CoolSculpting has been on the scene since its FDA approval in 2010—shortly after, world-renowned Dr. Mehmet Oz did a story covering this incredible fat reduction procedure on his ultra popular, worldwide syndicated The Dr. Oz Show. The feature revealed details about this cutting-edge treatment with legitimate CoolSculpting before and after photos of patients and a live demonstration of this revolutionary body sculpting treatment—the first time a CoolSculpting session was ever shown on television.
As he looked at CoolSculpting before and after photos and shared them with the audience, Dr. Oz called this procedure a “game changer” in the battle against bulge and compared it to liposuction, which was previously believed to be the most effective body sculpting treatment available. Yet the differences set the two apart and point to the benefits of CoolSculpting, including the greater ease and minimal risk of this new procedure.
While both procedures target those stubborn pockets of fat that no amount of diet and exercise seem to budge, Dr. Oz recognized the difference between the two—while there are significant risks associated with liposuction, CoolSculpting is completely non-invasive and requires no downtime. Liposuction requires anesthesia and can result in severe swelling and bruising, while CoolSculpting is performed without any anesthesia, lasers, incisions or needles.
When it comes to downtime, CoolSculpting truly can be performed in an hour per treatment area and patients can get back to their normal activities immediately after the procedure. Just imagine taking a long lunch and jumpstarting your body contouring in those areas that bother you, such as “thunder thighs,” “bat wings,” back fat, belly fat and more. Patients do need to maintain a healthy lifestyle after undergoing the treatment, but they are so motivated by the results that it becomes much easier to follow a healthy diet and workout regimen.
