The holidays are often centered around food with family, desserts around every corner, and drinks with friends. It’s a great excuse to be self-indulgent, but when the holidays are over, you might be left with some extra unwanted fat. If you have trouble getting rid of stubborn fat areas, you might try freezing it away with CoolSculpting!
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
Eliminating stubborn fat without surgery might seem too good to be true, but CoolSculpting in Cleveland does just that. Through targeted cooling technology, CoolSculpting freezes the fat cells beneath the skin, causing them to die and be naturally eliminated for good. CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared for treating fatty areas in the abdomen, flank, bra area, back, under the buttocks, upper arms, and under the chin. Treatment with CoolSculpting takes an hour or two and will require no anesthesia or sedation. You might feel a cold sensation in the first few minutes, but as the area becomes numb, you should feel virtually no discomfort.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
After treatment with CoolSculpting, you will have no required downtime or restrictions and will be free to go about your regular day! You might experience some mild side effects such as redness, swelling, and skin sensitivity, but these should resolve within a few days. Over the next few months, your body will continue to flush out fat cells to reveal a more toned figure. You might begin to see results after just a few weeks, with more dramatic results after two months. Although your stubborn fat cells won’t return, you can still gain weight in untreated areas which can alter your results. You can keep your newly contoured figure by maintaining a healthy diet and regular exercise.
Where Can I Have my CoolSculpting Treatment?
CoolSculpting is offered at MedSpas and by nurses and physicians, but for best results, you should see a board-certified plastic surgeon. A certified plastic surgeon has extensive knowledge of body contouring procedures and can more safely and accurately treat your stubborn fat areas. In some cases, liposuction or a tummy tuck will deliver best results. A certified plastic surgeon can examine your areas of concern to decide if you are a good candidate for CoolScultping, or if a different procedure would be better for you.
If you are in the Cleveland, OH area, you can trust board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Husni, for your CoolSculpting treatment. If you’re ready to freeze away that holiday fat, contact our office today and we can schedule your consultation.
