How Does CoolSculpting Work?

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting is a fat freezing procedure that produces effects similar to those of plastic surgery—but without needing to go under the knife. It might sound too good to be true, but it really works! Here’s how.

Eliminating Fat

It’s important to remember that fat reduction is not the same as weight loss. While it might appear to have similar effects, they are very different. When you loose weight, your fat cells simply shrink in size, but there are the same amount of them. With fat reduction, however, the actual amount of fat cells is reduced. You literally have fewer cells.

This makes CoolSculpting less about the number on the scale, and more about how you look and feel in your body. It doesn’t matter if you weigh less, because you will actually be thinner. And that fat is gone for good, because cells that no longer exist can’t get bigger!

It’s Freezing!

But how does the technology work? Basically, the CoolSculpting process involves gradually and gently cooling fat cells that exist under the skin. As they freeze, these cells crystallize and then die. As your body processes fat, it then eliminates these dead cells, leaving your body the way you want. Because of this, it is a great way to get rid of stubborn fat after trying through diet and exercise.

Anyone Can Do It

The process is very easy and quick. A device is placed on the area to be treated, and as it’s cooling the cells, you can do whatever you want: read, sleep, work from your computer, play CandyCrush on your phone! It’s fast, and simple, and you can return to your daily activities immediately.

CoolSculpting is the only fat-blasting technique that doesn’t require you to go under the knife. This makes it much safer than any other procedure, and it requires literally no down time. As mentioned above, you can even work during the freezing process!

Best of all, results are noticeable. You might feel some pain during the process, and the results can take from 3 weeks to 2 months to really appear, but they will come, and they will make you feel so good.

Patient Testimonials

I had a tummy tuck back in March, I am now 3 months post op and my results have exceeded my expectations. Dr. Yates is very professional, honest and friendly! His staff is awesome and made me feel very comfortable. I will be returning to him for other surgeries in the future. I have also been and will be referring friends and family to him too!


“I can’t say enough about Dr. Yates and his staff. Everyone was so professional yet made me feel completely at ease. Dr. Yates is meticulous about his work and this showed at each and every appointment.

I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Yates to anyone interested in plastic surgery. Should I ever consider any other type of plastic surgery, I would not go to anyone else.

I am extremely pleased with my results.”
