Allentown plastic surgeon Dr. Edward Guarino uses liposuction for men and women desiring surgical fat removal. Some individuals, however, who have problematic areas that consist of pockets of fat or bulges that are resistant to diet and exercise may not wish to have surgery. One procedure that offers patients a slimmer look without surgery, is CoolSculpting. Modern engineering has allowed newer, nonsurgical fat removal techniques such as CoolSculpting to gain notoriety. This technique uses cryolipolys to reduce fat by targeting and freezing the existing fat cells so they can be eliminated naturally from the body. The process of elimination can take weeks, but as each week passes, patients notice a slimmer figure and more defined contour. During this treatment, there are no incisions or sutures needed. CoolSculpting helps solve frustrating belly pooches, love handles, and other areas that are of concern for patients.

Procedure Technique

During a CoolSculpting procedure, we will place the cooling device on the area of the body where the fat is to be treated. The device pulls the fat pocket up between the cooling panels, where the freezing process will ensue. Patients will feel some pressure, but no pain. Most CoolSculpting treatments will only last about an hour. Following the procedure, patients will have some redness and tingling sensation on the areas treated, but this typically subsides quickly.  

During/After Procedure

All CoolSculpting procedures are performed in office. No anesthesia or numbing medication is necessary, due to the procedure’s pain free process, and patients are immediately released to normal activity following treatment. Patients will begin to see results within several weeks. On average, it takes about two full months for the most dramatic results to take shape due to frozen fat cells naturally dissolving from the body over time. Patients should adhere to a healthy diet and eating plan to help maintain results.

CoolSculpting FAQs

Does It Truly Work?

Yes. This is a fat dissolving process that has been proven to eliminate fat from the body. Studies show that with one treatment, patients experienced a 20% reduction in fat after two months and a 25% reduction in fat after 6 months.

Is CoolSculpting Safe?

Yes. This procedure was developed by Harvard scientists and approved by the FDA in 2010. At that time, the safety and efficacy of CoolSculpting were proven. It is a noninvasive, non-surgical procedure that does not require in any downtime.

Will the Fat Come Back?

Once the fat is frozen, dissolved and eliminated, these particular fat cells will be gone forever. However, new fat cells can form, so it is important to adhere to a healthy diet and fitness program to maximize the results long-term.

How Many Treatments?

This will be decided during your consultation. For many individuals, one full treatment is enough to obtain the desired results, although some patients may need more than one, depending on how much fat will be removed.
