Stomach fat: causes and treatments

The stomach, or abdomen, is one of the places on our bodies that can harbour stubborn fatty deposits. Stomach fat, also known as belly fat, has a variety of factors that can cause these deposits and worsen them, including your age, your diet, and even your genetics. 

Stomach fat causes

As we age, our metabolic rate decreases, which reduces how many calories we burn in a day. If we eat more calories than we burn over an extended period of time, the excess is stored in fat cells, which can swell to six times their size, creating the fatty deposits that are a source of contention for many people.


Our expert team at PHI Clinic London can help find the stomach fat reduction treatment that’s right for you, book a no obligation consultation with one of our experienced clinicians at PHI Clinic London today.

Factors to consider before treatment

  • Diet – processed food can cause inflammation that hinders your ability to lose belly fat, these include refined sugar, white bread, and processed grains.


  • Stress – the stress hormone cortisol can cause you to overeat, and eat ‘comfort foods’ that result in weight gain. High levels of cortisol have been linked to having higher levels of visceral fat (‘deep’ fat that is stored further under the skin and can be dangerous).


  • Sleep – sleeping less than 5 hours a night can cause you to gain weight, as your body over-produces the hormone that tells you you’re hungry and under-produces the hormone that tells you when you’re full.


  • Genetics – your body shape can make it harder to naturally lose visceral fat, especially for those who are ‘apple-shaped’, with a wide torso, broad shoulders, full waist and upper back.

Stomach fat treatment options at PHI Clinic London

CoolSculpting is not to be mistaken for a fat removal treatment, but instead a fat reduction treatment. Fat freezing works by treating stubborn pockets of fat and eliminating targeted fat cells that are naturally flushed out of the body. 


Dimagra is a prescription dietary plan that kick starts ketosis with the initial course lasting 21 days followed by a 42 day maintenance plan. This treatment focuses on losing weight in a healthy and controlled way in order to prevent habits of 'Yo Yo dieting'. 


Body Ballancer is a lymphatic drainage massaging device that works to reduce signs of bloating and any 'sluggish' feeling. This body treatment can be a standalone treatment or many opt to add this onto their facial or laser treatment. 


Upon consultation we will discuss the area of concern and provide a tailored treatment plan to achieve the best results possible for you.
