Many men and women experience stubborn areas of excess fat that cannot be effectively targeted with diet and exercise. While extensive fat removal procedures are commonly performed to restore more appealing contours to these areas, at Tarola Plastic Surgery we offer CoolSculpting® as a non-surgical, non-invasive solution to fat reduction and body contouring.
Located in Murfreesboro and Hendersonville in Tennessee, Tarola Plastic Surgery is led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Nicholas Tarola. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out how CoolSculpting® can literally freeze your stubborn areas of excess fat away.
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is an innovative technology developed by scientists at Harvard University and is the number one treatment for non-invasive fat reduction of the abdomen, love handles, thighs, and other areas of persistent, stubborn fat. CoolSculpting® uses patented Cryolipolysis® technology to freeze fat cells, permanently disabling them. The fat cells are then removed by the body during natural processes, and the remaining fat and skin adjust to accommodate the reduction in fat volume, creating real improvement in body contours.
What is the Difference Between Fat Reduction and Weight Loss?
The success behind CoolSculpting® has to do with fat reduction versus weight loss. During weight loss, existing fat cells shrink but the number of fat cells present remains the same. The fat reduction process created by Cryolipolysis® actually reduces the amount of fat cells in the treated area, creating real changes in body contour and shape that can be maintained through a healthy lifestyle of diet and exercise.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Candidates for this treatment are typically men and women who have areas of stubborn areas of body and who either do not want or do not qualify for surgery, who are generally in good health with no contraindicating medical conditions, and who have realistic expectations for treatment. CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss solution or a substitute for a healthy diet and exercise, but it can compliment an existing healthy lifestyle to help you achieve your body shaping goals.
Are There Any Side Effects?
As CoolSculpting® is non-surgical and non-invasive, it is a low-risk treatment for patients who qualify. A slight pinching sensation may be felt for the first few moments of the treatment, which typically subsides into a soothing experience where most patients are able to read, check mobile devices or even sleep during the duration. Treated areas may appear flushed or slightly pink afterward, but this typically only lasts during the first day.
