CoolSculpting in Biloxi, MS
There is nothing worse that maintaining a healthy lifestyle and still having pockets of fat resistant to all our work. Michael Diaz, M.D., F.A.C.S., a board-certified plastic surgeon in Biloxi, MS, performs CoolSculpting® for residents in and around Southern Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama who want to reveal a more sculpted physique.
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is the only FDA-approved fat reduction treatment using controlled cooling to safely eliminate fat resistant to diet and exercise. This advanced treatment distributes controlled cooling to crystallize, or freeze, fat cells underneath the skin. When this happens, the body processes the fat over time and naturally eliminates the cells from the body. Over the next few weeks, the targeted areas look smoother and more sculpted. With CoolSculpting®, there is no discomfort at all as this is a non-invasive procedure.
The Best Candidates for CoolSculpting®
CoolSculpting® is ideal for anyone who works hard to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen but still has areas of their body holding onto pockets of fat. It is important to understand that CoolSculpting® is not a substitute for diet and exercise nor is it a way to lose weight. It is designed to be an alternative to liposuction.
Planning Your CoolSculpting® Treatment
If you are considering CoolSculpting®, we recommend you schedule a consultation so that Dr. Diaz can evaluate your area of concern and determine if CoolSculpting® is the best option to eliminate unwanted fat. Additionally, the cost of the treatments is reviewed so that if any planning financially is necessary, you know what the cost is and can make your arrangements.
Preparing for Your CoolSculpting® Treatment
There is no preparation for CoolSculpting®. During a consultation, Dr. Diaz works with you to create a plan to achieve your desired look.
The CoolSculpting® Treatment
CoolSculpting® targets and kills specific fat cells underneath the skin using cooling panels. The fat cells are frozen to the point that the body eliminates them. The treatment is so targeted that only fat cells are frozen without harming healthy skin cells.
Each plan is customized for each patient, so there is no set time for the length of each session. Most take about an hour to complete. For most patients, only one treatment is necessary to achieve the desired look. If several areas are targeted for treatment, we may require additional sessions.
After Your CoolSculpting® Treatment
Immediately following your CoolSculpting® treatment, you can go back to your normal daily activities. There is no recovery involved.
How Much Does CoolSculpting® Cost in Mississippi?
The cost of CoolSculpting® varies with each person as it is based on how many areas are being treated and whether you combine CoolSculpting® with other cosmetic procedures or treatments. We can discuss the cost of CoolSculpting® during your consultation along with our payment and financing options.
Getting Back to Normal Following CoolSculpting®
One of the benefits of CoolSculpting® is that there is no recovery or downtime which is why it is often recommended as an alternative to liposuction. Over the weeks following your treatment, the body eliminates the frozen fat cells, and the results become more visible. It may take up to three months to see the full effects of CoolSculpting®.
Your New Look
The results of CoolSculpting® reveal a more toned, defined appearance where the treatments took place. They are permanent; however, this does not mean that you are immune to weight gain. It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle to prevent weight gain and fat deposits in other areas of the body.
