Have you dieted and exercised and still can’t get those love handles to disappear? You might be a good candidate for CoolSculpting. This is a new cosmetic procedure that is effective at eliminating targeted areas of fat. Unlike liposuction, this procedure is non-invasive and pain-free. There is little to no downtime and the patient can even read a book or watch television while undergoing the procedure. The technique is administered by a doctor and uses cold to literally freeze the fat so it is eliminated naturally by the body. It takes a little longer to see results, but it is well worth the wait.
One of the primary benefits of CoolSculpting is that this is not surgery. There are no incisions and the patient does not need any type of anesthesia. This means there is a much lower risk of infection or complications. Additionally, this procedure is usually much less expensive than liposuction and doesn’t take as long. The entire CoolSculpting procedure takes an average of 60 minutes and there is no downtime. The patient can resume normal activities right away.
There are no scars from the procedure and there are no needles involved. The doctor simply applies a special applicator to the targeted area. This applicator gently pulls the fat in between two cooling plates that gradually cool down and freeze the fat cells in the tissue. There is no damage to surrounding tissue, just to the unwanted fat. Once the fat cells are destroyed, the body will naturally eliminate them through the waste process.
If you are tired of excess fat on your butt or thighs, this may be the right procedure for you. When you have CoolSculpting performed on a certain part of your body, those cells are gone and will not return. Even if you gain weight, fat cells will not form where the CoolSculpting was performed.
This is a great option for those who are busy and can’t afford to take a week or more off work to recuperate. Before choosing a doctor, take some time to meet with several physicians who specialize in this procedure. Ask them about the process and discuss any concerns you may have. It is recommended that you use a board certified plastic surgeon to perform the procedure.
CoolSculpting is a procedure which may be performed on both men and women. Most of us have some spot on our body which we think is too fat. The best candidates for CoolSculpting are within ten to twenty pounds of their goal weight and have deposits of fat on their waist, thighs, buttocks, abdomen or chest area.
This procedure is best used on fat deposits, not against cellulite. If you have fairly firm thighs with just a bit of a fat layer, CoolSculpting may not work for you. However, if you have saddlebags that just won’t disappear no matter how hard you work, this procedure could be perfect.
It is always best to discuss your options with your surgeon before making a decision. CoolSculpting can help with certain types of fat deposits. Ask your doctor if it can help you.
