Having an abdominal potbelly is common with age, in both men and women. This abdominal buoy reflects the passing of time and sometimes reminds us that we must keep a healthy lifestyle. However, sport or diet are often insufficient to regain a flat, harmonious and attractive belly.
Belly fat persists by weighing down the silhouette.
Thanks to aesthetic medicine, it is possible to regain a slim figure with cryolipolysis, a high-performance technique for slimming: a single session destroys 25 to 30% of localized fat deposits.
The principle: how to lose weight rapidly?
Cryolipolysis is a method to lose weight easily, because it allows the permanent destruction of fat cells by the cold. It is a scientific method supported by numerous medical studies, published in international journals. This is why Coolsculpting® was the first cryolipolysis device in the world approved by the FDA.
What is belly fat?
In men, genetic and hormonal factors determine the so-called android model, with a preferential distribution of fat in the upper part of the body. This results in adipomastia of the thorax and abdominal belly, sometimes as early as 40 years of age. A sedentary lifestyle and diet will then accentuate it.
In women, the so-called gynoid distribution is different, and mainly affects the lower part of the body (hips, thighs, buttocks). However, andropause, causing the increase in androgen levels, will contribute to the appearance of a belly in women as well.
How does the cold act on the abdominal belly fat ?
Cryolipolysis uses intense and prolonged cold to crystallize the lipid vacuoles of the adipocytes (fat storage cells), which will damage the cell membrane.
This cold must be at least -10°C for at least 25/30 minutes. Since a storage cell has little cellular material to repair itself, this lesion triggers its definitive destruction by apoptosis.
As an adipocyte is also unable to multiply, any fat cell destroyed is therefore destroyed forever.
How can fat deposits be permanently removed?
When the adipocyte cell is destroyed, it will first remain in the body, causing the fat volume to remain unchanged.
Its absorption is done progressively by the macrophage, a type of white blood cell, via the lymphatic system. Nothing enters the bloodstream, so there is no risk regarding cholesterol or triglyceride levels. This cleansing of cellular debris and lipids takes 1 to 3 months, causing the fat volume to decrease gradually and in a progressive and staggered manner.
A single session of cryolipolysis eventually removes 25 to 30% of the fat from the belly, with a visible result after about 1 to 3 months.
The indications: who can easily regain a flat belly?
Abdominal cryolipolysis is suitable for any person wishing to lose weight effortlessly, provided that their weight is stabilized. Losing weight on the stomach should not be mistaken with a medical treatment for morbid obesity or severe overweight.
Cryolipolysis is aimed at localized fat bulges, such as a belly or abdominal buoy, sometimes as an alternative to abdominal liposuction. If, on the other hand, there is excess skin to be resected, abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is often the only solution.
The procedure of Coolsculpting to lose belly fat
This belly slimming session takes place at the Clinique des Champs Elysées in New-York. It lasts about 60 minutes. The procedure is painless because the cold numbs the belly.To regain a flat belly, Coolsculpting® offers two types of applicators, which can be combined with vacuum aspiration if necessary. Your esthetic doctor can select either a large applicator or two medium applicators.
A painless strap keeps the cryogenic probe on your abdomen during the session: you can pass time as you wish, without getting up.
At the end of the procedure, a gentle draining and emollient massage protects the skin and breaks up fatty deposits.
The results of cryolipolysis: lose belly fat effectively
The result of one session appears in 4 weeks, and provides optimal results between 2 and 3 months. One to three appointments at 2 month intervals are usually necessary to slim the belly without effort.
With a flat belly, your silhouette becomes leaner, younger, more dynamic.
The cryolipolysis of the belly makes it possible to eventually lose up to half of your abdominal fat, safely and painlessly.
