K Plastic Surgery Adds the Latest CoolSculpting® Treatment!
We are excited to add the latest CoolSculpting® applicator to our arsenal for freezing fat. This new applicator allows us to treat the thighs. Unlike the previous applicators it is not vacuum based. Therefore it can treat areas that were not able to be “Coolsculpted” before. This is ideal for the outer thighs and other areas of non-pinchable fat bulges.
K Plastic Surgery is Excited to Introduce CoolSculpting® to Albany and the Surrounding Areas!
CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive procedure designed to gently and effectively reduce stubborn fat in targeted areas of the body. CoolSculpting® uses a precisely controlled cooling technology to target, cool and eliminate fat cells through a gradual and natural process without causing damage to the surrounding tissue and skin. Results are noticeable and natural-looking fat reduction in the treated areas.
CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive procedure. There are no needles, no surgical incisions, no anesthesia, no pain medications, and no recovery time. During the procedure, a non-invasive applicator is applied to the surface of the skin to deliver precisely controlled cooling which targets and eliminates fat cells in specific areas of the body. The procedure has FDA clearance for the non-surgical reduction of fat in the abdomen (belly fat) area and the flank (love handle) area.
As the fat cells are exposed to cooling, a process of natural cell removal occurs. The fat cells in the treated area are gradually eliminated through the body’s normal metabolic processes, similar to how fat from food is eliminated. The result is a reduction in fat bulges that is visible in most patients in about two to four months.*
What Kind of Results Can I Expect with CoolSculpting®?
In a clinical study CoolSculpting® has been shown to reduce fat in the treated area of test subject patients after a period of 4 months. The follow-up ultrasound images indicate an average fat layer reduction in the treated areas of 22.4%. (See study.) After the initial treatment is complete, further reductions can be obtained with additional treatment if desired. Individual reductions may be more or less, depending on the case.
What Happens During the Procedure?
The patient and doctor first select the area(s) to be treated. The device is positioned on the body, which then draws the bulge up between two cooling panels. As the panels go to work in the first few minutes, the patient initially feels a sensation of intense cold which soon dissipates. The patient is either seated comfortably or lying down during the duration of the procedure. Many people spend this time reading, working on their laptop, listening to music, or even taking a nap.
When Can I Return to Normal Activities?
Since CoolSculpting® is completely non-invasive, patients can resume their routine activities, including returning to work and exercise regimens, immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, or numbness in the treated area, but this is temporary.
When Will I See Results?
Patients typically start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after their treatment, and experience the most dramatic results after two months. The body continues to flush fat cells for up to four months after the treatment.* During the CoolSculpting® procedure, the treated fat cells are eliminated. As long as the patient maintains his or her weight with diet and exercise, long-term results should remain stable.
Am I Good Candidate for CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is ideal for men or women who are within 10 to 15 pounds of their ideal body weight and have a healthy diet and lifestyle. It is ideal for those people who have a noticeable bulge or bump that has not responded to healthy diet and exercise, but do not need or want to undergo liposuction surgery.
How Much Does CoolSculpting® Cost?
The cost for CoolSculpting® depends on the size of the treatment area and the number of treatments. A large area costs $1500. Small and medium areas cost $750 per area. For example the lower abdomen on most people is one large treatment. The love handles are two small/medium areas and thus cost $1500. When multiple areas are treated there is a progressive discount that is applied.
