There’s no amount of dieting or exercise that will permanently reshape your physique. You can certainly lose weight by practicing diligence in these areas, but when your body sheds pounds, it will always do so in a totally uniform way. This means that if you have disproportionate stores of fat at your abdomen or in other areas, the only way to achieve overall balance in your physique is by undergoing a professional fat removal procedure. The good news is that there’s currently an entirely non-invasive way to strategically refine and reshape your body. With fat freezing technologies, you can permanently eliminate unwanted fat in select areas without having to undergo invasive surgery. The best way to determine whether this revolutionary treatment is right for you is by learning more and scheduling a consultation.
A Closer Look at Liposuction
Liposuction is a popular surgical treatment for removing unwanted fat. This invasive treatment is not an alternative to natural weight loss and is only recommended for people who are at their ideal body weights, or close to them. During liposuction, tiny cannulas are inserted into small incisions to suction out local, unwanted fat stores. Once the work is done, patients will have to practice diligent wound care and infection prevention until the treated area has fully healed. Given that this is an invasive treatment, it will always entail a significant amount of risk, as well as an extended period of recovery. To receive these treatments, patients have to be in good general health.
How Fat Freezing Works
With fat freezing, there’s never any need for the doctor to make an incision. This eliminates the risk of scarring, and it also eliminates the need for recovery time. In fact, most fat freezing treatments allow people to return to their regular activities immediately after their procedures are finished. Best of all, they are performed in the comfort of our office without the need for anesthesia.
Fat freezing works by reducing the temperature of targeted fat cells so that they begin to die off. This is accomplished with a modest-sized cooling device that’s placed directly on top of the skin in the treatment area. Although this device is capable of killing unwanted fat cells, it does so without causing serious damage to the overlying skin.
Why Choose Fat Freezing Over Liposuction?
There are many obvious advantages that fat freezing has over liposuction. To start, there’s no risk of dealing with any extreme aftereffects with these procedures. Moreover, there’s no risk of scarring. Once the targeted fat cells die off, these will be broken down by the body and eliminated via the normal waste removal system.
