CoolSculpting® Liposuction

Removal of Localized Fat Deposits Without Surgery and Downtime

COOLSCULPTING® is a permanent bodily reshaping treatment. It is a cold-liposuction without surgery. CoolSculpting completely destroys unwanted pockets of fat cell from: Abdomen, Thighs (saddle bags), Flanks (love handles) and other parts of the body. It is safe, effective - average fat reduction of 22% in the treated area in only one session of treatment. Painless, without anaesthesia, no diet to follow, no downtime and long-lasting results.

At first, let us point out the difference between fat reduction and weight loss: It's a common misconception that weight loss and fat reduction are the same thing. They're not. When we lose weight, our fat cells become smaller, but the number of fat cells remains the same. When we gain weight, those fat cells become larger again. However, the CoolSculpting procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells in the treated areas. Obviously, fat cells that are no longer there can't get bigger.

It uses advanced cooling technology called Cryolipolysis to selectively target fat bulges and eliminate fat cells through a gradual process that does not harm the surrounding tissues. The procedure is for spot reduction of fat cells. It is not a weight-loss solution and it does not replace traditional methods, such as surgical liposuction. It is a permanent bodily reshaping treatment but someone who is overweight must expect to see less visible improvement than someone who has smaller fat deposits. Clinical studies have shown that the CoolSculpting procedure will remove fat cells naturally.  It is a procedure without needle and without laser that gives a loss of about 22% of the targeted fat cells secondary to a complete destruction of those fat cells.

Typically, there is minimal discomfort and recovery time after the CoolSculpting procedure. Most patients are able to return to their daily routine immediately after the procedure.

Following the procedure a gradual reduction in the thickness of the fat layer will take place. You may start to see changes as early as three weeks after the CoolSculpting procedure and you will experience the most dramatic results after one to three months. Your body will continue naturally to process the injured fat cells from your body for approximately four months after your procedure.

After your procedure maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine is important because a weight gain will prevent you from appreciating the full result of your bodily reshaping treatment.
