Men and women at our Columbus, Ohio, practice rely on CoolSculpting for targeted, convenient nonsurgical fat reduction. If you want a flatter tummy, shapelier hips, or slimmer thighs, CoolSculpting is a popular, FDA-cleared liposuction alternative that minimizes those bulges that resist diet and exercise. There is no downtime following a CoolSculpting treatment with Dr. Anne Taylor, and many patients see excellent results after just one session.

Is CoolSculpting Right for You?

You have a number of body contouring options at Aesthetica Surgery & Spa in Columbus, both surgical and nonsurgical. CoolSculpting offers a liposuction alternative for those who would rather avoid surgery. A good candidate for this treatment:

  • Is at or near his or her ideal weight
  • Wants to reduce specific, small areas of fat
  • Leads a healthy lifestyle that includes exercise and a nutritious diet
  • Has skin that retains most of its elasticity

CoolSculpting is best for both men and women who are near their ideal weight but can’t seem to shed fat in certain areas. It can treat areas of fat on the:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Hips
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Back (including a “bra bulge”)
  • Double chin

People interested in targeting fat that causes a double chin may also be good candidates for KYBELLA® injections.

Dr. Taylor can help you decide which option is best for you during your one-on-one consultation.

A Customized Procedure

Dr. Taylor creates a treatment plan based on your specific needs. Depending on your areas of concern, the CoolSculpting procedure involves specialized applicators. For example, if you want to reduce fat in your upper and lower abdomen, your skin and tissue will be gently sucked between 2 cooling panels that carefully cool the fat without damaging the skin. Such treatments take about an hour per area.

For treatment areas that don’t have “pinchable” bulges, such as the thighs, we use a different applicator that straps a cooling plate comfortably against your skin. These treatments take about 2 hours each.

DualSculpting for Quicker Treatments

Some patients wish to treat multiple areas of the body at once, so we offer DualSculpting. During your session, 2 CoolSculpting machines operate simultaneously, cutting your treatment time in half. This means that you can get in and out quicker, so you can get back to your normal daily activities sooner. You’ll get the benefit of comprehensive body contouring in a more efficient appointment.

No matter which treatment head we use, intense cold is delivered to the lower layers of your skin. The device uses a process developed by Harvard researchers called cryolipolysis that targets and kills fat cells because they are more vulnerable to low temperatures than the skin and surrounding tissues. The body naturally flushes away these cells in the weeks following your CoolSculpting procedure.

Because CoolSculpting is noninvasive, the procedure itself involves little or no discomfort. Some patients report an initial suction sensation and tingling as the cooling process begins, but many browse their mobile devices or read during much of the procedure.

Your Downtime

There really is no downtime associated with CoolSculpting. Our patients return to work or other daily activities after their treatments. You may have some redness and mild soreness, but these signs resolve quickly.

While patient experiences vary, results typically begin to develop over time as the body flushes away the damaged fat cells. Final results take approximately 2 to 4 months to become visible. If you maintain healthy diet and exercise habits, you can enjoy your results indefinitely.
