Why is the Stomach a Problem Area?

The stomach, or abdomen or tummy, is a problem area for many due to its propensity to store fat. The insecurity that comes along with extra tummy fat is a reality for many people. Stomach fat can make us insecure about how we appear in clothes, during intimate moments, and on the beach. This insecurity can lead to anxiety, compulsive exercising, and even social withdrawal. Luckily, liposuction is an effective way to get rid of the stomach fat that even diet and exercise do not seem to affect.

Why Do We Store Fat on our Stomachs?

The stomach is a common storage place for excess fat cells for a variety of reasons. For some, it’s due to unhealthy lifestyle choices or habits that they are not willing to sacrifice. For others, it’s genetic or just their natural body shape. Commonly, people experience stubborn excess fat on the stomach following pregnancy, weight loss, or due to aging. These can be most frustrating as the individual simply wishes to have his or her “old body” back, but traditional methods are rendered ineffectual.
