Non-Invasive Liposuction in Irvine
Plastic Surgery Body Contouring Center in Irvine is pleased to offer non-invasive liposuction alternative, known as fat freezing. Fat freezing enables permanent fat reduction on the abdomen, thighs and hips of Irvine patients. This non-invasive liposuction alternative uses controlled cooling of fat bulges, such as love handles, to crystallize the fat for permanent elimination from the body.
Lipolysis is the scientific name for this fat breakdown. Lipolysis is directed by the immune and lymphatic systems for natural fat transformation to lipids which are passed from the body. This process is the same as the one used for fat ingested from food.
Once the fat is frozen as part of non-invasive liposuction alternative and crystallizes, the body knows it must get rid of the dead cells and effectively accomplishes that objective. When the cycle of freezing and elimination are over, previously non-responsive fatty areas are permanently gone.
Non-invasive liposuction alternative fat freezing is known by its brand name of CoolSculpting ®. CoolSculpting ® is FDA cleared. This method of fat reduction offers little to no side effects. Fat freezing using CoolSculpting ® technology is safe and is entirely pain-free. CoolSculpting ® sessions in Irvine only take one hour and provide wonderful results without surgery.
Irvine Controlled Cooling
Controlled cooling freezes undesirable fat. This is done without harm of surrounding tissues. Skin and muscle remain completely safe and protected. Only fat reacts to the regulated freezing, as fat freezes at warmer temperature than skin and muscle.
Targeted fat crystallizes when frozen. It then undergoes the body’s natural processes toward elimination. Fat freezing is a non-invasive liposuction alternative, as it delivers fat reduction only liposuction could in the past, but without surgery, scarring, major risk, recovery or downtime.
Zeltiq of Pleasanton, California developed its fat freezing technology specifically for use as a non-invasive liposuction alternative. Zeltiq’s CoolSculpting ® device was created for convenient, efficient, painless and effective fat reduction. FDA cleared CoolSculpting ® has reduced fat for well over a million patients worldwide since its invention. Despite use on so many people as a non-invasive liposuction alternative, including within Irvine, there have been no incidents of major side effects or complications.
How Does Irvine CoolSculpting ® Deliver Fat Reduction?
CoolSculpting ® in Irvine is provided by Plastic Surgery Body Contouring Center. This reduction of stubborn fat which has proven unresponsive to diet and exercise is convenient and only takes about an hour for each treatment session. Dr. Siamak Agha provides CoolSculpting ® non-invasive liposuction alternative to Irvine patients he knows will benefit from the treatment.
As fat freezing targets fat on the hips, thighs and abdomen, this non-invasive liposuction alternative is suited for patients needing fat reduction in those specific areas. Liposuction, the invasive form of fat reduction, is the option for Irvine patients with larger regions for fat reduction or for those CoolSculpting ® cannot help. Dr. Agha uses his expertise as a board certified plastic surgeon to determine whether CoolSculpting ® is the right choice for his Irvine patients as a non-invasive liposuction alternative. In many instances, liposuction will still be the better choice.
CoolSculpting ® utilizes application paddles with over 3000 sensors per side to deliver controlled cooling. There is a hose attached to each of these paddles. Through each hose, controlled cooling is delivered to targeted fat.
A CoolSculpting ® session takes one hour for completion. When patients arrive at Plastic Surgery Body Contouring Center for Irvine non-invasive liposuction alternative treatment, they are directed into a comfortable position and CoolSculpting ® devices are applied. Once controlled cooling begins, patients can occupy themselves through reading, use of their electronic devices or even a nap.
At completion of the session, paddles come off and the targeted area is massaged to return normal blood flow. The patient can then go back to work, running errands, caring for family or other pursuits in Irvine. This is a clear benefit of this non-invasive liposuction alternative. Frozen fat crystallizes within the body due to CoolSculpting ®. Within six to twelve weeks after treatment, the immune system has deployed enzymes to reduce the crystallized fat to lipids the lymphatic system can route for elimination as waste. This waste is passed from the body, just as eaten fats from food are eliminated. The Irvine CoolSculpting ®, non-invasive liposuction alternative patient then will see their improved physique.
