Causes of Fat in the Abdomen and Waist Area

The abdomen and waist circumference, which is open to regional stubborn adiposity, are among the most problematic areas in the human body. Waist circumference adiposity, which is common among both women and men, affects the aesthetic appearance of the body and invites various diseases.

This adiposity, which accelerates especially in women after menopause, occurs very quickly and causes deterioration of the general appearance even if the person's weight is close to ideal. The abdominal region, which is prone to weight gain, is at risk of getting fat despite regular sports and healthy eating habits. The most basic causes of lumbar fat are as follows:

Even though these are usually the cause of adiposity in the waist and abdomen, a doctor's examination is required to determine the exact cause.

Risks of Lumbar Adiposity

Waist circumference thickening, which is an aesthetic problem especially for women and men, is also a problem that indicates worsening of the general health condition. Even though a thin waist is not always a healthy and ideal body measure, the person should have a waist size suitable for their height and weight. Over time, with the advancement of biological age, the metabolic rate begins to slow down and this is effective in the occurrence of various disruptions in the digestive, circulatory and excretory systems. 

As a result, a rapid adiposity begins in the waist area, which is already prone to weight gain, and if it cannot be prevented in time, it may not be possible to eliminate it with sports or diet. In individuals who move away from the ideal waist size, the internal organs begin to work with a lower capacity and accordingly various health problems occur. Aesthetic interventions applied to remove the fat in the region both help to reorganize the physical appearance and eliminate the existing health risks. 

To Whom Waist Slimming Operations Are Applied?

Waist slimming and regional fat removal operations are generally applied to people who cannot lose their abdominal fat, even if they do not have a weight problem. Individuals with a thick waist despite their ideal body weight may prefer one of the waist thinning operations.

However, if the person has a problem of obesity as well as thickening of the waist, the excess weight should be removed first and a more comprehensive treatment should be applied for this. In addition to this, pregnant women, breastfeeding women and individuals under the age of 18 are not suitable for waist thinning operations. Apart from this, every woman or man who encounters the problem of regional adiposity can choose waist thinning methods.
