Men and women who are concerned about stubborn localized fat deposits and do not want to go under the knife to remove them can benefit from CoolSculpting at bodySCULPT®. The plastic surgeons at this AAAASF-accredited surgical practice in Manhattan, New York City are experts in this non-invasive procedure that utilizes advanced cooling technology to eliminate excess fat.
Developed by Zeltiq Aesthetics, the CoolSculpting device is based on the scientific principle of cryolipolysis that fat cells are more vulnerable to energy extraction than surrounding tissue. This safe FDA-approved procedure can remove stubborn fat bulges effectively from areas such as the abdomen, love handles, bra rolls and muffin-tops without harming the surrounding tissues or skin.
Unlike other fat removal procedures, this treatment does not involve any surgical incisions, needles, pain, and anesthesia. After the cooling applicator is placed on the treatment site, the cooling plates are activated to the specific temperature that breaks down the fat cells. The body absorbs these dead fat cells and eliminates them naturally via normal metabolic processes. The treatment does not affect the skin, nerves, or blood vessels.
A typical treatment takes about 1-3 hours. There is no recovery time and most patients resume normal activities immediately. Additional procedures may be administered to achieve greater fat reduction two to four months after the initial procedure.
As a completely non-surgical option, CoolSculpting Zeltiq offers patients many benefits over other options:
- Simple, painless procedure
- No anesthesia
- No pre-surgical preparations
- No scars
- Quick recovery
