Humans are wonderful creatures, and we definitely don’t like to suffer. Since the days of liposuction or tummy/ body surgeries that required cutting open or slicing a piece of flesh, we have always looked for ways to remove fat by non-surgical procedures.

We have succeeded at it too, today the cosmetic and body contouring industry has devised more way than one to give you non-invasive fat reduction and non-surgical fat removal procedures without going under the knife.

How good are non surgical fat removal techniques compared to surgical methods?

Although these methods works, they are not as efficient in removing fat like invasive procedures like liposuction would. A single liposuction procedure will remove more than 10 times the amount of fat that a non-surgical procedure will remove in one go.

The procedures are loved for their non-invasive nature, and if you are looking for a perfect body or contour, you might have to come back for more than one procedure until you are satisfied as these procedures remove just the amount of fat cells the tool can hold on to.

So let’s get started.


This is a non-invasive fat reduction procedure that uses a fat freeze device to freeze fat cells under the skin without damaging the tissues or causing any danger to the skin.

The dead fat cells are easily then broken down by the lymphatic system and excreted from the body through the liver. In this non-surgical fat removal procedure, the patient comes into our facility for a checkup; once certified fit and okay will be booked on a specific date to come in for the procedure.

The patient seat or lies down of the surgical table/bed

The technician applies gel and gradually used the freeze tool to massage over the location supplying controlled temperature as low as -5 degrees Celsius to kill the fat cells

The results are instant but fully notable after a couple of weeks as the body continues to remove the dead fat cells from your system.
