This 61-year-old man was looking for a nonsurgical solution to his love handles. Excess fat on the flanks can be difficult to conquer with only diet and exercise, and can make people feel uncomfortable and not fully satisfied with their bodies. This patient searched for a Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon to help him contour his body and achieve a slimmer appearance.
During his consultation with one of our board-certified surgeons at Marina Plastic Surgery Associates, this patient learned about his options for nonsurgical body contouring. He decided on CoolSculpting® by ZELTIQ® to reduce his love handles. His surgeon explained that CoolSculpting uses a controlled cooling process to target fat cells without causing damage to surrounding skin and tissue.
This patient was able to return to his daily activities immediately after treatment. Used as an alternative to liposuction in Los Angeles, CoolSculpting requires no incisions and no recovery time. He returned to our practice shortly after his first treatment to share his results and to have pictures taken of his improved body contour.
