It’s the easiest way to reduce fat with no downtime

Got a little area of stubborn fat that won’t budge, despite a healthy diet and exercise? Now you can do something about it without surgery.

coolsculpting logoCoolSculpting® at La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa provides long-lasting reduction of unwanted fat bulges by freezing fat cells until they break down, so your body can eliminate unwanted fat from an area naturally. Your skin, muscle, and other tissues stay healthy and unharmed. No needles, no surgery, and no downtime.

CoolSculpting® is 100% non-surgical

In fact, it’s so easy that most patients read, browse Instagram, or take a nap while the CoolSculpting® machine does its work. After your treatment, you can return to your busy day with no downtime. You can see a reduction in as little as 3 weeks, as your body naturally gets rid of the fat cells. After 1 to 3 months, you should notice a real difference in how much slimmer you look and feel.

How does CoolSculpting® work?

CoolSculpting® uses a proprietary technology called cryolipolysis. This involves using controlled cooling to freeze fat cells to the point where they break down, without damage to other tissue. Though results vary individual to individual, cryolipolysis is one of the most studied non-surgical techniques used for body contouring. It has proven very effective at reducing unsightly fat bulges that may have resisted diet and exercise in the past.

You’ll come in for your appointment, change into a comfy robe, and settle into the soft chair. Then we will apply the CoolSculpting® pads to your problem area. For the next half hour, you might feel some pressure and intense cold while your fat cells get the blast. After that, you’re done! Just get back to your healthy lifestyle and soon you’ll notice results.

Introducing Zimmer ZWave!

How Does CoolSculpting® compare to liposuction?

While both are designed to reduce unwanted fat deposits, CoolSculpting® is best for those who are generally happy with their proportions but have modest yet pesky fat bulges on the hips or abdomen.

Liposuction surgery may be better for those with larger fat deposits who could benefit from more dramatic reshaping, which a board certified plastic surgeon can achieve with liposuction surgery. Liposuction is still typically the best option for reducing fat on the face, neck, arms or legs.

Any side effects I should know about?

CoolSculpting® is a safe medical procedure, though results and patient experience may vary. The most common side effects are temporary mild bruising, redness, tingling, and tenderness. More serious side effects are extremely rare.
