As summer lingers before us, many of our patients at 8 West Cosmetic Surgery are beginning to inquire about their options – both surgical and non-surgical – for reducing fat and achieving the body of their dreams. Whatever your budget or ability for downtime, we offer options for reducing fat that can fit within your lifestyle and bringing you closer to looking and feeling amazing.
Like a non-surgical alternative to liposuction, Coolsculpting® is a non-invasive, modern procedure that uses a process called cryolipolysis (or fat-freezing) to eliminate fat and provide greater contour in desired areas. Coolsculpting delivers controlled and precise cooling to fatty areas, cooling the fat cells to the point of destruction, which are then eliminated naturally through the body roughly 4 weeks later. There is no downtime involved with Coolsculpting.
Offered exclusively at 8 West Cosmetic Surgery, DualSculpting is the same process performed simultaneously on different sides of your body.
If the face is your greater concern and you are interested in a non-surgical procedure with little downtime, then facial slimming might be for you. Depending on your facial anatomy, however, this non-surgical procedure may be combined with surgical procedures to acquire the best results possible. Non-surgical facial slimming allows patients to return back to normal activities immediately, while a surgical form of facial slimming may result in bruising and swelling for up to one week.
The following features can be addressed with facial slimming with a varying procedure for each:
Whether due to genetics, aging, or pregnancy, a mini tummy tuck is the solution for a stretched-out abdomen that cannot be addressed with a non-invasive procedure like Coolsculpting. A mini tummy tuck is a modified complete tummy tuck that corrects the appearance of excess skin and fat near the abdominal area. This procedure is ideal for those who have less excess skin and fat and who do not have substantially extended abdomens. Liposuction is often used in conjunction with this surgical procedure, which has less downtime and scarring than a complete tummy tuck.
The complete tummy tuck provides dramatic results for patients with a more extended abdomen and more excess skin, addressing the skin, fat, and muscle. When combined with liposuction, results on the abdomen and the flanks are dramatic.
