Lipo Alternative Freezes Fat Away

Hundreds of thousands undergo liposuction each year to remove belly fat that just won’t budge with diet and exercise. However, there’s a new procedure that promises to remove fat with no downtime or surgical risks.

Known as CoolSculpting, the non-invasive procedure freezes fat away.

“I think people just don’t have the time to take off for a surgical procedure,” Dr. Jeffrey Marvel of Marvel Cosmetic Surgery told WKRN-TV in Nashville. “Some people have a little fear about needles, downtime and anesthesia and so it really fits in the lifestyles to not have to be down at all.

Amanda Peralta, a 28-year-old Nashville nurse, recently underwent the procedure at Marvel’s office and admits she had considered plastic surgery before.

“When I lost a lot of weight, I had a lot of extra skin, so I thought about different procedures, such as a tummy tuck or a body lift,” Peralta explained to WKRN-TV.

She considered the surgical risks and decided to try the CoolSculpting method instead.

“As a nurse, you think of all the different things that could go wrong,” Peralta told WKRN-TV. “You weigh your options and this seemed to be the best option for me.”

The fat and skin is pulled into a suction device, which freezes the tissue, damaging the fat without harming the skin. The fat cells then die and the body naturally extinguishes them over time. The entire procedure lasts about an hour.

“When it first comes on, it’s a little uncomfortable, because it’s sucking your skin in there, but after it gets cold, you don’t feel anything,” Peralta told WKRN-TV.

Peralta has undergone two treatments and claims she is pleased with the results so far. CoolScultping is a safe and effective procedure, but it’s not for everyone.

“This is really for folks, who have a minimal amount of excess weight,” Marvel explained to WKRN-TV. “They exercise, they diet, eat correctly, but they have stubborn areas that they just can’t seem to get rid of with exercise and dieting alone. They’re really the ideal candidates.

The FDA approved procedure involves no downtime. Most patients go back to work the same day. Final results take up to a few months to see. The price ranges from 650 dollars for a small area of fat to over 1,000 dollars for a larger area per treatment.

Smart Lipo is another great non-invasive way to remove fat. The laser-assisted liposuction procedure disrupts fat cells and tightens tissue.
