Losing The Extra Handles The Safe Way!

July 29, 2022

 

What is obesity?

 

Obesity

 

It is a condition of abnormal or excessive accumulation of body fat to the extent that your health may be adversely affected.

 

Is there a difference between being obese and being overweight?

 

body mass

 

Yes! We can use the concept of a body mass index (BMI) to differentiate between these two conditions. A body mass index of ≥ 25 kg/m2 shows that you are overweight and a BMI of BMI ≥ 30 kg/m2 shows that you are obese. BMI is calculated by weight divided by height2

 

How common is this?

 

common

 

Studies have shown that among all Singapore adults in 2013, 34.3% are overweight with 40.2% of males and 28.6% of females considered overweight. The prevalence of obesity has sadly also increased from 5.5% in 1992 to 8.6% in 2013. In fact, 9.4% of males and 7.9% of females were considered obese based on local studies.

 

Why do I need to lose weight?

 

lose weight

 

Being overweight is considered as a pre-obesity state, a concept not too different from diabetes and pre-diabetes. Obesity is associated with various major chronic diseases including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, coronary artery disease and even cancer! The benefits of weight loss include a potential reduction blood pressure, a reduction in the rate of progression from impaired glucose tolerance to diabetes, and blood fat levels in higher risk patients. You may even find it beneficial if you have sleep apnea, depression, as well as see improvements in your quality of life, physical functioning, and mobility.

How to Eat More to Lose Weight and Still Be in a Calorie Deficit

 

Many people including myself have tried to lose weight for various reasons at a point in their lives. Dieting and exercising are common but potentially hard to do steps to lose weight. There are medications to lose weight for people who have failed lifestyle changes. The decision to initiate drug therapy should be individualized and made after a careful evaluation of all treatment options.

 

I don’t want medications or surgery! But I want to look good and not fat without too much effort. Is there another solution?

 

Weightloss

 

Fortunately, with the advancement of technology, we are able to offer individuals a safe and effortless solution that is approved by the United States Food and Drug administration. Vanquish Me and Vanquish Flex is an energy-based treatment which can be used for your tummy, waist and love handles!

 

It is a non-invasive device which covers large treatment spot where it can reduce the circumference of the entire abdominal area and can be adjusted for different body sizes. Its ability to treat full flank to flank body treatment will leave no unevenness or lines of demarcation.

 

It is designed to deliver energy to your body to eliminate unwanted fats cells and reduce cellulites even without touching your skin. It uses non-invasive Selective RF system / thermal energy to break down fat cells, which are then naturally flushed out by the body over time.

 

Here are some benefits of its technology:

  • Contactless technology (the device doesn’t touch your skin)
  • Covers large surface area for all body shapes
  • Delivers energy to fat without risk of overheating the skin, muscles, or internal organs.
  • Minimal to no pain or downtime
  • Short treatment time for faster results
  • Consistent and measurable results
  • Clinically tested and FDA-approved

 

While this cannot replace key lifestyle habits in ensuring you do not become obese, it is an option that we are happy to discuss with you. We can also combine it with other slimming solutions  (e.g. X-Wave, Exilis Elite) for even better and faster results.
