My Cool Story

A few weeks back, I wrote a blog entry about CoolSculpting, a non-surgical procedure that freezes fat that we now offer at Miami Plastic Surgery. I would never offer my patients a treatment that I wouldn't have done myself, so I went ahead and had it done (I mean, who doesn't want a little help losing that extra bulge?!). I lead an overall healthy lifestyle, but there are still some stubborn areas of fat that no amount of diet and exercise have been able to eliminate. 

The actual treatment was not bad at all! When they initially place the suction applicator on the area to be treated, it was definitely cold, however I became numb to it within the first few minutes. CoolSculpting is a 60 minute treatment, and I spent the rest of the time watching TV and answering emails on my iPad.

After the treatment, I experienced a little tenderness and redness, but it went away within a day or two. Within two weeks, I began seeing results so i decided to have another treatment done. I am now only 6 weeks out, and the results are amazing! Optimal results in most patients aren't seen until 12 weeks. 

CoolSculpting is definitely not a weight loss method, however if you are someone who leads a relatively healthy lifestyle, but still have noticeable bulges in areas that you'd like to get rid of, I'd definitely recommend this procedure. There's no anesthesia, no needles, no down time, and most importantly, it give great results!
