Don’t hide your body underneath bulky sweaters and lots of layers this winter. Flaunt what you’ve got and wear what you like. What’s keeping you from showing off your curves? If love handles or a muffin top are your biggest body complaint, come see us at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive solution to unwanted fat. Learn more about this innovative treatment below or call our offices for personalized treatment advice.

Reduce Stubborn Fat in Specific Area

You’re close to your ideal weight, but struggling with unwanted fat pockets. What’s the solution? Hitting the gym a little more isn’t always viable. As you diet and work out, you’ll lose fat, but this fat loss is uniform, across the body. If you want to target a specific area, you need a targeted treatment option. We often recommend CoolSculpting, a non-invasive treatment that freezes and destroys fat cells. We can treat the specific areas where you struggle with stubborn fat, eliminating fat cells without surgery or downtime. What areas will you treat with CoolSculpting?

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks, aka “love handles”
  • Thighs
  • Submental, aka “double chin”
  • Arms
  • Banana roll

No Downtime- Perfect for Holiday Prep

The holiday season is a busy time for many of our patients, filled with holiday parties and prep. We know you’re too busy for downtime. CoolSculpting is an ideal treatment for this time of the year. Come in, get your treatment, and return to your regular life immediately. No downtime is needed and side effects are minimal during recovery. After CoolSculpting you may experience some numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, or tingling in the treatment area. Non-prescription painkillers, like Tylenol, are usually sufficient to manage any pain or discomfort. Many patients experience no discomfort at all during recovery. Perfect for your holiday body!

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting uses a technology known as cryolipolysis to freeze and destroy fat cells. The CoolSculpting device delivers targeted cooling to unwanted fat cells in the treatment area. These cells are crystalized, or frozen. Once frozen, the fat cells die and are naturally eliminated from the body. Since fat cells don’t regenerate during adulthood, the treated cells are gone for good. During your treatment we’ll place a gel pad and applicator on the treatment areas. The CoolSculpting device will be activated. At first, you may feel intense cooling, but this sensation typically fades and becomes less noticeable with time as the area becomes numb. You may also feel mild tugging, pulling, or pinching as fatty tissue is drawn up into the applicator cup. Enjoy your time doing what you like during treatment. During the busy holiday season, many of our patients shop online or take a nap during their treatment.

Results that Last

CoolSculpting offers long lasting results. You’ll start to see changes about three weeks after treatment. These changes will be subtle at first, but will continue to improve for 4-6 months after treatment as your body removes the damaged fat cells. CoolSculpting typically reduces the number of fat cells in the treated areas by about 20-25% per treatment. However, you can still gain weight after treatment. We recommend a healthy diet and regular exercise to help your results last. If you do gain weight, it will be spread across the body, not just focused in the treatment area. Many of our patients find that their slimmed down look is very motivating, helping them to achieve weight loss and fitness goals.
