Body Sculpting Q&A

What is body sculpting?

Body sculpting is a term used to describe treatments that permanently reduce unwanted body fat using either hot or cold temperatures. CoolSculptingⓇ is an example of an option that uses extremely cold temperatures to destroy fat cells. 

Your body has a limited number of fat cells, and that number remains fairly constant throughout your life. Each of those cells has the ability to expand or contract as needed to accommodate more or less fat. When you gain weight, you aren’t manufacturing more fat cells, the ones you have are simply expanding. 

 

How does body sculpting work?

The body sculpting options available from Dr. Moradzadeh use heat or cold to damage fat cells. There is no need for anesthesia or advance preparation, you simply arrive for your appointment and remove any clothing covering the treatment area. 

He places the treatment device over the area of focus. When the treatment platform is turned on, it sends energy into the deeper layers of your skin. The surface layers remain at a comfortable temperature. 

Once a certain temperature is reached, the walls of a portion of treated fat cells are compromised. That causes the entire cell to collapse, releasing stored fat. The fat and the rest of the damaged cells are absorbed and processed through your lymphatic system. 

Once gone, those fat cells will not return. This is what makes body sculpting such a popular treatment option, as you can selectively refine the curves of your body. 

Body sculpting systems include CoolSculpting, truSculptⓇ iD, truSculptⓇ flex, and BodyTiteⓇ.

 

Why choose body sculpting over surgical procedures like liposuction?

One of the reasons body sculpting is so sought after is the ability to change the shape of your body without anesthesia, invasive procedures, or lengthy recovery time. 

You can resume normal activities immediately after your sessions, and there is no need to limit your normal activity levels. 

Body sculpting offers impressive results without the risks inherent in any surgical procedure. You don’t have to worry about complications with anesthesia, there is no risk of infection, and no need to manage pain medications while you recover.
