Nature Coast Now Offers CoolSculpting in Tallahassee!

CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting® in Tallahassee Is Now a Reality!

The CoolSculpting ® procedure eliminates stubborn fat safely and effectively, without surgery or downtime. This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet- and exercise-resistant fat. CoolSculpting results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you’ll look and feel great from every angle.

Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.

You can reshape your body! We will develop a customized CoolSculpting treatment plan that addresses your problem areas. Additional sessions may further enhance your results. Your individualized treatment plan will be tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
It’s easy to sit back, relax and say goodbye to stubborn fat. After we select the area(s) to be treated, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. During your procedure, you may choose to read, check email, or even take a nap.

My experience was amazing! I went in with a little reservation regarding the pain and over results once the procedure was complete, but Dr. O helped to relieve me of my fear. The way he handled the procedure caused me minimal pain and the end result is exactly as he said it would be. Thanks Dr. O!

“Breastfeeding, The Best and Earliest Healthy Start for Children”

Uncategorized

Dr. O

Choosing to breastfeed your baby gives your baby the best and earliest healthy start in life. Breastfeeding is a wonderful way to bond with your baby. Breast milk has antibodies that can prevent your baby from getting sick and it has all the nutrients your baby needs to grow and develop. It can help prevent against health problems in your baby such as allergies, eczema, ear infections and stomach problems. Breastfed babies are also less likely to be obese or have diabetes.

Breastfeeding has benefits for mothers as well. Mothers who breastfeed find it easier to lose weight after pregnancy and it may help lower their risk of breast and ovarian cancers and other diseases. Breastfeeding is the natural, healthy choice for both mom and baby.

At Nature Coast Women’s Care, we want you to know that we are here to answer any questions you have regarding breastfeeding your baby and to get you connected with local support groups to help you maximize the benefits of breastfeeding.
