CoolSculpting® in Westchester County, NY can be an effective body sculpting solution for those frustrating fat deposits on the flanks, love handles, and stomach that even diet and exercise can't remove. In the past, liposuction was the primary method for removing fat deposits on specific areas, such as bulges on the thighs and hips. However, CoolSculpting can be an effective nonsurgical alternative for reducing unwanted fat with no anesthesia, no incisions, and no downtime.

Before & After CoolSculpting

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

The Science Behind CoolSculpting

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.

The treatment safely utilizes precisely controlled cooling to target exercise-resistant fat deposits. These fat cells freeze, break down, and are naturally eliminated by the body. Since fat cells freeze at a higher temperature that other cells, the surrounding tissues are left unharmed.

The FDA-cleared procedure typically takes less than an hour, resulting in an average of a 20% reduction in the treated fat after one visit. The goal of CoolSculpting is a slimmer, more toned body, with a reduction in those specific areas of fat targeted.

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 a beautiful result. In addition to CoolSculpting, we offer many complementary procedures, such as skin treatments for facial rejuvenation. We also offer liposuction for precise fat reduction. During your consultation, we will discuss other possible options to help you create the appearance you want.

Candidates for CoolSculpting

During your consultation, we will determine if you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting. When you're at or near your target weight, follow a healthy diet and fitness plan, but still have fat deposits on your hips, thighs, or "love handles," CoolSculpting may be a good option. However, CoolSculpting should not be thought of as a weight loss procedure. EMSCULPT® is another nonsurgical body contouring treatment. It tones and tightens the ab and buttock muscles while also burning fat. Additionally, we will evaluate your skin elasticity–if your is lax and sagging, a tummy tuck or other surgical procedure may be required.

Treatment Areas

CoolSculpting is a versatile treatment and can shrink fatty deposits in the following areas:

  • Abdomen and "muffin top"
  • Double chin
  • Flanks, also known as "love handles"
  • Thighs (inner and outer)
  • Back, including the "bra bulge"

Procedure Overview

To begin your CoolSculpting procedure, a special gel pad is applied to the treatment area 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?

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 consultation, we will create a customized treatment plan and determine the number of sessions that you will need.
