Who Is a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting?

  • Patients who would rather avoid surgery.

CoolSculpting Treatment Before & After Photos

What can patients expect during a CoolSculpting procedure?

  • There is minimal to no discomfort during the procedure. No anesthesia or pain medication is required.
  • FDA approved CoolSculpting uses a process called Cryolipolysis™, controlled cooling of fatty tissue.
  • After the tissue has been precisely cooled for a certain period of time, fat cells begin to break down.
  • The damaged fat cells are reduced through the body’s natural cleansing process.
  • Over time, gradual fat reduction is accomplished.

What can patients expect after a CoolSculpting procedure?

  • Quite simply, there is no recovery time required after a coolsculpting treatment.
  • You can get back to your regular routine soon after the procedure, even if that means engaging in strenuous exercise.
  • Some mild redness or bruising is possible, but these should clear over a few days.
  • Occasionally, patients report a temporary numbness in the treated area.

When can you expect to see results after a Coolsculpting treatment?

  • Improvement appears gradually, with results beginning to be visible after 4 weeks and with optimal results in 2 to 4 months.
  • The fat layer is typically reduced by about 20% to 25%. Additional treatment sessions can cause an increased reduction in fat. Dr. Brodsky will develop a unique treatment plan specifically for you and will discuss your options for multiple treatment sessions.
  • Patients see smoother, slimmer, firmer body contours.
  • With healthy diet and regular exercise, patients can maintain these improved contours.
  • Although most patients are thrilled with their results, if you have larger pockets of fat, you may want to consider liposuction or a tummy tuck. Although these are more invasive procedures, they can achieve more dramatic improvement.
