This 56 year old had a very localized fat collection in the abdomen and flank region. Usually in men, much of the fat is intra-abdominal. He wanted as much correction as possible to jump start his switch to a better lifestyle. Dramatic contour improvement was able to be obtained. Further improvement and maintenance of a long term outcome will require consistent exercise and a healthy diet.
