CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting

Our patients love CoolSculpting because it requires:

  • No anesthesia
  • No artificial substances
  • No needles
  • No incisions
  • No prolonged down time

It also provides:

  • Proven results
  • 75-95% patient satisfaction

Dr Brian Klink and his colleagues at Solano Plastic Surgery are dedicated to the health and happiness of patients at our practice. They are always alert to new procedures and treatments that give individuals the ability to transform their appearance, subtly or dramatically. One such treatment is cryolipolysis, a non-invasive solution that uses cold to freeze away unwanted body fat.

Cryolipolysis is an effective method for spot-treating problem areas such as love handles and bra bulge that cannot be corrected with diet and exercise. Rumor has it that the process was discovered when doctors studied children eating ice pops and noticed that those who ate the most experienced a loss of fat in their cheeks.

CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment that harnesses the power of cryolipolysis. It was developed by two Harvard medical doctors and has a proven track record of effectiveness:

  • Studied in more than 4,000 clinical trial patients
  • 2 million treatments performed worldwide
  • Proven results
  • 75-95% patient satisfaction

Dr Klink uses CoolSculpting at Solano Plastic Surgery to help patients achieve the bodies they desire.

Top 5 Benefits of Body Contouring with CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment. As such it is safer and leads to fewer complications than surgical procedures for fat reduction. Additionally, patients at Solano Plastic Surgery give CoolSculpting top marks because it requires:

  • No anesthesia
  • No artificial substances
  • No needles
  • No incisions
  • No prolonged down time

5 Areas of the Body Treated with CoolSculpting

Based on clinical trials, a single CoolSculpting treatment can reduce 25% of targeted fat cells in 2-4 months in troublesome areas including:

  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Inner thighs
  • Outer thighs
  • Arms

The results are noticeable, but natural-looking, making love handles and muffin tops a thing of the past.

What makes CoolSculpting for body contouring especially popular is that the fat cells are removed permanently. When you lose and gain weight, you don’t lose and gain fat cells. The size of the cells may change, but not the number.

Dr Klink’s extensive practical experience enables him to design a customized approach to body contouring that is an ideal fit for each individual patient and his/her goals. For some people, a customized treatment plan may include more than one CoolSculpting treatment area. For example, you may want to freeze away fat from your inner and/or outer thighs—and also get rid of that muffin top.

The Science Behind CoolSculpting

Clinical research confirms that CoolSculpting provides noticeable reduction of unwanted fat. Nearly a dozen studies confirm that CoolSculpting provides measurable fat reduction over the course of 2 to 4 months after the treatment.

During a CoolSculpting treatment, a non-invasive applicator cools the targeted fat tissue without disrupting the skin, nerves, muscles, and other tissue. Over time, the cooled fat cells die. The body then gradually and naturally eliminates the dead cells. This reduces the thickness of the unwanted fat layer.

Additional treatments may be administered 2 to 4 months after the initial treatment to achieve greater fat reduction.

Other Options for Body Contouring

Traditionally, the only way to reshape your body was with invasive surgical procedures:

  • Liposuction
  • Tummy Tuck
  • Arm Lift
  • Body Lift
  • Thigh Lift

Unlike CoolSculpting, these surgeries have several negatives, including:

  • Expense
  • Protracted down time
  • Possibility of scarring
  • Risk of infection and/or complications

Are You A Good Candidate for CoolSculpting?

If you are in good health and have realistic expectations about the benefits you will receive from a fat freezing treatment, you are likely to be an excellent candidate for CoolSculpting. During your initial consultation, our staff will go over your medical history, lifestyle, and aesthetic goals to ensure that this is the right treatment for you.

It should be noted that CoolSculpting is not intended to be a weight-loss treatment. It is generally most effective on people who are within 30 pounds of their ideal body weight, but have areas of excess fat that don’t respond to diet or exercise.

CoolSculpting is not for everyone. Let us know if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria.

How to Prepare for a CoolSculpting Consultation

Great endings in cosmetic enhancement start with great beginnings. At our practice, we start with an in-depth consultation with each patient. You will have the opportunity to discuss your physical and cosmetic goals, and share information about yourself and your lifestyle. A clinician will evaluate you as a candidate for non-surgical body contouring and determine whether CoolSculpting is the right approach to solve your problem.

You should come to the consultation prepared to discuss your complete medical history, including:

  • Medical conditions (past and present)
  • Drug allergies
  • Previous surgeries
  • Current medications (prescription, OTC, herbal)
  • Use of alcohol, tobacco and recreational drugs
  • Your chief motivation for undergoing CoolSculpting
  • The outcome you expect from the treatment

Your preliminary consultation will also include:

  • A physical to evaluate the elasticity of your skin
  • A discussion of your options and Dr Klink’s recommended course of treatment
  • A review of likely outcomes, including risks or potential complications
  • A discussion of healing, recovery, and benefits

CoolSculpting vs. Other Body Contouring Treatments

We are fortunate to live in a time when there are seemingly endless ways to address unwanted fat on the body. With all the benefits of CoolSculpting, you may be wondering why it hasn’t replaced all other treatments. The reason is simple: CoolSculpting is not the solution for everyone.

The key to treating unwanted fat is identifying the cause of its development: age, weight loss, stress, etc. The best way to figure that out is with the help of an experienced plastic surgeon. During his career, Dr Klink has counselled hundreds of patients to help them find the best treatment for their stubborn body fat. These treatments include:

  • CoolSculpting – CoolSculpting is an ideal solution for people who are within a few pounds of their ideal weight with fat bulges that are two-inches or less when pinched. It is especially effective for treating love handles and muffin tops.
    CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment that freezes excess fat cells, causing them to die and gradually be eliminated by the body’s natural processes. It does not harm skin or muscles, so there is no down time.
  • CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction – Liposuction is appropriate for our patients who want dramatic, rather than subtle results. Dr Klink may recommend lipo to patients with more than an inch or two of pinchable fat in the chosen treatment area.
    Liposuction is an invasive procedure. It carries the risk of all surgeries such as anesthesia risks and blood clots, and may require downtime of up to a few weeks.
  • CoolSculpting vs.Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) – This surgery flattens the abdomen by removing extra fat and skin, and tightening muscles in your abdominal wall. It remains the gold standard for treating loose and excess abdominal skin, particularly in post-pregnant women and people who have lost a considerable amount of weight.
    Like liposuction, abdominoplasty carries surgical risks such as bleeding, infection, and scarring. It can take up to six weeks before a patient can resume his/her normal activities.

How to Prepare for Your CoolSculpting Treatment

On the day of your CoolSculpting treatment, you should arrive at Solano Plastic Surgery early to complete patient paperwork. We suggest that you wear loose, comfortable clothing that can provide easy access to the treatment areas. Beyond that, there is very little to do. There are no special pills or food that you need to take, and neither local anesthesia nor painkillers are required.
In some instances, Dr Klink may recommend that patients avoid blood thinners to reduce the risk of bruising.

What to Expect During & After a CoolSculpting Treatment

Dealing with unfamiliar faces in unfamiliar places can be unnerving. That doesn’t happen at Solano Plastic Surgery. Our patients are able to stay relaxed and at ease because CoolSculpting is an in-office treatment.

During this simple treatment, a gel pad will be placed on the area to protect your skin from frostbite. The treatment device draws the fat bulge up between two cooling panels. Most patients describe the sensation as a firm, but painless pull and tug. A specialized applicator is used to painlessly cool the fat cells in the targeted area. There are several different shapes and types of applicators to fit and sculpt different body shapes and bulges.
A treatment may last from one to several hours, depending on how much body contouring you are having done. During that time, you can read, talk on the phone, watch a movie on your mobile device, or just lie back and snooze. When your treatment is finished, you can return to your regular activities immediately.

No supplements or medications are required after your CoolSculpting treatment. It’s not a diet or exercise program, so you won’t need to change your lifestyle, though many of our patients do feel more motivated to take care of themselves after a CoolSculpting treatment.

What is the Average Cost of CoolSculpting?

Men and women of all ages and sizes and with varying degrees of body fat come to our practice for help. Each patient is unique, and Dr Klink creates a unique treatment plan for each individual based on a range of factors that can affect the final cost:

  • Areas that need treatment
  • The number of treatments required
  • A patient’s ultimate goals

During your preliminary consultation, you will be given all the specifics of treatment as it applies to your circumstances, including a firm cost.
