Rise in demand for body fat reduction
In an affluent society such as Singapore, we are blessed with excessive food options. As a result of our dietary habits, we accumulate excessive fat on our bodies. Despite rigorous exercise and weight loss, these stubborn pockets of body fat would not go away. This greatly affect our self esteem when we do not look good in the clothes we want to wear. Many patients are on the lookout for non invasive body fat reduction programs without resorting to surgery such as liposuction.
How do we treat stubborn pockets of fat?
There are many ways to get rid of fat cells in the body. High Intensive Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) Body Fat reduction is one of these methods. We apply sound waves to target and trigger apoptosis (programmed cell death) of fat cells. In the weeks following treatment, the fat cells are eliminated by our body own natural processes. HIFU Body Fat Reduction also has the added benefit of tightening our skin and reducing the appearance of cellulite.
When will I see results from Body Fat Reduction Program?
You would see up to 20% fat reduction in treated area over a period of 2 – 3 months. However, HIFU Body Fat Reduction should not be viewed as a weight loss program. It only targets subcutaneous fat under our skin but does not remove visceral fat around our internal organs. Therefore, it does not reduce your health risks to obesity related diseases if your BMI (Basal Metabolic Index) is in the unhealthy range.
To aim for a healthy BMI, you should continue to monitor your calorie intake and increase your physical activities. Check out our weight loss program and our calorie calculator to manage your weight today.
