Ok, so this is my third pure gym in the uk. I am going back to the review of the Edinburgh one because I may have been harsh. These gyms are convenient, low cost and best of all no contract Pros No contract (great for travelers like me) Lots of machines (power plates) Cons Stupid tvs everywhere playing crap music videos No sanitary wipes All in all good experience!
"I would like to say it is ready to replace liposuction, but it's not -- yet," he says. Still it does have certain benefits over liposuction namely that a person can have the treatment and go to lunch afterward, Fodor says. Unlike liposuction, the new technology does not involve pain, scars, anesthesia, or a long recovery time. Only some topical anesthesia is used, he says.
In recent years, CoolSculpting has become one of the most popular nonsurgical alternatives to liposuction. This procedure utilizes cryolipolysis technology to freeze fat cells, causing them to wither and die. Your body will then safely remove these dead fat cells, leaving you with a more toned, sculpted figure. Dr. Fitzgerald can use CoolSculpting to remove targeted pockets of fat in many areas of your body, including your:
The best way to determine whether you’re fit for undergoing body sculpting without surgery is to consult the physician directly. There are two types of fat present in a human body. The first type is called visceral fat. This fat is present deep inside the muscle tissues and are not soft or pinchable. The other type is called subcutaneous fat. This kind of fat is present above the muscle and are really soft and pinchable. Subcutaneous fat can be easily removed using non-invasive techniques like laser contouring. However, if you are someone who carries a lot of visceral fat, you will need to take the long road and exercise to get a perfectly toned body.
Fodor is more enthusiastic about the LipoSonix technology. "I am very optimistic," he says." I love the results," he says citing as much as a 7-centimeter reduction in waist circumference seen in clinical trials conducted in Mexico. This technology, which uses high-intensity ultrasound waves, beamed about an inch under the skin to break up fatty tissue, has been studied in both pig models and in 33 people in Mexico, he says. The company has applied for FDA status to begin preclinical studies in the U.S. and expects such trials to begin in 2007.
