Am I a good candidate?

The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who are close to their ideal body weight and have moderate bulges or specific areas of unwanted fat that remain resistant to healthy diet and exercise.The areas we can currently treat using the CoolSculpting procedure are:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks (also known as “love handles”)
  • Thighs
  • Submental (the area underneath the chin, also known as “double-chin”)
  • Upper Arms
  • Bra fat
  • Banana roll

Unlike gastric bypass surgery, the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese, and Dr. Munasifi may also recommend traditional liposuction instead of CoolSculpting in some cases. This procedure is, however, a great non-surgical alternative to liposuction for the right candidate.

PLEASE NOTE: The CoolSculpting procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia, paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria, or if you have a hernia underneath the area you wish to be treated.

How long is each session? How many sessions will I need?

The length of your CoolSculpting treatment will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. We can treat a patient in 35-60 minutes, some patients have more than one treatment during the same office visit.

How much does the CoolSculpting procedure cost?

The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. We will help create a customized treatment plan, in person, that’s tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget. If you decide to pursue liposuction, 50% of your payment for CoolSculpting will be applied toward the treatment.

How does it work? Where does the fat go?

Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), your body processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.

What does it feel like?

During the beginning of treatment, you will feel strong pressure. This dissipates as the cooling begins and the area being treated becomes temporarily numb on its own as a result of this process. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.

When will I see results? How long will results last?

You may start to see changes as quickly as 3 weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after 2 months.  Your body will still continue to flush out fat cells for up to 4 to 6 months after treatment.*. These results vary by individuals. However, your body will still be clearing out fat cells and continue doing so for up to four to six months after treatment. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good! If you decide to pursue liposuction, 50% of your payment for CoolSculpting will be applied toward the treatment.

Are there any side effects?

During the procedure you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or discomfort. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and pain. Rare side effects may also occur. The CoolSculpting procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. The CoolSculpting procedure is not a treatment for obesity. As with any medical procedure, ask us if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.

Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?

Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Often times, patients return to work after their CoolSculpting session is over.

Is the CoolSculpting procedure safe?

With over 5 million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, this has been proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction. The procedure is also FDA-cleared for the flank (love handles), abdomen, thigh, and submental areas.

What happens if I gain weight down the road?

Many people, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting procedure, take even better care of themselves. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas.1
