CoolSculpting and DualSculpting -- Palm Beach Plastic Surgeons Discuss Non-Surgical Liposuction Alternatives

Doctors at Pinsky & Lickstein Plastic Surgery Say DualSculpting Can Reduce Overall Treatment Time While Helping Patients Get Rid of Excess Fat Without the Need for Invasive Surgery

WEST PALM BEACH, FL--(Marketwired - May 27, 2015) - For decades, surgical liposuction has served as a way for people to get rid of excess fat in areas that have proven resistant to diet and exercise. Board-certified Palm Beach plastic surgeons Mark Pinsky, MD and Dr. David Lickstein say liposuction may be necessary for some patients to achieve their goals, but not all of them. In fact, they say, advanced procedures such as CoolSculpting® and DualSculpting™ are helping both women and men who are looking to eliminate isolated pockets of excess fat do just that without the need for needles, incisions, or surgery of any kind.

Dr. Pinsky and Dr. Lickstein say CoolSculpting® is somewhat revolutionary in the field of cosmetic enhancement and body recontouring. The FDA-approved procedure involves a handheld device that is guided over the areas targeted for fat removal. Using a process called Cryolipolysis™, CoolSculpting® ultimately causes the excess fat cells to break down. The body's inflammatory response system can then filter the fat cells out through natural processes. The doctors at Pinsky & Lickstein Plastic Surgery say patients sometimes start seeing the effects about three weeks after the treatment, with optimal results typically apparent after two to three months. They note that CoolSculpting® can be very beneficial for areas such as the flanks (love handles), abdomen, inner and outer thighs, upper arms, and back.

Drs. Pinsky and Lickstein say one of the many advantages of CoolSculpting® is its non-invasive nature. Many of their patients relax during the procedure by watching television, reading a magazine, or even taking a nap. Once it's complete, the doctors say most patients return to work or other daily activities, without the need for recovery time. While CoolSculpting® could sometimes require multiple treatment sessions or a single, long period in the office to treat each target area, Drs. Pinsky and Lickstein say DualSculpting™ is a remedy to that. By using two CoolSculpting® systems in the same procedure, the doctors note that DualSculpting™ offers patients a way to decrease overall treatment time and maximize the results from a single appointment.

Dr. Pinsky and Dr. Lickstein say DualSculpting™ or CoolSculpting® procedures may be ideal for some, but not for others. They note that these treatments can be very useful for patients who are in relatively good shape but have certain areas exhibiting moderate amounts of excess fat that can be recontoured with CoolSculpting® techniques. Liposuction, the doctors say, may be a better alternative for patients who are affected by larger, more significant fat pockets. Drs. Pinsky and Lickstein say the best way for individuals to know if they are a candidate for DualSculpting™ or CoolSculpting® is to consult with an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate their needs and talk with them about their options.

Ultimately, Dr. Pinsky and Dr. Lickstein say, CoolSculpting® and DualSculpting™ are procedures that are becoming more and more popular at their practice because they can help a growing number of patients who want to improve their body contours without the downtime associated with surgery. The doctors say, for many patients, these treatments can fulfill their needs with permanent results, no recovery time, and effective outcomes that address problems even the strictest gym routines and dietary habits can't resolve.
