How Is CoolSculpting An Effective Treatment For Fat Cells?

CoolSculpting is a treatment for fat transfer. Fat transfer methods are usually used in plastic surgery with the intent of removing excess fat. The process can be non-invasive, such as liposuction, invasive with laser treatment, radio frequency, infrared or cryoablation, sometimes in conjunction with injectable fillers, or invasive with ultrasound, lasers or freezing. CoolSculpting is the non-invasive version of liposuction and is gaining popularity. The name “cool sculpting” was coined by Dr. Steven Teitelbaum, to describe the treatment.

Symptoms of CoolSculpting include swelling and redness at the treatment site. There may also be pain at the treatment site from the injection of the fat transfer agent. A few patients experience difficulty breathing, nausea and vomiting. The most common side effect from coolsculpting is temporary bruising or swelling at the injection site.

The reason coolsculpting has a low side effect rate is due to the fact that it dissolves the adipose tissue (fat cells) and allows the smooth muscle underneath to push the fat cells out of the body. This results in a body that is sculpted, not deformed. CoolSculpting is different from surgery in that it does not change the underlying anatomy of the body. It only regulates the distribution of fat cells within body parts.

The most common side effects from coolsculpting include swelling and redness at the treatment site. There is also occasionally a mild burning sensation. These side effects are considered normal and transient and will go away with time. In rare instances, serious complications such as infection may result. In these cases, doctors will usually perform additional testing to rule out any serious underlying problems.

Many patients find that coolsculpting is an effective treatment for their excess body fat. Unlike traditional liposuction, which is invasive and painful, coolsculpting is non-invasive and does not require surgery. This means that it is an excellent alternative for those who have had a prior procedure that was unsuccessful in removing unwanted fat.

For best results, coolsculpting should be used in conjunction with a traditional liposuction procedure. In this case, a large incision will be made in the abdomen and a large quantity of fat cells treatment will be performed. If you want to try coolsculpting to target only certain areas of your body, local anesthesia may be administered. This method allows the doctor more control over the treatment. While it can be quite effective at removing fat cells, coolsculpting is not without side effects or risks so you should discuss the procedure with your doctor thoroughly before beginning.
