About CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is often referred to as nonsurgical liposuction since it can effectively remove fat without the need for surgery. With this procedure, San Antonio Coolsculpting Specialist, Dr. Garcia, will use a handheld device to deliver controlled and precise cooling onto the treatment area to freeze fat cells, which causes them to die. The body will process these fat cells naturally and eventually eliminate them from the body to sculpt and contour the area. CoolSculpting is commonly used on the abdomen, hips, face, neck and back.

Best Candidates

It is important to note that CoolSculpting is not a viable solution for weight loss in overweight or obese patients. It is instead a fat-reduction procedure recommended for those at an average and healthy weight who have isolated pockets, or bulges of fat that have proven to be resistant in the past. Patients should have relatively healthy skin tone without loose and hanging skin.

CoolSculpting Testimonial

During the Procedure

During a CoolSculpting procedure, a patient can expect to experience intense cold and pressure in the targeted area, but this dissipates quickly. The CoolSculpting device is placed on the area of fat where it will draw up the unwanted bulge in between the device’s two cooling panels. The sensation is comparable to a firm pull, but there should be no pain. In fact, during the procedure, patients are usually comfortable enough to watch videos or work on laptops or tablets, read or even take a nap. The length of the treatment depends on an individual’s particular needs but usually takes around an hour. There is no downtime associated with CoolSculpting.

What to Expect

There have been numerous studies regarding the results behind Cryolipolysis. These studies have shown that after just one treatment, patients can expect a significant reduction in fat.  CoolSculpting freezes and kill fat cells, so in the weeks and months following the procedure, the body will naturally process and eliminate these targeted cells leaving the patient with a slimmer, more sculpted appearance. It is important to note that after CoolSculpting, a patient should practice a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and regular exercise for optimal results.

CoolSculpting’s cost varies widely depending on the areas of the body that are targeted and the number of treatments that will be involved.

Patients can usually expect to pay anywhere from $500 to $1,500 per treatment. Multiple treatment sessions may be needed to attain the desired results.
