CoolSculpting For Your Stomach: A Non-Surgical Way To Reduce Belly Fat

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive way to reduce stubborn fat in targeted areas of your body. Instead of surgery or needles, CoolSculpting uses a patented cooling technology called cryolipolysis to eliminate your fat cells in a natural, safe way.

CoolSculpting isn't a weight loss treatment - it's specifically designed to target those hard-to-budge bulges of fat.

So if you've been working out and eating healthy but still have stubborn pockets of fat that won't go away, CoolSculpting may help you achieve a more contoured body shape without surgery or needles.

Speaking of which, CoolSculpting doesn't have the same risks as invasive procedures like liposuction. The main side effects are minimal and temporary - things like mild bruising, numbness, tingling, and swelling for a few days after.

So if you're ready to say goodbye to those love handles, belly fat, or muffin top for good, talk to your doctor about whether CoolSculpting is right for you. Cryolipolysis may be a kind of "fat freeze" that helps you achieve the body you've always dreamed of, the natural way.

How CoolSculpting Works

CoolSculpting uses a technology called cryolipolysis to target and eliminate fat cells in specific areas of your body. Here's how the procedure works:

  • Your provider will determine which areas you want to treat and develop a customized treatment plan for you. Common areas include the abdomen, flanks, thighs, back, upper arms, and even under the chin.
  • The technician will apply gel pads and an applicator or cooling device to the targeted area. The applicator gently pulls the skin into the device, while the cooling plates inside freeze the fat cells beneath.
  • After about 35-60 minutes of controlled cooling, the applicator is removed. During this time, the fatty tissue in the targeted area drops to a temperature that destroys approximately 20-25% of the fat cells in that area.
  • The dead fat cells are then naturally flushed out of your body over the next 2-4 months through your lymphatic system. This is when you'll start to see the slimming and contouring effects.
  • Many patients require multiple CoolSculpting sessions to achieve their desired results, with treatments spaced 4-8 weeks apart. Your provider will recommend the number and frequency of treatments specific to your body composition and goals.

Benefits of CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting offers several benefits over other fat reduction methods:

  • It is nonsurgical - There are no incisions, needles, or anesthesia required. The procedure is done in-office and you can return to normal activity immediately.
  • Results are long-lasting - Once the fat cells are eliminated, they do not grow back (unlike with diet and exercise). Results from CoolSculpting can be permanent when maintained with a healthy lifestyle.
  • It targets specific areas - The cooling applicators are designed to treat specific parts of the body, allowing for precise fat reduction in stubborn areas.
  • Minimal side effects - The most common side effects are temporary numbness, tingling, swelling, and bruising. Serious complications are rare.
  • More affordable - The cost of CoolSculpting is typically lower than surgical procedures like liposuction.
  • No downtime - There is no need for anesthesia, stitches, or extensive recovery after CoolSculpting treatments.
  • Effects build over time - Though you may see some initial changes, the full contouring effects occur as dead fat cells are gradually eliminated over 2-4 months.
  • Widely used procedure - CoolSculpting has been used on over 3 million people worldwide, making it a trusted fat removal method.

CoolSculpting Cost and Insurance Coverage

The cost of CoolSculpting varies depending on several factors:

  • Treatment areas - Cost depends on which part of the body is treated. Larger areas typically cost more.
  • Number of applicators - More applicators to treat a larger area cost more.
  • Provider experience - Experienced providers may charge higher fees.
  • Location - Cost varies across states and regions due to market differences.

The average total cost for a full CoolSculpting treatment series ranges from $2,000 to $4,000. Here are some example costs:

Treatment AreaPrice Range (per treatment)
Abdomen$658 to $1,200
Flanks (love handles)$1,300 to $2,300
Arms$500 to $900
Double chin$500 to $900

Most patients require 2-4 treatment sessions spaced 4-8 weeks apart to achieve their desired results. This means the total cost could be $1,300 to $4,800 for a full treatment series, depending on the areas treated.

Some factors that do not significantly impact cost include body weight, age, and gender.

Insurance coverage

Since CoolSculpting is considered a cosmetic procedure rather than medically necessary, insurance plans rarely cover any portion of the cost. Most patients pay for CoolSculpting treatments completely out of pocket. Some providers offer payment plans for multiple sessions.

Preparation and What to Expect

Preparing for your CoolSculpting Procedure

  • Avoid anti-inflammatory medications for one week before treatment if possible. These include ibuprofen, aspirin, and naproxen.
  • Do not work out or apply lotion on the treatment area for at least 4 hours before your appointment.
  • Wear loose, comfortable clothing that is easy to remove.
  • Inform your provider of any medical conditions, medications, or allergies.
  • Ask any questions you have to clarify the procedure and your expected results.

What to expect during CoolSculpting

  • Your provider will examine the treatment area and develop a customized plan.
  • You will be asked to lie down while the applicator is placed over the targeted fatty area.
  • A gel pad and covering will be applied to the skin. The applicator will gently pull the skin into place.
  • The cooling process begins and takes 35-60 minutes. You can sleep, read or listen to music during this time.
  • You may feel pulling or stiffness in the skin, along with mild discomfort or numbness.

After CoolSculpting

  • The applicator is removed and you can get up right away. Most feel fine to return to normal activities.
  • The treated area may be red, swollen, or numb immediately after. This gradually subsides over 1-3 days.
  • You may feel slight tenderness, like a workout. Taking an over-the-counter pain reliever can help.
  • A compression garment or wrap may be recommended to minimize swelling and bruising.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise or anti-inflammatories for 48 hours.
  • You will likely start seeing changes within 2-4 weeks, but full results take 2-4 months as dead fat cells are naturally eliminated.

With proper preparation and realistic expectations, most patients find the CoolSculpting procedure to be relatively easy and well-tolerated. Following your provider's aftercare instructions will help optimize your results and recovery.

CoolSculpting Candidate Profile

CoolSculpting is generally suitable for individuals who meet the following criteria:

Have pinchable fat bulges that do not respond to diet and exercise alone
Are near or at a healthy weight for their height
Have good skin elasticity and tissue tone
Are in good physical and mental health with no major medical conditions
Do not have cold sensitivity or blood circulation issues
Have a realistic expectation of the procedure's capabilities and limitations
Are willing to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine after the procedure
Are evaluated and approved by a qualified CoolSculpting provider

CoolSculpting is NOT recommended for:

xThose with sagging or loose skin - CoolSculpting targets fat cells, not skin.
xThose seeking significant weight loss - It destroys a portion of fat cells in treated areas.
xThose with certain medical conditions - including cold urticaria, cryoglobulinemia, and paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria.
xPregnant or nursing women - Safety for these groups has not been established.
xThose allergic to cold temperatures - Some people are sensitive to the freezing process.

The ideal CoolSculpting candidate is someone who has made healthy lifestyle changes but still has stubborn pockets of excess fat that do not respond to diet and exercise alone.

A consultation with an experienced provider can determine if CoolSculpting is right for your specific health history, body composition, and desired results.

As a generally safe and effective treatment for body contouring, CoolSculpting works best when combined with a balanced diet and regular exercise to maintain results over time.

Results and Durability

When performed properly by an experienced provider, CoolSculpting produces noticeable results for many patients. Here's what to expect:

Immediate Results

  • Immediately after treatment, the treated area may look and feel swollen. Bruising, tenderness, and numbness can also occur.
  • These side effects typically subside within 1-3 days after treatment.

Short-Term Results

  • Within 2-4 weeks, some fat reduction and subtle contour changes may begin to appear.
  • Results continue to build as dead fat cells are gradually eliminated over 1-2 months.
  • Full contouring benefits become apparent at around 3 months after a single treatment session.

Long-Term Results

  • Optimal fat reduction and body contouring are typically seen within 4-6 months after treatment.
  • These longer-term results rely somewhat on diet and exercise efforts to sustain benefits.
  • With proper follow-up CoolSculpting sessions spaced 4-8 weeks apart, further fat reduction and contouring can be achieved.
  • While results are largely permanent once fat cells are destroyed, maintaining a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise helps ensure the most durable outcomes.

How Long Do CoolSculpting Results Last?

Results from a single CoolSculpting session typically peak at around 6 months and may last for 2 years or longer with proper maintenance.

By following a nutritious diet and regular exercise plan following your CoolSculpting treatments, you can maximize the longevity of results.

CoolSculpting destroys existing fat cells, but cannot prevent new fat cells from forming. Additional CoolSculpting sessions spaced 4-8 weeks apart can help maintain or further enhance benefits over time.

Patients can see subtle improvements within weeks of CoolSculpting, but full contouring benefits generally require 3-6 months as dead fat cells are gradually eliminated.

With proper follow-up and a healthy lifestyle, results can last for several years. Additional treatments spaced 4-8 weeks apart can help maintain or further enhance benefits over time.

What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "The treatment itself was not uncomfortable. Afterwords, I felt great. I didn't really notice anything for about 30 days. After day 30 until about a month later, I started noticing that my favorite jeans were not as tight anymore. I wasn't having to suck in to get them buttoned. And by that two month period after my CoolSculpting

  • "It's subtle at first, and then a month later you look and go, "Wow - It really did something!" It really moved the bar for me, and I'm feeling better about myself already. It feels so good to put on anything and know I look as good as I've ever looked. And I didn't say that or feel that when I was in my 20's, 30's, and 40's."
