Body contouring is a popular option for plastic surgery patients, but in the past it also meant surgery, incisions and downtime. Now, there is a way to sculpt a leaner, sleeker body profile without surgery. CoolSculpting, available at Hall Plastic Surgery and Rejuvenation Center, offers excellent body contouring results without pain or downtime.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a revolutionary procedure that introduces the concept of cryoplipolysis to the body contouring arena. Instead of using a catheter to loosen fat and suction it away, cryolipolysis freezes fat cells to eliminate them. As the cells die from the freezing process, they can be effectively eliminated by natural body processes.

CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction

CoolSculpting and liposuction are both considered safe, effective ways to create leaner body contours in many different areas of the body. However, for the right candidates, CoolSculpting offers significant advantages over the liposuction procedure:

  • No anesthesia required, reducing associated risks
  • No incisions, which means no visible scarring after the procedure
  • Procedure entails minimal discomfort during and after
  • Return to regular activities immediately following the procedure

Visible Fat Reduction

CoolSculpting results in visible fat reduction in areas like the hips, thighs, abdomen, back and arms. Results are seen over time, as the body flushes out the fat cells, so it may take many weeks before you see the final outcome. Some patients may have a second CoolSculpting procedure approximately two months after the first, to address pockets of fat that did not respond completely the first time around. However, the majority of our patients will achieve their desired results in just a single treatment session.

Long-Lasting Results

Because CoolSculpting actually destroys the fat cells in the treated area, the results should be long-lasting. However, while those fat cells cannot return, other cells left in the treatment area may expand over time. We advise patients to adhere to a healthy diet and exercise program after treatment to ensure results continue. If you decide you want additional treatment of the original area or a new area of the body, you can always schedule another procedure for this purpose.

CoolSculpting is a safe, effective way to sculpt a leaner body contour. We typically recommend this procedure to patients requiring minimal fat reduction. The procedure can also be used on patients interested in body contouring but unable or unwilling to undergo a surgical procedure like liposuction.
