Overly pronounced hips may be caused by poor diet or a lack of physical activity.
As a result, excess fat will settle on the hips, the buttocks and thighs, especially in women. Also our genes dictate where fat is stored. In general, pregnancy and breastfeeding make women naturally more predisposed to storing fat. However, overly pronounced hips can be bothersome, in particular for the choice of clothing.
Even though lipoaspiration is the treatment par excellence in terms of reducing hip size, cryolipolysis can be equally effective if there is less fat to be lost.
Liposuction of the belly is a fat removal procedure that removes once and for all those stubborn fat cells that are impossible to shift by dieting alone. The procedure consists of inserting, through tiny incisions, fine cannulas (3-4 mm), which are connected to a surgical aspirator. This procedure produces lasting results.
Cryolipolysis is a non-surgical procedure that reduces fat cells (adipocytes) through freezing. This non-invasive method does not require any anaesthetic. It involves cooling down the fat cells to -8°C to trigger their destruction (lipolysis) naturally and definitively.
