Liposuction alternative: Zeltiq CoolSculpting


By Dr. Nasrin Mani

Liposuction alternative: Zeltiq CoolSculptingWith the holiday season behind us, it’s time to get rid of unwanted fat. If you’re like the many Americans who want to lose weight this year, know that you’re in good company. Recent polls show that weight loss is the number one New Year’s resolution for 2013.

In theory, when it comes to losing weight, it shouldn’t be all that difficult. We all know that fewer calories and more exercise can give us the body of our dreams. Sounds simple, right? Even though weight loss seems easy enough, it’s no wonder so many men and women struggle to lose unwanted fat. That’s because weight loss, in very simple terms, is difficult to achieve for many reasons. And as for our New Year’s resolutions to shed unwanted pounds, studies show people fail by self-sabotage and low levels of perseverance.

Of course, there are some people who are successful in their pursuit of a leaner, tighter body. Exercise, eating right and drinking lots of water are just some of the ways people can lose weight successfully. But even then – deposits of unwanted fat in the midsection, buttocks and thighs can disparage our efforts of looking our very best.

There is a brighter side.

Enter Zeltiq – a liposuction alternative that works to remove stubborn fat from targeted areas of the body. In harmony with proper exercise and a good diet, Zeltiq – also known as CoolSculpting – is an effective liposuction alternative that removes fat from areas of the body that don’t seem to respond to exercise or diet.

CoolScultping works by removing targeted areas of fat without invasive, traditional liposuction. It does not require surgery, incisions or anesthesia. It removes fat by vacuum pressure, pulling targeted areas of skin between two cooling plates. A drop in temperature freezes fat cells, thereby causing a phenomenal act of crystallization called cryolipolysis. The breakdown of fat cells occurs over the course of 2 to 4 months, resulting in less fat and a more toned, beautiful shape.
