Abdominal cryolipolysis and nonsurgical treatments

Cryolipolysis what is it

Cryolipolysis is a nonsurgical treatment of the abdomen designed to reduce superficial panniculus adiposus fat.

It is based on a heat shock that cools adipocytes and causes their breakdown .

The main critical point of treatment is the inevitable difficulty in treating the large surface area of the abdominal wall evenly.

In fact, the machine's probe has a modest, rectangular surface that is ill suited to the shape of the abdomen with its natural prominences and depressions.

Cryolipolysis indications, contraindications, and possible side effects

Cryolipolysis is proposed in the case of specific localized and superficial panniculus adiposus.

Although the treatment is non-surgical, it is not without possible trauma; the probe acts in a vacuum (pulling the abdominal part considerably) .

For this reason there is a relative contraindication to cryolipolysis in cases of abdominal distasis because the abdominal part of the midline is very thin and fragile.

A possible side effect of cryolipolysis is Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia PAH (Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia), where the fat stimulated by the treatment instead of shrinking hypertrophies and increases in the medium and long term.

This causes (only in the treated area), a visible, inflamed and unsightly permanent raised area that will need to be corrected with liposuction.

Finally, skin lesions consisting of low-temperature burns and skin depigmentation may occur.

In our experience, we prefer liposculpture to cryolipolysis to evenly and effectively treat the abdominal panniculus adiposus if needed.

We often perform liposculpture in conjunction with abdominal wall reconstructions for diastasis and excess skin removal to achieve a complete result in all respects.
