When it comes to body contouring there are a variety of different treatments and procedures about that claim to tackle the issue.
Vaser Liposuction is a minimally invasive treatment aimed at contouring and shaping the body. Usually performed under local anaesthetic with the option of sedation, the process involves making small incisions in the area to be treated before small probes are then inserted and used to transmit the ultrasound energy and liquefy fat cells prior to removal via a gentle suction process.
The Private Clinic’s Doctors have performed over 7,000 VASER Liposuction treatments to date, more than any other clinic in Europe. We were the first clinic to launch Vaser in the UK.
CoolSculpting/ Fat Freezing / Cryolipolysis
CoolSculpting is more commonly referred to as fat freezing which is essentially the aim of the procedure. CoolSculpting works by delivering carefully controlled cooling which targets the fat cells underneath the skin. Post-treatment your body will begin to naturally process and eliminate the dead fat cells which reduce the number of fat cells in your body.
CoolSculpting is an FDA approved treatment for treating fat with over 7 million treatments carried out worldwide. CoolSculpting is offered at The Private Clinic in collaboration with world expert, Dr Tracy Mountford, MBBS MBCAM (GMC Number: 3085451). All of our practitioners have been to CoolSculpting University and have been personally trained by Dr Tracy Mountford who is the only UK doctor on the International Allergan CoolSculpting faculty.
CoolSculpting Fat Freezing treatment is available in London, Devonshire place which is just a short 5 minute walk from our London Harley Street clinic, Buckinghamshire in Stoke Poges, Manchester and Leeds. CoolSculpting will also be coming soon to our Bristol clinic. Free patient advisor consultations for this treatment will be available in Northampton, Milton Keynes and Birmingham.
