What Women Need to Know About Coolsculpting

coolsculpting picture - LocateADocCoolsculpting is a simple and non-invasive procedure that offers some of the benefits of liposuction without needing to go under the knife. Before we continue, it is important to note Coolsculpting is not a procedure designed to treat obesity, but rather it is for patients who desire minor toning in certain areas by removing bulges of fat. If you have small areas of stubborn fat you’d like to eliminate quickly, Coolsculpting is one of the better options for cosmetic surgery.

So what is Coolsculpting? The goal of Coolsculpting is to actually freeze the fat cells underneath the skin. Once the fat is frozen, it dies. Once the fat cells die, they dissolve and leave the body naturally.

To perform a Coolsculpting procedure a doctor has the patient sit in a chair while the technician uses two cooling panels to freeze the fat. The patient will feel some pressure, but it doesn’t need to penetrate the skin. The patient is asked to relax during the course of this procedure with reading, taking a nap, etc.

H. Christopher Coley, MDThe minor details of recovery time and the length of procedure vary from patient to patient. “During the consultation, I will determine how long your treatment sessions should be," Greensboro, NC plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Coley said. "They are typically between one to three hours. During the treatment sessions, you can take a nap, work on your laptop, or read a book.”

This also means that there is a variation of price from patient to patient. The best way to find out the specifics about the price is to go in and consult with a professional about the specifics of your Coolsculpting procedure. The doctor will be able to cater to your specific needs by creating a treatment while also giving you an estimate of the cost.

Did We Mention Coolsculpting is Safe?

What truly makes Coolsculpting unique is that it is fast, cost-effective and safe. Coolsculpting is FDA approved for treating areas on the abdomen and flanks, an area known as the love handles, which carries a little extra fat. Bulges, bumps and stubborn fat tend to sit in this area even with diet and exercise. Coolsculpting helps to finally allow the body to be rid of this unhealthy and unattractive fatty part of the midsection for good.

If you want a procedure which is non-invasive, affordable and effective, Coolsculpting may be an awesome option for you. Schedule an appointment with a professional cosmetic surgeon to see if this procedure fits your individual needs.
