Countless people have struggled to rid their bodies of stubborn excess fat. Even if diet and exercise have helped you lose weight, chances are you still struggle to lose fat from certain troublesome areas.
If you are at or near your ideal weight and would like to eliminate those annoying love handles, saddlebags, or thunder thighs and attain more slender body contours, CoolSculpting® may be the perfect solution for you. CoolSculpting® is the only FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment that uses cooling technology to gently, effectively, and permanently eliminate unwanted fat and sculpt the body.
CoolSculpting® permanently removes fat by freezing targeted fat cells. These fat cells die due to the fast temperature shift caused by targeted freezing. The body will naturally remove the dead cells over the next few weeks. Unlike diet and exercise, when these fat cells die, they are eliminated permanently. The cold temperatures used during CoolSculpting® only affect the fat cells, leaving the surrounding healthy cells undamaged.
By removing fat in targeted locations, the patient’s muscle definition becomes sharper and more visible. This will reveal muscles that would otherwise be concealed behind a layer of fat. This is ideal for patients interested in enhancing the appearance of muscles they’ve earned at the gym.
Fat removal in targeted areas can adjust the body’s contours, creating a slimmer, more attractive body profile. This is ideal for patients seeking the ideal hourglass shape but cannot achieve it through diet and exercise alone.
No downtime is required after a CoolSculpting® treatment, and patients may return to daily activities immediately. Some patients may experience minor tingling within 5 to 10 minutes of the treatment’s conclusion as increased blood flow occurs. This pins-and-needles sensation should only last a few minutes.
Initial results may start to become noticeable as fat cells are metabolized. Minor side effects, such as bruising or swelling, will resolve.
Initial results should become fully visible as fat cells redistribute in response to the loss of fat deposits.
Final results will continue to develop, and newly defined body contours will begin to emerge.

Final results of CoolSculpting® may take four to six months to fully develop as tissues adjust to having less fat around them. Some patients may choose repeated treatments to provide more extensive results.
The fat cells that CoolSculpting® removes are gone for good and will not regrow. Therefore, CoolSculpting® results are effectively permanent. However, CoolSculpting® will not prevent new fat deposits from forming in other areas should the patient gain weight following treatment. For this reason, patients should undergo CoolSculpting® when their weight is stable, and they are near their ideal weight.
Side effects of CoolSculpting® are generally minimal to non-existent. Some patients may experience minor discomfort during the treatment as the panels cool. Temporary numbness, swelling, bruising, or related conditions can occur occasionally but will usually fade within two to three days.
CoolSculpting® is FDA approved to treat fat deposits under the chin and jawline and around the thighs, abdomen, upper arms, and flanks. It can also treat deposits on the upper abdomen (bra fat), back, and underneath the buttocks.
CoolSculpting® treatments can vary in price depending on the areas being treated and how many sessions are needed. You can discuss these details with Dr. Chiu during your consultation for a better estimate of the price.
