Innovative CoolSculpting is a fat diminishing treatment designed to sculpt and mold your body by freezing away tough fat cells without resorting to more invasive procedures. The technique includes the use of regulated cooling (cryolipolysis) to freeze fat cells so they may be naturally expelled from your body to reveal a smaller physique. At MIA Plastic Surgery in Houston, TX, led by plastic surgeon Dr. Phi P. Nguyen, we offer state-of-the-art CoolSculpting to help you meet your aesthetic goals. Schedule a consultation to learn more about cryolipolysis with CoolSculpting and decide if this treatment is right for you.
While this treatment has proven successful with both women and men of different ages, those who will benefit the most from CoolSculpting:
- Are within 30 pounds of their goal weight
- Struggle with stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to exercise and diet efforts
- Don't want or are not good candidates for more invasive procedures
- Have realistic expectations for the outcome of their treatment
After your consultation with Dr. Phi to plan your CoolSculpting treatments, your procedure will be scheduled. During your procedure, a specialized gel pad and the CoolSculpting handpiece will be applied to the chosen area and controlled cooling will start. The cooling, delivered by the applicator, will begin to attack and paralyze the fat cells. You will likely feel cold bursts at the time of your treatment, but this does not typically cause great discomfort. As the CoolSculpting applicator uses suction to move the targeted fat cells into the predetermined treatment area, you will likely feel a small amount of tugging or pinching, but these are normal sensations.
What to Expect
Since CoolSculpting is noninvasive, you can expect to return to daily activities following your treatment. In most circumstances, you can return to work or school immediately following your treatment. Side effects of the procedure usually include bruising, stinging, redness, swelling, and discomfort of the treated site. These side effects are temporary and usually subside in the days following your procedure. Expect to notice results in as little as three weeks while you will see the most obvious and dramatic results 1 – 3 months after your CoolSculpting treatment.
Plan Your Procedure
There is no such thing as the perfect body, and we all have things we wish to change, like stubborn areas of fat that will not respond to exercise and a healthy diet. Due to modern technology, you no longer have to choose between living with the undesired fat and undergoing liposuction. MIA Plastic Surgery is excited to offer Houston, TX men and women CoolSculpting treatments to minimize areas of stubborn fat without invasive procedures for a smaller, tauter body. Schedule a CoolSculpting consultation with Dr. Phi P. Nguyen to find out if you are an ideal candidate for CoolSculpting or if another procedure would better help you meet your aesthetic goals.
