More and more men and women are loving the body-sculpting, fat-freezing results of CoolSculpting. Now one of the most popular non-surgical fat reduction procedures in the country, CoolSculpting continues to help men and women slim their bodies and finally lose those stubborn areas of problem fat—all without any surgery or downtime.
We are excited to now offer the life-changing benefits of CoolSculpting to our patients at the Visage Surgical Institute in Medina, Ohio. Board certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Faisal Quereshy and his professional team can help you address the hard-to-lose fat that can often linger around your abdomen, hips, and thighs.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
When you hear about CoolSculpting, it could be hard to believe at first. Reducing stubborn fat cells without surgery may sound too good to be true, but each year, over four million treatments are performed, providing both men and women with the slimmer bodies they have been working toward. How is this possible?
CoolSculpting takes advantage of a scientifically proven process known as cryolipolysis—or more simply put, temperature-controlled fat freezing. Without harming the skin or surrounding tissue, CoolSculpting deeply cools the underlying fat cells, bringing them down to an extremely low temperature that causes them to freeze and crystallize. Over time, your body naturally expels these frozen fat cells from your body, leaving behind a slimmer figure in just a few treatments.
Is CoolSculpting the Right Choice for Me?
When you first come in for your fat reduction consultation, Dr. Quereshy will speak with you about your goals and analyze the condition to determine if you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting is best for men and women who are within roughly 30 pounds of their goal weight and currently living a healthy lifestyle.
CoolSculpting is intended for helping men and women lose the stubborn fat that has become resistant to traditional methods of diet and exercise.
How is CoolSculpting Performed?
Depending on your area(s) of treatment, a single CoolSculpting session should last only about 30 minutes to one hour. Many of Dr. Quereshy’s patients are able to fit a CoolSculpting treatment seamlessly within their normal schedules and can even return to work that same day.
During your CoolSculpting treatment, Dr. Quereshy will use CoolSculpting’s specially-created device to suction the target area of skin and fat. Deep cooling energy is then administered to the area, causing the underlying fat cells to freeze. Other areas of the body will be treated using one of CoolSculpting’s additional attachments (such as CoolMini™ for beneath the chin).
Because no anesthesia is required for CoolSculpting, you are free to work from a laptop, watch TV, read a book, or even take a nap during your treatment session. Once complete, you may notice some redness or swelling, but this will typically fade within a day or two.
When Will I Notice the Results of My CoolSculpting Treatment?
CoolSculpting is designed to provide our patients with natural-looking, gradual fat loss. Dr. Quereshy may recommend a series of multiple treatments to achieve your specific desired outcome.
Within the first month, you should start to notice a slimming of your treated area. The most dramatic results are often seen about two months after your treatment, although your body will continue to flush the frozen fat cells over the next 4-6 months.
