• Cryolipolysis in London

Cryolipolysis in London, Bordeaux and Royan

Cryolipolysis is an innovative and modern technique that destroys clusters of fat cells by freezing them. Cryolipolysis does not require any incisions, surgery, needles, or anaesthesia. Over a million people have already tried this technique.

Research at Harvard University in the 2000s showed that lipid cells, also called adipocytes, are more sensitive to the cold than other cells.

Doctor Lemierre has been practicing cosmetic surgery for over 10 years in Bordeaux and Royan. He has mastered many surgical techniques such as liposuction and has developed an impressive skill set by offering his patients innovative and effective techniques. He is specialised in cryolipolysis.

You will have the opportunity to rediscover your silhouette as harmonious and well proportioned. Say goodbye to bulges of fat and enjoy the body you have always wanted.

Cryolipolysis is a natural, physiological process that locally reduces fat to obtain a slim and harmonious silhouette. The results are similar to those of a liposuction, except it does not require a surgical intervention.

What is cryolipolysis? By being exposed to intense cold, fat cells crystallise and begin a ‘natural death.’ Over the course of several sessions, the adipocytes disappear progressively. You must drink a lot of water after each session to eliminate the residue.

Doctor Lemierre, a cosmetic surgeon specialised in cryolipolysis, makes it a point to accompany and guide you towards the best result.


Why choose cryolipolysis?

If you feel as though you have concentrated areas of fatty cells and you would like to get rid of the rolls of fat without resorting to cosmetic surgery, cryolipolysis is for you.

This innovative technique requires no incisions, no needs, and no anaesthesia, and works on these regions:

  • Stomach
  • Love handles
  • Back
  • Inner thighs
  • Chest (for men)
  • Saddlebags
  • Buttocks

If you suffer from severe conditions triggered by the cold such as hives, Raynaud’s syndrome, or abdominal ‘inguinal’ or ‘femoral’ hernias, Doctor Lemierre can orient you towards other techniques to help you reshape your silhouette. Cryolipolysis is not recommended for pregnant women or while breast-feeding.

Be aware, the goal is not to eradicate all fat. For women, some fat in the stomach area is important as it allows women to secrete hormones (especially estrogen, which is important for skin brightness).

Just as for any other procedure done by Doctor Guillaume Lemierre in his clinics in Bordeaux or Royan, he will guide you towards the best option for you. He also suggests that you maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly to optimise the results, but also so you can stay in shape.

Combining a healthy diet with exercise is important when choosing cryolipolysis, which shows a willingness to be in good health. You will have the opportunity to rediscover your body.

What are the advantages and inconveniences?

The advantages:

  • A natural technique: without any incisions, surgery, anaesthesia, or needles
  • Painless compared to liposuction
  • No hospitalisation
  • Can be done in Doctor Lemierre’s clinic
  • Short and efficient session
  • Allows you to reshape and thin out your body in very little time
  • Visible and long lasting results

The inconveniences and possible risks:

  • Risk of inflammation and fibrosis on the long term (very rare)
  • Redness after the session
  • Reduced sensitivity in the treated zones
  • Bruising after the session (disappears after a few days)
  • This technique does not work for zones that are too numerous or voluminous. In this case Doctor Lemierre recommends liposuction.
  • Adipose hyperplasia is a very rare risk but may appear. This is the growth of a mass of fat in the treatment zone. In other words, the mass that was deflated begins to grow back. In this case, due to his numerous years of experience, Doctor Lemierre can perform liposuction. Be aware that a cosmetic doctor cannot administer this treatment. Liposuction is a surgical procedure.

As you can see, cryolipolysis has numerous advantages and only several inconveniences. Complications are for the most part very rare.

What does a typical session look like?

From the first session, Doctor Lemierre will be there to listen to your needs, wants, and desires as he examines your silhouette. He will also analyse the quality of you skin, the thickness of the folds of your skin, your weight, and the treatment zones.

A session lasts between 50 and 70 minutes, about one hour per zone. Several regions can be treated simultaneously.

Thanks to Doctor Lemierre’s innovative tool, you will feel no pain, just a cold sensation for 5 to 10 minutes. Once you have been anaesthetised by the cold, you will no longer feel anything. During the session you can read a book, watch a movie, or listen to music. Beverages will be provided if you want.

To obtain a natural and long lasting result you need about 2 to 4 sessions depending on which zones you want to treat.

A natural and long lasting result

Younger skin responds better to cryolipolysis.

You will have to wait two to three months to fully appreciate the final results; depending on which zones you have treated. This is the time it takes for the fatty cells to disappear and be naturally eliminated.

To optimise the natural and long lasting results of cryolipolysis, Doctor Lemierre recommends you maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly.

Choosing this type of technique indicates that you want to take care of your body and your health. Having a healthy diet and exercising regularly will optimise the results of the work done by Doctor Lemierre and will make you feel better.

What is the post-procedural process?

After each cryolipolysis session, you may experience small amounts of redness, a little swelling, and an uncomfortable sensation. However, these disappear quickly and you will immediately be able to resume all activities, including sports.

Once again, it is essential for your body, and to optimise the results of cryolipolysis, that you stabilise your weight by exercising regularly (walking, hiking, cycling, jogging, cardio, etc.) and maintaining a healthy diet.

Same as for a liposuction, a healthy diet and exercise after cryolipolysis ensure you will have the best results for a harmonious and slim silhouette!
