Healthy Weight Loss/Obesity Treatment
What is Obesity?
Obesity is excess deposition of body fat to the extent that it may have an adverse effect on health.
How do I know if I am obese?
- Obesity can be measured using BMI.
- BMI is calculated by dividing body weight (kilograms) by height (metres) squared.
- BMI= WEIGHT(KG) / HEIGHT(m)2
- World Health Organisation BMI classification system for adults
|BMI range (kg/m2)||Classification|
|18.5 - 24.9||Healthy weight|
|30 - 39.9||Obese|
|> 40||Morbidly obese|
What are types of fat?
Our body has 2 types of fat -
- Subcutaneous fat is found directly under the skin. It's the fat that's measured using skin-fold calipers to estimate your total body fat.
- This fat aids in the process of homeostasis, by forming a layer of insulation to slow heat loss.
Visceral Fat (Intra-abdominal fat)
- Visceral fat gets deposited around the inner organs like belly fat (stomach, liver, intestines, kidneys, etc.) and spells trouble for your health.
- It interferes with sugar metabolism & also increases blood cholesterol level.
- Visceral fat increases your risk for diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and even dementia.
What is my risk of getting diabetes or Heart disease?
As per WHO guidelines adult waist circumference cut points for risk calculation for Indians are:
Men </= 90cm (35.5")Women </= 80cm (31.5")
WHAT IS HEALTHY (scientific) WEIGHT LOSS?Healthy weight loss consists of-
- Reducing surface fat
- Reducing visceral fat
- Improving your muscle mass & metabolic rate
Recommended rate of scientific weight loss by WHO is 2-3 kgs/month.
How can Define Aesthetics help me to get Healthy weight loss?
We at Define Aesthetics understand the difference between obesity in India from the western world & the solutions we offer are customised for Indian population.
At Define Aesthetics every individual is carefully assessed by a team of doctors & nutritionist. Then a tailor made treatment plan is formed using combination of medically proven technologies based on the individual requirements. This helps in achieving optimum results for everyone.
Conventionally most clinics are offering Lipolysis alone as means of body fat reduction which reduces only surface fat. Some clinics use outdated muscle stimulators claiming to build muscles. Only at Define Aesthetics we are offer combination of scientific technologies like HIFU, Ion Magnum, radiofrequency & Acoustic wave.
This combination of technology used at Define Aesthetics reduces surface & visceral fat both & improves muscle mass. This guarantees healthy weight loss for everyone.
What happens to the fat?
With the unique treatment at Define Aesthetics, fat is lysed & also converted to ATP &metabolites, hence fat is excreted by body’s lymphatic & hepatic system & also burned down as the most preferred source for energy, giving safest & the permanent results.
How express are these results?
About 75% to 85% of the people will see immediate results & they appreciate results enhancing over a period of few days. 10 to 15% will see results in the week to come.
Is it SAFE?
These are both Non-invasive & safe technologies. Ion Magnum is an FDA approved revolutionary technology. It uses Nano-current & the waveforms similar to body's endogenous signals so the body accepts them well. Ultrasonic Lipolysis only targets fat cells without affecting other organs. There are absolutely NO SIDE EFFECTS
Are the results permanent?
New fat cells are not formed in body after maturity. Conventional methods of weight loss like exercise or diet only reduce size of fat cells. Many times people loose water weight which can be gained back easily. Ion Magnum reduces both surface & visceral fat & also builds muscles & improves muscle mass. This naturally increases metabolic rate which further initiates weight loss. HIFU treatment permanently destroys fat cells. Less fat cells means less space for body to deposit fat. If one follows a healthy lifestyle that we advise our patients; these results are permanent.
What precautions do I have to take before, during & after treatment?
During body fat reduction treatment with us your body is going to have readily usable metabolites of fat available for its functioning. We advice avoiding alcohol, excess of fat & low glycemic index foods like rice& drinking lot of water to help your body eliminate these metabolites faster.
