For people considering a body contouring procedure, or those who just want to eliminate stubborn areas of fat, there are more treatment options available than ever before. As a Las Vegas plastic surgeon, I know it’s important to ensure that my patients are aware of these options and that I can help them determine which procedure will best fit their body and goals.
CoolSculpting® by ZELTIQ
If you are healthy, close to your ideal weight, and want to remove fat from the abdomen, back, or flanks, CoolSculpting by ZELTIQ may be the ideal solution. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical liposuction alternative that can reduce the fat layer by an average of 20%.
This is the latest and most cutting-edge liposuction technology available. Not all Smartlipo machines are created equal–the older versions have only 1 or 2 lasers with less energy. Smartlipo TriPlex combines 3 lasers, which melt fat, tighten skin, and decrease bruising and swelling.
Liposuction eliminates unwanted fat in specific areas of the body, including abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks, and neck. Smartlipo may be a more viable option for those who want to improve skin tone and remove pockets of fat in one procedure.
Clients with loose abdominal skin and fat deposits that do not go away with diet and exercise benefit the most from this procedure. It may be used in conjunction with liposuction to provide more defined contouring. This procedure is good for:
- Removing loose skin and stretch marks after significant weight loss or pregnancy
- Eliminating excess abdominal fat
- Repairing weak, stretched abdominal muscles after pregnancy
- Flattening a tummy bulge
