The non-invasive CoolSculpting treatment for fat reduction is the “Best Allover Fat Fighter!”
Summer is the time when bikini season is in full bloom. However, many women feel embarrassed about their body shape and appearance of undesirable fat pockets, and may not be able to enjoy the summer in a bikini as much as they would want to.
Dr. Gary Motykie is a board certified plastic surgeon providing innovative solutions to reduce fat and help women get their body bikini ready. Dr. Motykie offers CoolSculpting, which is a completely non-invasive fat reduction procedure, to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and other neighborhoods and cities in this part of Southern California.
CoolSculpting is an FDA cleared procedure that involves a unique cooling process developed by Harvard scientists to freeze the fat cells away. The procedure works on the principle that fat cells respond faster to cold temperatures and get frozen to their death, while the surrounding healthy tissue remains unharmed.
The frozen cells gradually disintegrate and exit from the body through the natural metabolic activity. This leaves behind a slimmer, smoother shape that appears nicely sculpted. Customized CoolSculpting treatment plans can be created according to an individual’s cosmetic needs, time availability and budget.
Once the treatment plan is finalized, the provider will position the CoolSculpting device on the targeted area of the body and apply controlled cooling. The patient remains completely comfortable throughout the procedure, and can immediately return to their normal routine after the treatment session is over.
Results with CoolSculpting are noticeable and sustainable. The fat cells eliminated through this process are gone for good, and the woman is free to enjoy a new, more sculpted body that is ready for a bikini on the ocean or pool side.
Both women and men can benefit equally from CoolSculpting technique. The procedure can help them lose fat in targeted areas, such as the upper and lower abdomen, muffin tops, lower back, inner thighs, upper arms, and bra roll. CoolSculpting now also offers CoolMini technique, which can treat stubborn fat pockets in harder to reach areas such as below the chin.
On average, a person will need anywhere between two and six treatment sessions of CoolSculpting to achieve their fat reduction goals. Each session will be spaced a few weeks apart. Average treatment time in one session is about 40 minutes when the latest CoolSculpting treatment devices are used.
An individual requiring a higher volume of fat cell reduction or have a higher density of fatty tissue will usually require more treatment sessions to achieve their fat reduction goals. Experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas for CoolSculpting.
A patient with realistic expectations will be able to appreciate the results of CoolSculpting in a better way and feel more pleased with their new body image. Overweight patients may not achieve substantive improvement or may need more treatment sessions to meet their fat reduction goals. However, patients should be aware that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure, but a body contouring treatment.

Many people have the tendency to accumulate excess fats in certain areas that can create unsightly bulges and uneven body contours. While plastic surgery options such as liposuction are available to address this problem, surgery may not be a choice for many people for elective cosmetic reasons.
Especially for women who are not ready to put on their beach bikini, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive solution to enhance their body contours and restore their confidence about their body. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding locations.
For women who want to fall in love with their body again and look great in a bikini, CoolSculpting offers a completely non-invasive fat reduction solution. The procedure involves no cuts, incisions, needles or medications, and yet it can help an individual lose fat in targeted areas. This innovative procedure is based on an advanced cooling technology developed by Harvard scientists, which eliminates unwanted fat cells in a selective manner.
The affected area will be exposed to a controlled cold temperature with an aim to freeze the fat off to the point of its natural elimination from the body. Stubborn fat tissue from the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and flanks can be treated with CoolSculpting without involving any significant discomfort or downtime. The procedure will sculpt the fatty areas to create a slimmer and smoother overall body appearance.
The science behind CoolSculpting is known as cryolipolysis. This principle was established by scientists at Harvard University when they discovered that strong cooling effect can freeze and eliminate small pockets of fat cells. The scientists noticed a bunch of children who developed dimples while having popsicles. This led to focused research on cryolipolysis, and eventually led to the creation of CoolSculpting non-invasive procedure.
CoolSculpting now offers multiple devices, including the new CoolAdvantage applicator, which helps to cut down the treatment time by nearly half, while producing more uniform results across larger surface areas. Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas for CoolSculpting.
CoolSculpting can be used to treat small but stubborn fat pockets that are resistant to diet and exercise. Muffin tops and love handles are commonly treated with this procedure. The FDA has cleared various CoolSculpting devices for treatments of different areas ranging from the abdomen to flanks to submental area.
CoolMini is now FDA-cleared to treat difficult-to-reach areas such as the fat below the chin. Another applicator called CoolSmooth is created to address fat deposits in areas such as outer thighs. However, CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure, and it is not a substitute for a balanced diet, exercise and an active lifestyle.
The results will start showing in about two weeks after the first CoolSculpting treatment session. Most patients should undergo three to four treatments and wait for about three months to see the appearance of final results. Patients can comfortably return to their normal routine after a treatment session.

Among non-surgical fat reduction procedures available today, CoolSculpting is one of the leading options. The procedure is ideally suited for people who want to lose fat in certain areas of the body without having to undergo liposuction surgery. CoolSculpting holds the distinction of being the only FDA cleared, non-surgical fat reduction technique involving a unique cooling process.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting to suitable candidates who want to reduce stubborn fat pockets in areas such as thighs, buttocks, abdomen, upper arms, back, and neck. CoolSculpting will simply freeze the fat off, and eliminate it to reveal a more sculpted figure. Dr. Motykie provides this procedure to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding locations.
The idea to leverage the power of cold temperatures to get rid of unwanted fat tissue took shape at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, which is affiliated with the Harvard Medical School. Innovators and scientists at the institution developed cutting edge CoolSculpting technique to eliminate targeted fat cells and enhance body contours without surgery.
As the cool temperature gently reaches below the skin, the fat cells are the first to respond to its effect. As these cells become frozen, they begin to disintegrate. They gradually get removed from the body through its natural metabolic process, and the patient can lose fat in a completely non-invasive, natural looking, gradual manner.
CoolSculpting can be repeated over multiple treatment sessions to achieve comprehensive outcomes. Each treatment session will last for about 30 minutes to one hour. Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas for CoolSculpting.
One of the benefits of CoolSculpting is that it will freeze the fat cells and eliminate them permanently from the targeted area. The fat cells once gone, are gone for good. This is an advantage over several other non-invasive fat reduction techniques as well as diet programs, where the fat cells may return to the same area.
In any case, patients should be aware that CoolSculpting is not a replacement for a healthy diet and fitness regimen, which should be maintained throughout life to enjoy a slimmer and fitter body.
CoolSculpting offers an excellent advantage to working people and busy moms who want a fat reduction procedure that can fit within their busy schedules. CoolSculpting treatment involves no downtime, and patients can simply return to their normal routine after the treatment session. No significant post-treatment discomfort or downtime has been reported with CoolScultping.
The patient will remain completely comfortable during the CoolSculpting treatment session. Only a brief feeling of intense cold will be felt in the affected area during the procedure. The patient can read, use their mobile device, or even take a nap while the treatment is in progress. The procedure is totally safe and has received the FDA’s clearance to reduce undesirable fat bulges in certain areas of the body.

The year 2015 saw the emergence of two unique non-surgical procedures designed to help patients lose fat in the chin area. Both these procedures, Kybella Injections and CoolMini, were cleared by the FDA for cosmetic reduction of submental fat, which typically gives an unsightly appearance of double chin.
Kybella or ATX-101 has become the first and only FDA approved injectable treatment for the reduction of submental fat deposits. CoolMini, on the other hand, does not even involve needles and is a completely non-invasive device from the creators of CoolSculpting.
While Kybella involves injecting a medication into the fat tissue, CoolMini is designed to simply freeze the fat away using a unique cooling process. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides both Kybella and CoolMini to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding communities.
Kybella has earned the FDA’s approval after scientific studies and clinical trials have shown the safety and effectiveness of this injectable procedure. Kybella treatment can be customized according to the extent of fat reduction required in the under-chin area and unique anatomical aspects of the patient’s chin and face.
Kybella enables patients to lose fat in the submental area without surgery, and delivers highly targeted results. Therefore, the patient satisfaction levels are quite high with this innovative procedure. Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas for Kybella Injections.
The key ingredient of Kybella injections is deoxycholic acid, which is a natural agent found in the body to promote absorption of excess fats. Through Kybella injections, this substance is delivered directly into the stubborn submental tissue below the chin.
The medication triggers the disintegration of unwanted fat cells. The body eventually re-absorbs these dead cells, revealing an improved chin contour. The patient may require up to six treatment sessions of Kybella, each spaced one month apart.
The CoolMini applicator has been specially created to treat smaller and difficult-to-reach areas such as the submental area underneath the chin. The proven, scientifically designed cooling process of CoolMini will freeze the fat off, causing the destruction of isolated fat cells and their gradual removal from the body. Smaller amounts of fat tissue under the chin can be cleared quickly and efficiently with CoolMini.
A majority of patients will only need one to two CoolMini treatment sessions to reduce double chin, with each session lasting for about one hour. Nearly 20 percent of the fat in under-chin area can be reduced with the CoolMini fat reduction program.
Kybella chin fat reduction will involve numerous injections in each treatment session. On the other hand, CoolMini, just like CoolSculpting, is an entirely non-invasive procedure. CoolMini does not involve any needles, medication, or even local anesthesia.
Discomfort and downtime are mostly negligible with CoolMini treatment, and the results will appear gradually in a natural looking way. Patients should weigh their options carefully before choosing the most appropriate procedure in consultation with the treatment provider.
Women and men who are bothered by the appearance of unsightly fat pockets in specific areas of the body, but do not want to undergo a cosmetic surgery, may consider CoolSculpting. This is a revolutionary non-invasive fat reduction procedure that can help to improve body contours without any cuts, incisions, or needles.
It is important to choose a fully equipped and qualified medical spa in order to lose fat with an advanced and innovative procedure such as CoolSculpting. Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding communities have an opportunity to receive CoolSculpting at Motykie Medical Spa, which is a state of the art facility for such procedure.
CoolSculpting adopts a unique cooling process developed by Harvard scientists that is designed to freeze the fat away and eliminate it to restore slimmer contours. Optimal results with this procedure can be achieved at a renowned facility such as Motykie Med Spa that has a number of distinctive features to set it apart from others.
Motykie medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas for CoolSculpting and various other non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures.
Following his graduation in the challenging area of Bio-Medical Engineering, where he won the highest honors and multiple academic awards, Dr. Motykie went ahead to complete his M.D. degree as well as advanced training in plastic surgery. He is an award-winning, board certified plastic surgeon heading a premier cosmetic and reconstructive surgery practice.
Dr. Motykie applies the same highest standards and practices for procedures such as CoolSculpting, which are fundamental to advanced medical and surgical procedures. Patients have the advantage to receive CoolSculpting under the professional leadership and guidance of Dr. Motykie. They also have access to surgical treatment options as per their aesthetic needs when they receive CoolSculpting treatment.
Excess fat tissue in the submental area below the chin can give the unsightly appearance of a double chin. Liposuction is a common surgical technique to treat this condition, but now patients have two diverse treatment options, which are completely non-surgical. CoolSculpting and Kybella injectable treatment have been cleared by the FDA this year for chin fat reduction.
CoolMini by CoolSculpting is a unique device that is designed to freeze the fat in the submental area to reduce chin fat without surgery. Kybella or ATX-101, introduced by Kythera, involves multiple injections administered in the affected area to treat double chin. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides both CoolMini and Kybella procedures to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding communities.
In the early part of 2015, the FDA gave its approval to Kybella as the first and only non-surgical procedure specifically aimed at reducing submental fat to mitigate the appearance of a double chin. Kybella medication works quickly in the deeper layers of the skin to disintegrate stubborn fat cells and to help a patient lose fat in a non-surgical way. The procedure can be customized according to the unique aesthetic goals of a patient who wants an enhanced chin profile.
Kybella injectable treatment typically helps patients achieve higher levels of satisfaction because it produces significant aesthetic improvement in the neck and chin appearance without involving any cuts or incisions. Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas for Kybella injectable treatment.
Kybella injections are based on deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body to support fat absorption. When this substance is injected into the targeted submental fat area below the chin, it triggers the destruction of stubborn fat cells. The body gradually re-absorbs these cells, and the submental contours improve.
Each treatment session of Kybella will usually involve administering of several injections of Kybella. Up to six treatment sessions of Kybella may be recommended as per the needs of a patient. Each session will last for about 15 minutes, and there may be a gap of 30 days between two sessions.
CoolMini from Zeltiq operates on the same cooling principle as CoolSculpting. CoolMini has been designed specifically to treat smaller areas such as submental fat area more effectively. Its unique cooling process will freeze the fat cells, without causing any harm to the surrounding healthy tissue. The frozen cells will gradually disintegrate and leave the body naturally.
With the CoolMini applicator, it is possible to clear targeted amounts of submental fat faster and more efficiently. In just one to two treatment sessions of one hour each, the patient may be able to achieve about 20 percent submental fat reduction. The key difference from Kybella treatment is that CoolMini does not involve any needles or administering of any kind of medication. It simply freezes and eliminates the unwanted fat cells in a painless and completely non-invasive manner.
Fat reduction continues to be one of the topmost aesthetic needs of many Americans year after year. Stubborn fat cells in specific pockets of the body may fail to respond to diet and exercise, making it difficult for an individual to lose fat on their own. A number of surgical and non-surgical aesthetic procedures are available today that are specifically designed to reduce unwanted fat deposits.
One of the most popular among non-invasive fat reduction procedures is CoolSculpting, which is based on a cutting edge technique called Cryolipolysis. During the initial consultation, the treatment provider will explain the process to the patient. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting and other procedures to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding communities.
Cryolipolysis refers to the process of non-invasive cooling of the targeted fat tissue to induce lipolysis – the disintegration of fat cells – to reduce unwanted body fat without causing damage to surrounding healthy tissue. The scientific principle behind Cryolipolysis was discovered by Harvard affiliated scientists.
The research conducted by the scientists showed that under controlled conditions, subcutaneous fat cells are more vulnerable to the impact of cold temperature than other tissue. With this discovery, the scientists realized that if a specific area of the body is exposed to a targeted cooling process, it can freeze the fat cells selectively, without causing harm to the surrounding healthy cells.
This led to the development of the unique Cryolipolysis process, which became the foundation for the patented CoolSculpting procedure to reduce undesirable, stubborn fat deposits from the body without surgery. Dr. Gary Motykie is a leading cosmetic surgeon providing CoolSculpting and various other procedures to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and nearby locations.
The use of Cryolipolysis makes CoolSculpting a distinct procedure, which is fundamentally different from other non-invasive fat reduction modalities. Other methods typically involve necrotic cell death by causing aggressive damage to the fat with thermal energy, high intensity ultrasound waves, lasers, or chemical injections.
Challenges exist in these techniques with regard to targeting the precise tissue depth and avoiding damage to other structures. CoolSculpting technique, in sharp contrast, using Cryolipolysis induces apoptosis precisely in the fat cells to gradually and gently mitigate the fat layer while preserving the healthy tissue. Results are more predictable and natural looking with this Cryolipolysis based procedure.
Fat cell apoptosis occurs with the Cryolipolysis technique in the targeted areas of the body. This results in the release of cytokines and various other inflammatory mediators. These inflammatory cells slowly digest the frozen fat cells over a period of several weeks and months following the procedure.
Lipids from the fat cells are gradually released and transported via the lymphatic system to be processed, quite like fat from food. The lipid clearance process occurs at a gradual, natural pace, and as a result, there is no adverse or unhealthy impact on the blood lipids or liver function.
Accumulation of stubborn fat deposits in certain areas of the body such as the thighs, hips, abdomen, back, upper arms, calves, and chin is a common problem. Every year millions of women and men in the US seek cosmetic solutions to improve their body contours. One of the most effective and popular non-invasive treatments available today is CoolSculpting.
Another non-surgical procedure that the patients may consider is Zerona. These procedures can help a patient lose fat without surgery. Both CoolSculpting and Zerona are quite different in terms of their fat reduction approach, and the patient can make an informed choice in consultation with their treatment provider. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides body contouring procedures to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding communities.
CoolSculpting Before & After Photo Gallery
CoolSculpting has revolutionized the field of non-surgical body contouring because of its unique cooling process that is designed to freeze the fat away and restore more even and desirable contours. CoolSculpting involves a process called cryolipolysis. CoolSculpting treatment approach was developed by Harvard scientists, and it has continued to be the first choice for many body contouring patients ever since its introduction.
CoolSculpting causes the targeted fat cells to become frozen, and eventually die. The procedure is precise, and does not cause any harm to the surrounding healthy tissue and skin. The unwanted, frozen fat cells get disintegrated and gradually get eliminated from the body system in a natural way. Patients can expect to lose fat and see substantial results in about two months. Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas for CoolSculpting.
Zerona employs a low level laser technology that is designed to liquefy and shrink the targeted fat cells. It is important to have regularity and commitment to achieve desirable results with Zerona treatment. For about 15 days, the patient must visit the treatment center every other day to receive a 40-minute treatment session. Even if a single treatment session is missed, the patient bears the risk of jeopardizing the fat loss plan.
Zerona is essentially a heat based technique to liquefy the fat. CoolSculpting, on the other hand, applies a radically different cooling principle to freeze the fat. While Zerona is typically a treatment plan involving at least nine treatment sessions, CoolSculpting is relatively simpler. The average patient will need only about two treatment sessions with CoolSculpting to achieve optimal results, depending on the area of concern.
In terms of costing, CoolSculpting may prove to be a more cost-effective treatment option because of the lesser number of treatment sessions involved. It will also save the time and effort of the patient. Results with CoolSculpting may get established gradually over several weeks, providing more natural looking transformation.
Zerona, on the other hand, is only designed to shrink the fat cells. Therefore, the results with Zerona may be seen faster. However, while CoolSculpting eliminates the fat cells completely, it may not be so with Zerona. As a result, the fat elimination with CoolSculpting is permanent in nature, and the fat cells which are removed will not return.
Accumulation of unwanted fat cells in certain areas of the body is a common concern among both women and men. This may happen due to hereditary factors, sedentary lifestyle, fat-rich diet, disease, or other reasons. Many of the patients are reluctant to choose plastic surgery options such as liposuction to get rid of excess fat deposits.
In such cases, the cosmetic surgeon may recommend a non-surgical fat reduction procedure such as CoolSculpting or VelaShape. These are innovative procedures to make the patient lose fat without any cuts or incisions or even injections. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides these advanced non-surgical fat reduction procedures to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding communities.
CoolSculpting is a unique fat reduction technique that has revolutionized the field of non-surgical aesthetics. It involves a highly innovative cooling process that is designed to freeze the fat and cause it to disintegrate and get eliminated from the body in a natural way. The patient does not have to go through any prolonged period of preparation or treatment, and the downtime involved is negligible.
CoolSculpting avoids the risks that are typically associated with a surgical procedure, and achieves more subtle and natural-looking results. It will take about two to three months for the results to be established with CoolSculpting, but a patient will be able to lose about half an inch from their waistline after just a single treatment session lasting less than an hour. Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas for this procedure.
Multiple treatment sessions are usually recommended to achieve the desired degree of fat reduction. Most common areas with stubborn fat deposits that are treated with CoolSculpting include hips, thighs, abdomen, back, flanks, upper arms, calves, neck, and cheeks. Patients should know that CoolSculpting is not specifically designed to achieve skin tightening or remove cellulite, but it may provide marginal benefits in this aspect as the fat reduction occurs.
VelaShape procedure is also aimed at improving body contours in specific areas of the body. However, as compared to CoolSculpting, VelaShape is based on a radically opposite approach to improve the contours. This technique combines radio frequency (RF) waves, laser energy, and suctioning massage to reduce fat tissue and improve the contours.
VelaShape is primarily used to reduce the appearance of cellulite in areas such as the abdomen, love handles, buttocks, thighs, upper arms, and love handles. The procedure provides a firming and lifting impact to the skin because of the mechanical tissue manipulation, which leads to enhanced circulation and lymphatic drainage.
VelaShape feels like a warm deep tissue massage, as against CoolSculpting, which exposes the targeted areas to very cold temperatures. Visible results in terms of smoother skin can be seen after the first treatment session in most cases. Three to six treatments may be required overall to achieve optimal results. Patients should consult with the surgeon carefully in order to determine the body contouring procedure that will be most suited to meet their personal aesthetic needs.
