Is CoolSculpting® Right for Me?

woman-coverupIf, despite your best efforts, you struggle to reduce or eliminate stubborn pockets of fat, you’re not alone. Even with a healthy diet and exercise regimen, many people are unhappy with certain “trouble spots,” which are typically found on the stomach, hips/flanks, and thighs. These areas tend to hold onto fatty tissue due to genetic predisposition. As a result, you may eat healthily, exercise regularly, and still not see any progress.

Fortunately, Dr. Jerome H. Liu and Dr. Tom S. Liu, our experienced plastic surgeons, understand if you desire an enhanced body contour but don’t want to undergo a surgical treatment that could require a lengthy recovery. They offer CoolSculpting® and DualSculpting to help you achieve your cosmetic goals with little to no downtime and natural-looking results. To be a qualified candidate for this innovative procedure you should be at or close to your ideal weight, and you should also be comfortable with the gradual nature of the process. Additionally, a consultation and examination with one of skilled surgeons can help to determine if CoolSculpting® will be right for your unique needs and aesthetic goals.

It’s important to note that CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss method. Furthermore, patience is necessary to achieve the desired outcome. In most cases, patients require anywhere from four to eight “cycles” (treatment zones) which can be completed in one day.  Because Liu Plastic Surgery offers DualSculpting, treatment time can often be cut in half for most areas.  In certain patients, a second session might be required.  The results speak for themselves, and if you prefer a non-surgical fat reduction method, few modalities can provide similar benefits with so few side effects.
