Could this fat freezing technology give you the bikini body you want?

While working out and eating right should produce the results you’re looking for, fat is a little trickier and more complicated than that. Fat is pretty stubborn and while you will certainly see results from leading a healthier lifestyle, you may still find fat in areas such as the stomach, sides and thighs that don’t seem to be disappearing as quickly. While some people tend to turn to plastic surgery for results, our Atlanta, GA, gynecologist, Dr. Lillian Schapiro, offers a non-invasive, non-surgical way to destroy these pockets of unwanted fat.

What is Coolsculpting?

In essence, Coolsculpting works by freezing and destroying fat cells in certain areas of the body. During your session, a handheld device is placed over your area of concern. While attached, the device delivers cooling technology to cause damage the fat cells which are then cleared by your own lymph system. One session usually takes about 30 minutes.

What problems can Coolsculpting treat?

Just about any area of the body that has some unwanted fat can benefit from Coolsculpting. This includes:

  • Upper arms and the bra line
  • Double chin
  • Back
  • Stomach
  • Sides or “love handles”
  • Thighs
  • Buttock

Try the “pinch” test: If you can pinch an inch layer, then more than likely, we can treat it with Coolsculpting.

When will I see results from Coolsculpting?

It will take time for the fat cells to break down and be reabsorbed by the body’s lymphatic system. You should start to see results about four weeks after treatment with the most visible results occurring within three months. The body will continue to reabsorb these fat cells for up to six months after Coolsculpting treatment. The good news is that once these fat cells are destroyed, they can’t return.

At Ideal Gynecology in Atlanta, GA, Dr. Lillian Schapiro utilizes CoolSculpting as a safe and effective way to reduce your stubborn excess fat that doesn't disappear with a healthy lifestyle change. Her Cool & Fit program helps men and women of all ages target stubborn areas, such as the arms, thighs, stomach, flanks, and chin. This one-of-a-kind technology is a permanent solution to destroying fat cells. If you'd like to learn more about the details of CoolSculpting, read on, and schedule a consultation in our Atlanta, GA, office to determine if you are a candidate.

What Exactly Is CoolSculpting?

This fat-freezing method provides scientifically proven results to help men and women reduce fat in stubborn pockets in specific parts of the body. It's a non-invasive alternative to liposuction that delivers results in one to three months and is ideal for patients who can't get rid of problem areas with diet and exercise.

Benefits of CoolSculpting

Our Atlanta, GA, patients choose CoolSculpting because its fat-freezing technology offers a long track record of success and safety. It's also the only FDA-approved non-surgical fat reduction treatment that helps patients succeed in their body goals. If you're ready to take the next step, other advantages include:

  • Clinically proven fat loss
  • Fat reductions up to 40%
  • Clears fat cells naturally
  • Zero downtime, quick recovery
  • Noticeable results in 8-12 weeks

What to Expect from the Procedure

When you visit Ideal Gynecology for this procedure, you'll be able to sit back and relax in your private treatment room. During a CoolSculpting session, the device rests on your skin and applies a gentle suction motion. Scientifically named cryolipolysis, it freezes fat cells at a specific temperature so they cannot return. Because they don't like the cold, they rupture, and your lymphatic system helps eliminate them from your body naturally. It takes about one hour to target and treat each body part, although larger areas may require more than one session.
