EUGENE, Ore., Jan. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- As a board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Kiya Movassaghi is no stranger to patients who want a slimmer, more toned physique. Now, there are more options than ever for getting rid of unwanted fat, and CoolSculpting® is quickly becoming a favorite.
A safe, nonsurgical treatment, CoolSculpting effectively "freezes" up to 25% of fat cells in the treatment area using proprietary Cryolipolysis technology. In a matter of weeks, the body naturally eliminates the fat cells to reveal a more slender shape.
"CoolSculpting is a breakthrough treatment that can provide amazing results for the right patients, but it is not intended as a weight-loss tool," Dr. Movassaghi emphasizes. "The patient who will get the most out of treatment will be at or near their ideal weight; they will have small areas of pinchable fat and a desire to further contour their body without needing significant fat removal."
Because CoolSculpting is best used on patients who are happy with their overall size and shape other than a few areas of fat, Dr. Movassaghi has found that it is an ideal option for athletes.
"Oregon is full of athletes. We have many avid outdoorsmen, triathlon participants, and hiking enthusiasts," says Dr. Movassaghi. "But even very fit people can accumulate undesirable fat in certain areas of the body, particularly as they get older."
Those who are active generally have low body fat, but that doesn't mean they are immune to excess fat deposits. As we age, diet- and exercise-resistant fat tends to accumulate in very specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, outer thighs, and flanks—areas that are easily treatable with CoolSculpting.
Because CoolSculpting is non-invasive and requires no downtime, athletes can return to their active lifestyles almost immediately. "After a CoolSculpting treatment, regular activity can resume as soon as the patient feels ready," points out Dr. Movassaghi. "In fact, maintaining a regular diet and exercise routine helps keep results looking great for the long term. For athletes in Eugene, CoolSculpting may be the perfect fit."
For patients interested in learning more about this breakthrough fat reduction treatment, Movassaghi Plastic Surgery will be hosting a CoolSculpting event at their practice on January 29, 2015 from 4:00 PM to 6:30 PM.
