Non-Surgical Liposuction

For many years, liposuction was the leading treatment offered by doctors to eliminate deposits of unwanted body fat. While effective at removing fatty tissue from the body, liposuction is an invasive procedure that carries with it a certain amount of risk and downtime afterwards. Today there are alternatives to liposuction, thanks to the introduction of non-invasive fat reduction technologies. CoolSculpting by Zeltiq has quickly become one of the leading forms of non-surgical liposuction available in the US market. Our Doctor is pleased to offer this safe and effective treatment to patients in Los Angeles at both his Beverly Hills and Santa Monica locations.

Fat deposits tend to build up and accumulate in certain areas of the body, such as the waist, thighs, back, and flanks. If you are troubled by stubborn fat deposits that cling to your body despite your best efforts to maintain a healthy lifestyle, then non-surgical liposuction may be the right solution for you. Like liposuction, CoolSculpting can eliminate specific areas of body fat. During a liposuction treatment, a thin tube is inserted beneath the skin and fat cells are sucked out of the body. There are many risks associated with liposuction, including infection, hemorrhaging, and lumpiness or uneven skin texture where the fat was removed. Because CoolSculpting is non-invasive and non-surgical, there is no risk of infection or bleeding associated with the fat freezing treatment. When you freeze the fat with CoolSculpting, you also will avoid the puckered or bumpy result that can occur with liposuction. Unlike traditional liposuction, CoolSculpting actually utilizes your body’s own natural processes to eliminate unwanted fat. Fat will be removed from the body gradually, providing a smooth, natural result.

The Cool Sculpting procedure takes one to three hours to perform, depending on the areas(s) being treated. Before beginning the procedure, our Doctor will review your medical history and examine the areas you wish to target for fat reduction. He will begin the treatment by positioning the device above the targeted area. Your skin will then be gently lifted between two cooling panels. As the device begins to cool down the skin and tissue, you may experience intense feelings of cold, numbness, or tingling, but these sensations will decrease as your body adjusts to the cooler temperature. During the treatment, you will be able to rest, read, listen to music, or use your computer. Once the treatment ends, you will be able to return home and resume normal activities immediately. The fat freeze process is initiated during the treatment, as the fat cells are destroyed by the cold temperatures. The results of your treatment will be gradually revealed over the coming months – most patients begin to see results after three weeks, with the most dramatic results being seen after four months. During this time, your body will be working to eliminate the dead fat cells, so your slimmer physique can be revealed.

Fat freezing has quickly become one of the most popular fat reduction treatments available today. It’s easy to see why – this treatment is safe, effective, and provides excellent results to the right patients.
