You aren’t alone! Conversely to how women distribute weight in their early adult years, as we near menopause, the same hormone (oestrogen – or moreso lack of it) causes weight gain abdominally.
Abdominal fat can also be related to impending diabetes, or insulin resistance which carries a more sinister, long term health problem.
Furthermore leptin, cortisol, testosterone and thyroid hormone also tend to play a role in fat distribution and gain.
However it is not just fat that contributes to excess bulk in the abdominal area. Fluid retention, bloating, herniation, diastasis recti and loose/excess skin can also add to the appearance of bulk here.
Prior to recommending any treatment, a full consultation is offered @aescendaesthetics.
