CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss solution. Rather, it is specifically intended for men and women who are otherwise healthy and at or near their target weight but, despite a balanced diet and exercise regimen, are still struggling to reduce pockets of stubborn fat.

Some of the most common treatment areas include the love handles, tummy, back and thighs. It can also be combined with other treatments. Depending on your specific goals, we may suggest multiple treatments or combining CoolSculpting with other non-surgical procedures such as Thermage or Kybella® to help you achieve optimal results.

Before & After


Because CoolSculpting is non-invasive, there is virtually no downtime or risk involved. Individuals are generally able to return to normal activities right after their appointment. You may develop some minimal bruising, swelling, redness and/or soreness in the treated area, but these effects should improve within the next few days to weeks and should not hinder your busy lifestyle.

Once the treated fat cells are frozen, they die and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body through the lymphatic system. You may begin to see your initial results in as little as 3 weeks following your final treatment. However, full results take some time to appear — on average, about 2 to 4 months — as your body continues to flush out the fat cells.

To ensure your results are long-lasting it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine. Although fat cells have been eliminated, it is still possible for the remaining fat cells to grow.

How much does CoolSculpting cost?

The price of CoolSculpting depends on a variety of different factors including the plastic surgeon’s experience, the facility’s geographic location, number of treatments desired and whether or not you are combining it with other procedures. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimates a CoolSculpting procedure to be $1,481.

How do I find the best plastic surgeon for CoolSculpting near me?

When looking for a plastic surgeon for CoolSculpting, ask about their experience with the procedure. Ask to see before and after photos of other patients so you can see what to expect.

Does CoolSculpting hurt?

Initially, you may experience a slight pinching and pulling sensation. However, the cooling action of the CoolSculpting device quickly numbs the area alleviating any discomfort.

How long is CoolSculpting recovery?

There is absolutely no downtime with CoolSculpting, and you can return to normal activities immediately after your procedure.

Am I a candidate for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a relatively safe non-invasive procedure. It is not a weight loss procedure but rather one to help reduce stubborn fat deposits. If you are within 30 pounds of your goal weight, and wish to reduce the stubborn pockets of pinchable fat than you could be a candidate for CoolSculpting.

Are there any disadvantages with CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a safe procedure with little to no risks. Some people may experience irregular or rough skin after treatment. Multiple procedures are often needed to achieve optimal results. Although, results take longer to see than traditional liposuction, the lack of downtime and healing may be worth the wait if you’re only needing to address a small amount of fat.

How can I prepare for a CoolSculpting procedure?

When it comes to CoolSculpting, there really isn’t anything you need to do to prepare for the procedure. Avoid anti-inflammatories, such as aspirin, for a few days before the procedure, as this can increase the chance of bruising.
