We’re all looking for the Holy Grail in fat removal. If you’re like many people, you’re trying your best to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Maybe you’ve even lost weight, but still can’t seem lose that last little bit that’s padding your middle. Now, there’s a procedure available you might be interested in hearing more about… It’s a fat removal procedure that’s non-surgical. It’s called CoolSculpting.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical way to destroy fat cells. The patient’s skin and fat are pulled into a device with chilling plates to freeze and break down fat cells through an FDA approved treatment that uses ‘Cryolipolysis™’. Noticeable results can be seen within three months.
Differences between CoolSculpting and Liposuction
- CoolSculpting is non-surgical treatment that requires no down time.
- Liposuction is a surgical procedure that requires a patient to recover prior to normal activity.
- Liposuction may be more effective than CoolSculpting® for larger areas of fat.
- The typical CoolSculpting® patient desires treatment that can be done more quickly and easily and is willing to have more than one treatment over the course of several months, for optimal results.
Candidates for CoolSculpting
Candidates for CoolSculpting® include anyone who has unwanted fat deposits and the desire to contour their body. CoolSculpting® can treat ‘muffin tops’, large abdomens or inner or outer thighs that carry too much fat.
“We can get a 20-25% reduction in the problematic area,” says Stafford Broumand, MD, a board certified plastic surgeon in New York. “The science is real, the outcome is miraculous!”
Are Results Permanent?
The treated fat cells will be eliminated during the procedure. As long as you maintain your weight with diet and exercise, your long-term results should remain stable.
