If you're interested in body contouring, it's important to look at all the options and choose the sculpting solution that's right for you. When they want dramatic results, many people choose a tummy tuck or liposuction in the Baltimore area at Columbia Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. However, sometimes a subtle change is all that's needed. That's where CoolSculpting comes in. This innovative, non-invasive treatment destroys fat cells in targeted areas without incisions, without the need for anesthetic and without the downtime that follows surgical procedures.
With CoolSculpting, Baltimore men and women can choose to target specific areas of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise, such as bulges on the flanks, hips, tummy or back. FDA-cleared CoolSculpting reduces the fat in the selected area using a controlled cooling technology.
A healthy diet and fitness plan are great, but they can only do so much. Your genes, life changes such as pregnancy, and weight fluctuations all influence your fat cells. If you want to slim down those love handles or other trouble spots around your midsection, consider CoolSculpting at Maryland's Columbia Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

During your consultation, Dr. Chang will evaluate your body and discuss your goals to determine which areas to target during your CoolSculpting procedure. In contrast to liposuction or a tummy tuck in Baltimore, CoolSculpting requires no anesthesia or incisions. You can relax and read a book or listen to music during your treatment.
Using a specially designed device that draws up the targeted fat tissue between 2 cooling panels, CoolSculpting freezes the fat cells through a process called Cryolipolysis™. Most patients experience little or no discomfort during the treatment, which typically takes one hour per region targeted.
No recovery or downtime is typically needed; patients are free to head to the gym right after a CoolSculpting procedure. You may experience mild swelling or soreness after your treatment, but it usually is gone within a few days.
During the weeks that follow treatment, the body gradually flushes away the damaged fat cells through its natural metabolic processes. While experiences vary, results typically become noticeable after about a month as bulges look smoother and slimmer. In about 3 to 4 months, the full benefits are usually reached.
To maintain your slimmer contours, it's important to continue with a sensible diet and exercise program.
