The study was conducted on 3 subjects withabdominal localized fat, 1 subject with thigh and 1 subject with calf localized fat. We practiced twokinds of pharmacopunture, which were cultivated wild ginseng and contacting Ephedra sinicapharmacopuncture. In addition, we practiced thread implantation to 20 points on musclemembrane layer. We performed these treatments once in 2 weeks, totally for 3 times. Aftertreatments, abdominal circumference and waist-hip ratio were reduced by 4.6 % and 0.13,respectively. In addition, circumferences of thigh and calf were reduced by 5.8 % and 4%. Wesupposed that this combined therapy could be useful to deal with localized fat deposit. Long-termevaluation and further studies are required to identify effect size of this therapy.
