Introducing a cool new way to melt fat.

If you don’t have any unwanted fat on your body – can you let us in on your secret? For the rest of us living with an extra roll or bulge that just won’t budge, there is a new secret weapon at The Cosmetic Surgery Clinic. Introducing CoolSculpting®. This innovative technology can do away with those pesky inches.

How does the CoolSculpting procedure work?

CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared non-invasive fat reduction procedure that freezes and destroys targeted fat cells. The technology was developed by affiliates of Harvard Medical School who found that cold can selectively eliminate fat cells without any harm to the surrounding tissues, a process known as Cryolipolysis®. The destroyed fat cells are metabolized by the body over a period 3 to 8 weeks after the treatment.

The treatment involves the placement of the CoolSculpting device over the area of concern. Patients can sit comfortably while the treatment takes place, catching up on reading, emails, watching programs or even napping. Right about now you’re thinking – this is too good to be true, but we assure you, it’s not! Some transient redness, swelling or discomfort are possible, but most patients can return to normal activities right after their CoolSculpting treatment.

How long will the results of CoolSculpting® last?

The fat reduction results of the CoolSculpting procedure are life-long, but it cannot impede the accumulation or expansion of fat cells should lifestyle or health factors result in post-treatment weight gain. In other words, the treatment doesn’t transcend the laws of nature – so don’t get complacent with your diet and exercise routine.

It is important to note that while CoolSculpting is a truly innovative and exciting solution to achieve aesthetic body contouring goals without surgery, there are limitations to what can be done. It is an alternative to liposuction, but does not replace it. The best way to discover if CoolSculpting is right for you is to schedule a consultation with us.
