Fat Freezing – Catherine Landsdale 28, Maidenhead, Berks.
Catherine came to Springwell Clinic after reading about fat freezing. Despite being very fit and a gym bunny she had a soft tummy that just wouldn’t go whatever exercise she did. Although a slim size 8 she was getting married in 7 weeks and didn’t like how her stomach showed in her wedding dress.
Fat freezing is an ideal non-invasive treatment for stubborn areas of fat but at Springwell Clinic, we always advise people that results are not seen until 8-12 weeks after treatment, but some people can see the difference earlier.
Catherine decided to go ahead with the treatment – she was advised that she would probably only need one treatment as she should see a reduction of 25-30% but we would review her at 12 weeks and decide if a further treatment was required for best results. We took before photos and weighed her and then an anti-freeze sheet was applied to her skin to prevent the surface skin from freezing ensuring only the target fat cells are treated. These fat cells are digested slowly by the body and although we advise a healthy diet and to maintain the same or less weight there is nothing else she would need to do but be patient! The treatment takes 45 mins and is very comfortable. The skin is pink and cold to the touch afterwards and then all that is required is patience which is often the hardest part for all of us. Catherine had only 7 weeks until her wedding so we under promised her results but luckily for her, she had a fantastic result in time.

“My tummy has bothered me since I was a teenager. I am a size 8 and am happy with my size apart from my tummy which just wouldn’t go despite me exercising 3-4 times a week. I went to New York with my fiancé, as he ran the New York Marathon, and went wedding dress shopping while I was there. I found my perfect dress but they took some photos of me in it and all I could see was my tummy.
When I got back to England, I did some research and thought that fat freezing would be the answer especially as I was too nervous to go under a general anaesthetic for liposuction. They were so friendly at Springwell Clinic and I wasn’t made to feel stupid for wanting it done. The treatment felt a little strange as it was very cold and pulled a little (which I was told to expect) but after 15 mins I couldn’t feel anything and it was very relaxing.
I was made aware that I might not get the result in time for the wedding as I hadn’t left enough time but it was fine and the photo I took on my honeymoon in my bikini, shows the result. I’m so pleased but am thinking about another treatment to see if I can get an even better result.”
