Dr. Stewart explains what makes patients good candidates for CoolSculpting®
January 4, 2014 (Newswire.com) - Today, very few treatments are as in-demand as CoolSculpting®. A non-invasive approach for correcting bothersome, unwanted body fat, more and more patients are exploring this procedure to improve their appearance.
Dr. Roger H. Stewart, of the Skin Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, says that CoolSculpting® is a great way for patients to combat the appearance of flabby love handles of muffin tops. "The feedback from my patients on CoolSculpting has been extremely positive," Dr. Stewart says, "More and more patients are requesting the procedure to get rid of stubborn belly fat, love handles, or muffin tops."
In spite of CoolSculpting's popularity, Dr. Stewart says the procedure is not for everyone. "CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure that eliminates body fat using patented cooling technology," says Dr. Stewart, "It is not a weight-loss procedure for people who are overweight. It is also not an ideal procedure for a patient who is pregnant, or has a serious health condition that causes chronic pain."
Dr. Stewart says that the best candidates for CoolSculpting are patients trying to reduce stubborn body fat. "The best candidates for CoolSculpting are healthy individuals looking for a non-invasive way of removing stubborn body fat that they have not been able to get rid, even with regular diet and exercise," Dr. Stewart explains. Dr, Stewart also stresses that patients who choose CoolSculpting should have realistic expectations about what the procedure can do for them.
"CoolSculpting is also great for patients who busy, active lifestyles," Dr. Stewart adds, "The procedure involves using two cooling panels, which will 'freeze' away unwanted fat within the selected areas of the body. A typical treatment normally lasts one to three hours, and patients are usually able to return to their normal activities immediately, with little downtime. Results will usually take a few weeks to appear completely."
"CoolSculpting is an extremely effective and versatile treatment," Dr. Stewart concludes, "It is quite effective in treating various areas of the body, and can help make a huge difference in a patient's self-confidence. I have seen great results in my own patients who have undergone CoolSculpting, and I encourage anyone interested in the treatment to schedule an appointment today."
