What is CoolSculpting and how does it work?

CoolSculpting is a safe, FDA-cleared fat freezing technology that kills unwanted fat cells. With CoolSculpting there are NO incisions, NO surgeries, NO lasers or sonic waves and NO anesthesia! Formulated by Harvard scientists, Cryolipolyisis,™ (the term for fat freezing science) lead to the development of this revolutionary process which now allows us to use a simple applicator device placed on the skin (fatty bulge) to literally freeze fat cells under the skin to the point of crystallization. This targeted cooling allows us to safely freeze your problem fat cells so they are naturally (and permanently) eliminated from your body over the next several weeks.

Am I a candidate for CoolSculpting?

CoolScultping is not a weight loss method for those who need to shed a large amount of weight, nor is it a substitute for surgical methods such as liposuction or tummy tuck. Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas. Coolsculpting is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. Some of the areas that can be treated are: the belly, muffin top, flanks, upper bra area, inner and outer thighs, arms and double chins. At your complimentary consultation we'll assess your bulges with you to determine the right number of treatments to get your desired result. Typically a plan might include 2 – 10 treatments and pricing is based the package you choose. The great part about FreezeMyFatFL at Hass Plastic Surgery is we have three CoolSculpting machines as well as the latest CoolAdvantage applicators allowing us to offer you DualSculpting™ for quicker treatment options!

How is the CoolSculpting® performed?

On the day of your CoolSculpting treatment, we will place a protective gel on the skin over the area being treated. Once you are comfortable, the CoolSculpting applicator will be placed on the selected bulge so it can be cooled efficiently to give you results. Once positioned the applicator stays on for 35 minutes (or longer for outer thighs) as it begins deep cooling.  

During your CoolScultping treatment you will sit comfortably and read, watch a movie, use personal electronic devices or even nap. Once the applicator is removed you may feel some numbness or experience redness and tingling in the area, however these sensations fade quickly. In fact, many of our patients will return to typical daily activities right after treatment. 

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments you will need will depend on the areas you are targeting and your ultimate fat reduction goals. At your consultation our team will assess your 'bulges' so we can estimate cost and your timing for completion. Most patients see a noticeable reduction of fat in as little as three weeks, with the most dramatic results after two to three months, but your body will still flush out fat cells and continue doing so for up to four to six months.Remember, once the treated fat cells are crystallized(frozen), your body processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they're gone for good!

What is required after my CoolSculpting treatment?

There are no special garments, supplements, pills or diets to use after you have CoolSculpting. As long as you maintain weight with your normal diet and exercise regimen, your long-term results should remain stable. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas. 
We find our South Florida CoolScultping patients feel more confident with their new body and seem more motivated to take better care of themselves. They love their new look and feel better wearing their shirts and jeans now that their muffin tops and bulges are no longer showing!
