Fat Reduction: Who Is a Candidate?

Fat reduction treatments have been able to help many individuals get rid of stubborn pockets of fat, tighten their skin, provide definition, and achieve their dream bodies. These treatments are great for addressing problem areas that do not respond to diet and exercise. You may be interested to know who makes a good candidate for these treatments.

It is good to be aware of the fact that there are a variety of fat reduction treatments that are available. At PFRANKMD™ we offer a variety of non-surgical options. Each treatment has specific requirements that patients must fulfill in order to qualify for them. Here is a general idea of what makes a good candidate for most fat reduction treatments.

A Normal Body Weight

It is easy to think that body sculpting treatments are a quick fix for individuals who are overweight. However, these treatments are usually not performed on overweight individuals. They are usually performed on individuals who are at or close to a normal body weight but have pockets of fat that have proven to be resistant to exercise and change in diet.  

Good General Health

In order to get the best results from any fat reduction treatment, you must be in overall good health. When non-surgical methods are used, your body needs to be able to effectively eliminate the fat cells after they have been damaged. As a general rule, the better your health, the better results you are going to have from any medical or cosmetic treatment.

When you visit us for your initial consultation, we will discuss any health issues that you may be dealing with. If you have cardiovascular disorders, diabetes, or hypertension, you need to mention these things.  

Specific Problem Areas

Most fat reduction treatments are going to target specific areas of the body. These treatments are not weight loss tools. They are body sculpting tools. It is common to remove fat from the abdomen, arms, buttocks, thighs, knees, ankles, and neck. If you need to lose weight everywhere, it is best to use diet and exercise to get close to a normal weight before having a fat reduction treatment performed. These treatments can help you if you have leftover pockets of fat that do not respond to your efforts.
