Freeze the fat at San Antonio’s Premier CoolSculpting Location.
San Antonio Cosmetic Surgery is a leading CoolSculpting provider in the San Antonio area. We are the first to offer the new CoolSculpting Elite in San Antonio! Our expert CoolSculpting specialists are skilled at producing optimal results for patients looking for the best in non-surgical fat reduction. Experience a new level of cool with CoolSculpting Elite.
Previously, patients could expect to notice results within one to three months after CoolSculpting treatment, with final results appearing after 6 months or more. With CoolSculpting Elite, improvement in the treatment area may be visible within 30 days of treatment, with full results appearing within 12 weeks.
A single treatment generally yields a 25-30% reduction in fat to the treated area. However, each area can receive multiple treatments if needed in order to achieve the desired results. Many patients are able to realize their ideal results within one to three treatment sessions.
Treatments should be adequately spaced in order to give the body time to recover, as well as to allow results to appear before a second treatment is applied to an area. It is recommended that treatments be spaced at least 60 days apart, though more time may be required depending on the rate at which a patient’s results develop.

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive body sculpting treatment that reduces fat in almost any area of the body. With CoolSculpting, you can finally see the body that you’ve been working towards when you look in the mirror. Feeling and looking better is so close - with CoolSculpting fat reduction. If you are having trouble getting over the last few humps in the battle of the bulge, CoolSculpting is the treatment you’ve been looking for.
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical body contouring treatment that uses a process known as cryolipolysis to freeze and eliminate fat that is resistant to diet and exercise.
The fat freezing kills off the fat cells so that you don’t have to worry about regaining fat in that area. This technique uses a cooling handpiece that is applied to the chosen treatment area and precisely cools the underlying fat to a temperature that causes it to crystallize, which your body then naturally eliminates. This treatment is a completely safe and effective way to reduce fat and sculpt your body to your ideal contours.
CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis to eliminate fat from the body. This process causes the fat to crystallize, and they can no longer function. They are then absorbed into the body as waste and naturally eliminated.
CoolSculpting Elite is the newest generation of CoolSculpting technology. CoolSculpting Elite’s improved design boasts a more compact machine, the ability to treat up to four areas at once! With CoolSculpting Elite, you can experience over 30% more fat reduction. Get elite-level fat reduction and skin tightening with CoolSculpting Elite at San Antonio Cosmetic Surgery.
CoolSculpting Elite’s DualSculpting technology lets our CoolSculpting specialists treat multiple areas of the body simultaneously.
In fact, two CoolSculpting Elite machines may be used to treat as many as four areas at once! CoolSculpting Elite is FDA approved to treat fat bulges in the same nine areas of the body as the previous CoolSculpting machine.
One cycle takes roughly 35 minutes per area which means that 4 areas can now be treated in that time, versus the more than two hours it would take to treat the same amount of areas with a single applicator. With this exciting new feature, just imagine how quickly, conveniently, and drastically your look can change!
How did CoolSculpting get even better with CoolSculpting Elite? Faster, more comfortable treatments, and smoother, more beautiful results!
The state-of-the-art non-surgical fat reduction technology of the CoolSculpting Elite includes updated applicators that offer:
The “C” shape of the CoolSculpting Elite applicator allows for gentler suction without compromising results. Gentler suction means a more enjoyable treatment experience and faster recovery.
The CoolSculpting Elite applicator design can cover as much as 18% more tissue area at once than the previous version.
When you arrive for CoolSculpting Elite San Antonio Cosmetic Surgery's elite specialists will prepare you for treatment in the most comfortable way possible. First, a clear gel pad will be applied to the treatment site or sites. This will serve as a barrier between the cooling applicator panel and your skin.
When treatment begins, you will likely feel suction from the applicator on your skin. For the first several minutes of treatment, you may experience sensations such as mild tugging of the skin, tingling, or cold in the treatment area. However, these feelings will quickly be replaced by numbness at the treatment site. Patients are able to read, work on their phone or laptop, or even sleep in some cases.
Once the applicator is detached, the treated area or areas will be massaged for several minutes in order to separate treated fat cells, enhance results, and aid in the recovery process. This vital step in the CoolSculpting Elite process increases fat reduction by as much as 68% and ensures that patients receive the best results from their treatment.
CoolSculpting and CoolSculpting Elite are nonsurgical, noninvasive treatments. There is absolutely no downtime needed following CoolSculpting treatment. In fact, patients may even visit the gym on the same day of their treatment!

After a comprehensive consultation, during which a specific treatment plan and area is selected, CoolSculpting begins with an applicator of the appropriate size and shape. CoolSculpting technology includes additional attachments to specifically treat areas that may be small or hard to reach. The specialized applicator is applied to the pocket of fat and the patient will feel a suction-like sensation followed by intense cold. This suctioning technique allows cooling technology to best reach the fat layers without affecting the nearby tissues. As the temperature of the applicator drops, the treatment area will begin to numb.
CoolSculpting is a relaxing treatment in which most patients find it easy to catch up on their book or show while either comfortably seated or lying down. Our most popular treatments are between 35 and 45 minutes, meaning you can easily fit it into your busy schedule. San Antonio Cosmetic Surgery is proud to offer two CoolSculpting systems which can be used to efficiently treat more than one area during your CoolSculpting treatment session.
CoolSculpting does not require any anesthesia, needles, or downtime, so patients can return to work or school immediately after treatment. Patients can even continue their regular exercise routine, and CoolSculpting can be a great way to boost your great results from your workout plan. Most patients experience redness and numbness at the treatment area, but this subsides quickly and with little discomfort.
Every patient’s CoolSculpting treatment plan is unique, but most patients begin to see fat reduction at the treatment area within three weeks of their first treatment. However, these results continue to improve over the course of two to four months, especially with repeated treatments. This occurs because of the body’s natural systems that flush out fat cells at a steady rate. Living a healthy lifestyle that includes regular diet and exercise can further increase the great results you find with CoolSculpting.
Patients who are close to their ideal weight are best suited for this treatment. This is not to be used as a weight-loss solution, but rather a targeted solution and alternative to invasive procedures like liposuction. CoolSculpting can help men and women who are already living a healthy lifestyle to get rid of areas of fat that are unresponsive to diet and exercise alone.
Coolsculpting has a high success rate when it comes to removing your last bit of stubborn fat to improve your contour. Results will vary from patient to patient, and some may require more treatment sessions than others to achieve the results they want. To ensure you get the most out of your coolsculpting treatment, you should be in your healthy weight range before treatment and be committed to maintaining your weight after treatment.
Results of Coolsculpting are not immediate, as the body needs time to eliminate the treated fat cells. Patients can expect to begin seeing results after about 3 weeks, with reduced stubborn fat cells in the treatment area. However, the final results of Coolsculpting won’t be noticeable until about 6 months after the optimal treatment sessions have been completed.
The number of Coolsculpting treatments you need will depend on the severity of your stubborn fat, the size of the treatment area, and the number of treatment areas you have. Most patients will need 1-3 spaced out treatment sessions to get started. It is important to allow the body time to process and eliminate fat cells between treatment sessions. If you do not see results in 4 months, you may opt for another treatment session.
CoolSculpting is nonsurgical and noninvasive, so there are minimal risks associated with Coolsculpting. Aside from mild side effects, there is a very rare risk for developing paradoxical adipose hyperplasia. This condition occurs when the fat cells grow larger instead of smaller after treatment. The condition is not fully understood and does not appear to resolve on its own, but surgical techniques can improve its appearance.
Some of the most common side effects after Coolsculpting include redness, swelling, bruising, and skin sensitivity. These are typically mild and resolve within a few hours, allowing patients to get right back to their regular routines. Patients can also expect temporary sensation changes in the treatment area such as numbness, tingling, and aching that resolves on its one in 3-10 days.
Ice packs will not reduce belly fat the way Coolsculpting can, and can actually cause permanent damage to your skin and tissue if you’re not careful. Coolsculpting uses very precise and controlled cooling to destroy the fat cells while preventing damage to the surrounding skin and tissue. Coolsculpting should not be tried at home, and you should always see a certified oolsculpting professional for your treatment.
A Coolsculpting session can last for 30 minutes to several hours depending on the size of the treatment area. During this time, patients can sit back and relax, and usually don’t experience much discomfort after the first few minutes.
Once the treated fat cells are destroyed, they cannot come back. However, you can still gain weight in untreated areas after Coolsculpting, which could distort your results. To ensure long-lasting results from Coolsculpting, it is important to maintain your healthy weight through the proper diet and regular exercise.
