There are quite a few circumstances that add to gaining weight and the accumulation of body fat. These include poor eating habits, lack of physical activity, and stress. This weight gain is always over a period of time, and never instantaneous. The same can be said for shedding weight, there are many ways to go about losing body fat, however even with the adoption of a healthy lifestyle that includes eating right and exercising regularly, you will never drop weight instantaneously, it takes effort and time.

But what do you do when your stubborn body fat refuses to go away? This is a question many adults are asking on a daily basis, no matter if you have recently lost a significant amount of weight and are trying to get rid of that last bit of belly fat, or if you have been if great shape your entire life and just trying to tone up, there always seems to be stubborn body fat that we can’t get rid of with exercise and dieting. No matter how hard you try.

There are surgical options such as liposuction or abdominoplasty (also known as a tummy tuck) that will remove pockets of body fat either by suctioning it out of your body or by surgically detaching it, in the case of a tummy tuck they will also be removing any excess skin. Both procedures may require general anesthesia, some liposuction procedures may be completed using a local or regional anesthesia.

These surgeries are considered invasive, even though they can be performed as outpatient procedures or day surgery. The recovery time is quicker for liposuction patients, usually 3-10 days before you can resume regular activities and 2-5 weeks for complete recovery. The recovery from an abdominoplasty takes on average 6 weeks.

So, what if you have stubborn body fat, but don’t want to undergo an expensive cosmetic procedure to get rid of it, are you out of luck?
