch the skin and look for dimpling.

To tackle these various types of fat different approaches are needed. Combination of non-surgical & safe technologies like Ion Magnum, High-intensity Focussed Ultrasound (HiFU) & Acoustic Wave can be the right solution.
