Hi, I’m Dr. Frank Lista, and welcome to exam
room one here at The Plastic Surgery Clinic. And I want to talk to you today about this
exciting new technology right here at The Plastic Surgery Clinic and it’s called CoolSculpting.
CoolSculpting uses a principle called cryolipolysis – that’s fat freezing – and it literally freezes
fat to decrease fat in certain areas of your body. It’s not for people who are overweight
but for people who like their weight but have fat just little areas that they’d like to
get rid of. The technology works on the principle that fat freezes at a different temperature
than water, so we apply this cooling head or a similar head like this to an area of
your body where you have a little fat bulge that you don’t like. And fat freezes at 3
degrees celsius but water freezes at zero, so it doesn’t hurt the skin because it’s not
cold enough to freeze the skin which is mostly water. But it is cold enough to freeze your
fat cells. So it’s super simple, we apply the applicator head to the area, it puts a
little bit of suction on the skin and then literally freezes the fat cells. And it’s
amazing! At the end of the treatment there’s no downtime, there’s no redness. It takes
about an hour, it’s not very expensive, it costs about $750 per area. And your fat cells
are frozen, they die, and then your body just eliminates them the way that it would eliminate
any fat that it finds in the body. So what’s incredible about it is that it’s not surgery,
it only takes about an hour, it’s very inexpensive, and it gets rid of fat in localized areas.
I have to tell you the truth, I haven’t seen so much excitement here in the clinic in ages.
All the staff is volunteering to have it done, which you know means that it really works.
And it’s generating a huge amount of excitement here at the clinic with our staff and with
our patients who finally can get rid of stubborn little fat areas without surgery. So you should
call! to come in and see us, there’s no fee for an appointment or a consultation and meet
me or one of my really skilled nurses who can tell you all about it and whether or not
you’re a candidate. Patients love this because it gets rid of fat without any surgery and
without any downtime. Thanks for visiting, visit us at www.theplasticsurgeryclinic.com
