A new technology called Zeltique™ eliminates fat cells by cooling them down, causing them to slowly die and reabsorb into the body. However, this method does not present immediate changes and may not be as effective for patients looking to remove larger volumes of fat. Here, an ASPS Member Surgeon explains the difference between this technology and traditional liposuction, and who the most ideal candidates for Zeltique™ are.
Disclosure: Dr. Lawrence Bass has received a discount on equipment as part of a research study conducted on Zeltique.
