Cryolipolysis refers to the scientific name for freezing fat. This process causes fat cells to crystallize, and these cells are then eliminated through the body’s natural metabolic processes. Most people know this treatment by its more popular name, Coolsculpting.
This procedure is also recognized as a fit and healthy individual’s secret to eliminating stubborn back fat. Women, specifically have sought this procedure to remove a version of back fat called “bra bulge.” Patients can lose fat without undergoing any cuts, incisions or injections.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.
Where does back fat come from?
Tummy fat and love handles are target areas that are always visible in the mirror. However, back fat is more elusive.
Three main groups of muscle known as the extensor, flexor and oblique, overlap or intersect to develop the human back. Those muscles and the skin begin to sag over time, creating pockets that fill with fat.
Previously, liposuction was the only technique to eliminate these bulges. This surgical procedure can with a certain level of risk. The adjacent tissue or muscle could become damaged or scarred. This would obviously run contrary to the premise of plastic surgery.
This issue created the need for an innovative and revolutionary procedure such as CoolSculpting. This treatment does not damage the surrounding tissue as only the fat is treated. There is no surgery, and CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment with minimal possibility of scarring.
A well-qualified technician simply applies a hand-piece to the skin which sucks only fat into the device and freezes the fat cells off.
How many treatments will it take?
Larger body areas, such as the back, usually require multiple treatments. There is no requirement for anesthesia, and the procedure does not involve any downtime.
The treatment could be completed in just one session with a larger-sized applicator, and the patient can resume their routine right after the procedure.
Fat in the upper back area may create bra bulge, which may be a woman’s concern. However, men are also equally likely to benefit from CoolSculpting. They too have backs with undesirable fat.
How Long Does It Take to See the Effects on Bra Fat?
The patient will notice visible improvements within a few days of their CoolSculpting session. But after a few weeks or months, the outcomes will improve even further. This controlled cooling technique will initially kill the fat cells.
However, to prevent the body from undergoing stress, more cells continue to die over time. The body then processes these annihilated cells and flushes them out through the liver and stools. Therefore, patients can expect to see the full outcomes of the procedure within around two months.
How Long Does it Take to Treat the Breast?
One treatment session will take between 35 to 60 minutes to complete, as with other body areas such as the upper arms, thighs, abdomen, and so on. Depending on the patient’s aesthetic goals, they may choose to undergo more than one procedure, which will require the same amount of time.
The patient can read a book, listen to music, text, or email on their phone, or even enjoy a short nap during their CoolSculpting treatment. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for CoolSculpting.
