CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure that’s helped thousands of men and women achieve their ideal physique. It’s a non-surgical procedure that is specifically designed to address problem areas that aren’t responding well to traditional weight loss methods like diet and exercise.
At Longwood Plastic Surgery, we can help you reduce the number of fat cells within your body for long-lasting results you’ll love. CoolSculpting® is entirely non-invasive meaning no incisions, injections, or harsh chemicals. That makes it a risk-free procedure that’s virtually painless.
What to Expect During Your CoolSculpting® Treatment
CoolSculpting® is done in-office and takes hardly any time at all. Depending on the size and location of the treatment area, your procedure can be done in as little as 35-minutes. You may feel a slight burning, stinging, or numbing sensation as the fat-freezing treatment begins to take effect. However, this usually only lasts a few minutes of your total procedure. Most men and women find the procedure to be fairly comfortable.
What Happens After Coolsculpting Treatment?
There is no downtime associated with CoolSculpting®. You’ll be able to get back to your normal day-to-day routine immediately following treatment. Side effects are typically minimal and subside on their own within several hours to several days. These can include redness, swelling, tenderness, blanching, bruising, and/or firmness.
Over-the-counter pain medication should be sufficient to manage any discomfort you experience directly after treatment. A light burning sensation and numbness is common in the days following your procedure. Compression garments and light exercise can also help reduce pain and inflammation during your initial recovery. Your LPS provider will discuss other ways in which you can keep yourself comfortable in the hours after treatment.
How Many Coolsculpting Sessions Will You Need?
Many patients see significant fat reduction (up to 25%) with just one CoolSculpting® session. Initial results can be seen within about 2-weeks as damaged fat cells are flushed from the body. Full results can take anywhere from 1-3 months. Depending on your individual concerns and goals, you may need several CoolSculpting® to achieve desired results.
Whether you’re looking to jump-start your weight loss goals or contour your final physique, CoolSculpting® can help. With minimal pain, side effects, or downtime, you can’t go wrong with this entirely non-invasive treatment option. Your LPS provider is ready to work with you to customize a treatment plan that’s right for you.
