CoolSculpting

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical treatment for unwanted pockets of fat. The advanced body sculpting tool uses a technology called cryolipolysis, which essentially freezes your fat cells.

When applied to your skin, the cooling mechanism in CoolSculpting targets the fat cells underneath and freezes them, which disrupts the integrity of the cell and destroys them. Over the next two months or so, your body processes and removes the destroyed fat cells, leading to a slimmer, trimmer you.

Am I a good candidate for CoolSculpting?

Dr. Ghoshal determines if you’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting when you come to the office for a consultation. Although CoolSculpting can help freeze fat off your body, it isn’t a weight-loss procedure like gastric bypass. Ideally, you should be following a healthy diet, getting regular exercise, and be close to your desired weight to be considered a good candidate.

CoolSculpting can trim the fat from many common trouble spots, including:

  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Stomach
  • Flank
  • Arms

CoolSculpting can also be used to get rid of the submental fat under your chin.

What can I expect during CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting with Dr. Ghoshal is a relaxing experience. After the CoolSculpting tool is applied to your trouble area, you can sit and relax, read a book, scroll through social media, or draft a few emails.

You may feel some tugging initially as the applicator gets to work, but any discomfort should disappear within a few minutes as the area numbs. The entire treatment takes 30-60 minutes, and there’s no downtime following your session, so you can go right back to your usual activities.

You may need more than one session to get your desired look. Dr. Ghoshal can help you determine how many treatments of CoolSculpting you need when you come in for care.

You should start to notice an improvement in your shape about three weeks after your session, with continued improvements over the next two months.

Is the fat gone for good?

CoolSculpting destroys your fat cells, so once they’re gone, they don’t come back. However, that doesn’t mean you should stop your healthy eating and exercise program. Dr. Ghoshal finds that many of her patients feel more motivated to stick with their healthy eating and exercise program after CoolSculpting because of the effects it has on their figure.
