What is CoolSculpting?

Small pockets of fat can be sometimes be concealed by clothing, but some stubborn fat cannot be hidden by most outfits; especially in South Florida where we like to show our assets. You can consider CoolSculpting to get rid of fat pockets. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, FDA-approved procedure that removes stubborn fat areas. CoolSculpting is offered by Storch Sárraga Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Facility at their Aventura Coolsculpting Center where patients are helped in slimming and smoothing stubborn fat deposits in most areas of the body.

Who is a Candidate?

Many individuals cannot eliminate stubborn fat with diet and exercising alone. CoolSculpting is one of the most in-demand body contouring solutions for these individuals, involving cryolipolysis treatment in which the fat cells are frozen and destroyed. The best thing about CoolSculpting is that no incisions or needles are required, leaving the surrounding tissues entirely intact. The skin is left without any marks and the areas treated remain scarless after CoolSculpting.

What are the Benefits of CoolSculpting?

The versatility of the treatment lies in its ability for treating multiple regions, including the abdomen, chin, flanks, back, bra-fat, inner knees, lower buttock, and inner and outer thighs. CoolSculpting has recently updated its applicators which treat larger area in less time, taking around 35 minutes and requiring fewer sessions. The new CoolSculpting Advantage applicators recently introduced are efficient in treating upper arms and double chin. This new technology is being offered by Storch Sarraga Plastic Surgery, with the ability to treat two areas at the same time with two machines and with a dedicated Coolsculpting room and experienced technicians.

What is the process like?

To perform CoolSculpting, the applicator is placed on the desired area and a vacuum mechanism is turned on to bring the fat cells closer to the surface of the skin. The area under the cup is chilled and numbed by the custom chilling panels and fat cells are frozen via controlled cooling. The treated fat cells die, while the surrounding nerves, skin, and muscles are protected. Bruising, discomfort, trauma and downtime are minimized due to the noninvasive nature of the procedure.

What are the results?

The results of CoolSculpting involve a scarless and slim body with a reduction of bulging fat pockets. The full effects of CoolSculpting might take a few weeks to a few months to appear. Results are long-lasting, as treated areas usually stay slim and the fat deposits cannot return. Healthy diet and regular exercise may help to enhance and prolong the results.
