What is Cryolipolysis Fat Freezing?
Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive procedure that gently and effectively removes fat from targeted areas of the body that have not responded to traditional diet and exercise. Patients can benefit from noticeable yet natural-looking results in their problem areas, providing an overall smoother body contour. Cryolipolysis is most effective in removing fat from the abdomen, love handles (flanks) and back. The process is also known as "Fat Freezing".
The results of the Cryolipolysis procedure are achieved using the advanced Cryolipolysis Technology, which cools the targeted tissue to break down the fat cells for easy removal, without any harm to the surrounding tissue. Fat cells have been proven to be more vulnerable to cold than the surrounding tissue. This stimulates a natural fat removal process that continues for several months after the procedure.
Cryolipolysis is a non-surgical fat reduction treatment that effectively targets and removes stubborn areas of fat. Cryolipolysis gently freezes and eliminates fat cells which, over time, results in a shapely, more defined figure. This unique treatment is the perfect solution to typical problem areas that are resistant to traditional diet and exercise, such as:
- Upper arms
- Inner and outer thighs

Good candidates for Cryolipolysis have stubborn areas of fat on their bodies that resist diet and exercise. Fat freezing cannot help people who are obese, nor is it a replacement treatment for patients in need of surgical fat removal. At your consultation, your doctor will help determine if Cryolipolysis is the right treatment for you.
Cryolipolysis can slim down the upper and lower abdomen, upper arms, inner and outer thighs, hips, love handles, flanks, male torso, and male chest.
Clinical studies show a 20% to 40% reduction in fat in the area treated with Cryolipolysis, although results will vary depending on the individual, the thickness of the fatty tissue, and the eating habits maintained post-treatment.
One treatment may be enough to achieve your desired results, or you may choose to have further sessions for even greater fat loss.
Fat freezing is a non-surgical treatment requiring no anaesthetic. The fat freezing device is placed on the selected body area. The cooling panels will draw up and then chill the bulge. The fat cells freeze and die naturally. Only the fat cells are affected by the cold temperature; the surrounding tissue is left unharmed and healthy. Over the next few weeks, the dead fat cells are broken down and expelled from your body during natural metabolic activities.
No! For the first five minutes of your treatment, you will feel pressure and warmth in the treated area followed by coldness. This can be uncomfortable, but not painful. Shortly after, the discomfort dissipates and you can read, relax, or work on your laptop for the rest of the treatment.
Each Cryolipolysis session at Clinic Fiore in London takes 45 minutes on average. It may take longer if more than one area is being treated. In some cases, two areas can be treated at once. During your consultation, your doctor will inform you how long your treatment will take.
Maximum results take at least eight weeks to appear post-treatment, however many patients notice visible fat loss in as little as three weeks.
Yes. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they will not grow back (adults cannot grow new fat cells). A healthy lifestyle will help optimise your results. In fact, many patients feel more motivated to eat healthy and exercise after treatment. We can offer you dietary advice alongside your treatment if desired.
Cryolipolysis is proven to be a safe and effective treatment. Side effects are rare and can include redness, bruising, swelling, tenderness, cramping, itching, and numbness. You may require painkillers. Your doctor will fully discuss with you the potential side effects prior to the treatment.
There's no recovery period necessary after Cryolipolysis. It's a simple non-surgical procedure that allows you to return to your usual activities right away.
You may experience minor redness, bruising, or numbness in the treated area, but this is only temporary. Many patients have their treatment during a lunch break and return to work once it has finished.
