One of the most common areas that Cryolipolysis is used to treat is the abdomen. Cryolipolysis targets stubborn areas of fat, and the stomach is one area where stubborn areas of fat love to lurk! 
This guide details six considerations that you should know about using Cryolipolysis to target tummy fat. 

Number of treatments 

In many cases, it will take more than one treatment to achieve the desired results. 
Cryolipolysis works by freezing, and therefore, killing fat cells. A single treatment can produce a 25% reduction in fatty deposits. The full effects can take 120 days to become apparent. This is because of the time taken for the body’s natural processes to flush the cells from the system. 
However, as we all know, fat isn’t obliging enough to spread itself evenly across the stomach. This means that for even sculpting to be achieved, then areas like the lower abdomen, which are usually fattier, may require more treatment. 
The number of treatments required varies on individual circumstances, and this factor is discussed at the consultation stage. 

If you can pinch an inch – Cryolipolysis is perfect 

Although it is not a comprehensive test by any manner or means, being able to pinch tummy fat means that Cryolipolysis may be the fat-buster you are looking for. 
Cryolipolysis is perfect for targeting “pinchable fat”. Pinchable, or “subcutaneous fat” to give its proper name, is highly susceptible to the cold temperatures of Cryolipolysis treatment. 
Although this is a great way of making a quick determination of Cryolipolysis’s suitability, a consultation is still required before any treatment to assess suitability as other factors can affect this, including: 
Fat type – Cryolipolysis doesn’t work on visceral fats. These are deep-lying and harder fats than subcutaneous fat. 
Diastasis Recti – This is a condition in which there is a partial or complete muscle separation in the abdomen. 

The whole body should be considered 

Because Cryolipolysis is so efficient at removing stubborn fat, the treatment can result in a “shelved” look in cases where the treatment doesn’t consider the overall result. 
For instance, treating the lower abdomen will not only reduce the fat in that area but will also act to highlight fatter areas in the upper abdomen that weren’t so prominent before the treatment. 
That’s why a skilled practitioner will always consider not just the specific problem area but also how the overall result will affect other areas. During the consultation process, this will be discussed to determine the best way forward to achieve your goals and any areas that should be included to complement the desired treatment. 

Cryolipolysis isn’t a weight-loss treatment 

A common misconception is that Cryolipolysis is a treatment for weight loss. Cryolipolysis is perfect for targeting stubborn areas of fat that methods like dieting and exercise have failed to shift but isn’t ideal as a weight-loss therapy. 
Ideal candidates for Cryolipolysis will be within 20 to 30lbs of their target weight and be good overall health. For those that are above this threshold, then a diet and exercise regime to bring the weight down to ideal levels may well be recommended to allow effective treatment. 

Both men and women can benefit from abdominal Cryolipolysis 

Another misconception is that Cryolipolysis works best on women. Whilst it is the case that men have more visceral fat that Cryolipolysis can’t treat, most men also have pockets of pinchable subcutaneous fat that can be successfully treated. 
There is no reason that Cryolipolysis treatment is restricted by gender. The important factors are the type of fat that is requiring treatment and the client’s goals. Ultimately, the suitability for treatment is considered on a case-by-case basis. 

The use of different applicator types may be necessary 

During the consultation process, the practitioner will determine which type of applicator or applicators will be best suited for the case. 
This could mean that certain areas will be treated by different applicators. 
This is quite normal, as there is no “fat-busting” template that works for everyone. The applicators used depend on where the fat is located, how much there is to be treated, and how the fat presents itself. 


If you are someone that can pinch an inch, are within 30lbs of your ideal weight, and are in good overall health, then Cryolipolysis might just be the answer you are looking for. Whether you are looking to add some finishing touches to a weight-loss regime, or just want a more sculpted look, then Cryolipolysis is proven to deliver results.
