What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting® is the #1 non-surgical fat reduction treatment to contour your body by safely and effectively freezing stubborn fat away, all with little or no downtime. CoolSculpting® is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the submental (under the chin) and submandibular (under the jawline) areas, thigh, abdomen and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll) and upper arm and laxed tissues in the submental area treatments. Clinical trials have demonstrated CoolSculpting® to be safe and effective in reducing fat in these areas.
The number of treatments depends on what areas you want treated and how many treatments you will need to achieve your desired results. Many patients choose to do CoolSculpting® on multiple areas to reach their ideal end result.

You will meet with Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Anthony Bruno for your consult, who will determine if you are a good candidate for Coolsculpting and then will work with you to find a personalized treatment that fits your body.

Each CoolSculpting® treatment is different, so it depends on which areas of the body and how many of them you plan on doing. Depending on the area, treatment can be done in as little as 35 minutes. If you opt to do multiple treatments in a session, expect to spend more time.

During your Coolsculpting treatment, the applicator will be placed on the treatment area and there will be a slight sucking sensation as it adheres to your body, followed by that signature cooling effect. 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 in 5-10 minutes 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, and sensation of fullness in the back of the throat after submental or submandibular area treatment.

After the applicator is detached, Dr. Bruno will do a brief massage on the area to break up the treated fat cells and enhance the fat reduction. That’s it!

While you will see up to a 20-25% fat reduction in the treated area after a single treatment, it depends on the person and the area being treated. Dr. Bruno will work with you to determine if additional treatments are necessary to reach your desired goal.You’ll start to see changes as soon as 1-3 months post-treatment. Final results may take 6 months or more.

CoolSculpting® uses cryolipolysis, which is just a technical way to say fat-freezing. When fat cells freeze, they die and are then naturally eliminated through the body’s natural process. Don’t worry: This process happens so gradually, you won’t necessarily notice a difference in your day-to-day life
