Many people experience small, localized areas of fat on their bodies that they have trouble eliminating through standard diet and exercise routines. While liposuction surgery can be a very effective treatment to eliminate stubborn fat deposits, surgical procedures may not be necessary for smaller areas of excess fat. CoolSculpting® is an advanced, non-surgical alternative to liposuction that involves no needles, incisions, or extensive recovery times. This FDA-approved treatment utilizes Cryolipolysis™, a way of cooling fat cells in the targeted areas. Dr. Stafford Broumand will use a special applicator placed onto the skin that will cool the excess fat cells and cause them to gradually break down. Then, the body’s natural processes filter these fat cells out over the next few months. A single CoolSculpting® treatment can ultimately lead to a reduction of fat in the targeted areas and a more contoured appearance.

The CoolSculpting® procedure has traditionally been used to target fat in the abdomen, lower back, and “love handles”. Thanks to our CoolSmooth™ and CoolFit™ applicators, Dr. Broumand can also utilize CoolSculpting® to diminish stubborn fat pockets on the inner and outer thighs for qualified patients. With its unique flat design, this innovative applicator can be ideal for non-pinchable fat. At the time of your consultation, Dr. Broumand can help you determine if this non-surgical fat reduction treatment would be the best option for your unique needs and goals.
CoolSculpting® Recovery and Results
There is typically no recovery time necessary after treatment with CoolSculpting®. You can expect some redness in the treated areas following the procedure; however, this should dissipate quickly. Most patients can resume normal daily activities immediately. The best results from CoolSculpting® are typically most apparent after about two months.
I had surgery on my eyes to remove unsightly bags, in addition to cool sculpting around my waist. The staff was nothing less than fantastic. I was made to feel comfortable; they attended to me with incredible care and attention. My expectations on everything from post operative pain, discomfort were absolutely bang on. They were also calling me many times subsequent to the operation to ensure I was ok and felt fine. I would recommend them without hesitation.
