Is Fat Freezing Safe and Risk Free?

Introduction: Is Fat Freezing Safe and Risk Free?

With the rise of body sculpting treatments made available in Singapore (or anywhere else in the world for a fact), an increasingly popular treatment is fat freezing. Also known as cryolipolysis, this non-surgical procedure has been gaining traction among Singaporeans seeking to improve their physical appearance without going under the knife. But is fat freezing truly safe and risk free? In this article by Wellaholic, we will explore the potential risks and benefits of this procedure to help you make an informed decision.

“The key to a healthy life is to find a balance and always trust your body; Fat Freezing can help you do just that safely and without risk.”

The exposure of your fat cells to the sub-zero temperatures helps to eliminate the fat cells and begins a process of natural removal in the body.

It is So Easy to Accumulate Fat Deposits

Occasionally it feels like regardless of what you do, just how much you exercise and work out as well as just how religiously you log every morsel of food that enters your mouth right into calorie-counting software, the body composition just does not seem to shift. Certainly, if you have actually made considerable way of life changes– and an initiative to devote to them– it’s very not likely that your journey feels entirely meaningless. Nonetheless, what regarding those stubborn fat deposits that just won’t go away? Arm, “muffin tops”, belly rolls … they can be a significant annoyance for lots of people also at or near to excellent body weight.

There are Safety Issues Regarding Liposuction

Obviously, some people will certainly inform you obtaining a liposuction will certainly solve all your issues. Nonetheless, although highly efficient when performed suitably by a knowledgeable specialist, lipo is not exactly a stroll in the park. This extremely intrusive procedure is associated with substantial downtime, feasible side effects ranging from minor to really significant, as well as considerable costs included as a result of the level of competence as well as treatment required. Besides, not everybody is comfortable with the idea of going under a blade for totally appearance-driven factors.

MOH Guidelines for Liposuction

In Singapore, for liposuction, patients who are planning to go for liposuction are usually given 7 days “cooling off” period to consider their decision. This period is mandatory for liposuction, because MOH has tightened the rules for invasive cosmetic procedures in 2011. Also, A doctor who performed a botched liposuction procedure in 2013 has been found liable for negligence in the death of his patient and ordered to pay about S$5.6 million in damages, as ruled by the Singapore High Court in Nov 2020. This shows the risks and dangers related to liposuction.

If only there was a non-surgical procedure that could dissolve fat with no downtime and also very minimal complications…..

Cryolipolysis is a Safer Alternative to Liposuction

Well, well, well, it looks like someone is considering a bit of body sculpting, hmm? And not just any body sculpting, but Cryolipolysis! What a fancy word, right? But don’t be fooled by its big, scientific-sounding name. Cryolipolysis is just a fancy way of saying “fat freezing.” And sure, some might say it’s a safer alternative to liposuction, but let’s not forget that there are still potential complications, my friend. As Healthline reports, the procedure can potentially trigger serious complications in certain people, such as those with blood disorders like cryoglobulinemia. But hey, who needs blood, right? It’s overrated. And who cares if you might potentially trigger a serious complication or two? It’s all worth it for the sake of looking good, right? So go ahead and freeze away that fat! What’s the worst that could happen?

Studies have shown that a single session of fat freezing can result in a 20-25% fat reduction in the treated area

What is Fat Freezing?

In a nutshell, cryolipolysis, or “fat freezing”, functions by exposing fat cells in the selected location of the body (e.g. stomach, flanks, thighs– or any other stubborn fat tissue deposits) to really low temperature levels. Therefore, fat cells are frozen to fatality– and also consequently eliminated by the body much like any other waste would certainly. Best of all, the surrounding tissues stay intact and undamaged, unlike after liposuction which undoubtedly promotes scarring!

There is very little pain included, either. Throughout your fat freezing treatment, the operator or therapist will use a suction cup applicator to the body part (or lump of flesh) to be treated via fat freezing. Not going to lie, it really feels a little uncommon, and also you may really feel cool while the device is in operation (it’s called freeze for a reason). There is no pain but a generally numbing feeling due to the freezing action, which numbs the treated body area to sub-zero temperatures.

At Wellaholic, we offer the traditional fat freezing machines with probes that contain two paddles. We also have our revolutionary WellaFreeze 360, which is the top-range, best-performing cryolipolysis machine. WellaFreeze 360 increase absolute fat removal by up to 19% more (in addition to the usual 14% to 28% fat reduction from each session). Also painless and no downtime; the body will naturally dispose dead fat cells. What’s special about WellaFreeze 360 is that up to 4 probes or applicators can be used concurrently at one session (as short as 30 minutes due to its efficiency and effectiveness) hence saving both time and money for the patient. 

For an easy reference, you can refer to the table below for the characteristics of cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting or fat freezing:

At Wellaholic, we observe strict safety procedures for fat freezing, and there must be a gap of at least 28 days before the same body part can undergo the same treatment again.

How is the Cryolipolysis Procedure Like? 

Cold Temperatures to Break Down Fat Cells

Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive body contouring procedure that uses cold temperatures to break down and eliminate stubborn fat cells in targeted areas of the body. During the procedure, a specially designed device is applied to the skin, which uses suction to draw the targeted area into the device and expose it to controlled cooling. This cooling process freezes the fat cells, causing them to undergo apoptosis, or cell death. Over time, the body naturally eliminates these dead cells, resulting in a reduction in the amount of fat in the treated area [1].

Procedure is Safe with No Downtime

The Cryolipolysis procedure is generally well-tolerated and does not require any anesthesia or downtime. Patients may experience some discomfort or numbness during the procedure, but this typically resolves within a few minutes. The length of the procedure will depend on the specific area being treated, but it typically takes around one hour per treatment area.

Gap of At Least 28 Days at Wellaholic

At Wellaholic, we observe strict safety procedures for fat freezing, and there must be a gap of at least 28 days before the same body part can undergo the same treatment again. Thus, you can expect to see complete outcomes at around 12 weeks Cryolipolysis treatment, so wait up until after that to decide if you need a lot more freezing job done. As a general guide, you can anticipate to lose roughly an inch per treatment– yet this certainly does differ due to aspects such as body part dealt with, your metabolic rate, how big your fat down deposits are to start with, and so forth.

Is Fat Freezing Safe and Risk-free?

As a whole, most health professionals and also researchers agree that cryolipolysis is a risk-free and efficient therapy to lower fat deposits in most locations. Over 5 million treatments have been executed world wide, with hundreds of studies, and also providing you don’t eat way too much and also put weight on, your results will certainly be long lasting.

To minimise the possibility of unforeseen outcomes, make sure you’re the best prospect for the “fat cold” procedure. Several of the criteria, for both males and females, consist of the following:

  • Being within 6-12 kg of your perfect body weight (much less is also far better). CoolSculpting is not intended to be a significant, 50 kg of weight off kind of treatment. Instead, it works best when just reasonable “spot treatment” of desired locations is called for.
  • Being usually healthy and balanced as well as not taking any kind of medications that can promote unchecked weight gain
  • Maintaining a good exercise and also nourishment programs
  • Being prepared to undertake multiple treatments to achieve ideal outcomes (those may or might not be needed).

Cryolipolysis is a safe, effective procedure that assists do away with stubborn undesirable fat in a lot of areas of the body, such as upper legs, arms, abdominal area, chin, flanks, as well as every little thing in between.

How Can I Prepare for a Fat Freezing Session?

Ah, so you’ve finally decided to freeze your fat away! Congratulations on taking the first step towards looking like a Greek god or goddess. Before your fat-freezing session, there are a few things you should do to prepare. First, eat as many donuts and cheeseburgers as possible to maximize the amount of fat you’ll be freezing. Trust me, you want to get your money’s worth. Second, bring a thick novel or an entire season of your favorite show to keep you entertained during the procedure. And finally, make sure to wear your most unflattering outfit to the session. That way, when you emerge from the clinic, everyone will be even more amazed by your stunning transformation. Jokes aside, no preparation is needed for a fat freezing session. Just make sure you are in a good and healthy state before you start your treatment.
