Do you have stubborn fat around your midsection that you have not been able to eliminate through rigorous diet and exercise? If you want to get rid of these fat deposits without surgery, and you are at or near your ideal weight, CoolSculpting® is an FDA-approved, non-invasive fat reduction treatment that can help you achieve your desired look. This innovative treatment, available from our board-certified plastic surgeon requires no anesthesia or incisions. CoolSculpting® is designed to eliminate excess fat cells naturally and gradually around the abdomen, lower back, and hips and thighs. Depending on your ultimate needs and goals, this procedure can often serve as an alternative to liposuction or other surgical fat reduction options.
How Does It Work?
CoolSculpting® uses a carefully controlled cooling technique called cryolipolysis to target the fat cells in the treatment area (any surrounding skin and tissue are unharmed during the process). A specialized cooling device is pressed against the target areas, which cools and ultimately shrinks the targeted fat cells also tightening the skin. These fat cells are later filtered from the body through natural processes.
What to Expect?
CoolSculpting® typically takes no longer than an hour per treatment area and many patients can have this treatment performed during break hours and resume normal activities right after the procedure. During the procedure, patients may experience a mild sensation of pulling, tugging, or pinching around treatment sites. Any side effects following the procedure like, mild numbness, tingling, or redness typically subsides quickly, and many patients do not even experience any significant side effects at all. Our Patients who have undergone the CoolSculpting in Chennai often describes the procedure as a pleasant and painless process. Since this isn’t a surgical procedure, there is generally no downtime following CoolSculpting. Multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve optimal results, and full results can be observed within two to four months following the procedure.
