Measuring Fat Reduction; Can You Trust the Data?


Assessing the efficacy of noninvasive fat removal often relies on measurements that are open to error and and awash with subjective comparisons. The integrity of photographic comparisons is often suspect, and can be misleading. With the emergence of noninvasive fat reduction technologies, there is a greater need for an open and accurate assessment of efficacy upon which the public can rely.


The results underscore a need for a highly accurate and standardized method to measure fat reduction after non-invasive treatments. Careful assessment of four previous studies that had scientific evidence of improvement, using a change in abdominal circumference, failed to conform to the predictions of an accepted mathematical model. It's time researchers and joural editors were taken to task for publication of results that are clearly outside the bounds of credibility.
