Keybody-Lipo is an innovative and non-invasive protocol for permanent fat removal and muscle sculpting of the body. This protocol is based on two techniques of aesthetic medicine allowing a remodeling of the body (cryolipolysis with CoolSculpting and EMSculpt), which can be associated with XBody assisted electro-myo-stimulation sessions.
The Keybody-Lipo protocol is particularly effective to treat fatty deposits in the abdomen, the abdominal belt, the buttocks, the hips or the thighs.
The Keybody-Lipo protocol can be considered as a nonsurgical alternative to a "liposuction" insofar as it allows to obtain the same effects in terms of suppression of localized fat, without the side effects and risks inherent to surgery aesthetic.
A protocol that combines 3 treatments
The Keybody-Lipo protocol is based on three non-invasive treatments for fat suppression (CoolSculpting EMSculpt), muscle sculpting (EMSculpt) associated with muscular electrostimulation sessions (XBody) .
Cryolipolysis with CoolSculpting: Fat deposit removal
Cryolipolysis is an innovative method of aesthetic medicine based on the action of cold on fat cells. These cells are more sensitive to cold than other cells of the body, they are damaged during treatment and are then naturally eliminated by metabolism in the weeks following treatment.
Coolsculpting cryolipolysis provides thinning with a natural and scar-free result. This treatment also allows a firming of the skin and a reduction of superficial fat (and therefore reduction in cellulite).
Cryolipolysis is a treatment indicated for all people who have unsightly bulges and fat depostis, resistant to diets or exercise.

EMSculpt: Eliminate fat and build muscle
EMSculpt® is a non-invasive treatment for body remodeling. This is the only treatment combining muscle building and fat removal. EMSculpt simultaneously promotes muscle gain and subcutaneous fat elimination for the most significant and natural result possible.
Clinical studies have shown that EMSculpt reduces the fat layer by 19% and increases muscle mass by an average of 16% during a treatment consisting of 4 sessions spaced two or three days apart.
EMSculpt sessions are indicated for women and men who want to remove excess fat in the belly, redraw and tone their abdominals or their gluteal muscles.

Toning your body with XBody
Result of 10 years of research and development, the XBody protocol combines muscular electrostimulation with a sport session. XBody has been developed in France by a physiotherapist specialized in high level professional athletes with the help of which sports rehabilitation protocols have been put in place and can be tailored to suit everyone.
The XBody protocol is based on a method that aims to sculpt the body and anticipate musculoskeletal disorders for a healthy purpose (such as the prevention of osteoporosis). This method involves performing dynamic movements to counter electrically stimulated muscle contractions. Unlike a single electro-stimulator that applies to only one area of the body at a time, XBody allows intensive whole-body work synchronously throughout the session.
XBody offers a considerable time saving compared to the practice of fitness and bodybuilding: a session of 20 minutes is equivalent to 2 to 4 hours of intensive muscle training. A session of 20 minutes can burn between 200 and 500 calories.
For which type of patient?
The Keybody-Lipo protocol is for women and men who want to:
- Remove fat deposits, difficult to lose with diets and sports
- Dry their body by eliminating subcutaneous fat,
- Remodel muscularily their silhouette,
- Make the abdominals more visible and firmer
- Thin the entire abdominal belt (abdomen and handle of love)
- Firm and regain the buttocks and hips
- Get a slimmer and sportier silhouette, while remaining completely natural.
Body contouring consultation
To help you with the treatment of fat removal and muscle toning of the body, Dr. Kron and his team set up a Body contouring consultation.
The objective of this consultation is to use the diagnostic tools of the fat and muscle architecture of your body and take into account your wishes for thinning and toning your body. You are then offered a customized therapeutic protocol to obtain the result you want, which corresponds to the image you make of yourself.
The Body contouring consultation can be used to evaluate whether you are a good candidate for the Keybody-Lipo protocol.
Results with Keybody-Lipo
Coolsculpting cryolipolysis will allow you to see the pinch fat in the device decreased by half (on average) with only one treatment per zone.
EMSculpt shows decreased fat by 19% and muscle increases by 16% after 4 sessions per zone (on average).
It has been scientifically demonstrated that the X-Body electro-myo-stimulation device makes it possible to obtain significant results both on the appearance of the skin and on the muscles in 5 weeks at the rate of 2 sessions / week.
The treatments proposed in the context of Keybody-Lipo do not have to be considered in a combined way. However, they each have a different action on the architecture of the body. A combined approach often leads to an optimal and completely natural result.
EMSculpt is the only treatment that acts simultaneously on fat masses and muscular architecture. It allows to obtain very significant results on parts of the body where muscles are present (abdominal muscles, gluteal muscles). If CoolSculpting does not stimulate the muscular architecture, it can treat fatty deposits located on regions that have little muscle (love handles, hips, inner or outer thighs fat).
The complete Keybody-Lipo protocol is particularly appropriate for treating the abdominal belt and the "saddlebags".
In the case of the belly and the abdominal belt, the complete Keybody-Lipo protocol will:
- melt a localized fat by Coolsculpting (love handles, sub-umbilical bead ...) to
- dry the rest of the belly fat and draw the abdominals by EMSculpt
- maintain and strengthen sport coaching amplified by XBody
In the case of the hips and buttocks::
- EMSculpt will act on all the gluteal muscles to obtain ideally curved buttocks.
- CoolSculpting can be used in addition to remove subcutaneous fatty deposits located in the pelvis, in the lower and outer buttocks, at the hips and at the top of the outer thighs.
- XBody will maintain and amplify the result
What is the role of XBody sessions?
XBody is not a treatment in itself, but sessions can be indicated in patients who wish to continue muscle building and reduction of their fat mass after sessions of CoolSculpting and EMSculpt.
XBody makes it possible to amplify the aesthetic result obtained with these treatments by working the whole body, for the best body contouring treatment possible.
With XBody, the patient participates actively in the remodeling of his body for a benefit that becomes global, psychocorporeal on the one hand, but also in terms of health with cardiovascular benefits and lifestyle.
Visible results within a few weeks:
The results of Keybody-Lipo treatments are not immediately visible, but are gradually revealed in the weeks following the sessions.
In the case of EMSculpt, the result on the muscles can be observed 8 to 15 days after the treatment. The result in fat destruction appears later, within 2-3 months. Indeed, the result on fat takes longer, because it is necessary to wait until the fat cells are eliminated by the body.
In the case of cryolipolysis with CoolSculpting, it is also necessary to wait until the fat cells damaged by the treatment are gradually eliminated by the body. We begin to see the results after 3-4 weeks, but the result is optimal only after 2 to 3 months.
An alternative without surgery to liposuction?
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery treatment that necessarily induces hospitalization, scars and anesthesia.
If it is a treatment that has been proven for a long time, liposuction necessarily involves the risks inherent in any surgical procedure as well as side effects (discomfort, bruising, edema, temporary skin sensitivities).
The Keybody-Lipo protocol has 3 advantages over liposuction:
- Keybody-Lipo involves very few side effects: none in the case of EMSculpt, some inconvenience in the case of CoolSculpting (numbness, bruising, tingling).
- Keybody-Lipo avoids all risks inherent in any surgical procedure: no anesthesia, hospitalization or scarring.
- Only Keybody-Lipo allows to associate a fat suppression to a muscular sculpting. Indeed, a liposuction can only eliminate excess fat while sessions allow to tone the body muscle parallel to an action. This double action, on the fats and the muscles, makes it possible to obtain a very significant and as natural as possible result.
When to use a liposuction?
Liposuction is a more appropriate technique when combined with another surgical procedure or in the case of large-area treatment. In particular, liposuction is more appropriate for patients who wish to have a complete result in a single procedure.
Because of these side effects and the fact that it is a necessarily heavier treatment, Dr. Kron tends to favor Coolsculpting and Keybody-Lipo when fat suppression is the only indication treated. On the other hand, in the case of a surgical intervention (liposculpture, facelift, bodylift, abdominoplasty ...), the treatment can be combined with liposuction at the same time.
