Even with diet and exercise, many people find it difficult to lose weight and attain the desired size and figure. Being overweight can result in medical issues, such as high blood pressure and diabetes. In addition, excess weight can result in a loss of self-confidence. CoolSculpting® performed by board-certified general surgeon Dr. Matthew St. Laurent of Northwest EndoSurgical could be the answer for the residents of League City, TX who have done all they can to lose weight and are still not seeing the results they desire.
What is CoolSculpting®?
Fat reduction and weight loss are not the same. When weight is lost, the fat cells in the body shrink, but the number of cells in the body remains the same. When any weight is gained, these fat cells become large again. CoolSculpting® safely and effectively cools the fat cells in the body. The targeted cells become crystallized and then die. The body then processes and flushes the fat over time. When fat cells are evacuated, they can no longer become larger. The result is a sculpted body that fits clothes better and projects increased confidence.
Benefits of CoolSculpting®
CoolSculpting® is FDA-cleared for fat cell removal. It is a non-surgical procedure that targets the fat cells without harming the tissue or skin. It is quick, painless, and most people resume normal activities immediately following a CoolSculpting® session. In addition, the procedure is long-lasting as the fat cells are flushed from the body.
How is CoolSculpting® Performed?
We will first determine a plan for each individual patient, including what areas should be targeted and how many sessions will be needed in order to get the desired results. Cryolipolysis, the medical treatment to target fat cells, is performed using the CoolSculpting® device. The cells are cooled to four degrees Celsius, which results in fat cell death. The fat is then flushed by the body, leaving the body more sculpted and lean.
