Stubborn areas of excess body fat are a common cosmetic concern among men and women who come to our plastic surgery practice. For individuals who desire leaner body contours, non-surgical CoolSculpting® treatments may be the ideal solution for resculpting problematic areas like the abdomen, flanks, hips, thighs, and back. The CoolSculpting® system is FDA-approved to reduce fat volume through a process called Cryolipolysis®. During treatment, CoolSculpting® freezes and destroys fat cells in targeted areas. The fat cells can then be filtered from the body through natural metabolic processes.
The first step in deciding if CoolSculpting® is right for you is a consultation with our plastic surgeon, John Sarbak, MD. During your appointment, Dr. Sarbak will evaluate the areas you would like to have treated with CoolSculpting® to determine if this technique can deliver the level of results you desire. Ideal candidates for CoolSculpting®:
- Have reasonable expectations of the results they can achieve with treatment
- Prefer a non-surgical, non-invasive option for fat reduction
- Are at or around their ideal weight, but have areas of isolated fat that are resistant to changes in diet and exercise
- Understand that the full results of CoolSculpting® may take two to four months to be revealed
If recommended, it is possible to repeat CoolSculpting® sessions to achieve optimal levels of fat reduction. The customized treatment plan Dr. Sarbak develops is based entirely on your unique physical attributes and cosmetic goals.
