We all dream of having a little nip and tuck every now and then. From our chins, thighs, tummy’s or even our ankles, stubborn areas of fat are frustrating and we’re always looking for ways to eliminate them. Here are some of the best surgical and non-surgical fat reducing methods to contour specific areas and remove fat.
1. Freeze off your love handles
No matter how much you change your lifestyle, eliminate carbs and crunch until you cry, (we’ve all been there) those pesky love handles are often impossible to budge.
If you’re looking for a non-invasive solution to get rid of unwanted areas of fat, especially around the arms, outer and inner thighs and abdomen, then CoolSculpting might be exactly what you’re after. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure that eliminates stubborn fat by selectively targeting and freezing fat cells with no surgery or downtime. It uses advanced cooling to crystallise fat cells, which triggers natural cell death (a process called apoptosis). Your body then naturally processes and eliminates the dead fat cells over a period of 4-12 weeks.
You will generally notice a 20% visible reduction of fat in the treated area. Results may be seen as soon as 30 days, with optimal results seen between 8 and 12 weeks.

2. Shape up the old fashioned way
Here at the Eden Institute, Dr Edinburg and the team always encourage patients to stick to a good diet and exercise regime. By keeping to a healthy meal plan and ensuring you exercise at least 3 times a week, it can help you lose weight and improve your overall health. An interesting fact told to us by our patients is that often, once they have had either CoolSculpting or Liposuction, they are so pumped by the new look that they find themselves more motivated to keep working!
3. Eliminate excess fat for good
Sometimes, no matter how much diet or exercise you do, those troublesome areas of excess fat just won’t seem to go away.
Here at the Eden Institute, Dr Edinburg can offer you the chance to eradicate those stubborn areas of fat and contour your body using Liposuction. Ideal for use under the chin, upper arms, breasts, abdomen, hips, thighs, knees, calves and ankles, Liposuction uses a small thin tube (cannula) to dislodge and suction out fat deposits.
Best results are achieved in localised areas, but it should be noted that general obesity cannot be suitably treated with liposuction. In other words, careful assessment is very important.
4. Firm up your tummy
Are you finding it difficult to shift that post-pregnancy excess skin? Or have you recently lost a lot of weight and been left with an unwanted ‘apron’ around the middle?
If this sounds like you, a Tummy Tuck might be the way to go.
Tummy Tuck surgery is useful to re-contour the abdominal region following major weight loss. Or, for some us, the years have left us with this tell-tale little ‘spare tyre’ around the middle which we cannot get rid of, even with diet and exercise. During surgery, an incision is made from hip to hip above the pubic area, in line with the ‘bikini line’.
In our experience each one of these treatments have bought a tremendous amount of self-confidence is back to our patients. They report standing more upright, walking with more confidence, and feeling better about themselves. The physical improvement also leads to a psychological improvement. At Eden, we understand that everyone is different and what may work for one patient, won’t necessarily work for another. In many cases, we offer a blend of the treatments to achieve optimal results.
