Over the years, cosmetic surgeries had become the fad among appearance conscious people leading to the ever-expanding cosmetic industry. This is not the scenario anymore as the new health-conscious mainstream consumers, however, are not comfortable with the idea of going "under the knife" anymore.
With high-tech, affordable, and quick options available, the number of cosmetic surgical procedures have declined significantly over the last decade in the USA. Earlier Liposuctions was the standard procedure for fat reduction. However, today it has declined by 30 % since 2000 as there is an alternative option called Coolsculpting or in simple terms Body contouring which is driving the change in consumer demand.
It is a non-surgical practice performed by a plastic surgeon for eliminating fat cells in a small targeted area. It is not a weight loss program, and neither does it treat obesity. A device is used to restrict fat cells present under the skin, and once the fat cells are destroyed, it is broken down and removed from the body by liver functions.
This technique is still new as the US Food and drugs administration approved it in 2012 only. The average Coolsculpting session lasts about an hour for treating a particular area and costs approximately $1000 per area. Total costs depend on the number of areas treated.
Coolsculpting is not a fat elimination solution for each and everyone just like liposuction. It is suggested only for a mild reduction in fat or so-called body contouring and that too after the surgeon taking into consideration the age, skin type, and other factors in account.
Though it is safe and an effective way to remove fat cells in a small area, people with weak immune systems, pregnancy, diabetic neuropathy, skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema, chronic pain, hernia, need to avoid this procedure.
Results show that there are several advantages associated with it.
CoolSculpting is still a relatively new procedure, and clinical research and studies are small. Research so far suggests that it is a low-risk option for removing only small amounts of fat and that the full results in most people will only show after one to four months.
As it is a relatively new branch in a cosmetic procedure, there are only a few medical professional or cosmetic surgeons who are aware of this kind of treatment. Therefore, anyone who is interested in this type of treatment should first discuss with their physician. They can advise best on whether it is the right option as they know their patient’s medical history.
It is better to choose an experienced, trusted professional, such as a dermatologist or plastic surgeon are practicing Coolsculpting Treatment in Austin for safe procedures.
