fearnomirror-large-mari-horizWhat Is CoolSculpting®?

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:

  • Abdomen
  • Knees
  • Inner or outer thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Arms
  • 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.

What Are the Benefits of CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses extreme cooling energy to target specific stubborn fat areas on the body and blast them away. This FDA-approved treatment is safe and effective and can remove up to 25 percent of targeted fat cells after a single treatment, so it is no surprise that more and more patients choose CoolSculpting over other more invasive surgical options to tackle their fat.

CoolSculpting comes with many benefits, including:

Minimally Invasive

Not too long ago, the only way to permanently remove fat was to choose a surgical procedure such as liposuction or tummy tuck. Even though liposuction, for instance, is a relatively simple surgical procedure, it still involves incisions, anesthesia, and downtime for recovery. With CoolSculpting, Dr. Ayoub can slim down specific areas of your body by simply applying the CoolSculpting applicators to your trouble areas over a series of sessions. And because it is minimally invasive, you will not need any downtime afterward! 

Quick & Easy

Each session of CoolSculpting with Dr. Ayoub can be completed in as little as 35 minutes. While every patient’s needs vary, no matter the area of your body that you choose to have treated, you can expect your experience to be quick and easy. During each CoolSculpting treatment session, a small cooling pack will be placed on the treatment area or areas. Some patients may experience some slight tugging or pinching from the vacuum end of the applicator. Still, this minimal discomfort will soon stop as the cooling packs begin to freeze and eliminate the targeted pockets of fat.

Natural-Looking Results

Results from CoolSculpting are always smooth and natural-looking, and there are no scars left behind. After just one quick session, your treatment area will begin to appear smoother and more contoured. Most of the targeted fat cells will be eliminated from your body within the first two months after your first procedure, but some patients see natural-looking, noticeable results after just four weeks. Patients in Omaha can expect to see their final results six months after their first CoolSculpting session.

Safe & Effective

CoolSculpting is a safe and effective way to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat on the body without invasive surgery like liposuction or tummy tuck. Because no incisions are made on the body, anesthesia is not required, making CoolSculpting a great choice for patients who want to slim down without the downtime and recovery required of invasive surgery. 

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.*

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.

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:

  • Redness
  • Minor swelling
  • Discomfort
  • 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.*

CoolSculpting FAQs

CoolSculpting sessions can vary in length depending on several factors, but typically range between 30 minutes and 1 hour per treatment area. Here’s a more detailed breakdown:

    Individual treatment area: Smaller areas like the chin or arms may only take 30-35 minutes, while larger areas like the abdomen or thighs could require up to 60 minutes.

  • Use of dual applicators: Advanced machines like CoolSculpting® Elite can use two applicators simultaneously, treating two areas at once, potentially reducing overall session time if targeting multiple areas.
  • Number of areas treated: Treating multiple areas in a single session naturally extends the total time.

Therefore, a single CoolSculpting session can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours, depending on the factors mentioned above. It’s crucial to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Ayoub, who can assess your specific needs and provide an accurate estimate for the duration of your session.

While CoolSculpting permanently removes treated fat cells, gaining weight after the procedure can still impact your results. Here’s what happens:

  • Moderate weight gain (5-10 pounds): This is unlikely to significantly impact your CoolSculpting results.
  • Significant weight gain: If you gain a considerable amount of weight, the remaining fat cells can enlarge, causing you to appear larger overall, even in the treated areas. In some extreme cases, fat from other areas might even migrate and fill the treated areas to some extent.

Maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine is crucial to maximize and maintain your CoolSculpting results. This helps prevent remaining fat cells from expanding and ensures you continue to enjoy the sculpted look achieved through the procedure.

The most popular areas people choose to get treated with CoolSculpting include:

1. Abdomen: Stubborn belly fat, particularly love handles and lower abdomen bulge, are commonly addressed with CoolSculpting.

2. Thighs: Both inner and outer thighs, including saddlebags, can be effectively treated to achieve a more sculpted appearance.

3. Flanks: Often referred to as “love handles,” these are another popular area for CoolSculpting, as they can be resistant to traditional weight loss methods.

4. Back: Bra bulge, or fat accumulation under the bra line, and other areas of the back can be targeted for a smoother and more defined look.

5. Arms: CoolSculpting can address unwanted arm flab, particularly for individuals who struggle to lose fat in this area.

6. Chin: A double chin can be effectively reduced with CoolSculpting, resulting in a more defined jawline and contoured profile.

7. Underarms: CoolSculpting can help eliminate unwanted armpit fat, providing a smoother appearance and potentially reducing chafing.

8. Buttocks: Banana rolls, or excess fat under the buttocks, can be treated with CoolSculpting for a more lifted and contoured look.

9. Knees: CoolSculpting can address stubborn fat around the knees, contributing to a slimmer and more toned leg appearance.
