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.

If you have additional questions about the procedure, you may want to look over the list of Questions and Answers on our CoolSculpting web page. Or, if you already know that you’re ready to get rid of those “problem areas” forever, give us a call at 201-693-4847 to arrange for a consultation and get the process started.

A Plastic Surgeon in Bergen County Explains What SmartLipo Is and How It Removes Unwanted Fat

Diet and exercise can do wonders to trim the body, but accumulations of fat can persist in “trouble spots” like the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, arms, and neck. If you have such problem areas, your plastic surgeon in Bergen County wants you to know about SmartLipo laser body contouring, a minimally-invasive, laser-assisted procedure that allows you to reshape your body the way you want.

What is SmartLipo?

SmartLipo is different from older forms of liposuction because it uses laser lipolysis to melt fat into liquid form, so it is much easier to remove it from the body. An additional benefit of using the laser is that it tightens your skin by causing collagen formation.

General anesthesia is not necessary, only local anesthesia, which is much safer, and is used to numb only the area through which the small laser tube is inserted. Once in place, the laser heats the targeted areas of fat and liquefies them, after which they are gently suctioned out. Recovery is faster and easier than with traditional liposuction, so there is less pain and bruising. Also, because SmartLipo actually tightens the skin through coagulation, you don’t have to worry about dimpling and sagging skin. Plus, in most cases you can return to your normal routine sooner.

What areas can be treated using SmartLipo?

Many patients at our Bergen County plastic surgery center have opted for SmartLipo treatment to remove accumulations of fat from their abdomens and buttocks. But SmartLipo can just as effectively be used to eliminate problem accumulations of fat from the legs, arms, face, and neck. Related SmartLipo procedures such as PrecisionTx can be used to treat problems of excessive sweating, and a specialized SmartLipo procedure called Cellulaze can be used to eliminate cellulite.

How do I find out more about SmartLipo procedures?

Simply pick up your telephone and give one of the best plastic surgeons in Bergen County at Chuback Medical Group a call at 201-693-4847 to set up a consultation. Dr. John Chuback and his dedicated associates will examine you and recommend the best possible treatments to help you achieve the body image you desire.

How to have young-looking hands again

Check out this new article about Chuback Medical Group at BERGENCOUNTY.COM

One of the best ways to tell a woman’s age is to look at her hands. As we age, our hands lose their youthful plumpness and begin to look bony and fragile. Veins, tendons and joints often protrude, and skin texture becomes thin and translucent. Age spots are common.

Combating the aging process takes more than just a hand cream with sunscreen. The latest anti-aging medical advancements in hand rejuvenation can make a dramatic improvement.

For serious bulging veins in the hands, patients might choose microphlebectomy, a minimally invasive procedure where unsightly veins are removed through tiny incisions. The procedure usually takes less than an hour and the recovery time is rapid. Patients experience little to no scarring with excellent clinical and cosmetic results.

To restore volume to older hands, a cosmetic filler, such as Radiesse, can be injected to give the hands plumpness. Another benefit is the filler can conceal protruding tendons.

“Radiesse immediately plumps up and replenishes volume to the back of the hands to provide a supple and youthful appearance,” says Dr. John Chuback, medical director of Chuback Medical Group in Paramus. “Placed beneath the skin, Radiesse raises the skin level so that tendons and joints lose their prominence.”

The key to Radiesse’s success, Chuback says, is that it provides a scaffold for collagen building. The body’s own collagen interweaves into this structure, which makes the skin feel soft, natural and smooth – and look younger.

Applying Radiesse for hand rejuvenation is a simple and easy in-office procedure that usually takes 30 minutes. Patients can resume their normal daily activities without any downtime. Results are seen immediately and can last up to a year. Repeat injections are usually needed to maintain optimal corrections.

Lastly, patients can even out their skin tone by removing brown spots that have accumulated over many years. Dr. Jaime Bastidas, a board-certified plastic surgeon at Chuback Medical Group, uses the PicoSure Laser to target hyperpigmented areas due to sun damage.

Unlike expensive skin care serums and moisturizers, PicoSure’s laser light reaches deep below the surface of the skin causing the brown spots to fade away. Depending on your skin type, multiple sessions may be recommended to achieve the best results. PicoSure laser skin treatments are not considered painful, but a cooling cream is available to help alleviate discomfort during the procedure. After treatment, some redness and minor swelling is common, but will resolve rapidly. Most people can resume their regular activities immediately following treatment.

Treatments with Microphlebectomy, Radiesse and PicoSure are considered an elective procedure and not covered by insurance. The staff at Chuback Medical Group will consult with prospective patients and discuss payment options for the procedure. For more information, call 201-693-4847 or visit chubackmedical.com.
