Baggy skin after Coolsculpting?

The amount of adipose tissue removed following Coolsculpting depends on many characteristics. Age, muscle mass, prior surgeries, diet and over all health. If the fat is reduced and the patient has stretched out skin from prior pregnancies or massive weight gain then it is highly unlikely that the tissue will contract back once the fat […]


Non Invasive Body Sculpting

Non surgical fat reduction technology has exploded. While the most definitive treatment is a tummy tuck, liposuction helps to reduce the greatest amount of fat. For the non surgical treatments Coolsculpting has a 4 year track record with millions of patients treated. The latest innovation in non invasive treatments is the SculpSure treatment. Each is […]


If you shop at Lane Bryant, is Coolsculpting for You?

Patients who have excess adipose tissue are candidates for Coolsculpting. The challenge is that with multiple treatments to reduce the thickness of layers of fat with the coolsculpting, the stretched out skin may pose another problem. This excess skin is optimally removed with a tummy tuck procedure. This does not preclude a patient from having […]

Specific techniques with either quilting sutures or sparing the scarpas fascia which has the most lymphatic drainage tissue in the abdominal wall deep to the skin. By preserving the scarpas fascia the bodies own internal drainage system can absorb […]

This may remove the fat cells but does not tighten the skin. Complete evaluation of the area to be treated may consider other non surgical treatments as well such as […]


PAH!! What to do?

Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia is a vexing and unusual sequela following Coolsculpting. While the incidence of this is very rare, with the treatments of Coolsculpting getting into the millions it is understandable why more cases are being reported. I have heard of cases from other physicians and even had a patient myself who was well documented […]


Medial thighs are tough

The skin overlying the medial thighs is very thin. When we perform medial thighplasty procedures the scars are an issue and often lead us to seek out other treatments which may result in sub optimal results. In the case of Coolsculpting consider combination treatments with other heat based therapies as an adjunct or even a replacement. Post […]


Tummy tuck. NO DRAIN, drainless tummy tuck

Tummy tuck without the use of drains is a novel concept which involves modifications to the classic tummy tuck procedure. It is not simply the same operation just without the use of drains. One of the modifications involves placing quilting sutures. While this is a widely used technique it too has some shortcomings. First, it […]
