Dr. Koneru (Advanced Concepts in Plastic Surgery) is first to bring this New “Cool” Approach to San Antonio and South Central Texas
SAN ANTONIO, TX, June 14, 2010. For those looking for a trimmer physique without the pain and recovery time of surgery, Dr. Suresh Koneru offers the Zeltiq Procedure, a new non-invasive body contouring procedure, at his practice – Advanced Concepts in Plastic Surgery of San Antonio, Texas. Gentle and effective, the Zeltiq Procedure uses an innovative method of precisely controlled cooling (Coolsculpting™) to help reduce unsightly fat bulges and pads that do not respond to diet and exercise.
Zeltiq is an advanced, non-invasive, cooling technology that targets and eliminates fat cells without painful needles or incisions. In just a few months, the Zeltiq Procedure reduces abdominal fat, love handles (flanks), or back fat without the pain and recovery time associated with needles, incisions and anaesthesia.
The science behind the Zeltiq Procedure is called Cryolipolysis, a break-through body sculpting technology developed by world-renowned dermatologists at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, MA, (an affiliate of Harvard Medical School). Their research showed that fat cells are naturally more vulnerable to the effects of cold than other surrounding tissues, and the Coolsculpting technique works painlessly and effectively on these problem areas.
Dr. Koneru explains that using advanced cooling to eliminate fat cells is much better than existing devices which utilize heat, sound waves or other mechanical techniques. The Zeltiq cooling technology is a more natural approach, inducing fat cells to undergo a process of natural, non-invasive removal which gradually reduces the thickness of the fat layer.
“What patients love about the Zeltiq procedure is that it’s a painless and relaxing way to get great results in a short amount of time. In just a few months of treatment using Zeltiq Coolsculpting, my patients see noticeable results and a better, more natural looking physique,” said Dr. Koneru. “This is great news for anyone who is reluctant to undergo a surgical invasive procedure in order to improve their body shape and appearance.”
Dr. Koneru treats patients in San Antonio, Austin, Houston and other cities in Central and South Texas. The Zeltiq Procedure is comfortable for most patients, and no pain medication is required. While undergoing the procedure, most patients keep themselves occupied by reading, working on a laptop, listening to music, or just relaxing. Also, there is no recovery time after the Zeltiq Procedure and patients usually resume their normal activities the same day, including work and exercise.
