CoolSculpting is a new technology for undesirable fat deposits

sculpt a better you, Coolsculpting

During pregnancy, you dream of life with your new baby and think about how wonderful it will be to fit into your old clothes again. Then you give birth, experience fatigue, emotional unrest and adjust to your exhausting new schedule. Finally, you get to your favorite clothing store only to have the salesperson say, “What month are you in?”

Or you may be an exercise junkie with a near perfect body except for a layer of fat around the midsection and some extra weight on your hips. Your mom has it, her mom has it and now it’s been given to you. You’re drenched in sweat daily, battling your bulge, only to find your muffin top persists in hanging on.

If one of these women is you, you may be excited about a new technology that promises to wipe out undesirable fat deposits in your abdomen, flanks, back and thighs. Unlike liposuction, CoolSculpting by Zeltiq requires no incisions, involves minimal discomfort, works for all skin types and requires little or no downtime.

CoolSculpting freezes away stubborn fat

CoolSculpting gets rid of fat using a form of controlled frostbite called cryolipolysis. During frostbite, research shows that fat cells freeze before skin. Cryolipolysis works in the same way, freezing the fat but not the overlying skin. The frozen fat dies and is naturally absorbed by your body over time. A session takes less than an hour and no anesthesia is needed.

Nonsurgical fat removal is best for those who are already fit but want to tackle those few extra inches. Call 205-980-1744 today to schedule your consultation for CoolSculpting non-surgical fat reduction in Birmingham, Alabama at Hedden Plastic Surgery & Spa Greystone.

Nonsurgical fat reduction usually requires little, if any, recovery. Some people experience redness, mild pain and bruising for a few days afterward. For most patients, full activity may be resumed immediately.

Results usually take from 2 to 4 months to appear. As long as you maintain your weight with your normal diet and exercise, your long-term results should remain stable.

Liposuction still best for large amounts of fat

CoolSculpting is much less aggressive than liposuction and only appropriate for small, isolated areas. If you need many repeat treatments, you may be better off with Liposuction. People with large bellies and loose skin will get much better results from surgery.
