Fat reduction and body contouring treatments have evolved significantly in recent times. You can now eliminate excess body fat through surgical and non-surgical treatments. These treatments break down and remove stubborn fat pockets, helping you achieve your desired body contours.
That said, candidates must understand that fat-reduction treatments are used for body contouring only and not weight loss. An ideal candidate must have a stable weight and should not be obese when getting treatment.

Who is the candidate for reduction treatment?
Generally, you are an ideal candidate for fat reduction treatments if you:
- Have localized fat deposits on your body
- Have tried exercises and dietary changes without any improvement
- Are not obese or overweight
- Have stable weight
- Are 20 years or above
- Want to improve your body contours
- Have elastic and firm skin
- Have realistic expectations from the procedure
Non-Surgical Fat Reduction Treatments
A number of non-surgical fat removal techniques are used to get rid of stubborn fatty deposits in different body areas. Some non-surgical fat reduction techniques are as follows:
Fat Reduction Injections
Fat reduction injections can help remove fat from any body region but are more commonly used to treat a Double Chin. Also known as injection lipolysis, this treatment typically involves injecting a specialized chemical (deoxycholic acid) into the fat layer under the skin. This chemical reduces the fat volume around the injection site by reacting with fat cells.
Radio Frequency Therapy
Another non-surgical medical procedure for fat reduction is radiofrequency therapy. During this treatment, an expert uses RF waves to break down fat tissues, which then leave the body through lymphatic pathways. Besides body contouring, this treatment helps enhance collagen production, making the skin more elastic, supple, and smooth. It may also help improve skin tone.
CoolSculpting or Cryolipolysis is a popular and innovative method for non-surgical fat removal. This technique is also called fat freezing because it works by freezing fat cells. During this treatment, the body area with excess fat deposits is exposed to extremely low temperatures – approximately -10 Celsius. As a result, the fat cells are frozen and broken down. These broken-down fat cells ultimately leave the body naturally.
Lipotropic injections can also be an excellent technique to lose stubborn fat. These are like fat loss supplements in an injectable form. They contain nutrients, vitamins, and other ingredients that aid fat loss. While this treatment can be beneficial for fat reduction, it does not work quite well without a proper weight loss regimen.
Surgical Fat Reduction Treatment Technique
Besides the non-surgical fat reduction treatment techniques, a surgical procedure for fat reduction is also available.
Liposuction is a surgical fat removal technique that offers remarkable body contouring results. During liposuction or lipo, an expert dislodges localized fat cells by injecting a medicated solution. Those fat cells are then removed using a suction device. This helps candidates achieve their desired body contours.
Benefits of Fat Reduction Procedure
Every fat reduction treatment offers many benefits. Some of these benefits are:
- All fat reduction treatments are safe and provide effective results.
- The downtime after non-surgical fat removal treatments is minimal.
- No fat reduction procedure causes severe side effects.
- The recovery is quick and uneventful.
- All treatments for reducing unwanted fat offer long-lasting results.
- These treatments help restore sharp body contours and improve overall body shape.
Fat Reduction FAQs
Does fat reduction really work?
Whether a fat reduction treatment works depends on the candidate’s overall condition and the selected method. Most experts believe liposuction is the most effective fat reduction treatment, yet it may not suit everyone due to its surgical nature. So, experts analyze each case individually and choose the most suitable treatment.
Can I remove fat without surgery?
Yes, fat removal without surgery is very much a possibility today. Several non-surgical fat reduction methods, like CoolSculpting, lipotropic injections, radiofrequency treatment, low-level laser treatment, etc., are available to help you get rid of those unwanted fat pockets.
How much does it cost to reduce fat?
The cost of each fat reduction treatment varies from candidate to candidate, mainly due to the difference in techniques. Besides the treatment area size, the amount of fat to be removed, the number of sessions, and the candidate’s desired results also impact the final price. So, only an expert can determine the exact cost for each individual.
What is the best fat removal procedure?
As far as surgical procedures are concerned, liposuction is considered the best. However, CoolSculpting and low-level laser treatments are considered best for non-surgical fat reduction.
How quickly can I see results?
All fat reduction treatments provide natural-looking and long-lasting results. But the results will appear depending on the chosen technique.
How many treatments do I need to have?
The number of sessions varies for each fat reduction treatment. Generally, Cryolipolysis needs 2 sessions, lipotropic injections need 2 sessions, and radiofrequency treatment needs 5-6 sessions.
How much fat can I lose?
Candidates can lose a significant amount of fat with different fat reduction treatments. With liposuction, they can lose around 2-5 pounds of fat. On the other hand, Cryolipolysis can help reduce nearly 25% of unwanted fat deposits
