Face it – everyone wants to look great – especially with upcoming vacations and warmer weather on the horizon. But for many, unwanted fat can be persistent, despite our best efforts to reduce it and attempt to improve our appearance through diet and exercise.

“For many women, common problem areas are typically the abdomen and thighs,” say Drs. George T. Danakas and Armen Kirakosyan of Aesthetic Gynecology Specialists of WNY, “which is why we are excited about being able to offer a non-invasive non-surgical procedure called Coolscuplting® to our patients.

Coolscuplting has received significant attention in the media on popular television shows like The Doctors, Good Morning America, The Today Show, Dr. Oz, and Rachel Ray, to name a few. It is an FDA-cleared fat-freezing non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate fat. “Coolsculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target fat cells underneath the skin, while leaving the skin itself unaffected,” explain Drs. Danakas and Kirakosyan.

Coolscuplting is performed only in a medical office under the supervision of a licensed medical professional. Absolutely no surgery, needles, anesthesia or invasive technologies are required. More importantly, treatment is customized to each individual. You will meet with a the physician for a one-on-one consultation, who will discuss a holistic approach to your goals for reshaping your body. Together, you’ll look at your whole body from different angles—and then focus on specific areas where you want to eliminate fat.

For some people, a customized treatment plan may include more than one CoolSculpting treatment. For example, you may want freeze away fat from your inner and/or outer thighs—and also get rid of unwanted abdominal fat. During your treatment, a gel pad and applicator are applied to the targeted area, which delivers controlled cooling to the targeted fat. Patients are able to relax, read, check their email, or even take a nap during the treatment.

While the procedure can be a little chilly, that initial feeling of intense cold usually subsides within five to 10 minutes as the area numbs. Because applicators are used to draw fatty tissue into an applicator cup, there may be a sensation of pulling, tugging, and/or mild pinching. Patients often experience redness in the treated areas for up to a few hours after the applicator is removed; however, most return to work and normal activities immediately following the treatment. While some patients may see results as early as three weeks after their first treatment, the most dramatic results are usually seen between one and three months following treatment.

George T. Danakas, M.D. and Armen Kirakosyan, M.D. invite you to meet with them for a one-on-one consultation to discuss your goals for reshaping your body and focus on specific areas where you want to eliminate fat just in time for the summer months.
