FDA-Approved CoolSculpting® Quickly Gets Rid of Fat

Share Article

Dr. Grant Stevens and Dr. Michelle Spring of Marina Plastic Surgery Associates now offer CoolSculpting® to help Los Angeles patients be free of unwanted fat without surgery.

CoolSculpting®, an FDA-approved noninvasive alternative to liposuction, is a welcome improvement over surgery, frustrating diets and endless sit-ups. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Grant Stevens has pioneered this technology, performing CoolSculpting on Los Angeles women and men who are close to their ideal body weight, eat a healthful diet and exercise regularly but cannot get rid of stubborn fat deposits.

"CoolSculpting is a breakthrough alternative to liposuction in Los Angeles for losing love handles, muffins tops and other stubborn fat areas," Dr. Stevens says. "I like this treatment so much that I have used it successfully on my own trouble spots. We are the only place in California with two Zeltiq® devices, so you can reduce two areas at the same time while you tweet, post on Facebook, read a book, talk on the phone or even nap."

Dr. Michelle Spring explains that the procedure is simple and effective and works by using a technique called Cryolipolysis™, which employs carefully controlled cooling to reduce fat deposits. After a patient is treated with CoolSculpting, the body will gradually eliminate fat cells through its own natural cleansing process. Results look natural, and surrounding tissue is not damaged.

"While procedures such as liposuction or a tummy tuck may be effective for some people, they aren't always appropriate for someone who is within 10 to 15 pounds of their desired weight," Dr. Spring says.

A CoolSculpting treatment usually lasts about one to two hours, and downtime after the procedure is minimal. Patients can resume normal activity, including vigorous exercise, immediately.

"With this quick, safe and effective procedure, my patients who do not have the time to recover from liposuction in Los Angeles can still enjoy attractive body contouring results," Dr. Stevens says. "As one of the first practices in the nation to offer this procedure, we have experience our patients can trust. We can provide beautiful results with CoolSculpting."
