Many non-invasive treatments for fat removal have been tried over the years and a new technology called CoolSculpting has now met that challenge,” states Dr. Thomas Leach of the Princeton Center for Plastic Surgery. This FDA-cleared technique, recently developed by two Harvard scientists, takes advantage of fat cells’ sensitivity to the cold. The targeted cooling process causes disruption of fat cells while leaving the other local cells unharmed. The fat cells die off in a very predictable manner and are naturally eliminated from your body.
Dr. Leach notes that “the real beauty of this procedure is that it is truly non-invasive — no anesthesia, no cutting, no post-operative garments, and absolutely no down time.” At the completion of the procedure the patient walks out of the office and resumes all activities with no restrictions.
CoolSculpting is currently being used primarily for areas around the trunk such as love handles, muffin tops, and upper and lower abdomen. The ideal candidate is generally fit and has a few stubborn areas that seem to resist diet and exercise.
Dr. Leach is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and is an active member of the American Society of Plastic Surgery. He stresses the importance of seeing a fully trained plastic surgeon who can perform the full spectrum of body contouring surgery.
“CoolSculpting is a safe, innovative, and predictable technology and the key to success is making sure it is the best option for a specific patient.”
The Princeton Center for Plastic Surgery is hosting a CoolSculpting open house on Friday, February 1, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dr. Leach is offering complimentary evaluations and a live demonstration will take place at 11 a.m. The center is located at 932 State Road, Princeton, New Jersey. Please call 609-921-7161 by January 31 to reserve your spot so they can be sure to accommodate you.
