Buccal Fat Removal Side Effects:
1) You will feel full sooner.
After your first few days of using bucbal fat removal cream, you may feel very full and bloated. However, after several weeks or months of use, you won’t even notice any changes in your stomach size. Your body will adjust to the new way of eating and it’s natural weight loss process.
2) You will lose some hair.
The most common side effect is losing some hair. There are many reasons why you might experience this problem such as:
a) Your scalp is not properly prepared for the procedure. Some people have small bald patches at the time they start their treatment. Other times, there are other problems with their skin such as eczema or psoriasis which causes them to suffer from itching and burning sensations when they apply the cream regularly.
b) You don’t rinse off the cream well enough. Rinse off the cream too quickly and you could cause irritation and dryness.
c) You didn’t wash your face thoroughly enough. If you haven’t washed your face thoroughly, then the cream could leave streaks on your cheeks that look like little hairs. These streaks will make it hard to distinguish between what part of your face is yours and what isn’t.
3) Your acne may worsen.
When you start your treatment, your skin may get worse before it gets better. Your skin is basically getting used to the treatment and detoxifying itself.
4) You won’t lose weight in other parts of your body.
Some people think that they’ll lose weight in their arms and legs if they use the cream. This is not true. The only place you’ll lose weight is around the jawline and face.
5) You can’t eat large meals anymore.
You’ll only be able to eat small portions of food after your treatment. Many people think that this is a side effect, but it’s actually recommended in order to avoid getting stuffed or feeling sick after eating large meals. If you’re like most people, then you probably didn’t even realize that this was common sense!
6) You can’t eat after a certain time at night.
Most people find that they can’t eat any solid foods after a certain time at night. If they do, then they’ll probably suffer from heartburn, bloating, stomach aches and other issues the next day.
7) You’ll feel fuller quicker when you eat.
After your treatment, you’ll feel full a lot quicker than before. If you eat too much food during a meal, then you’ll start to feel sick. This is not a “side effect” of the treatment.
It’s your body’s natural reaction to getting fuller quicker.
8) You can’t eat any types of food anymore.
Some people eat less during their treatment, but they don’t realize that they’re actually changing their eating habits for the rest of their life. If you quit the treatment before you reach your desired weight, then you might go back to your old eating habits. If you do this then you’re more likely to gain weight again.
9) Your diet won’t stay at your desired weight.
Once you reach your goal weight, you may think that you can eat what you used to eat and keep the weight off. This is unfortunately not true. If you return to your old eating habits, then your weight will gradually start to increase again no matter what you do.
The most common side effects of this treatment are minor and shouldn’t cause a great deal of concern. They can usually be fixed by simply adjusting your diet or by taking a trip to the doctor.
The most common side effects that people experience during this treatment are:
1) You become insanely hungry after meals.
Even if you’ve just eaten a meal and feel full, you can suddenly develop an intense hunger within a few hours of eating. Sometimes the hunger doesn’t come until much later (6+ hours). This feeling of hunger can also happen at night time too.
2) You have a strong feeling of exhaustion or fatigue.
This feeling can make you feel incredibly drained or sapped of energy. You may not feel like doing much outside of your normal routine and you may need to take naps during the day.
3) You become constipated.
This is fairly uncommon, but some people do develop issues with passing stools. If this happens to you, then you need to increase your intake of dietary fiber. You can do this by adding more fruits, vegetables and whole grains into your diet.
4) You become slightly dizzy.
Some people feel like they’re in a fog or their head is faint and dizzy. This usually passes after a few days or so. If it doesn’t then you should get it checked out by a doctor.
5) Your tongue becomes blue or black.
This is more common with people that are severely overweight. It happens because the fat that you’ve lost starts to collect in your mouth and on your tongue. In order to avoid this side effect, you can either rinse your mouth out with water after eating or you can use a tongue scraper to remove the excess coating from your tongue.
There are also some serious potential side effects of this treatment. It’s important that you make sure to visit your doctor or physician before beginning this treatment. It’s also very important that you stay with the treatment, even if you begin to feel sick.
If you abandon the treatment, then you may put all the weight back on again. When starting any diet plan or treatment for obesity, it’s always important that you consult with your doctor first and that both you and your doctor are aware of your complete medical history.
Some of the serious side effects of this treatment are:
1) You feel sick.
Although this isn’t the most common side effect, some people do feel nauseous or like they’re going to be sick when they begin this treatment. It’s usually due to the rapid changes that your body is going through and can often be alleviated by taking things slowly at the start.
2) You become severely dehydrated.
Your body may begin to excrete an unusual amount of fluids due to the rapid weight loss. It’s important that you drink lots of water to avoid dehydration. You can also buy electrolyte or rehydration sachets from your pharmacy to add to the water.
3) Your heart begins to race or beat irregularly.
If you begin to experience an increased heart rate, then you need to get this checked out by a doctor immediately. It’s possible that your heart is struggling to keep up with the rapid weight loss and this needs to be addressed.
4) You become confused or deluded.
Sometimes people begin to suffer from confusion or problems with thinking clearly. This can often be temporary and is most likely due to the changes taking place within the brain. It should resolve itself after a short while, but if it persists or gets worse, then you need to get this checked out by a doctor.
5) You become severely anemic.
Your body is losing blood at a rapid rate due to the diarrhea and this can lead to anemia. It’s very important that you increase your intake of foods that are high in iron and also see a doctor to discuss the best course of treatment for your problem.
It’s also important that you don’t use any old supplement. Many of them are fake and don’t contain the ingredient that they state. Instead, visit a doctor or a naturopath to discuss what the best course of action for you is.
Make sure that you always consult with a medical professional before using this weight loss treatment.
