Sometimes, eating right, hitting the gym, and maintaining a healthy weight just doesn’t feel like enough. Millions of women still have stubborn areas of excess fat on their body that they just can’t seem to get rid of.

For a long time, the best option to remove extra, unwanted fat was to have an invasive liposuction procedure — involving a lengthy recovery period and significant stress. With CoolSculpting, Savannah River Plastic Surgery has changed all of that: now, there’s a non-invasive way to get rid of unwanted fat on your legs, arms, or midsection. A treatment that freezes the fat and destroys fat cells, CoolSculpting has been a revelation in plastic surgery. Treating each particular area takes approximately an hour, and you’ll be awake and alert, so feel free to bring a laptop, tablet, or book along!

CoolSculpting involves a device that suctions onto the target area and freezes it. At first, it may feel a bit uncomfortable, but usually any feelings of discomfort wear off around 10 minutes into the treatment. Afterward, you may feel some soreness in the treated area for a few days, and the area may appear red or swollen — however, in most cases, people are able to get right back to their normal lives immediately.

Here are some things that are unique to Savannah River:

  • Dual Sculpting is also available for areas that may be treated at the same time — cutting your treatment time in half.
  • All of our CoolSculpting is performed by a Registered Nurse who was the first nurse to become certified in our area by CoolSculpting University.

One thing to note: CoolSculpting results take time! You’ll need to give your body time to flush out the dead fat cells, which can take 3-6 months. And, as always, it’s up to you to keep up the results — fat that was destroyed by CoolSculpting won’t come back, but eating high-calorie foods and halting exercise can cause remaining fat cells to expand. However, if you work to keep the fat off, then you’re sure to be satisfied by the results of CoolSculpting.
