Improving fat reduction and body contouring with a non-invasive treatment called Coolsculpting

Most men and women have specific areas of the body that they are having difficulty addressing with traditional methods such as diet and exercise. Excess fat may remain in the midsection no matter how many crunches you do! However, thanks to advances in the medical and aesthetic industry, patients have more options than ever to choose from. Instead of requiring a visit to the plastic surgeon for liposuction or tummy tucks, patients can now choose non-invasive treatments that provide similar results. This includes fat reduction and body contouring solutions with Coolsculpting.

 

What is Coolsculpting?

The best candidates for this procedure are patients within their ideal weight range who want to improve the contours of specific areas of the body when diet and exercise fail to work. Patients who are obese or largely overweight are often not proper candidates for Coolsculpting.
