CoolSculpting® now available at Marshall Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery

Breakthrough technology freezes away fat cells


HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – The physicians at Marshall Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery are now offering CoolSculpting, the world’s leading non-invasive fat removal treatment.

CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared medical procedure that freezes away unwanted fat for good without surgery or downtime. Treated, or crystallized, fat cells are naturally eliminated from the body using controlled, cold technology. Patients should start to see results in as early as three weeks and will experience the most dramatic results between one and three months.

“CoolSculpting is clinically proven, safe and effective,” said Farid B. Mozaffari, M.D., FACS of Marshall Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and an associate professor with the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine. “It allows our patients, both male and female, to experience the benefits of fat removal without needles, knives or anesthesia.”

The CoolSculpting process is based on the science of Cryolipolysis®. A specially designed cooling applicator cup uses vacuum pressure to draw the tissue between the cooling panels. The procedure can be used to treat the abdomen, flanks (love handles), inner and outer thighs and submentum (double chin).

For more information or to schedule a free consultation, call Marshall Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, located at 5185 U.S. Route 60, Suite 26, in Huntington, at 304-691-8910.
