Over two thirds of American men and women are overweight or have unwanted body fat. Many patients have tried everything: diet, exercise, nutritionists, some have even turned to therapy, but to no avail. The good news is there is hope for those who are unable to shed that stubborn fat.
At Scottsdale Skin Institute, we use nothing but the most innovative and cutting edge procedures, helping each and every patient reduce unwanted body fat and regain their self confidence and a sense of general well being.
Men Vs. Women
Men and women both have fatty tissue all over the body. This tissue is made of fat cells with the purpose of storing energy in the form of fat. However, body fat distribution differs from patient to patient and especially between men and women. Women generally store their fat around the buttocks and thighs, creating that all too familiar "pear-shape.” Men typically carry their excess fat around their abdomen creating that all too familiar "apple-shape".
These are the predominant patterns, but both apple and pear-shaped distribution can be found in either male or female patients.

Types Of Fat
There are generally two types of fat storage:
- Fat surrounding your organs
- Fat underneath the skin (makes up for 80 % of your body fat)
The way to get rid of the fat surrounding your organs is through proper nutrition and exercise. But once you’ve done that, what about the remaining 80 % of stubborn fat that just won’t come off? That’s where we can help with our cutting edge fat removal procedures.
At Scottsdale Skin Institute, we offer a wide variety of surgical and non-surgical procedures to help you shed that unwanted body fat, helping you work towards the sleek and toned body you’ve always wanted. We offer the following non-surgical procedures to help diminish the appearance of body fat:
In addition to the above, the Scottsdale Skin Institute is also a full service plastic surgery facility. For patients with excess body fat, they can also take advantage of the following surgical procedures, if necessary:
- Body Contouring
- Tummy Tuck
- Mommy Makeover
- Neck lift
Results And Benefits
Depending on whether you opt for a non-invasive or surgical procedure to remove your unwanted body fat, the results and recovery time can vary. With some of our non-invasive procedures such as CoolSculpting in Scottsdale and Cellupulse, there is little to no pain and absolutely no down time, with patients returning to work immediately. Patients who opt for a surgical procedure such as liposuction may have a few weeks’ recovery time. Either way, the results are spectacular with glowing patient reviews. During your private consultation our doctors will go over your goals in detail, determining the best and most effective cosmetic route for you and your individual needs.
