Coolsculpting

CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive procedure that gently and effectively eliminates or reduces fat from targeted areas of the body that have not responded to traditional diet and exercise. Patients can benefit from noticeable yet natural-looking results in their problem areas, providing an overall smoother body contour. CoolSculpting is effective in eliminating or reducing what we fondly refer to as muffing tops, love handles and spare tires.

The results of the CoolSculpting procedure are achieved using the advanced Cryolipolysis™ technology, which cools the targeted tissue to break down the fat cells for easy removal, without any harm to the surrounding tissue. Fat cells have been proven to be more vulnerable to cold than the surrounding tissue. This stimulates a natural fat removal process that continues for several months after the CoolSculpting procedure.

Candidates for CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is considered safe and effective for most patients seeking fat removal from targeted areas such as the abdomen, love handles, inner thigh, outer thigh, and upper back area. Since CoolSculpting is not a weight loss solution, patients should be relatively fit, with one or more areas of stubborn fat that does not respond to diet or exercise.
 
It is important for patients to have realistic expectations about the results of this procedure, as CoolSculpting is not designed to remove large volumes of fat like conventional liposuction procedures. CoolSculpting is considered a less invasive alternative for patients with modest-sized fat bulges. Dr. Balle and Dr. Lipinski will help determine whether or not you are a candidate for CoolSculpting after a physical examination and an evaluation of your medical history.

Benefits of CoolSculpting

As a completely non-invasive procedure, CoolSculpting offers patients many benefits over other fat reduction procedures. Some of these benefits include:

  • Little-to-no downtime. Most patients are able to return to normal activities the same day.
  • No need for anesthesia
  • Pain-free (some patients may experience redness, minor bruising, numbness or discomfort in treated area but only temporarily)
  • No incisions

During the procedure, most patients remain completely comfortable and can read, listen to music and simply relax. Most patients are able to return to work and resume other regular activities the very same day.

CoolSculpting Procedure
The CoolSculpting procedure involves the use of an applicator that cools the fat cells in the targeted area of your body for a simple, natural fat removal process. An applicator cup is then attached to deliver a gentle vacuum pressure that draws tissue between the cooling panels.
 
The treated fat cells are removed though natural metabolic processes within the body, similar to the way fat from food is removed. This allows for a gradual reduction in fat from targeted areas to create a slimmer, more defined appearance. The CoolSculpting procedure takes one to two hours to perform, depending on the size of the area being treated.

Results of CoolSculpting

The results of the CoolSculpting procedure are visible as early as 30 days. You will achieve maximum results in two to three months. Although these results are not as rapid as those achieved through liposuction, patients undergoing Zeltiq can avoid the pain, risks and lengthy recovery times associated with these more invasive procedures.
 
Most patients who undergo CoolSculpting are highly satisfied with the results of their procedure and are able to enjoy a natural, slimmer appearance. While no long-term studies are currently available, the results of CoolSculpting are expected to last about as long as fat reduction achieved through traditional liposuction procedures.

Risks of CoolSculpting

Because of its noninvasive nature, CoolSculpting has considerably fewer risks than other fat reduction procedures. CoolSculpting is considered safe for most patients, although there are certain risks associated with any kind of treatment. Some of these risks may include redness, bruising and reduced sensation in the treated area. These side effects are considered normal and usually go away on their own within a few days after treatment.
