Patients near Reston, Virginia discover cool body sculpting for fat reduction

Dr. Neeraja C. Mattay at Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc providing cool body sculpting for fat reduction

Many Americans face the battle with unwanted fat, a bulge or pouch they do not want. For some, it is just a few unwanted inches rather than a need for weight loss. You may have tried diet and exercise to successfully lose pounds but that has not removed that stubborn pocket of fat. Patients near Reston, Virginia have discovered CoolSculpting as a non-invasive body treatment option to eliminate stubborn fat.

What is the difference between weight loss and fat reduction?

Fat cells are stored within the body. When you lose weight, it does not change the number of fat cells. Rather the cells shrink or expand with weight loss or gain. During a weight loss program with diet and exercise, a person loses overall weight causing the cells to drain fat throughout the body. The same cells expand with weight gain.

Weight gain or loss affects the whole body, but usually not evenly. You cannot control where your body gains or loses weight. Even if you are at or close to your ideal weight, you still may not have the body shape you desire. You may have a muffin top or love handles.

Targeted fat reduction

CoolSculpting is precisely targeted to treat and destroy the bulges resulting in reduced inches. The procedure uses a handheld device that freezes fat cells causing them to die. Surrounding tissue is not harmed. It is an effective, reliable procedure.

CoolSculpting is not a weight loss method. It does not replace a healthy diet and exercise. Instead, it destroys fat cells in a targeted area such as the belly pouch. Once destroyed, the cells are processed and eliminated by the body over a few months. This procedure is designed to reduce fat cells in the treated area by 20-25%. Once destroyed, the cells are gone forever and will not regrow in that spot.

Dr. Neeraja C. Mattay Reviewed by Andy. K.

I recently had an appointment at the Sterling office. Booking the appointment over the phone was easy and fast. Upon arrival, I found the front desk staff to be pleasant and efficient. My wait time was minimal in the waiting room and well as in the back room, which is always a nice thing with any doctor's office. When I did meet with the doctor, we discussed my issues and overall felt like all my questions and concerns were thoroughly answered before I left. No complaints, and will definitely be coming back if need be and recommending this practice to my family and friends.
