The elusive slim waist may seem like an increasingly impossible task the older you get. For many, despite having a healthy diet and exercise plan in place, stubborn areas of fat still stick around in the form of love handles and a muffin top. That stubborn fat refuses to leave your waist without a fight. Thankfully at Northwest Face & Body, our skilled team of cosmetic surgeons are prepared to join that fight alongside you with two amazing treatment options that are sure to scare away any lingering fat.

Fat Removal with Liposuction

Liposuction is an effective treatment option for our Kirkland clients that have fat deposits on the midsection. At Northwest Face & Body, it is performed by our very own Dr. Allegra, who has over 20 years of experience – so you know that you are in good hands.Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure designed to suction the fat away from your stomach and waist. This simple procedure may surprise you how easy it is! Dr. Allegra will administer local anesthesia to the targeted area to make sure the area is numb and you are comfortable. Then Dr. Allegra will sculpt your waist by removing fat through a very small cannula. The small holes created to fit both the anesthesia and the cannula are so tiny that stitches are not necessary (yay!). Once she is finished defining your waist, you will be given compression padding to help allow your body to heal.

Freeze the Fat Away with CoolSculpting®

Another exciting way to successfully contour the body is through our fat freezing CoolSculpting treatment. This procedure is a great option as it is completely non-invasive, no downtime is required, and can help many define or redefine your waist.You might be wondering if CoolSculpting really freezes fat? Yes, it does! The fat freezing technology is known as cryolipolysis. CoolSculpting effectively freezes fat cells underneath the skin, causing their destruction. Once destroyed, your body will work to eliminate these cells over the next several weeks. The results are reduced fat in the targeted area with no additional downtime. You simply come into our office, receive the CoolSculpting treatment, go home, and wait for the slimming results.

Which Is Best For Me?

Maybe you want to define your waist, but aren’t sure which of these fantastic procedures will be best for your schedule, goals, and lifestyle. We would love to help you find the treatment that is right for you.Our clients that most benefit from liposuction have more fat that needs to be eliminated, are ok with very minimal scarring and wish to see the results quicker. Our clients that may benefit from CoolSculpting are not interested in a surgical procedure, able to pinch the amount of fat between their fingers, have the patience to see results, and love zero scarring!
