Im SO excited to write this blog!!! And I know those of you reading this – like always – are following my instagram and probably have just swiped up on my stories – so you KNOW what i’m writing about …
So when I got back from LA 3 months ago I came back 3 kgs heavier – i always do, the food is just different or maybe i snack more as i’m working remotely from home. Anyway, due to this and honestly due to always having stubborn pieces of fat that just WONT budge, i knew it was time to finally do something about it – and for me, on those areas, lipo and surgery just isn’t an option! FAR TO INVASIVE for a little banana roll and cellulite. So, I went and had a consultation with the amazing girls at Body Scultpting Clinics, located in Surry Hills, in Oxford Village.
“Even the best lifestyle incorporating a good diet and a disciplined exercise routine is sometimes not enough to give your body the look you desire. This is generally due of stubborn pockets of fat.”
Now you’ll soon see in my before pictures, i’ve ALWAYS had a banana roll – what is a ‘banana roll’? Its that piece of fat thats on your upper thigh directly below the crease of your butt! I can always GRAB mine in a full fist! Now i train my butt off, at least 5 classes a week and cardio. And i’m usually super strict with my diet and yet …. I guess we all have little areas that just wont budge.
As you can see from the Body Sculpting Clinics website they offer a number of different medical grade treatments for fat loss, and to help prevent cellulite and tighten skin etc. Until recently the only way to reduce these issues has been through surgery – which can be painful, expensive, time consuming and potentially dangerous.
Now i’ve done my research and the Body Sculpting Clinics team use the latest scientifically proven technologies, to give you the same results, but without the drawbacks.
Body Sculpting Clinics use technology that is TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) approved. TGA is part of the Australian Government Department of Health and is responsible for regulating therapeutic goods including medical devices.
The team and lovely manager Nicki decided on an 8 week program. Cryolipolysis to target my banana toll and fat around my upper knees – this is hereditary so thanks mamma!
How It Works ….
This unique non-invasive treatment uses a combination of electro and cryo therapy.
Cryolipolysis specifically targets fat cells and lowers their temperature to between -6 to -9 degrees causing them to crystalize. No other structures are affected by this process. Using medical grade technology, the cells are chilled to the point where the body’s natural “apoptosis” processes are triggered, gradually collecting these damaged fat cells and eliminating them from the body. The remaining content of the fat cells is disposed of naturally through the body’s lymphatic system. The results are proven, long lasting and noticeable.

Non Surgical Alternative To Liposuction
Cryolipolysis, commonly known as ‘fat freezing’, is a non-surgical alternative used to reduce specific areas of fat. Cyrolipolysis is a proven method of fat reduction which has been subject to clinical trials and scientific studies and has been proven to kill fat cells in each session in the treated area.
The procedure lasts for an hour and is most often used for permanent reduction of stubborn fat pockets and for general body sculpting.
Unlike laser liposuction which has little to no effect on destroying fat cells, or surgical liposuction which is an extreme treatment and an inherently invasive procedure with surgical risk, potential for adhesions, prolonged down time, possible scarring and post procedure pain, cryolipolyisis has little to no downtime and is an ideal walk in walk out treatment.
Ok so here is my before and after where you can see i had the banana roll before (image to the left) with a little cellulite over the top! AS you can see i’m far from perfect and most definetely only human! Im seeing the results below – 9 weeks post treatment and full results can be seen up to 12 weeks!
So the 2 cryo sessions were done prior to my Maldives trip a few days apart as they were on different areas. And then there was the dreaded C word to deal with …. CELLULITE!! Now you can’t actually remove it without surgery but you can diminish the look of it ….. and i’m so happy with my results!
Non Invasive, Medical Grade Cellulite Treatments
The vast majority of women have, or will develop, cellulite. It is caused by a range of factors, many out of an individual’s control. It occurs when fat breaks through connective tissue, causing the skin above to pucker. There are many myths about how and why cellulite is formed. Cellulite is more closely related to hormones, exercise and physical activity and is not only prevalent with overweight people. Cellulite does not necessarily disappear with weight loss. Cellulite is located in the upper level of the skin which is why fatty tissue and volume are reduced but cellulite does not always disappear. Cellulite is a difficult to treat condition and there is no procedure on the market that can effectively remove all cellulite, however we can visibly reduce the appearance of cellulite using a combination of medical grade technologies to treat the area. And thats what we have acheived with my goals ….
Instant Centimeter Loss
Ultrasound fat cavitation uses low frequency ultrasound to subject fat cell membranes to a strong wave of pressure. The cell structure cannot withstand this pressure and disintegrates into a liquid state. The ultrasound wave creates a vibration within the fat layer. The fat cells do not have the structural capacity to withstand this vibration and the cell membrane will very quickly break down. This treatment is ideal for patients that have approximately 3cm of fat or more and require an instant reduction. When combined with permanent fat reduction techniques cavitation can produce some incredible results.
How It Works
During the fat cavitation treatment membranes fat cells need to survive are disrupted. You will hear a buzzing sound in your ears. The content of the fat cell, which is primarily comprised of triglycerides, is dispersed into the fluid between the cells and transported through the vascular and lymphatic systems to the liver in a natural metabolic process. The liver makes no distinction between fat coming from the cavitation treatment and fat originating from consumed food and processes the material using the body’s normal mechanisms.
Focus Fractional RF For Cellulite
RF penetrates the skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue and the extra cellular matrix where the collagen fibres are embedded. RF technology heats collagen fibres causing them to immediately contract. At the same time it accelerates production of new collagen and elastin fibres which leads to a smoother look and feel.
How It Works
RF works by selectively increasing the temperature of the fat cells, both those that have broken through connective tissue to form cellulite and those at a deeper level.After the treatment the fat cells size has been physically reduced restoring the skin closer to its original form reducing the appearance of cellulite.
I KNOW i’ve given you way too much info but its really important to me that in changing my body, i can be as educational as possible. I cant stress how important it is to do your research and see a reputable clinic.
