CoolSculpting Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical, noninvasive body contouring tool that uses fat-freezing technology to destroy unwanted fat cells and improve your body shape. The tool uses controlled cooling, medically referred to as cryolipolysis, that freezes the fat cells under your skin without affecting your skin or any other tissue. The freezing process disrupts the integrity of the fat cells and your body naturally flushes the destroyed fat cells away, resulting in a slimmer physique. 

The cosmetic specialists at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center use CoolSculpting to trim away stubborn fat from your:

  • Abdomen and flank
  • Thighs
  • Back
  • Upper arms
  • Chin
  • Jawline

You may lose up to 25% of fat layer thickness after one CoolSculpting session.

Is CoolSculpting right for me?

Your specialist at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center determines if CoolSculpting is the right choice for you during your consultation. Though you can expect a loss of weight after the body contouring treatment, it’s not a weight loss procedure. Ideally, you should be at or close to your ideal body weight with a body mass index of 30 or less. 

The experienced team at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center offers many body contouring treatments, including liposuction, tummy tuck, and arm lift, and works closely with you to design a plan best suited to meet your needs and aesthetic goals. 

What can I expect during CoolSculpting?

Your CoolSculpting sessions are conducted at the office. The length of your CoolSculpting session may depend on the area, or areas, you’re having treated. Your specialist develops your personalized treatment plan before you get started so you know what to expect.

During your body contouring session, your specialist places the CoolSculpting handpiece on the predetermined treatment area and activates the device. You may experience an intense cold during the first 5-10 minutes of your session, but any discomfort should subside once the area numbs. CoolSculpting uses a vacuum to help draw the fatty tissue into the handpiece, so you may also experience some tugging and pulling during your treatment.

Because CoolSculpting is nonsurgical and noninvasive, there’s no need for any downtime after you’ve completed your body contouring session.

How long does it take to see results from CoolSculpting?

You may start to see an improvement in your body shape in as little as three weeks following your fat-freezing treatment. However, it may take up to six months for you to see the full effects.
