As the winter months bring cold air to North Carolina, many rejoice! Despite bathing suit season being a thing of the past, many of our clients are looking for a method to look and feel their best for upcoming holiday gatherings and social events. Whether you love the colder weather or you wish that it was still summer, Specialists in Plastic Surgery has an innovative method for everyone to embrace the cold this season: CoolSculpting®

Freeze the Fat Away

Have you ever been outside shivering and wondered if there is any good use for the cold? CoolSculpting has found the answer to that question with the miracle of Cryolipolysis®. Cryolipolysis is the process of freezing fat cells without causing any damage to the skin or surrounding tissue. It allows our plastic surgery team here in North Carolina to attack those pesky fat deposits without surgery, incisions, or downtime!

Sculpt All Around the Body

Coolsculpting is noninvasive, which means that no surgery is necessary. This helps many of our clients in Raleigh and Cary feel even more comfortable addressing stubborn areas of fat. Coolsculpting is incredibly versatile and helps many address their double chin, love handles, muffin top, extra tummy fat, or arm fat. Some of the most common problem areas for which CoolSculpting is a great option include the abdomen, legs, thighs, arms, chin, and hips! To do this, a customized treatment plan is formulated with Ivy, our CoolSculpting specialist, under the direction of our board-certified plastic surgeons.

The CoolSculpting Experience

Many of our Raleigh and Cary clients are intrigued by the concept of CoolSculpting but want to know what the procedure itself will look like. Since CoolSculpting is completely noninvasive, all that will be applied to your skin is a gel pad and the CoolSculpting applicator. This applicator will be responsible for freezing the fat away during the treatment. Depending on the targeted area, many people are able to multitask during their CoolSculpting procedure. Take this time to catch up on the latest news, play with a favorite phone app, or just relax and enjoy this break.

CoolSculpting may get a little cold (as you may have imagined), however usually the targeted area gets numb within 10 minutes of the treatment process. While the process itself is fairly comfortable, our clients sometimes feel mild pinching, tugging, and pulling from the applicator. Once your CoolSculpting procedure is done, you can return to work, errands, or play just as planned. Most patients experience very little to no downtime following their CoolSculpting treatment.

Personalize Your CoolSculpting Journey

CoolSculpting is no cookie-cutter approach to fat reduction. Our team at Specialists in Plastic Surgery consider each and every one of our CoolSculpting clients to be unique in their goals and treatment approach. When you meet for your initial consultation, Ivy will ask what area of the body you are interested in slimming down as well as what your desired result would look like. She may recommend multiple CoolSculpting treatments for optimal results, as each CoolSculpting session can reduce up to 25 percent of the current body fat in a targeted area.

If you are interested in embracing the cold this fall with CoolSculpting, please schedule your initial consultation with our office and start your CoolSculpting journey today.
