As the chill of winter surrounds us, the last thing we think of is the beach weather of summer. At Pinsky Plastic Surgery, we believe right now, during these last few chilly months, is exactly the time to start thinking about swimsuit season. If you’re considering cosmetic surgery to get your bikini ready body back, keep in mind that it takes some time for any body sculpting procedure to yield its optimal results.
Everyone seems to have that one stubborn part of their body that diet and exercise alone, just can’t fix. It seems, despite the hardest work or strongest commitment to eating well, there is a love handle, tummy, backside, or some other area that just won’t shed those last couple of inches. For those people, liposuction is an excellent solution; if performed soon, we will have you looking great, just in time to show off your swimsuit!
To see the results of liposuction, it generally takes 4-6 weeks for the majority of the swelling to go away and as many as 12 to see it all disappear, leaving you with the slender figure you desire. Liposuction is performed through very small incisions, which allow for the insertion of a tube that will loosen and suction out excess fat cells. These fat cells do not replace themselves post-operation and, as such, make liposuction a perfect solution to these trouble areas.
While liposuction is often considered the best means of removing those stubborn spots, there are cases in which some do not have the time for a surgical recovery. I these instances, there are other non-surgical options that may be able to help a person with those persistent fatty deposits, without the need for surgery. One such innovative technique is known as Coolsculpting.
Coolsculpting® is a non-invasive procedure that uses a targeted cooling process to freeze fat cells, killing them off for the body to absorb on its own, naturally. This allows patients to achieve similar effects to that of liposuction, without the need for the incisions and recovery time. Seeing the final results can still take a couple of months, as the body takes time to dispose of the frozen fatty deposits, and the treatments may require more than one visit.
Dr. Pinsky is excited to have recently added Coolsculpting® to the services offered in his practice.
Don’t spend the cold winter months idly sitting by, waiting for the warm weather to come. Use this time to get ready for summer with a body sculpting procedure and achieve your ultimate body goals when hitting the beach in 2013.
