Hot sun, cool waves, the sand between your toes, hitting the beach in the summertime is as American a tradition as baseball and apple pie. However, confidence in one’s body plays a major role in how much fun these trips can actually be. Reluctance to bare skin or be seen in a bathing suit may keep you from fully embracing the beach’s appeal. Luckily, Etre Cosmetic Dermatology and Laser Center is here to help!
We offer two options to our New Orleans patients when it comes to body contouring: CoolSculpting® and laser liposuction. Both are excellent for safe and effective fat reduction, but there are key differences in the invasiveness of the procedure and its required downtime that you should be aware of in order to choose which might be right for you.
CoolSculpting is a completely non-invasive, meaning there are no incisions and no surgery involved. Due to its non-invasive nature, CoolSculpting will require little to no downtime and results will appear gradually, over the course of a few months.
For patients interested in more dramatic results, Laser Liposuction is a surgical procedure that can provide greater reductions in fat and contours. The procedure does call for a brief recovery period (typically 1-2 days) and the need for a compression garment for a few weeks.
Etre’s world-class board certified dermatologists, Dr. Lisa Donofrio and Dr. Kyle Coleman, have years of success with these procedures and will walk you through the entire process during your initial consultation. No one size fits all, find out which option is best for you.
