Your Questions about 3D Lipo Answered
In our fast-paced lives, many of us have experienced the struggle of trying to shift a few pounds of extra weight. Sometimes, even going to the gym (when there’s time!) and being careful with what we eat won’t budge those last few pesky pounds.
Despite this, the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons report that during 2016 the number of Britons undergoing cosmetic surgery in 2016 was the lowest in nearly a decade. Could that be due to the rise of non-surgical treatments, such as 3D Lipo?
So, what is 3D Lipo?
As a treatment for non-surgical weight loss, 3D-Lipo allows you to target specific areas and problems, using four different types of treatment. This allows each individual to tailor the result they want, is pain free with instant results, no down time and is noticeable from the first session.
The treatment tackles three dimensions of body contouring; fat removal, skin tightening and cellulite reduction. The aim is to alter body shape, and the results are generally long-lasting, providing you maintain a healthy weight.
Which 3D Lipo Treatment is Right for Me?
There are four types of treatment available, each targeting a different end result. With this in mind, a good place to start is to think about what it is you’d like to achieve: is your main objective to reduce cellulite ahead of bikini season, or do you want to target that stubborn belly bulge that no amount of working out will get rid of? Once you know that, you can choose from the following options:
- Cavitation: The main tool for overall circumference reduction
- Cryolipolysis: Ideal for targeting specific problem areas for fat removal
- Radio Frequency: Skin tightening for face and body, and fat-melting for body
- 3D Dermology: Targets cellulite and aids lymphatic drainage

How effective is 3D Lipo?
In addition to providing instantly noticeable results, there are no after-effects, pain or downtime needed at all with 3D Lipo. What’s more, your consultant will listen to your areas of concern and tailor treatment specifically around achieving the end result you desire.
The length of time you’ll see results for is dependent on maintaining a healthy diet and regular exercise. The results are in fact permanent as long as the client’s weight stays the same and a healthy balanced lifestyle is maintained.
Results can be seen from treatment one with cavitation, with an average loss of 2-4cm; however, a course of 6-8 treatments is recommended for best results.
With Cryolipolysis, again the results are permanent as long as the clients' weight stays the same and a healthy balanced lifestyle is maintained however due to slower process results will show anywhere from 2 months-6 months post-treatment.
How much does it cost?
3D Lipo is a really cost effective alternative to the traditional (and invasive) liposuction. Depending on the area to be treated, the price is from £99.00 to £120.00 payable on the day of each treatment. The course is recommended for 8 weeks.
