Lumpy, bumpy fat bulges are almost inevitable. The problem is, isolated pockets of fat on areas such as the abdomen, flanks, bra-line, and thighs can dramatically affect our self-confidence. Even with careful attention to calorie intake and routine workouts, some areas of fatty tissue feel like they are here to stay.
Cleared for patient use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2010, CoolSculpting has revolutionized the world of fat elimination, decreasing localized fatty tissue without incisions or sutures. The noninvasive technique freezes away fat cells using extreme cold temperatures. After three to four months, a single CoolSculpting session can offer a 25-30% reduction in fatty tissue and the results can look beautiful for years. Let’s look at the six most popular areas for CoolSculpting:
Batwings, bingo wings, or upper arm flab – no matter what you can the jiggly excess of skin and fat along the upper arm, it still equates to frustration and embarrassment. Short sleeves, tank tops, and bathing suits are much less appealing when this blob of extra tissue forms and no amount of exercise or lifting weights can help.
CoolSculpting is an excellent choice for shrinking away the unwanted fatty tissue above the elbow. The 35-minute technique can slim the upper arm dramatically, and if you are looking for additional improvement, a second CoolSculpting session can double the results. Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery is one of the few Houston area practices that offers Dual Sculpting®, which lets you treat both upper arms during the same treatment session.
When you think twice about wearing shorts because of that unsightly inner or outer thigh fat, it is time to make a change. Unfortunately, even those people that hit the gym regularly can still notice the appearance of bulging saddlebags which detract from otherwise attractive legs.
CoolSculpting has a set of uniquely designed applicators that can address the thighs, effectively targeting the soft, inner thigh, as well as the firm, non-pinchable outer thigh. The freezing temperature only damages the fat cells, never the healthy cells, which is then slowly and safely metabolized away by the body. While at first, you may feel a cold sensation, the cool temperatures actually numb the area, so no anesthesia is needed. Once your session is over, you will feel just fine to walk out of the office and back to normal activities.
Many men spend hours in the gym, trying to get the perfect ‘6-pack’. In some cases, however, a stubborn layer of fat lays on top of the muscle, and can be almost impossible to eliminate with sit ups and crunches.
CoolSculpting is the perfect accompaniment for abdominal workouts. The noninvasive technique can melt away the fatty tissue that covers the abdominal muscles, giving you the chance to show off a chiseled stomach.
Under the Buttocks
A beautiful bottom has nice volume and curvature, looking proportionate yet flattering to your body type. However, an extra accumulation of fat tissue, immediately under the cheeks, can take totally ruin the shape of beautiful round buttocks.
Called a ‘banana roll’, this extra accumulation of fat can be addressed with CoolSculpting, freezing away the fat cells below the buttocks. In three to four months, the annoying pouch of tissue will be gone. This gives you the chance to show off all of the hard work you’ve done toning your bottom without the distraction of extra fluff.
Similar to the ‘banana roll’ that peeks out under the buttocks, the bra bulge can squeak itself out around the bra or bathing suit top. A bra bulge is usually spotted along your upper back, right above your bra’s elastic strap. The bulge can often be seen under tight t-shirts, workout clothing, and swimwear.
CoolSculpting has a set of applicators ready to treat smaller, tighter areas like bra fat. If the 25% reduction in fat from your first CoolSculpting treatment isn’t quite enough for the results you would like, a second session can be scheduled, doubling the benefits. Dual Sculpting®, or two CoolSculpting machines, means you can have both of your bra bulges conveniently treated at the same time.
One of the most exciting areas for CoolSculpting is its use under the jawline and chin, treating the puffy and billowy submental fat. Also known as a Double Chin, the pocket of fatty tissue commonly forms with age, and can be seen on almost anyone, no matter their physical size. A double chin takes away from otherwise youthful features, aging the appearance.
While you will have several options for treating submental fat, including liposuction or dozens of Kybella injections in the chin, the fastest and safest method involves CoolSculpting. Using the smallest applicator, this stubborn and unattractive tissue is eliminated in half an hour. Best of all, CoolSculpting’s results are long-lasting, as the fat cells will not return.
