A cutting-edge, non-invasive body-sculpting technique is making ripples in the cosmetic world: Coolsculpting. Without the use of a single knife or any damaging of the skin, Coolsculpting destroys fat. It does this by freezing underlying layers of fat in a localized area.
Though the technology is groundbreaking, the procedure itself is pretty straightforward. After consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Stanley Okoro where you will discuss aesthetic goals, you will select the area to be treated.
On the day of the procedure, you will be fully awake and resting comfortably while the Coolsculpting device is positioned on your body. The device then draws the targeted area between two cooling panels, which feels like a firm pulling. After an hour, where you are free to perform limited activity like reading, the process is done. Some patients experience some redness or minor bruising of the area, but you are free to immediately return to normal life.
