It can safely be said that most of us with active and busy lifestyles strive to eat healthily, maintain a healthy weight and take regular exercise to look and feel our best. However, in many instances, there still remains an unsightly roll of hard – to – shift fat that sits on the waist line and no matter how much effort we put in, it will not budge! Historically, areas such as these would be treated with traditional liposuction techniques. A costly procedure which demands both general anaesthetic which holds an element of risk as well as several weeks’ downtime.
Many of us don’t have the luxury of free time or indeed the inclination to recover from an invasive procedure and need a solution which will allow us to carry on with our busy schedules. So what is the solution? Dr Russo of Rejuvenation Clinic in Harley Street and Canary Wharf is an expert in the innovative Coolscuplting procedure that can offer hope. He offers the latest FDA approved technique which works by freezing the water content in the fat cells which then expand, bursting the cell, the contents of which are then absorbed and excreted by the body. The result being a loss of fat in the area treated. This is visible in most patients by four months, although some patients will see results after just a few weeks.
There are multiple advantage to this new technique. There is no need for anaesthesia, no needles or general requirement for pain medication, no down time and in many cases only one treatment is required. You sit comfortably, can work on a mobile phone or device without interfering with the coolsculpting device and can safely consume food and drink. You will also be able to go back to work the same day, following your visit to the Rejuvenation Clinic.
As with any fat removal procedure, maintaining the results is a team effort between you and Dr Russos’ expertise and it is up to you to continue the dedicated work with a healthy eating and exercise plan. Plenty of water to help flush out toxins and impurities is always recommended. While the fat that is destroyed through the Coolsculpting procedure won’t come back, there is always a possibility that the remaining fat cells could expand if you eat a high calorie diet or discontinue an active exercise regime.
Although Coolsculpting is considered non-invasive and with minimal pain, there can be some discomfort due to the pressure and freezing components of the treatment. In a minority of patients this discomfort can persist for a few weeks and therefore some pain management such as Ibuprofen may be required but Dr Russo and his team will thoroughly explain post treatment protocols with you during the initial consultation.
