sculpting in Oak Brook
describes a variety of cosmetic procedures done to remove fat
deposits to give the client a more toned and muscular appearance.
Body sculpting includes surgical procedures like liposuction and
non-surgical procedures like CoolSculpting. Body sculpting procedures
are not supposed to be used for weight loss; they are for patients
who are at or near their optimal weight.
What Is Liposuction?
Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that can remove fat from almost any part of the body. While there are several different variations, they all involve using a thin hollow tube called a cannula to break up the fat cells and make it easier for the doctor to remove them.
What Is VASER Hi-Definition Body Sculpting?
VASER Hi-Definition Body Sculpting is a type of liposuction that uses ultrasound to melt the fat cells. The cannula emits ultrasound and then suctions away the liquified fat. Before starting, the doctor will administer a saline solution containing epinephrine to reduce bleeding. Most patients will need a local anesthetic or a regional anesthetic with sedation to stay comfortable.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a cosmetic procedure that has been approved by the FDA. It takes advantage of the fact that fat has a higher freezing point than do other tissues. That makes it possible to freeze fat cells without harming any neighboring tissues. The body will gradually eliminate the frozen fat cells.
A CoolSculpting treatment takes about an hour, and each treatment will freeze about 20 to 30 percent of the targeted fat. The doctor will apply the cooling applicators to the treatment site. There is no downtime, and the patient will continue to see improvement over the next three months.
