Want More Body Shaping Options? Farrell Plastic Surgery Has You Covered!

 
When it comes to achieving your body shaping goals, you have choices. Whether you’d like to highlight rock hard abs or get rid of stubborn pockets of fat that just won’t go away, we offer several options to suit your unique needs safely and permanently. Now you can shape and contour many common trouble spots, including the abdomen, love handles, muffin top, back, inner and outer thighs, upper arms, and the double chin, with one of the following treatments:

Liposuction

Liposuction can provide the sculpted figure that you’re looking for with just a single treatment. Now considered the traditional fat-removal technique, liposuction is a tried and true method for getting results. The procedure involves a small incision, and a thin cannula is inserted underneath the skin in order to remove the offending fat cells. This “one and done” treatment can provide immediate results with only a limited recovery period. Liposuction is often combined with a variety of other contouring procedures like the tummy tuck, arm lift, and neck lift. Although this is a surgical procedure that requires anesthesia, most patients can usually return to light work after a few days and get back to normal activities after two to three weeks.

CoolSculpting®

While liposuction may be the classic approach to body shaping, CoolSculpting is getting all of the attention these days. This completely non-invasive approach forgoes the incisions and anesthesia to give you targeted fat reduction. Just as the name suggests, the CoolSculpting device employs innovative cooling technology to essentially freeze unwanted pockets of fat away. There’s little, if any, discomfort during the procedure, and the treated cells are safely discarded through the body’s natural elimination process. Keep in mind that CoolSculpting results come over time as the body gradually breaks down the fat. To achieve the very best results, Dr. Farrell may recommend a series of at least two sessions.
