When patients are dealing with stubborn areas of fat around the midsection, arms, or other parts of the body, they may believe that their only option is plastic surgery. However, when people are unhappy with the results they have achieved with healthy eating and daily exercise, this doesn’t mean that liposuction or tummy tucks are the only methods of achieving better body contours. Dr. Ron Shelton of the NYC area can encourage patients to consider a treatment that has been cleared by the FDA called CoolSculpting®.
CoolSculpting® is a procedure that does not require any anesthetics and there is never an incision made in the skin. Instead, this treatment works by freezing fat cells. The results are not immediate, but occur over the course of several weeks and can continue up to six months after the initial treatment. Patients can have more than one session completed if they prefer more results, but many who have the procedure done around their abdomen and love handles will often experience a drop in clothing size after each procedure.
CoolSculpting® technology freezes away fat cells in the body and allows the body to flush them out naturally. Patients will find that they do not have to schedule downtime and healing as they would with traditional plastic surgeries. In fact, patients will not have to deal with any interruption in their day after their treatment and can go about their life with no downtime whatsoever. This fact is just one of the beneficial aspects of CoolSculpting® that many patients are excited about when they discover this state-of-the-art procedure. Patients are also happy to learn that the results they have achieved from this procedure are permanent so long as they maintain healthy lifestyles, enjoying regular activity and eating foods that are appropriate for their bodies.
