Improve Body Contours with CoolSculpting Treatment
Proper nutrition and a healthy lifestyle are essential to a person’s physical health and well-being. Unfortunately, even individuals who practice these healthy habits may find themselves with problem areas on the body that seem stubbornly resistant to diet and exercise. These pockets of fat can prevent patients from achieving the slim, toned physique they desire. Dr. Amir Moradi offers a solution to these patients in the form of CoolSculpting® treatment.
Dr. Moradi was one of the first doctors in Southern California to offer CoolSculpting® treatment and has been using this technique since 2010 to help patients achieve their aesthetic goals. CoolSculpting® at our San Diego office can freeze away unwanted fat in order to help patients achieve the body contouring results they desire. Individuals who are interested in learning more about this treatment are invited and encouraged to contact Moradi MD for their complimentary consultation.
CoolSculpting® is safe for nearly all patients and can benefit almost anyone looking to reduce unwanted fat deposits. However, in order to achieve best results, candidates should meet certain criteria. First and foremost, it should be understood that CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss solution. While CoolSculpting® can successfully target and eliminate limited areas of fat, it is not likely to be successful for patients who are more than 30 pounds over their ideal weight range. Instead, CoolSculpting® should be seen as a way to enhance body contours and address common problem areas, including the following:
Candidates who understand the limitations and benefits of the treatment tend to have more realistic expectations, be better prepared for the treatment outcome, and approach treatment in a more positive frame of mind. Any individuals who are considering undergoing CoolSculpting® treatment at the San Diego office of Dr. Moradi should take this into consideration.
CoolSculpting® treatment is a non-invasive alternative to liposuction treatment. This treatment can be performed without the use of anesthesia or needles. Patients are free to lie back and relax, or even read, while the treatment is performed. While each procedure will vary based on the patient’s specific needs, a typical treatment is complete within one to two hours.
During treatment, Dr. Moradi uses a proprietary technology called Cryolipolysis™ to literally freeze away unwanted fat cells. This is a very precise and controlled procedure that enables Dr. Moradi to freeze and destroy fat cells without damaging surrounding tissues. Dr. Moradi will apply the CoolSculpt® applicator to the treatment site so that the controlled cooling can be delivered to the unwanted layer or deposit of fat. Typically, each treatment will involve two treatment sites (one on the left side of the treatment area and another on the right side) for uniform results.
CoolSculpting® is generally described as a tolerable procedure. Patients may experience some minor discomfort during the beginning of treatment while the tissue first begins to cool and some late-onset discomfort after treatment.
One of the many benefits of CoolSculpting® treatment is that it really does not require any downtime for recovery. Because the procedure is completely non-invasive, most patients are able to immediately return to their regular activities. In fact, many patients go back to work as soon as treatment is complete.
The results of CoolSculpting® are gradual, which is often preferable because it is not immediately obvious that the patient has undergone cosmetic treatment. In this way, patients can obtain the results they’re seeking without having to feel overly self-conscious or conspicuous post-treatment. During treatment, unwanted fat cells are frozen and destroyed. In the weeks and months following treatment, the body will naturally and gradually get rid of these treated fat cells. Over time, as these fat cells are eliminated, patients will begin to see their figure change. Within two to four months, most patients find that their figure is more toned and slender, and they have achieved the body contouring results they desired.
Once fat cells have been eliminated, they are gone for good. As long as patients continue to maintain a healthy lifestyle, they should continue to benefit from the results of CoolSculpting® treatment. Every patient who undergoes CoolSculpting® treatment with Dr. Moradi will also receive a complimentary Z wave treatment, which combats cellulite to further enhance results.
