Fat freezing for men in Singapore
When it comes to fat freezing treatments in Singapore – or even weight loss services in general – you may picture women-centric beauty centres for ladies looking to lose a few extra pounds. For men who are after the same goal, the choices may seem limited to dieting and hitting the gym.
The fact is, fat freezing for men exists, and Perfect Shape is a leading establishment from Hong Kong which specialises in the high-tech procedure. On behalf of the lads out there who might be apprehensive about how the process works, our colleague John was more than happy to volunteer as tribute.
Here’s the story of his journey to fight the flab, and how the fat freezing treatment helped nudge him along the path towards his dream physique once more. Read till the end to snag yourself an attractive promo to try this treatment yourself!
Gaining 15KG over five years & finding difficulty to shed the weight
Aged 31 this year, John remembers 2017 as the year his fitness was in its prime. He was consistently working out two to three times a week, and remembers being super lean and physically fit.
At its peak, John diligently attended training three times a week.

It certainly helped that he attended training for the sport of Ultimate Frisbee on a regular basis, and even went on occasional mountain climbing expeditions abroad.
As with many Singaporeans, John’s fitness slipped into the back-burner when he officially entered the workforce. It’s a struggle that many of us already stressed working adults face: when you feel too fatigued and lazy at the end of your 9-6, exercising just isn’t the number one priority.

Add to that a diet that isn’t exactly on the balanced side, and his weight gain started to snowball. In the past five years, John has piled on close to 15KG.

Not for lack of trying, as John has put in numerous attempts to shed some pounds – if not curb his weight from rising further. He’s given intermittent fasting a go, and also tried to kickstart the active workout routine he followed back in his mid-20s. Alas, he confesses that laziness always wins.
And with that, he jumped at the opportunity to let technology aid in his weight control. Especially when all he had to do was kick back and relax, and be able to wrap up his session in as little as 20 minutes.
Trying a fat freezing treatment for men to get back in shape

Measurements before the treatment to record John’s weight loss progress
If you’ve no clue what fat freezing is, you might be picturing your body fat getting frozen solid, and your silhouette magically becoming trim and slim. Rest assured that the process actually works in a high-tech and biologically safe and natural manner. And the best part is, there’s pretty much no pain or discomfort, and zero downtime.
Their CoolShaping fat freezing process starts with an in-depth consultation to understand your body type, health history, lifestyle, and weight concerns. This also ensures that the aesthetician in charge can advise a tailor-made treatment programme for you.
Now for the fun part: cooling gel sheets are first laid onto your treatment areas to protect your skin from drying out or getting frostbite. After all, extreme temperatures as low as -10°C will be applied to freeze those pesky fat cells of yours.
FYI: There are different sized applicators based on your frame and area of concern
The applicator acts as a vacuum to “suck” the targeted area for tight and specific spot reduction. Apart from belly fat, the CoolShaping fat freezing treatment can also be used to tackle the thighs, back, buttocks, and even chin. Yep, bye-bye double chin and hello to that chiselled jaw and V-shape look.
Low temperatures are applied to your flab, which will freeze the fat cells and enable your body to eliminate them naturally. That is, through sweat, pee, and going number-two. This gradual process takes time, so don’t expect to walk out of the centre having dropped a couple of kilos immediately.
Slight bruising is expected, but the aesthetician will massage the area delicately with lotion to promote blood circulation and moisturise the skin.
The treatment is reportedly able to help you lose fat in your areas of concern – which you can tackle at the same time within a single session – by up to 27% over time.
It’s suitable for those with busy schedules, as each session takes roughly 20 – 35 minutes. You’ll also be able to head home with no downtime or side effects to plan your schedule around.

While he’s aware that major results don’t come overnight, John shares that with more sessions, he can see how the treatment can help folks achieve their desired physique.
