    Elite Freeze Coolsculpting To Get Rid Of Body Fat vs. Liposuction

    Elite Freeze Coolsculpting To Get Rid Of Body Fat vs. Liposuction

    Body Contouring

    For several years, people have turned to the liposuction procedure to get rid of stubborn and excessive fatty deposits from specific areas of their body. But as popular as it is, it comes with a variety of risks like any other surgical procedures. Elite Freeze CoolSculpting, on the other hand, is a 100% non-surgical and non-invasive treatment to remove fatty pockets.

    Each procedure has its own pros and cons, and both have shown to be highly effective in making the body look slimmer. So, which one is the best option for you? It’s best to talk with your plastic surgeon to get a clear picture based on your current health and any underlying conditions.

    Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides Elite Freeze CoolSculpting to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations.

    What is Liposuction?

    During liposuction, a suction technique is used to remove fat from targeted areas of the body, such as buttocks, thighs, hips, abdomen, neck, or arms. Also known as body contouring, this procedure usually requires the patient to be put under regional or local anesthesia.  In some cases, general anesthesia could also be administered.

    The surgeon begins the procedure by making tiny incisions in the treatment areas. Once the region has been numbed by a local/general anesthetic, the surgeon will insert a narrow cannula through the incision and use it to suction the fat out. Once the fat removal is complete, the incisions will be closed.

    A liposuction surgery can last up to several hours, depending on the extent of fat removal. Patients usually spend a few hours or overnight in the clinic or hospital so their surgeon can monitor their recovery. The majority of patients are able to return to their routine activities within a week.

    What is Elite Freeze CoolSculpting?

    Elite Freeze CoolSculpting is a cutting-edge fat reduction treatment which requires no incisions or anesthesia. This non-invasive, FDA-cleared procedure uses specially designed applicators to target, freeze, and eliminate fatty deposits.

    If you have visible fat bulges in any of the following nine areas of your body, you are a solid candidate for Elite Freeze CoolSculpting:

    • Abdomen
    • Thighs
    • Flanks (the areas around the sides of your upper body)
    • Upper arms
    • Underneath the buttocks
    • Back fat
    • Along with bra fat
    • Submental and submandibular areas (areas on your neck, jaw, and head)

    The reason why Elite Freeze CoolSculpting is so effective in removing localized fat deposits is due to the innovative C-shaped applicators. These applicators have been designed to mold to the natural curves of the body, providing them improved and precise fit. Additionally, the new-and-improved applicators can target up to 18% larger cooling area compared to older applicator models.

    Liposuction vs. Elite Freeze CoolSculpting

    There is little doubt that liposuction is an effective way to get rid of fat from specific areas, but it’s not for everyone. Liposuction simply won’t work for you if:

    • You have an underlying medical condition or infection that could impair healing, such as diabetes, peripheral arterial disease, venous insufficiency, etc.
    • You don’t have time to spend a day at the hospital and then a week recovering from the surgery.
    • Your skin has poor elasticity.
    • You absolutely do not want visible scars on your body.

    Elite Freeze CoolSculpting, on the other hand, is non-invasive, with no downtime or recovery, no need of anesthesia, and low-to-no risk of scarring. The field of plastic surgery is advancing at a rapid pace, and Elite Freeze is simply the newest and safer alternative to many fat-removal procedures including liposuction.

    Skin Removal Surgery After Weight Loss

    Skin Removal Surgery

    Losing excess weight is excellent for your health and aesthetic appearance, but sometimes the benefits may be offset by the appearance of loose, inelastic skin in certain areas after a massive weight loss. Aging effects and pregnancy can also contribute to unsightly loose skin folds in certain areas of the body. In many cases, excess hanging skin can also create problems such as frequent infections, skin rashes, chafing, discomfort, and obstruction in performing some activities.

    Skin removal surgery is a safe and proven way to resolve this condition. Plastic surgery becomes important in these cases because once the skin loses elasticity it may not be regained simply with diet or exercise. You should talk to your surgeon for a customized skin tightening and contouring plan.

    Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides skin removal surgery to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding communities.

    Types of Skin Removal Procedures

    One or more of the following cosmetic surgery procedures may be included as part of your excess skin removal procedure:

    • Abdominoplasty: Popularly known as tummy tuck, this procedure is designed to eliminate excess skin from the abdominal area. Your surgeon may also tighten the loose muscles and remove excess fat.
    • Body Lift: A comprehensive skin removal surgery may include a full body lift, or just lower or upper body lift. Procedures such as back lift, arm lift, Brazilian butt lift, and thigh lift may be included.
    • Liposuction: Skin removal surgery may sometimes be combined with liposuction to create more natural and even looking results. Talk to your surgeon about your candidacy for liposuction with body lift.
    • Mommy Makeover: This is a major but highly popular plastic surgery procedure sought by moms who want to gain back their pre-pregnancy appearance. It may combine multiple skin removal surgeries.

    Who Should Choose Skin Removal Surgery?

    Any woman or man who is bothered by the appearance of loose, hanging skin in certain areas after a bariatric surgery, pregnancy or simply due to aging could benefit from skin removal surgery. Make sure your body weight is not fluctuating any longer when you consider this surgery.

    If you have any near future plans for a pregnancy or weight loss, you should avoid skin removal surgery. Your surgeon will require you to stop smoking for at least a few weeks before and after the surgery, and you should be committed to follow their instructions.

    Procedure Steps

    Skin removal surgery procedure is fairly straightforward, but minor variations may occur depending on your custom surgery plan. The procedure steps will generally include the following:

    1. You will be placed under general anesthesia
    2. Your surgeon will place the incisions in the marked areas
    3. Through the incisions, they will remove the excess skin tissue
    4. The remaining skin will be tightened and shaped to form youthful contours, and re-draped smoothly over the area
    5. Your surgeon will close the incisions with absorbable sutures
    6. The incision areas will be covered with bandages

The BMI should be lower than 46.2 for patients looking to remove fat from the in submental and submandibular areas.

    The optimal number of treatment sessions will differ among individuals. CoolSculpting Elite can offer expected results in 1 or 3 sessions. This will be assessed by your treatment provider during an in-person consultation.

    Time Taken By CoolSculpting Elite Treatment

    Duration of the treatment depends on the type and number of areas being treated. It also depends on the number of applicators being used. It takes two sessions of 45 minutes each to treat under the chin area if both applicators are being used simultaneously. On the abdomen, it will take anywhere from 35 – 45 minutes depending on the applicator size.

    For instance, arms and flanks can be treated at the same time or arms and abdomen. The best part is that CoolSculpting Elite offers similar results in both men and women.
