In general, a healthy, active lifestyle is the key to maintaining a slim, toned figure—but sometimes even diet and exercise aren’t enough to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat around your stomach, hips, or elsewhere, and it can be very frustrating. Liposuction can be an effective way of getting the look you want, but it comes with the risks and potential complications inherent to any surgical procedure. Cryolipolysis in Baden-Baden is a gentle, non-invasive alternative that eliminates that annoying extra fat effectively with no incisions or anesthesia.

Reasons to consider non-surgical fat reduction
Even sufficient exercise and targeted dieting are sometimes not enough to remove fat from certain areas of our bodies. If you are troubled by stubborn pockets of subcutaneous fat, Coolsculpting in Baden-Baden can help sculpt your figure. Cryolipolysis is a healthy way of body contouring, though it is not a weight loss method—overweight patients will first need to use conventional methods of getting to a normal weight before considering cryolipolysis. After you’ve lost the weight, cryolipolysis can help melt away any remaining “trouble zones” by freezing.
What is cryolipolysis?
In cryolipolysis, we use a special applicator on the treatment area, applying vacuum pressure to it in order to suction it in between two cooling plates. The applicator then cools the fatty tissue without damaging your skin, triggering targeted—but harmless—inflammation inside fat cells. The cold temperatures destroy the fat bulges, and your lymphatic system will then transport them out of your body naturally over the next few weeks.
Fat cells freeze faster
Cryolipolysis works based on the principle that fat cells are more sensitive to cold than other cells in the body. They crystallize at around 39° F. By exposing those fat cells to cold, this fat reduction destroys around 25 percent of the fat cells in the treatment area, without affecting other types of cells. Unlike surgery, cryolipolysis conserves the surrounding tissue (skin, muscles, etc.).
What areas of the body are affected?
Diet- and exercise-resistant fat deposits can build up almost anywhere in the body. Some of the most common problem areas include:
- Flanks (“love handles”, “muffin top”)
- Upper arms
