Plastic Surgeon in New Jersey Highlights Distinct Benefits of CoolSculpting®
Dr. Paul LoVerme details the unique intricacies of the non-surgical fat reduction treatment known as CoolSculpting®.
Verona, NJ — “CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure designed to eliminate pockets of excess fat buildup in the hips, abdomen, and lower back regions,” writes New Jersey plastic surgeon Paul LoVerme, MD to begin a recent blog post. The entry – titled, Benefits of CoolSculpting® – goes on to identify and briefly expand upon some distinct advantages the innovative treatment can provide patients interested in fat reduction, including:
- A noninvasive treatment
- A short treatment session
- Minimal, if any, discomfort
- Little to no downtime
According to another blog post – this one titled, How CoolSculpting® Works: A Procedural Overview – the CoolSculpting® procedure takes about hour to complete, per treatment area. In preparation for one’s treatment, the New Jersey plastic surgeon encourages patients to wear comfortable clothes and bring something – such as an iPad, book, or magazine – to occupy themselves during their session.
In contrast to burning, shattering, or extracting fat cells through surgical means, CoolSculpting® employs a targeted cooling process called cryolipolysis that literally freezes fat cells to the point of elimination without damaging surrounding healthy tissues. Once frozen, the fat cells die and exit the body through natural processes. In just one treatment session, Dr. LoVerme notes that about 20-25% of targeted fat cells can be eliminated.
“Ultimately,” Dr. LoVerme concludes the former of the two blog posts, “it is important to note that CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss solution for people who are overweight; however, it can be a very effective option for patients at or close to their ideal weight who are interested in addressing stubborn fat pockets around the midsection.”
