Learn more about body contouring with CoolSculpting® and the many benefits it offers for men and women seeking a nonsurgical solution to getting rid of fat that’s spoiling your curves.
Why would I consider CoolSculpting?
If your weight is in the healthy range and you exercise your muscles like you should but are struggling with pockets of fat that just won’t go away, CoolSculpting may be your solution.
The treatments can effectively eliminate shape-spoiling bulges affecting the contours of your:
- Upper arms
- Upper back and bra area
Dr. Sasaki may also recommend CoolSculpting for those “banana rolls” that seem to have permanently attached themselves to the underside of your buttocks.
How does CoolSculpting work?
Based on a scientific technique known as cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting essentially freezes fat cells just below the surface of the skin.
This destroys the fat cells without damaging surrounding skin or other tissue structures. Over time, as your body uses natural processes to eliminate the tissue debris left behind, the treatment area shrinks.
Results vary, but CoolSculpting can reduce stubborn fat by as much as 25% in problem areas without surgery, needles, or extended recovery time following your treatment.
What are the benefits of CoolSculpting?
The benefits of CoolSculpting include:
- No surgical incisions required
- Low-risk, in-office procedure
- No need for sedation or anesthesia during the procedure
- Return to normal activities immediately after treatment
- Multiple areas treated in a single session
- Targeted fat cells permanently eliminated
Because CoolSculpting is noninvasive and the cool temperatures produced during the treatment affect only fat cells, there is no risk of damage to nerves, muscles, blood vessels, and other surrounding tissue structures.
Is CoolSculpting safe?
CoolSculpting was cleared by the FDA in 2010 and has since become a popular nonsurgical solution for fat reduction in areas that are resistant to loss via diet and exercise.
Note that, starting in 2006, Dr. Sasaki participated in national and international research studies, clinical trials, and peer-reviewed investigations regarding CoolSculpting technology and treatments.
After this extensive independent evaluation, he was one of the first plastic surgeons in the Los Angeles area to use CoolSculpting for safe and effective, noninvasive fat reduction.
Am I a good candidate for CoolSculpting?
Dr. Sasaki performs a thorough exam that includes a detailed review and discussion of your medical history as well as what you can expect from CoolSculpting before recommending the procedure.
Bear in mind that CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss treatment. You won’t lose pounds with the therapy. Rather, it’s designed to reshape your curves as it eliminates fat cells. It has a high patient satisfaction rating when applied appropriately.
How long before I see results with CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting relies on your body’s natural waste disposal process rather than liposuction or another surgical procedure to remove unwanted fat.
Many individuals prefer this noninvasive body contouring solution, but it can take up to three months to experience the full effects of CoolSculpting.
Now is the best time to schedule an evaluation for CoolSculpting, especially if you’re seeking a new and improved shape for that upcoming special event or simply want to be ready for those skin-baring fashions of summer.
