We all have them, pockets of stubborn body fat that no amount of exercising or dieting will treat. The fatty deposits are most often seen on the belly or abdomen, but they also occur on the inner and outer thighs or manifest as love handles.

Many are turning to CoolSculpting to help with the treatment of unwanted body fat without invasive surgery.

Until now, body contouring has always involved surgical procedures, the risk of infection, and extensive recovery times. It was used primarily to reduce excess skin after significant weight loss or reduce large fatty deposits.

Today, the concept of body sculpting has taken on new meaning and parameters through CoolSculpting®.

CoolSculpting Advantages

Stubborn body fat not only affects the way you look, but it also impacts your self-image and confidence level.

It can prevent you from wearing shorts, swimsuits and participating in outdoor activities. CoolSculptingcan has an enormous impact on your lifestyle and has a number of benefits over other methods including:

The process doesn’t require any type of surgery, leaves no scars, and doesn’t damage skin or nerves.

The potential for infection is greatly reduced with CoolSculptingsince no needles, scalpels, or other equipment is inserted into the skin.

About Difficult Fat Cells

CoolSculptingprovides a convenient and affordable means to reduce stubborn fat deposits that don’t respond to any other method. All fat cells are not the same and the deposits at the belly, thighs, and hips can be more resistant to reduction than others.

Fat deposits in the body are influenced by factors that include lifestyle, heredity, and hormones. It can make you look and feel overweight, even when you’re not. It impacts your self-image and can result in varying states of depression that can affect interactions with family, friends, co-workers, and overall quality of life.

An active lifestyle combined with a medical weight loss program can be an effective way to reduce visceral fat from the body not treated by CoolSculpting. This is why an evaluation is so important before considering CoolSculpting.

More Than Just An Image Issue

When fat accumulates in the abdominal region it can extend far throughout the surface layer (subcutaneous).

Excess fat interferes with the proper fit of your garments and sets up the potential for serious health issues that include diabetes, chronic inflammation, and the way in which your hormones function.

Excess fat affects women more than men, but it’s a risk for both genders and can appear at any age.

CoolSculptingreduces pesky bumps and bulges associated with muffin tops, stubborn belly fat, and unsightly thighs. It offers a holistic approach to body transformation that achieves the shape you want.

Diet and exercise are key elements in preventing the build-up of belly fat, but if you’re already carrying around a supply of the resistant fat cells… you’ve already discovered that a healthy diet and grueling exercise program have little to no effect. That’s where CoolSculptingcan makes a substantial difference in your confidence and the fit of your clothing.

Non-Invasive Fat Reduction

The completely non-surgical procedure presents minimal discomfort and you may experience a chilly sensation, along with a tugging feeling. During the procedure, you can read, check your email, surf the Web or even take a nap if you feel the inclination.

An average treatment takes approximately an hour, depending upon the area(s) and you can even return to work right after a session. There are no activity limitations after the procedure.

Each procedure is tailored to your body sculpting goals and some practices are able to provide treatment at multiple sites within the same visit. While it’s typically utilized on bulges in the abdomen, hips, and thighs, it can also be employed on the flanks and chin areas. After the treatments you may weigh the same, but you’ll look thinner and clothes will fit better.

The number of fat cells you have in your body is typically set during adolescence, but aging can change the way weight is gained and distributed. Dieting and exercise can shrink the size of fat cells but don’t reduce the overall number. CoolSculptingreduces the fat cells in the treated area by up to 20 percent and the body safely processes them.

The procedure is the number one non-invasive fat reduction procedure and is used worldwide. You can typically see results in as little as three weeks, with possibly the most dramatic results evident after two months, and your body can continue to reduce fat cells for up to six months following treatment.

The unique technique has gained popularity with celebrities of all ages who must appear at their best at all times. Those who have been reported to have utilized the treatment have done so to regain their pre-baby figures, provide body definition, and fit into form-fitting costumes for choice film roles.

Limiting factors

CoolSculptingisn’t an optimal solution for everyone, nor is it intended as a weight loss program? The technique is appropriate if you’re near your ideal weight, eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly, and need spot fat reduction. It’s not the right solution if you’re:

There are some medical conditions that would preclude treatment and an extensive, in-depth consultation with a clinician performing the procedure is required.

You don’t have to be a celebrity to have a slim, more sculpted body, and CoolSculptingis safe for men and women of all ages.

You no longer have to sacrifice the clothes and activities you want due to stubborn belly fat, love handles, or thunder thighs. It’s never too late to acquire the image of your dreams and Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre is currently scheduling consultations to see if you’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting®.
