Having cosmetic surgery to improve appearance is becoming increasingly popular. However, with busy work schedules and hectic social lives, many people just don’t have the time to spare for a long recovery process. That’s one of the reasons why non-invasive procedures are being widely accepted and CoolSculpting Zeltiq tops the list with superior results and virtually no downtime.
CoolSculpting – A Non-surgical Alternative to Liposuction
The FDA-approved CoolSculpting device makes use of advanced cooling technology to safely treat stubborn fat. In this completely non-surgical body contouring procedure, a specially designed cooling applicator is applied to the treatment site. The device selectively targets localized fat deposits and cools them. The frozen fat cells are expelled from the body naturally via normal bodily metabolic process.
The procedure can effectively treat the abdomen, love handles, bra rolls and muffin-tops. The duration of the session and the number of sessions would vary based on the areas being treated.
No Recovery Time
During this fat freezing procedure, you may feel some tugging, deep pulling, and pinching in the treatment area caused by application of vacuum pressure and also some intense cold, but these sensations pass. After the treatment, there could be some redness, minor bruising, stinging, discomfort or lack of sensation, but these conditions are temporary and resolve quickly and completely. Side effects are almost negligible but may vary with individuals. With CoolSculpting by Zeltiq, there is virtually no recovery time as
- There is no surgery and no downtime
- No anesthesia is needed
- This is a virtually pain free procedure
- Side effects are rare
People read, listen to music or use their laptops during the procedure and most can resume their normal activities immediately after the session. Many people notice changes as soon as three weeks after the treatment and more substantial results after two months. Even after the sessions are over, the body will expel fat cells for up to four to six months.
However, the information provided here is generally valid under normal conditions. Recovery may vary depending on each patient and the best way to get a better understanding of your expectation is to discuss matters with your physician.
Choose the Right Plastic Surgeon
If you are inspired to go in for the CoolSculpting procedure, the first step should be to determine if you are right candidate. Find a plastic surgeon that offers this treatment, has vast experience in body contouring and can provide you with a customized solution. Your physician will determine if you are the right candidate. This is not a weight loss solution – it is meant only for those who want to remove unwanted fat that is resistant to diet and exercise.
