Coolsculpting® for Back Fat Removal

Even with vigorous exercise and a healthy diet, fat can stubbornly accumulate on the back. It can be difficult to target this area with exercise alone, so many people find themselves looking for alternative ways to remove stubborn back fat.

Using a technique that literally freezes body fat to destroy and eliminate it, fat freezing in Ashland KY has never been easier. If you are looking for a doctor to perform Coolsculpting® in the Ashland KY area, Dr. Amy Vaughan’s Barboursville WV office is the perfect place to go.

Coolsculpting® works by targeting fat deposits beneath the skin with precise temperatures that are known to cause apoptosis (cell death). Once the fat cells have died, they will be naturally cleared by the body’s metabolic and elimination processes. Coolsculpting® permanently destroys fat cells, so the results can be long lasting with proper exercise and diet. Most patients report only minimal discomfort during the procedure, which lasts between one and two hours. During this time, patients are able to read, sleep, or simply relax while the cooling power of CoolSculpting® destroys fat cells. Some patients experience numbness or tingling after the procedure, but these effects will diminish on their own in the hours following the treatment. Results can be seen in one to three months after the treatment, as the body naturally clears away the dead fat cells.

CoolSculpting® is a great alternative to invasive procedures such as liposuction. Coolsculpting® does not involve the use of blades or scalpels, so there is no risk of bleeding or infection. While liposuction is able to provide immediate reduction of fat, the invasive nature and unpredictable results offered by the procedure make many people hesitant to try it. For most patients, the natural and gradual results offered by CoolSculpting® are well worth the wait. When stubborn back fat becomes troublesome and liposuction is undesirable, many patients may find that fat freezing is an attractive solution. CoolSculpting® is not a cure for obesity, but rather an appropriate treatment for individuals who maintain a healthy lifestyle and a relatively fit body.
