What are the causes of weight gain?
Eating wrong –

The food you eat has a major impact on your body and can make you put on or lose weight quite easily. By eating wrong food you will accumulate a lot of fat around the hips, stomach and thighs area. Foods such as chips, ice cream, candies, cakes, pastries, cookies, red unprocessed meats in burgers or steaks and unprocessed meats found in bacon and salami can contribute to fat in the body rapidly. These food items are extremely high in calories, full of carbohydrates and lead to hip fat and weight gain.

Lack of Physical Activity -

When a person remains inactive all day long or sits in one place for most of the time, the fat derived from the food he/she eats starts getting accumulated as it fails to get turned into energy which the body can use. People who do not exercise, sit in front of the TV all day or prefer lying in bed when doing nothing often complain that it took no time for them to gain weight and accumulate hip fat and fat around stomach and thigh region along with other body parts.

Less Consumption of Water -

Another one of the common causes of fat is reduced consumption of water, allowing toxins and wastes to remain in the body for long resulting in weight gain and also help in the accumulation of fat. Drinking loads of water every day helps to eliminate toxins and wastes products thereby keeping your body weight low and fat at bay.

Improper Thyroid Functioning –

The thyroid hormone regulates the metabolism rate in the human body. When this hormone functions improperly, the body’s metabolism slows down and a person suffers from low energy and excess accumulation of body fat.

Menopause -

For women who are about to experience or are already experiencing menopause, weight gain is a natural phenomena. As the body undergoes several hormonal changes, a woman can gain weight and body fat especially in the hip and belly region.

Medical Ailments –

People who suffer from medical ailments such as knee, ankle or back pain are unable to move around much and are confined to one place all day long are most likely to add hip fat. Such people should eat healthy and try to do some hand and leg exercises while sitting in place.

Sedentary Work -

A sedentary worker is a person who sits in one place all day long to do his work and does not have much physical movement. People who have desk jobs be it of any kind which requires them to stay at one place often accumulate a lot of fat in various parts of the body.


How do I know if I am obese?
Obesity can be measured using BMI.
BMI is calculated by dividing body weight (kilograms) by height (metres) squared.
BMI= WEIGHT(KG) / HEIGHT(m)2
World Health Organisation BMI classification system for adults
BMI range (kg/m2) Classification
< 18.5 Underweight
18.5 - 24.9 Healthy weight
25 -29.9 Overweight
30 - 39.9 Obese
> 40 Morbidly obese

What are types of fat?

Our body has 2 types of fat -

Subcutaneous Fat
Subcutaneous fat is found directly under the skin. It's the fat that's measured using skin-fold calipers to estimate your total body fat.
This fat aids in the process of homeostasis, by forming a layer of insulation to slow heat loss.

Visceral Fat (Intra-abdominal fat)
Visceral fat gets deposited around the inner organs in the belly (stomach, liver, intestines, kidneys, etc.) and spells trouble for your health.
It interferes with sugar metabolism & also increases blood cholesterol level.
Visceral fat increases your risk for diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and even dementia.

What is my risk of getting diabetes or Heart disease?

As per WHO guidelines adult waist circumference cut points for risk calculation for Indians are:

Men <= 90cm (35.5")

Women <= 80cm (31.5")


What is healthy (scientific) weight loss?

Healthy weight loss consists of-

Reducing surface fat
Reducing visceral fat
Improving your muscle mass & metabolic rate

Recommended rate of scientific weight loss by WHO is 2-3 kgs/month.


How can Define Aesthetics help me to get Healthy weight loss?

We at Define Aesthetics understand the difference between obesity in India from the western world & the solutions we offer are customised for Indian population. At Define Aesthetics every individual is carefully assessed by a team of doctors & nutritionist. Then a tailor made treatment plan is formed using combination of medically proven technologies based on the individual requirements. This helps in achieving optimum results for everyone. Conventionally most clinics are offering Lipolysis alone as means of body fat reduction which reduces only surface fat. Some clinics use outdated muscle stimulators claiming to build muscles. Only at Define Aesthetics we are offer combination of scientific technologies like HIFU, Ion Magnum, radiofrequency & Acoustic wave. This combination of technology used at Define Aesthetics reduces surface & visceral fat both & improves muscle mass. This guarantees healthy weight loss for everyone.


What happens to the fat?

With the unique treatment at Define Aesthetics, fat is lysed & also converted to ATP &metabolites, hence fat is excreted by body's lymphatic & hepatic system & also burned down as the most preferred source for energy, giving safest & the permanent results.


How express are these results?

About 75% to 85% of the people will see immediate results & they appreciate results enhancing over a period of few days. 10 to 15% will see results in the week to come.


Is it SAFE?

These are both Non-invasive & safe technologies. Ion Magnum is an FDA approved revolutionary technology. It uses Nano-current & the waveforms similar to body's endogenous signals so the body accepts them well. Ultrasonic Lipolysis only targets fat cells without affecting other organs. There are absolutely NO SIDE EFFECTS


Are the results permanent?

New fat cells are not formed in body after maturity. Conventional methods of weight loss like exercise or diet only reduce size of fat cells. Many times people loose water weight which can be gained back easily. Ion Magnum reduces both surface & visceral fat & also builds muscles & improves muscle mass. This naturally increases metabolic rate which further initiates weight loss. HFU treatment permanently destroys fat cells. Less fat cells means less space for body to deposit fat. If one follows a healthy lifestyle that we advise our patients; these results are permanent.


What precautions do I have to take before, during & after treatment?

During body fat reduction treatment with us your body is going to have readily usable metabolites of fat available for its functioning. We advice avoiding alcohol, excess of fat & low glycemic index foods like rice& drinking lot of water to help your body eliminate these metabolites faster.


Study Showing Results of Non-Invasive Obesity Treatments -Dr. Sheetal Badami

A randomized controlled prospective study was conducted at dr. sheetal’s slim express located at Tain square, pune & senpati bapat road, pune.

Aim & Objectives

The aim was above study was to study & quantify the results of non-invasive obesity treatments i.e. Ion Magnum & High Foculised Ultrasound.

Background

Obesity is a multifactorial disease. It is associated with multiple complications like diabetes, hypertension, ischemic heart disease, obstructive sleep apnoea & certain cancers.

There are various studies demonstrating co-relationship of waist circumference & increased cardio-metabolic risk irrespective of BMI. Based on theses WHO has laid down cut-off criterion for waist circumference for Indian population as follows:

Males – 90 cms
Females- 80 cms

Also various studies have demonstrated reduction in cardio-metabolic risk with reduction in central obesity. So a study was conducted at Dr. Sheetal’s Slim Express clinic to assess effectiveness of non-invasive modalities of treatments for obesity namely Ion Magnum & High Foculised Ultrasound for reduction in central obesity.

Definitions-

Ion Magnum

The Ion Magnum is a device based on Nanotechnology is used to deliver Pure Analog

Multisine Waveform

This is FDA approved equipment for muscle conditioning on prescription of a Qualified Medical Practioners only.

High Foculised Ultrasound

High foculised ultrasound concentrates up to 1000 beams of ultrasound energy with extreme precision at a targeted depth in the body.

It has a triple effect on problematic areas.

Separation of adipose tissue into individual cells and the gate opening of cell membranes.
Drainage of contents of fat cells in the interstitial tissue.
Reduction of fibrous partitions between fat cells.

Materials & Methods-

50 patients, 24 males & 26 females were selected randomly of different age groups ranging from 13 years to 70 years.

The Body Mass Index (BMI) values of patients ranged from 20.3 to 43.3

For every patient 3 readings of abdominal girth were taken-

2 cm above level of umbilicus at umbilicus 2 cm below level of umbilicus

After a valid written informed consent patients were administered combination of Ion Magnum & High Foculised Ultrasound treatments ranging from 10,15,20 treatments. Patients of less than 18 years were administered only Ion Magnum treatments. Patients were advised to take healthy diet during this period, avoid intake of alcohol, avoid excessive intake of sugar, high glycemic index foods & foods high in fat content and take adequate amount of protein in diet. They were also advised to do 40-45 minutes/day of exercise during this period as recommended by WHO for maintenance of existent body weight.

At the end of completion of treatments again the measurements at above mentioned levels were taken. The sum of reduction at each level was calculated to determine the total reduction in abdominal girth.

Inclusion criterion-

People desirous to lose abdominal girth
BMI - up to 45
Age - lowest age limit was 12 years, there was no limit for the highest age limit
Controlled diabetics
Controlled Hypertensive
Controlled hypothyroidism or any other endocrinal conditions
People who have undergone surgery more than 3 months ago
People who have undergone childbirth more than 3 months ago

Exclusion criterion-

Patients with following conditions were excluded from the study-
Uncontrolled Hypothyroidism or any other endocrinal conditions
Uncontrolled Diabetes Mellitus
Uncontrolled Hypertension
Pregnancy
Liver Failure
Renal Failure
History of surgery in recent past
History of childbirth in recent past
Artificial Pacemaker
Epilepsy
Cancers
Herniation’s
Any other uncontrolled medical condition

Discussion-

Combination treatment with Ion Magnum and High Foculised Ultrasound reduces subcutaneous fat, reduces visceral fat & improves muscle mass of patients.

All patients showed significant reduction in abdominal girth which can be co-related with reduction in visceral fat & central obesity.

All patients reported improved stamina & endurance with the treatment.

There were 3 patients with Diabetes Mellitus. They reported improved sugar control, reduced dosage of medication at the end of study. One patient reported conversion from Insulin to Oral anti-diabetic medications.

There were 4 patients with deranged lipid profile who reported improvement in lipid profile.

One patient showed documented reversal of fatty liver on Ultrasonography.

Results-

The study showed that the total reduction in abdominal girth was minimum of 13 cms & maximum of 65 cms with an average of 33.28 cms.

The patients were segregated into groups of 10, 15 & 20 treatments & within each group the total reduction in abdominal girth was calculated. This showed following results.

Group Minimum reduction in abdominal girth (centimeters) Maximum reduction in abdominal girth (centimeters) Average reduction in abdominal girth (centimeters)
10 treatments 13 43 24.133
15 treatments 16 55 33.176
20 treatments 16 65 41
Total 13 65 33.28

Conclusion-

In the above conducted study at Dr. Sheetal’s Slim Express out of 50 patients, the combination of Ion Magnum & High Foculised Ultrasound treatment for fat reduction showed significant reduction in abdominal girth. There were no complications noted in the above study.

Below are two individual case studies from above patient database.
