Don’t Just Burn the Fat—Freeze it Away with CoolSculpting®

In Seattle, we are no strangers to exercise and healthy living. Even when the rain is pouring outside and the sun is nowhere to be found, you can always find someone biking or going out for a jog—we were even once named the “Most Active City in America” by Men’s Health magazine. However, one of the unfortunate facts of life is that body fat does not always care about how much you exercise and make healthy decisions—sometimes it just won’t go away no matter what you try. For healthy men and women who are struggling to lose those last ten pounds on their way to their ideal figure, there is now a non-surgical fat freezing procedure in Seattle: CoolSculpting.

CoolSculpting is a way to supplement your healthy lifestyle, giving you the extra boost you need to see those abs begin to pop and your dream silhouette take shape. Imagine finally being able to rid yourself of that belly, those love handles, or some of the persistent fat around your thighs.

Diet and exercise are essential to maintaining good health, but even the best practices won’t always be enough to provide you with your desired body shape. Some of us are simply predisposed to carrying stubborn fat in certain areas, and age, a slowing metabolism, and long office hours all play against our goals.

Men and women who come to the Larrabee Center for CoolSculpting leave excited to begin seeing results and are encouraged to continue working hard to get the most from their treatment. Whether you want to feel more confident in a bathing suit on Alki Beach, or you just want to feel more comfortable in your favorite clothes, CoolSculpting can help you achieve your ideal body without the need for surgery.

Take the next step toward a slimmer, healthier looking figure. Contact the Larrabee Center today to schedule your CoolSculpting consultation with one of our Seattle plastic surgeons.

 

 

Your CoolSculpting FAQs

Answering Your CoolSculpting Questions

Below are some of the most frequently asked questions we get about CoolSculpting in Seattle. If you would like to know more about the procedure or have personal questions of your own, please do not hesitate to call our office and schedule an in-person appointment with one of our licensed estheticians to speak about achieving your body goals with CoolSculpting.

CoolSculpting FAQ

Am I right for CoolSculpting? Will a different procedure be more effective for me?

CoolSculpting is not for everyone, but it can help men and women who are relatively healthy and at a stable weight to significantly reduce the appearance of common problems such as love-handles, a protruding belly, or excess thigh fat. These problems can often linger despite diet and exercise due to factors such as age, a slowing metabolism, and genetics.

During your consultation, one of our licensed estheticians will carefully observe your condition and listen to your goals and concerns to determine if CoolSculpting is right for you. Some patients may be better suited for a cosmetic surgery procedure.

Is the CoolSculpting treatment painful?

CoolSculpting is a safe and relatively pain-free method of eliminating problem fat without surgery. Some patients may experience some minor discomfort during the beginning of their treatment, although it should be no more than an intense pressure or suction sensation. CoolSculpting is designed to kill underlying fat cells without harming the surrounding skin or tissue. After the treatment, there can be mild swelling and bruising for one to two weeks.

Will the fat come back after my CoolSculpting treatment?

While it will help you to lose stubborn fat, CoolSculpting is not meant to replace a healthy lifestyle or for the treatment of obesity. It is important that patients who undergo CoolSculpting continue to stay active and eat healthy in order to maintain long-term results. CoolSculpting will help eliminate the problem fat, but it is up to you to keep it from coming back afterward.

What to Expect After Treatment

What to Expect After Treatment

After Your CoolSculpting Procedure

Once your CoolSculpting treatment is complete, you are free to return to your normal routine without any downtime—a definitely attractive perk for men and women considering a fat reduction procedure. Many of our patients will fit their CoolSculpting treatment into their lunch break and return to work afterwards without missing a beat.

At first, you may not notice too much of a difference in the shape or size of your body. Don’t worry! This is because the cryolipolysis process takes time to eliminate the crystallized fat cells. After just one month, you will start to notice a slimming of your treatment area and can expect to see your full results after about three months. Patients often love this natural adjustment to their slimmer size rather than experiencing an obvious, overnight change as with other procedures. If you are wanting to slim down for a big event or vacation, it is important to plan ahead of time so you can enjoy your full results and your new body!

A single CoolSculpting treatment can reduce up to 25 percent of fat cells in a given area. To achieve your goal body shape, one of our licensed estheticians may recommend undergoing a series of two or more CoolSculpting sessions. Once the fat is lost with CoolSculpting, it is gone for good. However, it is important to remember that you can still gain weight if you do not maintain a healthy lifestyle moving forward. CoolSculpting is intended to supplement good habits of diet and exercise, not replace them.

Our CoolSculpting patients are often thrilled with their results and excited to show off their new bodies. With CoolSculpting, you can now have the body you deserve to go along with the healthy lifestyle you already love.

Give the Larrabee Center a call today to begin discussing your own CoolSculpting procedure and options. You can begin enjoying a new, slimmer shape in as little as one month!

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

Understanding the Fat-Freezing Process of Cryolipolysis

CoolSculpting is a relatively new body contouring procedure that is designed to gradually eliminate fat without having to make a single incision on your body. The procedure uses a revolutionary fat-reduction technique known as cryolipolysis, which literally means freezing your stubborn fat cells. Once these fat cells are frozen, they become crystallized and are naturally eliminated from your body over time, resulting in a smooth and gradual reduction of problem fat from specified regions of the body.

Your CoolSculpting procedure with one of our licensed estheticians, will take only about two hours to complete and does not require anesthesia. You can even read a book, watch television, stay on top of work, or take a nap during your procedure.

In order to target your problem fat with the cryolipolysis process, one of our licensed estheticians will use the handheld CoolSculpting device to apply a deep cooling energy to the underlying layer of fat in the treatment area.

The treatment area will become numb from the cooling process, minimizing any pain or discomfort during the procedure. Most patients experience no more than a strong sensation of suction or pinching for the first five to ten minutes as one of our licensed estheticians treats the area with the cooling handpiece. This cooling effect is designed to freeze the problem fat cells without harming the skin or surrounding tissues.

Depending on your situation, we may recommend undergoing a series of CoolSculpting treatments in order to address all of the stubborn fat. Sessions can be spread about a week or two apart or “stacked” on the same day to maximize your CoolSculpting benefits.

If you have any questions about the CoolSculpting process or would like to discuss your own personal options, give our office a call to speak with Dr. Larrabee. Dr. Larrabee will discuss the CoolSculpting procedure in detail and carefully listen to your goals in order to develop a unique treatment plan, designed to work for your body and lifestyle.
