After months of healthy eating and exercise, lingering fat deposits that just won’t budge can be frustrating and discouraging. And for many people, a procedure like liposuction isn’t an option to get rid of this unwanted fat. CoolSculpting® makes fat reduction possible without any recovery time.

What is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical body contouring treatment that reduces stubborn fat. It uses cryolipolysis to freeze fat cells. Since fat cells freeze at a lower temperature than other cells, the treatment effectively eliminates unwanted fat without harming the surrounding tissues.

We offer CoolSculpting® for the following:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks (love handles)
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Arms
  • Bra roll
  • Knees
  • Double chin

How Does CoolSculpting® Work?

A CoolSculpting® treatment at West Michigan Plastic Surgery is fast and simple. We’ll place the CoolSculpting® applicator on your treatment area, and you can read, watch TV, or even nap while the device freezes the targeted fat cells. Depending on the size of the treatment area, CoolSculpting® takes approximately one hour.

What to Expect After CoolSculpting®

One of the primary advantages of CoolSculpting® is that it’s a non-invasive, convenient treatment. There is no anesthesia, needles, or lengthy recovery. 

You can resume your daily routine immediately after CoolSculpting® without downtime. However, some mild soreness, numbness, swelling, or bruising is normal. Most side effects should subside within a few days. You may want to avoid vigorous exercise for the first day or two. It may take a few weeks for all swelling to resolve.

The results of your CoolSculpting® treatment will appear gradually. Your body will flush out the damaged fat cells over the next few months, leaving you with a slimmer, contoured figure. You can expect optimal results after two to three months.

How Long Does CoolSculpting® Last?

Most patients see a noticeable fat reduction after just one CoolSculpting® session. Occasionally, two or three treatments may be needed for optimal results. Once you achieve your desired results, they will be long-lasting. 

CoolSculpting® permanently destroys targeted fat cells. They cannot return, so your results should last as long as you maintain a stable weight. This makes good eating and exercise habits essential for long-term benefits from CoolSculpting®.

Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® can be a life-changing tool to make your body goals a reality. If you struggle with stubborn fat deposits despite exercise and a healthy diet, CoolSculpting® can help you tackle those problem areas. Good candidates for CoolSculpting® are at or near their ideal weight and committed to a healthy lifestyle. This body sculpting treatment is not a replacement for weight loss.
