Stubborn Fat Deposits – Get Rid Of Them!

There are zones on the body where small fat deposits are particularly resistant. They just don’t want to disappear despite strict and regular workouts and a healthy diet. Philipp Triemer, MD, specialist in Aesthetic Cosmetic Medicine, explains which areas are particularly affected and how to get rid of excess fat. Small fat deposits can be extremely frustrating. “Even though it is often suggested, sport and a healthy diet are often not enough to shape the body in a targeted way,” explains Philipp Triemer. “We can work on our overall weight. In addition, sport can make certain areas look more muscular and thus more toned and defined. Both are definitely useful. But exactly where our organism breaks down the fat is something we unfortunately have little influence over.” Such stubborn deposits can be treated with cryolipolysis, i.e. with cold – without any surgical intervention. There is also a new, time-saving method. Whereas previously each body zone had to be treated individually, the new generation of CoolSculpting devices does it more effectively and in half the time. This is because “Elite” has two independent treatment arms, each of which now has flatter and C-shaped applications that conform even more closely to the body’s natural contours. This means even better tissue contact. The tissue is sucked in more evenly, which means that comparatively more fat cells can be treated. Example: fat pads on the back Sleeveless dresses with back cleavage not only put the arms in the light of the viewer, but also any rolls on the back. “Many women are already bothered by tight tops when the back fat shows as unsightly rolls. The effect is intensified by the bra, which cuts into the fat pads,” says Philipp Triemer. It’s no wonder that back fat removal is a sought-after treatment: “CoolSculpting can be used to target the area of lateral back fat and achieve a defined silhouette.” The treated fat cells are gradually broken down by the body without leaving any residue. Initial results can be seen after about six weeks, and final results then finally after about three months. Thanks to the two treatment arms at “Elite”, both sides, right and left of the back, can now be treated simultaneously. This saves the patient time and money. Example: inner thighs Fat pads on the inner thighs are often not only a visual problem, but also extremely annoying when the insides rub against each other.… weiterlesen

Spare tyre? Just freeze it away!

Painless body forming without surgery Small to medium-sized fat deposits can now be literally killed off. The term Cryolipolysis, which stems from the ancient Greek words “cryos” (ice, frost), “lipa” (fat) and “lysis” (dissolution), is a modern, non-invasive method of body shaping. Cryotherapy is based on a highly developed, patented cooling technology. Allergan‘s CoolSculpting procedure, with which the Rosenpark Klinik has been working since its market launch in Europe, requires neither surgery, anesthesia nor painkillers. Dr. Sonja Sattler: “The aesthetic medicine industry constantly offers new methods of treatment. Especially in the minimally invasive area there are numerous possibilities to treat patients’ problem zones, entirely without the use of a scalpel and with no subsequent downtime. Melt away fat during your lunch break! The Cryolipolysis procedure enables us doctors to fight unwanted fat deposits in a more gentle fashion.” Putting the freeze on fat cells Once the patient is made comfortable on the treatment couch, the targeted areas are cooled down to 4° degrees Celsius using special applicators. In this way, the blood supply to the fat cells, which are very sensitive to cold, is interrupted, causing them to die off. There is no damage to organs, skin or the surrounding tissue. How are the frozen fat cells eliminated from the body? The organism’s metabolic system subsequently takes over, gradually removing them naturally. The treatment is completely painless. What one feels is the suction of the treated area by the device head. There may also be a sensation of numbness there for a short time afterwards. Gentle modelling Cryolipolysis is particularly suitable for modeling the hip region, its aim being the removal of small to medium-sized fat pockets. It is very helpful where sport and even the best of diets have failed. Especially effective in removing fat from the hips as well as “love handles” or abdominal fat in women, it is also useful in treating the insides of the thighs, the knees and the upper arms. Not for those who are overweight “Basically, this is not a method of reducing weight,” says Dr. Sonja Sattler from the Rosenpark Klinik in Darmstadt. “It is more suited to slimmer women and men who suffer from individual problem zones and wish to reduce these fat deposits in specific areas”. An otherwise slim silhouette will look even more harmonious after body shaping with Cryolipolysis. No restrictions, no downtime The treatment is outpatient and takes about two hours, depending on the individual diagnosis.… weiterlesen
