Many people want to reduce fat in certain areas yet are apprehensive about undergoing liposuction. If this describes you, CoolSculpting® performed by board-certified South Jersey plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Mohit Sood at his Linwood, New Jersey clinic could be the way to go. Dr. Sood has attended CoolSculpting® University (an intense training program offered by Zeltiq®) and is CoolSculpting® certified. Although it’s non-surgical, CoolSculpting® is very technique-driven. There is a real learning curve to understand how to get the best results. You’ll benefit from Dr. Sood’s added experience and all the best practices he learned from the experts.
CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive procedure approved by the FDA to remove fat cells by freezing them. Once fat cells have been frozen, they will naturally be eliminated from your body over time. This results in permanent fat loss in problem areas with very few side effects. A CoolSculpting® procedure takes between one and two hours.
Benefits of CoolSculpting®
The many benefits offered to South Jersey patients by CoolSculpting ® are as follows:
- Works on any area of the body
- Eliminates the need for surgery to remove fat cells
- Helps firm and tighten problem areas that do not respond well to diet and exercise
- Requires no downtime
CoolMini™ Applicator to Treat Submental Fat
CoolSculpting® can be used to tighten small areas of fat, such as below the chin. Using a CoolMini™ applicator, Dr. Sood can reduce the appearance of submental fat, also known as a double chin. This non-invasive treatment completed in one to two visits can drastically improve your appearance. By freezing fat cells, the CoolMini™ applicator can quickly give your face a youthful, slimmer look.
Submental fat can be difficult to reduce through diet and exercise. This applicator is FDA approved and designed to address troublesome areas with ease. The CoolMini™ applicator does not require the use of needles, surgery or downtime. Within 12 weeks, Dr. Sood can erase the existence of a double chin in South Jersey patients, helping them boost their confidence and self-image
How Is CoolSculpting® Performed?
Dr. Sood will give the area where fat is to be removed a final look to determine exactly how much to eliminate. He may also make markings on your skin to help. After that, you will undress if needed, and then lie on an examining table so the CoolSculpting® applicator can be applied to your skin.
A small amount of tissue may be suctioned by the applicator to facilitate this process. Cold is then administered, which in turn kills fat cells underneath the skin’s surface. Fat is then naturally eliminated over the course of several weeks to give you the results you desire.
DualSculpting: FREEZE YOUR FAT IN HALF THE TIME
As an added benefit to you, Dr. Sood has two CoolSculpting® machines, which he can use at the same time. This is called DualSculpting. DualSculpting will decrease your treatment time since instead of treating your love handles in two hours, both sides can now be treated in just one hour. Eliminating unwanted fat is now even easier, and it can occur in half the time!
Preparing for CoolSculpting®
Since CoolSculpting® is a very simple procedure; no preparation is required ahead of time. All you need to do is show up on the day of your appointment with clean skin and piercings removed.
Recovery from CoolSculpting®
Your skin may feel slightly numb or tingly immediately after CoolSculpting® due to the cold that’s applied. This sensation typically takes around an hour or so to go away. Some mild bruising may also be present, but this is normally not noticeable after a few days.
How Much Does CoolSculpting® Cost?
The amount of fat you wish to have removed largely determines your CoolSculpting® cost. An itemized cost will be provided to you during your consultation, along with information on payment options such as cash, personal checks, credit cards, and CareCredit® financing.
Is CoolSculpting® Right for Me?
South Jersey patients who lead an active lifestyle, yet have not been able to firm and tone certain areas, CoolSculpting® can give them the results they desire without interfering with your normal routine.
Why Choose Dr. Mohit Sood for CoolSculpting®?
The removal of fat cells through CoolSculpting® is permanent. Any procedure that results in lifelong effects should only be trusted to an experienced, board-certified surgeon such as Dr. Sood.
What to Expect During Your CoolSculpting® Consultation
Dr. Sood will examine the areas you wish to have treated and try to give you a reasonable idea as to what your results might be. He will also show you before and after pictures of other patients who had similar areas of the body treated to make sure you fully understand what to expect.
The benefits of CoolSculpting® become even more apparent as time goes on and will continue to be noticeable for many years. If achieving a firmer, tighter body without surgery sounds good to you, contact Dr. Mohit Sood’s South Jersey clinic at (609) 904-5390.
