Liposuction, like any plastic surgery procedure, is a big decision that requires careful consideration and some downtime. If you don't have time for recovery and you want to slim down those frustrating fat deposits, you may want to consider one of the newest non-surgical options to liposuction in Louisiana: CoolSculpting®, now available at The Wall Center.
Requiring no downtime, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive method of fat removal that works by gently cooling the fat cells below the skin. By using controlled cooling, CoolSculpting is able to safely freeze the targeted fat cells, which are subsequently removed by the natural cleansing processes of your body. This method is FDA-approved and provides safe, comfortable fat removal for men and women in the Ark-La-Tex region and beyond.
To get started with your CoolSculpting procedure, request a consultation at The Wall Center for Plastic Surgery or call our office at (888) 791-1053. Conveniently located in Shreveport, we serve patients from across Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas, and offer a complete array of cosmetic surgery and skin care treatments through Jade MediSpa.
While body contouring surgery isn't about weight loss, it can be a great way to target certain "trouble spots" when you drop the extra pounds. Quickly calculate your body mass index (BMI) here.
Who Needs It?
CoolSculpting is designed for men and women who have smaller areas of fat that they want removed, but do not have time or are not ideal candidates for liposuction in Louisiana. CoolSculpting is effective at treating the flanks, love handles, and "bra bulge," as well as "pouches" on the stomach. Candidates should be healthy and within 10 to 15 pounds of their ideal weight.
Your CoolSculpting Treatment
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure, which means that no incisions and no anesthesia are needed. When you arrive for your treatment, you will be able to relax while the cooling device is pressed against the treatment area, targeting the fat cells that you want to dissolve while avoiding damage to the surrounding skin. After the tissue has been cooled for a carefully calculated period of time, the targeted fat cells begin to break down. The procedure is so comfortable that many patients use the treatment time to listen to music, read, or relax watching a 55" flat screen in their treatment room. The session typically lasts less than an hour, and most patients can return to and enjoy their regular routine soon after the procedure, even if that means engaging in strenuous exercise.
In about 3 days, as the fat cells begin to respond, some patients experience mild soreness. Any mild redness or minimal bruising should be gone within a few days.
After the treatment, the body's natural cleansing processes begin to remove the damaged fat cells, resulting in safe, gradual fat reduction. Patients typically enjoy the toned, slimmer results 3 weeks after their treatment, achieving the contoured body they wanted within 2 to 3 months. Although the results will not be as dramatic as our world-renowned SAFELipo Louisiana liposuction procedures, the average fat reduction is 25%.
