CoolSculpting Treatments in Sarasota and Tampa

 CoolSculpting® is an FDA-approved fat removal procedure that selectively freezes and destroys fat cells in a targeted area. At Holcomb - Kreithen Plastic Surgery & MedSpa, we are able to offer dual sculpting, where two CoolSculpting machines are used simultaneously to treat paired body areas such as arms, legs, the upper and lower back, and the right and left sides of the abdomen and flanks. We also use the latest applicators with updated technology that enables a shorter treatment time of just 35 minutes.

What is CoolSculpting?

Discovered and developed by scientists at Harvard, CoolSculpting is a completely non-surgical technology that works by using extreme cold to freeze pockets of stubborn fat and permanently remove them from the body. This process is known as cryolipolysis. CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved body contouring treatment that is best for those who have a healthy lifestyle and who are close to their goal weight. 

What areas can CoolSculpting treat?

The CoolSculpting technology is constantly advancing with the development of new applicators to target an increasing number of areas of the body, including:

  • Area under the chin
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Back/bra fat
  • Neck
  • Buttocks
  • Arms
  • Flanks (love handles)
  • Male chest

Before & After

CoolSculpting treatment details

CoolSculpting treatments do not require any injections, anesthesia, or incisions. You will recline on a chair and a cool sheet will be placed on your skin. After this, cooling panel applicators will be set on top of the cooling sheet. From these panel applicators, vacuum pressure and intense cold will be delivered to the areas to be treated. Most patients have numbness or tingling sensations due to the extreme cold.

After each session is over, the treated areas will initially feel very firm and very cold, but they will gradually return to normal body temperature. Areas of the body that have been previously treated with CoolSculpting can be re-treated for further improvement in a process called “Treat to Complete”. Multiple body sites can be treated on the same day, if desired. We have had quite a few patients pursue many treatments in a single day to fast track their overall progress and results.

Candidates for CoolSculpting

If you’re considering CoolSculpting in the Sarasota and Tampa area, it may be the perfect procedure for you. The best candidates for CoolSculpting: 

  • Are near their goal weight
  • Are not pregnant
  • Have enough fat to treat
  • Are generally healthy non-smokers
  • Are not planning to get liposuction
  • Understand the treatment and have realistic expectations

Recovery and results

Immediately after your CoolSculpting treatment, you can return to your regular activities. Side effects may include tenderness to the touch, swelling, bruising, cramping, and sensitivity. These will go away within a few days to one week. 

Patients will begin to see results in as little as one month, but more typically in 2 to 4 months as approximately 24% of the treated fat cells undergo a process called apoptosis, which results in the elimination and metabolism of their lipid content. The contour of the treated areas improves during this process of fat cell elimination.

FAQ

Is CoolSculpting painful?

CoolSculpting is not painful, but you will feel extremely cold temperatures which may result in numbness and/or tingling. The vacuum part of the procedure also creates a tugging sensation that some find uncomfortable. Some patients also report some discomfort during the cell elimination massage, which happens after the panels are removed. If you’re concerned about any discomfort during the procedure, please bring this up during your consultation so that we can explain more in-depth details for you.

How long is a CoolSculpting treatment?

The average length of time of a CoolSculpting treatment is 30 minutes per area; however, this will depend on which areas are being treated.
