Preparing For CoolSculpting Body Contouring
Any special advance preparation may not be necessary for the CoolSculpting procedure. But it is vital that the patient is in good health and within a reasonably range of their optimal body weight.
The ideal candidate for a CoolSculpting procedure is healthy, fit, and looking for a non-surgical solution to eliminate their fat bulges.
As the cooling and suction technique that is used in CoolSculpting to freeze the fat can lead to some minor bruising, it is recommended to refrain from taking anti-inflammatory medications like aspirin before the procedure.
Continuing with a regular exercise and fitness regimen before the procedure can help patients to achieve more effectively outcomes with CoolSculpting. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding communities in this part of SoCal.
The time taken to complete a treatment session of CoolSculpting varies from one patient to another, but it may typically take a little less than an hour. The applicator should not be taken out for at least 40 minutes after being attached to the patient’s body in order to lose fat. Patients should wear loose fitting clothes that allow easy access to the treatment areas.
Tips for Preparation
Understand the process and create a list of questions
For your first CoolSculpting treatment session, the provider will address any questions that you may have before commencing the procedure. Make sure that you utilize this time to raise your concerns regarding the treatment. It is vital to gauge the benefits of the treatment and form realistic expectations from this treatment. Accurate advice from the treatment provider can help you prepare better and make informed choices.
Keep yourself entertained
Remember to get something with you to keep engaged and entertained during the CoolSculpting session. During the treatment session, you can read books, watch TV (House of Cards, The Good Wife, 24, The Shield, and so on), or even reply your emails and enjoy social media.
Many patients like to read books or listen to some music during a CoolSculpting session. If you are going to receive multiple procedures at the same time, it could take more time. Therefore, it is always a good idea to keep entertained and relaxed during the procedure.
Important Preparatory Guidelines
- Avoid tanning the treatment areas as it can increase sensitivity in the skin.
- Consult with your general physician if you take blood thinner drugs.
- Ensure that you do not undertake activities which can cause bruises, sores, or cuts in the areas that need to be treated as your session can be moved ahead if the skin in the treatment location is compromised.
- Avoid smoking to ensure a speedier recovery.
- Stay hydrated to help your body get rid of toxins and assist in the body-shaping results.
Working people may even schedule their CoolSculpting treatment session during their lunch hour from work. With meticulous preparation and planning they can complete the session swiftly and return to their workplace after the session. Dr. Gary Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas for CoolSculpting.
