CoolSculpting®

If surgery isn’t your first choice for fat reduction, how about relaxing in our office for an hour instead?

With CoolSculpting technology we can freeze your fat cells into oblivion while you catch up on your reading.

CoolSculpting uses a proprietary process called Cryolipolysis to freeze and kill fat cells in specific areas of the body, while leaving other tissue intact. Your body eliminates the dead fat gradually, leaving slimmer, natural contours in a matter of weeks.

CoolSculpting is effective on specific bulges, rather than large areas. It is not a weight loss solution and is not a substitute for more dramatic procedures such as surgery or liposuction.

Conditions

LOCALIZED ACCUMULATIONS OF FAT Tenacious, isolated fat deposits. CoolSculpting is FDA cleared for use on the abdomen and flanks (love handles, muffin tops).

The Treatment

While you sit or recline comfortably, we place the CoolSculpting device on the treatment area. The device draws your bulge up between two cooling panels. You will feel a firm pull, then pressure and intense cold. This sensation will dissipate after a few minutes. When your session is over -- typically one to three hours -- you are free to return to your day’s activities. You will need no anesthesia during treatment and no pain medication afterward.

The Schedule

You will have an initial consultation to discuss your goals and determine a treatment plan. A typical treatment plan for one area of the body involves a single, one-hour session. Some plans may call for longer sessions or more than one session.

Your body begins eliminating dead fat cells naturally after treatment. You should see a noticeable improvement in the treatment area in three weeks and significant improvement in two months. Your body may continue to eliminate the fat for four to six months.

Your final results should remain stable as long as you maintain your weight.

Precautions

Some patients experience temporary pain or discomfort after treatment. Side effects may include redness, bruising, swelling, tenderness, cramping, itching, tingling, or numbness. Numbness may persist as long as several weeks after the CoolSculpting procedure.
