I completely understand where you're coming from, as such fat-pockets can be not only unsightly, but uncomfortable as well. Fortunately, there is a treatment that could help tremendously!

Smart Liposuction with body contouring can remove those areas of excess fat, while simultaneously tightening the skin in the process. This will reduce the amount of extra skin available and will remove that stubborn fat that has sunk into the pockets in your problem areas. Furthermore, that could be followed with laser skin tightening treatments for even more dramatic results. 

Consult with a professional who is familiar with these procedures.

In good health,
