CoolSculpting: a Quick Guide

CoolSculpting: a Quick Guide

CoolSculpting is an exciting new, non-invasive procedure that can kill stubborn fat cells using cryolipolysis – cold temperatures that freeze and eliminate fat cells in the body. With around 4 million procedures done and counting, the patented process has been proven effective time and time again to help people get rid of fat in areas that do not respond to diet and exercise.

What is CoolSculpting?

The process of CoolSculpting is so appealing because it does not involve the typically undesirable aspects of surgery. No needles, no anest

hesia, no incisions. Instead, your plastic surgeon uses a patented tool to freeze the fat cells under your skin so that they die off and are absorbed and expelled by the body. For most people, the risks are minimal and the results are noticeable.

CoolSculpting is approved by the FDA for treating visible fat bulges under the chin, the thigh, abdomen, and bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks and the upper arm.

CoolSculpting Facts

  • Was approved by the FDA in 2012
  • Nearly 4 million procedures have been done
  • Non-invasive
  • The procedure lasts between 1 to 3 hours
  • Recovery time is minimal – you can get back to normal activities often the same day
  • Results in between 20 to 80 percent fat reduction after one procedure

What is the procedure like?

A CoolSculpting procedure is easy and relatively comfortable. Your treatment provider will apply an applicator or gel pad to the area to freeze the fat cells underneath. The procedure combines suction and cooling to target the right cells. You may feel some pulling or pinching. After the application, the provider will massage the area to help break up the frozen cells.

You can read, work, or listen to music. After the procedure, you can go back to your normal activities.

    Hands down this is the most amazing plastic surgery office! No haggling and Dr. Jacobs will not perform a surgery if the scar exceeds the benefit. His words exactly which is exactly what I want to know ahead of time not after the surgery is done. Dr. Jacobs is a phenomenal surgeon and I trust him 150%. Felecia his nurse is as wonderful as Dr. Jacobs!!

  • I visited Dr. Johnathan Jacob's Office to see about getting a Lipoma removed from my upper left shoulder. After meeting Dr. Jacob's he discussed with me what needed to be done to remove it. I was very happy with the surgery and how good a surgeon he is. I was very satisfied with the procedure and the outcome. I was happy with his staff also they took good care of me. ???
