It can be an intensely frustrating situation; you have spent a great deal of time and effort to slim your shape down, only to discover that it is sometimes harder than anticipated to lose excess fat.
While many people are concerned about excess fat in relation to their appearance, there are some genuine health risks associated with having a few more fat cells. Indeed, certain types of fat (specifically visceral fat) pose a greater concern than other types of fat, and, unfortunately, they are often the hardest to get rid of with diet and exercise alone! Although the majority of people have an excess of subcutaneous fat, this often poses its own challenges to remove without a bit of help.
So, if you want to rejuvenate your physique and improve your health, what are your options? Luckily, there are a few; in cosmetic surgery today, you are able to get rid of excess fat cells without too much difficulty and in hardly any time at all!

But before you book an appointment with our team, you are likely to have some questions. Here, our team answers your top 5 queries about CoolSculpting in Buckinghamshire.
Which type of fat does this procedure remove?
CoolSculpting in Buckinghamshire targets subcutaneous fat; these are fat cells just underneath the skin that result in concerns like bingo wings or muffin tops.
Generally, the majority of body fat is subcutaneous; visceral fat is not treated with this procedure and is not visible, as it is located around organs.
Are there any areas of the body that this treatment is especially suitable for?
Yes, there are.
This treatment is very expeditious for removing fat from the abdomen, waist, thighs, back, arms, and chin.
How much fat can this procedure remove?
While this procedure can remove up to 25% of body fat, it should not be considered as a weight-loss treatment.
Indeed, if you want to lose more than this amount of body fat, it is important to consult with a registered health professional to discuss a safe and gradual way to accomplish this.
Will my skin become loose after this procedure?
No, it won’t.
Unlike previous examples of fat removal, such as liposuction, this process stimulates your body’s natural lymphatic removal process, meaning that the optimum results can take a few weeks. Due to this, your skin will contract with the loss of fat cells, meaning there will be no loose skin or stretch marks.
Does it cause bruising?
Some patients may experience bruising after this treatment is performed, which can be caused by the suction of the applicator. However, any bruising caused should resolve within a week and if you have any concerns about any after-effects, speak to our team at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic who are always there to help and advise you.
