The CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise.
The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting—so you'll look great from every angle. Our bodies inevitably face changes due to age, pregnancy, weight gain, weight loss, health conditions, and other influences. With so many factors affecting how our bodies function, burn calories, and store fat, it’s no wonder that fat can accumulate in areas that are resistant to traditional methods of fat reduction such as diet and exercise. CoolSculpting at Tri Valley Plastic Surgery offers an effective, convenient, and permanent solution for stubborn fat.
CoolSculpting (also called cryolipolysis), eliminates fat from specific areas of the body through the freezing of fat cells. It is a popular alternative to liposuction and requires no downtime. Dr. Steven Williams is a board-certified Oakland plastic surgeon and an expert at body sculpting. The team of medical and aesthetic specialists at Tri Valley Plastic Surgery is a premier provider of CoolSculpting in Oakland and the surrounding areas.
If you are close to your ideal weight, but have a stubborn area you would like to get rid of in one of the following areas, you may be a candidate for CoolSculpting:
CoolSculpting works by freezing fat cells. As other parts of the body are not as sensitive to cold as fat, CoolSculpting can specifically target fat cells. CoolSculpting is minimally invasive, requires no downtime, and is a safe, effective, and convenient alternative to liposuction. At your Oakland CoolSculpting treatment, you can expect to feel some slight pinching, and a cooling sensation as the tissue in the treatment area is suctioned and cooled to temperatures that freeze fat cells.
Depending on the area being treated, the procedure takes 35 to 75 minutes. There is no recovery time, though some patients report mild soreness similar to that caused by a strained muscle following CoolSculpting. As it takes time for the eliminated fat to be processed by the body, you can expect to see your full CoolSculpting results in about four to six months after treatment. CoolSculpting is proven to remove 20% to 50% of fat in treated areas. Treatment of larger areas typically yields 20% to 30% fat loss, while treatment in smaller areas can cause 50% of fat to be eliminated. The body does not reproduce fat cells, which means the reduction in fat cells is permanent!

Patients may feel a tugging sensation during treatment as the applicator suctions the tissue in the treatment area. Some patients experience stinging, aching, or sensitivity following treatment. These conditions can appear soon after treatment, or anytime within two weeks. Any post-treatment pain typically lasts between three and 11 days. The treatment area may develop temporary swelling, redness, sensitivity, numbness, or bruising due to exposure to cold temperatures. These symptoms should subside within three weeks. On extremely rare occasions, paradoxical adipose hyperplasia may occur, causing fat cells in the treated area to grow larger. This condition occurs in men more often than women, though it is not understood what causes it. It can be treated with liposuction.
CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss treatment; however, by targeting fat in specific areas, it can result in a slimmer appearance. CoolSculpting is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle. While the number of fat cells within treated areas is reduced, remaining fat cells will continue to grow or shrink with weight change so it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise following CoolSculpting.
Patients can expect to require one to three CoolSculpting treatments to achieve the required results. These sessions should be at least one month apart.
