Nonsurgical fat reduction or coolscultping is a method in which specialized equipment is used for controlled injury to smaller volumes of fat. You will find two kinds of devices – ultrasound or cryolipolysis. Both of them enable outpatient treatment leading to improved body contour and consistent fat reduction. If you want to get rid of excess fat, undergo cryolipolysis treatment at a reputed clinic in London.

When to undergo nonsurgical fat reduction

  • If you want to get rid of excess fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
  • If you have unwanted fat deposits on the abdomen, back, flanks or thighs.
  • If you want to achieve a well-toned shape without performing surgery.

How is nonsurgical fat reduction procedure performed?

Your surgeon may suggest you to perform any of these treatments based on your need.

Ultrasound

The surgeon will mark the areas that need to be treated. The technician will put a thin layer of gel on the skin. You do not need to take premedication. The ultrasound transducer head is now moved on the treated area. You might have to treat the same area for more than once. The entire session will last somewhere from half an hour to several hours.

Cryolipolysis

The area where fat has accumulated will be sucked up into a hand piece between two metal plates and then the area is cooled slowly. The treatment guidelines are usually an hour for each site. Talk to your surgeon in London to know if you are the right candidate for cryo lip treatment.

Suitable options

Ultrasound

A magnifying glass may focus on sunlight to set fire to paper. The paper will not burn both above and below the point of focus. Only the fat near focal point is being injured by focusing on the ultrasound energy. Your skin and tissue will remain protected. The body absorbs the damaged fat slowly. You may have to perform one or more treatments based on your need.

Cryolipolysis

The treatment helps you eliminate the excess fat with controlled frostbite. As per the research, it has been found that the fat cells freeze before your skin freezes during frostbite. Cryolipolysis works in the same manner by freezing away the fat but not your skin. The “frozen fat” dies and is then absorbed by the body over time. You may have to undergo one or more treatments based on the amount of fat that need to be eliminated.

Though the results are permanent, your body will not produce new fat cells. As such, when you gain weight, the existing fat cells begin to expand. After the fat cells are destroyed and finally removed from your body, you won’t gain weight anymore in the treated areas.

Thus, you can lessen certain risks by following valuable advice and instructions of your plastic surgeon, both before and after nonsurgical fat reduction treatment.
