Even faithfully following a diet and exercise program, there are some areas of the body that want to hold on to stubborn pockets of fat. Losing pesky love handles, inner or outer thigh bulges, or a muffin top can be nearly impossible no matter how often you work out. Until recently, your only options were invasive surgery or just accepting that you are stuck with those unsightly bulges. Associates in Plastic Surgery is pleased to offer CoolSculpting to their patients as a noninvasive option for body contouring.
What is CoolSculpting?
Developed by Harvard Scientists, CoolSculpting is a revolutionary new method of body contouring that is noninvasive, with no pain and no downtime. CoolSculpting uses the technology of cryolipolysis to freeze fat cells, leaving the surrounding skin and tissue unharmed. CoolSculpting delivers ultra-cooling energy directly to subcutaneous fat cells, freezing them on contact. Once the fat cells are frozen, they die and are shed by your body’s natural processes. Over the following weeks and months, you will see the area treated becoming slimmer and trimmer – a very rewarding experience.
What are the Benefits of CoolSculpting?
Procedures that use laser, heat, or other technologies pose a risk of harming the tissue surrounding the fat. CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared, patented technology which freezes fat cells, while leaving surrounding tissue unharmed. CoolSculpting has many benefits when it comes to body contouring including:
- Gentle fat removal
- No downtime
- No need for incisions, needles, or anesthesia
- Removal of fat through your body’s natural processes
- Natural-looking results
CoolSculpting vs. Surgical Body Contouring
When considering options to sculpt your body, there are many options to consider. Liposuction offers the ability to remove significant amounts of fat from treated areas in a single treatment. Most patients can return to work in one week after treatment. If you have a larger amount of fat to remove, you may be a candidate for surgical body contouring. However, if you hope to avoid invasive surgery and want to simply refine your body contour, CoolSculpting is an easy-to-experience, effective method for body sculpting.
What can CoolSculpting Not Do?
CoolSculpting is not designed for those who have a significant amount of weight to lose. Rather, it is ideally suited for those who are close to their ideal weight, but who have pesky bulges that will not respond to diet and exercise. By targeting these problem areas with CoolSculpting, you can contour your body one treatment at a time by freezing your fat cells to create a more attractive, fit, firm, appearance.
