The world of plastic surgery has seen many advances in techniques and available procedures in the past decade, but one of the greatest became available very recently. CoolSculpting, the latest innovation in losing unwanted fat, is steadily growing in popularity in the U.S. and around the globe. Already over 1.5 million treatments have been administered worldwide. Plastic surgery doctors and practices are adopting and offering this amazing technology to their patients, and Basile Plastic Surgery is no exception.
Developed by Harvard University scientists, CoolSculpting is based on freezing technology known as Cryolipolysis. This is basically a big word to describe targeting and freezing unwanted fat cells with controlled cooling. The target area is treated with cold temperatures using the CoolSculpting device, causing the fat cells to crystallize and die. Once these cells die, they are naturally eliminated from the body over a period of several weeks. Fat cells are more prone to freezing than other types of cells in the body, so the right temperature for the right amount of time will have the desired effect without damaging other important tissues.
How CoolSculpting Can Help You
Fat is an important part of the body; it provides insulation that protects us from extreme cold or heat, and it serves as an important energy source. However, fat can also cause problems with self-image. Most people have stubborn areas of fat that won’t go away, even with diet and exercise. These areas include the hips, abdomen, and thighs. CoolSculpting is just the fix for these areas. The technology lets the doctor target only those areas that need some help without hurting the surrounding tissues.
CoolSculpting is also completely non-invasive and completely painless. In fact, most patients are able to fit their treatments into their busy days, get right up after the treatment, and go about their normal routine. You can go back for as many treatments as you want and it is extremely affordable compared to other plastic surgeries.
This technology isn’t designed to help you with dramatic weight loss. Diet and exercise are helpful tools for people who need to lose more than 30 pounds. However, for people who are between 10 and 30 pounds overweight with fat pockets that won’t go away even with a healthy lifestyle, CoolSculpting can help bring you to your ideal weight and body shape.
