Choosing the Right Procedures

I have worked as a receptionist at a popular cosmetic surgery office for the past ten years, and I have seen every type of cosmetic surgery and recovery that you could imagine. Unfortunately, some patients are much better at choosing their procedures than others. For example, we had one patient that opted to have ten nose jobs in a row, which lead to a deformed bridge and a super tiny nose tip. Unfortunately, when she came back a few months later to have the problem corrected, the doctors didn't have enough tissue to work with. On my website, you will learn how to decide which procedures are right for you, so that you aren't left regretting your decisions down the road.

3 Advantages Of Freezing The Fat Away

by Michelle Austin

Cryolipolysis is a method of removing unwanted fat that involves freezing the cells so they are eventually destroyed and removed from the body. There are several advantages of freezing fat instead of using other fat removal methods.

Fast Procedure

The procedure itself is fast. You may have an appointment for an hour or less depending on how many areas will be treated during each session. A fast procedure makes fat freezing more accessible to people, both in terms of costs and commitment. More invasive procedures, such as liposuction, may require several hours to complete. Since liposuction is more akin to a surgical procedure, you will need to take time off work or school for the procedure. People who have a fat freezing procedure can easily schedule their session on a lunch break and without any hesitation, go back to work or continue with the rest of their day.

Natural Results

Although the procedure is fast, the results take time. Delayed gratification can be discouraging to some people, but for others, slowly shrinking in inches can be more desirable because the changes appear more natural. There is no obvious changes in your body immediately after the procedure, so you will not be bandaged, bloated, and have large bruises, which makes fat freezing discreet. Shedding a few inches off a specific body part over a series of months simply looks like you have changed your eating habits or participated in a new exercise routine, instead of looking like you had a cosmetic procedure.

No Recovery

There is no recovery time involved in fat freezing. Some people may experience temporary numbness of the area, but this goes away quickly. With liposuction, the recovery period can span over weeks. Depending on where you have liposuction, recovery can be more uncomfortable and result in missed work since sitting up, standing, or walking can be difficult. With liposuction, you may also need to spend more time at the surgical center to recover from any anesthetic used. Some people may have general anesthesia for liposuction, which requires several hours in recovery after the procedure before you can go home. Even local anesthetic, which is more commonly used in liposuction can be problematic, especially if you had your legs liposuctioned. You may need help leaving the surgical center and for several hours thereafter if you have difficulties feeling your legs.

Fat freezing is a popular alternative to liposuction for many reasons. This discreet and effective method of destroying unwanted fat can help many people achieve the body they always wanted.
