CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction procedure that may be recommended for people who are bothered by unsightly fat bulges in their body, but seek an alternative to plastic surgery. At the time of initial consultation, the surgeon will explain various aspects of CoolSculpting treatment to the patient, including the recovery aspect.
Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center (MBody), led by ABPS board certified plastic surgeons, provides CoolSculpting treatment to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations in this part of the Atlantic seaboard.
No Recovery Period
One of the distinguishing features of CoolSculpting is that the procedure is completely non-invasive and does not involve any specific recovery time. This is one of the reasons behind the growing popularity and acceptance of CoolSculpting among candidates who want to avoid plastic surgery and yet achieve improvement in their body contours.
Some of the highlights of CoolSculpting include:
- The treatment is pain-free and completely comfortable
- The procedure is simple and can be performed in-office
- It takes less than an hour to complete a treatment session
- No scalpels, injections, anesthesia, incisions, or traumatic suction are involved
- No post-treatment risk of surgical complications
- No sensation of burning, which may occur with heat-based techniques
Ideal for Busy People
Working people and busy mothers are typically concerned about the potential downtime involved in body contouring procedures. CoolSculpting is ideal for such candidates because it will allow them to carry on their regular work without any serious interruption.
It can easily fit into their busy lifestyle. The patient may even go through a CoolSculpting treatment session during lunch hour, and return to the workplace immediately after the session.
No Healing Time
CoolSculpting involves no anesthesia or sedation. Therefore, even the temporary side effects or the recovery time required for the anesthesia effects to wear off is not a concern in CoolSculpting. No cuts, incisions or needles are required in CoolSculpting, which means no wound bed healing is involved.
Even laser resurfacing or strong chemical peel procedures involve a considerable recovery period, but CoolSculpting involves no acids, chemicals or lasers. Targeted results with its unique cooling process ensure that the surrounding healthy tissue remains unaffected by CoolSculpting procedure. The treatment does not require aggressive handling of the fat cells to get rid of them.
Insignificant Side Effects
Following CoolSculpting, some patients will experience mild to moderate soreness, numbness and a slight tingling sensation in the treated areas. Mild bruising may occur in rare cases. The soreness in the treated area may be similar to the kind that one experiences after an intense exercise session.
This feeling may last for about two to three days. However, the condition will not cause any significant pain or discomfort which could hinder the normal activity of the patient.
