Is CoolSculpting a replacement for liposuction?

CoolSculpting is not a replacement for liposuction or other surgical fat reducing procedures. Studies indicate that the typical amount of fat lost through CoolSculpting™ varies between patients but is typically around 20-25%. CoolSculpting is best for those who are already close to their ideal body weight but have small isolated areas of fat such as “love handles” or “muffin top” that they cannot lose through diet and exercise. Results with CoolSculpting take about 2-4 months to be fully realized. The results will not be as dramatic as with liposuction. Our new treatment protocol for CoolSculpting is called Treatment to Transformation. This treatment protocol involves looking at the entire body and developing a comprehensive treatment plan with CoolSculpting. Often this involves 6-8 CoolSculpting sessions with various hand pieces for better coverage. Some results with the treatment to transformation program have achieved results rivaling liposuction.

Is anesthesia required for CoolSculpting treatment?

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure, so needles, surgical incisions, and anesthesia won’t be necessary.

Who is a good candidate for CoolSculpting™?

The ideal candidate for CoolSculpting are men and women who are close to their ideal body weight with small areas of fat they wish to lose that are resistant to diet and exercise. These are typically individuals who are not surgical candidates or those who opt not to have cosmetic surgery procedures. Patients who are emotionally stable and fully understand what CoolSculpting can and cannot accomplish will be the happiest with their results.

Is there downtime after CoolSculpting?

After the CoolSculpting procedure, patients resume normal their activities the same day.

When can I expect to see the effects of CoolSculpting?

After just 3-4 weeks, most patients begin to see results. After 3 months you’ll see the most dramatic improvement. Through your body’s natural metabolic processes, the fat cells in the treated area are gradually eliminated.
