What is Coolsculpting?
Cryolipolysis, also known as Coolsculpting is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that is used for mild to moderate fat reduction. This heavily marketed procedure works by applied extremely low temperatures to problem areas to “freeze the fat”. This kills targeted fat cells and claims to reduce up to 20% of the subcutaneous fat cells in that are.
Problems with Coolsculpting
First off, Coolsculpting can be quite painful. Numbness, mild to moderate pain, muscle cramping and tenderness are among the several side effects listed by the creator of Coolsculpting. Secondly, cryolipolysis has a well-known complication known as Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia (PAH). This well-documented condition stems from Coolsculpting procedures and results in a deformed body contour irregularity.
Best Coolsculpting Revision Options
When it comes to Coolsculpting revision options, the gold standard in cosmetic plastic surgery is VASER high definition liposuction. Coolsculpting marketing makes patients think it is a quick and easy solution to reduce stubborn fat. However, after seeing undesirable results, it is time to consider what the absolute best cool sculpting revision options are. Going through another cosmetic procedure may seem like an unpleasant experience for these patients, but with a trained high definition liposuction expert like Dr. Mowlavi, they can be sure it will be their last and they will have the body they originally dreamed of.
What Makes VASER Special?
VASER liposuction technology allows an experienced body contouring expert to remove all the stubborn fat (even the deformed areas in PAH) by melting the fat and creating a smooth and even result. As a trainer for VASER high definition liposuction, Dr. Mowlavi has mastered the various techniques needed for Coolsculpting revision surgery and has even presented his protocol for PAH correction using high definition liposuction at various Nation Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery meetings such as the 2019 World Congress on Liposuction.
