Farrell Plastic Surgery & Laser Center- CoolSculpting procedure3 Reasons Why You Should Consider a CoolSculptingⓇ Procedure

CoolSculptingⓇ is a great way to finalize your weight loss journey by getting rid of stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to exercise. It can be so frustrating when you work hard to lose weight and achieve your body goals, only to be stopped by a stubborn area on your body. CoolSculptingⓇ procedures can help finalize your goals by using cryolipolysis, which destroys fat cells which are then safely absorbed and processed by your lymphatic system. It is an alternative to liposuction without being a more involved and invasive procedure. Continue reading to find out more about this amazing procedure.


The fact that CoolSculptingⓇ is a non-invasive fat removal procedure makes it a very approachable choice for our patients. You won’t have to go under anesthesia, and typically the procedure takes no more than an hour to be fully complete. It also means that there is little to no recovery time. You may feel some slight discomfort for a short time, but you can get back to your normal routine almost immediately after the procedure.

Simple Process

The procedure involves placing the CoolSculptingⓇ device over the area in which you are looking to remove fat. The device will then slowly internally freeze the fat cells in the area which permanently eliminates them. You may feel a slight cold or numbing sensation for the first few minutes of the procedure, but then that sensation goes away. It’s very relaxing for most of our patients; patients often listen to music, work on their laptop, or leisurely read their book of choice during the procedure. All the while, that stubborn area of fat is slowly being taken care of. However, while the procedure only takes an hour, it will not provide immediate results.

After the procedure, the fat cells have been “frozen away,” but they still need to be absorbed by your body to get rid of them. This can take some time. Typically, patients see some improvement by 1 month, but the most dramatic results will occur somewhere around the 3-month mark. While you do have to wait sometime, so long as you maintain your health and weight, you no longer have to exert yourself to try and get rid of the stubborn fat.

Long Lasting Results

Fat cells that have been destroyed through cryolipolysis will never come back! Your results are permanent, so long as you maintain your weight. If you put on weight, it will appear in other areas that fat remains.
