CoolSculpting is one of the most popular non-surgical procedures to reduce fat in certain areas of the body. This FDA cleared procedure involves a unique cooling process designed to freeze the fat and gradually eliminate it from the targeted area. This allows for slimmer contours to appear in a sustainable, natural looking manner.
Dr. Gary Motykie is a board certified plastic surgeon providing CoolSculpting and other innovative and advanced cosmetic body contouring procedures. Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding locations have an opportunity to receive state of the art treatments from Dr. Motykie.
CoolSculpting can help a patient lose fat in specific areas, including upper abdomen, lower abdomen, flanks or muffin tops, lower back, inner thighs, bra roll and upper arms. CoolSculpting now also offers the CoolMini device, which can treat fat in smaller, difficult to reach areas such as under the chin. The treatment provider will adopt a conservative approach and choose the most appropriate areas in order to create consistent and natural looking results.
Each patient’s anatomy is unique, and CoolSculpting may not be equally effective in treating every area of excess fat tissue. Therefore, the provider should adopt a customized treatment approach in order to help the patient achieve optimal outcomes. The advantage with CoolSculpting is that the fat cells once eliminated will not return, and the results will be permanent.
Extent of Treatment
CoolSculpting procedure will typically involve two to six treatment sessions, with each session scheduled a few weeks apart from the other. Originally, an average treatment session would last for about one hour, but with innovations in CoolSculpting treatment devices, now the treatment time has been reduced by about one-third for each session.
The number of treatment session varies for each patient because the procedure depends on a thermally induced fat cell injury, and gradual removal of the damaged cells from the treatment area. Therefore, patients requiring a larger volume of fat cell reduction or having a higher density of fatty tissue will often need more treatment sessions to achieve their desired results.
A stellar candidate for CoolSculpting would be an individual who is at or close to their ideal body weight with small to moderate bulges of fatty tissue in specific areas. A candidate who enjoys terrific health and has well-defined pockets of unwanted fat tissue will usually achieve the best outcomes from CoolSculpting.
Not a Weight Loss Procedure
Overweight patients will generally not achieve very significant improvement or may require more treatment sessions to achieve fat reduction. In any case, patients should note that CoolSculpting is a fat reduction treatment, and not intended to be a weight loss procedure. The procedure is specifically designed to improve body contours in targeted areas.
In most cases, patients will be able to notice an improvement in clothing fit and a reduction in the measurement of their waist, hip, and upper arm and thigh circumference. Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and other parts of the Southern California region for CoolSculpting and various other cosmetic procedures.
