What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical, non-invasive cosmetic procedure that applies freezing temperatures to the target area to safely freeze away fat. Because this is a non-invasive, painless procedure, you will not require anesthesia, and the results of the procedure will last for years.
Benefits of CoolSculpting®
CoolSculpting® can help you lose inches in problem areas, such as the tummy, buttocks, hips, arms, and thighs, by eliminating fatty deposits and increasing definition. CoolSculpting® is among the least invasive body contouring procedure in the industry today, so there are virtually no adverse effects associated with it. Because it requires no incisions or surgery, there is no scarring and no required period of recovery following treatment. The results of a CoolSculpting® treatment are subtle enough to mimic the effects of natural weight loss because the procedure causes fat cells to melt away gradually over time. CoolSculpting® is considered one of the safest body contouring procedures available today, and produces natural, long-lasting results.
Dr. Ekstrom discusses the importance of choosing a plastic surgeon for your Coolsculpting procedure:
Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting®?
Although CoolSculpting® is safe and highly effective, it is not the ideal solution for everyone. CoolSculpting® is basically recommended for adults who have already attained their ideal weight, but still have some stubborn bulges that aren’t responding to diet and exercise, usually in the thighs, back and belly. For patients who are more than 30 pounds overweight or who have accumulated fatty deposits in areas other than those mentioned, Dr. Ekstrom may recommend an alternate procedure such as liposuction.
What is the Difference Between CoolSculpting® and Liposuction?
The main distinction between liposuction and CoolSculpting® is that
CoolSculpting® is non-invasive and thus produces less dramatic results than liposuction. While CoolSculpting® reduces bulges, liposuction is capable of much more dramatic contouring and sculpting. Basically CoolSculpting® is ideal for treating small to moderate areas of fat while liposuction is recommended for larger areas and may be applied to any area of the body, while CoolSculpting® effectively reduces such fatty deposits as love handles, as well as bulges in the hips, thighs, and back. While both procedures provide permanent results, CoolSculpting® can eliminate up to 20 percent of fat cells per treated area, while liposuction may eliminate up to 70 percent of fat cells per area.
What is Involved in the CoolSculpting® Procedure?
CoolSculpting® works due to the fact that dramatic changes in temperature affect fat cells. CoolSculpting® is a simple, painless and non-invasive procedure that is performed in the doctor’s office using a cooling device that gently kills fat cells by freezing them. The body then naturally eliminates these dead fat cells over the course of time, instigating a process of natural weight-loss with increased contouring and toning continuing for several months following the procedure.
How Much Does CoolSculpting® Cost in Worcester?
The price of CoolSculpting® will vary between patients depending on which areas are being treated and how much fat must be extracted from each. CoolSculpting® is basically an elective cosmetic procedure, so most insurance providers will not cover the cost of treatment; nonetheless, our office provides easy financing and payment options to keep these procedures affordable for every patient.
CoolSculpting® provides a safe and effective way to eliminate stubborn fat cells permanently, resulting in a smoother more streamlined body contour.
