Non-Surgical Body CoolSculpting®

Despite your weight loss efforts, do you have a muffin top or belly pooch that just won’t budge? Even at a healthy weight, many people struggle with small areas of stubborn fat. The Langdon Center offers multiple fat reduction and body contouring treatments to help you achieve that sculpted look. CoolSculpting® makes it easy with no downtime and no needles, just great results. 

What is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive, FDA-cleared body contouring treatment that reduces stubborn fat. This revolutionary technology takes advantage of the fact that fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than other tissues. The CoolSculpting® device freezes targeted fat cells, damaging them so the body naturally flushes them out.

If you want a non-surgical solution for fat deposits that resist diet and exercise, CoolSculpting® might be the answer. While this procedure isn’t a weight loss treatment and may not have results as dramatic as those of surgical alternatives like liposuction, CoolSculpting® is ideal for sculpting small problem areas to improve your body contours. 

CoolSculpting® can treat fat almost anywhere on the body, including the following:

  • Abdomen
  • Love handles or flanks
  • Back
  • Bra fat
  • Upper arms
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks

Frequently Asked Questions

CoolSculpting® kills fat cells below the skin through an innovative freezing process called cryolipolysis. During the treatment, the fat cells are cooled down until they solidify (about 50 degrees) without harming your skin. Because the frozen fat cells are damaged, your body will naturally eliminate them in the weeks and months following treatment. This results in a visible fat reduction in the treated area, with continued improvement over the next few months. 

During the first few minutes of the treatment, you will feel pressure and cold, but this soon dissipates as the area naturally becomes numb from the cold. Many people read, work on their laptops, or even take a nap during a CoolSculpting® treatment. The average CoolSculpting treatment takes about an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area.

CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive procedure and requires no surgery, anesthesia, or injections. Consequently, no downtime is needed, and recovery is easy. Patients can resume their regular activities immediately after a CoolSculpting® treatment. Mild swelling, bruising, soreness, or numbness in the treatment area are normal and should subside within a couple of weeks.

We typically recommend taking it easy for the first 24 hours after treatment and avoiding strenuous exercise. Be sure to drink plenty of water before and after CoolSculpting® to help minimize swelling.

After a CoolSculpting treatment, it takes time for your body to break down and eliminate the frozen fat cells. You will see some results within weeks, and full results will appear over the next few months. We often recommend two or more treatments for the best outcome.

Once the CoolSculpting® technology crystallizes unwanted fat cells and your body flushes them out, the cells are gone permanently. You should have long-lasting or even permanent results with CoolSculpting®. Because weight gain can cause the remaining fat cells in the treatment area to expand, maintaining a stable weight is essential for long-term results. That’s why a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise is crucial for optimal CoolSculpting® benefits.

If you have areas of stubborn fat, such as muffin top, bra fat, or tummy pooch, CoolSculpting® may be right for you. It is not a solution for individuals who are obese and is not a substitute for certain surgical treatments. Good candidates for CoolSculpting® should be healthy overall and at or near their ideal weight. 

Patients with good skin elasticity typically see the best results with CoolSculpting® because removing fat can worsen skin laxity. You should not have CoolSculpting® if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have certain medical conditions. The best way to decide if CoolSculpting® is right for you is to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Langdon.

CoolSculpting® is popular as a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. These two treatments are very different, each with advantages and disadvantages for sculpting away unwanted fat. During your body contouring consultation at the Langdon Center, we can help you determine which procedure best fits your needs, lifestyle, and body type.
