CoolSculpting In San Diego

Freeze Fat Away

Coolsculpting La JollaDr. Dennis Bucko, the founder and owner of Belladerma Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Care Center, believes patients should have a choice in their cosmetic treatment.  Some patients desire body sculpting treatment, but are not keen on the idea of surgery and the associated downtime. These patients are excellent candidates for a non-surgical fat reduction treatment called CoolSculpting if excess skin is not a problem.

The FDA-cleared CoolSculpting system uses advanced Cryolipolysis technology to freeze and destroy fat cells and sculpt the body’s curves and contours without needles, incisions or anesthesia. It is clinically proven to reduce excess body fat. Thanks to leading plastic surgeons like Dr. Bucko, millions of people around the world have enjoyed noticeable, long-lasting body contouring results with CoolSculpting.

Why Dr. Bucko’s Patients Love CoolSculpting

cs-diagramDr. Bucko can use CoolSculpting to reduce selective unwanted fat cells in specific areas of a patient’s body, such as the abdomen, flanks (i.e., “love handles”), inner or outer thighs, and neck. It is not a weight loss solution, and is most effective for individuals that are within about 30 pounds of their ideal weight, but have stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet and fitness efforts. Dr.  Bucko meets with every candidate individually and creates a personalized plan of treatment based around the area(s) of concern. He may recommend additional treatment sessions in order to meet the patient’s goals. CoolSculpting does not tighten loose skin, however.

CoolSculpting is popular with Dr. Bucko’s patients because it is effective and minimally invasive. Treatment does not require anesthesia, needles, incisions or injections. Patients can relax (or even nap) during treatment without any pain. Multiple areas of the body can be treated during a single appointment for a dramatic transformation.

During a CoolSculpting procedure, excess fat is held between two cooling panels. The panels deliver controlled cooling to crystallize (freeze) selected fat cells under the skin, without disturbing the surrounding tissue or skin. The fat cells die, and the body naturally processes and eliminates them through its natural waste-removal system. This is not painful, and post-operative side effects are rare. There is no downtime after a CoolSculpting session. Patients can return to work, exercise and their regular routine very soon after treatment.

Results are not immediately obvious, but become apparent as the body flushes out the dead fat cells. This generally occurs around the four to six week mark, but it can take up to three to four months for optimal results to appear. The treated area looks slimmer, firmer and smoother, clothing fits better and the patient feels more confident. Once the fat cells are gone, they will not return.

To enjoy long-lasting results, Dr. Bucko recommends his CoolSculpting patients maintain their weight with a healthy diet and regular exercise. This is usually easy, because patients experience a burst of motivation after seeing their results from CoolSculpting treatment.
