Effective Fat Reduction Options

by Ishat Narain

Getting your desired body shape can be challenging, especially if you want to keep up with the daily bustle of life. If your schedule is too compact to include exercise sessions for fat reduction, then Dr. Kenneth W. Sanders has remedies for you. The remedies are proven solutions for stubborn fat tissues; however, they are not quick-fix remedies to a sedentary lifestyle that causes weight gain. Read on to learn which procedure works best for you.

1. CoolScuplting

CoolSculpting is a premier fat reduction treatment for stubborn fat pockets in your body that won’t respond to weight loss exercises. CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis to remove the stubborn fat cells. A device targets fat cells and freezes them. The dead fat cells naturally break down within a few weeks, and your liver helps flush them out. The results are visible from 3 weeks; however, they depend on your eating habits. You are a good candidate for CoolSculpting if you are near your ideal body weight. Many individuals prefer CoolSculpting to liposuction due to its noninvasive nature. However, before CoolSculpting treatment, ensure you have a candid discussion with your doctor or cosmetologist to understand the side effects. Some side effects that you may experience include numbness, vacuum feeling, and sensitivity. However, reputable cosmetic centers mitigate the side effects.

2. Liposuction

A timeless weight reduction solution, however, it has many variations that make it more efficient for stubborn fat tissues. Liposuction removes fat from targeted areas of your body. During a liposuction session, a dermatologist uses anesthesia to eliminate the pain. However, during recovery, you may feel pain. To minimize post-procedure pain, take the prescribed pain relief medication, drink fluids and avoid salt.

Ideal liposuction candidates are:

  • People who are in good physical shape with stubborn fat pockets in specific body areas.
  • People who have minimal skin layers
  • People who have good muscle tone

Try other fat reduction alternatives if you have underlying health issues, are obese, or have saggy skin.

The procedures you are likely to undergo when choosing liposuction as your fat reduction treatment are laser-assisted, ultrasound, and tumescent liposuction. Each method varies significantly depending on the target area.

Liposuction risks include anesthesia complications, nerve damage, and puncture wounds. Discuss the risks before you commit to liposuction. However, the benefits are profound and long-lasting than many fat reduction techniques.

3. SculpSure treatment

Similar to CoolSculpting but uses heat to eliminate the fat cells. Heat energy from a SculpSure device ruptures the fat cells. The body’s metabolic reactions remove the fat cells in due time to impart visible results. SculpSure works best for fat pockets in the inner thighs and outer thighs. However, you are still an ideal candidate if you are near your ideal body weight and require subtle adjustments to achieve a toned physique. SculpSure has little risk, but you may experience mild side effects. Redness, mild swelling, numbness, and tingling are some post-procedure side effects. A SculpSure session takes about 25 minutes, and you can go back to your usual schedule. However, avoid wearing tight clothes that may irritate the treated area.

An active lifestyle and healthy eating help you achieve the perfect body weight. However, if a restrictive diet does not help you get rid of the stubborn fat cells, you need effective fat reduction procedures. Book an appointment with Dr.Sanders for your consultation.
