5th Avenue Millennium Aesthetic Surgery in NYC Offers CoolSculpting® by Zeltiq™, Non-Surgical Fat-Reduction
NEW YORK, May 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Manhattan-based 5th Avenue Millennium Aesthetic Surgery (http://www.5thavesurgery.com), the practice of New York's longest-tenured microsurgical team, Dr. Carlin Vickery and Dr. Leo Keegan, announced today that it is offering CoolSculpting® by Zeltiq™, a breakthrough procedure in noninvasive fat reduction.
Approved by the FDA late last year and making news as a "fat-freezing" technique, CoolSculpting is a cutting-edge process that utilizes a controlled cooling process called selective cryolipolysis, to break-up and eliminate fat cells in targeted areas of the body without surgery, anesthesia, pain medication – or significant side effects. CoolSculpting is recommended for patients at their ideal body weight to remove diet-and-exercise resistant bulges in the midsection.
"Adding CoolSculpting to our arsenal of body sculpting techniques really will help us get optimal results for each individual patient," said Dr. Keegan. "Not all patients who come in for consultations may be the ideal CoolSculpting candidates, but as plastic surgeons we'll be able to see what particular combination of non-invasive and/or surgical procedures – liposuction, tummy tuck and other skin-tightening surgeries – will work best for them."
"Unlike many other fat-reducing technologies we've looked at over the years, CoolSculpting has the science to back it up," said Dr. Vickery. "Clinical trials demonstrated reduction of over 20% in the thickness of the fat layer in patients in the months following their initial treatment."
Among a select group of doctors who are board-certified in both general surgery and plastic surgery, in addition to earning a specialization in microsurgery, Dr. Vickery and Dr. Keegan have a combined 40 years of experience in private practice, performing each surgery with artistic precision and uncompromising attention to detail. 5th Avenue Millennium Aesthetic Surgery offers a full spectrum of surgical and non-surgical procedures in addition to providing cosmetic surgeries including Mommy Makeovers, Breast Reductions and Breast Enlargements.
At the vanguard of new developments in reconstructive surgery, Dr. Keegan and Dr. Vickery have always dedicated a large portion of their time to post-mastectomy breast reconstruction surgeries such as the DIEP flap and have pioneered innovative techniques for autologous, hybrid, and revisionary surgeries. Dr. Vickery and Dr. Keegan have worked in tandem on breast reconstructions for 15 years, and their innovative team approach has earned referrals from oncologists nationwide.
Established in 1997, 5th Avenue Millennium Aesthetic Surgery is conveniently located in Carnegie Hill in NYC's Upper East Side, within steps of public transportation and Central Park and with off-street parking available.
