Sometimes no amount of diet and exercise can rid your body of stubborn fat deposits like muffin tops and love handles. CoolSculpting® is an innovation in fat reduction that allows you to eliminate those problem areas without surgery, without anesthesia, without needles, and without downtime. Blair Plastic Surgery can treat all these FDA approved areas; fat under the chin, around the knees, upper arms, inner and outer thighs, back fat, bra fat, flanks, muffin tops, and the abdomen.
We eagerly await the FDA's review regarding the treatment of gynecomastia with Coolsculpting as it will offer a scarless solution to reducing excess fat to the male breast area. We will keep you posted!
Not everyone is a candidate for Coolsculpting, and for this reason, we always offer free consultations for Coolsculpting. Should you need to explore other options such as liposuction or tummy tuck, our Pennsylvania plastic surgeon Dr. Louton can help you decide which is the right body contouring procedure to help you achieve your desired body shape. Call (800) 833-3888 to schedule an appointment.
Unlike other fat reduction treatments, CoolSculpting does not require an invasive procedure. There are no incisions, no cannulas for fat suction, and no scars. CoolSculpting uses the power of cooling to eliminate fat pockets.
Cleared by the FDA for fat reduction, CoolSculpting works by targeting fat cells with cold. Fat cells are particularly susceptible to cold, so they are affected by the treatment whereas your other healthy cells remain unaffected. Typical treatments last from one to three hours, depending on your specific goals.
During treatment, we will place a gel pad in the treatment area to protect your skin during treatment. Then using vacuum pressure, the CoolSculpting applicator will apply pressure and cooling to the targeted area. Exposure to extreme cold will cause the natural death of your unwanted fat cells.
Over the next weeks, your body will naturally shed these cells, leaving you with a trimmer figure.
Minimal Recovery with Long-Lasting Results
With CoolSculpting, there is almost no recovery time required. You can return to your normal activities, including your normal workout routine the same day as your treatment.
You may experience some bruising, redness, numbness, or tingling in the treatment area. However these side effects are temporary and will pass quickly. Within weeks, you will see the dramatic results that CoolSculpting can make in your figure.
As long as you maintain your healthy and active lifestyle, you can expect to maintain your CoolSculpting results.
