Is cool sculpting in Miami right for you?
If you are tired of having to stare in the mirror each and every day, trying to disguise the extra fat that hangs around your midsection, it is time for you to do something about it and you should begin considering cool sculpting in Miami. You may have tried countless diets and exercises with no results. Thanks to recent advancements in medical science, there is a way you can get rid of that humiliating muffin top.
Through the process of cool sculpting, the days of you having love handles are long gone. If you are not a fan of plastic surgery and ready to get rid of your love handles and muffin top, don’t despair. There is a revolutionary treatment called cool sculpting that can help you get the results you want without surgery. Cool sculpting in Miami is a noninvasive medical procedure that is done by a board certified plastic surgeon. It targets problem fat areas and gets rid of unwanted fat tissue, without causing any damage to any other surrounding tissues. The way it works is by cooling the target area of cells to a temperature that is just above freezing, whereupon the fat starts to turn to a solid state. This causes a biological response that is called apoptosis, which stimulates the fat cells to become smaller. So when you are ready to get your beach body again, contact our staff to learn more about the procedure for cool sculpting in Miami.
Who is the right candidate to have cool sculpting before and after in Miami?
The ideal individual to have a cool sculpting before and after in Miami is within 20-30 pounds of their ideal body weight, and are maintaining or in the process of losing weight. This is because cool sculpting does not suck the fat out or cause weight loss. It simply destroys fat cells and your body needs to metabolize the fat or it will just get stored somewhere else. The area to be treated is a “fat bulge” or something you could grasp with hand and squeeze. This is because the machine uses suction to pull on the fat and put it between two cooling plates. Examples would be the lower abdomen bulge or the “love handles”. If you pinch more than a couple of inches, it may be too thick to fit in the machine, and it may be best to lose weight first.
The procedure has been performed hundreds of thousands of times, with an extremely high level of safety compared to other fat reduction methods. Some common side effects can include:
- Temporary numbness
- Mild soreness
- Mild bruising
Most people say they feel essentially nothing after the procedure, but these symptoms happen, are mild and don’t require medication or time off work or activities. There are some rare side effects. Cool sculpting is supposed to be virtually painless, but occasionally, some people experience pain that may require pain pills. It seems it is about one out of 100 people that experience this, so not that often, but still can occur. If we compare this to liposuction, about 100 out of 100 people would experience pain, so this rare side effect is accepted. The numbness can last longer than a week or so in some patients.

Should you choose cool sculpting in Miami over liposuction?
Choosing cool sculpting in Miami over liposuction is a personal choice, not really a true medical decision. There are millions of people who have fat bulges that they’d like to get rid of, but only a small percentage (maybe 5-10%) of those people would consider surgery. This is the first ever FDA approved device that works for the other 90% of people. If you are interested in liposuction, and understand the risks, downtime and benefits (liposuction is safe and effective in the proper hands, but is really a totally different commitment) that is your best option. Maybe you do not want to go through with liposuction due to the following:
- After surgery downtime
- Having to wear compression garments
- Having to take time off work
- Facing swelling and at least temporary disfigurement
If this sounds like you, than the procedure for cool sculpting in Miami is right for you. It is permanent and you typically do not grow new fat cells as an adult, and the fat cells are destroyed. Again, this is not a miracle, the cool sculpt procedure destroys bulges of fat, and is not a solution to weight gain. It can be repeated. We are typically seeing 20 to 25 percent of shrinkage after a single treatment. The results are finished after about 2 to 3 months, so that is when repeat treatment is usually considered for additional benefit. This is a no downtime procedure in the vast majority of people. In the side effects discussion, we talked about the fact that infrequently there can be pain requiring pain pills, or bruising, but that is uncommon. Typically, no one will be able to tell that you took advantage of our cool sculpting in Miami but they will be able to notice gradual reduction of fat in the area treated.
Past and present information about cool sculpting in Miami?
The first cryolipolysis (cool sculpting in Miami) device was approved in 2010. However, the popularity of the procedure has grown dramatically over the past couple of years with most treatments being focused on the following parts of the body:
- Lower abdomen
- Upper abdomen
- Left or right flank
- Inner thigh
- Back and outer thigh
During a cool sculpting session, a molded cup is placed over the stomach, love handles or other fleshy accessible area and heavy-duty suction pulls the fat bulge inside cool sculpting paddles where it is chilled. Some of the fat cells in the cooled area are destroyed and ultimately disposed of by the liver. As with the ultrasound devices, there is little risk of skin injury and no change in blood levels of fats. The number of treatments needed vary, according to the amount of excess fat and the skill of the practitioner. The best patients for cool sculpting have fat that can be pinched and drawn into the cool sculpting paddles. Once the fat is secured inside the cool sculpting machine, it is cooled down to the point where it is broken down. A session takes less than an hour and no anesthesia is needed. Once an area has been treated the next area can be started. Results take from two to four months to appear and some people experienced the following side effects for a few days after the procedure:
- Mild pain
You can generally expect a 20 percent fat reduction but this may take a number of treatments. To find out if cool sculpting in Miami is right for you, contact us today!
