What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a relatively new method of removing unwanted fat from anywhere on your body, including abdomen, hips, flanks and thighs. CoolSculpting is performed using a cold laser that essentially freezes fat cells so they die and can be eliminated from your body via natural elimination processes. CoolSculpting is also the leading non-invasive fat removal procedure in the world with more than 7 million successful treatments worldwide.

The CoolSculpting procedure can help women and men get rid of stubborn fat bulges just about anywhere on their bodies. The non-invasive treatment works on “love handles” and can even eliminate the double chin you see when you check yourself in the mirror each morning. CoolSculpting safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath your skin. These treated fat cells are frozen, then die. Over time, your body naturally processes and eliminates these dead fat cells, leaving you with a more sculpted look.

Once the fat cells are eliminated from your body, then never come back. However, Coolsculpting is not a weight loss procedure. The number of fat cells in the human body typically become fixed during adolescent years. When we lose weight, we reduce the size of our fat cells but not the number of fat cells. When we gain weight, our fat cells increase in size, but not number. CoolSculpting typically reduces the number of fat cells in treated areas by about 20% to 25%.

After your CoolSculpting treatment, you may not weigh less, but you’ll definitely look thinner. And your clothes will fit better, feel more comfortable and look better on you, too!

  • Dr. Kressel and his team were all very kind and kept me comfortable while waiting for the surgery. The before care, during, and aftercare from him and his team made this experience worth it. I knew I was in good hands from the beginning, and I'd recommend Dr. Kressel to anyone! The results from his work are phenomenal and I am glad he was my doctor.

  • Dr. Kressel went above and beyond, meeting me outside of operating hours to stitch up my face. Everything went well and the stitches were removed less than a week later with minimal scarring.
