When the American FDA approved Coolsculpting in 2010, it initiated an enormous hype not only amongst patients, but also amongst medical practitioners. How does it work? Coolsculpting uses a very high yet precise freezing energy to selectively destroy fat cells without damaging the overlying skin. There is no surgery, no incisions, and no downtime.
“Coolsculpting is currently the only technology in fat removal without surgery that is taken seriously by physicians. No other non surgical fat removal technology has got a comparable track record with 20+ peer reviewed scientific publications proving its efficiency,” says Dr.Alexander Aslani, director of Cirumed Clinic and at the same time Head of the Plastic Surgery departments of both Hospital Quiron Malaga and Marbella.
Cirumed Clinic has gained fame both nationally as well as internationally for their very advanced approaches to minimally invasive liposculpting and fat transfer. The clinic sees hundreds of patients travelling to Marbella every year for this expertise, and Dr.Aslani regards Coolscultping as the ideal supplement to his clinic’s current armamentarium.
“Many of our patients want sophisticated solutions such as fat transfer and skin tightening to get cracking results. This can only be achieved with surgery. But we also have many patients who simply want removal of fat at a specific problem zone. For those, Coosculpting is a fantastic option,” so Dr. Aslani.
What happens during treatment?
Coolscultping works via specific applicators for the affected problem zone.
These are applied via a gel pad and freezing is effectuated via heat extraction.
There is nothing invasive. Patients can resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment, including exercise. In the weeks following treatment, the destroyed fat cells are eliminated by the body.
“Coolsculpting results get you as close to the outcome of surgical liposuction as you can possibly get,” says Dr. Aslani, who oversees more than one thousand Plastic Surgery procedures in the Department of Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery in Hospital Quiron in Malaga.
If you’re tired of stubborn fat in your midsection and liposuction is not for you, CoolSculpting® may be the right option. CoolSculpting has long been the number one fat removal without surgery in the U.S. and looks back at over 1 million treatments and around 200 Zeltiq machines spread across the States.
