When your fat accumulates in certain areas despite your best efforts to get rid of it through diet and exercise, you may need a new solution. When you choose Dr. Joseph Banis, you are choosing an experienced professional who can help you choose the right treatment for you. Many times we find that our clients who are struggling with this concern are a good fit for CoolSculpting®, a unique treatment that uses very cold temperatures to freeze away fat.

You may have unwanted body fat for a variety of reasons. You may have lost a large amount of weight but are still dealing with some pockets of stubborn fat that will not respond well to exercise or cutting calories. You may have always been trim and toned until you went through menopause when you saw your body change with fat deposited in new areas. Others see unwanted fat appear after they go through pregnancy and childbirth.

Whatever your reason may be for having unwanted fat, we can help you target it with CoolSculpting®. CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss technique, however, and you should already be at or close to your goal weight before the treatment. Although you may not see a change on the scale, you will be able to see a noticeable change when you look at yourself in the mirror.

During your CoolSculpting® treatment, you will be awake the entire time. You do not need any anesthesia because the very cold temperatures from the treatment device naturally numb your skin. Within the first 10 minutes of the treatment, your skin will become numb, and you will be able to relax comfortably for the rest of the treatment time. Some clients bring a book or some work to do while others choose to take a short nap. The treatment does not last very long, which makes it easy to schedule in your busy day. In addition, there is no downtime after CoolSculpting® treatments. You may notice that your skin is a bit tender and red, but this should only last for a short time after your treatment.

We can use CoolSculpting® on many of your most problematic areas. At Joseph Banis, MD Plastic Surgery Medical Skin Care we see CoolSculpting® work best on inner/outer thighs, arms, flanks (“love handles”), abdomen, bra fat, and double chin. This treatment can give you back your confidence and help you feel better about going out in public.
