A mother of three has revealed how she lost 3.5 inches of belly fat in just six weeks – after a decade of unsuccessful exercise.
Kirsty O’Keefe, 50, from London, found it ‘impossible’ to change her post-baby weight after having her third child, aged 40, no matter how hard she worked.
As she approached her 50th birthday, she wanted to celebrate with a group holiday to a warm country, but was aware of her ‘loose and wrinkled’ belly in a bikini.
The mother, who is a British clothing partner 10-12, decided to try the new ‘non-surgical liposuction’, which uses radio frequency heat to break down fat cells while simultaneously working out the abdominal muscles.

Recalling how desperate she had been for 10 years to lose weight, Kirsty said: ‘I had given birth to my third child at the age of 40 and no matter how much I exercised I could not get that last bit of fat off my stomach. I also found that the skin on my abdomen also needed a little tighter.
‘I’m an average size 10/12, but I wish my stomach was tighter and less wrinkled – was a bit loose after three pregnancies and exercise was just not working.’
She went on to say, ‘I was just 50 words and had planned a trip away with friends to celebrate it, but I wanted to feel comfortable wearing a bikini.’

Kirsty decided to try a six-session course of the new ‘non-invasive liposuction treatment’, which promises to address fat loss, muscle tone and skin tightening at the same time.
The mother of three was surprised when she managed to lose 3.5 inches from her waist in six weeks, and says she finally feels comfortable enough to wear a bikini.
The sessions last less than an hour and see a therapist applying gel to the target area before going over it with a handpiece that emits radio frequency heat.
Kirsty said: ‘The first session I felt a little uncomfortable, my stomach felt a little tear the next day, but as the sessions go on you get more and more used to it.
‘The machine shrinks and goes in with the muscles, so it’s a bit of a strange feeling, but nothing painful or unbearable.
‘Each session is only 40 minutes and there is no downtime so I could go straight back to my busy day as normal.’
Kirsty attended a weekly session for six weeks and was amazed at the results.
Elsewhere, Amelia, 40, wanted to get rid of her post ‘mum tum’ and saw results after four sessions (seen before and right after) She said: ‘I was frustrated with the looser skin and a little bit of fat on my belly after the pregnancy that I just could not shake with diet and exercise. I did not want perfection, but a little help. ‘
Amelia said: (seen left and right after) ‘I’m standing taller and not so busy when I put on a 2-piece swimsuit. I’m more comfortable in my body and proud of what is there that will not go away ‘
She said: ‘I could see a difference right after session one, by comparing the photos and measurements Susan had taken before I started, I could not wait for the next treatment, and to see how the results following weeks would improve.
‘I was hoping that the treatment results would be quick and it certainly made a huge difference after the first treatment. I had finished all 6 sessions in 6 weeks, I could not have achieved this with just going to sports school. ‘
Susan admitted she felt as confident as before, adding: ‘I lost 3.5 inches in 6 weeks.
‘I look and feel stronger, the skin on my stomach is tighter and at 50 I feel fantastic! The clothes fit perfectly better and I feel confident & comfortable in a bikini. ‘
She added: ‘It started as my little secret, but the results were so fantastic, I had to share it with my friends. My closest friends are all very impressed with their results. ‘
What is non-invasive treatment for fat loss?
What is it?
Champion by SV Aesthetics in London’s Mayfair, Non-invasive Fat Loss Treatment uses a radio frequency heat stream combined with dynamic muscle activation to break down and metabolize fat in a target area.
How does it work?
Susan Vaughan, of SV Aesthetics, shares the results on the clinic’s Instagram
A gel goes on the right area of the body and a large hand warms the skin up to 40-42 degrees, while the radiofrequency current penetrates into the adipose layer of the skin, and the fat cells begin to reach 70-72 degrees.
The cells (the hard stubborn fat) begin to fluidize and break down and the machine is then set on muscle activation – this begins to contract and pulsate the muscles that lie beneath the fat cells.
The external pressure of the handpiece and internal pressure of the contracting muscles create a squeezing effect on the cells, which helps to force the degraded fat out of the cell.
This is said to prevent damage to the fat cells, and results in your body metabolizing the fat through the lymphatic system or using it as energy. The dynamic muscle activation works to tone the muscles, which helps to hold the stomach in and achieve a toned appearance.
In addition to fat breakdown and muscle tone, the radiofrequency aims to tighten the skin by penetrating to the deeper layers and contracting the fibroblasts, stimulating collagen and elastin production.
Henry, 45, London- Before (left) and after (right) 8 sessions, he found it difficult to shift weight from his mid-section after he was in his forties and did not want to have liposuction
Henry said his navel was ‘visible through his t-shirt’ and he felt ‘overweight’, so was glad he could have this treatment in forty minutes once a week (before, left and then, right)
How long does the treatment take and what is the downtime?
The treatment can be done in forty minutes and on your lunch break, and there is no downtime.
It is advisable to drink plenty of water after treatment as this helps to start the lymphatic system which helps to remove the broken down fat. You may feel a little tender the next day, almost like you’ve done a workout.
The results are instantly visible.
