I’m guest posting at a new and exciting website called Hello XOXO. It’s based out of Sacramento, CA and is an amazing group of women, including my dear friend Sarah Maren Whitehead!
I wrote about my triathlon training and motivation. Im sure it doesn’t come as a surprise that a natural high wasn’t enough for me…
Go and report back.
Someone recently found my blog by searching “liposuction by freezing.”
I’m not sure how this connection to my blog was made, but I’m pretty sure this person went away very frustrated.
And I feel bad.
So just in case anyone else out there finds my blog by researching liposuction by freezing, this is the latest information I could find (and only spending about 10 minutes on it).
Liposuction by freezing is noninvasive and doesn’t hurt the skin. (I guess regular liposuction does hurt the skin because you have to cut a hole in it to get in there.)
Cold induces lipolysis, which is the breakdown of fat. The fat cells dissolve and release their contents. (I’m not sure if this means random nuclei are just floating around- it would have taken 15 minutes of research to figure that out.)
You sit in a chair and a technician puts a suction cup on your fat. It takes a long time to destroy fat cells so you may not see results for a while and it may take several applications. (It’s colder than regular ice cubes. I know someone out there was thinking of buying an ice block and sitting on it for a while.)
It is most affective for “the muffin top, front abdomen, and flank love handle areas.” http://blogs.webmd.com/cosmetic-surgery/2010/09/fat-removal-without-liposuction.html
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-1089060/Freezing-flab-The-new-non-invasive-procedure-set-replace-liposuction.html#ixzz1l0V9sykS was also consulted.
There you go. I truly hope this was helpful and more power to you if you try this.
Please let me know how it goes.
