Weight loss is a difficult endeavor. Unless you’re one of the lucky ones genetically predisposed to looking thin no matter what you eat or possess the fortunate ability some have to body morph from one extreme to another, then losing weight is tough.
Nearly everyone out there, with the exception of that lucky minority we mentioned above, would like to be able to lose weight easily, even if that weight loss is just a few pounds. Eating right and exercise isn’t always enough to kick off those last few pounds, and invasive surgeries really aren’t for everyone. This is where a CoolSculpting doctor from the Miami Center for Dermatology comes into play.
Dr. Deborah Longwill DO, FAOCD runs the Fat Freeze Clinic, a part of the Miami Center for Dermatology, proving body sculpture treatment in the South Florida area. Dr. Longwill’s team is dedicated to helping men and women feel great about the way they look, and about their bodies.
Does CoolSculpting Work?
CoolSculpting is an effective and noninvasive treatment aiding in the reduction of stubborn fat. CoolSculpting is a specifically cultivated fat removal procedure for those looking to lose stubborn fat in target areas. Traditional weight loss surgeries like gastric and liposuction are generally for those that are considered obese, having a large amount of fat they’d like removed. CoolSculpting however, is more tailored to those that have small, stubborn bits of far in specifically targeted areas that they’re looking to remove.
When looking at Miami CoolSculpting before and after results it’s easy to see that the procedure work, but more importantly, HOW does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved body sculpture treatment and is a popular alternative to weight loss surgeries. The procedure lasts for about an hour and carries none of the negative after effects of traditional fat loss surgery. A CoolSculpting doctor will inspect the desired areas where you’re seeking to receive treatment and consult with you on whether or not CoolSculpting is right for you.
Once the decision has been made to proceed and you arrive for your first treatment, A CoolSculpting doctor will mark the specific areas being treated and apply a protective gel to the surface of your skin. The selected fat is then placed between cooling panels and fat cells are frozen, and removed through the use of a gentle vacuum. The procedure is relatively painless and after an initial few minutes of discomfort in the form of pressure and numbness, you will hardly notice that anything. You can read a magazine, play on your phone, do virtually anything you would normally do with some downtime.
The CoolSculpting procedure allows the body to remove fat cells in a natural way in a process known as cryolipolysis. The treatment freezes the adipose or fatty tissues and breaks down the targeted cells, leaving the surrounding tissue unaffected. The freezing temperatures cause the fat cells to crystallize and die off and then are removed by your body naturally as normal dead cell tissue would over the next few weeks.
After the treatment, there will likely be redness on the treated area and you may even see lumping underneath the skin but there is no cause for concern. This lumping is the fat that has been collected by the CoolSculpting applicator. The CoolSculpting doctor will massage the area and the lump should begin to dissipate.
The Miami CoolSculpting before and after results are not immediately apparent as the process of fat cell removal is done through a natural bodily function, but you should be able to see changes in as little as 3 weeks after your first treatment. The body continues to flush out these fat cells naturally for four to six months after each treatment and you can begin to view the most drastic improvements after about a two-month delay. Your fat cells will be less and less with each treatment and the important thing to remember is that all of this is done while you’re seated comfortably in a recliner! Dr. Longwill and the Miami Center for Dermatology firmly believe that CoolSculpting works and the end result show it’s pretty apparent that it does. The treatment is long lasting, and the fat cells will be gone FOREVER!
A CoolSculpting treatment is not a diet or exercise plan, and there is absolutely no need to change your lifestyle habits. The thing that we frequently see though, is the willingness of patients to change their lifestyles on their own. Fat can move around within the body, and though the cells treated with CoolSculpting are gone for good, fat from other areas can move into the treated locations. Diet and exercise are always important regardless if you’ve undergone a weight loss procedure or not. Not only for the way you look but for your own health as well.
Nutrition and exercise remain important, and without these habits, the chances of you regaining unseemly weight in unwanted areas increases exponentially. What would the point be in undergoing stomach CoolSculpting in Miami, and getting yourself looking good for the beach if you’re just going to go out and put the weight back on?
