Losing belly fat can be difficult, especially after you have a baby or are older. You can get surgery to remove the fat, but this takes time and money, and there is always a chance of problems. Another option you have that does not require surgery is using a CryoSlimming fat-freezing treatment. Below is information on how this works so you can decide if you would like this for you.
Fat freezing uses a technique that is known as cryolipolysis. This is non-surgical and can reduce fat in your abdomen, as well as other areas, such as upper arms, chin, hips, underneath buttocks, and outer and inner thighs. This is beneficial if you have tried to exercise and diet and nothing is working. After the treatment, you will see no fat bulges but only a flat belly. You should know that if you are very obese, fat freezing would not be an option for you.
Fat Freezing Procedure
You can have this procedure done as an outpatient in a clinic or a doctor's office. When you arrive the doctor will mark out the areas where fat needs to be removed with a skin marking marker. You are fully awake during the procedure. Some doctors may take before and after pictures for you to see the difference.
The doctor uses a handheld device over the fatty areas. This freezes the fat cells that are under your skin. The doctor first applies a gel pad on the area to protect your skin. Once the fat cells are frozen, the cells are then vacuumed into the device's hollow opening. You will feel a pull or a tug when the suction is happening. You will also feel an intense cold feeling and may have a little stinging or pain. These feelings will pass after a few minutes. Once the doctor removes the applicator, they may massage the area for a few minutes to help the fat cells break down faster.
The area will feel completely numb during the process and a few minutes after. Once the procedure is finished, the doctor will wait until your skin cools down to a certain temperature. The entire procedure may take 30 minutes to an hour.
The doctor can give you much more information on using a fat-freezing treatment to remove your belly fat. If you want different areas of fat removed from your body, you will need to make more than one appointment.
