Freeze off fat!

fat cell

A new fat busting treatment has become available which is designed to freeze hard-to-shift fat cells to death.

 

The machine uses a method called cryolipolysis to target, chill and break down fat cells in the body. It has been developed by scientists at Harvard University and one treatment is said to destroy up to 25 per cent of fat cells in the area.

 

During the procedure, the temperature of the fat cells goes right down to zero celsius, literally killing them and then the dead cells are removed naturally by the body through the liver.

 

For those with stubborn small pockets of fat the treatment can be impressive - but for  those with larger sections of fat on the bum and thighs the treatment has proven less effective.

 

Those after a quick fix will be disappointed to learn that inch-loss is not immediate. It can take anything from two to three months for the dead fat cells to naturally leave the body through the urine, and results to appear.

 

Those looking to lose weight or shift stubborn fat from can be assured they will receive a top class service with The Hospital Group.

 

The Hospital Group is the UK's biggest provider of weight loss surgery, including gastric bands, gastric bypasses and gastric balloons which can give you a healthier lifestyle.

 

They also offer abdominoplasty to remove excess skin from the body, or liposuction to zap away fat from problem areas.

 

David Ross, Chief Executive of The Hospital Group said: "For those who are looking to shift fat quickly from problem areas, liposuction and liposculpture can provide the perfect solution.

 

"If being overweight has become an issue, then bariatric surgery may be considered. Here are The Hospital Group, we offer a whole host of weight loss surgery, which can have dramatic and long lasting results.

 

"Those who come to The Hospital Group can be assured of a dedicated, professional service from trusted and knowledgeable surgeons, in top class surroundings."
