Tampa, FL (Vocus) October 1, 2010
Dr. Jeffrey A. Hunt and the Vein and Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay are now the first cosmetic surgery practice to offer the recently FDA-approved, fat reduction and removal procedure Zeltiq CoolSculpting™ in Tampa Bay. The non-invasive treatment uses patented cooling technology to eliminate fat cells gradually without affecting the surrounding skin and tissue, providing a less-invasive option to other plastic surgery procedures, such as liposuction in Tampa Bay. Studies show an average 20-25% reduction in fat with long-term results as treated fat cells are eliminated through this cryolipolysis or fat-freezing process.
As the first cosmetic surgery practice to offer this state-of-the-art method of fat reduction in Tampa Bay, Dr. Hunt and the aesthetic enhancement professionals at the Vein and Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay say CoolSculpting™ from Zeltiq provides a number of benefits for patients looking for a way to eliminate isolated pockets of fat that stick around in spite of maintaining a healthy, fit lifestyle. In comparison to traditional liposuction procedure at the Vein & Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay, Dr. Hunt says CoolSculpting™ allows him to non-invasively target and eliminate stubborn fat pockets around the abdomen, love handles and back – areas that are typically resistant to diet and exercise.
Since 1992, Dr. Hunt, Medical Director of the Vein & Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay, says he has had the privilege of providing patients with the latest and safest treatments to help them feel and look their best. By offering the latest innovation in fat removal in Tampa Bay with the CoolSculpting™ by Zeltiq method, Dr. Hunt says he can provide his patients with the same safe, convenient results without the need for recovery time often associated with more extensive cosmetic procedures. As a painless, non-surgical fat reduction treatment, CoolSculpting™ does not require anesthesia or pain medication, and creates effective results for most patients’ goals within a single office visit.
Dr. Hunt says the overall effectiveness, coupled with the non-invasive capabilities allow his patients to return to their daily routines with more confidence and limited interruption. He says CoolSculpting™ is designed for patients who are relatively physically fit but have certain areas of the body affected by extra fat they would like to eliminate. Dr. Hunt says liposuction can more effectively address larger areas of excess fat; however, the CoolSculpting™ method can work wonders for smaller areas and help patients who are looking for a more refined contour.
