coolsculpting patientSummer is the perfect time to refresh your overall appearance. These warm months are chalk full of fun outdoor activities like boating and picnics, and you probably want to wear shorts and tanks to match the season’s heat.

If you feel unsure about the way that you look or you’re feeling less than confident rocking that bikini, you may decide to hide in baggy clothes or worse—completely skip out on all the warm-weather fun that summer has to offer.

At Lickstein Plastic Surgeon, we offer an easy way to tackle those stubborn fat bulges and improve your self-image once and for all with CoolSculpting.

How CoolSculpting Works

If you have been searching for a way to permanently erase unwanted body fat without undergoing an invasive procedure, CoolSculpting just may be your perfect solution. This procedure is FDA-approved and works by using a cooling technology called Cryolipolysis to freeze and eliminate fat cells.

CoolSculpting is a great alternative to those looking for a less-invasive alternative to liposuction or tummy tuck. Because no actual surgery is involved, this procedure takes place in office and is popular with both men and women alike.

Unlike more invasive surgeries, CoolSculpting does not damage any of the surrounding tissue and only targets the fat cells. While your session will be quick and you may notice some immediate improvement, the next couple months is when the real magic happens. You can expect to see more dramatic results as your body naturally disposes of the damaged fat cells in the months following the procedure.

Whether you are looking to rid unsightly fat on your chin, stomach, back, arms or thighs, consider a CoolSculpting treatment with the knowledgeable and compassionate Dr. Lickstein.

When you come in for a consultation, you and Dr. Lickstein will discuss the areas that require treatment and come up with a plan to address your concerns. Body fat can be a good thing in certain areas and actually enhance your overall frame. But if you have fat bulges that are awkward and more noticeable in certain areas, your self-confidence can begin to dip.

If this sounds like you, talk with Dr. Lickstein about which fatty regions you would like to see eliminated. He will take the time to thoroughly explain the entire procedure, including what happens once you leave our office. We encourage you to come to us with questions and concerns, as we want to help make your CoolSculpting experience as easy and beneficial as possible.

Is CoolSculpting Right For You?

Because this procedure is nonsurgical and offers easy results, it’s great for people of all walks of life. It’s important to note, though, that you should already be in decent physical shape.

CoolSculpting is most beneficial for those who already eat healthy and practice a healthy lifestyle, but need an extra push to get past a plateau. You are an ideal candidate if you are within 25 pounds of your healthy weight range and are seeking a modest change.

Treatments in our office can be done as quickly as 35 minutes, so many of our patients fit it into their lunch break from work. You are free to pass the time by reading a book or listening to your favorite tunes.
