CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure that can help target pockets of stubborn fat that you find difficult to get rid of, even with exercise and diet.
These fat pockets can prevent you from looking as toned as you want, which can be frustrating. CoolSculpting kills off fat cells with cold temperatures so that your body can eliminate them permanently.
At Moraitis Plastic Surgery, Dr. Isidoros Moraitis and his staff offer CoolSculpting’s body contouring benefits to residents of Clearwater, Palm Harbor, and New Port Richey, FL.
The Benefits of CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting remains one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures because of the many benefits it can offer.
Permanently and Naturally Eliminates Fat
When fat cells freeze, they die off. This allows your body to eliminate them through the lymphatic system. Unless you gain significant weight, the fat stays off.
The Results Look Completely Natural
Because the procedure relies on your lymphatic system to eliminate the fat cells, results can take time and will appear gradually over 1-3 months.
Slimming Effects Without the Downtime
CoolSculpting does not require any downtime. It is a completely non-invasive procedure that does not harm your skin or tissues. As soon as the session is over, you can return to your activities.
Effective Non-Invasive Treatment
You do not have to worry about needles or other invasive steps when you turn to CoolSculpting.
Experience 20% to 25% Fat Reduction
CoolSculpting studies have shown that the procedure can reduce fat in treatment areas by as much as 25%.
CoolSculpting has had FDA approval since 2010, making it a respected and safe procedure.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Most people are good candidates for CoolSculpting. Those best suited for the procedure are people who:
- Are in good overall health
- Have realistic expectations
- Do not want invasive procedures
- Have pinchable fat
- Are close to their ideal weight
You are not a good candidate if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, are breastfeeding, have serious medical conditions, or have unrealistic expectations.
How CoolSculpting Works
CoolSculpting uses applicators that target the fat cells in the treatment areas without harming any other cells. This is because fat cells are more sensitive to cold temperatures.
How Long Does a CoolSculpting Treatment Session Take?
How long the session takes can depend on the size of the treatment area and the number of treatment areas. Moraitis Plastic Surgery has DualSculpting, allowing you to get treatment to two areas simultaneously and shortening the overall procedure time.
After the treatment is over, we will massage the area to help break down fat cells even more so your body can eliminate them.
On average, treatments can take between 30 to 60 minutes.
How Many CoolSculpting Sessions Will I Need?
Various factors affect how many sessions of CoolSculpting you will need. Some of these factors include the treatment area, the results you want, your body fat percentage, and your body fat distribution. For most people, anywhere from 2-3 CoolSculpting sessions can offer results.
What to Expect After Treatment
Because CoolSculpting is not an invasive procedure, you can immediately return to your life and your regular activities. There is no downtime to worry about.
Can CoolSculpting Be Combined with Other Procedures?
CoolSculpting can be very effective when combined with a tummy tuck since it can enhance fat reduction. It can also be part of a mommy makeover procedure, together with breast augmentation and liposuction.
