In Atlanta, active women and men visit Buckhead Facial Plastic Surgery for nonsurgical fat reduction with CoolSculpting. Exercising regularly and sticking to a healthy diet often do nothing about frustrating bulges. CoolSculpting is an innovative, FDA-cleared treatment that destroys targeted fat cells by freezing them without damaging the skin or tissues. No downtime is needed.

CoolSculpting is an ideal body contouring procedure for men and women who are generally fit but want to reduce excess fat without surgery. Areas commonly treated include:
During your consultation at our CoolSculpting-certified practice, we will determine if the treatment is right for your needs and body contouring goals and then create a customized treatment plan. It's important to understand that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure. If you want more dramatic results or want to target smaller areas such as the neck, we offer Lipotherme™ laser liposuction.
We perform CoolSculpting right in our office. After the area is prepared, the applicator is positioned on your skin and the fat is then squeezed between 2 cooling panels. Most patients say it feels like the skin is being tugged and that the initial sensation of extreme cold lasts fewer than 5 minutes. Many patients work on laptops, scroll through their mobile devices, or even take naps during the procedure.
It takes about an hour to treat a single area such as one love handle or outer thigh. More time is needed to address multiple treatment areas. For example, if you treat the flanks (love handles) and the upper and lower abdomen, each treatment area takes about an hour to complete.
After removing the applicator, a member of our med spa team then massages the area. Because CoolSculpting is noninvasive, most patients return to their daily routines almost immediately, but don't plan on strenuous exercise for at least a couple of days. Expect some bruising and swelling, but those side-effects are minor and resolve on their own.
The cost of CoolSculpting in Atlanta can vary from practice to practice. At Buckhead Facial Plastic Surgery, the price typically starts at $1,500 and is based on the areas treated and the number of sessions required to meet your goals.
Noticeable results typically take about 3 weeks to develop as the frozen fat cells die off and are absorbed into the body naturally. Some men and women meet their goals after a single treatment, but many schedule a second treatment session at least a month later.
