Invasive lifts and tucks are effective, but many patients don’t realize how difficult the recovery can be. Following one of those operations, a patient might need to spend weeks in bed and avoid strenuous activities for well over a month. With our non-surgical body contouring procedures, we can safely destroy fat cells without making any openings or injecting foreign chemicals into your body. As an added bonus, you could maintain the results for years as long as you follow healthy lifestyle habits. Those are just a few of the reasons why many patients are now choosing non-surgical body contouring over invasive procedures.
The Truth about Stubborn Fatty Tissue
When it comes to losing weight, there are countless diet and exercise plans to choose from. Staying at a caloric deficit for an extended period of time will eventually result in weight loss, but the process can be very time-consuming and tiring. You might follow a strict diet for years without eradicating stubborn fat in the thighs, flanks, stomach, or upper arms. If you want to see results as quickly as possible, you might want to consider professional body contouring treatments such as CoolSculpting®. This amazing technology allows us to quickly target any pockets of fat you are struggling with.
A Look at CoolSculpting®
A few decades ago, two doctors noticed an unusual phenomenon when they regularly gave patients frozen popsicles. Over time, those patients began losing some of the excess fatty tissue in their cheeks. After carrying out a few experiments, the doctors realized that fat cells die off when they are exposed to cold temperatures. They then began looking for ways to freeze pockets of fat without harming any of the nearby tissue, and that is where CoolSculpting® came from. The CoolSculpting® machine is nothing more than a handheld vacuum device that brings fat down to very cold temperatures in a short period of time.
After the treatment is over, the patient’s body treats the fat cells just as if they were any other piece of damaged tissue. Over the course of a few months, the lymphatic system will attack and expel those cells. Some patients are perfectly happy with the results after a single appointment, but we generally suggest schedule at least five appointments. In between those sessions, patients must stick to a healthy diet and exercise if they want to enjoy the best results.
