Almost everyone has a stubborn problem spot or two on the body. Wouldn’t it be great if you could melt those areas of unwanted fat away? Now you can do just that with the help of Coolsculpting treatments at Burlington Plastic Surgery by Dr. Jessica Shih in Burlington, Ontario. This amazing treatment system can slim and contour your body without the need for surgery.

What Is Coolsculpting?

Coolsculpting is a body contouring treatment that destroys fat cells by chilling them to death. It’s a great way of getting rid of small problem spots and improving the patient’s overall physique. Best of all, this treatment is non-invasive and won’t require you to set aside any time for recovery. This approach makes it easy to improve the look and shape of your body.

During your appointments, the Coolsculpting applicator will rest against your skin and direct cool temperatures toward the unwanted fat. The temperature won’t get low enough to harm your skin, but it will be enough to destroy the fat cells, which will flush naturally from your body over the next few weeks. This treatment can get rid of up to 25 percent of targeted fat!

What Problem Spots Can This Help With?

This treatment system can be used all over the body, from the legs and hips to the arms and abdomen. Love handles, muffin tops and even double chins can all be addressed with Coolsculpting.

How Soon Will I See Results?

It can take some time for the body to dispose of those destroyed fat cells, so your results will develop gradually. During the first three or four weeks after your session, you’ll notice changes in your body, and your results should be fully developed within three months. The slow improvement in your body after your sessions means you’ll never look as though you went and had a cosmetic treatment performed.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

The number of treatments you’ll need will depend on which problem spots you’re having addressed and how much of a fat reduction you’re looking to achieve. For most patients, two or three sessions are necessary. The appointments should be scheduled at least six weeks apart.

Who Is This Right For?

You've Got Frustrating Problem Spots

This treatment is ideal for male and female patients who are in pretty good shape, but who are struggling with stubborn fat that has resisted diet and exercise. Coolsculpting allows you to precisely target those spots and get rid of them, improving your overall silhouette in the process.

Your Fat Is Pinchable

In order for this treatment to be successful, you need to have enough fat for it to work on. It helps if the fat in your problem area is enough to pinch.

You Can Commit to a Healthy Lifestyle

Committing to a long-term healthy lifestyle is important for a couple of reasons. First, Coolsculpting can help you contour your body, but it won’t help you lose a lot of weight. The patients who see the best results are already leading healthy, active lives and are not far over their goal weight, they just need a little help with difficult problem spots.

Second, this treatment permanently gets rid of unwanted fat in the target area, but it won’t prevent you from gaining weight elsewhere down the road. If you want to keep your figure in shape long-term, you’ll need to have healthy habits.

You're Healthy

There aren’t very many medical limitations associated with this treatment, but it helps if you’re in good general health and don’t have a defibrillator, a  pacemaker, or a bleeding disorder. Patients should also not be pregnant.

Why Should I Consider This Treatment?

It's Convenient

One of the big advantages of this treatment is the fact that it is non-surgical and non-invasive. If you want to shape up your body without a lot of fuss and downtime, Coolsculpting is the perfect solution. Most treatments can be fit into your lunch hour, and you’ll be able to return immediately to your regular schedule afterward.

It's Customizable

The versatility of the Coolsculpting system allows us to design a custom treatment plan for each patient we work with. Some patients want to significantly slim their thighs. Others want a modest reduction in the belly area. Still, others want multiple areas addressed at once. Whatever your concern is, we can design a treatment plan just for you.

It Will Give You a Figure You Can Be Proud of

This treatment system can help you slim down the problem spots you’ve been struggling with and finally achieve the silhouette you’ve been working toward. Once you’ve undergone this treatment, you’ll feel great about the way you look, and you’ll experience new confidence in your body.
