Cosmetic Surgery Associates of New York, a plastic surgery practice in New York, is now offering a non-surgical alternative to liposuction: CoolSculpting® by ZELTIQ™.
Harrison, New York (July 2011) – Cosmetic Surgery Associates of New York, a team of five specialists providing plastic surgery in New York as well as non-surgical treatments, recently added a new service to their extensive menu: CoolSculpting® by ZELTIQ™. This innovative technology is a non-surgical fat reduction method that works by cooling the targeted fat cells to the freezing point. The practice is excited to be offering additional body contouring options to their patients who are looking for ways to refine and contour their physique.
Dr. Joshua A. Greenwald states, “CoolSculpting is a non-surgical approach to body contouring, and in some cases, may be an alternative to liposuction in Westchester. This procedure is innovative in that it uses a cooling technique to get the fat sufficiently cold. Once the fat cells have reached the cooling point, they are excreted by the body’s natural cleansing process, leaving patients with noticeably smoother contours.”
CoolSculpting patients can see a fat reduction of about 20 to 25% in the targeted area, making the treatment effective. While liposuction can help to permanently remove relatively large pockets of excess fat, CoolSculpting does not require any anesthesia or incisions, making it an option for those who are either not candidates for liposuction or do not want that surgical procedure.
Dr. Samuel J. Beran enjoys using CoolSculpting on his patients, stating, “This is one of my favorite non-surgical procedures available today because of the beautiful results it can help my patients achieve. While two treatments are often necessary for substantial fat reduction, the treatment is not a substitute for living an active lifestyle and eating healthy. ”
Dr. Christian I. Guzman agrees, noting, “It is important to know that while CoolSculpting can provide a substantial reduction of fat in the selected area, the treatment should not be regarded as a technique for weight loss.”
Clarifying the benefits of CoolSculpting, Dr. Robert W. Bernard adds, “Rather than using CoolSculpting for weight loss, I like to think of it in terms of ‘inch loss.’ A patient’s actual weight may not decrease significantly, but the contouring benefits of CoolSculpting do occur. Patients often tell me that their clothes fit better and they love their slimmed-down appearance.”
While fat reduction is a specialty of some of the surgeons at Cosmetic Surgery Associates of New York, they also offer other body contouring, facial surgery, and breast enhancement such as breast augmentation. Westchester, Harrison, and Manhattan area women and men frequently turn to the surgeons for their cosmetic needs.
