Coolsculpting is the perfect, safe and effective FDA approved procedure to help these soldiers with their careers, not just for cosmetic reasons.

Beleza Medspa has initiated a new program to assist active duty soldiers with satisfying Army body fat composition regulations. This is the first time that Coolsculpting is being used for for more than just cosmetic purposes. Soldiers are normally screened at least every six months to ensure they meet the prescribed body-fat standard, measured by the circumference-based tape method. The tape-test is used when soldiers exceed weight standards. The tape-test measures the neck and waist in males to determine a body fat percentage.

“The tape test is of great concern for many soldiers as it can affect their careers including promotions and retention” states Dr. Lawrence Broder MD, owner of Beleza Medsp, Austin TX. “Army weight standards have been out of date for many years and otherwise healthy, fit soldiers are being hurt by these standards” he adds. “Coolsculpting offers a way to reduce the size of fatty areas in a few months that can lead to positive outcomes on the tape test”, “as a former active duty soldier I know the anxiety that these tape tests can cause” Dr. Broder states.

Coolsculpting is a non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. The procedure requires no anesthesia, needles or downtime. During the painless one-hour procedure, patients can watch TV, listen to music or check email. At the conclusion of the procedure, the patient is free to resume normal activities.

“Coolsculpting is the perfect, safe and effective FDA approved procedure to help these soldiers with their careers, not just for cosmetic reasons”, Dr. Broder adds. “It can treat abdomens and love handles to take inches off waists without affecting their readiness” he states, “The goal is to assist healthy soldiers with meeting outdated and inaccurate standards”.

Beleza Medspa Killeen also offers DualSculpting, which allows twice the amount of Coolsculpting to be performed in half the time. Beleza will also help to reduce the coolsculpting cost by offering discounts to active duty soldiers. Beleza Medspa offers a full suite of weight control programs like HCG Diet and Ideal Protein as well as body sculpting with Smartlipo Laser Liposuction.

Beleza Medspa was founded in 2007 and has offices in Austin, Round Rock, Cedar Park and Killeen Texas. Beleza Medspa is one of the largest providers of Botox, Juvederm and Smartlipo Laser liposuction in Texas and the U.S. Beleza Medspa’s office in Killeen Texas is located minutes from Fort Hood front gate, the largest U.S. Army base in the United States.
