While exercise is important to maintaining a healthy body weight, many of my patients often complain about stubborn abdominal fat that never seems to go away. Countless hours at the gym and sit-ups may not always reduce unwanted abdominal bulges. A solution to this problem is a revolutionary procedure called CoolSculpting.
CoolSculpting is a clinically proven and non-invasive procedure that destroys unwanted fat cells by a controlled cooling method known as Cryolipolysis. Over a period of two to four months following the procedure, the crystallized fat cells break down and are naturally flushed from the body. On average, each CoolSculpting procedure results in a 20% reduction of fat in the treated area. After the initial treatment, patients can attain further fat reductions with additional procedures.
CoolSculpting is ideal for patients who are physically fit and who are at or close to their ideal body weight. Patients may start to see results following one CoolSculpting procedure as quickly as three weeks after treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. Since fat cells are permanently removed after the CoolSculpting procedure, long-term results should remain stable as long as you maintain your weight with normal diet and exercise.
Patients can expect minimal discomfort during the treatment, and may return to normal activities immediately following the procedure. Some patients may experience redness, minimal tenderness, minor bruising, tingling, or numbness in the treated area, but this is temporary.
Dr. Jeffrey Hunt and the team at the Vein and Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay were the first in the area to offer this innovative procedure for reduction of unwanted abdominal fat.
