Do you need surgery for liposuction?

Non-Surgical Liposuction Miracle

In the ongoing fight of the battle of the bulge, there is one shining star in the galaxy of fat fighting. A new method that has been approved by FDA is being used all over the world to get rid of belly fat. Even the most dedicated dieters and fitness buffs deal with trying to reduce belly fat. It is a thankless task, fighting day in and day out to get that smooth stomach. Spending every day watching intake and taking pains to get that hourly workout in has resulted in legs and arms that are sculpted pylons. Many have pulled on the perfect fitting pair of jeans that make the legs and rear look smashing, only to fasten them and find the dreaded muffin top popping over. Today there are many options to help reduce belly fat, one method that is sweeping the world is popularly called fat freezing.


Cryolipolysis, now there’s a £50 word! Broken down into its components, the word is easily understood. “Cryo,” from the Greek kruos, means frost, which has been used in modern science to mean frozen at sub-zero temperatures. “Lipo,” from the Greek lipos, means fat. “Lysis,” from the Greek lusis, means loosen, to break apart. When these words are put together, cryolipolysis means to break apart fat by freezing, which is exactly what the procedure does.

Patients who undergo the procedure, whose patented name is CoolSculpting®, see a dramatic reduction in belly fat. Cryolipolysis is rapidly becoming the best way to get rid of belly fat. This new non-surgical liposuction method requires as little as one treatment to get rid of love handles. Patients need do nothing else for the procedure to be effective, no intense dieting or endless crunches, however, diet and exercise are always key in maintaining good health. But when the body plateaus, fat freezing can remove the rest of that stubborn patch of belly fat. And for those just beginning the fight, it can give one a giant head start. The treatment freezes the fat cells and then the body naturally breaks apart the destroyed fat and processes it through the liver.

The Procedure

The procedure is simple. Patients are prepped with a gel material that covers the area to be treated. Then a trained technician places a suctioning apparatus over the area to be treated. The machine sucks up the belly and freezes the area from -6° to -10° Celsius. This temperature is cold enough to destroy the fat cells but not so cold that it will cause any significant damage to other tissues such as the skin, nerves, and blood.

It is extremely important that those seeking this procedure have it done in a medical setting by trained personnel. When done in this type of setting, the procedure is perfectly safe and effective. Patients have reported seeing results in as little as 48 hours, but the typical patient will see the results of the fat removal procedure in about three weeks and dramatic improvement in one to three months. Most patients need more than one session. CoolSculpting is rapidly becoming the number one method of non-surgical fat removal. While the main area treated is the belly, some patients also have this procedure done on their thighs. For many, this has been the miracle they have been praying for; help with stubborn belly fat.

The Results

The beauty of this procedure is that unlike exercise, that only reduces the size of fat cells, this treatment destroys them. By completely removing the fat cell, the propensity for the fat to increase has also been removed. Patients could become fat again, but must create new fat cells to store the fat. The method is remarkably efficient and long lasting. As long as the patient maintains a healthy lifestyle, they may never have to deal with trying to get rid of belly fat again.

Patients report little to no side effects. There may be some red marks and bruising from the suction and some may experience what is called, “mini frostbite,” but no serious or permanent damage has been reported in patients using skilled staff with medical backgrounds, such as those at the Cosmetic Skin Care Clinic.

Other Non-Surgical Liposuction

The VelaShape II method of body sculpture uses a combination of therapies known as elōs™ that together provide amazing results. The procedure takes approximately an hour to apply infrared light with a bi-polar radio frequency followed by vacuuming and massage. The advantage of this procedure is that it can be applied to multiple areas of the body. Arms, legs, thighs, stomach and buttocks can all benefit from this treatment, reducing fat and helping the area to have a more vibrant, smooth appearance. The procedure is painless, but some may feel a slight discomfort. This procedure can also be combined with CoolSculpting.

The Advantages of Non-Surgical Liposuction

There are many advantages of having fat removal procedures done using these non-surgical procedures. First, patients are not subjected to violent and invasive traditional liposuction. In this surgery, the patient must be sedated and is unconscious. This portion of the procedure alone has an inherent risk. There can be allergic reactions to the anesthetic that can be deadly. The procedure itself is horrific. The surgeon makes an incision and using brute force shoves the liposuction tool violently and quickly around the area, tearing tissue and sucking out more than fat. The patients endure a great deal of pain and often finds themselves back in the same boat within a very short time.

Not only is the surgery violent and painful, but it is also costly. The average liposuction surgery costs £3,685, with the lowest being listed at £1,000, and the highest listed at £5,895. With some fat freezing procedures costing £450, it is clear to see how the non-surgical procedure is a much better value. When looking at these factors, one can see the clear advantage of choosing these non-invasive procedures over the traditional surgical procedures.
