San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 05, 2012
Pousti Plastic Surgery is pleased and excited to announce the practice’s adoption of the innovative San Diego CoolSculpting fat removal technology for patients desiring fat removal without the cost and recovery associated with traditional liposuction. Pousti Plastic Surgery is one of the first medical and cosmetic surgery practices in the Southern California region to offer this breakthrough in non-invasive fat reduction.
CoolSculpting is an exciting and innovative new approach to non-invasive fat reduction. “This technology has demonstrated significant positive results in clinical studies for removing unwanted body fat without the possible risks and recovery of invasive procedures,” said San Diego Plastic Surgeon Dr. Tom Pousti of Pousti Plastic Surgery. “This fat-reducing technology is particularly effective in resistant localized areas of the body such as back fat, love handles, and isolated belly fat. The CoolSculpting procedure is extremely comfortable and patients are very satisfied with the process and results.”
Cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the CoolSculpting technology works by gently cooling unwanted fat cells in the body, inducing a natural and controlled elimination of fat cells. CoolSculpting is based on scientific discovery from the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. The research proved through vast research that fat cells are more susceptible to cold and are selectively, painlessly, and permanently destroyed.
Several weeks after the procedure, cooled fat cells begin a process called apoptosis and start to shrink and disappear. The patient begins to naturally and gradually eliminate cooled fat cells, thereby reducing the thickness of the fat layer in targeted areas of the body.
Unlike other harsh fat reduction or removal procedures, CoolSculpting requires no needles, surgery, or recovery periods. During the procedure, a non-invasive applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to the treatment area. Treatments last between one and two hours, and patients have the option for additional treatments for more substantial effects if desired. Each CoolSculpting San Diego procedure results in an undeniable reduction of fat in the treatment area, and patients see results as early as three weeks following treatment. The most dramatic results occur over a period of between two and four months in most patients.
