The ideal candidate is no more than 25 pounds overweight, has tried exercise and dieting but cannot lose that extra fat typically seen in love handles, tummy bulge or man boobs. CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling to reduce fat deposits. A non-surgical body contouring procedure, it's FDA approved for non-invasive fat layer reduction. The body's natural cleansing process removes the dead fat cells, resulting in safe, gradual fat reduction.
The plastic surgery and aesthetics practice in Marina del Rey, CA, is the number one medical location in North America offering CoolSculpting. Grant Stevens, MD, FACS, a board certified plastic surgeon, attributes the procedure's popularity to its effectiveness in targeting specific areas of fat.
"Our patients love CoolSculpting, an excellent option to traditional liposuction," says Dr. Stevens. "It's ideal for men and women who are at or near their target weight but continue to experience fat deposits on their flanks, abdomen and love handles. Because the procedure requires no incisions, anesthesia, pain medication or downtime, many of our patients choose CoolSculpting to achieve their cosmetic goals," he adds. Those who undergo CoolSculpting typically enjoy the toned, slimmer results three weeks to two months after a treatment.
"Patients like CoolSculpting because there is no discomfort during the procedure," says Dr. Stevens. "They can even read a book, text or relax and listen to music. Although this method does not offer the more extensive fat loss available from traditional liposuction, it is a great alternative for those with smaller areas of fat."
Marina Plastic Surgery offers both surgical and non-surgical body-contouring procedures. The surgeons and staff are known for customizing each treatment plan to address the individual patient's concerns and desired outcome. Dr. Stevens says the busy lifestyles in the southern California area make nonsurgical options such as CoolSculpting particularly popular.
