Body Sculpting in L.A.—How to Choose What’s Right for You

Every day you’re bombarded with images, videos, and ads with the latest way to reach your ideal figure. From fad diets to liposuction, there are dozens of body sculpting options in the Los Angeles area. Many men and women who have lost weight through diet and exercise still struggle with common stubborn areas such as their “love handles,” stomach, and thighs and look for the best way to achieve the look they’ve been working toward. The trouble is, how do you choose the right body sculpting method or treatment for you?

It’s important for you to remember that body sculpting is not a substitute for weight loss. You also need to keep in mind that some of the products you’ve seen like paper wraps and special drinks won’t deliver on their promise to slim down your trouble areas. Additionally, liposuction is an invasive procedure that is costly and requires significant downtime to recover. Our cosmetic dermatologist, Dr. Fitzgerald offers non-invasive body sculpting with CoolSculpting®, CoolMini, and tightening with Thermal.

CoolSculpting® uses a cooling technology to target your fat cells. The precise cold temperature freezes the fat, which causes them to die. It doesn’t require surgery or significant recovery. Your dead fat cells will be eliminated naturally by your body over the weeks following your CoolSculpting® treatment. This innovative procedure is becoming more and more popular and can treat several areas including your stomach, “love handles,” thighs, and virtually any body part that can be isolated and placed between the cooling plates. CoolMini works just the same only for smaller areas of your body, specifically the dreaded “double chin” so many adults struggle with.
