Marina Del Ray, CA (PRWEB) June 24, 2011
Marina Plastic Surgery Associates (http://www.marinaplasticsurgery.com/) is experiencing an increase in the number of people seeking CoolSculpting body contouring procedures. Dr. Grant Stevens, a Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon, attributes the rising popularity to its effectiveness in targeting specific areas of fat.
"CoolSculpting can be an excellent option to traditional liposuction," says Dr. Stevens. "It's ideal for men and women who are at or near their target weight but continue to experience fat deposits on their flanks and love handles."
CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling to reduce fat deposits. A non-surgical body contouring procedure, it is FDA approved for non-invasive fat layer reduction of the flanks and love handles. Your body's natural cleansing processes remove the damaged fat cells, resulting in safe, gradual fat reduction.
"Because the procedure requires no incisions, anesthesia, pain medication, or downtime, many of our Los Angeles plastic surgery patients choose CoolSculpting to achieve their cosmetic goals," Dr. Stevens notes. Those who undergo CoolSculpting typically enjoy the toned, slimmer results 3 weeks after their treatment. In general, most patients then achieve the contoured body they wanted within 2 months.
"Patients often experience no discomfort during their CoolSculpting procedure," adds Dr. Stevens. "They can even read a book or relax and listen to music. Although this method does not offer the more extensive fat loss available from traditional liposuction, it is a good alternative for those with smaller areas of fat."
Marina Plastic Surgery offers both surgical and non-surgical body-contouring procedures. The surgeons and staff are known for customizing each treatment plan to address the individual patient's concerns and desired outcome. As a Los Angeles plastic surgeon, Dr. Stevens says the busy lifestyles in the southern California area make non-surgical options such as CoolSculpting particularly popular.
