Shrink the Fat Smartly with CoolSculpting

The long hot days of summer are gone, and like many of us the barbecues, weddings and graduation parties are starting to show excess fat in unattractive places on your body.  Even after putting in long hours at the gym and eating right during the week, we cannot seem to avoid the extra baggage that comes from extra eating in the summer.  It is still possible to look your best in time to avoid a snug-fitting fall wardrobe.  With CoolSculpting you can easily eliminate the extra inches you gained from summer.

CoolSculpting, by Zeltiq, is a non-invasive, body contouring treatment that targets fat cells underneath the skin and freezes and eliminates them.  Without the use of scalpels, suction hoses or scars, this procedure crystallizes fat cells and naturally removes them from the patient.

WHAT AREAS DOES COOLSCULPTING FOCUS ON?

Men and women often see major fat deposits along the waistline and the abdominal region; fat cells are commonly treated in this region, as well as others.  CoolSculpting usually targets the following areas of a patient’s body:

  1. Abdomen
  2. Flanks and love handles
  3. Bra Roll
  4. Waist
  5. Inner Thighs

CANDIDATES FOR COOLSCULPTING:

It is important to understand that CoolSculpting is not a substitute for diet and exercise.  Patients with positive and realistic expectations are capable of seeing quality results.  Candidates who are physically healthy and possess noticeable stubborn bulges of fat in areas that do not respond to diet and exercise can be excellent candidates for CoolSculpting.

Patients who wish to remove fat without undergoing surgery can benefit from this procedure. Treatment works best if the patient has a mild or moderate amount of extra fat in the midsection.

Those that want to look just a little bit smaller, but do not hold enough fat deposits for liposuction may gain the results they were hoping to achieve.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF COOLSCULPTING?

Unlike other procedures, CoolSculpting is a non-surgical fat removal process that does not have any risks or anesthesia associated.  Body shape and image negatively impact a patient in more ways than one.  From this procedure they will achieve the results they have been working for.  Benefits of CoolSculpting include:

  1. Reduction of bumps and bulges
  2. Pain-free procedure
  3. Subtle and natural results
  4. No down time
  5. No scalpels, anesthesia, compression garments or scars
  6. Cost effective

According to a study from the Aesthetic Surgery Journal, plastic surgeons found that cryolipolysis from CoolSculpting was highly effective at reducing fat volume.  The popularity of the procedure grew dramatically from 2010-12.  The researchers found that the cryolipolysis is safe, effective and provides high patient-satisfaction levels.

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER TREATMENT:

Patients do not need to wait in hospital beds or return home and start aftercare treatment.  They can resume to their daily activities after the procedure.  The treated areas will feel cold and numb, as well as leave behind skin pinkness.  By the next day, patients may see mild bruising but it will resolve over a few weeks.

Over the next three days the fat cells start responding to treatment and patients may experience soreness, but they are not held back from completing physical activities or work.

SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION
