Managing Weight Gain After 40: Non-Surgical Body Contouring Solutions

Posted by Dr Theva in Body.

As we age, our bodies undergo inevitable changes, often leading to weight gain, especially after reaching the age of 40. This shift can be attributed to various factors, including hormonal changes, decreased metabolism, lifestyle modifications, and genetic predispositions. Regardless of gender, individuals commonly experience alterations in body composition, leading to increased fat accumulation and changes in body shape.

Weight Gain After 40: Why Does It Happen?

Hormonal Changes and Menopause

For both men and women, aging brings about significant hormonal fluctuations.

For women, menopause leads to a decline in estrogen levels. This hormonal shift contributes significantly to weight gain, especially around the midsection. The reduction in estrogen alters the distribution of fat in the body, leading to an increase in visceral fat, which can significantly impact body shape and metabolism.

Men experience a decrease in testosterone, leading to reduced muscle mass and increased body fat.

Slower Metabolism 

Aging results in a natural decline in metabolism. Reducing the rate at which the body burns calories at rest plays a pivotal role in weight gain. Consequently, fewer calories are burned, making it easier to gain weight even with consistent dietary habits.

Loss of Lean Muscle

Both men and women experience a decrease in muscle mass as they age. This decline in lean muscle mass directly impacts metabolism, as muscles burn more calories than fat tissue. With less muscle, the body’s ability to burn calories decreases, further contributing to weight gain.

Fluctuating Hormones such as Ghrelin and Leptin

Hormones like ghrelin and leptin, responsible for signalling hunger and fullness, undergo changes with age. Ghrelin, which stimulates appetite, can increase, leading to greater feelings of hunger, while leptin, responsible for signalling satiety, might not function as efficiently, leading to overeating.

Decreased Activity Levels 

As individuals age, there’s often a decrease in overall physical activity. Lifestyle changes, busy schedules, or joint issues might reduce exercise and movement, contributing to weight gain.

Changes in Stress and Sleep Patterns

Aging often brings about changes in stress levels and sleep patterns. Elevated stress hormones can impact weight gain by promoting fat accumulation, especially around the abdomen. 

Additionally, changes in sleep patterns can disrupt hormonal balances related to hunger and satiety, leading to an increased risk of overeating and weight gain.

Non-Surgical Body Contouring: The TruBody Solution

In combating weight gain and reshaping the body after 40, non-surgical body contouring treatments have gained traction. TruBody offers two innovative technologies, TruFlex and TruSculpt, which, when combined, are designed to target stubborn fat deposits and improve body contours without invasive procedures.

TruFlex – Muscle Strengthening and Toning

This technology utilises Multi-Directional Stimulation (MDS) to target specific muscle groups, inducing muscle contractions, toning, and strengthening. It’s a non-invasive treatment suitable for men and women looking to enhance muscle tone and definition.

TruSculpt – Melt Away Stubborn Fat 

Employing radio-frequency energy, TruSculpt selectively targets and destroys fat cells in various body areas, effectively reducing fat layers and refining body contours. It’s a versatile treatment that can address specific areas of concern, offering noticeable improvements without surgery.
