Fat-reducing cosmetic treatments have seen an upstart among their ranks with CoolSculpting, the new, trendy way of removing excess stomach skin and tightening muscles. Meanwhile, old stalwart liposuction is more invasive, requiring surgery to excise fat deposits from parts of the body. Now, two doctors are throwing their hats in the ring with a new liposuction technique to be used with CoolSculpting.
World News Report highlights the combined use of liposuction and CoolSculpting to maximize fat removal and toned appearance. Dr. Mahmood Kara and Dr. Saed Al-Habib, cosmetic surgeons at Toronto’s Whitby and Vaughn, offer the liposuction method SAFELipo that removes fat without hurting nerves and blood vessels. SAFELipo also allows the remaining fat layer to be evened out for a smooth surface.
For those not willing to undergo surgery to remove fat and suffer downtime, the doctors recommend CoolSculpting to freeze excessive fat while reducing vascular damage and risk of contour deformities. It can also be used with surgical treatments to fully contour one’s body.
Medical studies cite CoolSculpting as a good way for patients to remove excess fat that have had trouble doing do through diet and exercise. Dr. Kara believes CoolSculpting can enhance a liposuction or tummy tuck—with patient testimony “very high at our plastic surgery practice, and fine-tuning with CoolSculpting makes it even higher.”
Dr. Al-Habib feels that the combination of CoolSculpting and liposuction will give patients the best way to remove fat. He believes that patients want the best results, and that along with performing and informing them of the techniques, “we hope that those who have the procedure will benefit with an improved appearance and enhancements in life.”
