CoolSculpting Now for a Spring Body

If you regret the overindulgences of the holiday season as swimsuit weather approaches, now’s the perfect time to do something about it. 

Gotham Plastic Surgery is midtown Manhattan’s exclusive choice for CoolSculpting. This non-surgical procedure allows you to rid yourself of fat deposits on your body’s most stubborn, diet-and-exercise-resistant areas. Gotham’s expert aesthetician, Jill Badalamente, can help you get ready to hit the beach or pool with confidence. 

The Cool Solution

coolsculpting new york results CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis, a non-surgical treatment performed in a doctor’s office using cold temperatures to eliminate fat cells from your body. This technique has been used in Europe for years and has also gained popularity in the United States with men and women alike. 

CoolSculpting has been featured on television shows such as The Doctors and Good Morning America. The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) has named CoolSculpting one of their “10 Anti-Aging Technologies to Watch.”  

The device used during your CoolSculpting procedure delivers freezing temperatures through your skin to the body’s fat cells. Using this technique, the fat cells are essentially crystallized and gradually die, resulting in fat reduction over time. The dead fat cells are naturally metabolized and eliminated by your body’s natural metabolic processes. Since fat freezes at a higher temperature than other cells, the surrounding skin and tissue are not affected by the treatment.

This procedure is ideal for people seeking to remove localized fat deposits without surgery or other invasive methods. CoolSculpting can be used on any body area that has proven resistant to your weight loss efforts.

After treatment, patients typically see initial results within four weeks and can expect to achieve their desired body contour within three months.

Your Problem Areas – Solved

Because of our specialized attachments, CoolSculpting can effectively treat and eliminate stubborn fat anywhere it has settled on the body, including:

  • liposuction body contouring diagram in new york Abdomen
  • Stomach
  • Love handles
  • Muffin top
  • Flanks
  • Beneath the buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Above the knee
  • Back fat
  • Arms
  • Gynecomastia (male breasts)
  • Double Chin 
  • Neck

The Natural Approach

The fat cells in the treatment area are frozen immediately during the CoolSculpting procedure. However, results gradually appear several weeks to a few months following the procedure. Changes occur over time as your body naturally absorbs the crystallized fat cells.

Although only one treatment per area is all that is needed in many cases, patients often choose to have CoolSculpting performed on additional body areas after seeing the incredible results! They can also have a second treatment on any area where they wish to reduce fat even more. 

Unless you choose to tell people about your CoolSculpting procedure, no one will suspect you’ve had anything done. They’ll simply assume your fabulous results are the product of your enviable willpower and your diet and workout regimen.

Nonsurgical – No Downtime

CoolSculpting is a completely non-invasive procedure with minimal risk and no required downtime. The most common side effects are numbness, tingling, and minor bruising in the targeted area. These effects are temporary and will resolve within a few weeks.

CoolSculpting Alternatives

The CoolSculpting procedure is ideal for individuals who are mostly satisfied with their current body shape but would like to see improvement in specific stubborn areas.

In that case, you can do no better than working with  Douglas Steinbrech, MD, FACS,—a nationally recognized expert in minimally invasive and surgical body sculpting procedures. Among these procedures are tummy tucks, breast augmentation, mommy makeovers, liposuction, and his proprietary BodyBanking®.

While both CoolSculpting and liposuction eliminate stubborn fat, the procedures are quite different. Liposuction is surgery that removes large amounts of fat and dramatically contours the body. Because liposuction is a surgical procedure, you’ll need to allow downtime for recovery afterward.

If you want to take body sculpting to the next level, Dr. Steinbrech’s Body Banking® procedure—which achieves stunning results using the selective fat transfer process—is an especially popular option with his male clientele.

 Selective fat transfer involves the collection of high-quality fat during liposuction. Dr. Steinbrech then injects the harvested, purified fat beneath the patient’s skin in a series of injections using a mini cannula. The areas of the body receiving the strategically placed fat will appear more muscular and defined.

What’s Hot in Body Contouring: Real Housewives Spill

Featuring jaw-dropping drama and over-the-top lifestyles, The Real Housewives franchise is among the most popular in reality TV. It’s no secret that many (if not most) of the Real Housewives cast members have had plastic surgery in some form, from liposuction to breast augmentation and buttock implants.

Focus on the Tummy

New York Abdomen Liposuction Body Sculpt The tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgery procedure that involves the removal of excess fat and skin and the tightening of weakened abdominal muscles to flatten and shape a protruding abdomen and waist.

The procedure is beneficial for patients who have stretched skin and muscles due to pregnancy or considerable weight loss. Liposuction alone may be helpful for patients with only localized areas of fat and no excess skin.

Childbirth is one of the most meaningful experiences in a woman’s life. Even while enjoying motherhood, women often wish they could get their pre-pregnancy body back. After having children, women are often left with sagging breasts and enlarged areolas, less definition in the waistline, a sagging abdomen, and stretch marks. 

Cosmetic surgery can help restore youthful contours to the breasts and abdomen – often at the same time. A combination of procedures often referred to as the “mommy makeover” adds procedures like a breast lift, breast reduction, and liposuction to the tummy tuck for a dramatic result. 

Pregnancy leaves many women with stubborn fat pockets in the lower abdomen and decreased definition in the waistline. Women who’ve undergone a C-section often have an area of fat remaining above the surgical scar. In these cases, liposuction can help remove excess fat from the abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, and waist. Liposuction can effectively remove fat deposits after pregnancy, or anytime you discover stubborn pockets of fat, for a sleeker shape.

Breasts and Backsides

breast augmentation before and after Breast augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the United States—and certainly a favorite among The Real Housewives cast. This procedure places implants into the breast for a fuller, more shapely look.

Breast augmentation can be an excellent option for women dissatisfied with their breast size or those who’ve noticed changes in their breasts from breastfeeding, weight loss, pregnancy, or the aging process. For asymmetrical breasts, this procedure can help provide a balanced look. 

Although breast augmentation will enhance the shape and size of the breasts, it can’t significantly lift drooping breasts. We frequently recommend a combination of breast augmentation and a breast lift to address this concern.

Our New York City plastic surgery clinic offers a variety of breast implant options, depending on a patient’s specific needs. Your procedure will be tailored to your particular desires and body proportions for a beautiful, natural result. Implants can be round or tear-shaped, and a variety of implant types are available.

The Brazilian butt lift has been a popular plastic surgery procedure since the early 2000s and was another favorite of The Real Housewives and other celebrities. However, the procedure has fallen out of favor in the last several years, with record lows in the number of procedures performed. 

Dr. Steinbrech offers his exclusive procedure, BodyBanking®, a safe and effective technique that enhances specific areas of the body while reducing others. Since Dr. Steinbrech tailors BodyBanking to the patient’s needs and goals, the technique produces excellent results for any patient.

Liposuction to the Next Level

liposuction before and after new york Liposuction can be ideal for body areas with stubborn fat deposits, including the abdomen, buttocks, chin, hips, knees, neck, thighs, upper arms, and waist.

Tumescent liposuction is a procedure that gently suctions out excess fat in predetermined areas using a cannula. While the procedure creates a slimmer and smoother appearance, there are limits on the effectiveness of fat removal in resculpting the body. 

Liposuction alone can’t create fuller breasts or shapelier buttocks. Dr. Steinbrech has improved on the typical liposuction procedure by adding another step that sculpts and shapes the body.

BodyBanking® involves performing liposuction in designated areas and then injecting the removed fat into other areas of the body to achieve the desired results.

After deciding to have her breast implants removed, Emily Simpson of The Real Housewives of Atlanta underwent a fat transfer procedure to add fullness to her breasts. Another cast member used a similar procedure to enhance her buttocks.  

Not Just for Housewives

No More ‘Dad Bod’: Liposuction Options for Men

Liposuction is an effective, popular procedure for removing unwanted fat from the face and body. Douglas Steinbrech, MD, FACS, of Gotham Plastic Surgery in New York City, is one of the nation’s most sought-after experts in men’s cosmetic surgery. His approach and techniques have been customized to the male anatomy. 

Multiple media sources — The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, The New York Times, NBC & ABC — have recognized Dr. Steinbrech as one of the nation’s top plastic surgeons for men.

The Facts About Men and Liposuction

liposuction for men before and after in new york

Liposuction is currently the number one cosmetic surgery chosen by men.

The ideal male physique is typically depicted as trim and athletic, with a broad chest and shoulders, a flat abdomen, and narrow hips and waist. However, the aging process can cause fat to accumulate around the chest, waist, abdomen, lower back, and along the chin and neck.

Men often seek liposuction to eliminate stubborn fat that has proven resistant to diet and exercise. Liposuction can help sculpt these areas into a more youthful, leaner, athletic appearance — achieving a toned and defined look.

Liposuction is also frequently used to treat gynecomastia and pseudo-gynecomastia to reduce excess male breast tissue.

Men vs. Women

The liposuction procedure is essentially the same for males and females, although fat deposits on the male physique often appear in different areas than on the female body.

Many of Dr. Steinbrech’s patients at Gotham Plastic Surgery in New York City, NY, are men. Dr. Steinbrech’s experience and innovation in cosmetic procedures for men make him uniquely qualified to help achieve your desired results.

Liposuction Options

liposuction for men before and after in new york

Popular liposuction techniques include tumescent liposuction and ultrasound-assisted liposuction. Compared to traditional liposuction methods, these options offer more precise fat removal and quicker recovery times. 

During tumescent liposuction, a mixed solution of saline, lidocaine, and a small amount of adrenaline (to decrease bruising and bleeding), is injected to ease the removal of fat. 

Ultrasound-assisted liposuction involves the application of ultrasonic energy to liquefy the fat before removal.

Tumescent liposuction is the most commonly used technique, primarily when fat removed from one area will then be used to sculpt or enhance another area of the body. 

What to Expect from the Procedure

You may be given local anesthesia, general anesthesia, or an epidural. Small incisions are made in the treatment area, through which a narrow, blunt-tipped tube known as a cannula is inserted. The surgeon manipulates the cannula to disrupt the fat cells, which are then suctioned out of the body.

Liposuction typically takes between 1-3 hours, depending on the size and number of treatment areas and the amount of fat being removed. 

Expect to experience some bruising, pain, and swelling. Your surgeon may prescribe pain medication for your comfort and antibiotics to help reduce the risk of infection.

Patients must wear a compression garment for several weeks following their procedure to control swelling and help support the body’s new contours. Swelling and bruising generally subside within about three weeks. 

You’ll see an immediate change in your body shape after your procedure, with continued improvements becoming visible as swelling diminishes. Most patients resume work within a few days, although strenuous activity should be avoided for 2-4 weeks.

A healthy diet and exercise regimen will help you maintain your results. 

Adding Body Banking for a Full Contouring Experience

Body banking with fat transfer to the pecs and shoulders by Dr. Steinbrech. After surgery, abdomen is more chiseled and upper body is more contoured.

The combination of a slowing metabolism and the aging process can make it challenging to achieve your ideal body through diet and exercise alone. 

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Steinbrech offers patients at Gotham Plastic Surgery his exclusive BodyBanking® procedure. During this procedure, Dr. Steinbrech redistributes the fat to sculpt and contour other areas of the body, such as the pectoral, bicep, or gluteal areas. This innovative method of body contouring, combined with his MuscleShadowing® technique, can transform your body and help you attain your aesthetic goals. 

Is Male Liposuction Right For You?

The best candidates for liposuction have realistic expectations, are within a healthy weight range, but are bothered by stubborn fat deposits in specific body areas. Results are best on skin that has a healthy elasticity.

If you smoke, it’s strongly recommended that you quit well before your procedure to facilitate quicker healing and reduce the risk of complications.

Liposuction is not recommended if you have diabetes, a weak immune system, heart disease, or other major health problems.
