Excess pockets of fat on your body can often be resistant to even the healthiest diets and strictest exercise routines. Designed to target and remove stubborn fat, FDA-approved CoolSculpting® can be an excellent option for patients seeking a non-surgical method for fat reduction. Dr. Shehla Ebrahim, our fellowship-trained skin care professional, is highly experienced in non-invasive fat reduction and can utilize CoolSculpting® to help you remove localized fat pockets on your hips, back, arms, thighs, and other areas. With this state-of-the-art procedure, Dr. Ebrahim can help you achieve the contours you desire with beautiful results. Benefits of CoolSculpting®
CoolSculpting® is scientifically-proven to be an effective alternative to traditional fat reduction methods like liposuction. This advanced technique can be a great option for addressing stubborn fat on the hips, thighs, arms, back, stomach, and other areas of your body. Benefits of CoolSculpting® include:
- Non-surgical, non-invasive treatment
- Little to no downtime or recovery
- Can reduce excess fat in a number of body areas
- Natural-looking results
During your procedure, you may choose to either sit up or lie down for optimal comfort. Dr. Ebrahim will position the CoolSculpting® device over the targeted areas of fat that were predetermined during your initial consultation. The device then draws the skin up between two cooling panels and delivers an intense cooling sensation into the fat cells, causing the fat cells to shrink and break down. Over the next few months, the fat cells gradually leave your body through natural processes. The procedure generally takes about one to two hours depending on the extent of your needs and the number of areas you wish to address.
Recovery from CoolSculpting®
Recovery from CoolSculpting® will vary per individual, but you can typically expect to return to your normal routine the same day you have the procedure. Most patients experience some temporary numbness or redness in the treated areas after CoolSculpting®. Although rare, any discomfort can be relieved with medication. The most noticeable results from CoolSculpting® are usually apparent in about two to four months.
