Body Contouring Without the Downtime of Surgery in the Gold Coast
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved, non-surgical and non-invasive fat reduction procedure that permanently eradicates unwanted fat cells. It has been clinically-proven to effectively shrink bulges and areas of excess fat with absolutely no downtime. It can trim inches off the tummy, love handles, hips, waist, legs, back, lower and upper arms, muffin top, banana roll and even the double chin.
One session is often enough to see some improvement in body contouring. For more significant fat loss, however, 2-3 treatments are recommended. It normally takes three weeks to start noticing fat reduction results and the final outcome can be observed 3-4 months post treatment.
CoolSculpting Performed While You Read or Take a Nap
An important part of the CoolSculpting process is a thorough consultation and assessment. Our experienced medical professional will help patients determine the treatment areas and discuss possible results. The treatment starts with a vacuum applicator being attached to the problem area while controlled cooling is deployed to the surface of the skin. It’s normal to experience an intense cold sensation as the fat cells are being frozen. This typically goes away after a few minutes and patients are able to relax and enjoy the treatment.
The applicator will remain attached for approximately one hour. During the procedure patients may read, listen to music, work on their laptop or even take a nap.
CoolSculpting fat freezing technology is based on the discovery of Harvard University researchers. They realised that freezing fat cells caused them to die, rupture and spill their contents into surrounding tissue. The lymphatic system then went to work to remove the dead fat cells from the body.
This process of exposing fat cells to very low temperatures is called cryolipolysis. CoolSculpting is a great treatment for reducing fat around the tummy, inner thighs, outer thighs, love handles (muffin top), back, lower and upper arms, chin/neck , knees, ankles and bra fat. In fact, most areas with stubborn, unwanted fat cells that don’t respond to diet and exercise can be effectively targeted with CoolSculpting.

CoolSculpting is a Walk-in, Walk Out Treatment
Most people are pleasantly surprised with how little discomfort and downtime there is following CoolSculpting. Patients can return to work and resume their normal activities right away. It’s possible to experience temporary side-effects after CoolSculpting treatment such as redness or numbness, as well as minor swelling and bruising in the treated area.
Another major advantage with non-surgical fat reduction is that results are permanent. Just like with liposuction, once the fat cells have been removed they will never return. To ensure long-term success, however, patients are encouraged to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Keep in mind that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss tool but rather a body sculpting procedure.
Results are typically noticeable as early as three weeks after the CoolSculpting procedure. Maximum fat reduction, however, can be observed after 12-16 weeks. The body will continue to remove injured fat cells for approximately four months after the last session. Typically, the procedure can reduce the fat layer by 20-40%.

What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat removal procedure which produces permanent results. It is the only non-invasive method of fat removal which is backed by scientific research. CoolSculpting can be applied to many areas of the body including tummy, love handles, inner and outer thighs, arms, and back.
The CoolSculpting applicator uses a vacuum to suction the targeted area into the handpiece which then cools this area to temperatures which are low enough to kill fat cells. After the required time, about 30 minutes to an hour, the vacuum releases the area, and the destroyed fat cells will be eliminated by your body in the natural way.
How long do the results last?
The elimination of fat cells through using CoolSculpting is permanent. Fat cells can never return once they are destroyed and removed from your body.
Does CoolSculpting really work?
Yes. CoolSculpting has been researched and developed at Harvard University, and has been proven many times over in clinical trials. Unlike other non-invasive treatments which may only temporarily shrink the fat cells, CoolSculpting permanently eliminates fat cells.
Why get Liposuction when I can get CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is suitable for pockets of fat, in specific areas. For a larger volume of fat removal or to sculpt and define areas of the body, liposuction is still the preferred option.
Is There Pain Associated with CoolSculpting?
Most patients experience mild to no discomfort while using the CoolSculpting machine. No anesthesia is needed, and most patients sit back and read, work on their laptops or listen to music while the procedure is taking place. Once the CoolSculpting applicator is removed you can be on your way, back to work and normal activities immediately.
Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting?
If you have unwanted fat bulges then CoolSculpting is a great alternative to surgical liposuction. It’s a minimally-invasive way to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat that persist even with a healthy diet and regular exercise. Keep in min that CoolSculpting is not an effective treatment for cellulite.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
Most patients achieve excellent results with one session; however, multiple treatments in the same area may be recommended for optimum fat reduction. If you choose to have additional sessions, they can be performed one week after your initial CoolSculpting procedure. Multiple areas can be treated on the same day.
Will I Experience Any Complications?
It’s normal to experience some temporary side-effects such as redness, numbness or tingling in the treated area. Some minor swelling and bruising post-treatment can also occur. Overall, CoolSculpting is a very safe and effective procedure.
Which Areas Can be Treated with Fat Freezing?
Fat freezing can remove fat from many areas of the body. This includes the abdomen (tummy), back, arms, waist, knees, love handles, chin (submental area) and neck, as well as the inner and outer thighs.
