At the Robert Zubowski MD Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Paramus, NJ, we continually assess modalities that give our patients more cosmetic procedure choices.
Our criteria for incorporating a new cosmetic procedure, technology or modality into our medical practice are quite rigorous. It must be safe, FDA-approved, and perform as promised. The CoolSculpting® fat freezing, non invasive fat removal procedure meets all of our high standards and is ideal for patients who, despite exemplary dieting and exercise, haven’t been able to eliminate undesirable pockets of fat in specific areas of the body. A non-surgical non surgical fat removal alternative cosmetic procedure to traditional liposuction, CoolSculpting treatment is not meant for the obese individual, but rather for those folks who want a more sculptured face and/or body and turn to cosmetic surgery as a solution. We’re finding CoolSculpting it a useful technology in freezing fat cells for both men and women who want to improve a “double chin” or sagging neck, as well as producing the desired results in the arm, thigh, tummy and flank areas.
The duration and number of sessions is dependent on how many areas you wish treated. The CoolSculpting procedure works by freezing fat cells that subsequently die and then are eliminated from your body. It is a painless non-invasive cosmetic procedure, with no downtime or curtailing of your regular activities. Some patients experience transitory redness, minor bruising, tingling, numbness or discomfort in the treated areas.
Typically you can expect to recognize improvement in about three to four weeks post-treatment. Improvement will become more pronounced and gradually continue for up to four to six months after completion of your fat removal CoolSculpting sessions.
I, like most of my CoolSculpting patients, are quite impressed with the results.
