What Is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is an exciting new body sculpting technique that helps patients rid themselves of unwanted areas of stubborn fat without having to undergo surgery. The procedure is safe, effective, and only takes a few minutes. Some patients who receive the treatment choose to read, listen to music, or even take a nap while our plastic surgeons effortlessly freeze away excess fat.
How Does CoolSculpting® Work?
CoolSculpting® relies on the fact that fat cells respond differently to cold temperatures than do other kinds of tissue. Based on a process developed by scientists at Boston’s Massachusetts General Hospital, CoolSculpting® lets cosmetic surgeons selectively target the fat cells that cause the unsightly bulges that so many of our Denver patients struggle with.
As the doctor directs the device at the targeted area, the underlying fat cells are killed by the cold, while other tissues remain alive and healthy. Over a period of weeks and months following your procedure, your body naturally eliminates these dead fat cells. And if you maintain a healthy lifestyle, they’ll never come back.
How Is CoolSculpting® Different from Liposuction?
Liposuction has been around for decades, and it’s a proven technique for removing unwanted fat cells. In the traditional liposuction procedure, the surgeon creates an incision in the skin and uses a suction device to physically remove fat cells from the body.
Because of the surgical nature of the treatment, however, some downtime is required for recovery. CoolSculpting®, however, is noninvasive and requires no incisions or stitches, so patients are able to return to normal activities almost immediately in most cases.
Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting®?
Good candidates for the CoolSculpting® procedure should be near their ideal body weight and able to maintain that weight through diet and exercise. The procedure is not intended for overall weight loss; it simply removes small amounts of stubborn fat from certain areas of the body, usually the abdomen, love handles, and thighs.
Our experienced plastic surgeons can determine if CoolSculpting® is right for you. If we determine that you’re not a good candidate for this technique, then we will be happy to discuss some of our other fat removal procedures with you.
If you have struggled with stubborn areas of body fat that just won’t go away despite your best efforts at diet and exercise, it’s time to learn about CoolSculpting®, the noninvasive alternative to liposuction.
