A Bergen County Plastic Surgery Center Explains the CoolSculpting® Procedure

Most people, no matter how much they diet and exercise to contour their bodies and achieve the look they want, soon encounter accumulations of fat that just refuse to go away. Yes, there are surgical methods for eliminating those “love handles” or “double chins” that bother you so much every time you look in the mirror, but now there is a non-invasive, non-surgical method of body sculpting that can enable you to target these problem areas and eliminate them.

What exactly is CoolSculpting®?

The CoolSculpting procedure, developed by medical technology innovator ZELTIQ, has recently been named as the ‘Best Non-Invasive Fat Reducer’ for the third year in a row in the NewBeauty Annual Beauty Awards. It is an innovative way to contour your body and eliminate problem areas by freezing away unwanted accumulations of diet- and exercise-resistant fat.

CoolSculpting works because fat cells in the body freeze at a higher temperature than the other cells around them. This allows Bergen County plastic surgeons to safely deliver precisely-controlled low temperatures to gently and effectively target accumulations of fat cells under the skin. Treated fat cells become frozen (crystallized) during the process and then die. Over time, your body processes the dead cells and removes them, leaving the treated areas more sculpted.

What’s it like to receive CoolSculpting® treatments?

The first step is to meet with our experts at our Bergen County plastic surgery center, who will work with you to develop a CoolSculpting® treatment plan that is customized for your body, and that focuses on your problem areas – the accumulations of fat that you want to remove. Then, in the sessions themselves, you simply relax and read a book or listen to music while the treatment device is positioned properly and controlled cooling is applied. The procedure is so gentle that most people are able to return to work or their normal activities immediately and typically see results very quickly in the weeks after treatments have been completed.
