TESTIMONIALS: WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY

Talia Rosenthal

I have embattled this problematic bulge on my lower abs for years and was reluctant to get lipo due to the pain and downtime involved. Dr. Silva helped me to lose fat during my lunch breaks! little to no downtime and I went from a size 6 to a size 4 dress pant within weeks of my first session! I am thrilled with the results, I might be addicted!

Carmen Myers

In less than 2 months after getting my first CoolSculpting treatment on my lower abdomen I was able to move to the next notch in my belt. I’ve definitely noticed how differently my clothes fit me, and even after a big meal my husband hugs me and says “You still feel really thin to me!”. I’ve already scheduled another treatment with Dr. Silva to focus on another area of my body. I’m sold on CoolSculpting. It really does work!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: Am I a good candidate for the CoolSculpting procedure?
A: The CoolSculpting fat-reduction procedure is specially designed for those who have unwanted fat in targeted areas. Unlike weight-loss surgery (e.g., gastric bypass), the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight-loss solution for people who are obese. Good candidates for the CoolSculpting procedure have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. Many people want a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.

 

Q: How much does the CoolSculpting procedure cost?
A:The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of treatments needed, and your ultimate goals. Most patients opt to receive treatments in multiple body areas in order to achieve their goals.

 

Q: How long is each treatment? How many treatments will I need?
A: Your CoolSculpting physician will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting treatment will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. The latest technology of CoolSculpting can treat a patient in 35-60 minutes, some patients have more than one treatment during the same office visit. Some practices even have multiple CoolSculpting systems and applicators, so it’s possible for a patient to have multiple areas treated at once. You and your provider may also schedule additional treatments or office visits in order to meet your goals.

 

Q: Can the CoolSculpting procedure reduce fat anywhere on my body?
A: In the U.S., the CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the submental area, thigh, abdomen and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll), and upper arm. In China, the cryolipolysis system is used for fat layer reduction of the abdomen and flanks. In Taiwan, the CoolSculpting procedure is cleared for the breakdown of fat in the flank (love handle), abdomen, and thigh. Outside the U.S., China and Taiwan, the CoolSculpting procedure for non-invasive fat reduction is available worldwide.

Q: Where does that fat go? Are the results permanent?
A: Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), they die and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body. Check out the How It Works of the CoolSculpting procedure to learn more.

 

Q: What does it feel like?
A: As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you typically feel intense cold. This soon dissipates. With some applicators, you’ll feel some pulling as suction is applied. The area generally goes numb within 5 to 10 minutes during treatment. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their CoolSculpting treatment.
After the treatment, you may feel some tingling as the area is massaged for 2 or 3 minutes. Patients are usually able to return to normal activities following their appointment. What to Expect has more information about what happens before, during, and after your CoolSculpting procedure.

 

Q: What are the side effects?
A: During the procedure you may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching, and cramping at the treatment site. These sensations subside as the area becomes numb. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, or skin sensitivity. Sensation of fullness in the back of the throat after submental area treatment. These effects are temporary and generally resolve within days or weeks. Though rare, some additional side effects may occur. As with any medical procedure, ask your physician if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.

 

Q: When will I see results?
A: 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. The Before & After gallery shows what results look like several weeks after CoolSculpting treatment.
