What is CoolSculpting?
After years of success overseas, the FDA approved cryolipolysis for use in the United States in 2010. Since then, the process has been refined and streamlined even further, making CoolSculpting an even better option than it was before for those who want or need to eliminate stubborn fat deposits without injections, anesthesia, or surgery. CoolSculpting is a completely non-invasive, in-office procedure that quite literally freezes fat away. Most patients see amazing results in just a few weeks.
Since 1998, double Board Certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Michael Fiorillo has helped thousands of men and women reshape their bodies. He is very excited about the new-look CoolSculpting procedure, because it gives him another tool to help his patients look and feel better. Engineering a transformation that starts on the outside and spreads to the inside has always been Dr. Fiorillo’s passion, and his patients are the ones who benefit the most.
CoolSculpting relies on the simple premise that fat cells are much more susceptible to extreme cold than other body tissue. So, a targeted temperature reduction will kill the fat cells and leave other tissue cells completely unscathed. Over a brief period of time, usually a few weeks, the body sheds these dead fat cells through apoptosis (programmed cell death), a naturally-occurring process that you body undertakes every day. Because of the accelerated process, the results are not only immediate, they also improve over time.
At the beginning of the one to three hour in-office process, depending on how much fat Dr. Fiorillo targets, some patients report some mild discomfort. But that quickly dissipates, and many patients actually welcome the quiet time. CoolSculpting requires no anesthesia, not even a local, so there is absolutely no down time. In fact, most all patients are in a sitting position for the whole procedure.
Because of the ease of this procedure, and the results of it, cryolipolysis is often a good alternative to liposuction.
