Journal Overview

Obesity is a prevalent problem in today’s developed world and it comes with multiple obesity-related medical conditions such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes mellitus and many others. The treatment modalities for obesity ranges from conservative options such as diet and exercise with lifestyle modifications, medical options such as appetite suppressants eg. Duromine or Panbesy, and surgical options such as liposuction or bariatric surgery. These patients will lose significant weight and improve their Body Mass Index (BMI).

However there are some people who just cannot seem to lose that stubborn fat bulge despite how much they exercise or how well they control their diet. There are also some people who used to be obese and managed to lose significant weight but their body contour is no more defined due to skin laxity and pockets of stubborn fat. Some women after giving birth, either they have difficulties losing the extra weight gained or regaining their original body contour.
