Louis P. Bucky, MD discusses the advantages of CoolSculpting for men and women seeking a non-surgical fat reduction treatment.
Philadelphia, PA — No matter how healthy the diet or rigorous the exercise routine, some individuals are simply unable to eliminate localized buildups of fat in certain areas of the body, says Dr. Louis P. Bucky, a board certified plastic surgeon in Philadelphia. Some of the most common regions in which this stubborn fat tends to accumulate include the abdomen, back, thighs, arms, hips and under the chin. For women and men interested in diminishing – or even eliminating – problematic pockets of fat in these areas without invasive surgery, Dr. Bucky notes that an innovative procedure known as CoolSculpting® can often provide an excellent solution.
CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment designed to reduce localized fatty tissue that proves resistant to traditional means of diet and exercise. In comparison to surgical alternatives such as liposuction, Dr. Bucky explains that this revolutionary body contouring technique can offer patients the following benefits:
- No needles, incisions, or surgery of any kind
- A relaxing treatment session with little to no discomfort
- No need for local or general anesthesia
- Minimal to no side effects, downtime, or recovery
During treatment, Dr. Bucky says the CoolSculpting® technology utilizes a precisely regulated cooling technique called Cryolipolysis™ to freeze fat cells in the targeted region without harming surrounding tissues and/or underlying anatomical structures. Once frozen, these fat cells gradually break down and are eventually removed from the body by way of natural metabolic processes. Fat in the treatment area can be reduced by at least 20% after just a single CoolSculpting® session, states Dr. Bucky, though multiple treatments may be necessary for some individuals to achieve an optimal outcome.
While CoolSculpting® can be a great fat reduction option for many women and men, the Philadelphia plastic surgeon notes that patients should be at or close to their ideal weight prior to treatment, as CoolSculpting® is not intended to help people lose weight. In addition, he advises anyone considering this state-of-the-art procedure to seek the expertise of a trained and experienced provider. By doing so, patients can help to ensure they receive the safest and highest level of care from start to finish of their treatment.
