Cryolipolysis is a non-surgical method to get rid of those extra fat deposits from the body. It is specifically indicated for those persons who want subtle fat loss without any scar on the body. The procedure involves use of cold energy to reduce fat.
Cryolipolysis uses cryogenics to induce lipolysis.In simple words it involves controlled cooling (above freezing point) of the target fatty area to reduce the fat deposits and reshape body contours. The controlled cooling kills the fat tissue but does not cause any damage to the overlying skin.
The procedure is done using special devices that are directly applied to the target area without any need of injection or incision. Each session of cryolipolysis is done in about 45-60 minutes depending upon the target fatty site. The number of sessions required specifically depends upon the number of sites and amount of fat deposition.
Advantages of Cryolipolysis
- Non-invasive alternative to liposuction
- Almost negligible risk
- Cost effective
- Quick healing
- No scar
- Fat loss is subtle as compared to surgical methods
- The area from where fat is reduced remain tight
- Results are visible as early as within 48 hours of the procedure
Limitations of Cryolipolysis
Apart from the many advantages of cryolipolysis, it has a limitation too. Cryolipolysis results in only minimal to modest inch loss at the best. Moreover it also demands great efforts from the person in terms of a strict exercise and dieting regime to get results. So any individual who wish to opt for cryolipolysis must be prepared for marginal fat loss with strict routine of exercise and diet.
Advice of Caution
Some Doctors are reporting cases of patients being left burned and scarred, by some unqualified practitioners. So it is advised to every individual to visit a qualified surgeon only for these fat-loss procedures to avoid any complication.
