Cryolipolysis: Is it Safe or not?

Cryolipolysis is a safe and effective way to get you the fat reduction results you want with no surgical risk and minimal downtime. You might be surprised to learn that freezing can make fat cells go away permanently. Cryolipolysis is an FDA cleared, non-invasive fat reduction treatment using intense controlled cooling to target fat cells and trigger their natural death because fat freezes at a higher temperature than other cells. There’s no damage to your nerves or tissue.

During the procedure, we attach a cooling applicator to the targeted area. The applicator delivers vacuum pressure and cooling. As the applicator pulls, you might feel slight discomfort at first. After five to seven minutes the feeling will go away. You will not be sedated during the procedure. Each side is treated for 1-hour cycle. During that that times you can read a book or magazine, play on your phone or even take a quick nap. After the procedure you can drive yourself home or back to work. You will have no restrictions and most patients report very few or on one minor side effects. Over the next few months, the layer of pinchable fat treated will be significantly reduced on average about 20 to 25 percent. The result is a noticeable and measurable difference. Your body naturally clears the dead fat cells and most people see full results after about three months.

We can’t treat many areas of your body but it’s important to note cryolipolysis is not a treatment for obesity. Cryolipolysis is significantly less expensive than surgery or liposuction with less downtime.

Body Contouring - Get That Perfect Sculpted Look!

Not sure if there is anyone who is happy with their image - different people have different complaints. Fat thighs, fat upper arms, too thin legs, sagging breasts, pot belly, the list is just too long. While exercise and diet can be used to achieve overall fitness levels, they cannot produce the body shape that you have in mind (simulating your celebrity body part maybe). Almost all complaints revolve around the excess fat (in most cases) and about the quality of the skin.

However, there are various surgical methods which can produce results that are amazingly quick, effective, and safe.

Body contouring is usually done by removing excess fat deposits and skin from various parts of the body. The skin also gets tightened during the process, also reducing cellulite. While most women complain about thighs and hips, men complain about their stomach area. Some of the common body sculpting procedures includes:

  1. Arm lifts: With age, there is excessive fat accumulation and sagging of the upper arm, which can be corrected by removing excess fat. Contrarily, thin arms can be helped by using biceps implants.
  2. Tummy tucks: The excess skin and fat is removed from the tummy area and the muscles are tightened to produce a firmer look
  3. Thigh lift: Another common area of concern, the tone is improved by removing excess, loose skin.
  4. Pectoral implants: Can be used in men who desire muscular chests.
  5. Butt lifts and butt implants: These are used to alter the shape of the buttocks, either reducing it or firming it up.

In all these body contouring procedures, liposuction is the common technique.

Is it for you? If you are in overall good health with good thick and elastic skin, go for it. However, have realistic expectations by having a detailed discussion with the doctor. It will definitely help in fat removal, cellulite reduction, and skin tightening; however, the key is to set a common goal and work towards it. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
