The localized fat is nothing more than the accumulation of excess fat in a particular region of the body (usually thighs, flanks, abdomen, back, knees, buttocks or face). It is not only an aesthetic problem, since it can also cause impaired motor skills, sleep disorders, pain, and psychosocial disorders. This accumulation of fat also constricts blood vessels, which leads to the formation of edema, resulting in swelling.
The causes of this accumulation of fat located are varied, but among them is possible to highlight the poor eating habits and sedentary lifestyles as determining factors. Moreover, genetic predisposition, smoking and the use of very tight clothing can also contribute to the accumulation of fat.
