Over time, our bodies can develop stubborn fat in places that won’t go away, regardless of how much you diet or exercise.
Sometimes, there are some problem areas where it is difficult to lose excess weight. Genetics and hormonal fluctuations can be the cause of this unwanted fat. The most common problem areas are the neck, chest/arms, stomach/abs, love handles, thighs, knees, and back.
Our body contouring experts and board-certified plastic surgeons at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York are here to help you change the way you feel about your body.
Nonsurgical Body Contouring
CoolSculpting® is a noninvasive procedure used to help patients eliminate stubborn fat from the body using controlled cooling that affects cold-sensitive fat cells without disrupting surrounding tissue.
SculpSure® is an innovative, FDA-approved, noninvasive laser treatment that reduces stubborn fat in areas like the abdomen and flanks by heating and destroying the fat cells.
what is coolsculpting?
The procedure is a non-invasive fat reduction procedure, so there is no downtime required after treatment, and there are minimal side effects. Patients typically do not experience any discomfort during the procedure. Treatment can last anywhere from 1-3 hours, depending on areas being treated.
The CoolSculpting treatment areas are placed between two cooling panels and patients feel a cooling sensation that quickly dissipates. This treatment works to freeze fat cells, then the body naturally expels the dead cells from the body.
No anesthesia or downtime is required for a CoolSculpting treatment.
Results can be seen as soon as 3 weeks, but prime results show about 2 months after treatment.
Surgical Body Contouring
For patients looking for more dramatic improvement, or who need to address skin laxity and fat reduction at the same time, surgical procedures can be a good choice. Our board-certified plastic surgeons offer the following options:
Liposuction targets stubborn fat deposits on nearly any area of the body. The procedure removes the fat via micro-cannulas and gentle suction. Ultrasound energy can also be used to liquefy the fat before removing it. Our surgeons will help you select the best liposuction technique for your needs and goals.
Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, addresses the stubborn fat around the middle while eliminating loose skin that often develops as a result of age, pregnancy, or weight fluctuations. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and downtime is usually a few weeks. However, the results are very dramatic and long-lasting.
