How To Get Rid Of Fats?

Stubborn fats have always been the enemy of a beautiful figure. Your weight is perfectly healthy. Overall, you have a slim and slender shape. But there are always certain areas that look a little larger than they should.

Your chin may not be as slender as you like. Or your love handles might be stretching your favourite top too hard.

The most frustrating thing about stubborn fats is that they ruin an otherwise great figure.

However, there is no need to worry. There are many ways to get rid of these stubborn fats.

Exercise And Dieting

The most obvious solution to get rid of these fats is implementing a rigorous exercise regime and diet. You have to count your calorie intake carefully.

Monitor everything you eat and record it down. At the same time, you need to increase your output as well. Exercises are great for this. They have other health benefits and make you happier overall, but in this case, it is an essential tool in burning off fats.

But sometimes, the stubborn fats doesn’t listen.

But despite all that effort, you still might not be able to get rid of your stubborn fats because some of these areas are resistant to diet and exercise. Or it might be a particular problem area for you.

And that is when fat-removal treatments come in.

What Are Fat-Removal Treatments?

These treatments specialize in removing fats that are hard to do so naturally. They are the enemies of stubborn fats. And as the old saying goes, “The enemy of my enemy is my friend”.

There are numerous types of fat-removal treatments in the current market. Some of them focus on weight loss, while some focus on shaping the body. Some will require surgery, and some will be completely non-invasive.

Let’s look at a few treatments that can get rid of those stubborn fats.


CoolSculpting is a more recent type of fat-removal treatment. Like many contemporary cosmetic treatments, it needs no surgery.

CoolSculpting belongs to a group of fat loss treatments known as fat-freezing.

Fat-freezing treatments typically place a device known as an applicator over the targeted areas. The applicator lowers the temperature of the targeted area. This rapid cooling process then proceeds to kill the fat cells.

This process is known as cryolipolysis.

The great thing about this device is how it sets the temperature at a level that only affects fat cells. Different cells in the body die at different temperatures. The set temperate of CoolSculpting ensures that only fat cells are chilled and killed.

Dead fat cells will then be removed naturally by your own body’s natural cleansing system. There is no recovery period needed for this treatment.

Treatment Areas: 

  • Under the chin and jawline
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Flanks or love handles
  • Bra fat
  • Back fat
  • Underneath the buttocks and upper arms

Treatment Time: Depends on the area treated and the applicator used. It should take less than an hour.

Average Number Of Treatments: 2-3 treatments to see the best results.

Experience During treatment: You may experience a sensation of cold and a tugging feeling.

Downtime: No downtime is required, and you may return to your normal daily activities immediately following treatment.

Side effects: Mild tingling, tenderness, numbing, bruising, redness. Will subside within 1 – 2 days.

When Will I See Results? Typically, you can see the best results within 8 – 12 weeks after the treatment.

Pricing: $387 per session

CoolSculpting is a great way to get rid of some fat cells permanently without the need for any invasive surgeries. It is a comfortable treatment. It is so comfortable that you can lie back and read a book while the treatment is ongoing.

It relies in a unique but well-tested principle of cryolipolysis. Yes, it may require a few sessions, but it is usually worth the tradeoff due to its high efficiency, lack of downtime, and relatively safe and painless process.

If you are looking at a more aggressive and quicker working treatment, you might want to consider one of the most famous fat removal treatments.


Anyone who has been looking for fat loss treatments will have come across Liposuction. Without a doubt, Liposuction is one of the most popular and easily understood fat removal treatments out there.

For those who don’t know about it, Liposuction is a surgical procedure in which a doctor reshapes your body by removing excess fat. The process is a simple one. A doctor makes keyholes incisions on your body and then suctions out the fats in and around the incision.

And hence the name, Liposuction. As in quite literally, fat suctioning.

Treatment Areas:

  • Thighs
  • Hips and buttocks
  • Abdomen and waist
  • Upper arms
  • Back
  • Inner knee
  • Chest area
  • Cheeks, chin and neck
  • Calves and ankles

Treatment Duration: 1-2 hours per treated area

Average Number Of Treatments: Usual a single session.

Experience During Treatment: Before the surgery, the surgical team will put you under general anaesthesia. So you will not feel pain during the process. However, most people feel some pain post-surgery.

Downtime: You will feel pain for 1-2 weeks, depending on the extensiveness of the surgery. The doctors will prescribe painkillers to relieve the pain. You will be required to wear tight compression garments for few weeks to months. It is likely to take you up to 2-4 weeks to resume strenuous activities.

Side Effects: Numerous side effects and risks such as damage to nerves, persistent swelling.

When Will You See Results? Manifest within 4-12 weeks

Pricing: $1,500 – $2,800 for each body part area. Surgeons usually perform on a minimum of 5 body part areas, ranging from $7,500 – $14,000 and upwards in total.

There is no doubting that Liposuction is one of the more common, well tested and highly effective fat removal treatments out there.

However, since it is a surgical treatment, it comes with risks of complications. Coupled with the cost and downtime, it becomes a costly treatment, both in terms of time and money.

Liposuction is likely to work for those who can afford the downtime to recover from the procedure. And who are relatively ok to suffer a little bit of pain.

While Liposuction and CoolSculpting are 2 of the more well-known treatments, there are other treatments you can try if you are looking to reduce some stubborn fats or looking to combat the effects of rapid fat loss.

Magnetic RF Slimming

Magnetic Radiofrequency (RF) treatment is a treatment that reduces the appearance of being flabby. The treatment works by restoring your skin’s elasticity and eliminate unsightly flabbiness and cellulite.

The treatment uses RF to heat the deeper layers in the skin. This causes the skin to produce more collagen. Collagen plays an essential part in the skin’s structure.

The heat also shrinks fat cells and stimulates blood circulation. The circulation will help to drain fatty deposits and toxins found in the targeted area.

Treatment Areas:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Hands
  • Cleavage

Treatment Duration: 30 – 45 minutes

Average Number Of Treatments: 3 – 8 sessions depending on skin type. 3 – 4 weeks apart.

Experience During Treatment: You will feel a warm sensation in the treated areas. You may also feel some tingling sensation due to the magnetic waves. There is no pain during treatment.

Downtime: There is zero downtime after the treatment.

Side Effects: temporary redness and tingling sensation may be seen and felt. These will all subside in few hours to 1 day.

When Will You See Results? Within 4 weeks. We recommend going for maintenance sessions every 6 months.

Pricing: $1440 per package (8 sessions)

iLipo Laser Slimming + Caffeine Fat Burning Ampoule

iLipo Laser Slimming is a non-surgical and non-invasive alternative to Liposuction.

This process aims to mimic the photo-bio-modulation process of your body. Infra-red lights are known to increase metabolism and assists cells in emptying their fat content.

The treatment uses a cold laser to target fat cells, which then stimulates your body’s natural process for breaking down and releasing the content of fat cells.

The emptied fat cell content then naturally leaves your body.

As a step to speed up the clearing process, a vacuum massage will follow the laser treatment. This massage also assists in promoting collagen growth and reducing cellulite which helps in tightening the skin.

Treatment Areas:

  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Waist
  • Hips
  • Thighs

Treatment Duration: About 1 hour

Average Number Of Treatments: You may need up to 6 sessions. The actual number of sessions is dependent on your body type.

Ultra Slim Cavitation

Ultra Slim Cavitation is a non-surgical and non-invasive body contouring treatment.

It uses a method known as ultrasonic lipolysis. Ultrasonic lipolysis is the process of using ultrasound waves to break apart fat cells in your skin.

These broken-down cells, which are now considered waste by your body, are naturally removed.

  • Hips
  • Thighs

When Will You See Results? Within a week after the 1st session.

This treatment only works on small target areas of fat. It is more of a contouring treatment. It is rarely suitable for helping you release large amounts of fat from your body.

With these many treatments available, which should you pick?

There is no one size fits all solution for anyone, unfortunately. It all depends on your needs.

While we offer most of the treatments listed here, CoolSculpting seems to be one of the more popular ones.

It checks off all the major boxes.

It is safe.

It is clinically tested.

It is almost painless.

It is affordable.

And it has zero downtime.

With multiple clinical studies backing up the effectiveness of CoolSculpting, it is hard to stray away from this non-invasive option.

Data shows that CoolSculpting can reduce up to 25% fat. And the effects will remain visible after six months.

The treatment is safe and painless. There are little to no long term side effects as well.

CoolSculpting is the perfect way to get rid of those stubborn fats so that you can get the body shape you deserve.

But it may not be the perfect solution for you. Or in some cases, CoolSculpting can be paired with other treatments to increase its effectiveness.

It is best to come on down for a free consult with our clinicians. That way, we can consider all factors before recommending the best fat-removal treatment for you.

One last thing before we go…

While most of these fat loss treatments offer a long term and even permanent solution to your stubborn fat problem, these cannot improve your health or keep you in shape on their own.

As mentioned initially, a good exercise and diet regime will go a long way in losing unwanted fats and keeping the removed fats from coming back. Take a holistic approach, and you will notice that you stay shapely for a long time after CoolSculpting or any other treatments.
