CoolSculpting is a new FDA approved alternative to non-surgical fat reduction. Fat cells in certain areas of your body can be stubborn and resistant to diet and exercise. These cells can settle around your mid section and are commonly referred to as “love handles”, “muffin tops” and “back fat”. For this unwanted excess fat, CoolSculpting can help eliminate it without surgery.
CoolSculpting is a treatment offered by Dr. Edward S. Kole to help patients eliminate fat without having to undergo surgery and anesthesia. The treatment can be performed on areas of excess fat such as patient’s trunk, abdomen, back, arms, thighs, and flanks. It is associated with no pain, no surgery, no incisions, and with no downtime.
Am I A Good Candidate for CoolSculpting?
During your consultation with Dr. Edward S. Kole, he will determine if you are a good candidate for the treatment. Typically, patients within 20 percent of their optimal weight and patients who are at their stable weight but have persistent fat deposits are good candidates for the CoolSculpting treatments. CoolSculpting should not be thought of as a replacement for diet, exercise, or even surgery. Dr. Kole can provide helpful tips on lifestyle changes, including healthy eating habits and exercise and weight loss tips. If he finds that you are not a good candidate for the treatment, Dr. Kole offers a variety of other safe and effective body contouring alternatives like liposuction and tummy tucks.
How Does CoolScultpting Work?
After your consultation and evaluation by Dr. Kole, an individualized treatment plan will be developed for you to achieve your goals. The treatment is performed in our CoolSculpting suite where you can relax, read, nap or watch movies on our large screen TV. On your visit for the treatment, Dr. Kole will apply CoolSculpting technology to freeze the fat cells underneath the skin. The fat cells will gradually die over a period of a few months and are eliminated naturally from the body. Results from the treatment can be seen starting in about three weeks after the CoolSculpting treatment and the final results can be seen about three months after the treatment.
As with all body contouring treatments and surgery, results are more effective for patients who exercise regularly and maintain a healthy diet. As with liposuction since the fat cells are killed and removed from your body outcomes can be permanent if a healthy weight is maintained.
