Weight loss and Obesity

What Causes Unintentional Weight Gain?

Unintentional weight gain occurs when you put on weight without increasing your consumption of food or liquid and without decreasing your activity. It’s often due to fluid retention, abnormal growths, constipation, or pregnancy. Unintentional weight gain can be periodic, continuous, or rapid.
Periodic unintentional weight gain includes regular fluctuations in weight. One example of unintentional weight gain is experienced during a woman’s menstrual cycle. Periodic, but longer-term unintentional weight gain is often the result of pregnancy, which lasts 9 months.
Rapid unintentional weight gain may be due to medication side effects. Many cases of unintentional weight gain are harmless. But some symptoms experienced along with rapid weight gain may signal a medical emergency.

What is Obesity?

Obesity is excess deposition of body fat to the extent that it may have an adverse effect on health.

How do I know if I am obese?

  • Obesity can be measured using BMI.
  • BMI is calculated by dividing body weight (kilograms) by height (metres) squared.
  • BMI= WEIGHT(KG) / HEIGHT(m)2
  • World Health Organisation BMI classification system for adults
BMI range (kg/m2) Classification
< 18.5 Underweight
18.5 - 24.9 Healthy weight
25 -29.9 Overweight
30 - 39.9 Obese
> 40 Morbidly obese

What are types of fat?

Our body has 2 types of fat -
weight loss management

Subcutaneous Fat

Subcutaneous fat is found directly under the skin. It's the fat that's measured using skin-fold calipers to estimate your total body fat. This fat aids in the process of homeostasis, by forming a layer of insulation to slow heat loss.

Visceral Fat (Intra-abdominal fat)

Visceral fat gets deposited around the inner organs like belly fat (stomach, liver, intestines, kidneys, etc.) and spells trouble for your health. It interferes with sugar metabolism & also increases blood cholesterol level. Visceral fat increases your risk for diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and even dementia.

What is my risk of getting diabetes or Heart disease?

As per WHO guidelines adult waist circumference cut points for risk calculation for Indians are: Mens<=90cm & Women<=80cm.

How can Define Aesthetics help me to get Healthy weight loss?

We at Define Aesthetics understand the difference between obesity in India from the western world & the solutions we offer are customised for Indian population.

At Define Aesthetics every individual is carefully assessed by a team of doctors & nutritionist. Then a tailor made treatment plan is formed using combination of medically proven technologies based on the individual requirements. This helps in achieving optimum results for everyone.

Conventionally most clinics are offering Lipolysis alone as means of body fat reduction which reduces only surface fat. Some clinics use outdated muscle stimulators claiming to build muscles. Only at Define Aesthetics we are offer combination of scientific technologies like HIFU, Ion Magnum, radiofrequency & Acoustic wave.

This combination of technology used at Define Aesthetics reduces surface & visceral fat both & improves muscle mass. This guarantees healthy weight loss for everyone.

What happens to the fat?

With the unique treatment at Define Aesthetics, fat is lysed & also converted to ATP &metabolites, hence fat is excreted by body’s lymphatic & hepatic system & also burned down as the most preferred source for energy, giving safest & the permanent results.

How express are these results?

About 75% to 85% of the people will see immediate results & they appreciate results enhancing over a period of few days. 10 to 15% will see results in the week to come.

Is it SAFE?

These are both Non-invasive & safe technologies. Ion Magnum is an FDA approved revolutionary technology. It uses Nano-current & the waveforms similar to body's endogenous signals so the body accepts them well. Ultrasonic Lipolysis only targets fat cells without affecting other organs. There are absolutely NO SIDE EFFECTS.

Are the results permanent?

New fat cells are not formed in body after maturity. Conventional methods of weight loss like exercise or diet only reduce size of fat cells. Many times people loose water weight which can be gained back easily. Ion Magnum reduces both surface & visceral fat & also builds muscles & improves muscle mass. This naturally increases metabolic rate which further initiates weight loss. HIFU treatment permanently destroys fat cells. Less fat cells means less space for body to deposit fat. If one follows a healthy lifestyle that we advise our patients; these results are permanent.

What precautions do I have to take before, during & after treatment?

During body fat reduction treatment with us your body is going to have readily usable metabolites of fat available for its functioning. We advice avoiding alcohol, excess of fat & low glycemic index foods like rice& drinking lot of water to help your body eliminate these metabolites faster.

What causes unintentional weight gain?

Pregnancy

The most common cause of unintentional weight gain is pregnancy. But many women do intentionally eat more to support the growth of the baby. During pregnancy, most women put on weight as the baby grows. This extra weight consists of the baby, placenta, amniotic fluid, increased blood supply, and an enlarging uterus.

Hormonal changes

Between the ages of 45 and 55, women enter a stage called menopause. During a woman’s reproductive years, estrogen — the hormone responsible for menstruation and ovulation — begins to decline. Once menopause occurs, estrogen is too low to induce menstruation.

A decrease in estrogen can cause women in menopause to experience weight gain around the abdominal region and the hips. Aside from the hormonal changes of menopause, women diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may also experience weight gain.

Hormonal changes in your middle years can also cause your metabolism to slow down, leading to weight gain.

Other medical conditions affecting hormone levels can cause weight gain in both sexes. These include:

Hypothyroidism

Cushing's syndrome

increased cortisol (stress hormone) production

Menstruation

Periodic weight gain is often due to the menstrual cycle. Women may experience water retention and bloating around the time of their period. Changing levels in estrogen and progesterone may cause gain weight. Normally, this is a weight increase of a few pounds.

This type of weight gain subsides when the menstrual period ends for the month. It often reappears the next month when the menstrual period starts again, and sometimes during ovulation.

Fluid retention

Unexplained rapid weight gain may be the result of fluid retention. Fluid retention, also known as edema, can cause your limbs, hands, feet, face, or abdomen to look swollen. People with heart failure, kidney disease, or those taking certain medications may experience this type of weight gain.

You should always report rapid weight gain and fluid retention to your doctor, even if no other symptoms are present.

Medications

Unintentional weight gain can be due to certain medications, including:

corticosteroids

antidepressants

antipsychotic medications

birth control pills

What are the symptoms of unintentional weight gain?

Depending on the cause, symptoms of unintentional weight gain can differ from person to person. Symptoms associated with this type of weight gain include abdominal discomfort or pain and bloating.

You can also experience visible swelling in the abdomen and other areas of the body, or the extremities (arms, legs, feet, or hands).

You should see a doctor immediately if you experience the following symptoms:

fever

skin sensitivity

shortness of breath

difficulty breathing

swollen feet

heart palpitations

sweating

changes in vision

rapid weight gain

When these symptoms accompany unintentional weight gain, they can sometimes signal a serious condition.

How is unintentional weight gain diagnosed?

Your doctor will ask several questions about your symptoms, lifestyle, and medical history. Your doctor also may take a blood sample to check hormone levels, kidney function, and other health markers that can show medical problems.

An imaging test like an ultrasound, X-ray, MRI, or CT scan may be necessary.

Treatment Option

There are several ways to treat unintentional weight gain. The best method of treatment depends on the cause of your unintentional weight gain.

If a hormonal imbalance is the cause, your doctor may prescribe medication to balance your hormone levels. The medication will depend on what hormones are affected. These medications are often used long-term.

If medication is the cause of the problem, your doctor will recommend alternative treatments.
