Losing weight is not easy, especially if you have a specific area you want to target. Sometimes people get fat deposits in places that are hard to lose it from, which can make the entire process of trying to lose fat very frustrating. Thankfully, there are procedures that your plastic surgeon can do to help you get the results you want, such as CoolSculpting. This is an exciting procedure that not many people have heard of just yet. But if they knew the benefits of CoolSculpting, they would definitely sign up for a consultation.
CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical procedure done by a physician who is specially trained to do it. Instead of helping you lose fat through diet or exercise or even lap band surgery, it helps melt away these troublesome deposits from very specific areas. For example, if you have fatty deposits on your back or abdomen, or under your arms or inner thighs, you can banish them without affecting the rest of your body.
This procedure uses a special machine that uses applied and controlled cooling to kill fat cells. Your body, sensing that they are dead, will naturally flush them out over time. The flushing process can take anywhere from 3 to 6 months. Each cooling session will take about an hour, and there is no scalpels, surgery, or even anesthesia needed.
Since this is not surgery, you will not have any scars. You also will not need to recover. Some people do this during their lunch hour, then go right back to work as if nothing happened. You do not have to take time off work or spend time away from your kids to recover like you would with surgery.
Since this is a mostly natural process, people will not be able to tell you got any work done. Unlike liposuction, where the difference is drastic an noticeable, this treatment is much more subtle. Though you will see results after every visit, the real effect happens gradually over time. People will think you are dieting or hit the gym, and would never guess that a plastic surgeon is involved.
This treatment is perfectly safe and has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration, also known as the FDA. The FDA would not approve it if the entire process was not safe. There is virtually no risk involved, but tons of potential reward to be had.
Besides not have a scar or the need to take time off work, there are other clear benefits. First is the confidence boost you will get. As your trouble fatty areas reduce, you will feel better about your body. When you get your confidence going, it improves your outlook and productivity in all aspects of life, giving you a mental boost as well.
Finally, another advantage is that the fat cells are gone forever from your body. With traditional diets, they simply shrink, but can fatten up again, giving you a fuller look. You could still gain weight again, but this time the fat will be more evenly distributed, giving you a more balanced look. However, with a proper diet and lifestyle, you can keep your newly slim body and all the confidence that comes with it.
