Where CoolSculpting® Treats
CoolSculpting® vs. Liposuction
While CoolSculpting and liposuction both remove fat from the body, there are some key differences in how the procedures are performed that may influence your ultimate decision.
- Uses a targeted cooling process to treat fat cells*
- Only fat cells are frozen; does not damage healthy cells
- Fat cells are naturally treated through the body’s metabolic processes
- No anesthesia is required, simplifying your recovery
- The entire procedure can take as little as 35 minutes
- Patients can return to their daily activities immediately
- Results become visible in the first couple weeks of recovery
- Extremely safe procedure – the device shuts down automatically if it senses any complication
- Requires incisions that can result in scarring
- Uses a suctioning device to remove fat
- Damages surrounding tissue as fat is loosened, causing swelling
- Swelling and bruising may take up to several months to resolve
- The procedure typically takes about 2 hours
- May take several months to see results as your swelling subsides
Dr. Wise is very knowledgeable about both non-surgical and surgical fat removal procedures. He will help you evaluate if CoolSculpting is the right procedure to get rid of your stubborn fat.
Does CoolSculpting hurt?
Because CoolSculpting is non-invasive, you will likely feel little to no pain during and after the procedure! During the procedure, you may feel a cool sensation near the treatment area, but you will accustom to the feeling and it will go away in a few minutes. The specially-designed device is comfortable on the skin and many patients read a book or play their favorite smartphone games while the fat-freezing happens. You are welcome to bring something to keep yourself occupied, or simply take a nap!
Recovering from a CoolSculpting Procedure
Perhaps the greatest thing about the CoolSculpting procedure is the virtually non-existent recovery time. You likely won’t need to take any time off work, exercise, or other activities, which means you are free to resume your favorite activities right away. Side effects are extremely mild and you will usually not need any medication for pain or discomfort. Any side effects you experience will naturally fade with time.
The frozen fat cells are slowly flushed out of your body through your liver and expelled naturally. Your trim and slender figure will soon be revealed as your body sheds fat cells in the treatment area, and those results will stick around for many years.

Am I a good Candidate for CoolSculpting?
The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. Age, genetics, or other factors can contribute to your body’s propensity to hold on to fat in certain areas, leading to difficult pockets of extra “flab.” Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. The CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. The procedure can be performed on men or women of virtually any age. Patients typically also have good skin elasticity so their skin remains tight after the reduction of fat. Finally, you should be at a steady and manageable weight, and women should not be expecting any more children. It is suggested that you be near your goal weight and not expecting any drastic changes to increase the permanence of your results. Request a one-on-one consultation with Dr Wise who will determine if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.
