Banish bulges with fat removal in Sterling

Dr. Neeraja C. Mattay at Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc providing fat removal in Sterling

Bulges are a common complaint even among people who are considered to be at their ideal weight and who are physically fit. Rolls, bulge, and stubborn fat sometimes linger no matter how many times a week you go to the gym or how good you eat. Most trainers will say “you can’t spot reduce”, and they are right as it pertains to diet and exercise.

Back fat, love handles, “muffin top”, and other stubborn bulges affect both men and women today. Due to their mild nature, such concerns may not require surgery such as liposuction for elimination. Out of frustration, however, many people have considered this dramatic step. At Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc. patients need not live with unwanted fat nor must they do something as drastic as surgery. In many cases, CoolSculpting non-invasive cryolipolysis treatment works wonders to banish bulge.

Spot reducing with freezing temperature

Fat removal performed in our Sterling and Centreville offices incorporates extreme cold for optimal results. The CoolSculpting device has been designed based on scientific data revealing the precise temperature at which fat cells can be damaged. The beauty of the strategic cryoliposysis process is that only fat cells are targeted. Other tissues in the treatment area are undisturbed by the cool temperatures.

A CoolSculpting treatment may last from an hour to a few hours. As an area of fat is simultaneously suctioned and cooled between two panels, patients sit or lie back comfortably. Some read or watch a movie, others relax enough to doze off.

The results of CoolSculpting are not seen immediately following treatment. In fact, the skin overlying targeted fat may look red and slightly swollen as a result of suction and cooling. The real work occurs over the two to four months that follow treatment. As fat cells become affected by freezing, they crystallize and break down. The body then eliminates them naturally. As weeks pass, more improvement is noticed. Most patients experience about a 20 percent reduction in fat in the treated area.

Say goodbye to fat cells forever!

CoolSculpting does not shrink fat cells, it facilitates their death and elimination from the body. As the body does not grow more fat cells, these cells are gone forever. It is important, however, to maintain healthy eating and exercise habits in order to prevent the expansion of other fat cells in the area.

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.
