CoolSculpting

coolsculpting before and after picturesAccumulation of unwanted fat deposits in certain areas of the body is a common problem for both women and men. CoolSculpting is a safe, outstanding, and sagacious non-invasive procedure to get rid of excess fat tissue for people who want to avoid plastic surgery.

During the initial consultation, the CoolSculpting expert will explain all about the procedure and inform the patient about how much fat they may expect to lose after the complete course of treatment. They will assess the patient’s current condition of fat pockets and their specific location and size in order to estimate the amount fat loss possible.

The Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, provides CoolSculpting to patients in Richmond, Virginia, and surrounding communities across the horizon in this part of the northeast.

Amount of Fat Loss

The treatment provider will focus on areas where stubborn fat tissue deposits are present, which are resistant to diet and exercise. The skin in the area should have a reasonable amount of elasticity in order to create desirable aesthetic outcomes.

Each patient will have a different amount of fat loss, depending on factors such as fat deposit location, the patient’s tendency to gain or lose fat, the extent of treatment performed, and the skill of the provider.

Unlike plastic surgery, the fat reduction will occur gradually with CoolSculpting. Most patients will typically achieve a fat loss in the range of 20 to 30 percent in the treated sites. Noticeable fat reduction may occur in a matter of weeks in some patients, but the majority of patients will be able to achieve the desired level of fat loss in about three months. Results are healthier and more natural looking due to gradual fat reduction with CoolSculpting.

Maximizing Fat Loss

The patient should not depend on CoolSculpting alone to achieve maximum fat loss. They should be conscious about maintaining body weight throughout the course of the treatment and afterwards. Body contouring results can be compromised if the patient gains weight while the treatment sessions are in progress.

Patients should know that Coolsculpting is not a weight loss procedure, and they should maintain a healthy weight with a balanced diet and regular exercise. A healthy lifestyle and a good fitness regimen will enable the patient to enjoy the results of CoolSculpting for an extended period of time.

Permanent Removal of Fat Cells

CoolSculpting is designed to freeze the fat cells and cause their permanent destruction. The frozen cells will be processed and removed from the body through the natural metabolic process, leaving behind a sculpted shape in the treated sites. Adults do not produce new fat cells, and the fat cells once eliminated will not come back. In other words, the fat loss with CoolSculpting will be permanent.

However, weight gain can still take place, which will cause the expansion of the remaining fat cells. Therefore, if the body weight increases, it will lead to an increase in the size of the remaining fat cells. Profound and focused plastic surgeons at the Virginia Institute receive patients from Richmond, Virginia, and nearby areas across the region.

Double Chin Reduction

For people who want to get rid of double chin without having to undergo plastic surgery, CoolSculpting and Kybella offer two promising non-surgical alternatives. Both these treatments were cleared by the FDA in 2015 specifically for the cosmetic reduction of submental fat or excess fat deposits underneath the chin.

Kybella, clinically called ATX-101, will involve a medication to be delivered directly to the affected tissue through multiple injections. CoolMini, on the other hand, is a unique hand-held cooling device from the makers of CoolSculpting to eliminate unwanted chin fat.

Both CoolMini and Kybella offer unique benefits and are aimed at improving chin contours without involving any significant discomfort or downtime. The Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, provides these double chin reduction procedures to patients in Richmond, Virginia, and surrounding locations across the landscape.

Kybella Injections

Kybella Before and After photoKybella has distinguished itself as the first and only injectable treatment approved by the FDA specifically for the reduction of fat tissue in the submental area. The safety and effectiveness of Kybella injections has been established through numerous clinical trials and research studies. This unique in-office procedure can be customized to meet the patient’s requirements in order to create a sculpted chin profile without plastic surgery.

Kybella has become the first and only injectable procedure specifically approved by the FDA for the reduction of submental fat. Extensive studies and clinical trials have demonstrated the safety and efficacy of Kybella. The injectable med spa treatment can be tailored to meet the unique aesthetic needs of a patient who desires a slimmer chin profile without surgery.

How does Kybella Work?

Kybella injectable procedure is based on deoxycholic acid, which is a biological substance in the body to support the absorption of excess fat. This active ingredient triggers the disintegration of targeted fat cells under the chin when it is delivered through injections. The fats are eventually reabsorbed in the body, revealing a slimmer chin contour. The patient may need up to six treatment sessions of about 20 minutes each.

CoolMini Treatment

Its unique cooling process will freeze the unwanted fat off, and eventually the disrupted fat cells will exit from the body in a natural metabolic process. Just one to two treatment sessions of CoolMini treatment, lasting about 45 minutes each, may help to reduce about 20 percent fat in the under-chin site.

In-Office Procedures

Focus on Submental Fat

While CoolSculpting has been used for years to enhance body contours for thousands of patients, most non-invasive procedures are not effective for difficult to access areas such as the submental fat pockets below the chin. This hurdle is now eliminated with the FDA clearance for CoolMini applicator, which has a size, shape and curvature ideally suited to treat stubborn fat deposits below the chin, which are creating a double chin appearance.

CoolMini procedure can be performed comfortably in-office, involving no anesthesia, and with little to no downtime.

Safety and Efficacy

CoolMini treatment is completely safe and non-invasive, and does not even involve any injections, medications, or special diets. The FDA cleared the CoolMini procedure following the results of a pivotal clinical trial that involved 60 men and women between the ages of 22 and 65 years.

Each of these subjects was given one to two treatments with CoolMini device in the submental region, below the chin. Each treatment was delivered six weeks apart. On average, the patients achieved a fat reduction of 20 percent during this trial. The patients reported little to no discomfort or downtime, and no significant adverse events were noted.

Permanent Fat Elimination

One of the key benefits with CoolMini double chin reduction procedure is that the targeted fat cells that are destroyed with its unique cooling process are gone for good. The patient can enjoy a sculpted, slimmer appearance of the chin and neck for a long time to come.

However, patients should note that CoolMini and CoolSculpting procedures are not a substitute for diet and exercise, and it is important to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle to prolong the aesthetic benefits of these treatments.

In-Office Procedure

The double chin fat reduction procedure with CoolMini by CoolSculpting is performed in-office. A single treatment session will last for about 45 minutes, while the patient relaxes in a comfortable office environment. Best outcomes are usually obtained after two to three treatments.

NKP-067-167x250Coolsculpting is a revolutionary new cosmetic procedure that allows people the chance to reshape their bodies and get rid of stubborn fat deposits without the risks of invasive surgery. After a one- or two-hour session where you are fully awake and resting comfortably enough to read or use a hand-held entertainment device, the procedure is complete.

Technically known as cryolipolysis, Coolsculpting relies on the concept that fat freezes at a higher temperature than surrounding tissue. Without making a single incision or the risks of anesthetics, the Coolsculpting freezes a localized area such as the belly or love handles, and over the course of three or four months, the dead fat cells are naturally removed by the body. You may see up to a 20% fat reduction in the treated areas.
