If you are like most people, no matter how much you diet and exercise, you still have an area or two that just doesn’t seem to shrink the way you want it to. That annoying little jiggle or unsightly roll can detract from the appearance of an otherwise fit and healthy body.
Perhaps this is why liposuction is one of the Boston area’s most popular cosmetic surgery procedures. The idea of permanently removing stubborn, unwanted pockets of fat appeals to women and men who want to look more toned and feel better about themselves. Newer, non-invasive technologies may broaden the appeal of liposuction – or liposculpture – even further.
SkinCare Physicians is one of the first practices in the world to offer Zeltiq™, a safe, comfortable, nonsurgical fat removal technology that has the cosmetic surgery community buzzing with excitement. The Zeltiq approach utilizes a patented method called Cryolipolysis™, which freezes and destroys fat cells without harming the skin or other tissue. The 2 to 3 hour session – which requires no incisions, no anesthesia, and no recovery time – is completely non-invasive, and allows patients to resume their normal activities immediately following their procedure.
SkinCare Physicians is among only a handful of centers worldwide performing the Zeltiq procedure. Our practice has done pioneering research with this innovative technology, making us uniquely qualified to offer this service to our patients. Based on the results that we have seen, and the interest that is being generated, Zeltiq may be the biggest liposuction innovation in recent history.
