Overview

Fat removal surgery, such as liposuction, has been around for decades. Modern engineering has allowed newer, non-surgical fat removal techniques to gain notoriety. Cryolipolys, known as “CoolSculpting”, is a nonsurgical approach for reducing fat. This procedure targets, freezes and eliminates fat cells under the skin using a cooling process. Once the fat cells are frozen (crystallized), they are naturally eliminated from the body. During this procedure, there are no incisions or sutures needed. CoolSculpting helps solve pesky love handles, belly pooches, and other problematic areas of fat. 

Procedure Technique

During a CoolSculpting procedure, the surgeon will place the cooling device on the area of the body where the fat is to be treated. The device pulls the fat pocket up between the cooling panels, where the freezing process will ensue. Patients will feel some pressure, but no pain. Most CoolSculpting treatments will only last about an hour. Following the procedure, patients will have some redness and tingling sensation on the areas treated, but this typically subsides quickly.  

During/After Procedure

All CoolSculpting procedures are performed in an accredited surgical facility. No anesthesia or numbing medication is necessary, due to the procedure’s pain free process, and patients are immediately released to normal activity following treatment. Patients will begin to see results within several weeks. On average, it takes about two full months for the most dramatic results to take shape due to frozen fat cells naturally dissolving from the body over time. Patients should adhere to a healthy diet and eating plan to help maintain results.

CoolSculpting FAQs

Does It Truly Work?

Yes. This is a fat dissolving process that has been proven to eliminate fat from the body. Studies show that with one treatment, patients experienced a 20% reduction in fat after two months and a 25% reduction in fat after 6 months.

Is CoolSculpting Safe?

Yes. This procedure was developed by Harvard scientists and approved by the FDA in 2010. At that time, the safety and efficacy of CoolSculpting were proven. It is a noninvasive, non-surgical procedure that does not require in any downtime.

Will the Fat Come Back?

Once the fat is frozen, dissolved and eliminated, these particular fat cells will be gone forever. However, new fat cells can form, so it is important to adhere to a healthy diet and fitness program to maximize the results long-term.

How Many Treatments?

This will be decided during your consultation. For many individuals, one full treatment is enough to obtain the desired results, although some patients may need more than one, depending on how much fat will be removed.
