Real Alternative to Liposuction
We all know these problem spots that no amount of weight loss and muscle toning makes a dent in. This FDA-approved technology makes it possible to get rid of all those fat buildup spots in a safe, non-invasive procedure that will help you achieve the body you have always wanted. The procedure is non-surgical – instead of cutting, sucking, or removing fat as in traditional methods, the Coolsculpting device freezes and kills fat cells inside your body. Unlike surgery, there is no risk of damaging surrounding tissue, since fat cells are more vulnerable to cold temperatures than other types of tissue. Your unwanted fat cells will be specifically targeted by a non-invasive applicator, allowing you to continue your normal life with no need for days dedicated to recovery.

The effects become visible within a month as your body undergoes apoptosis. Apoptosis is a natural everyday process where damaged cells are shed in order to make way for new, healthy cells to develop. Coolsculpting takes advantage of this process by applying temperatures cold enough to damage fat cells, but not cold enough to cause frostbite. Apoptosis in this case rids your body of excess fat without you even noticing. Within a month, flabby areas will begin to firm up as your body discards the dead fat cells and your skin pulls in.
Is “Freezing the fat” painful?
Because Coolsculpting targets problem areas by clamping them, pulling them into a vacuum and applying cold temperatures, it is normal to experience sensations of numbness and tugging during the procedure. There is a low to moderate level of pain following the procedure, usually a stinging sensation, as well as lingering numbness. This pain is temporary and will subside in the hours following treatment.
Is CoolSculpting safe?
Coolsculpting has been fully approved by the FDA since 2010 and is a completely non-invasive procedure, meaning it is a much safer alternative to liposuction. It has been covered on national TV and magazines and although more than 100,000 people have undergone it, no life-threatening complication has occurred. Dr. Daniel Behroozan, who performs all Coolsculpting procedures, will make sure prior to treatment that you are a good candidate and that you can safely undergo the treatment.

Coolsculpting is an excellent option for people with normal body weight who suffer from specific areas of fat that need to be flattened. It is not an alternative to aggressive surgical procedures that cover large body areas.. Unlike liposuction, there is no need for inserting tubes into the flesh and sucking out fat. With Coolsculpting, absolutely no incisions are involved. Dr. Behroozan chose to specialize in this technology since it is cost-effective and less time-consuming for the patient in comparison with traditional liposuction. You will remain fully awake during the procedure and can use the time to read, listen to music or entertain yourself. In addition, because it is non-invasive, Coolsculpting poses none of the known risks of liposuction, such as infection, embolism, fluid drainage, and anesthesia-related complications.
How many treatments will I need to get results?
It is up to you and Dr. Behroozan to determine how many are needed. Because Coolsculpting relies on the body’s natural processes to work, the results are very gradual, so it can take a few months to see the final results and to determine whether you might need more treatments. Our patients normally see results after just one Coolsculpting procedure. During your consultation, Dr. Behroozan will recommend a treatment plan that will best match your aesthetic goals.
Can Coolsculpting replace physical activity and balanced nutrition?
Coolsculpting should only be a supplement to the body you achieve by maintaining a healthy diet and a moderate to high exercise regimen. Don’t expect it to reduce more than 1-2 sizes in your pants – it is not the solution for people who want to lose a lot of weight.
