Body Contouring Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting technology uses controlled cooling, or cryolipolysis, to freeze fat cells in treatment areas. Your body then flushes these destroyed cells using natural waste removal processes to reveal a thinner, more svelte physique.

The procedure is cleared by the FDA and nonsurgical, so you get results without downtime, incisions, or risk of infection.

What areas can CoolSculpting contour?

CoolSculpting is designed for people who are close to their normal weight, but have stubborn pockets of fat in areas such as the:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Bra line
  • Submental (under the chin) area
  • Back
  • Area beneath the buttocks
  • Upper arms
  • Inner thighs

CoolSculpting is a complementary treatment for a healthy lifestyle. The procedure can target fat that conventional exercise and diet can’t seem to reduce.

What should I expect during CoolSculpting treatments?

During the CoolSculpting treatment, you feel intense cold in treatment areas. These areas go numb within a few minutes. As the technology targets your fat cells, you feel suctioning and tingling on the surface of your skin. Following treatment, your body naturally metabolizes your destroyed fat cells through natural waste removal systems.

You may have some bruising, swelling, stinging, and tenderness in the treatment sites. These side effects fade quickly — usually within a few hours or a few days.

Results are evident in as soon as three weeks, but the optimal results appear 1-2 months after CoolSculpting.

Do I need to schedule downtime following CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is nonsurgical and you can go right back to your normal activities following a treatment. No need to take time off work, school, or daily chores. You should take about 24 hours off of intense exercise following a treatment session.

How many CoolSculpting treatments will I need?

Most people benefit from 1-2 total treatments. The exact number to benefit you depends on your physique goals and the areas you’re having treated. The team at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center creates a customized treatment guide so you get the best results.
