CoolSculpting® is a safe and effective way to remove stubborn fat which has not responded to healthy eating and exercise. This highly specialized treatment requires no surgery, incisions or downtime! Because fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues, we can safely deliver precisely controlled cooling using the CoolSculpting® technology to gently and effectively target fat cells under the skin. The fat cells targeted during the process are crystallized (frozen), and then die, and over time, the body eliminates these dead cells by naturally processing the fat. You are left with a more sculpted body!
Thanks to our customized CoolSculpting® treatment plans, you can focus on reshaping your body and addressing your problem areas. You can continue with additional sessions to take those results to the next level. Your individualized treatment plan will be tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
After selecting the areas to treat, the device is positioned on your body and the controlled cooling process begins. The best part is, you can sit back and relax. You may find yourself reading, checking your email, or even taking a nap all while saying goodbye to stubborn fat.
Am I a good candidate?
Good candidates for the CoolSculpting® fat reduction procedure are those that feel they have unwanted fat in certain areas that they just can’t get rid of through regular diet and exercise. Patients should be in overall good health and not suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. Since this is not a treatment for obesity, patients should be within 10-20 pounds of their ideal body weight. CoolSculpting® will not tighten loose skin, so patients with loose or hanging skin are not good candidates.
What is the recovery like?
Because CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical procedure, patients are able to return to normal activities immediately after treatment. There may be some mild soreness of the treated area similar to the feeling after working out. The treated areas may be tender to touch for about 2 weeks, but pain medicine is generally not required.
Dr. de Ramón has a specially trained medical staff to offer personal care throughout the recovery process. Post-op patients are also given his personal cell phone number to contact him in case of problems or questions.
How much does the CoolSculpting® procedure cost?
