One of the most common problems we see in our Plastic Surgery practice is excess fat. We all have areas of our body where we would like to look more toned and tight. These "bulges" show through our clothing, make it hard to put on a bathing suit, and are frustrating when they persist despite diet and exercise. For many years, our only option was to use liposuction, which is an excellent technique to contour the body and remove excess fat. The only downside to liposuction has been the recovery and postoperative discomfort. We now have an alternative technique called CoolSculpting which is an office procedure that gradually diminishes fat cells in treated areas over weeks to months with the advantage of allowing the patient to get right back into their daily routine.
Coolsculpting works by selectively freezing fat but not injuring surrounding structures like skin and muscle. Each patient is carefully examined and a treatment plan developed prior to starting the procedure. The Coolsculpting treatment takes one hour and multiple treatments are usually recommended to achieve the best results. Time on the Coolsculpting machine can be spent reading, listening to muscle, sleeping, or just relaxing. Imagine just kicking back and having your fat frozen away without needles, surgery, or downtime.
