Lipoplas™- Freeze & Fight Stubborn Fat
What is Lipoplas™ Fat Reduction?
Lipoplas™ Fat Reduction is a popular, non-surgical procedure that uses a handheld device to precisely freeze and destroy fat below the surface of the skin. The treatment is not intended for significant weight loss, but for treating stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Common treatment locations include the abs, love handles, back, and arms.
Is Lipoplas™ Right For Me?
Lipoplas™ is intended for body contouring, not major weight loss. Ideal candidates are men and women who exercise, eat a healthy diet, and are within 20 pounds of their ideal weight. It is not recommended for those obese or overweight.
Since Lipoplas™ uses intensely cold temperatures to crystallize and kill fat cells, you should not undergo the procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia, paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria, or cold agglutinin disease. Consult with a your Monaco nurse to determine if Lipoplas™ is right for you.
What Happens During a Lipoplas™ Procedure?
When you arrive for your procedure, a medical professional will review and mark the area(s) being treated. A protective gel pad will then be placed on the surface of the skin and excess fat will be pinched into the Lipoplas™ applicator. You should not feel pain, only some pressure and suction for the first few minutes of the treatment. After that, the target area will become numb to the cold. The treatment will last roughly 60 minutes, during which you can read, check email, watch a movie on your device, or even take a nap.
After the procedure is over, the treated area will be red, and for many, look as if there’s a “stick of butter” underneath the skin; this is the fat that’s been sucked up by the applicator. Your provider will massage the site, and the lump should dissipate quickly. As this is a no-downtime procedure, you’ll be free to continue with your regular activities right away!
How Much Fat Can I Lose After Lipoplas™?
In general, you can expect to gradually lose 20 to 30% of fat in the treated area after just one session. Most patients see noticeable results within three months, but some may see results in as early as a few weeks. There is one major exception: those who gain weight during the course of treatment. If you are serious about body contouring, you must avoid weight gain during treatment or your results will be poor.
