Coolsculpting Alternatives

In many individuals, certain areas of fat distribution do not respond to traditional methods of exercise and diet modification.  Surgical or non-surgical treatments may be the only option to achieve the look you desire.

While the non-surgical treatment CoolSculpting is well known and time tested, there are other  alternatives available at Schaffer Plastic Surgery. Whether the treatment is non-surgical or surgical, Dr. Christopher Schaffer is an American Board of Plastic Surgery certified surgeon who will provide you with the safe, personalized care that you deserve.

Power Assisted Liposuction: A Gentle Approach to Fat Removal

Power-assisted liposuction is an alternative option to the traditional liposuction procedure, during which the surgeon  aspirates unwanted fat in a particular area of the body. When performed by an experienced plastic surgeon, power-assisted liposuction can gently and easily remove unwanted fat from a targeted area. Dr. Schaffer has extensive experience with this particular procedure, making him one of the most qualified surgeons in the area offering it.

Rohrer Aesthetic Body Tone Device: Advanced Muscle Toning Solution

The Rohrer Aesthetic Body Tone Device is an advanced muscle and body toning device that can provide patients with a sculpted appearance after significant weight loss. By relying on electronic pulsing technology, this device can be applied to a targeted area in order to tone muscles and improve an individual’s appearance. Dr. Schaffer’s experience working with this device allows him to craft a personalized care plan for each individual patient. It is a non-invasive procedure with minimal side effects, making it the premier option to enhance muscle definition.

Post-Bariatric Contouring: Comprehensive Body Shaping after Weight Loss

Post-bariatric contouring are aesthetic surgery procedures that may require multiple procedures to be performed simultaneously. It is an ideal option for patients who have undergone weight loss surgery, as it helps to tighten skin and eliminate loose muscles that remain after significant weight loss. Dr. Schaffer is committed to providing every patient with personalized results, and his years of experience allow him to craft the best possible treatment plan for each patient. Post-bariatric contouring can include procedures such as the arm lift, thigh lift, upper body lift and lower body lift. Recovery can last for several weeks, depending on the procedures performed.

Surgical Alternatives for Body Contouring

Three other surgical CoolSculpting alternatives include Tummy Tucks, Brazilian Butt Lifts and Mommy Makeovers:

  • Tummy Tuck — Known medically as an abdominoplasty, the tummy tuck is an incredibly popular cosmetic surgery procedure. Dr. Schaffer’s years of experience performing this procedure allow him to tailor the plan for each patient’s unique anatomy, producing outcomes that restore youth and vitality. Recovery lasts for about 2 weeks.
  • Brazilian Butt Lift — Most often referred to as a BBL, this cosmetic surgery is designed to improve the shape and contour of the buttocks. Dr. Schaffer has extensive experience performing BBLs, and he provides patients with individual variations based on their anatomic needs. Recovery lasts for several weeks.
  • Mommy Makeover — The Mommy Makeover is actually a combination of several cosmetic surgery procedures designed to provide the individual patient with a rejuvenated appearance after pregnancy and childbirth. The Mommy Makeover can include procedures such as tummy tucks, breast lifts or augmentations and liposuction. Dr. Schaffer has been performing personalized Mommy Makeovers throughout his 20 plus year career. The recovery time can vary based on the number of procedures performed but typically lasts about 2 to 6 weeks.
