Fat Freezing for Weight Loss in Mohali

Cryolipolysis, commonly known as “fat freezing,” is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure designed to eliminate persistent fat deposits from the body, but it is not without its risks.

How Does It Works?

This cosmetic treatment employs cryolipolysis, a technique that entails freezing fat cells to extremely low temperatures, leading to their destruction. It primarily targets fatty bulges that prove resistant to conventional diet and exercise. These troublesome areas are typically found beneath the chin, around the thighs, abdomen, back, or upper arms. When subjected to cooling within a specialized clamp connected to a machine, the fat in these regions is damaged. Over several weeks, the body absorbs the compromised fat cells, resulting in a reduction of fat volume.

The appeal of this treatment lies in its speed, non-invasiveness, and being an alternative to surgical procedures like liposuction, which involve the extraction of fat from beneath the skin, typically under general anesthesia. However, it’s important to note that fat freezing is not suitable for everyone, particularly individuals seeking weight loss, and its effects can vary.

Are There Risks?

According to Dr. Amit Garg, a Minimal Access Bariatric & Metabolic Surgeon at Fortis Hospital in Mohali, Punjab, misconceptions may lead people to believe that non-surgical procedures are inherently safer, but this is not always the case. Like any medical procedure, there are inherent risks. One rare known side effect is the potential for frozen fat to paradoxically increase in size instead of dissolving, a condition referred to as paradoxical adipose hyperplasia. The reasons for this occurrence are not entirely clear, but it results in the unintended growth of fat cells.

Temporary side effects may include numbness, bruising, itching, and stinging.

Words of Advice

Since non-medical practitioners may offer fat-freezing procedures, it is essential to gather information and make an informed decision before pursuing treatment. Dr. Amit Garg emphasizes the importance of selecting an experienced, trustworthy provider who employs high-quality equipment and can offer sound guidance, preferably a qualified plastic surgeon. Being well-informed about the procedure’s limitations and potential risks is crucial.

This technique, marketed as CoolSculpting, is available in various clinics and spas throughout India and worldwide, with costs varying depending on the number of treatments.
