Can You Really Freeze Away Your Fat? Dr. Ryan Greene Explains How This is Now a Reality

CoolSculpting by Dr. Ryan Greene Fort Lauderdale and Weston - Image of Coolsculpting MachinesWe now live in a time when cosmetic treatments have become more effective, more attainable, and less invasive. Dubbed by Ryan Greene, MD, PhD, as ‘The Botox Effect,’ patients now demand procedures with big results and little downtime. Enter cryolipolysis, a procedure developed by Harvard scientists that helps patients to lose their fat without any surgery at all. Many know this procedure as CoolSculpting, which has become the hottest (ironically) fat reducing procedure in the world.

Cryolipolysis is based on the finding that when fat is frozen, the fat cells respond by dying through a process known as apoptosis. Believe it or not, the idea was spawned from the observation that children who sucked on popsicles had less cheek fat. This led to researchers at Harvard to elucidate the mechanism of this phenomenon. Fast forward a bit, and the CoolSculpting treatment was born. This treatment allows patients to undergo a short procedure where their fat is frozen without any surgery whatsoever. The results have been so impressive that CoolSculpting has become one of the fastest growing fat eliminating procedues.

So how does CoolSculpting work? According to Dr. Greene, an applicator is placed on the area of the fat bulge, which is then subjected to the cooling process for one hour. And as he explains, “This treatment is an incredible option for patients and has revolutionized non-invasive fat reduction. For those patients who don’t want to undergo surgery such as liposuction, this is an excellent alternative.” He is also quick to point out that there is an art to these treatments. “I really believe that our CoolSculpting center is achieving the best results out there. We have one of the busiest centers in South Florida, and our staff here is phenomenal. Everyone in the practice is dedicated to achieving the absolute best results.”

The benefits of CoolSculpting are far-reaching. For one, the treatments are very effective. Patients can expect that approximately 25% of fat is reduced after a given treatment, and patients are able to undergo multiple treatments. Dr. Greene points out that the patient satisfaction data has shown that CoolSculpting consistently has the highest patient satisfaction among all of the non-invasive fat removal treatments. There is also no downtime, and patients can even go the gym immediately after treatment. It is also an incredibly safe procedure with little discomfort.

Dr. Greene’s West Broward CoolSculpting Center is located in Weston, Florida. He has two CoolSculpting machines that allow patients to undergo treatment in half the time, which Dr. Greene calls “Dual Sculpting.” Patients come to his Center knowing that they are being treated at a Certified CoolSculpting Center with among the most experience in the U.S. According to Dr. Greene, “We offer a more personalized CoolSculpting approach for our patients, which they most certainly appreciate. Patients from all over South Florida are coming to our Center for a reason; not only are we achieving the best results, but we are doing it in the most professional, safe, and comfortable environment imaginable.”
