CoolSculpting: New Way To Slim Down Without Surgery

Body Contouring Without Surgery

Body contouring is possible for you through non-surgical, non-invasive methods with the modern medical technology known as CoolSculpting. Treating unwanted belly fat, “love handles,” inner thigh fat and fat under the chin has always been a frustrating problem for many—and it becomes especially frustrating when you’ve done everything you’re supposed to do insofar as diet and exercise is concerned but these pockets of fat don’t seem to want to go away.

CoolSculpting is a treatment specifically designed to target stubborn pockets of fat. The best part is how there is no downtime because there is no surgery, incisions, or injections of any kind.

An Effective Treatment

With all surgery, there’s some level of risk—but CoolSculpting doesn’t require surgery. People who choose CoolSculpting now have a safer alternative to surgery. In some cases, there are great risks associated with surgery due to a person’s general health—sometimes having surgery is impossible or inadvisable. CoolSculpting avoids this problem and treats the fat without downtime. Changes can be long-lasting so that you will look great from all angles and feel confident.

How Many Treatments Are Done Worldwide?

On an international scale, more than three million CoolSculpting treatments have been performed. People everywhere have been improving their body image—and they’ve been doing it without the need for expensive and invasive surgeries. The process behind CoolSculpting involves freezing fat cells using technology that will deliver results.

The way this procedure works is that the fat cells underneath the skin will be gently and effectively frozen without affecting the surrounding tissue. After they have been frozen, the cells will start to crystallize. As a result, the body will eliminate the dead cells naturally, leaving the patient with a more sculpted and toned body.

From Prestigious Beginnings

The CoolSculpting treatment was developed by world-renowned scientists at Harvard University and by the Massachusetts General Hospital. Now it has reached the Calgary Institute of Plastic Surgery, the largest CoolSculpting clinic in Western Canada. The method is excellent for targeting:

• Enlarged male breasts (Pseudogynecomastia)
• Stomach and Abdomen Areas
• Flanks and Love Handles
• The Back
• Thighs

What To Expect From The Treatment

During treatment, a patient can expect that the CoolSculpting procedure will give a cold and tingling sensation for the first five to 10 minutes. After that, they may feel intense cold and the treated part of the body may start to feel numb. With the majority of applicators, a vacuum will be used to draw fatty tissue in, and the individual might feel like they are being pulled, tugged, or experience a slight pinching feeling.

What is great about this procedure is because of the non-invasive nature of it, the patient can return to their normal activities after it’s complete—even going back to work on that same day. Typical but temporary side effects can range from swelling, redness, tingling, bruising, stinging, and mild soreness. Normally, this will occur only for a few hours after the applicator was removed, but there are cases where the redness continues for a few days to up to two weeks after, but it will generally resolve on its own. This safer solution to surgery will deliver powerful results. Scheduling a consultation is one of the best ways to have any questions answered and to determine if CoolSculpting is a good choice for you.
