CoolSculpting® is a revolutionary alternative to liposuction and other methods of surgical fat removal that can be used to significantly improve the shape and tone of your body. Cleared by the FDA as a non-surgical body contouring option, CoolSculpting eliminates stubborn fat cells by freezing them to a temperature that triggers their natural death. Because the lipids in fat crystallize faster than other cells, CoolSculpting is able to destroy fatty deposits without damaging nerves or surrounding tissue. This allows CoolSculpting to provide recovery-free body sculpting with results that last for a lifetime.
If you live in Grand Rapids or surrounding areas of Michigan and are interested in learning more about CoolSculpting, please contact the Centre for Plastic Surgery online or by calling (616) 454-1256 today to schedule your appointment with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons.
Working with Your Body’s Natural Fat Elimination Process
Unlike surgical treatments that remove fat through suction, CoolSculpting employs Cryolipolysis™ which is a patented method that uses carefully controlled cooling to reduce fat. This process does not harm the skin or other tissue and acts strictly on fat cells. Once the fat cells are treated, they are gradually eliminated through your body’s own metabolic processes, reducing the thickness of the fat layer.
Full results from CoolSculpting can take up to three months to be realized. During this time, you can work to enhance results by maintaining a well-balanced diet and engaging in mild to moderate forms of exercise. Adopting good habits while waiting for the CoolSculpting process to complete can help set the tone for a healthier lifestyle that assists in maintaining your results. This can be discussed in greater detail during your CoolSculpting consultation at our Grand Rapids office.
Is CoolSculpting Right for Me?
CoolSculpting is ideal for patients who struggle with areas of stubborn fat deposits. With multiple applicator options we are able to treat a wide range of areas on the body, inlcuding smaller areas like chin and knees. The procedure is non-surgical, non-invasive, and comfortable. No anesthesia or pain medication is required. Patients can return immediately to their normal routine, even strenuous exercise. Because it is both non-surgical and non-invasive, issues that may prevent candidacy for a surgical procedure will not limit your ability to receive treatment. It's ideal for men and women who cannot take time to recover from a more involved body contouring option. Our technicians will evaluate your candidacy for CoolSculpting during your initial consultation to help you determine if it is the right procedure for your needs.
Experience the difference! Our team of technicians has trained with the creators of CoolSculpting both on and offsite through the exclusive CoolSculpting University. This extensive education assures you that we are able to bring you the best possible results. Enjoy your treatment in our relaxing facility while we bring you ease of mind through our attention to education, access to our board certified physicians, and first class patient care. For more information about CoolSculpting, please call us at (616) 454-1256 to schedule your consultation. We welcome patients from Lansing, Traverse City, and surrounding areas of Western Michigan.
