Zeltiq™ CoolSculpting in Richmond, Indiana
Allure Center for Plastic Surgery proudly offers this revolutionary, noninvasive procedure that melts away unwanted fat!
Dr. S. Travis Greathouse offers CoolSculpting by Zeltiq™, a new and exciting way to reduce stubborn, localized fat that is resistant to diet and exercise from "love handles," the abdomen, hips and thighs. This procedure is intended for both men and women. It is a non-invasive means of reducing fat using directed tissue cooling, and it does not require anesthesia.
CoolSculpting by Zeltiq™ is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to reduce unwanted fat without surgery. It is a safe and clinically proven method that does not harm the skin. This approach is based on extensive scientific research demonstrating that fat cells are more susceptible to extreme cold, and can be selectively, painlessly and permanently destroyed in a process known as Cryolipolysis™ (cold lipolysis).

During the procedure, Dr. S. Travis Greathouse uses a noninvasive applicator that acts as a gentle vacuum to draw the skin and fat cells between cooling panels. CoolSculpting by Zeltiq™ then cools the fat cells. The cells crystallize, break apart and are safely metabolized (i.e., passed through your body's natural detoxification system) over a period of weeks after your treatment, leaving the surrounding cells unaffected. The procedure lasts about one hour per targeted area. Because this is not a surgical procedure, there is no downtime and minimal discomfort.
CoolSculpting by Zeltiq™ is not intended to treat obesity. Ideal candidates are near their optimal body weight, eat healthy and exercise regularly, but still have pockets of fat that are resilient to diet and exercise. On average, Dr. S. Travis Greathouse's patients show a 22-percent reduction of fat in each treated area. Patients can start to see results as soon as three weeks after treatment, with the most dramatic results occurring between two to four months.
