What is obesity? 

The medical condition known as obesity is characterised by an abnormally high level of body fat. Having a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or greater is the standard definition.

Numerous health issues, such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke, can be brought on by obesity.

How does Obesity happen?

When the body consumes more calories than it expels through exercise and metabolism, obesity results. After that, the extra calories are turned into fat.
Numerous variables, including genetics, lifestyle choices, and certain medical disorders, can contribute to obesity over time.
While some people may develop obesity as a result of a sedentary lifestyle or a diet high in calories but poor in nutrients, others may do so due to a genetic predisposition to gain weight more easily.
Obesity and weight gain can also be caused by specific medical diseases such as hypothyroidism and Cushing’s syndrome.

Non aesthetic treatment for obesity

Lifestyle modifications

This entails adopting a balanced diet, upping physical activity levels, and carrying out other lifestyle modifications to support weight loss.

Prescription drugs

Several drugs, including orlistat, liraglutide, and phentermine-topiramate, can aid with weight loss.

Weight loss surgery

By reducing the size of the stomach or redirecting the small intestine to a small stomach pouch, bariatric surgery, also referred to as weight-loss surgery, encompasses a number of treatments such the Gastric Bypass, Sleeve Gastrectomy, and Gastric Banding.

Coolsculpting Treatment Fat freezing Technology 

Cryolipolysis, another name for fat freezing technology, is a non-invasive process that targets and gets rid of fat cells in particular bodily parts. It is not regarded as a therapy for obesity as a whole; rather, it is used to treat stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
A device is applied to the body part being treated during a fat freezing treatment, which uses controlled cooling to destroy the fat cells beneath the skin. The body ultimately eliminates the fat cells naturally as a result of the crystallization and death of the fat cells brought on by the cold temperature. No anesthesia is needed, and the process usually takes 1-2 hours per treatment area.
Although localized fat reduction with fat freezing may be successful, it cannot replace diet and exercise-based weight loss. It’s crucial for people thinking about fat freezing to be healthy and stable in their weight and to have hopes for the procedure’s outcomes that aren’t unrealistic. Additionally, people with certain medical conditions, such as cryoglobulinemia or cold agglutinin disease, might not be a good candidate for the operation.
At EHA Clinic, we provide Fat Freezing treatments through CoolSculpt.

High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound Therapy

The ultrasound energy used is entirely focused on the determined areas, at 1.3cm beneath the surface of the skin. As the dead fat cells will have to be metabolised by your body, the actual results that can be gained from the Liposonix treatment are only apparent after a few months.
At EHA Clinic, we utilize Liposonix  to obtain the desirable results.

HIFEM Treatment

High-intensity electromagnetic energy is used in HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) technology, a non-invasive technique, to stimulate muscle contractions in specific bodily parts. It can be used as a treatment for toning and strengthening muscles, including those in the abdomen and buttocks, even though it is not intended to address obesity.
A device is applied to the body part being treated to transfer focused electromagnetic energy to the underlying muscle tissue. The rapid and powerful contractions brought about by this energy can help the muscle over time become stronger and more toned. Patients can resume their regular activities right away after treatment because the procedure is usually painless and doesn’t require anesthesia.
At EHA Clinic, we utilize EMSculpt for our HIFEM Treatments.
