Discover the new wave of non-surgical aesthetic procedures. Dr Galyna Selezneva reveals her top three body contouring treatments on the market – safe and clinically proven to remove the most stubborn fat – and why celebrities love them too.

Following a healthy lifestyle is now ‘in vogue’ and people are becoming more aware of the importance of a healthy, balanced diet and regular exercise. However, for many following a healthy, active lifestyle there are stubborn areas of fat that despite all efforts, seem impossible to lose. With non-invasive body contouring procedures, it is possible to contour and reduce areas of concern without surgery or downtime – perfect for people with busy lives!

The increase in social media has made it easier than ever to follow celebrities, many of who are leading the way with non-surgical aesthetic procedures. There is a lot of speculation about which treatments celebrities are having, the effectiveness, and safety, of these treatments.

Here are the body contouring treatments I offer, along with the clinically proven results they provide.

Top 3 body contouring treatments
Firstly, it is important to understand the importance of a healthy lifestyle. There is no such thing as a ‘quick fix’ and I work with my patients to understand their lifestyle and set realistic expectations. I regularly visit clinics in the US to discover the latest and most effective FDA approved treatments. The body contouring treatments I offer are carefully selected from the most reputable companies and provide the best results for my patients.

SculpSure explained:
What is it? The newest fat reduction treatment to the market; a 25-minute non-invasive laser liposuction treatment which has been clinically proven to permanently destroy up to 24% of treated fat cells. It is virtually painless and fast!

Who is the treatment suitable for? SculpSure is suitable for patients with a BMI under 25 with stubborn pockets of fat resistant to diet and exercise.

What areas can be treated? This is the best treatment for legs and flanks.

Coolsculpting explained:
What is it? The CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting.

What areas can be treated? The abdomen, arms and double chins.

Who is the treatment suitable for? CoolSculpting is for patients who want to eliminate fat.

Bonus point: The Kardashians, Jenifer Lopez and Christina Aguilera are rumoured to be huge fans of Coolsculpting.


What is it? VanquishME is a contactless radiofrequency treatment for visible fat reduction. Fat is selectively targeted and disrupted. This treatment has the largest spot size and covers the abdomen from flank to flank.

What areas can be treated? Abdomen

Who is the treatment suitable for? I often use VanquishME on male patients but the treatment is suitable for both male and females with stubborn abdomen fat.
