Los Angeles Plastic Surgery Specialist Offering Body Contouring for Summer
The surgeons at Marina Plastic Surgery, a Los Angeles plastic surgery practice, are offering CoolSculpting® by ZELTIQ™, a non-surgical way to enhance body contours by removing unwanted fat.
Marina Del Ray, California (August 2011) – Short of time to get into that teenie, weenie bikini? Need those love handles to disappear? Help is on the way. Dr. Grant Stevens, a Los Angeles plastic surgery specialist, offers CoolSculpting by ZELTIQ™ body contouring procedures, the fast easy way to lose unwanted pockets of fat. 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 is 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. The body's natural cleansing processes remove the targeted 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, particularly in the summer, to achieve their cosmetic goals," Dr. Stevens notes. Those who receive a CoolSculpting treatment typically enjoy the toned, slimmer results 3 weeks after their treatment.
"My 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 in Los Angeles, 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, as opposed to Los Angeles liposuction treatments.
Dr. Stevens trained extensively in both general and plastic surgery before establishing his successful Los Angeles plastic surgery practice. Dr. Stevens has published extensively in clinical research publications showcasing some of the latest developments in plastic surgery procedures and has gained recognition as a pioneer in new techniques for procedures including liposuction and breast reduction.
