You’ve finally taken that first step to address the stubborn fats via CoolSculpting. How do you ensure maximum results for your fat reduction treatments?
“Losing weight makes a smaller version of you and of the bulges in areas that you do not want like the tummy and thighs. Many people think that spot toning exercises and weight loss medications are effective in dealing with those stubborn fats.
It’s not true,” says Dr. Terence Tan, Director of Halley Medical Aesthetics.
With CoolSculpting, post-procedure care does not involve you having to go for lymphatic deep massages or to wear girdles, unlike liposuction. Fat cells that were crystallised during the procedure will be eliminated naturally by the body over the next couple of months. “Many patients ask me if they would waste the fat reduction treatments if they gain weight or get pregnant later.
The answer is no,” says Dr. Tan.
“Since the body has no ability to form new fat cells after five years of age, less fat cells mean less enlargement of that area with weight gain after fat freezing. When weight normalises again, the size would still be smaller than before,” he explains.
Nonetheless, it doesn’t mean you can be complacent and ignore the fact that your new, well-contoured body has to be taken care of. There are two things you might want to do to complement the fat freezing treatment.
Watch the weight
Optimise your cryolipolysis treatments with a doctor-monitored weight management plan like Halley’s Mini Slim Programme for an overall weight loss and health improvement. After all, the crux of true weight loss success is from the adjustments made to your lifestyle and diet.
The Mini Slim Programme consists of four doctor’s consultations and three types of weight loss medications for three months. Medications are clinically tested and approved and help to curb appetite and block fat absorption.
Move your body
Exercising doesn’t mean a total overhaul to your lifestyle and they are certainly not “torture sessions” for your joints. Start easy and slow, progressing only when your body is able to. Here are some ideas to get you started:
Medical technology may provide solutions for fat elimination but a healthy dose of physical effort is still needed to minimise weight gain. After all, a healthy physique is a beautiful one.
