What Can Get Rid of My Stubborn Areas of Fat?

What Can Get Rid of My Stubborn Areas of Fat?

A balanced diet and regular physical activity are essential for optimal health. These habits help you lose extra pounds and maintain a healthy weight — but even if you do everything right, you might still have areas of fat that never seem to go away.

You’re not alone. People of all ages struggle with stubborn fat. Depending on your unique body composition, it might be around your hips, stomach, thighs, or elsewhere. And no matter the location, it’s frustrating.

Walter D. Gracia, MD, PA, is an experienced plastic surgeon in Fort Worth, Texas, and he offers solutions for that stubborn body fat. So if you’re tired of seeing those lingering pounds in the mirror, it’s time to learn more about your aesthetic body contouring options.

Fat reduction treatments and how they work

These days, you have effective options to get rid of stubborn body fat when diet and exercise aren’t enough. Dr. Gracia offers a range of fat reduction treatments, and some of our most popular are:


Liposuction is an aesthetic surgery that removes unwanted fat from specific areas of your body. Dr. Gracia uses a long, narrow tube called a cannula to remove fat cells and permanently eliminate them from your body.

It can be a good option for people close to their ideal weight but who struggle with stubborn fat in areas like the stomach, hips, buttocks, thighs, and upper arms.

Tummy tuck

Abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck, is a surgery designed to reshape your abdomen. Dr. Gracia makes a few small incisions in your lower abdomen and cuts away excess fat, tissue, and skin to give you a flatter belly.

Tummy tucks are one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries. They can be an excellent option for people bothered by extra fat and sagging skin around their abdomen, and they’re commonly part of mommy makeovers after pregnancy.


BodyTite is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that can eliminate stubborn fat pockets. The device uses directional radio frequency (RF) to stimulate tissue contraction and fat tissue coagulation. Treatment reduces unwanted body fat and contours your skin to give you a more toned look without more invasive cosmetic procedures.

Choosing the right body procedure for you

Ready to eliminate that stubborn fat once and for all? Schedule a personalized consultation with Dr. Gracia and our team.

Liposuction, tummy tucks, and BodyTite all reduce excess fat. Dr. Gracia performs an exam and talks with you about your goals to help you decide which method is best for you.

Some people think that fat reduction will deliver the best results, but sometimes, loose excess skin is the underlying issue. If you’ve recently lost a significant amount of weight or been pregnant, loose and sagging skin can make you look heavier than you are.

Dr. Gracia also offers skin tightening treatments, and he discusses your options with you during your consultation. Depending on your goals, he might recommend a body lift or laser skin resurfacing to tighten skin and improve its appearance.
