Many patients think of liposuction as an invasive, expensive way to remove large areas of fat from the body to improve contours. While this is true, there are also several other concerns that patients have when they consider liposuction. This includes the risks associated with surgery and the downtime needed to recover. Dr. Gerald Bock and the staff at California Skin and Laser Center in Stockton work closely with patients to help them decide what is best for their specific needs. In many cases, a procedure known as CoolSculpting may be suggested as a safe, affordable alternative.
CoolSculpting is a special method of removing unwanted areas of fat from the body, but without incisions and cannulas sucking out the fat cells during the treatment. Instead, CoolSculpting works by freezing the fat cells underneath the skin and allowing the body to flush them out naturally over the course of time. Known as cryolipolysis, this treatment can assist in achieving a more pleasing shape without invasive surgery.
Cryolipolysis is safe, effective, and affordable. It provides gradual results that are noticeable and highly desirable for both men and women interested in treated specific areas of the body. It can be used on many areas including the arms, thighs, back fat, abdomen, and flanks. This method allows patients to achieve results without the downtime often associated with liposuction, which can put patients out of daily activities and work for many days, sometimes weeks for recovery. CoolSculpting eliminates recovery and healing times and many patients enjoy the benefit of maintaining their active lifestyle without interruption. Our doctor will discuss with patients what they can expect before, during, and after their CoolSculpting appointments.
