CoolSculpting is one of the most popular non-surgical fat reduction treatments in San Antonio. CoolSculpting treatments uses advanced fat-freezing technology to freeze unwanted fat that is expelled naturally through the body with no surgery or downtime. Dr. Hernandez performs this FDA approved fat reduction treatment at Eterna Cosmetic Surgery in San Antonio.
What Dr. Hernandez’s San Antonio patients find most attractive about CoolSculpting is how it can reduce the stubborn fat they haven’t been able to lose despite their efforts in the gym and the kitchen—all without surgery or downtime. With CoolSculpting, Dr. Hernandez can create the stunning, natural-looking curves men and women want for their bodies by reducing up to 20-40 percent of unwanted and stubborn fat.
Dr. Hernandez recommends CoolSculpting for men and women within 30 pounds of their ideal weight, but struggling with specific problem areas, such as a belly pooch (pot belly), love handles, or a muffin top. CoolSculpting can be effectively used to reduce fat around the abdomen, flanks, or thighs. If a double chin is your biggest concern, Dr. Hernandez also performs submental fat reduction with CoolSculpting’s CoolMini™ applicator, as well as Kybella™ injections.
The fat-freezing technology behind CoolSculpting is known as cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis causes underlying fat cells to freeze and crystallize (or die) without harming the surrounding skin or tissue. Your body then recognizes these dead fat cells and naturally flushes them from your body over time, resulting in a gradual slimming of the treated area.
Without having to make a single incision, Dr. Hernandez will carefully place a fold of skin and unwanted fat within the curved CoolSculpting arm. Once in place, the device will administer a deep-cooling to the treatment area, causing the underlying fat cells to freeze. This process is repeated throughout the full treatment site to ensure well-balanced results.
After your CoolSculpting treatment, you will be able to get back to your regular schedule without any downtime. Some swelling or redness of the treatment site is to be expected, but should fade within the first day.
The cryolipolysis process begins working as soon as your CoolSculpting session at our state-of-the-art San Antonio surgery center is finished. As the frozen fat cells are flushed from your body, you will begin noticing a gradual slimming of the treatment area. Most patients begin seeing results in as little three weeks with the most dramatic changes in their figure typically occurring between one to three months after CoolSculpting. Depending on your unique situation, Dr. Hernandez may recommend additional CoolSculpting sessions for the best, most natural-looking outcomes.
