CoolSculpting Baltimore

What Is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical procedure that cools fat kills fat cells by freezing them while leaving other skin tissue unharmed. This revolutionary procedure targets the small pockets of fat around the waistline, abdomen, arms and outer thighs which are very resistant to diet and exercise. In Baltimore CoolSculpting is safely provided by Dr. Brent Birely, a board certified plastic surgeon who has been practicing for over two decades. It is easy to see why his patients consider him to be one of the best providers of plastic surgery Maryland & Baltimore have to offer.

As an alternative method to invasive surgery, the method allows you to avoid a longer recovery time usually associated with intensive procedures. Developed by Harvard scientists, this FDA-cleared, patented procedure uses a targeted cold to reduce fat tissue lying beneath the skin. The tissue freezes off your problem areas. The iced tissue becomes crystallized and naturally leaves the body.

How long does CoolSculpting last?

The benefit of having among the finest CoolSculpting Baltimore can provide is that once the fat cells have been treated, their chance of returning is *substantially diminished. If there is future weight gain, the fat cells that still exist in other areas of the body will expand, but the areas treated with CoolSculpting are commonly unaffected.

CoolSculpting is a great benefit for those who have stubborn pockets of fat in areas that are almost impossible to reduce by diet and exercise. Women are particularly happy to finally rid themselves of saddlebags, or the layer of fat around the waistline referred to as a ‘muffin top’. Men are equally happy to finally have a sculpted back or to have their double chin diminished through CoolSculpting.

*Individual results may vary.

In Baltimore, Who Can
Benefit from CoolSculpting?

Some men and women suffer from fatty pockets that survive all attempts of dieting and exercise. If you suffer from similar problems, CoolSculpting may offer you a solution. The procedure is not meant as a weight loss solution for patients with larger goals or weight loss needs. For those patients, liposuction may be a more effective procedure. Candidates for CoolSculpting® hope to address smaller areas that may include:

  • Muffin tops, or areas just above the belt line
  • Love handles, bulges around the waist
  • Thunder thighs, or pockets of fat in the upper leg area

During a one-on-one consultation Dr. Birely can determine if CoolSculpting can deliver beneficial results catering to your specific needs. Coolsculpting is not a substitute for a weight loss program or liposuction. Patients should have a stable weight that is within 10 to 20 pounds of their ideal weight.

The focus of CoolSculpting is primarily aimed at people who are close to their ideal weight but have stubborn pockets of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. Consulting Dr. Birely is the best way of determining what your best option is. Dr. Birely provides among the best CoolSculpting Maryland residents could hope for. It isn’t for everyone but for those who are plagued with 5 to 10 pounds of immovable fat deposits, it can be the means to finally achieving their weight loss and image goals.

In Bel Air & Lutherville, What Can I Expect during a CoolSculpting® Procedure?

Once you have opted for your CoolSculpting® procedure, you can experience the freezing technology work to reduce your problem areas. Dr. Birely, using a cooling applicator, will apply cold temperatures to those stubborn fatty areas. Each area treatment can take up to one hour. The procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately.

How many CoolSculpting treatments will I need?

The number of sessions needed will depend on the area to be treated and the amount of excess fat that is resident in these areas. Typically, patients have 2 to 5 sessions scheduled about 6 weeks apart. Each treatment gives about a 25% fat reduction.

When looking for the most effective Coolsculpting Maryland has to offer, plan to undergo as many treatments as Dr. Birely recommends. This will give you the fastest and most effective result from this remarkable, non invasive treatment.

How Long is Recovery after CoolSculpting?

Nevertheless, these side effects are temporary and tend to resolve completely in a few weeks. Your results will usually appear throughout the next few days as your body flushes the remaining tissue.
