Non-Invasive Liposuction in Newport Beach
An innovative alternative to liposuction, which does not involve surgery is available in Newport Beach through Plastic Surgery Body Contouring Center. This method of fat reduction for hips, thighs and the abdomen uses controlled cooling of stubborn fat tissue to cause the fat to break down within the body.
That process of fat breakdown in the body, called lipolysis, involves normal actions by the immune and lymphatic systems. Together, these systems enable natural elimination of destroyed fat from the body. When this cycle is complete, bulky areas of stubborn fat are forever reduced and the result is a trimmer, more sculpted appearance. Non-invasive liposuction alternative treatment through fat freezing, also known as CoolSculpting ®, is pain-free, efficient and delivers great results.
About Controlled Cooling
Controlled cooling is essentially freezing of fat without destruction of surrounding tissues, such as skin and muscle. Fat freezes more easily than those other tissues, so controlled temperature which does not harm desirable areas kills fat effectively. Once the fat is killed, it goes through the breakdown and elimination process. Fat freezing is known as a non-invasive liposuction alternative, as it delivers targeted area results for which only liposuction could, in the past.
This fat freezing is delivered through cutting-edge technology by Zeltiq of California. Zeltiq developed its CoolSculpting ® device specifically for targeted fat reduction and as a non-invasive liposuction alternative. Approved by the FDA, CoolSculpting ® has proven to be that effective, non-invasive means of stubborn fat reduction as an alternative to liposuction.
How Does CoolSculpting ® Work?
CoolSculpting ® non-invasive liposuction alternative is often used in Newport Beach by Plastic Surgery Body Contouring Center to help patients permanently remove stubborn fat which has proven unresponsive to diet and exercise. Dr. Siamak Agha provides CoolSculpting ® to patients he has determined as suited for the treatment process. Because fat freezing works on the love handles, flanks and thighs, it is best suited to patients who have targeted fat reduction needs, who can benefit from non-invasive liposuction alternative. Liposuction, the more invasive form of fat reduction, is provided to Newport Beach patients for larger regions of fat reduction, or for those CoolSculpting ® will likely not provide maximum benefit.
CoolSculpting ® employs application paddles which are placed onto the patient’s body, where that patient is seeking fat reduction. Each paddle has a hose attached, through which freezing temperature is delivered to the fat. Protective gel pads are used to heighten protection of skin and other tissue from this delivery of controlled cooling.
A CoolSculpting ® session takes about one hour from beginning to end. When patients arrive at Plastic Surgery Body Contouring Center for treatment in Newport Beach, they are situated in a comfortable position and the fat freezing paddles are placed as needed. When cooling is activated by Dr. Agha, the patient can sit back, relax, read, watch TV or use apps on their smartphone or device. Some patients even nap during CoolSculpting ®. At the end of the session, the paddles are removed and each treated area is massaged to normalize blood circulation. The patient is then able to go back to their regular routine around Newport Beach, whether that is for work, running errands, taking care of family or other pursuits. This is perhaps the greatest benefit of using fat freezing as a non-invasive liposuction alternative.
During CoolSculpting ®, targeted fat is frozen and crystallizes. About six to twelve weeks following treatment, fat has undergone immune system attack and the lymphatic system has routed lipids through the body, much as fat from foods are treated after consumption. The body then eliminates these fats as waste. When the cycle is done, the patient notices their newly trimmer, more sculpted physique without prevalence of stubborn fat on the treated area.
