How CoolSculpting Works to Remove Fat from the Body

Metairie Plastic Surgeon, Cynthia Mizgala MD offers CoolSculpting®, a non-surgical way to eliminate stubborn fat much faster than diet or exercise. Best of all, no downtime. Dr. Mizgala's practice, A Woman Plastic Surgeon, is CoolSculpting Certified and located in Metairie, LA, a suburb of New Orleans. CoolSculpting® is a revolutionary technology that targets and cools unwanted fat cells in the selected area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat bulges. Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting involves no needles, surgery, or downtime. Patients often spend the procedure time reading, working on their laptops, or simply relaxing. It's safe, FDA-cleared and effective. Results look natural and can be seen as early as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results after one to three months.

CoolSculpting targets and cools fat cells to temperatures that trigger their natural death. Importantly, because lipids in fat crystallize faster than normal cells, there is no damage to nerves or other tissue. Over the next few weeks and months the fat cells shrink and begin to die as the patient's own body metabolizes them and naturally eliminates them. The overall fat layer is significantly reduced which results in a noticeable and measurable reduction in the fat bulge around the targeted flank.
