What are my options for non-surgical body sculpting?

Would you like to shrink belly fat without surgery? Non-surgical body sculpting may be the right option for you. Body sculpting is one of the most requested cosmetic procedures these days. Patients find non-invasive procedures more appealing because they are usually painless, and require minimal to no downtime. As a result, they generally want to know what options are available.


CoolSculpting is one of the most popular options for non-surgical body sculpting. It is a virtually pain-free procedure that gets rid of unwanted fat, and requires no anesthesia or incisions, so there are no scars.

The CoolSculpting system uses patented cooling technology known as cryolipolysis, to reduce unwanted fat. It is the ideal solution for removing fatty deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise.

CoolSculpting is FDA approved for stubborn fat bulges on the abdomen, flanks, upper arms, inner and outer thighs, submental area (below the chin), and underneath the buttocks (banana roll).

How CoolSculpting works

The CoolSculpting applicator pulls the treatment area between the cooling panels, and slowly cools the targeted zone. The system delivers cold temperature directly to the unwanted fat cells, causing them to crystallize and die. The treated cells are then naturally processed and flushed from the body in the following weeks.

Side effects of CoolSculpting are mild, and include temporary swelling, redness and bruising in the treatment area.

Results of CoolSculpting can be seen within 3 weeks of treatment, but the most dramatic results will appear after about 2 months. The fat cells treated with CoolSculpting are gone for good, so the results are long lasting.
