What is Local Slimming?
Procedures applied to get rid of persistent fat in areas such as waist, hip and navel are called local slimming or local loss of weight. As this persistent fat is the adipose tissue that cannot be eliminated regardless of how much diet or sports you do, non-surgical local slimming methods have become a centre of attraction in Turkey. Local slimming aesthetic procedures, which are very popular all over the world, are a saviour for many people who are in trouble with persistent fat in certain parts of their body.
What are the Non-surgical Local Slimming Methods?
Thanks to the developments in the aesthetics field, it seems easier to get rid of local excess fat deposits that can deform the body and cannot be eliminated through diet or exercise. Patients who managed to get rid of this type of fat only by surgical methods can now easily get rid of such problems thanks to the developing technology without going under the knife.
Some people achieve successful results by using the following methods to eliminate excess fat tissues in certain parts of their bodies, although they have a thin body.
- Non-invasive Ultrasonographic
- Cold Lipolysis
- Sometimes a few of these methods are combined to get rid of fat tissues that cause lousy appearance. Thus, more effective solutions are created for needs. The method appropriate for the person is determined after a detailed dermatological examination to be performed by the physician.
Local Slimming with Non-invasive Ultrasonographic Method
In the Non-invasive Ultrasonographic method, sound waves break down the cells in the adipose tissue under the skin. These broken cells are metabolised by the liver and kidneys and are excreted from the body. Non-invasive Ultrasonographic method used to be carried out with cavitation technology, but with the possibilities provided by modern technology, now using the empowered focused ultrasonographic body shaping technology, the much higher energy focuses on a single point under the skin and punctures and removes fat cells permanently.
Local Slimming with Radiofrequency (R.F.) Method
In the radio frequency (R.F.) method, the energy generated by radio waves tightens the connective tissue in the skin and renews it. Anaesthesia is not required in this method, which does not cause any pain. Radiofrequency (R.F.) method, which can be applied anywhere except the scalp and genital region, lasts for about an hour. A total of 6 sessions are applied, generally once a week. It is appropriate for all people with a body mass index below 30% and having local fat deposit problems. Especially if there is prolapse or loosening of the skin, specialist physicians consider the Radiofrequency (R.F.) method quite ideal.
Local Slimming with Mesolipolysis/Biolipolysis Method
In the mesolipolysis method, a herbal drug called phosphatidylcholine, which has a good fat-dissolving ability, is injected into the adipose tissue. This drug disrupts the metabolism of fat cells, causing them to die. Still, recently, a more advanced method, biolipolysis, has been introduced by adding extra enzymes to this drug. With this method, it is ensured that the adipose tissue is destroyed and removed from the body. During the application, the drug is delivered into the adipose tissue with special tip injectors. It is quite ideal for persons with a body mass index below 30%.
Local Slimming with Cold Lipolysis Method
Cold lipolysis treatment is used to remove excess fat tissue deposits, especially in the navel, sides of the body, lower abdomen, back, hip and legs. 20% to 40% of fatty tissues are permanently reduced in a single session. It provides the burning of the membranes by cooling them without damaging other tissues around the adipose tissue. Thus, it is absorbed and destroyed by macrophages that act as the body’s scavenger cells. The cold lipolysis method is painless, the procedures take about 45 minutes, and then the person can return to his/her daily life immediately.
Permanent fat loss must be supported with diet and sports after any of the local slimming methods are applied. If the current weight is not maintained and new fat formation occurs in the person, it will be inevitable to experience problems again due to local excess fat deposits.
