CoolSculpting® is offered at Jandali Plastic Surgery as a tummy tuck alternative that is completely non-surgical and non-invasive. The procedure is performed in the comfort of our office and there are no needles, liposuction, incisions, or anesthesia. CoolSculpting is FDA approved and freezes fat away permanently. Prolonged cooling of fat cells causes them to die and then they are removed naturally from the body within 2-3 months after the treatment.
CoolSculpting is a perfect treatment for men or women who desire an improved abdominal contour with no surgery or downtime. Patients can go back to work right after treatment. There may be minor discomfort but it is completely fine to return to exercise, yoga, or pilates after treatment. Each total treatment of the abdomen takes anywhere between 1 and 4 hours. CoolSculpting IS NOT a treatment that needs to be performed once a week for months in a row - it is usually a one time treatment, although some patients desire another treatment after the final result at the 3 month mark.
CoolSculpting is a very safe procedure due to the fact that it is non-surgical. Patients who are poor candidates for surgery can still get CoolSculpting performed. The side effects are minor and include mild bruising, temporary swelling, and temporary numbness of the skin. In addition, CoolSculpting does not tighten the skin, so patients who have a lot of excess abdominal skin are better candidates for removal of the skin with an abdominoplasty.
