There is newer technology, CoolSculpting. And CoolSculpting is a great non-invasive, non-surgical technique. And it basically has kind of a square cup and it pulls the fat and skin into this cup. It has two cold plates and then it brings it down to a certain temperature. And that temperature actually freezes the fat. And over time, you're body will scavenge that fat and you'll probably have about a 20% reduction. It's probably a little bit more than that, but we really like to be realistic. So it's nice because after a procedure like that, then you don't have any down time, you can exercise, you can go back to work, you can do all those things. It's just that it's a little bit of a commitment as far as the location, so if you do one area of the abdomen, that's a one hour time frame. And then if you do another part in the abdomen, it's another hour. So it could be that you need to allot two to three hours, but you don't have a surgery, you don't have anesthesia, you don't have any of those other things. As we know it now, there's a certain type if cell called the macrophage that can take up some of the lysed fat or some of the fat that has been disrupted and can process it in the body and then your body will eliminate it.
