What Is CoolSculpting
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 cold temperatures from the CoolSculpting device freezes fat which is then eliminated through the body naturally. 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 crystalize. These crystalized cells can no longer function and are absorbed into the body as waste, leading to a slimmer, more defined profile. This treatment is a completely safe and effective way to reduce fat and sculpt your body to your ideal contours. CoolSculpting is FDA-approved for non-invasive fat reduction on the following treatment areas:
Because the crystalized fat cells are gradually absorbed by the body’s natural processes, most patients see visible fat reduction in as little as three weeks with repeated treatments. This gradual process allows for results to feel and look more natural so no-one would guess you had a treatment done. CoolSculpting results are unmatched by other non-invasive body contouring procedures, especially when done by an experienced doctor. A consultation with one of our CoolSculpting master certified specialists is the best way to determine what your unique CoolSculpting treatment plan will look like. Each plan is made to fit your individual body type, desired results, and personal concerns.
What Results Can I Expect After CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting has undergone extensive clinical testing and FDA-approval that shows it can effectively reduce fat at the treatment area with only a single treatment. Fat freezing ensures that the fat cells are gone so that your results are long-lasting, and you can keep your new look. To achieve best results, most patients undergo a package of treatments that best addresses their specific concerns, which can be determined during an in-depth consultation with our CoolSculpting specialists. Though it may take multiple treatments to get your desired results you will notice some change after just one CoolSculpting treatment.

For years I’ve struggled with my bra back roll. You know, the part right under the bra line. After having my last child. I decided to tackle a weight loss challenge, but the bra roll remained a constant struggle to eliminate. Not too long after losing 20+ lbs I built up the courage to schedule a consultation with SACS CoolSculpting Specialist Nicole Fernandez. The most amazing part was she offered treatment for both sides in ONE HOUR instead of two. This office DUO-Sculpts!! Which helps with saving me time with my hectic schedule. I wasn’t uncomfortable during the treatment, I actually took a nap! After only 3 weeks I could see the bra roll diminish is size. Eager for my second treatment, I returned six weeks later and to my amazement the before photo dropped my jaw. What a difference! I am more than satisfied with my results. I highly recommend this office for any and all CoolSculpting treatments. The ladies in this office made this experience worthwhile.

I had Coolsculpting done with Nicole and Had such a great experience from the time I walked in the door to the time I walked out. The treatment was completed in less than an hour per area and I was able to get some of my work done while I was getting my chin and inner thighs treated. The dual sculpting made the process short. I would highly recommend getting CoolSculpting with San Antonio Cosmetic Surgery.

Having a procedure which has NO down time was amazing! Decided to try coolsculpting for my upper abdominal area which is so difficult to target and reduce. Once I read all the data on how the fat cells are frozen then metabolized I was sold. One hour of my day, back to the gym by 6pm and no pain, what more can a women ask for. My second treatment was even easier since my results where beginning to show, the excitement of no more abdominal bulge made me ecstatic!!! I would recommend this treatment to anyone who needs to get ready for that party, bikini beach body or just to make you feel great about yourself!

What Happens During CoolSculpting?
When you go in for your CoolSculpting consultation you should be prepared with any and all questions that you have about the procedure as well as examples of your desired results. It is important to be realistic about your expectations from this procedure. During the consultation the specialist will examine you, go over your medical history, and learn about your concerns and desires. This way your unique treatment plan can be created. 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 such as the chin or ankles. The specialized applicator is applied to the pocket of fat and the patient will feel a suction-like sensation followed by an intense cold. This is not painful but may cause some mild discomfort, though most patients find this completely tolerable and are relaxed during the procedure. This suctioning technique allows the 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. Most of our CoolSculpting 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.
When Can I Return to My Normal Schedule?
One of the many benefits of this treatment is that it’s quick and doesn’t disrupt your life. 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. Though there is no downtime for recovering from CoolSculpting, there may be some side effects. Most patients experience redness and numbness at the treatment area, but this subsides quickly and with little discomfort. Your CoolSculpting specialist will go over all of the possible side effects from CoolSculpting at your consultation so that you are completely comfortable and knowledgeable when coming in for treatment.
When Can I Expect to See Results?
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.
Am I a Candidate?
CoolSculpting is a great fat reducing, body sculpting treatment, though it is safe for most people it is important to know if you are a good candidate prior to getting treatment. Your CoolSculpting specialist will go over this during the consultation. 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.

Does CoolSculpting Work?
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.
How many times do you have to do CoolSculpting?
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.
What are the risks of CoolSculpting?
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.
How long does it take to start seeing results from CoolSculpting?
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.
Are there any side effects of CoolSculpting?
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.
Can ice packs reduce belly fat?
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 coolsculpting professional for your treatment.
How long does a CoolSculpting session last?
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.
Is CoolSculpting permanent?
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.
