What state can I go to and get cool sculpting no more than $500 per procedure?

Coolsculpting/Liposuction/Body Contouring/ High Definition Procedures

I appreciate your question.

Prices vary from practice to practice.  I would recommend that you see a board certified plastic surgeon in your area who specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery and who is also a member of The American Society of Plastic Surgery.  You can also go to the Zeltiq website to find a CoolSculpting provider in your area.  Then You can call their offices in advance and ask for quotes prior to scheduling consultations.

The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.

Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.

Best of luck!

CoolSculpting Price

CoolSculpting prices are somewhat regulated by the company Zeltiq, whom manufactures the device.  Therefore, pricing is pretty similar between all offices in the same region.  You should be more concerned with the experience of the office and of the CoolSculpting technician, rather than price, so that you know you are getting the right treatment you need.  Make sure you go to an office that is Certified in CoolSculpting and has a Certified CoolSculpting Technician.  There are some knock-off machines out there, so you need to be careful if just looking by price.

Cost of Cool Sculpting

Be careful seeking a low price only. Our lowest price we can offer each treatment is set from the Zeltiq company. If a center is offering or advertising at a $500 range they are not successful, breaking the rules, and most likely are hurting for business. The other possibility is that it is not the safe and patented Zeltiq device. Because this is a popular device and most likely there are several centers in Atlanta (like in Columbus where I practice) make your decision based on safety, what location has certified providers and who has a great before and after photo site to help you decide your treatment. That is how we set our practice apart in our area. Best of Luck.

Choose Safety and Expertise With CoolSculpting

Although CoolSculpting is a low-risk
procedure, you still need to be treted by an expert. Look for good
results and someone you can trust. Best, Dr. Emer.

CoolSculpting pricing

If you find CoolSculpting for less than $500 per cycle, you have likely found a provider who is not using the FDA-approved CoolSculpting device.  The manufacturer of the CoolSculpting device (Zeltiq) controls the lowest pricing allowed for the procedure.  Any office offering it for less than that is operating dishonestly.Now, it is allowed to offer tiered pricing, so the price per cycle can drop to $500/cycle once you've purchased more than a certain number of cycles.  It's the average price per cycle that has to remain above the manufacturer's set-point.

Beware of low prices

The pricing for CoolSculpting is set by Zelitq, the manufacturer, so the cost will be similar in any state.  If you are looking for treatment "no more than $500 per procedure,"  you are in danger of being treated with an imitation device.  The genuine Zeltiq CoolScupting technology has undergone thorough investigation by the FDA, and has numerous safety protocols built into the system.  These measures ensure not only an effective treatment, but also a safer treatment.

How much does CoolSculpting cost?

How much does CoolSculpting Cost? This is a question we receive multiples times per day. The fee for CoolSculpting may differ slightly from one office to the next however the fees are regulated by the manufacturer. There is a minimum pricing guideline. You will find that every office is fairly comparable in pricing. Best of luck!

CoolSculpting Pricing

The pricing of a CoolSculpting procedure is regulated by the makers of the device.  It is most important to find an experienced, reputable provider who can develop an appropriate treatment plan based upon your goals and anatomy.  Make sure your provider has received appropriate training and is using the actual Zeltiq device.  It is unlikely you will find a legitimate provider offering "rock bottom" pricing.  CoolSculpting is an excellent technology.  Our patients consistently see excellent results, with basically no downtime, that justify the expense.

Most important point here is to determine whether that is the most appropriate treatment for you depending on your goals.  As mentioned previously the price range is heavily regulated by the company.

Prices are regulated

Thanks for the great question! Although it would be nice to head over to another state, you probably won't find too much variation in prices. The prices offices are able to charge for treatments are somewhat regulated by Zeltiq (the company which makes coolsculpt). They do this to protect practices who have purchased machines from having someone down the street try and slash prices to get more business. It's a great technology, and in my opinion is worth the money! Best of luck in your area!~Dr. Sieber
