Sometimes, no matter how strict your diet is or how frequently (and exhaustingly) you work out, you cannot achieve the slim figure of your dreams. Some stubborn fat deposits in areas of your body like hips, lower belly, or love hands are difficult to target, so patients with this problem might have no choice but to consider a surgical intervention like liposuction to get the desired results.
If this is your case, you might want to evaluate your alternatives before deciding. Although this surgical procedure will undoubtedly achieve the transformation you want, we advise you to consider the ultimate combination of liposuction and CoolSculpting®. If you are thinking about getting liposuction, find out how you can benefit from this fantastic combination!
WHAT IS COOLSCULPTING?
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure commonly used for body contouring treatments. It eliminates the fat tissue typically accumulated in certain areas of your body by freezing and destroying fat cells.
Although this procedure achieves fantastic results on its own, it can fall short of your expectations if you are looking for a dramatic change in your body. Patients who want to get rid of a considerable amount of fat tissue might need to undergo a surgical intervention like liposuction before thinking of other non-invasive treatments like CoolSculpting.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF COMBINING THESE TWO TREATMENTS?
By combining liposuction and CoolSculpting, you can enjoy the benefits of two amazing and effective cosmetic treatments. Dr. Farber can remove fat tissue through the surgical intervention and then reshape and recontour some specific areas with CoolSculpting to enhance the final result.
Although we understand that undergoing a surgical procedure like liposuction can be a big decision on its own, we recommend our patients consider this combined treatment for outstanding results. CoolSculpting is an effective non-invasive procedure with no downtime and minimal side effects!
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT DURING THIS PROCEDURE?
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved cosmetic treatment that doesn’t involve needles or scalpels. This system uses special applicators to apply an intense cold to the skin where fat cells are accumulated. This low temperature destroys these fat cells, which are later absorbed by the body.
When Dr. Farber places the applicators onto your skin, you’ll feel a suction sensation as they adhere. As the device starts working, you may experience mild discomfort from the initial cooling blast – as if an ice pack was placed directly onto the skin. This discomfort eventually fades away as the area gets numbed.
The best part of this treatment is that you don’t have to do a thing – just relax as the machine does the work. The treatment lasts 1 to 3 hours, depending on how many body areas are being treated, and after the cooling cycle is complete, we will ask you to stay in the office for a few more minutes. During this time, we’ll remove the device, make sure you feel okay, and perform a brief massage on the treated areas to enhance the results of your treatment. After this, you can go back to your routine almost immediately – no downtime or post-op instructions!
