Non-Invasive Body Contouring in New York and New Jersey
Advances in plastic surgery have made way for non-surgical and minimally invasive solutions for fat removal. Dr. Shinji Lee is pleased to offer CoolSculpting at Plastic Surgery Center 46. CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved treatment for removing stubborn fat deposits that do not respond to diet and exercise alone. Safe, minimally invasive and effective, CoolSculpting has helped millions of men and women achieve a slimmer and more attractive physique without the commitment of surgical procedures like liposuction. Dr Shinji Lee is pleased to offer CoolSculpting to patients in Manhattan and the surrounding area.
Can You Benefit from CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting can be used to remove fat bulges on the abdomen, submental area, thighs, flanks and upper arms. The non-surgical procedure is a great choice if you want to slim and reshape the contours of your body without needles, incisions, injections, anesthesia or the downtime associated with surgery.
Dr. Lee will meet with you personally to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for CoolSculpting. For best results, you must be within 30 pounds of your ideal weight but struggle with small pockets of fat that are resistant to weight loss efforts. Because CoolSculpting does not tighten loose skin, you must also have good skin elasticity. Once Dr. Lee determines that CoolSculpting is right for you, she will create a treatment plan tailored to your aesthetic needs. Additional treatment sessions may be necessary to achieve the best result.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
CoolSculpting uses advanced freezing technology to deliver controlled cooling to targeted fat cells. The fat cells crystallize (i.e., freeze) and die. They are gradually eliminated through the body’s waste removal processes. CoolSculpting is not painful and side effects are rare. Dr. Lee can perform one treatment session in approximately 30 minutes.
Before treatment, a protective gel will be applied on the targeted area. The excess fat will then be held between two cooling panels, which deliver controlled cooling to the tissues without harming the overlying skin. As the CoolSculpting device works, you may feel some slight pinching or pulling during treatment but this is generally tolerable. In fact, most patients choose to read, use their tablet or smartphone, or simply relax during treatment. Because there is no downtime with CoolSculpting, you will be free to resume your normal activities immediately after treatment. Minor side effects include bruising and redness, which should subside after a few days.
What Kind of Results Can You Expect?
Results become visible as the body eliminates the crystalized fat cells (as soon as three weeks after treatment). The final effects of CoolSculpting can take several months to become noticeable. Following treatment, the targeted area will appear flatter, slimmer and firmer.
Results with CoolSculpting are considered to be permanent because once the targeted fat cells are destroyed, they cannot return. However, regular exercise and a well-balanced diet are still important to maintain your slimmer and sculpted physique after CoolSculpting.
