Benefits of CoolSculpting
By effortlessly eliminating stubborn pockets of fat, undergoing some of the best Coolscultping Houston TX has to offer is an incredible way to achieve a slimmer body.
Plus, the procedure comes with a number of appealing benefits, including:
- A completely safe, FDA-approved treatment
- No downtime
- No needles, anesthesia or recovery period
- Permanently smooth and contoured results
CoolSculpting is an innovative, non-surgical body contouring treatment. If a healthy diet and exercise plan isn’t giving you the sculpted body you want, this procedure can eliminate unwanted fat while creating the trim and toned physique you deserve.
CoolSculpting can be a terrific fat reduction procedure for many of our Houston patients, simply because it’s so non-invasive. With that said, it’s generally intended for individuals who are close to their ideal weight, but possess noticeable and unwanted bulges of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. It’s not an ideal procedure for men and women who are substantially overweight, as they will likely benefit from a more aggressive weight loss surgery – rather than a body contouring treatment like CoolSculpting.
CoolSculpting in Houston TX
Your CoolSculpting procedure will be performed in the comfort of Dr. Sukkar’s Houston office. While you’re sitting or lying down in a comfortable position, we’ll position the CoolSculpting system over your body. The device will then freeze and destroy unwanted fat cells by drawing bulges of excess volume to its two cooling panels. You can expect the entire one-hour procedure to have minimal discomfort, and you can use this time to read, answer emails or simply relax.
In terms of results, they will appear gradually. Within about three weeks, you’ll see a visible improvement in the amount of excess volume present, with the full results emerging in approximately three months. At that point, your body will have naturally eliminated all of the destroyed fat cells, and your contoured new physique will be apparent. As long as you continue to lead a healthy lifestyle and don’t gain a substantial amount of weight in the future, you can expect your toned body to be permanent.
There is virtually no recovery period associated with CoolSculpting, as it’s a safe, gentle and completely non-invasive treatment. As such, you’ll be free to return to work and your normal daily routine immediately after your appointment.
With that said, some of our patients do experience minor side effects after their treatment, such as redness, bruising and discomfort. However, all of these effects will be mild and should disappear very quickly.
CoolSculptingFrequently Asked Questions
Does CoolSculpting Hurt?
People have different tolerances for pain. What bothers some may not bother others. The majority of our patients have felt the CoolSculpting procedure is relatively painless. You will feel a bit of pressure and an intense cold sensation when the applicator is initially placed on your skin. This soon dissipates. The remaining time spent during your procedure is very relaxing.
What Happens to the Fat Cells?
During a CoolSculpting procedure, heat is extracted from the fat cell, and it begins to die. Once the fat cells die, the fat layer targeted is significantly reduced as the dead fat cells are shed through the body's normal metabolic process.
Will I Need to Have More Than One Session?
Dr. Sukkar will work with you to determine an individual treatment plan that is tailored to your specific goals. Depending on your needs, and the area being treated, most patients will require at least two sessions to obtain their desired results. Treatments can be repeated every four to six weeks.
Is CoolSculpting a Weight Loss Procedure?
It is recommended that patients be as close to their ideal weight as possible when considering CoolSculpting. The procedure is designed to trim inches from the treated areas by reducing fat cells. Fat isn't necessarily heavy, but because it can take up quite a bit of space, patients often feel better about how their clothes fit after a treatment.
What Happens if I Gain Weight After My CoolSculpting Procedure?
It is best for patients to be active and at a consistent weight when they elect to have a CoolSculpting procedure. But we understand things can change and that includes our weight. If you do gain weight, fat cells that were not treated by CoolSculpting can get bigger, but weight gain will happen evenly throughout your body.
How Is CoolSculpting Different From Liposuction?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure. There is no surgery or recovery time needed. Unlike liposuction, the fat cells below the skin's surface are damaged and then shed by the body without penetrating the skin.
Is CoolSculpting Safe?
CoolSculpting is safe and effective way to minimize excess fat. The FDA has approved the use of CoolSculpting for many parts of the body.
Do I need to do Anything to Prepare for My CoolSculpting Procedure?
No vitamins or supplements are necessary. You do not have to start a special diet or change any routines you may have. Many patients feel that CoolSculpting gives them a fresh start and are more motivated to keep up with a healthy diet and exercise routine.
How Much Does the CoolSculpting Procedure Cost?
The price for CoolSculpting procedures can vary by patient. Once you've created your individual treatment plan, Dr. Sukkar can go over the areas of concern and the number of sessions needed to help you determine what you'll need to budget to meet your overall goal.
