More and more men and women are opting for non-surgical options when it comes to fat reduction. Doing so allows them to address fat cells that are often unresponsive to diet and exercise alone. Treatments are generally quick, easy, and offer real results with almost no downtime.
At Longwood Plastic Surgery, we offer one of the most advanced non-invasive body contouring procedures on the market – CoolSculpting®. The revolutionary procedure has helped countless men and women feel better in their own skin thanks to significant fat reduction.
What Is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a powerful fat reduction procedure that’s done in-office. The FDA-approved procedure can help significantly eliminate unwanted fat throughout eight areas on the body including; flanks, abdomen, hips, inner/outer thighs, upper arms, buttocks, back fat, and the under-chin area.
CoolSculpting®: The Technology Explained
CoolSculpting® uses a patented fat-freezing technology known as cryolipolysis. A specialized handpiece delivers controlled thermal energy to target and rupture unwanted fat cells. Over the course of 30-60 minutes, these cells will be damaged enough that they begin to die off. CoolSculpting® doesn’t harm surrounding tissue and only affects localized fat pockets deep below the surface of the skin.
What Happens to Fat?
Once fat cells are damaged, they’re eventually metabolized by the body. With time, they’ll be completely flushed leaving you with slimmer, more defined contours. Unlike traditional weight loss methods, CoolSculpting® helps to eliminate fat cells for good. After pockets of fat are treated, they’re unable to return on their own.
When Can I See Results?
Results from CoolSculpting® are generally gradual and progressive. Initial results can typically be seen in about two weeks with an optimal outcome after each session in several months. CoolSculpting® can reduce the number of fat cells within a treatment area by up to 27% in 6-months.
Although you’ll likely be able to see results after just one session, most patients need a series of CoolSculpting® treatments to get the results they want. Depending on your individual concerns and goals, your provider may suggest anywhere from 2-6 treatments. Your CoolSculpting® specialist will help determine what’s right for you at the time of your in-person consultation.
I was recommended to Dr. Morris through my doctor at BID-Needham. Due to prior surgeries, I had some issues and Dr. Morris is the best. He has done a fantastic job with my abdomen core and I feel and look fantastic.
