Thank you so much for giving me a new youthful appearance. Thanks for your professionalism, expertise, and keeping me safe during surgery. Couldn't have done it without your wonderful care.
— Satisfied Client
You have done everything right… you exercise regularly and despite a healthy diet you just can’t seem to get rid of those ‘love handles’. These stubborn areas can be disheartening and a persistent blow to one’s self-confidence. Many are faced with the dilemma that ‘it’s not a lot of fat, but enough to make me self-conscious’. In your mind it doesn’t warrant a surgical procedure yet you’re tempted.
Coolsculpting® (by Zeltiq®) is a revolutionary, non-invasive technology that can help you eliminate these stubborn ‘fat pockets’ forever. Taking advantage of how the cells in our body react to cool temperatures,
selected fat pockets are cooled to just above freezing where fat turns from a liquid to a solid (‘crystalizes’). The body reacts by triggering an inflammatory response that then, over the next several weeks, naturally disposes of the damaged fat cells. This gradual, natural removal of fat cells dramatically improves the contour your body.
How its done?
The area being targeted for treatment is gently drawn between two cooling pads using a vacuum applicator. As the cooling goes to work, you will feel pressure and intense cold that goes away over 10-15 minutes as the skin becomes numb. Generally, the procedure often takes 1-2 hours to complete and no anesthesia is required. The procedure is in fact so comfortable that often times, patients spend their time reading or working on their laptops!
Why choose us?
Although the procedure may seem simple, getting the results you desire requires a skilled practitioner that understands where and how to use the Coolsculpting® applicator to achieve the desired results. At the WSC, our board-certified plastic surgeons and medical professionals have extensive experience in this revolutionary new technique and will work with you to determine how best to achieve your goals. We do our best to keep you informed, put you at ease and provide you with a satisfying convenient experience.
Am I a candidate?
It is important to realize that Coolsculpting® is NOT a short-cut to weight loss or a substitute for proper diet and exercise. The goal is not to lose weight but to improve body contour. If you are frustrated and self-conscious with persistent ‘bulges’ that will not go away despite your best efforts… If you are in good general health, at a stable weight and have specific but realistic goals for the improvement of your appearance… this procedure may be for you.
Patients can return to normal activities immediately after the procedure. Some patients may experience redness, minor bruising, tingling or numbness in the treated area that quickly dissipates. As fat cells are resorbed by the body, you will notice positive results developing gradually over 1-3 months after the procedure.
What do I do?
Our goal is to provide you with the information required to ease the decision-making process.
