CoolSculpting is best for small to moderate localized pockets of fat. The CoolMax treatment applicator can "debulk" larger areas, however, you are not likely to have "all abdomen fat gone." You can expect 20-25% reduction with each treatment. Look for results at 3 months instead of 3 weeks. Quicker results are seen with liposuction, but even with this procedure, you may not be able to obtain your goal of "all abdomen fat gone." Best of luck
Time duration between treatments
there is no specific maximum number of treatments for the cool sculpting procedure, it is prudent to wait at least one month between each session. The biggest concern with overtreatment or an appropriate placement of the handpiece is that it could lead to an indentation. After approximately 2 to 3 treatments, it may be wise to wait anywhere from 2 to 4 months to see if you need further treatments.
Again, cool sculpting is not a weight-loss device therefore the treatment plan which includes diet and exercise can give you better results.

Coolsculpting is an excellent form of non-invasive fat reduction for the right patient. Some applicators take 1 or 2 hours but the new advantage applicators take only 35 minutes and have significantly less risk for delayed onset pain (especially in the abdomen). Results are seen at 2 months and typically 1-3 treatments will be necessary on each area to achieve ideal results. The number of treatments depends on the amount of fat there and the patient's goals. There is not downtime and the results can be impressive in the right patient. We also use the Zimmer Z-wave for improved patient comfort and added results. The best candidates are those who are in pretty good shape with areas of stubborn fat that won't go away no matter what.
