It's Summer, So Freeze Your Butt Off By Marina Plastic Surgery

Marina Del Ray, California – July 11, 2011 – Short of time to get into that teenie, weenie bikini? Need those love handles to disappear? Help is on the way.
Grant Stevens, MD, FASC, a board certified plastic surgeon, attributes the rising popularity to its effectiveness in targeting specific areas of fat.
"CoolSculpting can be an excellent option to traditional liposuction," says Dr. Stevens. "It's ideal for men and women who are at or near their target weight but continue to experience fat deposits on their flanks and love handles."
CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling to reduce fat deposits. A non-surgical body contouring procedure, it is FDA approved for non-invasive fat layer reduction of the flanks and love handles. Your body's natural cleansing processes remove the damaged fat cells, resulting in safe, gradual fat reduction.
"Because the procedure requires no incisions, anesthesia, pain medication or downtime, many of our patients choose CoolSculpting especially in the summer to achieve their cosmetic goals," Dr. Stevens notes. Those who undergo CoolSculpting typically enjoy the toned, slimmer results three weeks after their treatment.
"Patients like CoolSculpting because there is no discomfort during the procedure," adds Dr. Stevens. "They can even read a book, text or relax and listen to music. Although this method does not offer the more extensive fat loss available from traditional liposuction, it is a good alternative for those with smaller areas of fat."
Marina Plastic Surgery offers both surgical and non-surgical body-contouring procedures. The surgeons and staff are known for customizing each treatment plan to address the individual patient's concerns and desired outcome. Dr. Stevens says the busy lifestyles in the southern California area make non-surgical options such as CoolSculpting particularly popular.
