COOLSCULPTING®

The CoolSculpting procedure eliminates stubborn fat safely and effectively without surgery or downtime. No surgery, no needles, no special diets, no supplements ... and no downtime. Just one hour of treatment per treated area!

This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet- and exercise-resistant fat. CoolSculpting results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you’ll look and feel great from every angle.

Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.

After one visit, you’ll typically see a noticeable reduction of fat. It takes a few months to fully realize the effects, mainly because it takes that long for your body to naturally dispose of the fat cells. And yes, you can lose even more with additional appointments if you and Dr. Moran deem it necessary.

So after a few months, your clothes will fit better and you will look better. What’s more, there are no pills or supplements. And as long as you maintain your normal diet and exercise, your long-term results should remain stable.

Is it right for me?

Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. Unlike gastric bypass surgery, the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however, a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.

Dr. Moran will develop a customized CoolSculpting treatment plan that addresses your problem areas. Additional sessions may further enhance your results. Your individualized treatment plan will be tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.

After we select the area(s) to be treated, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. During your procedure, you may choose to read, check email, or even take a nap.

Recovery period

  • You should be able to resume your normal activities the same day of the procedure. CoolSculpting takes very little time and is pretty simple to fit into your daily life. After your CoolSculpting treatment you can typically get right back to your busy day. Each treatment lasts one hour – the same time you might spend at the gym. So you can easily fit your appointment into a lunch break.
  • When will I see results?

    The CoolSculpting process involves freezing fat cells. As the fat cells die, they shrink and are naturally absorbed by the body. This means the results appear gradually, starting about 3 weeks after the treatment. The full results usually take about 2 to 4 months to be noticed.

    Are the results permanent?

    Once the fat cells are destroyed, they are gone for good. Your remaining fat cells can still expand, though, so it's important to stick to a healthy lifestyle. If you continue to exercise, have healthy eating habits, and maintain your weight, the results are long-lasting.
