Cryolipolysis – reduction of adipose tissue

The topic of reducing body fat has been relevant since the dawn of time. We live in times when appearance is of special importance, whether we agree or not, there is a cult of the body, and following the model of the perfect figure is ubiquitous.

Thanks to easy access to information, we are inundated with a multitude of solutions for diet and exercise. Above all, it has a good effect on our health because a properly balanced diet, physical activity, especially in the open air, have a great effect on the body’s immunity and condition. As a result, a positive side effect is a beautiful figure, appropriate weight and reduction of body fat. However, there comes a time when, being consistent in the context of proper nutrition and physical activity, certain areas of our body stop responding to our expectations, stop responding to the diet and exercise used. Such areas include in particular: the abdomen, sides / waist, thighs, arms or even the chin. This is a good time to consider introducing more effective methods of reducing body fat. 

Fat reduction is associated with liposuction for many of us, i.e. a surgical body shaping procedure by suctioning excess fat tissue. There are several methods of liposuction, but they are invasive, if only because of the need for surgery, and thus anesthesia and at least a few weeks of convalescence.

Our patients often say that due to their daily duties, they cannot afford a long recovery and complete exclusion from work or homework. Therefore, they are looking for minimally invasive but effective methods of body modeling. How to choose a safe and proven, minimally invasive procedure among many solutions available on the market?

The Dr Stachura Clinic, offering only effective and proven methods in the field of aesthetic medicine, offers cryolipolysis. The treatment is a non-invasive fat reduction procedure.

Unwanted fatty tissue, persistent and difficult to remove through exercise or diet, is the most popular indication for this treatment. The best candidates for cryolipolysis are people with a body mass index (BMI) between 25 and 30. Cryolipolysis is not intended for people with obesity.

Cryolipolysis literally freezes adipose tissue with cooling applicators. Appropriately selected for a given body surface, the applicator sucks the skin and crystallizes adipose tissue without damaging the adjacent nerves and tissues. Fat cells die and are removed naturally from the body. We perform treatments on any area of the body. The most popular areas for women are: belly, sides, arms, bra line on the back, armpits, thighs, knees. On the other hand, men most often undergo cryolipolysis around the abdomen, sides and back. The chin area is particularly popular with both men and women. 

Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive procedure, therefore the regeneration time is imperceptible after the treatment. Most patients and patients resume routine daily activities immediately, although there may be slight redness or discomfort in the treatment area that usually disappears within hours or days.

After the first treatment, 20% of body fat is lost. Depending on the thickness of the adipose tissue in a given area, another treatment may be performed 4 weeks after the procedure. The final result of the treatment is obtained after about 3 months.

To enhance the effect of the treatment, it is recommended to perform drainage massages, which are performed at the Dr Stachura Clinic using a device, that has a special program adapted to lymphatic – draining massages after fat reduction treatments. Our staff selects the appropriate number of massages. 

Cryolipolysis safely freezes unwanted fatty tissue.

Many studies have shown that cryolipolysis is safe and effective with very low risk as it is a non-invasive treatment. Cryolipolysis received FDA approval for fat reduction more than 10 years ago, and since then a huge number of patients have been treated with this procedure around the world.

According to a study published in PubMed (current clinical research website), it has been proven that cryolipolysis does not lead to changes in serum lipid levels or to changes in liver test levels at any of the measured time points after surgery.

3 months after the procedure, patients and patients observe a definite improvement in the treated area. This translates into a smaller circumference of the treated area as well as modeling the figure and giving it a new, slender shape.

Cryolipolysis is a treatment for active people who consciously care about the appearance of the body. People considering the procedure first of their adventure with cryolipolysis are consulted with Dr. Kamila Stachura in order to qualify for the procedure.
