If you are a fit, healthy individual who is tired of struggling with unwanted fat in certain areas of your body, but want to forgo an invasive cosmetic procedure, then CoolSculpting may be the option for you. 

Contour your body with the help of CoolSculpting

Noninvasive options like CoolSculpting can help you contour targeted areas of the body without any incisions or unnecessary downtime. The CoolSculpting treatment essentially freezes fat cells away. Performed via a controlled cooling mechanism, CoolSculpting can help reduce stubborn fat on the stomach, back, thighs, flank area, and more. Each CoolSculpting session performed by Dr. Rao and his expert staff in Tucson, AZ, is customized to meet the needs of each patient and target their problem zones. For some patients, a single CoolSculpting session can yield amazing results. This fat reduction procedure has some cool science behind it, and here is how it works.

The science behind freezing fat cells away

Both women and men can struggle with pockets of unwanted fat in various parts of the body that remain unaffected by diet and exercise. The science behind the CoolSculpting treatment is the patented noninvasive body sculpting device which is applied to the target areas, delivering a controlled cooling substance that freezes fat cells. The frozen fat cells die off and liquify, which the body eventually absorbs or is naturally eliminated. Once frozen, the terminated fat cells will not return or be replaced by other fat cells in the particular target area along as individuals maintain their current weight. 

After Dr. Rao has determined if you are a qualified candidate for CoolSculpting, you can prepare for the 30-60 minute body contouring session at the Tucson, AZ office of Rao Plastic & Hand Surgery. The CoolSculpting method is a safe, noninvasive body sculpting procedure with very few, if any, side effects. You can typically return to normal daily activities after your appointment but may feel a little tender or have mild soreness in the treated areas. The temporary side effects can be treated with over the counter pain medications and don't require time off from work. 

Noninvasive body sculpting with CoolSculpting

The CoolSculpting procedure is ideal for adults who are physically fit but are struggling with stubborn areas of extra fat. It is important to understand that CoolSculpting is classified as a noninvasive body contouring procedure but is not a weight-loss solution. It is not recommended for men and women who are significantly overweight, women who are pregnant, or for individuals with certain chronic health issues. With that said, CoolSculpting can deliver dramatic results for those ideal candidates. Some CoolSculpting patients in Tucson, AZ may need additional sessions to achieve the right aesthetic goals. In about 2-6 months, after the final CoolSculpting session, the dead fat cells have been completely eliminated, leaving behind smooth, toned results. 

Use patience in waiting for CoolSculpting results

CoolSculpting results are not immediate, so try to be patient. After the target area is treated, the frozen fat cells turn to liquid and are naturally eliminated or absorbed by the body. This process can take up to 12 weeks. CoolSculpting reduces about 20-25 percent of fat cells and in most cases, the frozen fat does not return back to the targeted areas once treatment is complete. However, if patients don't maintain their current weight, new fat cells can form in place of the previously eliminated ones. 

After undergoing the treatment, Tucson, AZ patients are usually so pleased with their CoolSculpting results that it motivates them more to stay healthy and remain active in order to maintain their new look.
