The fat that accumulates just above the pelvic bone can be difficult if not impossible to eliminate through diet and exercise. It can make women feel embarrassed and make clothes feel and look uncomfortable. Fat in this area can be caused by genetics or hormones, and can often appear following childbirth, although women of all ages may experiences unwanted and excessive fat in this area.

On occasion, women who have had a tummy tuck may have excess scar tissue and fat below the scar in the area above the pelvic area.
