CoolSculpting® Treatment is a body contouring procedure that eliminates around half an inch from your figure. It is ideal if you are already at your ideal weight but want to further refine your form. Many patients have skin they simply cannot tighten or get rid of no matter how hard they work out. CoolSculpting helps you target those trouble areas, so you can have the curves you have been dreaming about.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Arun Rao at Rao Plastic & Hand Surgery in Tucson, AZ offers CoolSculpting treatments to help you attain a svelte form. He will meet with you to discuss your goals and determine if the body contouring procedure is the right choice for your needs.

All About CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is a fat-removal body contouring system that helps sculpt your body into the form you desire by freezing away stubborn fat pockets. Do you have love handles or a belly pouch that you just can’t tighten no matter how much you diet and work out? If so, CoolSculpting might be the perfect option. The cosmetic procedure is noninvasive, so you aren’t faced with surgery. The treatment freezes away your unwanted fat pockets to give you a smoother appearance.

With CoolSculpting, Dr. Rao uses regulated cooling (cryolipolysis) to effectively freeze away unwanted fat cells. The frozen fat cells are then discarded by the body over the course of several weeks.

Liposuction is a popular invasive way to remove unwanted fat pockets. However, there are always risks of downtime and complications. Unlike liposuction, CoolSculpting is noninvasive and has become a favored option.

The benefits of CoolSculpting include:

  • Nonsurgical

  • Performed in office at Rao Plastic & Hand Surgery in Tucson, AZ

  • Safe

  • Highly effective

  • No anesthesia needed

CoolSculpting has become a wonderful way to target trouble fat pockets that you simply can’t get rid of with dieting and exercise. You do not lose a considerable number of inches, but you do achieve a firm, more toned body with CoolSculpting.

Popular CoolSculpting treatment locations include:

  • Love handles (flank)

  • Abdomen

  • Double chin

  • Back

  • Inner and outer thighs

The best candidates for CoolSculpting should be within 20 pounds of their target weight.

CoolSculpting uses a patented technology referred to as cryolipolysis. The technique lets Dr. Rao target the fat cells in the problem area without harming your skin or muscle. During the CoolSculpting procedure, Dr. Rao will place a gel pad and applicator against your skin. The gel pad helps control the cooling which will effectively hit the fat cells paralyzing them. The device applies suction to maintain a steady area in the treatment zone. The area is cooled for approximately an hour. While the area is being cooled, you can relax, read, or nap.

Following CoolSculpting treatments, you can return to work or normal life. You might experience swelling, redness, discomfort, bruising, or sting in the treated area, but it will subside within a few days. You’ll start to notice results from CoolSculpting within three months. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they will not grow back; however, you can still gain weight in the surrounding cells that have not been treated, so you’ll want to continue to live a healthy lifestyle to maintain your appearance.
