CoolSculpting Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a noninvasive, nonsurgical procedure that helps you get rid of unwanted pockets of fat. It’s the only FDA-cleared treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate the fat that won’t budge with diet and exercise.

Women’s Care OB/GYN uses CoolSculpting to get rid of fat from your:

  • Abdomen and flanks
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Arms
  • Chin

CoolSculpting works by sending targeted, cooling energy to the fat cells under your skin, causing them to freeze and die. Your body then metabolizes the components of these fat cells and eliminates them through normal body processing.

Am I a good candidate for CoolSculpting?

Your physician at Women’s Care OB/GYN can determine if you’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting after an examination, review of your health history, and a discussion of your body-contouring goals.

Ideally, you should be at or close to your goal weight, follow a healthy diet, and engage in regular exercise. CoolSculpting isn’t meant to be used as a weight-loss tool but can help sculpt your body into a more desired shape.

What can I expect during treatment with CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a painless procedure that takes an hour or less of your time. During treatment, you may feel an intense cooling sensation during the first few minutes, but within 10 minutes the area will become numb, and you can relax while the cooling mechanism works on your fat cells. You should be able to resume your usual activities following your CoolSculpting treatment.

The number of treatments you need varies and depends on the areas being treated. Your physician at Women’s Care OB/GYN works with you to determine the most effective treatment plan that gets you the best results. You should notice an improvement in your shape within three weeks after treatment and get the full effects within two months.

Does the fat come back after treatment?

The fat cells destroyed using CoolSculpting don’t come back. However, the remaining fat cells on your body can grow if you eat more calories than you burn. Your physician at Women’s Care OB/GYN recommends you continue to follow your healthy diet and exercise plan following treatment to help maintain results.

Your physician also recommends regular follow-ups to monitor your progress and for additional treatments as needed for continued shaping.
