CoolSculpting is a new technology that is quickly gaining in popularity. The non-surgical treatment is designed to reduce body fat in precise areas by taking advantage of cooling technology. This makes CoolSculpting an attractive alternative to traditional plastic surgery.
The Benefits of CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is often used as a practical alternative to plastic surgery for a number of reasons. Some of the most appealing reasons are:
- There is no pain involved.
- The process is fast.
- No needles are used.
- Procedure is performed as an outpatient.
- No down time.
- Impressive results.
CoolSculpting was designed by an international medical device company called ZELTIQ. The process uses Cryolipolysis, a procedure that selectively reduces fat. This procedure does not harm the tissue surrounding the fat, making it a very safe procedure. The fat cells are naturally harmed by the cold, which causes them to become smaller and die. The cooling process offers a more controlled way to sculpt the body.
Minimally invasive and non-invasive treatments are growing in popularity. CoolSculpting differs in the sense that the treatment targets cells over time, creating more gradual results.
The Ideal CoolSculpting Patient
To determine if you are the ideal CoolSculpting patient, you will first need to examine your weight reduction goals. The treatment isn’t intended to help people who are struggling with their weight. Instead, the treatment targets small fat pockets or bulges that the patient is uncomfortable with. It cannot replace a healthy diet and exercise and is meant to help those who are already at their ideal body weight.
The ideal candidate will have realistic goals when it comes to sculpting their bodies. Aside from the small areas that need improvement, the candidate will be ideally healthy and ready to make changes as needed.
Speaking with a plastic surgeon directly can help you understand more about CoolSculpting and how it can work for you. The plastic surgeon will go over all of the risks and benefits in full detail, as well as recommend different procedures if they are needed. Be open and honest with your plastic surgeon so that they can make accurate recommendations and help you get the results you desire.
How to Schedule a Consultation
To make an appointment to get a CoolSculpting treatment, you must first have an initial consultation. During this time, the plastic surgeon will give you instructions on how to care for your body before and after treatment. They will help ensure that the treatment will fit your lifestyle and that it is the most practical option available to you.
It all starts with your first appointment with the surgeon. Make sure to make a list of any questions you might have about the procedure and what to expect. This will help to ensure you aren’t left feeling uneasy about the procedure and what it has to offer you.
