Body dismorphism or abnormal distribution of fat can happen at this age and it can be partly hereditary ** Exercise ,Jogging, Bhasrika or Kapal Bharti are the best ways to reduce abdominal fat along with restricted diet. Liposuction is a relatively safe procedure for better body shape and weight loss. Tummy tuck and liposuction are one of the most frequently performed surgeries and we are the pioneers in central India since last 30 years. From a few grams to 8-10 kg of fat can be removed and patient can be sent home on the same day most of the time. It reduces the weight gives a better shape and a better self esteem. We have to assess the skin laxity and pockets of fat deposits and abdominal muscle conditions We need to examine the patient to know what is wanted and what can be done.

The obesity is females is usually Pear shaped while in males we call it Apple shaped This is because females have a broader pelvis and narrow shoulders and when the fat accumulates, it is more in the hips and thighs, leading to the classical pear shaped obesity. In males the hips are narrow with broader shoulder and main fat accumulation during obesity is around the abdomen, leading to the Apple shaped obesity. Only truncal obesity sometimes with associated hirsuitism may be a sign of Cushing syndrome due to steroid hormone excess due to any cause. Better to see an endocrinologist who may ask for Thyroid function and cortisol levels to rule out the hormonal causes of obesity.
