Shape What You See With CoolSculpting
FDA Cleared. Non-Surgical. No Downtime.
Mat-Su Plastic Surgery is pleased to offer CoolSculpting as a part of our services available to treat areas of fat typically resistant to dieting and exercise.
Mat-Su Plastic Surgery was the first practice to introduce CoolSculpting to Alaska. We were eager to include CoolSculpting in our practice because the science behind it is well proven and the treatment is safe. CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared non-surgical method of permanent reduction of fat cells – with no surgery and no downtime.
CoolSculpting freezes the lipid molecules in the fat cells, causing the fat cells to gradually die over several weeks after the treatment. There is no concern about any elevation in your cholesterol or triglyceride levels because the fat cells are dying slowly. It typically takes 3-4 weeks to begin to see results after a treatment, with most patients achieving their final result by 12-16 weeks.
Of course, in Alaska, it seems that we should be able to freeze our fat cells during the winter just by strolling outside in summer clothing. Unfortunately, we would achieve hypothermia and frostbite injuries before we would decrease our areas of fatty fullness, or lipodystrophy. CoolSculpting delivers a controlled localized cold, unlike an Alaskan winter!
While CoolSculpting can be an excellent option for treating areas of fatty fullness, it is not for everyone – and it is not for every problem area. During your initial consultation, Dr. Susan Dean, who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, will evaluate your individual skin quality, treatment goals and fat distribution to determine if CoolSculpting, or perhaps a surgical option such as liposuction, abdominoplasty, or panniculectomy, will be more suitable to meet your goal.
Mat-Su Plastic Surgery is a certified CoolSculpting practice. All of our staff members have completed academic training designed by CoolSculpting to assure the highest level of care for you.
