Fat Freezing Suitability

Is fat freezing suitable for you?

Fat freezing is a safe, non-invasive alternative to treatments such as liposuction.


Even though there is very little risk associated with fat freezing, the treatment may not be suitable for everyone. Unfortunately some medical conditions or temporary circumstances will exclude you from being able to have fat freezing treatment.


Fat freezing consultation


Before we get started with the treatment we will speak about what you want to achieve and assess your medical history to ensure that fat freezing treatment is safe and suitable for you. 

You do not need a consultation prior to booking your fat freezing appointment. However, if you are not sure about whether fat freezing is suitable for you due to certain health conditions then please do book in a consultation first or send a message through the contact page.
