    Does fat return after cryolipolysis? Dr Slodzian Bordeaux

    Cryolipolysis is one of the leading techniques for losing fat, particularly rolls of fat around the stomach, love handles and saddlebags. It consists of eliminating localized fat by destroying adipocytes using cold.


    A reminder of how cryolipolysis works.

    During a session, one or more applicators are placed on the area concerned. The bulge is sucked out, and the temperature is lowered to -10 degrees depending on the area. The applicator remains in place for between 30 and 45 minutes. After this time, the area is massaged and the applicator replaced if more than one is required.


    When do you see results from cryolipolysis?

    Fat is destroyed within 3 months. Therefore, we can only judge a before effect at least 3 months after the session. This doesn't mean that there are no results beforehand, but as they are progressive, you may not see them. That's why we take measurements and photos before your Cryolipolysis session.


    How long do the results of cryolipolysis last?

    How long the results last depends mainly on you. After all, we're talking about fat elimination. So how long the treatment lasts depends essentially on how long you have without reconstituting the fat mass you had.


    Does the fat return after the session?

    Cryolipolysis should only be considered as an aid in your efforts to improve your figure. Cryolipolysis must be accompanied by a healthier diet and physical exercise to improve results and their duration. In fact, if you don't pay attention to these parameters, there's a risk that fat rolls will reform and that other areas will get bigger.

    Do I need to diet before or after the sessions?

    We don't like to talk about diets, we prefer to talk about eating habits. It's important to remember that diet is responsible for 70% of accumulated fat. Whatever measures you take to lose those unsightly rolls of fat, you need to rethink your eating habits. We'd like to warn you not to adopt overly restrictive diets. These can put your health at risk, without being effective. Ideally, you should consult a nutritionist.



    The answer to the question of fat return after cryolipolysis is :

    • No, it won't come back if you combine investing in your body with a healthy lifestyle. Whether in terms of diet or physical activity. Don't hesitate to enlist the help of professionals such as nutritionists or dieticians.
    • Yes, if you don't change your habits.
