In some cases, even diet and exercise may not be effective at reducing unwanted fat from various areas of the body. There are certain areas where fat tends to become localized and is difficult to remove. For example, the abdomen, thighs, back and hips tend to accumulate fat reserves that are non-responsive to regular exercise. We offer a variety of fat reduction techniques to help you target specific cells and remove fat deposits from the body. These methods include both non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures that target fat reserves and fatty cells.
While liposuction can be considered as a type of body contouring, there are many other fat reduction procedures that work in specific ways to eliminate stubborn fat deposits. Most of these methods are non-surgical and target fatty cells with varying degrees of intensity.
CoolSculpting® is ideal for those who have lost weight and are close to achieving their intended body shape. Such patients may simply need fat deposits to be removed from a few areas of the body so they can achieve the shape they have always wanted.
During CoolSculpting®, the undesired fat cells are cooled to temperatures in which they cannot survive. These cells are then flushed out of the body over the next few months after treatment. The method is precise and involves a minimal recovery period.
Selecting a Fat Reduction Procedure
There are many different treatment options for reducing unwanted fat in the body. The biggest factors to consider are recovery time, how quickly you wish to see results and your individual health status. Surgical procedures such as liposuction involve long recovery times.
On the other hand, minimally invasive procedures may take longer to witness results but involve faster recovery times. In addition, your individual expectations, history and health condition will play a factor in determining the best procedure for you.
