CoolSculpting ® – Non-Invasive Liposuction in Orange County
The FDA recently permitted use of an innovative treatment for fat reduction without invasive surgery. This device and its associated treatment activities, called CoolSculpting ®, employs regulated cooling for reduction of fat on targeted areas. The Food and Drug Administration has authorized CoolSculpting ® for reduction of fat on the abdomen, flanks and thighs.
Invented by two Harvard doctors, the idea of freezing fat through this device came from discovery that children who regularly eat frozen popsicles have dimples in their cheeks in adulthood. Researchers realized that the popsicles were freezing fat and the body was permanently eliminating it, creating dimples as a result.
CoolSculpting ® is developing worldwide support of the cosmetic surgery industry, plastic surgeons, media and successfully treated patients throughout the world. More than 425,000 people have successfully reduced their body fat through use of CoolSculpting ® in the past year. This annual statistic is rapidly growing and CoolSculpting ® is now being used for more patients than liposuction, which was formerly one of the few options available for permanent removal of fat cells.
Men and women utilizing CoolSculpting ® at Plastic Surgery Body Contouring Center for reduction of their stubborn fatty areas have seen great results in elimination of that fat. Because it is a non-surgical procedure, Orange County patients can undergo CoolSculpting ® treatment and get back to their daily routine without interruption beyond the hour or so required for treatment completion.
