The Advantages of Cryolipolysis
Fat Freezing is a relatively recent technique to be introduced into a cosmetic surgery practice. Cryolipolysis is most commonly used in cosmetic surgery for the purpose of reducing unwanted fat. The method can be very invasive, which means it requires an incision into the abdominal area to remove fat. In some cases, however, the fat may not even need to be removed, and is often replaced by a saline solution to prevent complications.
The fat that is removed by cryolipolysis can be anywhere from two to nine pounds in weight. In some cases, the fat is completely gone, but in other instances, the fat has been replaced with saline solution and left to reabsorb itself. Because fat freezing takes several hours and is quite invasive, this form of cosmetic surgery is usually reserved for patients who cannot wait for the procedure to take place overnight or to treat severe cases of excess abdominal fat.
Most commonly, fat freezing takes place during an abdominal consultation. During the consultation, the physician will ask about the patient’s medical history and perform an abdominal examination in order to determine the type of fat deposits present. If there is any question about whether the patient is a good candidate for fat freezing, the physician can refer the patient to a plastic surgeon who specializes in this form of cosmetic surgery.
A qualified plastic surgeon is a key factor when choosing a qualified plastic surgeon for fat freezing. A plastic surgeon with several years of experience is the best option, as he/she can perform the procedure with less risk to the patient.
The fat that will be removed by cryolipolysis will be removed from the patient’s body by using high-pressure jets of water and chemicals. This is typically done by a small, lightweight vacuum tube attached to a pump that releases the chemicals into the body, causing the fat to liquefy. Although the process takes several hours, it is usually painless, especially in comparison to more invasive methods such as liposuction. or lipo.
Fat freezing will not remove all of the fats that are present in the patient’s body, so the patient will have to maintain a healthy diet in order to avoid future complications. Some patients may have to consume special diets for up to six months following the procedure. In addition, it is possible for the patient to lose weight after the procedure, but this should be done gradually over a period of several weeks. If the patient is having a significant amount of abdominal fat, then it may take up to a year before they can return back to their normal weight.
Some patients experience weight loss during the first few months following the procedure, but this is temporary. Once the fat has been reduced, they may experience an increase in energy and lose weight. Some patients have reported that they feel less pain and have increased stamina after the procedure. Some patients experience no change in their diet at all and will resume a typical, healthy lifestyle.
While it is possible for the fat to return after the procedure, the amount of fat will be more than what was initially removed during the procedure, which is why it is usually recommended that fat freezing is used only for a small amount of fat. For larger pieces of abdominal fat, this method of cosmetic surgery is typically not recommended. However, for minor cases of fat freezing, it is still a great option for anyone who is seeking to improve the appearance of their abdominal area.
There are some risks associated with this type of surgery, including scarring and the chance that the skin will blister. While the chances of scarring are slim, they can occur and many patients find that their scarring is worse than the fat itself. If this occurs, the patient may have to seek other treatment.
Liposuction is another popular way to remove excess belly fat. Although this can be very effective at reducing the size of the abdominal area, it can be very expensive, painful and can have side effects such as an uneven appearance of the skin. Liposuction also involves using sharp-pointed instruments to separate the subcutaneous fat layers. This can cause scarring and is not a very attractive to most women. Many patients find that they need multiple procedures to achieve the same effect.
Cryolipolysis is quickly becoming a popular alternative procedure for cosmetic surgery. Although it can be more expensive than liposuction and more painful, the overall results can be much more successful, lasting up to six months to achieve desired results. Cryolipolysis has helped many patients improve the shape of their bodies. If you are considering this procedure, you should consult your surgeon regarding this procedure and discuss your goals and risks.
