Non-Invasive Liposuction in Orange County
An innovative non-invasive liposuction alternative is available at Plastic Surgery Body Contouring Center in Orange County. This means of permanent fat reduction for flanks, thighs and tummy uses regulated cooling of stubborn fat tissue to crystallize fat and then cause it to break down for elimination from the body.
That process of fat breakdown is called lipolysis. Lipolysis uses the immune system and lymphatic system to naturally reduce fat to lipids which can be passed as waste. This works similarly to fat which is consumed as part of diet. Once fat is frozen and crystallizes, the body only knows it must dispel the dead cells and does what it needs to, in order to effectively accomplish that goal.
When this elimination cycle is over, stubbornly fatty areas once unaffected by diet and exercise are permanently and noticeably reduced. Non-invasive liposuction alternative fat freezing is also known as CoolSculpting ®. CoolSculpting ® is FDA cleared, offers little to no side effects, has been proven safe and is pain-free. CoolSculpting ® sessions are efficient and deliver wonderful results, all without surgery.
About Controlled Cooling
Controlled cooling is the freezing of targeted fat through use of regulated temperatures. This is completed without destruction of surrounding tissues. Skin, muscle and other parts of the body remain safe and unaffected. Only fat is affected, as fat freezes at a higher temperature than other tissues.
Once the targeted fat has been frozen and crystallizes, it goes through the body’s natural elimination process. Fat freezing is a non-invasive liposuction alternative, as it effectively delivers fat reduction as only liposuction could, in the past.
