Before & After CoolSculpting

Coolsculpting before and after Each patient is different; your results may vary.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

The observation that fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues led Harvard scientists to develop cryolipolysis–the controlled application of cooling to break down fat cells. This formed the basis of CoolSculpting.

This FDA-cleared treatment safely utilizes precisely controlled cooling to target exercise-resistant fat deposits. These fat cells freeze, break down, and are naturally flushed away by the body (see video). Since fat cells freeze at a higher temperature that other cells, the surrounding tissues are left unharmed. On average, patients achieve a 20% reduction in the treated fat with a single treatment.

The CSANY Difference

The surgeons at Cosmetic Surgery Associates of New York want your CoolSculpting procedure to be as successful as possible. Although other practices offer this technology, not everyone has the skills and experience needed to achieve attractive results. During your consultation, we will discuss other possible options to help you create the appearance you want. We also offer liposuction for precise fat reduction. We will evaluate your skin elasticity–if your skin is lax and sagging, a tummy tuck or other surgical procedure may be required.

Candidates for CoolSculpting

During your consultation, we will determine if you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting. This innovative treatment may be a good choice if you:

  • Want to reduce isolated fat deposits
  • Are at or near your target weight
  • Follow a healthy diet and fitness plan

EMSCULPT® is another nonsurgical body contouring treatment. It tones and tightens the ab and buttock muscles while burning fat.

Treatment Areas

CoolSculpting is a versatile treatment that can shrink fatty deposits practically anywhere they develop, including:

  • Abdomen and "muffin top"

  • Thighs (inner and outer)
  • Upper back including a "bra bulge"

Procedure Overview

To begin your CoolSculpting procedure, a special gel pad is applied to the targeted area of fat to protect your skin and evenly distribute the cooling. The cooling device is pressed against the treatment area, and it delivers cold energy to the fat cells. You will feel an intense cold sensation initially, but the area will soon become numb.

Typically, patients feel little to no discomfort throughout the treatment. Patients often read magazines, check emails, or even nap. After the tissue has been precisely cooled for a carefully calculated period of time, you can to return to your normal daily activities.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the recovery like after CoolSculpting?

Because CoolSculpting does not require anesthesia or incisions, no recovery period is needed. In 3 days, as your fat cells begin to respond, you might experience mild soreness. However, you can return to your regular routine after the procedure. Within a few days, any minimal redness should be gone.

How long does it take for results to show?

Because CoolSculpting relies on your body's own processes, the benefits usually are visible within 2 to 4 months.

How long do CoolSculpting results last?

After your body has flushed away the dead fat cells, you can keep that slimmer figure by staying at or near your target weight. In addition, follow a healthy diet and exercise program to maintain the benefits of your newly sculpted body.

How many treatments are necessary?

Many patients see results after just one treatment, but some undergo several treatments to achieve optimal results. During your consultation, we will create a customized treatment plan and determine the number of sessions you will need.
