At Plastic Surgery Center, P.C. we are excited to introduce CoolSculpting, a form of cryolipolysis.  This refers to a closed technique and non-invasive method of getting rid of fat through the application of a combination of pressure and controlled cold temperature.  The process takes an hour. It is FDA approved and it has been shown to be effective.  The process does not replace liposuction, which is more effective over broad surfaces and large areas such as heavy thighs.  However, it does lend itself well to areas that people commonly complain about, such as muffin tops, love handles, and fat folds above and below the bra strap. All of these areas are readily graspable between the fingers and are dealt with handily by the new technology.


Since it is a closed technique, there are no wound healing complications that need to be addressed and the process is comfortable enough to be done without anesthesia. It requires no down time and permits an immediate return to work.  It does not leave scars. Because it does not need to be done in an operating room and does not require surgery, the cost is low and it can be applied to multiple areas and can be repeated. 


If this sounds like what you have been hoping for, give us a call.  We will be very happy to schedule a consultation just for you.
