The side of the body that sits in between your rib cage and the iliac bone of the hip is known as the flank or latus. Flanks treatment is referred to as a form of treatment that involves treating stubborn areas of fat which are resistant to any form of physical exercise or even diet-control. Also known as fat freezing treatment, it is an innovative way to lend you that perfect body contour by freezing off and destroying the unwanted fat that lies just below your skin by using a kind of handheld device.
Unlike fat removal surgery, fat freezing treatment is a non-surgical and non-invasive fat reduction treatment with absolutely no downtime. Commonly practised on areas like the abs, love handles, inner thighs, and back portions, this FDA approved form of treatment is widely practised by cosmetologists and plastic surgeons worldwide.
However, it is important to note that this process is not intended for those who are on the lookout of losing significant amount of weight. As the name implies, fat freezing treatment uses intensely cold temperatures to crystallize and kill the fat cells that are immediately under the surface of your skin. Therefore, in case you are suffering from conditions like cryoglobulinemia, paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria, or cold agglutinin disease, then it is best to consult the same with a plastic surgeon or dermatologic surgeon. If he advises that flanks treatment is right for you, then go ahead with it.
