It’s a new year, and time for a new you. Lots of people list getting in shape and losing weight as their New Year’s resolution, but what happens when you cannot get the results you want from diet and exercise alone?

Non Surgical Procedures

The love handles and a muffin top are the most common problem areas for both men and women. One great way to slim down problem areas without going under the knife is through a system called CoolSculpting. This non-surgical procedure is made for any areas where you can pinch the tissue.

The procedure works by cooling and stressing your tissue. This can lead to a 20 to 40 percent reduction in the problem area.

If you’re in need of less correction and just want to get rid of a few inches, undergoing a mini tummy tuck or abdominal liposuction could be ideal for you.

Both of these procedures are excellent to improve the appearance of excess fat or loose skin and only take about one to two hours to complete.

You can return to your job in as little as a week and light activity within about three days of the procedure.
