Want to look and feel your best in your favorite fashions this summer and beyond? Then you should know about the benefits that CoolSculpting in Phoenix can offer to help your body look great in your favorite swimsuit, bikini or outfit. CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction that is very effective at removing undesirable fat cells that you may have not been able to eliminate through diet or exercise. Our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. G. Robert Meger highly recommends this type of procedure for patients who are in good health and physically active who want to eliminate unwanted fat deposits especially around their thighs and waistline.
What is CoolSculpting?
This nonsurgical procedure features a state of the art process that freezes fat cells using low temperatures but without causing any damage or injury to tissues located nearby. This process of destroying undesirable fat cells is called cryolipolysis. Once targeted fat cells have undergone the CoolSculpting process, they can easily be metabolized by the body and disposed of as part of the body’s normal elimination process. Many of Dr. Meger’s patients who have opted for the CoolSculpting procedure have realized a 20% to 25% reduction of their fat cells after just one session.
What Should You Expect?
Each CoolSculpting treatment takes between 1 and 2 hours. No administration of anesthesia is required and this procedure is relatively pain-free. Patients usually feel a sensation of extreme coldness during the first 10 minutes of the procedure when cryolipolysis is occurring. Most patients are able to simply relax and unwind while the treatment is taking place, while others feel comfortable enough to read or watch television.
The sensation of prickling, soreness or numbness may be experienced for several weeks at the sight of the treatment, although any redness, bruising or swelling usually subsides within days. Over the course of several months, patients notice welcome changes as their body continues to eliminate fat cells.
Are You A Good Candidate?
Patients with good skin tone and elasticity experience the best results from CoolSculpting. Although this procedure is not a quick fix for weight loss or to address obesity issues, it is an excellent nonsurgical option to eliminate fat that has proven resistant to both diet and exercise.
