Excessive weight gain can cause a person to feel unhappy with their figure. For some, exercise and dieting can help address the problem. For those who have not had any luck even after a long struggle, there are several cosmetic procedures that work wonders. There are surgical procedures, minimally invasive options, and even non-invasive techniques that are easy and safe. Belonging to the last category is CoolSculpting, which has been very popular recently.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved non-surgical non-invasive method of fat reduction. During the procedure, the targeted fat cells are frozen, causing controlled cell death. Over time, the body filters out these cells, resulting in a loss of volume in the treatment area.
This procedure can be used for all those candidates who are struggling to lose stubborn fat. The effectiveness of the procedure and the success rate are what make this a very popular choice all over the world. Another great aspect of this procedure is that the natural-looking results last for a very long time.
Preparing For The Procedure
The preparation starts with the identification of the best plastic surgeon to perform the procedure. Choose a plastic surgeon who is well-trained and has a good amount of experience in performing this procedure successfully.
You will then come in for a consultation, where you will talk to the plastic surgeon about your problem and your aesthetic goals. This will help the plastic surgeon devise the ideal treatment plan to address the problem areas. Men and women can both find great results with the CoolSculpting technique.
This procedure is precise and safe and can be customized to suit every body type. The problematic areas can be targeted without affecting the nearby regions. The technique can be used to eliminate fat in the abdomen, flanks, inner thighs, outer thighs, chin, and upper arms.
Before the procedure, it’s important to maintain either a healthy weight or a weight that is close to the healthy range and is stable. This procedure is used for contouring and is not intended for dramatic weight loss.
People who have had other cosmetic procedures in the past can also opt for CoolSculpting.
What Happens During The Procedure?
During the procedure, the treatment areas are first covered using gel pads to protect the external skin. The area is suctioned in place and then targeted cooling is performed, freezing the lipids in the targeted fat cells.
The precision of the technique ensures the safety of the surrounding cells by freezing only the fat cells. The frozen cells slowly start dying. Once they die and disintegrate, the body naturally eliminates them. As a result, the area being targeted appears trimmer than before. There is no injection, no incision, and no scars left. There is also almost zero downtime. The results get better day after day as the body starts discarding the fat cells.
