At the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads, patients in and around the community of Virginia can learn about a wide range of surgical procedures that can improve body contours. But what if you don’t want surgery? What if you want a way to target specific areas of the body without ever going under the surgeon’s knife? Adult men and women who have hit a plateau in their weight loss or body contouring goals and want to find a non-surgical way to improve their curves will want to ask their doctor at the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads about CoolSculpting.
Understanding how CoolSculpting works
For most patients, the manual removal of unwanted fat in the midsection via liposuction is a desirable choice to improve contours where diet and exercise cannot. However, CoolSculpting has the same effect without ever making an incision in the skin. The specialized device is used on the tummy area and cools the fat cells to the point where they are naturally removed from the body through the lymphatic system. This process, known as cryolipolysis, is a reliable and gradual way of achieving better body contours without surgical interventions. CoolSculpting is approved by the FDA and best for body contouring of the midsection.
Is CoolSculpting painful?
During CoolSculpting treatments, patients will relax on the treatment table as the device is used on the midsection. The device takes in skin and fat and freezes it, though the treatment process is comfortable for most of our patients. Patients will feel the cooling sensation, but it does not damage or impact the skin. Patients may have some mild redness and discomfort after their procedure, but this often resolves within a day or two.
