Some of us, no matter how much we work out at the gym or at home, still have some problem areas of fat that just won’t disappear.

However, it won't take away the excessive skin.

Depending on your genetic code, what you're born with, no amount of dieting or exercising will make those areas that collect fat in your body will do any good.

Tummy Tuck
