This is how you get rid of ugly knees
Sabine Leenhouts wants to get rid of the fat deposits on the inside of her knees. She thinks she has ugly, fat knees and says, “no matter how much weight I lose or gain, those knees always remain the same and that’s where the fat has to be removed.”
She sets an appointment at Kazem Aesthetica for a CoolSculpting treatment. For her column in Dutch magazine VROUW, called ‘living greedily’ she made a video about the freezing of fat cells.
“It feels like getting a hickey from a polar bear”
When the applicator is placed on the knee it feels a little like getting a hickey from a polar bear. Thankfully the treatment is comfortable enough to read a magazine. But rather, she’d ask plastic surgeon Kazem some questions. She’s interested why he’s not doing liposuction on her knees. The doctor explains that doesn’t just do surgery.
Non-invasive treatments have become more popular because of their speed and lack of a long recovery period. The total package of surgical and non-surgical treatments keeps the profession interesting and exciting. It’s also nice to see that when someone wants to change something about their appearance, they’ll have a choice of treatment that best fits their expectations.
After a little more than an hour, Sabine is done. When the applicator is removed she does think it looks a little funny, and the fat deposit feels extremely cold. But that feeling soon disappears. The fat cells have been destroyed and will leave the body in several weeks.
Fat deposits around the knee almost never disappear with a healthy diet and are extremely difficult to get rid off with exercise. That’s because these small fat deposits are usually caused by the increased number of fat cells around the knee. Genes play a big role in this. A lot of people have small fat deposits in specific places while the fat everywhere else on the body is at a normal level. Think about a belly, double chin, fat deposits on the knees or arms, or fat on the thighs, also called saddle bags. When these fat deposits don’t disappear with exercise or weight loss, the fat can be removed with the CoolSculpting treatment.
Removing knee fat with CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is a treatment for those who’d rather have fat removed without surgery. With a special applicator for the knee the fat cells are intensively cooled for 35 minutes. The fat cells break apart because of this and are cleaned up by the body over the span of several weeks. There’s no recovery period and because it takes a few weeks before the fat disappears the skin in the knees won’t weaken. Just like with liposuction, the fat cells do not return.
Liposuction is often used when large quantities of fat have to be removed. Liposuction however is a surgery, with the associated risks and sometimes a very painful recovery period. Liposuction can give uneven results on the legs. The skin of the knees can also be weakened because the fat disappears at once. Especially when over 40 years old, when the skin becomes less elastic, CoolSculpting can be a far better choice.
CoolSculpting now even faster
In the video doctor Kazem uses the new Cool Advantage applicators. That makes the treatment a lot faster. In 35 minutes the fat cells are cooled intensively. The treatment is also more comfortable because of a softer vacuum pull of the new applicator.
