Eating healthy and regular exercise may not be enough to get rid of stubborn fat. When diet and exercise are not enough, Annapolis Plastic Surgery offers a range of treatments, including CoolSculpting, that can remove that stubborn, unwanted fat. It may sound confusing, but reducing fat is different from losing weight. Losing weight makes fat cells smaller but does not cause fat cells to go away. Diet and exercise may lead to weight loss through smaller fat cells, but will not eliminate fat cells. Medical and cosmetic treatments for fat removal or body sculpting actually reduce the number of fat cells in your body. While many fat-reducing procedures require surgery, CoolSculpting is the world’s first FDA-approved non-invasive treatment to reduce pockets of stubborn fat. This revolutionary procedure kills fat cells underneath the skin by freezing them to the point of elimination. CoolSculpting only affects the fat cells, leaving you with a healthy, natural appearance. Many patients find CoolSculpting appealing because there are no knives, no needles and no scars. New to our office, Dr. James Chappell was the first trained specialist in the Annapolis area to offer CoolSculpting. Dr. Chappell has been using this state-of-the-art technology since 2012 and has performed over 10,000 treatments. Patients at the Annapolis Plastic Surgery can feel comfortable knowing that they will be receiving the most advanced technology and highly experienced care from Dr. Chappell. Dr. Chappell will deliver precise cooling to the unwanted fat cells. The cells will then become crystallized, or frozen, and eventually die. Your body will naturally process out the dead fat cells, leaving a more sculpted body. Results from CoolSculpting are long-term because frozen fat cells are eliminated through the body naturally. Drs. Ambro and Chappell at Annapolis Plastic Surgery want to help you achieve the body you deserve.
