Cool sculpting Dubai, which is also referred to as cryolipolysis(fat-freezing), is a cosmetic non-surgical fat reduction procedure which uses controlled cooling to destroy the stubborn fat deposits. It is done to reshape the body by removing the excess fat not responsive to diet and exercise.
The Need for Cool Sculpting
One might have fat deposits in the body due to the following reasons;
- Physical trauma on the body
- Lifestyle choices
- Lack of exercise
- A botched surgery or treatment
Individuals having low self-esteem and poor self-image because of the stubborn fat deposits can opt for cool sculpting in Dubai. Areas that can have extra fat include the abdomen, arms, breast, thighs, chin, and groin. However, the major goal of the cool sculpting(fat-freezing) in Dubai is to destroy the fat cells non-surgically and improve the body appearance aesthetically.
How to Choose the Right Surgeon for Cool Sculpting
A successful cool sculpting procedure depends on choosing the right surgeon, who is an expert in facial contouring procedures. A good cool sculpting surgeon in Dubai should not only be experienced but should be board-certified as well. Other characteristics of a good plastic surgeon include:
- He should have good reviews regarding his previous work from the candidates.
- He should be able to show the previous results of his surgeries through photographs.
- He must have a keen artistic eye.
- He focusses on candidate’s safety and care.
- He has a good aesthetic sense.
Note that cool sculpting is performed by a plastic surgeon and not by medical aestheticians.
After selecting the right surgeon for your cool sculpting procedure, the next step is to have a detailed consultation session with him. You and your surgeon are going to discuss the possible outcomes of the procedure, don’t forget to mention your expectations and the reason behind the procedure. You will discuss the whole process, including cool sculpting cost in Dubai and the general details involved in the procedure.
Right before the non-surgical procedure, the surgeon is going to examine your medical history and is also going to check that if you are or have had been on medications of any sort. He is going to examine your body physically; he will check the areas to be treated. He will take photographs too, to compare the results after the treatment.
Before the cool sculpting procedure or any other procedure, whether surgical or non-surgical, you must have a healthy lifestyle. You must follow a proper diet plan and exercise regularly under professional supervision. You should stop smoking at least five weeks before the surgery. Alcohol consumption should also be halted four weeks before the surgery. You should also avoid all the drugs that include aspirin, and anti-inflammatory medicines should also be avoided to reduce the risk of excess bleeding during the surgery. You should take a bath twenty-four hours before the surgery to make sure that the target areas are clean and germ-free.
The procedure lasts for one to three hours depending upon the number of sites to be treated.
It is performed on an Outpatient basis and requires no anesthesia.
During the procedure, the plastic surgeon is going to choose the right cooling device depending upon the targeted sites. A gel pad will be applied before the device is moved along the targeted area. Cool sculpting applicators are the cooling devices, and the temperature is controlled according to the specific requirement of each area. Along with mild cooling, you will also feel suction from the device. After the pad is applied, the surgeon massages the targeted areas to ensure the proper breakdown of the frozen tissues. The absorption of the frozen (destroyed) fat cell gets accelerated through this massage. The message can cause slight discomfort to some candidates.
Some clinics have multiple devices at the same time, and in this way, you don’t have to undergo an extra treatment. It must be kept in mind that cool sculpting is not a weight loss procedure; it just removes the excess fat. A candidate is always asked to reduce his weight before undergoing this surgery.
There are certain other invasive and non-invasive procedures for fat reduction treatments which can be used as an alternative to the cool sculpting, these include;
- Liposuction—- The fat deposits are extracted by inserting a cannula in the targeted sites through incisions. The cannula moves in a back-and-forth motion and sucks all the fat pockets.
- Laser Therapy— In this procedure, a laser is used to remove the excess fat deposits in certain areas, and skin is tightened afterward. This is used for minor improvements.
- Radio Frequency Body Treatment-— It is a pain-free treatment, in which fat deposits from localized areas are removed, and skin is tightened. It is also used for minor improvements.
- Mesotherapy-— Microinjections (comprising of enzymes, minerals, and vitamins) are used to remove excess fat deposits and cellulite in this treatment.
- Lipolysis-— The safe and the most effective non-surgical procedure that also uses micro-injections to remove fats, and in this procedure, injections are administered in the subcutaneous layer of fat.
Very less time is required by the candidates to get recover after this procedure. You will have minor redness and soreness in the treated area, but these side effects will subside within a week. You can have swelling over the treated area, but it is not going to be that much and will settle within a few days. During the treatment, you can feel sensations of intense cold and muscle cramping because of the suction.
Over the next 7 – 10 days, the patient will have follow-up appointments with the plastic surgeon to keep track of the healing process.
It is important to follow any guidelines or instructions given by the plastic surgeon for faster healing and to avoid complications or risks.
You should take all the medicines prescribed by your doctor. Your body will keep on flushing out the fat cells, and this process will take place for six months post-procedure. You should drink more water after the procedure, as it will speed up the flushing out process. You will be able to resume your all activities from the very next day of the procedure. You should exercise regularly and maintain a stable weight. You should take a proper and balanced diet under professional supervision. You should take the prescribed pain killers in case of nerve twinges and muscle cramps. You should wear loose and comfortable clothes to prevent swelling.
