One of the popular non-surgical procedures he provides to patients in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles is CoolSculpting.
What is CoolSculpting?
One of the common aesthetic concerns for many people is development of unwanted fat pockets in specific areas of the body. These bulges are made of stubborn fat tissue that may not respond to exercise and diet. Surgical, laser and heat-based treatments are generally used to reduce excess fat deposits and improve the body contours. CoolSculpting is a revolutionary technique that applies a non-invasive, non-heating approach to achieve the same results.
CoolSculpting applies a cooling effect in the targeted area with an aim to freeze the unwanted fat cells. The frozen cells gradually die and get eliminated from the body in a natural way. Patients who wish to remove excess fats from the abdominal area, love handles, thighs, hips, and buttocks and other areas can achieve their goal without having to undergo a surgery or experience heat-based or ultrasound treatment. Before and after photos of past patients reveal the significant effect that CoolSculpting can have in terms of improving the body’s contours.
Highly Safe Procedure
A growing number of patients in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and other areas are showing a preference for CoolSculping compared to other fat reduction techniques. Some patients are keen to avoid plastic surgery, or may not be fit to undergo a surgery. Some others may not even prefer laser or light based treatments, or may not be satisfied with the results of ultrasound based treatments for fat reduction. In all such cases, CoolSculpting provides an effective and highly safe option.
The risk of side effects may be the lowest with this procedure. Surgery and other techniques may cause some damage to the surrounding healthy tissue, but this risk is also nearly eliminated with CoolSculpting. It targets only the marked area with unwanted fat cells, and freezes them to death. The surrounding healthy tissue and outer skin do not receive any impact. The procedure has been cleared by the FDA. New patients can review before and after photos to learn about the results other people have already achieved from CoolSculpting.
It involves no anesthesia, incisions, needles or lasers. The downtime is practically nil in most cases, and patients can usually go back to their regular routine immediately. Pain and discomfort during the procedure is negligible compared to many other procedures. Dr. Motykie is an experienced cosmetic surgeon who recommends CoolSculpting if it matches the patient’s needs in the best possible way.
CoolSculpting for Busy People
A lot of people have a very busy life at the workplace, and do not find much spare time to undergo a cosmetic surgery even if they wish to. Busy mothers with little kids also usually have their hands full, and are not in a position to keep aside several days for a surgical procedure and the recovery period involved. For all such individuals, CoolSculping provides a very viable, non-surgical alternative.
The entire procedure can be completed in less than two hours, depending on the extent of fat reduction involved. A single sitting is usually sufficient to produce the desired outcomes. However, some patients may need multiple treatments as per their needs. There is not any downtime involved, and most patients can simply go back to their work the same day or the next day as per their convenience.
What CoolSculpting Cannot Do?
Dr. Gary Motykie will explain to his patients at the outset what CoolSculpting can or cannot do. It is important for a patient have realistic expectations from the procedure in order to achieve satisfactory results. Therefore, patients in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles can review before and after photos of CoolSculpting at Dr. Motykie’s office. This will give them a clear idea of what outcomes they can expect to achieve with this treatment.
Dr. Motykie will also make clear to the patients that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure. In fact, the procedure may not be recommended for a patient who is excessively overweight or obese. It is a fat reduction procedure that uses a freezing technology to freeze away unwanted fat cells. The goal is to improve the proportion, shape, and contours of targeted areas of the body.
