Due to the prevalence of obesity in the population, there is currently an increasing interest in various methods of body contouring.

Modern Body Contouring Technology Guards Beauty and Health

It has been shown that the number of fat cells remains constant during adulthood and that the amount of fat in adults depends mainly on changes in the accumulation of lipids in existing fat cells. Weight loss does not reduce the number of fat cells, it only changes their size. Similarly, significant weight gain leads to an increase in body fat, which is due to an increase in the volume of fat cells, not their number.

Most people struggle with fluctuations in body image, not only in adulthood. The most common methods are dieting and exercise. However, all these activities provide only temporary changes in fat cell volume and are not always successful. To achieve long-term results in controlling the amount of fat in a particular part of the body, it is necessary to reduce the number of fat cells.
