Treatment Options

Cosmos Clinic offers a variety of treatment options for Fat Reduction:

  • Vaser Hi Definition Liposuction:  is an advanced state-of-the-art ultrasound procedure combining technology with technique. Vaser Hi Definition 4D Liposuction allows the cosmetic surgeon to accurately and precisely sculpt the body for an athletic and sculpted look. A subset of Vaser Liposuction, the gentlest form of Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction (UAL), an ultrasound probe is inserted into the fat layer under the skin to separate the fatty tissue before it is removed.
  • Vaser Liposuction:  This advanced method of removing excess fat uses an ultrasound probe inserted under the skin to separate the fatty tissue before it is gently removed using suction. Vaser Liposuction is a plastic surgery procedure that contours the body and delivers smooth results to patients with unwanted areas of fat.
  • CoolSculpting:  is a non-invasive fat reduction procedure that ‘freezes’ away fat without cosmetic surgery. This offers minimal discomfort or pain, reduced recovery time, but also real results. CoolSculpting targets problematic areas with excessive body fat that cannot be removed with diet and exercise.
  • Tummy Tuck/ Abdominoplasty:  An operation designed to improve the appearance of the stomach area by removing excess skin whilst at the same time, tightening the abdominal muscles. The Tummy Tuck is ideal for women who have had pregnancies, those with loose skin due to weight loss or those who have not been able to lose excess weight through exercise and diet alone.
  • Breast Reduction:  is a form of fat removal that targets a specific treatment area, the breasts. With this surgical procedure, excess fatty tissue is removed from the breasts. This procedure is suitable for women who would like to reduce the size of their chest but do not require the removal of excess glandular tissue. The reduction is performed using Vaser Liposuction. The Vaser Liposuction Breast Reduction uses cutting-edge body sculpting technology to reshape and tighten the breasts without the need to remove any skin – resulting in virtually no scarring as a final result.
  • Fat Dissolving Injections:  is a fat removing procedure that includes the use a series of injections which destroy fat cells under the chin to improve your profile.
