What Is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical form of body contouring. As the name suggests, it’s a technology that emits intense cold that freezes fat cells without harming the skin or surrounding tissues. Fat has a higher freezing point than do other tissues, so CoolSculpting® won’t affect non-fat tissues. The frozen cells are eventually excreted by the body’s natural processes.
What Liposuction Technique Is Offered?
Most plastic surgeons in Colorado use the PAL technique, which is more formally known as Power-Assisted Liposuction. The PAL technique involves using a handheld device that causes the cannula to oscillate back and forth 4000 times in a minute. It breaks up the fat cells more quickly than does a conventional cannula, and it allows the surgeon to remove them more quickly.
Liposuction is almost always an outpatient procedure. The plastic surgeon will administer a “tumescent” solution that will numb the treatment site and reduce bleeding by constricting the blood vessels before performing the procedure. The plastic surgeon will then make an incision and insert the cannula.
What Is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a common condition in which a boy or man develops feminine-looking breasts. The breasts either contain too much fat, or too much fat and too much breast tissue. The procedure chosen will depend on the type of tissue involved and the severity of the patient’s condition.
If the patient has too much breast tissue, they will need to undergo surgery to remove it. Any excess fat tissue will be removed through liposuction. Most patients can return to work a few days after the operation, but they should wait at least ten days engaging in strenuous exercise.
