BlogVacation Ready: CoolSculpting Treatments

This summer, make sure you feel confident sitting poolside in your swimsuit. While many men and women share the dream of a slim waist, toned arms and sculpted abs, actually achieving the ideal physique can be a frustrating endeavor. Maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine can have truly rewarding and visible results, but sometimes stubborn of pockets refuse to budge, no matter how dedicated you are.

At South Shore Plastic Surgery, we are proud to offer noninvasive CoolSculpting treatments to our patients interested in nonsurgical fat loss. If you have ever felt discouraged by a lack of results while making sacrifices to build your dream body, then CoolSculpting can help give you the final push you need to finally meet your goals.

Tone the Abs, Sides and More

Some of the most common areas for stubborn pockets of fat to develop include the abdomen, thighs, arms, sides and neck. CoolSculpting is highly-versatile and can reduce fat located in most regions of the body, making it the perfect treatment to target just about anywhere you have unwanted fat. If you have lingering pockets of fat from previous pregnancies, weight fluctuation or are simply genetically predisposed to storing fat in hard to target places, then CoolSculpting can take care of it.

A Painless and Relaxing Fat Loss Procedure

CoolSculpting is a gentle, painless treatment that freezes away fat cells for good using a process called Cryolipolysis. The lipids in fat freeze at a higher temperature than other cells, so CoolSculpting can specifically target fat without harming the surrounding tissue. This precise and specific form of treatment means you do not experience any overly visible side effects or have to endure a painful procedure.

During treatment, the CoolSculpting applicator is placed on the targeted area of the body. Suction is used to hold the pocket of fat in between the applicator while it gets to work lowering the temperature of the tissue until fat cell death occurs. Once it reaches that optimal zone, the CoolSculpting device accurately maintains the temperature to ensure the treatment is safe and has no adverse effects. After you spend the one-hour treatment cycle reading a book, taking a nap or watching a movie, you are free to be on your way and resume all normal activities, no downtime necessary.

Building a Better You in a Matter of Months

CoolSculpting is an effective fat loss treatment, but it does require some patience as you wait for results to develop. The fat cells are destroyed for good, so you do not need to worry about them coming back, but the body will take two to three months to clear out the dead cells. You will see your results gradually improve during this time, as more and more of the fat cells are disposed of by the body.

Results are long-lasting, although you are not immune to gaining more weight through an unhealthy lifestyle. CoolSculpting is only meant to supplement healthy eating and exercise, so make sure you continue to focus on living clean to maintain your results. Each treatment eliminates an average of 25 percent of fat in the targeted area. While you will see an improvement with just a single treatment, we recommend two to six treatments for most patients, depending on how much fat they are targeting.
