Non-surgical CoolSculpting

The New, Non-Invasive Way to Reduce Fat

Say goodbye to muffin tops and love handles. CoolSculpting® is the coolest, most innovative, nonsurgical way to lose those annoying bumps and bulges of stubborn fat.

Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting involves no needles, surgery or downtime. Patients often spend procedure time reading, working on their laptops or simply relaxing.

CoolSculpting is safe, FDA-cleared and effective. Results look natural and can be seen as early as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results generally apparent after one to three months.

Frequently Asked Questions


What will the results be?

Depending on the amount of excess tissue, one or more treatments may be necessary, although many patients are satisfied after one treatment. CoolSculpting does not remove as much fat as a liposuction procedure, however, so during your consultation with an Emory physician, we can discuss a treatment plan that will meet your specific treatment needs.

What happens during the treatment?

To initiate the treatment, we position the device on your body. The device then draws the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure—enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. An hour or so later, depending on your needs, you are done.

Can I return to normal activities after the procedure?

CoolSculpting is completely nonsurgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, numbness or discomfort in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. Often patients return to work after the session is over.

When will I see results?

You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment and will experience the most dramatic results after one to three months. At that point, your body is still flushing fat cells and will continue doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.


Are the results permanent?

During CoolSculpting, the treated fat cells are eliminated. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, results should remain stable over the long term.
