Led by Yale graduate Dr. Young Cho, Integrated Plastic Surgery’s team of aesthetic augmenters mold bodies into sleek new frames with FDA-approved Zeltiq contouring technology. During the appointment, a trained professional wields a chilly wand that sends a wave of cold temperature to overfed cells in a targeted attempt to shrink and flush fat from the body. The noninvasive treatment may exorcise the ghosts of lasagnas past from the lower abdomen ($1,500), love handles, lower or mid back, upper arms, or thighs ($600+/side; $1,200+ total). Patients may experience slight discomfort during the procedure, but like the embarrassment of calling your teacher "grandpa," the feeling usually fades within the first 10 minutes. The anesthesia-free session generally results in no downtime, allowing patients to return to normal activities right away. Zeltiq is ideal for patients within 10–15 lbs. of their healthy weight and for individuals who have maintained a stable weight with no dramatic weight loss over the past six months.
