Sometimes stubborn fat just won’t leave. We diet, we spend more time at the gym and those extra pounds stick around. Frustrating, right?! Well, today, we’ve announced a new technology that will be introduced into our Albany, NY plastic surgery practice called CoolSculpting™ and it can help solve that problem!
CoolSculpting: Non-Invasive Fat Removal
CoolSculpting is approved by the USFDA and is a non-invasive procedure to help patients eliminate weight by freezing away fat! Here’s how it works. Fat cells are responsive to cold, which leads them to be painlessly destroyed through the treatment. With CoolSculpting, unwanted fat cells shrink and eventually vanish over time. The scientific process is called apoptosis.
“Even those that exercise regularly and eat healthy still find that they have unwanted fat,” says Dr. Rockmore. “In the past, the only surgical option to removing fat was liposuction, but that’s not the case anymore. Patients now have CoolSculpting as an alternative, where needles, surgery, and long recovery times aren’t necessary.”
Following the treatment, patients can expect to see results within a few weeks, with the most prominent results coming after two to four months. With CoolSculpting, fat cells are targeted and affected within a one to two hour session.
Available Now at Our Albany Practice
The Plastic Surgery Group is one of the first Capital District practices to introduce CoolSculpting and is now accepting consultations and appointments for the procedure.
