A non-surgical alternative to liposuction, CoolSculpting® is a unique fat reduction technique now offered by Dr. Semira Bayati. This innovative treatment can allow patients to improve areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Using the FDA-approved CoolSculpting® device, excess fat in specific body areas will be targeted for removal using Cryolipolysis™, a technique that involves controlled cooling methods to ultimately break down the excess fat cells. As the fat cells are shrunken and destroyed, they are then gradually filtered out of the body through natural processes. This gradual progression of fat reduction can result in a new, slimmer figure after a few short months.
With CoolSculpting®, there are no surgical incisions required. Tissue surrounding the immediate treatment area should remain unharmed during the CoolSculpting® procedure. Dr. Bayati’s patients are typically able to relax during treatment – many patients choose to read a book or take a nap during this time. The CoolSculpting® procedure has been described as a cold, tingly feeling, but the sensation disappears shortly after treatment has been completed. No recovery time is needed for most patients, so they are usually able to return to their daily activities immediately following the CoolSculpting® procedure. The entire treatment usually takes about one to two hours to complete, depending on the size and number of the areas being treated. Final results are typically achieved after two to four months.
