Women and men considering non-surgical reduction in excess fatty deposits in multiple areas of the body may choose from a wide range of non-invasive fat reduction procedures that are available today.
The various options for non-surgical fat reduction include CoolSculpting, which is one of the most sought-after and effective solutions for the precise elimination of fat. This advanced procedure is entirely non-invasive. Regardless, it provides remarkable fat reduction results.
Many new patients are understandably concerned about the efficacy of CoolSculpting. This unique cooling-based treatment does not involve the use of medications, needles, or incisions.
During the initial consultation, the CoolSculpting expert will inform the patient about this procedure and its fat elimination outcomes.
The Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery and Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons, provide CoolSculpting body contouring to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding communities.
CoolSculpting is a patented system that has received FDA-clearance. It removes targeted fat deposits externally by freezing the fat. The patient will be comfortably seated in the treatment room as the CoolSculpting applicator will gradually freeze the fat cells.
A single treatment will take around one hour to complete, and it can conveniently fit into a patient’s work or social schedule. The patient can resume their normal routine for the day after their CoolSculpting treatment sessions.
The undesirable fat cells will begin to crystallize and die upon being frozen. Over the next few weeks, the body will eliminate these dead fat cells via its natural metabolic processes. Generally, patients experience a noticeable difference after only one treatment session.
However, the patient may require multiple sessions to achieve more fat reduction. Most patients will accomplish around 20 percent fat reduction in the treated sites. The most dramatic outcomes become apparent in around two to four months after the CoolSculpting procedure.
Many patients achieve satisfactory results with only one CoolSculpting treatment session, which can reduce fat by up to 20 percent in the treated area. But if the patient needs more fat reduction in various body areas, they may require more than one treatment session.
The patient’s personal goals, body type, and health condition will influence these decisions.
Permanent Freedom from Fat
The innovative cooling mechanism of CoolSculpting has been designed by Harvard scientists. At the time of the treatment, fat cells are exposed to controlled cold temperatures. This causes them to freeze and slowly break down. The body will remove these dead cells through its natural metabolic processes over the next few weeks.
CoolSculpting removes fat cells in the treated area permanently. These fat cells cannot return, but CoolSculpting cannot replace a balanced diet and exercise regimen.
A healthy lifestyle will prevent the development of new fat cells in the treated sites, allowing the outcomes of CoolSculpting to sustain permanently.
Previous Patient Feedback
New patients can view testimonials and feedback from previous patients who have received CoolSculpting. On top of this, there are various online forums and sites where previous patients may have shared their experiences with this cutting-edge procedure.
It is important for patients to understand that CoolSculpting is not meant to be a weight-loss procedure. Rather, it is a fat-loss treatment which can improve the contours of the body.
