Fat Freezing in Newport Beach
Life in Newport Beach, as in any Southern California community, is driven largely by outward appearances and physical attributes. People do take a great deal of pride in their physical selves, in Newport Beach. As part of this culture, you may have worked hard at the gym and in dieting to maintain your physical appearance. However, many people have done those things without success in reduction of some of the most stubborn areas of fat on their bodies. You may struggle with the same problem, that of stubborn body fat.
For many decades, doctors have advised that body fat is combatted through healthy nutrition and workouts at the gym. To a point, this is true. Recently, though, scientists and many in the medical community have acknowledged that some body fat will not reduce through healthy diet and physical fitness. This fat is referred to as stubborn, as it is just that.
Fat freezing is a relatively innovative and leading-edge method of permanently removing body fat from targeted areas such as the thighs, abdomen and hips. The device used in fat freezing is known as CoolSculpting ®. CoolSculpting ® uses controlled cooling to destroy fat cells without harming surrounding tissue.
Is Fat Freezing Safe?
While it sounds dangerous, there is no recognized risk of harm through CoolSculpting ®. After more than half a decade since the Food and Drug Administration approved its use for fat reduction, no significant complications have been reported. Even in worldwide use with three times more people using CoolSculpting ® around the globe than liposuction in the United States each year, no significant problems have been experienced as a result of fat freezing.
Perhaps the most exciting aspect of fat freezing for Newport Beach patients is that the process of fat reduction involves no surgery, is entirely non-invasive and can be conducted in just one hour. With one hour long session providing visible results, fat freezing is performed without any patient downtime. Patients can immediately go back to their work, daily tasks and other aspects of their life. Other than some possible and minimal bruising or redness which may occur due to the process, there are no obvious or painful side effects of fat freezing.
How Is Fat Freezing Conducted?
In Newport Beach, fat freezing is provided by Plastic Surgery Body Contouring Center. The center’s Dr. Siamak Agha, a board certified plastic surgeon, first assesses your situation and provides a physical exam to determine if fat freezing will work well for your needs. If you are considered a good candidate for the process, your treatment can be started.
On the day of your fat freezing session in Newport Beach, you will be settled into position for the treatment with fat freezing applicator paddles placed on your body with protective gel pads. Each applicator has a hose attached, through which controlled temperatures are delivered. There are over 3000 sensors in each side of the paddles.
Areas of application may include your abdomen, hips or thighs. Each area is targeted individually by applicators. You may undergo more than one session to treat all of your areas. Each session you may have is still only one hour in length.
Once the plastic surgeon is sure you are comfortable and settled, he will begin treatment. During this time, you can relax, read, watch TV, send emails, play video games or even sleep. Fat freezing is conducted while you sit still and just let it happen, for an hour.
At the end of the hour, your treated areas will be lightly massaged so blood flow can normalize. You are then able to get up and go on with your day, as if you had just been on a lunch break or any other appointment. Most patients return to work, errands or family life in Newport Beach without skipping a beat.
