Byrd Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Center, led by Dr. Marcia Byrd, is a premier facility providing the latest weight loss, body sculpting, facial rejuvenation and anti-aging treatments. Patients in Atlanta and Roswell, GA, who wish to enhance their appearance without having to undergo a surgical procedure with a plastic surgeon, may receive non-surgical treatment from Dr. Byrd.
She has more than two decades of experience in aesthetic procedures, and provides innovative non-invasive and minimally invasive techniques for patients who wish to achieve similar results that they would get having liposuction, but without having to undergo surgery. Over the decades, Dr. Byrd has developed her own trademark “Soft Beautification” procedure that combines body sculpting and anti-aging techniques to achieve customized outcomes for patients in and around Atlanta and Roswell, GA.
CoolSculpting is a unique, non-surgical treatment to reduce excess fat deposits from specific areas of the body. People who suffer from stubborn fat pockets that do not reduce with diet or exercise have the option to choose a procedure like liposuction or go for an innovative non-surgical option that can achieve similar results without surgery. CoolSculpting procedure is designed for such patients who are unable or unwilling to opt for body sculpting plastic surgery, and yet wish to achieve a smoother and leaner body contour.
CoolSculpting technology is revolutionary in the sense that it adopts a radically different treatment approach from most other non-surgical fat reduction treatments. Laser, thermal and ultrasound based treatments essentially employ heat energy to get rid of unwanted fat pockets. Dr. Byrd removes fat through liposuction while CoolSculpting technology makes use of a completely non-invasive fat freezing technology that freezes away targeted fat cells to their death, and eventual removal from the body in a natural manner.
Cost of Non-surgical Procedures
A surgical procedure performed by a cosmetic surgeon would typically cost more than a non-surgical procedure that is designed to achieve similar results without surgery. Most non-surgical procedures are performed without any need for general or even local anesthesia or IV sedation. This reduces the overall cost because the fee of anesthesiologist is not involved. Similarly, a plastic surgery procedure will cost more because of the intricate surgery, skills and resources involved in the procedure. The surgeon’s fee may be significantly high, depending on his or her experience, reputation and demand from the patients.
CoolSculpting procedure, on the other hand, may be performed by a qualified expert who is not necessarily a plastic surgeon. The procedure is safe and without any significant side effects and risks that are typically associated with a surgery. Like most non-surgical procedures, CoolSculpting can be performed in under an hour. Due to the relatively shorter length of the procedure and lesser resources involved, the overall cost comes down. A non-surgical treatment would normally not require an overnight stay at the facility, which again reduces the cost.
Average Cost of CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting cost may vary from one practice to another and from one location to another to some extent. For instance, the cost of the procedure at Dr. Byrd’s practice in Atlanta and Roswell, GA will be different from the cost at a practice based in Manhattan, NYC or Beverly Hills, CA. The cost of living index of each city and state may differ, which will impact the costs of all kinds of professional services, including anti-aging and cosmetic procedures such as CoolSculpting.
The cost of CoolSculpting can also vary from one patient to another at the same practice because of the following factors:
Extent of Treatment
Some patients may require limited CoolSculpting treatment in just one area of the body. The abdominal area, hips or thighs are commonly affected areas where a patient may need to reduce excess fat deposits. Focused treatment in just a single area of concern will typically cost lower than extensive treatment required in multiple areas. The patient’s unique needs, body shape, and anatomy, and personal aesthetic goals will determine the scale of treatment needed.
Number of Treatment Sessions
A patient may be able to achieve the desired aesthetic goals in just a single treatment of CoolSculpting. This will bring down the cost of treatment. However, some patients may need multiple treatment sessions to achieve more thorough and longer lasting results. The cost of treatment will be in proportion to the number of treatment sessions a patient needs.
Schedule an appointment with Dr. Byrd to see if liposuction or a non-surgical option would be best for you. She also offers Ultherapy and Vanquish as other alternatives for fat reducing. With so many options, it’s no wonder that Byrd Aesthetic and Anti-Aging Center is highly sought after by patients from all over the Atlanta Metro area including Marietta, Milton, Roswell, Sandy Springs, Alpharetta, and Johns Creek.
