What Is the Best Non-Surgical Fat Removal for 2022?

Body Lipo Lincoln

Non-surgical body contouring, also known as non-surgical fat reduction, permanently destroys fat cells. There are various non-invasive fat removal treatments that aim to reduce or remove stubborn pockets of fat without surgery. Treatment can be applied to reduce and contour different areas of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs, bottom and upper arms.

Surgical liposuction and liposculpture procedures require incisions, stitches and anaesthesia, and have a number of associated risks and complications, including:

  • Risk of coma
  • Allergic reaction to the anaesthetic
  • Damage to internal organs
  • Pulmonary oedema (fluid in the lungs)
  • Pulmonary embolism (blood clot in the lungs)
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
  • Infections that may require treatment in hospital with IV antibiotics
  • Hematomas and Seromas (pools of blood/fluids under the skin which may require surgical drains)
  • Bruising and swelling for up to six months
  • Numbness for up to eight weeks
  • Permanent nerve damage (which can cause numbness or chronic pain)
  • Uneven skin texture with noticeable bumps and dips
  • Change in skin colour (which can be permanent)
  • Non-symmetrical results (especially when treating hips, flanks, thighs and upper arms)
  • Scarring
  • Lengthy recovery times
  • Fatality (although unlikely, all procedures with general anaesthetic carry the risk of fatality).

Surgical fat removal procedures are not intended to be a weight loss solution, and it can be dangerous to remove more than eight pounds of fat. Liposuction and liposculpture are best suited to people close to their desired Body Mass Index (BMI) and have tight, elastic skin. Skin elasticity reduces as you age, making liposuction and liposculpture less suitable for people over 50. 

Both surgical and non-surgical fat removal is intended to contour areas of the body by destroying fat cells in targeted areas. 

We use several types of non-surgical fat removal techniques at Body Lipo Lincoln. The most suitable method will depend on the area of the body being treated and personal preference.

Cavitation (ultrasound) Non-Invasive Fat Removal

Cavitation fat removal utilises low-frequency ultrasound waves. The ultrasound waves transmit energy approximately three centimetres deep into the subcutaneous fat. The resulting vibrations break down the fat cells, which are then naturally dispelled from the body in your urine. During treatment, the therapist will methodically work around the overall circumference of the targeted area. The result is permanent subcutaneous fat removal (the fat you can grab with your hands) and visible inch-loss of the overall circumference in the area treated.

Cryotherapy (Fat Freeze) Non-Invasive Fat Removal

Cryotherapy uses cooling technology to reduce localised body fat. During treatment, the therapist uses a handheld vacuum device with cooling plates. This is positioned on the selected body area, which freezes the tissue to minus six degrees celsius. Because fat cells are far more susceptible to the cold than other cells, they crystallise and break down without damaging the surrounding tissue. The destroyed fat cells are absorbed and expelled by the body in urine, leaving the treated area to shrink over the following two to eight weeks.

Radiofrequency (Fat Melt) Non-Invasive Fat Removal

Fat removal using radiofrequency lipolysis uses an applicator that does not touch the skin. The radiofrequency sends energy deep into the subcutaneous fat, which heats the fat and destroys fat cells without causing damage to surrounding cells and tissue.

Skin tightening using shortwave radio frequency, also referred to as radiofrequency (RF) therapy, sends energy waves into the skin dermis to stimulate collagen production and hyaluronic acid in the targeted area. This causes the skin to tighten and become smoother and more even in appearance.

Recovery Time After Non-Surgical Fat Removal

Surgical fat removal such as liposuction and liposculpture require a period of downtime and the wearing of compression garments, which can be uncomfortable. Many people choose to have non-surgical fat removal because due to the low risk and associated complications, there is virtually no downtime. Following non-surgical fat removal treatment, patients can usually resume normal activities and return to work.

Shockwave Body Lipo Lincoln

Acoustic Therapy/Shockwave Therapy Skin Tightening Treatment

Acoustic therapy, also referred to as shockwave therapy, uses high-energy radial waves that squeeze the targeted areas to break down stubborn fat, stimulating collagen production and improving blood flow. This treatment also triggers lymphatic drainage, helping the body eliminate the destroyed fat cells and toxins for a faster result.

Power Sculpt Body Lipo Lincoln

Power Sculpt Therapy

Power Sculpt therapy uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology HIFEM®. This advanced device delivers a powerful but harmless form of electromagnetic stimulation to send electrical currents into the muscle. This causes supramaximal muscle contractions in a targeted area and contours the area of the body treated. The Power Sculpt machine builds abdominal muscles, biceps, triceps, buttocks, and thighs, and in just 30 minutes, your muscles will have completed the equivalent of twenty thousand crunches or squats. And, as this energy penetrates seven centimetres deep, the fat surrounding the muscle is also reduced, giving the muscles a more defined appearance.

Infrared Sauna Body Lipo Lincoln

Infrared Light Therapy 

Infrared light therapy is completely safe and painless, working by raising the core body temperature to encourage sweat production. As approximately 65% of the human body is water, infrared light therapy aids the release of toxins through the sweat glands. When the core temperature of the body increases, your body enters the fat-burning stage, similar to a high-intensity cardiovascular workout. The heat also stimulates collagen production and increases elastin in the skin for tighter skin and improved body contours. 

Infrared Sauna Therapy

Non-Surgical Fat Reduction will normally require multiple treatments spaced over a period of weeks to produce optimum results. This will depend on the area, the amount of fat and how quickly the body responds to treatment. Some people will only need a one-off treatment such as Cryotherapy (fat freezing) or Cavitation (ultrasound) treatment; however, it may still be beneficial to combine treatments. Many people choose to include radio frequency (skin tightening) therapy and Power Sculpt HIFEM (muscle stimulation) treatments for additional definition. For increased feelings of wellness, we highly recommend Infrared Sauna therapy, which can help to lower stress hormones and has a range of physiological benefits.

What’s The Difference between Weight Loss & Fat Loss?

When you have a weight loss goal, you probably break out the scale first. After all, it’s one of the easiest ways to measure your progress. But, there are limitations to what that number can tell you, and in many instances, it can take you down the wrong path. Namely: Weight loss and fat loss are not the same thing. We turned to an expert to break it all down.

What does weight loss mean generally?

So, the number on the scale is lower than the week before. When you see that number go down, you can’t automatically assume that it’s all fat. “Weight loss is a reduction of total body mass. When you see the number on the scale go down it could be from one or a combination of fat, muscle, and water loss.

Your body is mostly just water. “As much as 60 percent of the adult body weight is made up of water weight. The term ‘losing water weight’ just means a fluid loss in the body,”. Lots of things can cause fluid retention, like your hormones or eating a lot of salt or a higher carb meal. For each gram of carbohydrate stored in the body as glycogen, the body also stores three grams of water.

When you consume fewer calories, it’s also likely you’re also consuming fewer carbohydrates, whether that decrease is intentional (e.g., a lower carb diet) or natural (you’re eating less). During calorie restriction, your body dips into these glycogen stores for energy and releases the accompanying water. (So long water weight.)

The scale goes down as a result of losing water weight, and this accounts for much of the weight loss in the very beginning. Adding to the confusion, Water weight can fluctuate, so it can feel discouraging to see the number on the scale go up and down at different times of the day if you are not aware of the different variables and factors that can contribute to these changes. This is one reason why the scale can be a source of frustration and confusion and can be really de-motivating.

More likely, though, your long-term goal is to lose fat.

What is fat loss, then?

Weight loss can also result from fat loss (so consider fat loss under the umbrella of weight loss!). It’s tricky, though, because traditional scales can only tell you how much you weigh, and most won’t tell you if there’s been a reduction in body fat in particular. The scale simply shows your body weight, but does not specify anything beyond that. Just by looking at that number you don’t know if you’re losing water weight, fat, or muscle.

Body fat percentage, specifically, can be measured in the following ways:

  • Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA)
  • Hydrostatic Weighing
  • Bioelectric Impedance Analysis (BIA)
  • Skinfold Callipers
  • Smart scales

The DEXA scan is widely considered as one of the most accurate and comprehensive body composition tests. However, it can be expensive, and it’s usually accessible. You can also get a body composition test with callipers or use a smart scale that estimates body fat. These methods may not be as accurate, but could be a good starting place for those looking to learn more about their body composition.

Waist circumference is also another important measure, according to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). For women, having a waist circumference of more than 35 inches signals excess abdominal fat, a marker of your risk for diseases like heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

How do I lose fat, as opposed to muscle or water weight?

When you lose weight, some is from muscle loss. To preserve this lean tissue (which supports your metabolism), eat enough protein and strength train, two factors that will aid in eventual fat loss.  For sustained fat loss, being in a smallcaloriedeficit every day, along with exercise, instead of cutting out entire food groups and over-exercising, is what I would recommend for sustained fat loss,

 gradual reduction in calories to minimize muscle loss while still accomplishing fat loss. Focus on eating less fried foods, processed foods, and sugar while enjoying more fresh fruits, quality protein sources, and of course vegetables.

Fat Freeze in Lincoln

Fat Freezing the hottest trend!

There has been a lot of buzz lately about fat freezing. Freezing fat, known medically as cryolipolysis, is one of the hottest trends in non-invasive body sculpting — that is, losing pockets of fat without needles, knives, or real downtime.

The basics of Body Fat.

Let’s start with the basics. Not all fat is created equal. We have two distinct types of fat in our bodies: subcutaneous fat (the kind that may roll over the waistband of your pants) and visceral a fat (the stuff that lines your organs and is associated with diabetes and heart disease.

From here on out, when we refer to fat, we are talking about subcutaneous fat, as this is the type of fat that cryolipolysis targets. A recent study showed that the body’s ability to remove subcutaneous fat decreases with age, which means we are fighting an uphill battle.

Cryolipolysis — which literally translates into cold (cryo) fat (lipo) destruction (lysis) — was invented, in part, by observing what can happen when kids eat ice lollies. No kidding here. The cofounders of this process were intrigued by something called “cold-induced fat necrosis” that was reported to occur after young children ate ice lollies that were inadvertently left resting on the cheek for several minutes. Skin samples taken from the patients, these showed inflammation in the fat, but normal overlying skin. Thus, it appeared that fat may be more sensitive to cold injury that other tissue type

Using this concept, a cooling device was tested on pigs in 2007 to see if fat cells could be selectively destroyed. The results were promising and predictable; there was about a 15mm reduction in the pig’s fat layer, without damaging the overlying skin, in the treated areas. By 2010, the first cryolipolysis technology approved for human use, the treatment was cleared for love handles. Clearance for treating other parts of the body, including the thighs, belly, bra fat, back, underside of the buttocks, and chin soon followed.

How does cryolipolysis work?

No one knows for sure, but we think that a few days after treatment, the cooled fat cells die. Over the next several months, macrophages, part of the immune system’s clean-up crew, digest the dead fat cells.

A cool procedure

To date, there have been more than eight million fat freezing treatments performed worldwide. Unlike liposuction, which can require anaesthesia and comes with risks of bleeding or serious infection, Fat Freezing is a relatively safe in-office procedure, with minimal pain and no downtime.

The treatment itself takes 30 to 60 minutes per application, and multiple applications may be needed to cover an area.

The most common side effects of treatment include redness, bruising, swelling, tingling, numbness, or darkening of the treated area. Most of these side effects, if present, will resolve within several hours after treatment.

Results can be seen as soon as two weeks, with maximum benefit seen at approximately three months. Average reduction in fat ranges from about 10% to 40% per round of treatment, and there is no evidence of any body-wide side effects. A second round of treatment may be needed after several months, depending on the desired results.

Who’s a good candidate for fat freezing?

Cryolipolysis appears to be a safe and effective treatment for fat loss without the downtime of liposuction or surgery. But it is important to note that cryolipolysis is intended for fat loss, not weight loss. The ideal candidate has stubborn, pinchable areas of fat that are difficult to get rid of with diet and exercise. Cryolipolysis also doesn’t target visceral fat, so it won’t improve your overall health. But it may help you fit into your favourite pair of skinny jeans.
