COOLSCULPTING CoolSculpting is revolutionizing the way men and women contour their body. In the past, plastic surgery procedures such as liposuction were the only way to effectively remove unwanted fat from specific areas of the body. Now, with CoolSculpting, patients in Virginia can now achieve the same results without having to undergo invasive surgeries. With CoolSculpting, patients can essentially freeze away fat without ever having a single incision on the skin! Drs. Vonu, Blanchard, Zwicklbauer, and Lofgren of the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads encourage patients to ask about this and other advanced methodologies available for addressing unwanted fat. How does CoolSculpting work? Our doctors describe CoolSculpting as a body contouring procedure that uses a process called cryolipolysis to target and remove unwanted fat on specific areas of the body. In doing this, it cool the fat down to a temperature point that damages it. Then, the body will use its lymphatic system to essentially flush out the damaged fat cells over several weeks. The results? Less fat in the treated area with noticeable results! The CoolSculpting device is used against the skin while patients relax in the treatment chair. Most patients experience a cooling sensation but find that it is well-tolerated without anesthetics. With several treatment sessions spaced weeks apart, patients can drop an entire pant size when treating the stomach and thigh area. This can be lifechanging for patients who have struggled with losing weight in these specific areas and desire better contours and curves without unwanted fat present. Who is a candidate for CoolSculpting? Most adult men and women in the area who are interested in targeting unwanted fat on a specific area of the body may be considered appropriate for this treatment. CoolSculpting does require patients to be in good overall health and wellness, and have realistic expectations for what can be achieved with this procedure.
