CoolSculpting®

FAT REDUCTION IN
BATTLE CREEK, MI

At Family Surgical, Dr. Koziarski and Bethany Huffman, P.A. have been successfully performing CoolSculpting® since 2013. CoolSculpting® allows our Battle Creek, Kalamazoo and surrounding area patients who are looking for a nonsurgical alternative to work on removing stubborn areas of fat. CoolSculpting® could be your introduction to a thinner, more toned you!

HOW DOES IT WORK?

This non-invasive procedure works by using cryolipolysis, to target, cool and reduce fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissue. CoolSculpting® has no downtime and it offers Michigan patients a safe alternative for the reduction of fat.

With CoolSculpting®, our Battle Creek area patients typically see a noticeable reduction of fat in the treated area after just one visit, but you may desire even more fat reduction with additional treatments. Typically, two sequential treatments at 3-6 month intervals are recommended. CoolSculpting® is non-invasive with no needles, no incisions, and no down time.

*Results and patient experiences may vary.

The CoolMini™ is designed for small areas of fat like the Submental area (commonly referred to as the "double chin"). The CoolMini™ is designed to be a great alternative to other popular devices and methods used to treat and contour the neck, like liposuction.

CoolSculpting® Details and FAQ

It’s called stubborn fat for a reason! You can be very dedicated to eating well and exercising and still have areas of fat that do not respond to weight loss and exercise. You are not alone. Luckily, CoolSculpting® has changed the game for many of our Battle Creek patients who are taking advantage of this exciting new technology. Developed by Harvard scientists, CoolSculpting® is a patented, clinically proven procedure that freezes fat cells without damaging the skin, blood vessels or nerves. This process is known as cryolipolysis, which works because the lipids in fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than does the water that fills other cells. It kills only select fat cells, which reduces the overall thickness of the targeted fat layer.

Immediately after CoolSculpting® treatments, most of our Battle Creek patients get back to and on with their normal day.

Over the following few months your body may natuarally reduce the fat cells. It is non surgical and FDA-cleared and there is no downtime. That is pretty cool. Even better, you don’t have to take pills or supplements, and as long as you maintain your weight with normal diet and exercise, your results should remain stable.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR COOLSCULPTING®?

The best candidates for CoolSculpting® in our Battle Creek practice understand that this body-contouring procedure is not a substitute for proper diet and exercise. It's men and women at or near their ideal weight who typically see optimal results from this procedure.

WHAT WILL MY COOLSCULPTING® RESULTS BE?

Typically, each CoolSculpting® treatment results in a noticeable reduction of fat in the treated area. After the initial treatment is complete, you may be able to attain further reductions with additional appointments, potentially resulting in even more fat loss. Some patients, though, find that one treatment fully addresses their goals. During your consultation for CoolSculpting® at our Battle Creek office, our highly skilled medical team will discuss and design a plan that suits you best.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE COOLSCULPTING® FAT REDUCTION TREATMENT AT FAMILY SURGICAL?

To initiate the treatment we will position the device on your body. The device will then draw the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure – enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. An hour or so later, you are done and will be able to return to normal activity.

WHAT DOES THE COOLSCULPTING® TREATMENT FEEL LIKE?

As the cooling starts to work in the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This quickly dissipates. Then patients can enjoy watching a movie, reading a book or magazine, working on your laptop – some even take a nap during their treatment.

CAN I RETURN TO NORMAL ACTIVITIES AFTER MY COOLSCULPTING® TREATMENT IN BATTLE CREEK?

CoolSculpting® is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, numbness or discomfort in the treated area, but this is generally temporary and will resolve completely. Oftentimes, patients return to work after the session is over.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?

You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will usually experience the most dramatic results after one to three months. Your body is still flushing fat cells and will continue doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.

*Results and patient experiences may vary.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS?

CoolSculpting® is a very safe procedure. There have been no reported cases of skin injury to date. A fairly common side effect is temporary numbness. Since this procedure is designed to work by releasing fat into the body, some people have questioned whether this fat load in the blood and lymphatic system could cause harm. Extensive clinical research has shown that this is no concern. Your body is perfectly capable of handling the slow, steady release of fat, similar to when we eat a meal. On occasion, some patients experience short-term tingling or mild pain, but this typically resolves in a few weeks.

CAN COOLSCULPTING® BE REPEATED?

Yes, since a percentage of fat is removed with each treatment, additional treatments are likely to give you better results. Most people require 2 treatments and these are usually done 4-6 weeks apart. Your medical provider will discuss with you the projected number of treatments to expect to achieve the results you want during your consultation.

DO I NEED TO TAKE SPECIAL SUPPLEMENTS OR FOLLOW A STRICT DIET AND EXERCISE PROGRAM?

No supplements or pills are required, and you do not have to adopt new diet and exercise habits. A lot of times, this procedure gives people a little jump start and extra incentive to start taking better care of themselves.
