When it comes to plastic surgery we are delighted to report that our patient base at the Robert Zubowski MD Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Paramus, NJ is extremely well informed. Yet, there is always something more that we can add to their pool of knowledge during our one-to-one consultation, especially when they are considering one of the newer non-invasive modalities as an alternative to surgery.
CoolSculpting is among our favorite FDA-approved technologies to accomplish fat reduction of up to 20 percent during your first session. Unlike surgery you won’t require a general or local anesthetic during your treatment, and there is an insignificant amount of recovery time. We’re successfully using it to treat fatty areas in the mid-back, hips, love handles, neck, and the back of the arms. For those folks who want a somewhat flatter tummy, but aren’t ready to commit to a tummy tuck or liposuction, CoolSculpting could be a viable alternative. There’s no disputing that a tummy tuck will give you a flatter profile with quicker results but with attendant downtime. CoolSculpting results begin to appear two months post-retreatment and continue up to six months. Another plus, your regular routine will not be affected by a CoolSculpting procedure.
Here’s how it works: Targeted fat cells are frozen, causing them to be destroyed, and then naturally flushed from your system. We target one specific location for approximately 30 to 60 minutes, and multiple areas can be addressed during one treatment session, depending upon the work that needs to be done, your preferences, and your time constraints. Some patients have scheduled treatments that last up to six hours. Once you have realized CoolSculpting’s improvement, you may decide to repeat the treatment to increase its effectiveness by up to 50%.
