The truth is, we all have stubborn, unwanted fat. That is why Dr. Daniel Leeman and the team at Mueller Surgery Center are thrilled to offer CoolSculpting, a revolutionary, non-surgical body contouring treatment that freezes fat, which is naturally eliminated from your body. Because we have not just one, but two CoolSculpting devices, we offer Dual-Sculpting!
Before now, if you were looking to target unwanted fat on the love handles, you would have to receive treatment one side at a time. Now we can treat both sides at once to decrease your total treatment time. By performing Dual-Sculpting treatments, we can provide shorter treatment times for each patient and a more flexible treatment schedule.
CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling to target and crystallize fat cells. A vast body of research demonstrated that fat cells are more susceptible to cold and are selectively, permanently destroyed. Starting several weeks after after the procedure, cooled fat cells begin a process called “apoptosis” and begin to shrink and disappear. In the weeks and months following treatment, remaining fat cells condense, reducing the fat layer.
How long is the treatment?
A typical treatment can last from one to three hours. Dr. Leeman and the team at Mueller Surgery Center offer customized treatment plans based on your desired outcome. By performing Dual-Sculpting treatments, we can provide shorter treatment times for each patient and a more flexible treatment schedule.
How many treatments will I need?
Many patients see a noticeable reduction of fat in the treated area after one visit, but you may decide that you want additional treatments.
Is anesthesia required?
No. The CoolSculpting procedure uses vacuum pressure to draw tissue into an applicator cup between cooling panels. The suction pressure may cause sensations of deep pulling and tugging. These sensations generally subside as the area becomes numb.
Are there any side effects?
Side effects include redness, bruising, swelling, tenderness to the touch, cramping, itching, tingling and numbness. Numbness can persist up to several weeks after a procedure. During your consultation, we will discuss in greater detail what to expect during and after treatment.
Does this procedure have FDA Clearance?
CoolSculpting is FDA-Cleared to safely and effectively reduce unwanted fat cells.
Is Dr. Leeman a Board-Certified plastic surgeon?
Yes, Dr. Leeman is actually Double-Board-Certified by both the American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology/Head & Neck Surgery. He is also a fellow of the American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery.
