Expert Body Shaping in Chicago
If you have been troubled by stubborn fat areas on your body that do not seem to respond to continued exercise, Dr. Rajendra Shah and Dr. Samir Shah may now have the answer you have been searching for – a non-surgical procedure – CoolSculpting®.
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is the world’s #1 non-invasive method to contour your body by freezing unwanted fat cells. CoolSculpting® can help you to achieve your body shaping goals with no downtime.
How does CoolSculpting® Work?
The doctors at A New You Plastic Surgery and Laser Center in Oak Lawn and Orland Park, IL use a special machine that delivers controlled cooling to the targeted fat cells beneath the skin. The fat cells are crystallized (frozen) and are eliminated so you will have fewer fat cells in the treated areas. After a Coolsculpting® procedure, your weight may be the same but you will have a more sculpted physique.
What can I expect during my treatment?
During your treatment, a gel pad and applicator are applied to the targeted area. You will feel a slight suction and cooling. Most of our patients feel numb in about nine to ten minutes. You will be able to relax, read a book or even take a nap during the procedure. A two minute massage is then performed on the area to further break up the crystallized cells and help with the elimination process.
What can I expect after my treatment?
Slight swelling and tenderness may occur immediately after the treatment, but most patients return to their normal activities. Results can be seen as early as three weeks after your treatment, but the most dramatic changes will be seen after one to three months. We will schedule a follow-up appointment to evaluate your results, take photos, and answer any questions.
What are the expected results of CoolSculpting®?
We have seen up to a 25% reduction in fat cells with CoolSculpting®. In the weeks after the procedure has been performed, your body processes the treated fat cells naturally. Maximum results are seen three weeks to a month after the CoolSculpting® procedure.
How long does the CoolSculpting® procedure take?
Ordinarily the procedure takes one to two hours. However, during your personalized consultation with Dr. Rajendra Shah or Dr. Samir Shah they will be able to determine the length of the procedure for you to achieve your desired goal.
What are the advantages of CoolSculpting®?
- Average fat reduction of around 20% – 25% for suitable candidates
- No surgeon’s knife
- No anesthesia required
- No discomfort
- No downtime
- No scarring
How long do I need to recuperate after the procedure?
No time at all! You are able to go back to work or your other routine activities immediately after the procedure.
Who are good candidates for CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® treats visceral fat (pinchable fat). If you have stubborn fat on the belly, thighs, love handles, and even excess fat under the chin, you could be a candidate for CoolSculpting®. It’s always best to set up a consultation with Dr. Rajendra Shah and Dr. Samir Shah to determine if CoolSculpting® is the answer for you!
