About CoolSculpting

Plastic Surgery of Houston now offers a popular technology called CoolSculpting that reduces fat without surgery. Cryolipolysis (also known as cold lipolysis) uses controlled cooling to get rid of fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting treatments are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to freeze and destroy the targeted fat until the body sheds the dead fat cells through natural elimination. CoolSculpting is very effective on many areas of the body and has no recovery time. In just a few sessions of CoolSculpting with board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jay Shenaq, you can get great results for a slimmer, leaner body.

Best Candidates

CoolSculpting nonsurgical liposuction is not a solution for obesity or a quick fix for weight loss. The best patients show:

  • Good skin tone and elasticity
  • Near their healthy, ideal body weight
  • Fat that is resistant to diet and exercise

What to Expect

With just one application of CoolSculpting, most patients will see up to a 20% reduction in fat about 3 weeks after their treatment when the frozen fat cells have passed through the body. You should see smoother skin and decreased fat. You will have to remain on a healthy eating and exercise regime to maintain your results, but the body will finally release those stubborn cells. This painless and noninvasive treatment will provide a sculpted, slimmer figure.

Other Considerations

Many patients nap, watch television or read during their CoolSculpting procedure. The feeling is similar to a mild tugging sensation, but most patients experience no pain. The patient may experience some cold pressure in the treated area as it is placed between the two cooling panels. There may be some redness or minimal bruising, but it is temporary. Most treatments take about an hour, but this varies based on the size of the area being treated.
