Reduce Fat with Freezing Technology
CoolSculpting® in Corpus Christi, TX
If you struggle to get rid of the final pockets of remaining fat on your abdomen or buttocks, there is a non-surgical treatment that can remove fat quickly and easily.
Ridding your body of stubborn fat through diet and exercise can be difficult. Body contouring with CoolSculpting® is an ideal solution for those who wish to eliminate stubborn fat pockets without surgery or invasive treatments.
What Is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive and FDA-cleared procedure that safely and effectively reduces fat. CoolSculpting® removes excess fatty deposits in specific areas of the body without anesthesia or significant downtime.
Who Is the Ideal CoolSculpting® Candidate?
If you live a healthy lifestyle but still have stubborn fat pockets, you may be the right candidate for a body sculpting treatment. CoolSculpting® is excellent at eliminating fat; however, it is not a weight-loss procedure or recommended for significant fat loss. This treatment can provide a quick and safe solution for excess fat on the buttocks and abdomen.
Those who already diet and exercise but are not getting the results they expect will benefit the most from treatment. This treatment is great for those who have already transformed their bodies with a weight-loss program and do not want to have surgical liposculpture to correct bothersome regions.
CoolSculpting® removes those last pockets of fat and gives the area a flatter and firmer appearance. Men and women of all ages can enjoy the slim body they are looking for after a single session.
If you are looking to remove more significant fat pockets, you may want to consider a surgical alternative like liposuction, 360 liposuction (which targets around the midsection), or liposculpture, all of which Dr. Vijay offers. While these techniques are still not weight-loss procedures, they can provide a substantial contouring transformation.
Who Isn’t a Candidate for CoolSculpting®?
An important aspect of understanding how CoolSculpting® works is knowing what it can and cannot do. CoolSculpting® can freeze fat from those who are at a healthy weight and have problem areas with stubborn fat. It is not a solution for those who need to lose significant weight because it was not designed to work that way.
If you are obese, you will be asked to lose some weight naturally (or through an approved weight-loss surgery). Once you reach your goal weight, you can undergo CoolSculpting® to help you get more dramatic body contouring results.
What Is the CoolSculpting® Procedure?
CoolSculpting® uses a non-invasive handpiece, which suctions onto the area of the body being treated. This handpiece remains in place throughout the entire one-hour treatment.
During this time, the temperature of the treated area is reduced to a level where fat cells begin to break down; this process is referred to as cryolipolysis.
As fat cells are broken down, your body’s immune system flushes them away from the site. The result is a significant decrease in the fat cells at the treated area, which can smooth out fat bulges and improve the appearance of your body.
The results are not seen immediately; instead, the maximum result will develop two to four months following treatment.
What to Expect From My CoolSculpting® Treatment?
During your consultation with Corpus Plastic Surgery, your CoolSculpting® provider will discuss your treatment options and expected results. CoolSculpting® is performed in our office.
CoolSculpting® uses an FDA-cleared cryolipolysis device that freezes the fat cells in the target area. The technology is a safe and effective alternative to surgical liposuction but usually does not provide the dramatic results that surgical liposculpture can provide. Patients will be comfortable during the treatment.
The treatment takes under an hour to complete. Results are long-lasting as long as the patient remains at a healthy weight.
After the treatment, there is no recovery or downtime, and you can get back to your daily routine. Most patients return to work immediately after treatment.
You will gain newfound confidence thanks to your tight and slim body with CoolSculpting®.
How Many CoolSculpting® Treatments Will I Need?
The total number of treatments necessary to achieve optimal results varies from one person to the next. Some people require multiple sessions to reach their aesthetic goals, while others are happy with their results after one treatment.
During your initial consultation, our Medical Aesthetician will review your health history, discuss your concerns, and help determine how many treatments will be necessary to reach your aesthetic goals.
When Will I See Results?
The results that come from CoolSculpting® are gradual. This is beneficial for those who don’t want anyone to know about their treatment or appear as though they had something done.
Results begin to show up in the months following your treatment as the body begins to eliminate the dead fat cells. Patients usually see a 20 to 25 percent reduction of fat in the area treated within one to three months post-treatment.
Patients looking to combine their fat reduction with additional muscle tone should consider following their CoolSculpting® treatment with CoolTone®. This non-surgical treatment helps to build and strengthen muscle tone.
