fat deposits under skin
Hi, I would really like to know how to get rid of the fatty deposits just under my skin. These have formed hard lumps and the larger ones are a bit unsightly. Even after losing weight they are still there. Is there a non-surgiclal method to get rid of them? Will acupuncture work?
Any assistance in this regard would be appreciated greatly.

TD, I’m not sure exactly what it is. It sounds like it might be lipomas, but it’s difficult to say without being able to examine you. If they are lipomas, the only way to remove them will be surgery. The best would be to see your doctor and have a proper diagnosis made. Good luck.
