A variety of non-invasive and minimally fat reduction options are available today for people who wish to get rid of stubborn fat pockets in specific areas of the body without plastic surgery. CoolSculpting ranks among the most sought-after treatment options. This unique, FDA cleared procedure is totally non-invasive and yet creates significant fat reduction outcomes.
CoolSculpting involves an innovative cooling process to freeze the fat off and eliminate it from the body without the need of any incisions, injections or medications. Board certified plastic surgeons at MBody provide CoolSculpting to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and surrounding locations.
A single treatment session can be completed in about 35 to 40 minutes with the latest CoolSculpting or CoolMini applicators.
The patient will simply relax comfortably in treatment room while the provider gently uses the applicator to target unwanted fat cells selectively and cause them to freeze and eventually disintegrate. The disintegrated fat cells will be gradually absorbed by the body, revealing a slimmer, contoured figure.
Following the CoolSculpting treatment, the frozen cells will take a few weeks to get removed from the body. While improvement in contours will be noticed just after the first treatment session, progressive fat reduction will occur over a series of three to six treatments, depending on the patient’s needs.
Most patients will achieve an overall fat reduction of about 20 percent with CoolSculpting. Most conspicuous results will establish in about three to four months after CoolSculpting. The total number of treatment sessions, the number of treated areas and the extent of procedure will depend on the patient’s body type, health condition, and personal cosmetic goals.
Permanent Fat Elimination
The path-breaking cooling technique involved in CoolSculpting was developed by Harvard scientists. Fat cells quickly respond to cold temperatures, and can be selectively targeted with the CoolSculpting device. The treatment causes the fat cells to freeze and eventually die. The dead fat cells are then permanently re-absorbed by the body.
As a result, CoolSculpting leads to permanent elimination of treated fat cells. The fat cells once removed will not return. But patients should know that CoolSculpting is not a replacement for diet and exercise. A good fitness regimen is vital to the maintenance of a well-contoured body.
Experienced plastic surgeons at MBody receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and nearby areas for CoolSculpting.
To learn more about CoolSculpting, patients should review the testimonials and feedback of past patients who have undergone the same procedure. Major online forums on aesthetic procedures, social networks and websites should also be explored to improve understanding about CoolSculpting.
Patients should form realistic expectations and should know that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure, but a fat reduction technique designed to enhance contours. They may also request the surgeon to provide CoolSculpting before and after images for review.
