Fort Worth non-surgical fat reduction with CoolSculpting®
Coming soon to Kirby Plastic Surgery
Do you regularly work out, eat healthy foods, and try to take great care of yourself, only to battle an area or two of stubborn fat that just will not go away? Diet- and exercise-resistant fatty bulges are a very common occurrence, and they can be particularly frustrating when you’re doing everything right.
If that sounds familiar, it may be time to consider CoolSculpting. This wildly popular treatment is the #1 non-invasive fat reduction procedure in the world—and it requires no surgery, needles, or downtime.
How CoolSculpting works to spot-treat stubborn fat
CoolSculpting uses a proprietary technology called cryolipolysis to cool fat cells to the exact point of breakdown without harming surrounding tissues. This controlled cooling selectively kills the targeted fat cells, which are then naturally metabolized as waste and eliminated from the body.
Did you know…? Cryolipolysis was inspired by Harvard University research suggesting that children who frequently ate popsicles started developing dimples because the icy treat was “freezing” fat in the cheeks.
The safety and efficacy of CoolSculpting has been repeatedly proven by clinical studies. Many patients experience around 20% fat reduction in the treated areas, with results appearing over the span of around 90 days. Results are long-lasting with a continued healthy diet and exercise routine.
Where can CoolSculpting be performed?
Kirby Plastic Surgery offers the latest CoolSculpting technology and the the full suite applicators, so we can help you reduce trouble areas from head to toe. Currently, CoolSculpting is FDA cleared to spot-treat persistent fat in the following areas:
- Flanks (“love handles”)
- Inner & outer thighs
- Under the buttocks (“banana roll”)
- Bra rolls
- Back fat
- Upper arms
- Double chin reduction with CoolMini
About our applicators
We have invested in the latest CoolAdvantage series of applicators that are more comfortable and treat larger areas in a shorter period of time. When you visit with Dr. Kirby for your consultation, she will assess your areas of concern to determine if CoolSculpting is the right choice for you and which applicator will provide the best results.
It’s important to remember that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss solution. Patients who respond best to treatment are overall happy with their weight and proportions but hope to refine their curves or lessen the appearance of a bulge. For larger areas of fat, liposuction remains the best solution.
DualSculpting at Kirby Plastic Surgery
We are proud to offer two CoolSculpting machines to improve your treatment experience. The ability to treat multiple areas at the same time means fewer office visits and more symmetrical results.
DualSculpting benefits include:
- We can treat twice the fat in half the time
- Take care of multiple problem areas in a single visit
- See results appear gradually and evenly on both sides of the body
What to expect during your CoolSculpting treatment
On your day of treatment, you will be shown to a private room where you can settle in and get comfortable. We will mark your areas of concern so the CoolSculpting applicator can be positioned for maximum results. A cool gel pad will be placed on the treatment area under the CoolSculpting device.
When treatment begins, it’s normal to feel a brief, intense cold and firm tugging as the applicator suctions to your skin and the cooling begins. The level of pressure you feel with depend on the type of applicator used and area treated. The cold sensation typically lasts just a few minutes, at which point the area goes numb; most of our patients report that any initial discomfort is bearable and short-lived. During your session, you can read a book, catch up on work, or even watch your favorite show. Treatment can take as little as 35 minutes.
Many patients are pleased with their results after just one session, but depending on your individual concerns and goals, you may need a few additional CoolSculpting treatments to get the results you want.
