Are you bothered by stubborn fat on your thighs, tummy, flanks, bra roll or arms? Did you consider liposuction, but could not afford the downtime that comes with surgery? Fortunately, improvements in technology have made it a reality to achieve non-surgical fat reduction through a ground-breaking procedure: Coolsculpting®. Coolsculpting® is a technology that safely and effectively freezes fat to improve the contour of unsightly bulges of the body that are resistant to exercise and diet.
Treatment involves a reasonably comfortable procedure performed in the office without any medications. The affected areas are marked with a marking template. A cool gel sheet is applied to protect the skin. A suction cup device is applied to the problem area, which suctions the skin and fat in and gently freezes the fat. The crystallization of fat leads to permanent clearance of these fat cells and byproducts through the lymphatic system and liver. The permanent reduction in fat cells leads to a significant reduction in size of the bulge. More dramatic improvement can be achieved with two sessions separated one month apart. After the procedure, patients can drive themselves home and resume normal activities that same day. Most patients are candidates for CoolSculpting® unless they are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a cold-related blood disorder.
Bitar Cosmetic Surgery Institute is proud to be the first plastic surgery practice to introduce EMSCULPT™ in the northern Virginia and Washington DC area.
EMSCULPT™ is the first machine in the world that can build muscle and reduce fat to the abdomen and buttock areas with no surgery or downtime. While our current arsenal of non-surgical devices works well to reduce excess fat and tighten the skin without surgery, we have not seen any device other than EM Sculpt that has been clinically proven to build muscles.
EMSCULPT™ targets problem areas by using high-intensity focused magnetic energy (HIFEM) to stimulate the muscle contractions, building muscle and burning unwanted fat. This stimulation is said to mimic the effect of 20,000 squats/sit-ups in each 30-minute session.
Our institute is proud to offer the Exilis Ultra 360™ Non-Surgical Skin Tightening treatment. The Exilis Ultra 360™ is the only FDA cleared device to simultaneously combine radio frequency and ultrasound to tighten loose skin, address fine lines, and body concerns. This unique device uses controlled heating and cooling to ensure that energy is delivered to various depths of the tissue. This process creates collagen production, resulting in skin tightening, smoothing, and contouring of troublesome areas. With the utilization of 5 different applicator tips, this device can treat any area of the body head to toe.
Ultherapy® is a non-surgical treatment for the face, neck, and chest that uses ultrasound technology to lift and tighten loose skin without any downtime. Ultherapy® works overtime to strengthen the existing collagen layer deep under the skin and starts a process that produces new collagen.
Ultherapy® is the only non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses ultrasound to target the deep foundation below the skin. This is a completely non-invasive procedure and does not involve any cutting of the skin. Ultherapy® is also the only procedure that uses ultrasound imaging, which allows the patient to see the areas of the tissue that are being targeted during the treatment.
