Summer is the season for flaunting skin, but you may not be confident that your body is toned enough to bare it all. Lucky for you, there is a way to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat without a single incision. The New Orleans Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery is proud to offer the latest, cutting-edge technology for body sculpting. CoolSculpting® is an advanced, non-surgical procedure for slimming down and toning the body, and it’s now available at The New Orleans Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery to help you get the beach body you can flaunt this summer!
How CoolSculpting® Works
CoolSculpting® works by freezing away fat. Its technology reduces fat via “cryolypolosis,” which kills fat using cold temperatures. CoolSculpting’s unique technique safely delivers precise and controlled cold temperatures to the treated areas to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, the body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, resulting in a slimmer you.
What to Expect
Individualized CoolSculpting® treatment plans will be tailored towards a patient’s aesthetic goals and body type.
During the procedure, you will be able to relax in a comfortable position as the CoolSculpting® device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. Depending on how your body reacts to the treatment, the results of the procedure can be finalized after 16 weeks.
Some patients experience side effects after the CoolSculpting® procedure. You might experience mild side effects like swelling, numbness, bruising, soreness, and redness. These side effects are temporary, and should be gone after a week of healing.
Changes in your figure should gradually appear. You may expect to see your newly sculpted figure when the body completes its natural elimination of dead cells.
Candidates for CoolSculpting®
During the consultation, your attending surgeon will help you decide if CoolSculpting® is the right treatment for you. If these conditions apply to you, CoolSculpting® may be right for you:
- If you’re healthy and close to your ideal weight.
- If you have good skin elasticity
- If you don’t have the conditions like cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria.
