CoolSculpting


Many of our clients go to great lengths to improve their physique and lose weight only to discover that they still have pockets of stubborn fat remaining in the areas that matter to them most. Their diet and workout regimens are not to blame, nor is their will or self-discipline. The problem is a biological one; some fat simply does not respond well to our best body contouring efforts.

This is what makes CoolSculpting such a revolutionary — and popular — body sculpting treatment. CoolSculpting eliminates this unwanted fat, helping patients complete the work they’ve begun and finally achieve their body-sculpting goals. The treatment is safe and effective, has no surgery or downtime and also is the only FDA-cleared, controlled-cooling procedure to target stubborn fat, adding to its high demand.

CoolSculpting results are proven, visible, and long-lasting, so you’ll look and feel great from every angle, and you can enhance the results of your CoolSculpting treatment when you have it performed by an experienced and qualified board-certified plastic surgeon, like Dr. Kenneth Odinet. Dr. Odinet combines a deep understanding of the procedure, its application and the results his patients expect to deliver a look that will provide long-lasting satisfaction.

Can CoolSculpting really freeze away fat?

The answer is yes. Harvard University scientists discovered an interesting biological fact; fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than other cells in the human body. When fat cells freeze, they die, and the human body does not regenerate them. CoolSculpting has put these facts to use to benefit those seeking an ideal body sculpting solution; by targeting fat cells and applying controlled-cooling — a process called cryolipolysis — the treatment can offer patients highly-tailored and permanent fat reduction and outstanding results. After your CoolSculpting treatment, your body will begin to eliminate dead fat cells and, in the coming weeks, you will notice a slimmer, more toned and trim new physique.

Why is CoolSculpting the best way to achieve your body contouring results? Typically, when you gain weight, your fat cells expand, and when you lose weight, they contract. This means that, for most weight loss achieved through diet and exercise, you will never rid your body of fat cells; you will just reduce their size. This is what makes CoolSculpting such an effective and sought-after treatment; CoolSculpting actually kills these fat cells and your body eliminates them permanently, giving you the most comprehensive body-contouring solution available.

Further, CoolSculpting is also a very comfortable treatment to have. The cooling device gently suctions the skin and delivers cooling between 23 to 41 degrees Fahrenheit, the temperature range which will destroy unwanted fat cells. Since non-fat cells freeze at temperatures outside of this range, they remain unharmed by the treatment. In addition, built-in safety monitoring ensures that the device and the treated areas remain in the desired temperature zone. Fat cells are killed immediately upon treatment, but it will take a few weeks for your body to eliminate these cells naturally. Your toned, trim new look will gradually become more visible with each passing week.

Which body areas can CoolSculpting treat?

CoolSculpting is an extremely versatile procedure that can treat many body areas where stubborn fat can prevent you from looking your best. Common places our patients have CoolSculpting include:

  • Abdomen
  • Bra rolls
  • Back
  • Buttocks
  • Flanks, also known as “love handles”
  • The back of the upper arms
  • Submental fat (fat beneath the chin)

Am I a good candidate for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a body-contouring treatment, not a weight-loss solution. The ideal candidate for CoolSculpting will have reached a healthy weight through diet and exercise and will have been able to sustain that weight. Once these criteria are met, the candidate can then begin considering body-contouring solutions, like CoolSculpting. Both men and women can benefit from a CoolSculpting treatment. A commitment to a healthy lifestyle is crucial to maintain your results. Patients will never gain back weight in areas treated by CoolSculpting, but they can gain back weight in other body areas.

Your CoolSculpting Consultation

Yes, you can fine-tune your physique with the help of board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kenneth Odinet. Your ideal physique begins with a thorough in-person consultation. During your consultation, Dr. Odinet will discuss your body goals and examine you. From this information, he will work with you to develop a customized CoolSculpting treatment plan that addresses all your problem areas. Your treatment plan will outline the number of sessions needed to achieve your goals, which will depend on your desired results and current condition of your treatment areas.

Your CoolSculpting Treatment

Most patients find their CoolSculpting treatment extremely comfortable, even relaxing. After the areas you want treated have been identified, the CoolSculpting device is gently positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied to the skin. You will feel a gentle suction on your skin and a cooling sensation that is usually well tolerated. During your treatment, you may choose to read a book, catch up on your email or even take a nap. A typical CoolSculpting session can take around 30 minutes to complete, making it a genuine “lunchtime” procedure.

Recovering From CoolSculpting

There is no recovery from a CoolSculpting treatment. Immediately after your procedure, you may return to your busy day without any restrictions on your activities. There is no surgery involved, so there is no downtime. You may notice a few symptoms in the treated area after having CoolSculpting, which are completely natural and will fade quickly. These symptoms can include some stiffness, swelling and redness and temporary numbness. If you have these symptoms, you can expect them to fade within a couple of days, and they will not limit you in any way.

Your CoolSculpting Results

You will like what you see after your CoolSculpting treatment. In the weeks and months following your procedure, your body will naturally process treated fat and eliminate these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they are gone permanently. This is a natural process known as apoptosis, and it is the final stage before enjoying your full results. The rate of this process will vary by individual; however, most patients notice significant improvements three to four weeks after treatment.

A single CoolSculpting treatment can reduce fat in treated areas by about 20 to 25 percent, which will translate into visible slimming and a reduced waistline (if the abdominal area is treated) for most people. You may not need additional treatments, but for those who do, you can have a follow-up CoolSculpting session three to four months after your initial office visit. Results are permanent, provided that you maintain a healthy lifestyle to prevent weight gain in other areas.

Patience is key, however; as with most any change taking place inside the body, the process of eliminating dead fat cells is a gradual one, but your results will come consistently over time. Soon, with your new body contours, you will look like you have been spending more time at the gym, without anyone thinking that you’ve had a body-sculpting procedure, instead.
