When you work hard to achieve the body of your dreams, it can be very frustrating when areas of it don’t want to cooperate with your plan. Unfortunately, this is a very common occurrence. Not all fat responds to diet and exercise, and nearly everyone has at least one part of their body where stubborn fat causes lumps, bumps or wobbles that make them feel self-conscious. Sometimes the way that we feel can be significant enough to prevent us from wearing the clothes that we would like to or participating in activities that we enjoy.

We understand the effects that obstinate pockets of fat can have on the way that you feel about your body. However, we also understand that you may not necessarily want to undergo invasive cosmetic surgery to eliminate the problem. Fortunately, there is an alternative solution - CoolSculpting®. We are thrilled to be able to offer our patients the benefit of expertly administered CoolSculpting® performed right here at our San Diego office.


What is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® is a revolutionary, FDA-approved technique for the permanent removal of fat cells from the body. This non-invasive technique involves freezing the fat cells so that the body can then excrete them as waste – a process that takes several weeks. You may also hear of it called ‘fat freezing’ or 'cryolipolysis', but they all refer to the same process.

The CoolSculpting® procedure is very safe and simple. The cooling applicator is applied to the area of your body that you wish to target. This then delivers controlled cooling to the targeted fat. As fat is more sensitive to temperature than the skin, the fat cells are destroyed without there being any damage or disruption to the skin, nerves, muscles and blood vessels. Our experienced and skilled cosmetic surgeon ensures that the procedure is performed to the highest standard from start to finish to give you an exceptional experience.

Patient care is our priority and we will do everything necessary to make you comfortable throughout your treatment. You may feel intense cold initially, but the area quickly becomes numb. No pain relief is necessary, and most patients read, listen to music or simply relax during their treatment. The entire appointment should last around an hour, but the exact timings will depend on the area of your body that you are having treated.

How quickly can the results of CoolSculpting®​​​​​​​ be seen?

The changes can be seen as early as 4 weeks and will take up to 3 months. During this time, you will be advised to stick to a healthy, balanced diet, avoid alcohol and drink plenty of water as this will help you achieve the best results.
