CoolSculpting – No Surgery – No Downtime

The Skinny on CoolSculpting

The World’s Most Popular Non-Invasive Fat-Reduction Procedure

If you are annoyed with stubborn, exercise- and diet-resistant areas of fat on your body, you may be looking into various cosmetic approaches for reducing these fatty deposits. You’ve certainly heard of both liposuction and CoolSculpting®, which are two very different approaches for achieving this outcome. So, how can you decide which one is best for you?

At the Atlanta Institute for Facial Aesthetic Surgery, our patients often ask us to explain the difference, so here’s our quick guide to help you learn more about CoolSculpting.

Why CoolSculpting?

Liposuction vs. CoolSculpting: What You Need to Know

Of the two procedures, liposuction is a more aggressive and less gentle option. Liposuction is a surgical procedure that has been in use since the 1980s. The incisions for liposuction are typically small, so there isn’t much scarring associated with liposuction surgery. However, patients who undergo liposuction can expect to experience bruising and swelling, and there is an associated recovery period that lasts for a few weeks – during which people may have to avoid returning to work or participating in other daily activities.

As opposed to liposuction, CoolSculpting – also known as cryolipolysis – is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that doesn’t require any incisions, stitches or anesthesia. It helps permanently remove extra fat cells from underneath your skin without the need for surgery.

During a CoolSculpting session, Dr. Sinha will use a specially designed tool that clamps down on a roll of fat and quickly cools it to freezing temperature. In the weeks following the treatment, your body will naturally purge the frozen, dead fat cells through your liver.

CoolSculpting Isn’t a Weight-Loss Procedure

Many people confuse CoolSculpting with weight-loss procedures such as gastric bypass surgery, so it’s important to note the difference. Rather than helping obese people lose a dramatic amount of weight all over their bodies, CoolSculpting permanently removes small amounts of fat cells from specific, highly targeted areas.

Cryolipolysis cannot help you lose weight, and it is not an alternative to diet, exercise and other healthy lifestyle choices. However, many patients do discover that the results of their CoolSculpting treatments make them feel more enthusiastic about eating responsibly, sticking to a workout regimen and committing to taking better care of their bodies.

Good CoolSculpting Candidates

The best candidates for the CoolSculpting procedure already have a healthy weight, but are frustrated with conspicuous flab or bulges of fat in certain key parts of their body that do not respond well to exercise or dieting.

Although men and women tend to accumulate pockets of body fat in different areas, the CoolSculpting procedure has been proven effective for both men and women. CoolSculpting is also an ideal procedure for anyone who is seeking a non-surgical substitute for liposuction, either for personal preference or because of health difficulties that may increase their risk of undergoing surgery.

Improving the Appearance of Specific Body Parts

The CoolSculpting procedure is a safe and effective way to eliminate visible fat bulges and cellulite on the thighs, sides, buttocks, upper arms, abdomen, back and bra line.

CoolSculpting is also highly effective for patients who are unhappy with a double chin or fullness in their neck. Most patients are able to realize results after just one or two treatments for CoolSculpting double chin removal.

Because CoolSculpting is the No. 1 non-invasive fat-reduction procedure in the world, you can feel confident that it can help you finally get rid of those stubborn bulges, for good.
