CoolSculpting® No Surgery, No Downtime
No matter what you do, stubborn fat still haunts your waistline. You've tried dieting, you've tried exercise, but nothing seems to help. Liposuction is one option, but some women and men don't want to undergo surgery.
Calobrace & Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery Center is a certified CoolSculpting center in Louisville, KY. CoolSculpting utilizes cold temperatures to target and freeze fat cells in the treatment area of waist line and “love handles”. These damaged cells are then naturally eliminated out of the body, leaving a more contoured look. CoolSculpting or “Fat Freezing” in Louisville is a revolutionary non-invasive procedure for men and women, developed by Harvard scientists, which freezes fat cells while leaving the overlying skin undamaged. The procedure is FDA-cleared and clinically proven to reduce fat cells in the area treated with just one visit. If you have stubborn, exercise resistant fat deposits and have been looking for a surgery free solution with no downtime then CoolSculpting may be the perfect procedure for you. Your love handles aren’t forgiving. Why should you be? If you’re tired of stubborn fat in your midsection and liposuction is not for you, CoolSculpting may be the right option. CoolSculpting has helped many Louisville men and women freeze away their fat with no incisions, no downtime and no surgery.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
When you come in for your CoolSculpting treatment, we will place a protective gel over the treatment area. Once you are comfortable, the CoolSculpting device will use a combination of gentle vacuum pressure and deep cooling to treat the fat below the skin and freeze unwanted fat cells.
Patients can usually sit comfortably while the device works, often reading a book, watching a movie or surfing the Web. As a result of the cooling, you may feel some numbness during treatment, and the treatment area may be red afterward, but this usually fades within a few hours. Most treatments take about one hour per treatment area. CoolSculpting can treat the waist, hips, thighs, buttocks, abdomen, arms, back, flanks, "love handles," and a "muffin top."

What Results Can I Expect?
CoolSculpting is ideal for smaller pockets of fat that are diet- and exercise-resistant. It can effectively remove 20 to 30% of the fat in the treatment area. However, CoolSculpting typically cannot treat larger areas as effectively as traditional Los Angeles tumescent liposuction can.
Results appear gradually during the weeks following the procedure as your body uses its own natural waste-removal system to eliminate the damaged fat cells. Most patients benefit from multiple treatments spaced over a few months. Your surgeon will discuss with you the right number of treatments to meet your goals.
Who is a Candidate for CoolSculpting?
Ideal candidates for CoolSculpting should be within 15 to 20 pounds of their ideal weight and should be otherwise healthy. The best candidates have small pockets of diet- and exercise-resistant fat that they want to remove. If your goal is to lose a great deal of weight, CoolSculpting may not be an option for you.
