About CoolSculpting

Bass Plastic Surgery in New York, NY was one of the first in the country to offer CoolSculpting, a revolutionary technology that represents the first significant device used for noninvasive body contouring. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Lawrence Bass has been at the forefront of nonsurgical body contouring research, having been an investigator in the FDA clinical studies for this product. For those individuals who have small to moderate bulges on the tummy, love handles, and back or chest folds, Coolsculpting offers a noninvasive option for fat reduction when diet and exercise alone just aren't working. Advantages include no anesthesia, no pain, and no recovery time. CoolSculpting uses a technology called cryolipolysis that successfully freezes the fat cells without harming the surrounding tissues or muscles. Fat cells that have been cold shocked fail to renew (apoptosis) and are eliminated slowly over several months. 

Best Candidates

The best candidates for CoolSculpting will have some or all of the following:

  • Minimal to moderate stubborn fat deposits
  • A desire to reduce the size of their waist, thighs, and arms
  • A desire for a noninvasive approach with no downtime
  • Realistic expectations for their outcome

What to Expect

CoolSculpting will be performed onsite in our office as an outpatient treatment. A roll of skin and fat is drawn into an applicator by firm suction. The fat is then chilled under careful temperature control for 60 minutes, becoming so cold that it is firm and doughy but not cold enough for water to freeze. Typically, 2 applications are made in a single treatment.  During the treatment, patients may watch TV, read, nap, or use their cell phone, as it is noninvasive and does not produce pain. Some redness or tenderness may occur in the treated area for a few days afterward.

Anticipated Results

Over the next 2 – 3 months, fat cells die and are eliminated. The contour will reduce slowly over 3 months or more. A moderate reduction in fat is expected, which will be noticeable in how clothing fits and in photographs. Studies have shown that on average about 20% of the fat layer is removed in a single application. This treatment is ideal for those who only need a small amount of fat reduction to achieve their aesthetic goals or who are unwilling to undergo a surgical procedure like liposuction. but want to make progress on contour reduction.
