During your first visit Dr. Ali will look at your whole body from different angles, take measurements, and target the specific areas where you want to eliminate fat. For some people, one CoolSculpting treatment may be enough. For other patients, a customized treatment plan may include multiple treatments.
On Your CoolSculpting Treatment Day
Remember, CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure. Your fat will be “frozen” – but there are no incisions and no anesthetic needed.
A gel pad and applicator will be applied to the targeted area of fat. The CoolSculpting applicator will then be applied to deliver controlled, targeted cooling to the fat.
The CoolSculpting procedure can be a little chilly, and you feel intense cold on the target area initially. As the area numbs within 5 to 10 minutes, this feeling usually subsides.
The CoolSculpting applicator also uses a mild vacuum to draw fatty tissue into the applicator cup, so you may also feel some slight pulling, tugging, or mild pinching. While slightly uncomfortable, most patients agree that it is painful. And many people simply read, check email, or even take a nap during the process.
The entire process only takes 30 minutes to an hour, depending g upon how much fat is frozen and how many body areas are treated during your visit.
After Your CoolSculpting Treatment
There is no downtime with CoolSculpting. You can even drive yourself home and/or return to work the same day.
Following the procedure, there may sometimes be some temporary redness, swelling, blanching (whiteness), bruising, tingling, stinging, or tenderness. This is perfectly normal. In a few patients there can be cramping, aching, itching, skin firmness or sensitivity. Chin liposuction may give you a sensation of fullness in the back of the throat.
All of these effects are temporary and will typically resolve within a few days – or a week or two at most. As with any medical procedure, Dr. Ali will explain in more detail what to expect in terms of potential after effects.
A follow-up assessment will be scheduled with Dr. Ali’s office, to review your CoolSculpting results, as well as to schedule additional treatments, if any.
Seeing Results after CoolSculpting
Now that the fat has been frozen, your body will gradually eliminate the dead fat cells over time. Initial results can begin to be seen in as little as three week. After three months the results should be substantially visible, and will be fully complete in no more than 6 months.
Fat cells that have been eliminated never come back. That does not mean you can never gain weight, though. So, maintaining a healthy lifestyle after your CoolSculpting will ensure the best long-term results!
