Unlike more invasive surgical procedures, the CoolSculpting® process is non-invasive, with no needles and no need for surgical incisions. During the procedure, a non-invasive applicator is applied to the skin surface to deliver precisely controlled cooling to target and remove fat cells in specific areas of the body.
As they are exposed to cooling, the fat cells begin a process of natural cell removal. The fat cells in the treated area are gradually removed through the body’s normal metabolic processes, similar to how fat from food is removed. The result is a reduction in fat bulges that is visible in most patients in about two to four months.
CoolSculpting® is a popular option for non-surgical fat reduction, especially among individuals who lead generally healthy lifestyles but still struggle with a bit of bulge. Indeed, this is a common complaint that we hear at H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery: We have countless patients who are physically fit and at a stable weight, yet still have bulges, rolls, and other small areas of fat they can’t get rid of no matter how much they exercise or diet. Spot reducing fat through diet and exercise is practically impossible for many of us. Men and women alike face the frustrating truth every day: A muffin top. Love handles. Back fat—not much, but just enough to show through a snug-fitting t-shirt or blouse. These small areas of fat don’t seem to warrant a surgical procedure. And yet, what else can be done?
After a one-to-three hour CoolSculpting® procedure, the patient’s body goes to work. Over the next two to four months, the crystallized fat cells break down and are naturally removed from the body. The ease and efficacy of CoolSculpting® make it one of the very best ways to pursue non-surgical fat reduction; if you’re ready to learn more about CoolSculpting®,we hope you’ll contact us at your next opportunity.
