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. There is no preparation for cool sculpting. I suggest eating a healthy meal before the procedure. Healthy diet and exercise are very important.

CoolSculpting and Preparation
Coolsculpting is a fabulous tool for reducing a bulge in a given area. We have had great results with our patients. There is absolutely no preparation. I always advise patients after the procedure to continue a healthy life style and exercise. Proper nutrition go hand in hand with consistent excellent results.
