“Despite going to the gym and eating a balanced diet, many women—and men—have those stubborn fatty areas of the body that remain,” says Gary S. Kasten, DO, FACOG. It can be quite frustrating for people that lead a healthy, active lifestyle, yet still gain or retain weight. Unintentional weight gain—weight gain that results even though activity levels and food/liquid consumption have not changed—can be a result of many factors.
“There are only a few ways to achieve permanent fat reduction,” says Kasten. “One way is through invasive liposuction surgery, which can be a lengthy procedure, and another is through CoolSculpting, an FDA-approved, simple, noninvasive treatment that safely targets diet- and exercise-resistant fat.” The treatment takes only 35 to 45 minutes, and on average, reduces fat by 22 to 25 percent. Kasten’s office also offers the newest applicator called Cool Advantage, which provides greater comfort and shorter treatment time.
The CoolSculpting Body Contouring Procedure takes place in Kasten’s tranquil and private office, which is equipped with a flat-screen TV with cable and an iPad with internet access for patient comfort, convenience and entertainment. While the patient is enjoying their favorite TV show or browsing their social media channels, the CoolSculpting technology is safely delivering precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, those fat cells are eliminated from the body through sweat and urination.
Kasten’s CoolSculpting specialists are highly trained and experienced, and have attended CoolSculpting University, which provides advanced training programs. Whether someone is looking to reduce fat in the inner thighs, outer thighs, love handles, back, bra fat, arms, flanks, buttocks (banana roll), chin, the entire stomach or specific areas of the stomach, CoolSculpting can be a lasting solution.
