Countless people have struggled to rid their bodies of stubborn excess fat. Even if diet and exercise have helped you lose weight, chances are that you still struggle to lose fat from certain trouble areas. If you are at or near your goal weight and would like to eliminate that annoying muffin top, 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.
A breast band and a compression bra will be placed over the breasts to reduce swelling and bruising. It is important to get adequate rest during the first few days, and prescribed medication will reduce any discomfort that may exist.
Most women have the stamina to return to work and resume their normal routine 4 to 7 days after surgery. However, patients should avoid strenuous physical activity and exercise at this time.
Patients can begin to ease back into light physical activity, but they must avoid all chest exercises.
Patients are free to fully resume their normal exercise regimens (including chest exercises).
The abdomen and lower back are two of the most common trouble areas that accumulate stubborn fat. After CoolSculpting®, you’ll be ready to show off your toned tummy with no muffin top in sight.
The hips, especially in women, are prone to harboring excess fat. CoolSculpting® can slim the hip area to produce a more slender, attractive silhouette so you can wear that little black dress and show off your curves with confidence.
Troublesome fat can plague both the inner and outer thighs. CoolSculpting® allows you to have more svelte thighs. It can eliminate bothersome saddlebags and even reduce chafing between the legs caused by excess inner thigh fat.

CoolSculpting® works by applying controlled cooling to the treatment area, which targets the fat cells and freezes them. Once they are frozen, the fat cells die and are naturally eliminated through the body’s metabolic processes.
During the first few minutes, patients feel pressure and intense cold that soon dissipates. The length of your treatment will depend on the number of areas being treated, and Dr. Chiu may recommend additional sessions to reach your desired goals.
Most patients notice their improved body contours three weeks after treatment and more dramatic results after two months. Your body will continue eliminating the residual frozen fat cells for up to six months, at which time you will see your final results.
CoolSculpting® is designed to target fat that is resistant to diet and exercise; it should not be used as a weight-loss treatment. Ideal patients are close to their goal weight and have stubborn fat that they have been unable to eliminate with a healthy lifestyle.
