Sometimes, diet and exercise alone aren't enough to get rid of stubborn deposits of fat throughout your body. That can be frustrating, particularly if you've lost a substantial amount of weight but still struggle to achieve your ideal body contour. Liposuction could get rid of that annoying fat, but it's an invasive surgical procedure that requires downtime and a lengthy recovery period. If you're a busy professional, you may not have time for that.
Enter CoolSculpting. This non-surgical, non-invasive procedure can permanently remove fat cells from trouble areas on your body. The team at Rebecca Fitzgerald Dermatology is dedicated to providing top-notch, compassionate care that delivers the results our patients desire. Our experienced CoolSculpting technicians can help you put the finishing touches on your weight-loss journey. Here are four reasons why we — and our patients — love the procedure.
CoolSculpting Can Remove Fat From Almost Anywhere
CoolSculpting can address problem areas of fat such as:
- Love handles
- Muffin tops
- Bra fat
- Upper arms
CoolSculpting is Non-Surgical and Non-Invasive
Before CoolSculpting, people who wanted to remove stubborn fat deposits had to rely on liposuction. That procedure is effective, but it's not for everyone. Liposuction is a serious surgical procedure. It can last up to four hours, during which you'll be under general anesthesia. Although it's generally safe, it carries the risks associated with any surgery for which you're anesthetized.
CoolSculpting, on the other hand, requires none of that. When you come in for your treatment, you'll be made comfortable before the CoolSculpting applicators are placed over the target areas. As CoolSculpting freezes away your fat cells, you may feel mild cold and discomfort, but won't experience serious pain. In fact, many of our patients relax, read a book, or answer emails during their procedure.
CoolSculpting is Fast and Efficient
If you're a stay-at-home-parent or a busy professional, you may not have the time to devote a full day to liposuction surgery, then more than a week to recover. CoolSculpting is the ideal fat-removal treatment for patients who can't take such a break.
CoolSculpting treatments can take as little as 30 minutes and rarely last more than an hour. You can get CoolSculpting on your lunch break and jump right back into your day.
CoolSculpting Requires No Downtime
You can go home immediately following liposuction, but you'll be laid up in bed for more than a week following surgery. It takes about 10 days for lipo patients to be able to return to work and four weeks to resume strenuous activity and exercise. Deep bruising and swelling may linger for up to six months.
After CoolSculpting, you'll deal with slight redness, swelling, and a tingling feeling for no longer than a few days. You'll be able to immediately resume your full routine, including work and exercise.
