CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting logo

We all wish we could non-invasively spot treat our bodies, eliminating fat from certain areas only, like the love handles, stomach pooch, upper arms, and thighs. Fat deposits here can be especially bothersome and may not respond well to exercise. While liposuction can achieve this, it’s a surgical procedure and many patients are interested in non-invasive treatments instead.

With Coolsculpting in Milwaukee and Madison, Dr. Parkins can eliminate fat from specific problems areas on the body – all without the need for incisions and downtime to recover.

To learn more about Coolsculpting, we invite you to call Parkins Plastic Surgery for a consultation!

How Does Coolsculpting Work?

This treatment uses technology that was developed to harness the effects of cryolipolysis, which destroys fat cells by freezing them. Paddle-type applicators are applied to the skin and gentle suctioning is used to pull the tissue toward them, so the maximum fat freezing effect can be achieved. Harvard researchers created Coolsculpting technology after noticing the development of dimples in children who frequently ate popsicles.

The temperature is calibrated to target only fat cells below the tissue and not adversely impact the skin itself. After freezing the fat, the cells become unstable and die off. They are eventually drained out of the body through the lymphatic system. The result is slimmer body contours and a boost in self-confidence. Best of all, your body naturally eliminates the treated fat, so there is no downtime to recover from surgical fat removal.

Is Non-Surgical Fat Freezing Right for You?

As there is no need for invasive surgery and general anesthesia, Coolsculpting can be an effective treatment for many patients. Dr. Parkins frequently recommends this procedure for patients who share the following characteristics:

  • Unable to spot-eliminate fat with exercise
  • Have persistent fat deposits created by aging, pregnancy, or weight loss and gain
  • Want sleeker body contours in certain areas
  • Want to avoid the downtime associated with surgery
  • Aren’t ready for or interested in liposuction

Patients do not have to be at a specific weight or BMI to benefit from Coolsculpting, through Dr. Parkins does recommend patients be at or near their goal weight to see their desired results. Treatment eliminates about 20-25% of fat in targeted areas and should not be considered a weight loss solution. If you are in good general health and want to enjoy a better contoured physique, Dr. Parkins can help.

Amazing. I never doubted that I had an experienced doctor. I loved everyone. Recovery was exactly like she said. I have never regretted the decision for one minute. I went from a fake 36C to a “real” 36DD. Over muscle. Everyone says they don’t even look fake. They feel awesome. I would do anything with Dr. Parkins.

Dr. Parkins and her staff are amazing. From the begin of my journey to the end all of my questions were answered. The surgery and procedure went great with no complications. I followed the Doctor’s orders, the pain was minimum and the results are far more then my expectations. Never in my wildest dreams would I ever be wearing a bikini again and I did this past summer.

The Coolsculpting Procedure and Recovery

Patients love Coolsculpting because the procedure is quick, and they do not need to take time off work or their daily routine to recover from treatment. During the procedure, the applicators are positioned in the areas discussed during your consultation, and patients sit comfortably for about 35 minutes while the machine does its job. You will feel an intense cooling sensation, which may be odd at first, but eventually creates a numbing effect so you can read or watch your favorite shows in comfort.

After the applicators have been removed, lymphatic massage is provided to create best results. This is the only part of the process that may create feelings of discomfort. Dr. Parkins helps patients understand exactly what to expect so they are confident during their appointment. Patients can return home or to work immediately after treatment. Feelings of numbness and tingling may persist for the first few weeks

Over the next few weeks, results develop and mature as the body processes the damaged fat cells and naturally removes them from the treatment areas.

CoolSculpting FAQs

We all wish we could non-invasively spot treat our bodies, eliminating fat from certain areas only, like the love handles, stomach pooch, upper arms, and thighs. Fat deposits in these areas can be especially bothersome and may not respond well to exercise. While liposuction can effectively treat problem areas, it’s a surgical procedure, and many patients are interested in non-invasive treatments instead.

With Coolsculpting in Milwaukee and Madison, our team can eliminate fat from your trouble spots – all without the need for incisions or downtime for recovery.

This treatment uses technology that was developed to harness the effects of cryolipolysis, which destroys fat cells by freezing them. Paddle-type applicators are applied to the skin, and gentle suctioning is used to pull the tissue inward, so the maximum fat freezing effect can be achieved. Harvard researchers created Coolsculpting technology after noticing the development of dimples in children who frequently ate popsicles.

The temperature of the device is calibrated to target only fat cells and not adversely impact the skin itself, as fat cells are more sensitive to cold temperatures. After freezing the fat, the cells die. They are eventually processed and drained out of the body through the lymphatic system. This results in slimmer body contours and a boost in self-confidence. Because your body naturally eliminates the treated fat,  there is no downtime for recovery.

As there is no need for invasive surgery and general anesthesia, Coolsculpting can be an effective treatment for many patients. Dr. Parkins and our team frequently recommend this procedure for patients who share the following characteristics:

  • Have problem spots that haven’t responded to exercise

Over the next few weeks, results develop and improve as the body processes the damaged fat cells and naturally and permanently removes them.

CoolSculpting provides stunning results for a wide variety of patients, and the procedure’s effectiveness varies from patient to patient. Individuals within 30 pounds of their goal weight struggling with trouble spots of excess fat tend to see the best results. 

Across the board, CoolSculpting consistently delivers around 20 percent permanent fat reduction per treatment within a target area. To see more considerable results, more than one session may be necessary.

They are actually very different procedures, though both eliminate and reduce unwanted fat. CoolSculpting, however, is entirely non-invasive and utilizes a cooling form of liposuction to freeze away fat below the skin. Once the cells are dead, the body naturally excretes the fat tissue over the following four to 12 weeks. 

As for laser liposuction, you can think of it as almost the opposite of CoolSculpting. It’s a minimally invasive surgical treatment that uses laser energy to superheat targeted fat cells and then removes them immediately using a suction device. 

The fat that CoolSculpting eliminates is gone forever. Should you gain weight after the procedure, you won’t grow new fat cells in the treated area, but the fat cells that remain may expand. To maintain best results, you’ll need to keep up with your regular exercise and a healthy diet.

CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss tool, and it is not intended for patients who are looking to lose weight. Instead, this procedure is ideal for people who want to see better contours in stubborn parts of the body that don’t respond to exercise and a healthy diet. CoolSculpting is also only capable of removing fat under the skin. Losing weight, however, reduces visceral fat (which the CoolSculpting process cannot address). 

Absolutely! Our team of specialists use CoolSculpting to help our male clients create a sculpted and toned abdominal V and torso muscles, as well as to build and compliment broad shoulders, shape the waist, chest, abs, and the pecs.

The number of treatments necessary depends on the size and number of trouble spots you want to treat. Smaller areas like the neck and chin often respond beautifully to just one or two treatments, thanks to their small surface areas. Larger areas like the abdomen, however, can require several placements of the device–though one or two treatments still does wonders here. Our patient’s looking for more dramatic results tend to need between three and nine total sessions.

We advise our clients wait for a minimum of 60 days between treatments for maximum results.

The best way to prepare is to come in for a consultation so we can discuss all the details of your treatment. Once we have a treatment plan set up, all you’ll need to bring is yourself, some comfy clothes, and a book/laptop/headphones to entertain you during the treatment.

Yes, CoolSculpting is FDA-approved and safe. The most common risk associated with the procedure is a “hot spot” where cooling may slightly burn the skin. In the rare event this happens, we stop treatment to allow the area to heal and begin the process again afterwards. There’s also a very small chance of lasting numbness, which usually resolves within a month. You may also be a bit sore on the following day, as though you had done an intense workout.
