WEIGHT LOSS CLINIC MUMBAI| ASSURE CLINIC


Weight loss, in the context of medicine, health, or physical fitness, refers to a reduction of the total body mass, due to a mean loss of fluid, body fat or adipose tissue and/or lean mass, namely bone mineral deposits, muscle, tendon, and other connective tissue.

Weight loss can either occur unintentionally due to malnourishment or an underlying disease or arise from a conscious effort to improve an actual or perceived overweight or obese state.

"Unexplained" weight loss that is not caused by reduction in calorific intake or exercise is called cachexia and may be a symptom of a serious medical condition. Intentional weight loss is commonly referred to as slimming.


Ultrasonic Liposuction

U-lipo treatment is the latest non-surgical weight loss procedure to reduce fat. But is u-lipo safe, is it a long term weight loss treatment and what are the side effects of u-lipo? Dr. Abhishek, an Obesity Consultant associated with a popular weight loss clinic explains this surgery in detail and clears our doubts on u-lipo.

U-lipo is the latest innovation in the wellness and fitness industry for fat reduction. U-Lipo uses a new Ultrasound Lipolysis & Tripolar RF based system, making it a painless and non-surgical way to get rid of excess cms/fats from the various parts of the body to get the body back in shape.

The Low Frequency Ultrasound technology of U-lipo allows a prefixed amount of energy to be focused onto the subcutaneous adipose tissue. As the ultra sound waves converge towards the targeted area, they accumulate at a certain point and produce the so called cavitation effect leading to mechanical breaking of the cellular membranes and the release in the inter-cellular fluid of the stored triglycerides, which are rapidly and naturally metabolised. The technological system is very selective as only the adipose tissue is being targeted and no other tissue is altered in the process. Treatment is available for the tummy, sides, hips, thighs, arms, saddlebag, calf, upper back, lower back, B-line, face and chin.

Benefits of U-Lipo:

Effective:

U-Lipo reduces unwanted cms (Upto 10 cms) after just one treatment. Results can be seen immediately after each treatment. A course of six to eight treatments is recommended over five to eight weeks with one to two treatments per week.

Economical:

U-Lipo is more affordable compared to surgical liposuction or other laser techniques, and gives better results.

Safe and Painless:

U-Lipo uses low frequency ultrasound and Tri Polar RF and is therefore painless and completely safe. You can live a completely normal day-today life after treatment. No anaesthesia required for the treatment. U-Lipo is suitable for both men and women of all age groups. This treatment is done by qualified doctors, so you are in safe hands. The team of dieticians and doctors are available in the clinic to guide you with regard to a healthy diet and lifestyle.






Cryo Freeze Liposuction

The principle behind cryogenic lipolysis is that fat-containing cells known as adipocytes are more susceptible to cold temperatures than other types of cells. It is similar to what happens when exposure to cold weather leads to frostbite - where the fat cells freeze before the skin cells freeze - so with cryogenic lipolysis the fat cells are frozen whilst leaving the skin cells intact.

One device commonly used in the procedure has two cooling panels attached to a cup-shaped applicator to apply cool temperatures to the area being treated. Vacuum pressure sucks the fat bulge into the hand-held applicator, and cool temperatures are applied for about 45 minutes to 1 hour to kill the adipocytes. During the procedure the person being treated will feel pressure and extreme cold at first, but these sensations don't last more than a few minutes. When the device is removed the fat will have hardened but it will soften again within minutes. The area should then be massaged for a couple of minutes. The person can return to their normal activities immediately, but it will take time to notice any results.

Inflammation at the site appears after about 3 days and is usually most noticeable after about 14 days. It occurs as the body produces a natural response to injury, resulting in lymphocytes and other mononuclear cells surrounding the dead fat cells, and then the body's immune system sending macrophages and other phagocytes to the area to digest the fat cells 14-30 days after treatment. Studies have found that there are no increased levels of fat in the bloodstream.

By a month's time after treatment, the inflammation should subside as the number of destroyed fat cells decrease. It will take 2 to 4 months before the results of the treatment are apparent. Cryogenic lipolysis, often marketed as CoolSculpting, can generally reduce fat by 20-25%.

Weightloss for men and Women

Men tend to have more lean muscle tissue, which burns more calories than body fat, even during rest. And when men and women cut the same number of calories, men usually do lose more weight, men have more muscle mass, they burn about 20 percent more calories doing nothing, even at the same height, and men are on average 5 inches taller than women, which further widens the calorie burning gap.
