My Trips to the Hospital

Hi, I'm Cari. When I was a teenager, my best friend Claire's mom got cancer. I started offering to take Deb (the mom) to the hospital for her treatments to help give the family a break. They had all been in and out of the hospital so much, and since I'm basically family to them, it was nice to support Deb and Claire. Not to mention, I was able to learn a lot about different medical topics just be listening and watching while waiting in the hospital. It was fascinating. To everyone's joy, after a long and hard two years, Deb finally beat cancer! I decided to start this blog as a memorial to all those who have struggled with health problems and as a resource to for anyone who needs to know more about hospitals and treatments.



Lipoglaze : A New And Noninvasive Procedure That Removes Stubborn Fat From Your Body Without Surgery

Liposuction is a plastic surgery procedure that removes fat from your body with the use of cannula tubes. Your surgeon inserts the tubes through small cuts on your skin and then suctions out fat through the tubes from specific fat deposit areas. Now, there is a newer form of liposuction called Lipoglaze that is being used by plastic surgeons. Lipoglaze uses noninvasive cryogenic lipolysis to remove stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to dieting or exercise programs. You can reportedly have fat deposits reduced in your treated area within 48 hours, which experts explain can be achieved depending on how fast your body can remove frozen cells.

How Does Cryogenic Lipolysis Work?

Your surgeon uses this new method to gently warm up the area to be treated. That activity causes blood and fat to separate. Cryotherapy is then used to freeze away the fat cells without the use of a surgical knife. Once the fat cells are separated, they are permanently destroyed. Industry experts claim that 30 to 40 percent of fat in the targeted area is completely removed in one treatment session. The treatment takes place in approximately one hour. The really cool thing about lipoglaze treatments is that you do not feel any effects from the fat cells that are being crystallized and broken down during the procedure. They completely go away without your knowledge.

How Did This Science Develop?

The science of cryogenic lipolysis came about after scientists floated the hypothesis that if a patient's body temperature is reduced in areas of fat cells, then a formation of ice crystals takes place. The ice crystals would cause cell death that is known as apoptosis, the scientists claimed. The hypothesis became a reality, and cryogenic lipolysis became a reality. It is often referred to as cryotherapy and has been approved for usage by the Federal Drug Administration.

You may be curious enough to ask your surgeon why in the first place does your body store fat and where on your body does the fat collect and remain. By knowing about body fat being stored in a particular area of your body, you can begin decreasing your amount of fat storage. Obtaining this information and working to eliminate the fat storage will help you to avoid more cryotherapy treatments. You will have to make lifestyle changes in order to achieve the goal of decreasing your storage fats.

Learn About Diet And Exercise Options

Your surgeon will give you advice about how you can maintain your new-look body following cryotherapy treatment. You can also obtain valuable nutrition and exercise advice from your primary care physician or a licensed nutritionist. Such information ultimately helps you stay on the right track following your procedure.
