If you have stubborn fat that you can’t seem to shift but don’t want to opt for surgery, fat freezing might be just what you’re looking for.
What is fat freezing?
Fat freezing is a non-surgical fat reducing and body contouring procedure which uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat cells which are resistant to diet and exercise. The procedure is non-invasive and works by gently cooling targeted fat cells in the body to induce a natural, controlled elimination of dead fat cells, without affecting the surrounding tissue. Once treated, fat cells are gone for good, leaving a more sculpted you.
Where can it be used?
Fat freezing can be used on multiple parts of the body, including:
- Upper and lower abdomen
- Bra and back fat
- Inner and outer thighs
- Knees and calves
- Male chest
What results can I expect?
As each body is different, the procedure is tailored to your specific needs, your goals and your budget. You may require a number of sessions to enhance your results, but this will be discussed in-depth at your initial consultation.
You will be encouraged to drink plenty of water after each treatment, and to continue exercising as normal. Fat cells typically take 6 – 12 weeks to be expelled from the body, resulting in a 20% – 40% reduction of fat in the area treated. Whereas liposuction produces immediate results, fat freezing only promises a mild difference in appearance, essentially less bulge in the area treated, such as a tighter waistline or a more contoured chin.
How long does the procedure take?
A fat freezing session typically lasts for approximately 45 minutes. As there is no recovery time involved, you can fit treatments around your daily schedule.
Are there any side-effects to fat freezing?
Some patients may experience some slight numbness and/or bruising after their procedure, but this usually disappears within 7 – 10 days.
Fat freezing is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women.
