CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to reduce stubborn fat. This non-invasive, cost-effective procedure is done in our Omaha office and yields very little down time.* Problem areas that Coolsculpting has effectively treated include:
- Inner or outer thighs
- Love handles
Patients experience no disruption in their normal routine and can return to work the same day.* It is an excellent fat reduction option for most patients.
How does CoolSculpting work?
During a consultation with Dr. Ayoub, you will select the areas that you would like treated. The Coolsculpting fat reduction system uses controlled cooling to safely target fat cells without damaging skin. Treated fat cells are frozen and most are destroyed. Over time, your body naturally processes and clears away these treated fat cells, leaving a leaner, more sculpted area.*
Weight Loss vs. Fat Reduction
We are all born with a certain number of fat cells. It is a common misconception that weight loss and fat reduction are the same. This is not the case. When we lose weight, fat cells shrink, while fat reduction decreases the number of fat cells in your body by removing them.* Coolsculpting technology is a form of non-surgical fat reduction that reduces fat cells in a specific area so that they cannot return. In other words, fat cells that are no longer there can’t get bigger.
CoolSculpting reduces many, but not all, of the fat cells in each treated area so it is possible to still gain or lose weight in the area after the procedure; however, patients will notice themselves being generally thinner, and they will feel better, look better, and will have their clothes fit better.*
What Will Happen During My CoolSculpting Procedure?
Performed in the comfort of Westfield Plastic Surgery Center’s Omaha office, you will begin your Coolsculpting treatment with an introduction to the equipment. Dr. Ayoub will then:
- Position the device on the areas you want to target.
- Initiate controlled cooling to freeze fat cells.
- End the treatment after approximately one to two hours.
Because the treatment is non-invasive, there is little to no discomfort and no downtime for the Coolsculpting procedure.*
How Many Coolsculpting Treatments Will I Need?
The number of Coolsculpting procedures required for you to see results will depend on the area of the body and amount of fat you want to reduce. Results are most effective when the area is smaller and fat cells are concentrated. Omaha patients who want to reduce fat on multiple areas of their bodies with the CoolSculpting procedure will likely need more than one treatment to see the results that they want.
How Long Do Coolsculpting Results Last?
If you maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly, the results of your Coolsculpting treatment will last for years.* However, if you do gain weight after the procedure or would like to reshape problem areas, you can come in for additional sessions. Ideally, patients will maintain their results by practicing good diet and exercise habits.
Recovering From Your Coolsculpting Procedure
One of the reasons Omaha patients love Coolsculpting compared to surgical procedures (such as liposuction) is that it’s quicker, more affordable, and has no downtime.* Patients may experience minimal symptoms for the first few days after treatment such as:
- Minor swelling
- Some bruising
However, these are minor and will not preventing you from doing any of your normal activities such as going to work, the gym, or missing out on the things you love. Best of all, patients gradually shed fat cells over a period of six to eight weeks without the pain and recovery time associated with conventional liposuction.*
