TRANSCRIPT: So, there are many ways to remove fat, some of which require surgery and anesthesia such as liposuction, and other more non-invasive methods that effectively remove fat without the need for surgery or anesthesia. One of these methods is CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting is a technology that allows surgeons to selectively lower the temperature of the fat and thereby allow the fat cells themselves to be eliminated. It’s non-invasive which means it doesn’t require any anesthesia or surgical downtime. It literally can allow patients to drive themselves to our office, have a 35-minute procedure, and drive themselves home. It doesn’t require the wearing of cumbersome garments and it doesn’t have the surgical recovery of limited activities. Patients often can find themselves returning to fairly normal strenuous activities within a few days or certainly within a week. It has less effective result in terms of how much fat is removed at each setting, but with multiple treatments, a similar result to liposuction can be achieved. I’m Doctor Jeremy William, a board certified plastic surgeon here at Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery.
