Menopause – Weight gained from dropping estrogen levels and the excess weight resides at the belly area.

- A problem that plagues women of all ages, sizes and weight.
- More commonly found in women with excess body fat.
- Saggy skin is a result of the skin being unable to conform to the new shape, which can be due to weight loss and smaller body mass.
- Also known as the pear-shaped figure.
- Formulation of estrogen causes higher levels of fats to be stored in a woman’s body, accumulating around the buttock, hip and thigh areas.
- When level of estrogen declines with menopause, the fat will shift upwards to become belly fats.
- Can be inherited or commonly caused by excess estrogen in the body
- Other causes: Improper food intake
- Too much estrogen results in the body storing more fats around the thighs for both men and women
