What To Do For That Junk In The Trunk

I’ve Got a Fat Butt. Do I Have to Resort to Plastic Surgery?

Absolutely not! If you’re like most women, you probably don’t like your figure very much.

That’s okay – because there’re plenty of things you can do to get your rear end back again.

First and foremost, you should probably try exercising and losing weight. Lifting weights, yoga, and running are all great ways to slim down your back end. However, if even after exercising and shedding excess pounds, you’re still left with an undesirable butt, you’ve probably got genetics to thank. Don’t worry, though – you still don’t have to resort to plastic surgery. We’ll show you the top non-invasive cosmetic procedures that will effectively and safely re-contour and slim your behind.

Going Pear Shaped

If you’ve got a fat butt, chances are you’ve got a body shaped like a pear. Pears are plagued by what’s known as “junk in the trunk.” Pears carry most of their weight on the lower hips, thighs and stomach, and perhaps most frustratingly of all, the buttocks. Though it may take longer to accumulate this kind of fat, it’s also much harder to get rid of. Why? This kind of fat is influenced by estrogen.  And estrogen makes fat. When a woman gets pregnant, estrogen spikes (which is why many women keep the weight on long after the baby is born). When a woman has a heavy period, estrogen spikes — making more fat. The good news is that this kind of fat is not as dangerous as belly fat, but it may be more unsightly, as it can become that cheesy, cellulite-type fat that is every woman’s nightmare. And while an apple cannot become a pear, with excessive weight gain, a pear may wind up transforming into an apple.

Paring Down Your Pear

So what can be done about that dreaded behind if all other methods have failed? A lot, actually!


VelaShape is an innovative body contouring procedure that safely and effectively contours, shapes and slims the body by reducing cellulite and firming problem areas. It’s so good at what it does that it’s the only FDA-cleared body contouring device on the market.

How does it work? VelaShape works by using four different components – radiofrequency, infrared light, vacuum suction and mechanical massage. The infrared light and radiofrequency energies allow VelaShape to precisely heat dermal and hypodermal tissue in the treatment area. This heating effect boosts fat cell metabolism and reduces the number and size of fat cells, thereby eliminating cellulite. At the same time, VelaShape’s mechanical massage rollers gently knead the area, increasing circulation, encouraging lymphatic drainage and eliminating fat cell byproducts and toxins. Finally, the vacuum suction technology smooths out dimples by stretching fibrous bands in the epidermis, reducing the appearance of cellulite. The end result of these high-tech applications is a significant reduction in body circumference and cellulite, and smoother, firmer skin.

Science supports VelaShape’s effects. People in clinical trials experienced an average of half an inch to a full three inches of circumferential reduction in treated areas after a series of four treatments. What’s more, their cellulite was reduced by up to 63%. Another clinical study showed that 85% of patients saw their thighs shrink up to three inches! Most people notice exciting results after just one treatment, including tighter, firmer and smoother skin. After six treatments, people see a significant reduction in cellulite, along with a few inches in circumferential reduction.


Zerona is another cutting-edge body contouring procedure that effectively removes excess fat and reduces the size of problem areas without any negative side effects. Utilizing cold laser technology, Zerona emulsifies fat, enabling clients to lose inches from their waist, hips, buttocks and thighs.

Zerona uses cold laser technology, which emulsifies fat and allows it to move to interstitial space. More specifically, the cold laser technology’s low-level laser stimulation exclusively releases the cellular contents of fat cells while leaving the capillaries and other cells within the interstitial space intact. By disrupting the cell’s membrane, the cell then releases its fat contents. Once the fat contents are released, the body’s lymphatic system absorbs it. Basically, Zerona procedures cause fat cells to shrink, resulting in a loss of inches on areas such as the waist, hips, buttocks and thighs.

Zerona treatments are so effective that most patients experience an average loss of 3.64 inches on their waist, hips, buttocks and thighs in a matter of weeks. Some patients even witness a nine inch circumferential reduction after their first series of treatments, and results can be seen in as little as fourteen days. Patients also notice significantly smoother, firmer, and more toned skin.


Thermage  is a non-surgical, non-invasive, no downtime, single treatment that is clinically proven to  tighten, firm, tone, contour and rejuvenate skin, helping to naturally restore a more youthful appearance.

Thermage works from the inside out. It transfers heat to the epidermis, which not only encourages collagen production, but also tightens existing collagen. Thermage effects this partly through radiofrequency technology, which produces electrical currents that causes collagen within the skin to contract and gradually reform. This is why most individuals experience dramatic tightening and smoothing of the skin over the six months following treatment. Since the outer layers of the skin are unaffected, there is almost no recovery time involved. The most amazing thing of all? Results from a single Thermage treatment tend to last up to ten years!

Science supports Thermage’s impressive results. In clinical trials, participants experienced significant improvement in skin tonicity and laxity. Recently published studies also show that improvements continue for at least six months after a single Thermage treatment session. Other studies show that thermal collagen changes can last several years, depending on the rate of the aging process. You’ll need only one Thermage treatment to reap all the benefits of its innovative technology. During the several months following treatment, you’ll see dramatically tighter, firmer and smoother skin. Say goodbye to flabby buttocks, and hello again to wearing skimpy lingerie and bikinis!

Words to the Wise

VelaShape, Thermage and Zerona should be combined with diet and exercise to maintain – and even enhance – results. And all these procedures can firm and smooth trouble spots, especially a fat butt that even diet and exercise can’t fix, no matter how hard you might try. As a general guide, VelaShape and Zerona are excellent at recontouring and slimming down your behind, while Thermage is more effective at toning up your buttocks and reducing the appearance of cellulite.
