No matter how rigorously you diet and exercise, sometimes there are areas of your body that don’t respond, leaving you with unflattering, stubborn pockets of fat.

If you live in West Palm Beach, Jupiter, Palm Springs, Wellington, Lake Worth or any surrounding areas of South Florida, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with one of our skilled board certified plastic surgeons!
Created by Harvard scientists, CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive procedure that employs cooling technology that noticeably reduces stubborn fat without surgery. This FDA-approved, exclusive procedure uses a focused cooling process that kills the fat cells underneath the skin, freezing and killing them. Only fat cells are targeted, so your healthy skin cells remain undamaged. Results are achieved through a series of sessions. During a CoolSculpting® session, a gentle, vacuum-like applicator is applied to the treatment area. Fat cells are frozen, die, and are eliminated naturally from the body. Patients feel minimal or no discomfort during this treatment, and there is no downtime involved.
How Much Does CoolSculpting® Cost?
CoolSculpting® cost will vary depending on the size of the treatment area and the number of areas you wish to have treated. In general, the pricing ranges from $2,000-$4,000 for a personalized treatment plan. Pricing information can be discussed during your initial consultation.
Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting®?
Good candidates for CoolSculpting® are 19 years of age or older, and have unwanted fat pockets that cannot be addressed by exercise and healthy eating alone. CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss solution for obese patients, nor is it a substitute for surgical methods, such as liposuction.
Before & After
What Results Can I Expect from CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® treatments can reduce 20-25 percent of fat in treated areas, and patients may begin to see changes in their body as quickly as three weeks after treatment. Full results are commonly seen after two months. However, the body will continue to flush out fat cells for four to six months after treatment. In order to maintain your results, it is advised to continue a healthy and active lifestyle.
How Long is Recovery After CoolSculpting®?
Treatments are completely non-surgical, so you can typically return to normal activities directly after. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, temporary numbness or discomfort in the treated area, but this should resolve quickly on its own.
