Am I An Ideal Candidate For CoolSculpting® In Atlanta?
CoolSculpting® may not be right for everyone. It is important to note that CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss procedure. CoolSculpting® treatments are performed in localized areas. Therefore, CoolSculpting® is most suitable for helping to minimize the effects of dimples, bulges, or cellulite that are not corrected by a healthy diet and exercise. The areas of the body best suited for treatment are those where the skin is easily pinched between the fingers, including the hips, abdomen, back, and thighs.
To determine if CoolSculpting® is right for you, our team will first provide a consultation and physical assessment. The number of required CoolSculpting® sessions will vary by patient. The number of sessions is determined by the patient’s personal goals and desired results. A CoolSculpting® patient who is only a few pounds over their ideal weight goal and has few areas of concern may only need one or two treatments. Those patients with greater body mass often require a higher number of treatments to see results. However, CoolSculpting® is not designed for the removal of large fat deposits associated with obesity. It is also not designed for the correction of problems associated with loose or sagging skin.
What Can I Expect During CoolSculpting® In Atlanta?
At Astra Plastic surgery, we perform CoolSculpting® in-office. Each session is geared toward targeting a specific area of the body and lasts about an hour.
The number of CoolSculpting® sessions required to achieve a patient’s desired results depends on a variety of factors. Some of these factors include the number of treatment areas, the size of treatment areas, and the amount of fat present in the areas. Side effects of a CoolSculpting® treatment may include slight bruising of the treatment site for up to twenty-four hours post-treatment.
What Can I Expect After CoolSculpting® In Atlanta?
There is little-to-no recovery or downtime associated with the CoolSculpting® treatment. Any effects the patient experiences following the procedure are usually minimal, lasting only one to two days. Common side effects of cryolipolysis include redness or slight bruising of the treatment area. Numbness or tingling sensations in the area may also occur.
There are no physical limitations following treatment. Patients may resume all normal daily functions immediately post-treatment. Some patients receive treatments during their lunch break and return to work afterward with no unpleasant after-effects. Many of our CoolSculpting® patients can see a change after a single treatment, but in most cases, a second treatment is needed to reach the desired result. It is important to remember that visible results come gradually as the body’s natural processes are responsible for removing the fat cells. CoolSculpting® has been found to be effective in correcting areas of stubborn fat in the abdomen and waist.
