Humans have long frozen things to maintain their youthful verve, from flash-freezing fruit at the peak of ripeness to slushy-freezing the brain to preserve times-tables proficiency. Achieve a cool, youthful physique without bathing in frozen treats with today’s Groupon: for $299, you get one Zeltiq CoolSculpting treatment for one site in selected body areas, including a complimentary consultation, at the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery (a $700 value). This treatment can be used on the patient's love handles, abdomen, back, thighs, or chest. Treatment on two or three sites may be needed to cover a full body area.
At the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin draw on their high-pedigree medical educations and years of professional experience to dissipate fat cells with noninvasive cosmetic procedures that don't injure the skin. After undergoing a medical consultation during an initial visit, patients return for one hour of treatment with the FDA-approved Zeltiq CoolSculpting system. The machine targets a selected site of stubborn body fat, cooling it like a concentrated beam of smooth jazz and leather jackets. Several days following the procedure, the cooled fat cells in the region extrude their content into the lymphatic system, where it can be cleared away naturally. After one treatment, patients may see an average of 22% fat reduction in the treated site, preparing them to wriggle through the tubes of children’s playplaces without first bathing in vaseline. Patients typically see full results three–four months following the procedure.
