COOLSCULPTING

CoolSculpting® Procedure

Your fat cells hate the cold: It’s science.

The procedure was developed by renowned scientists of Harvard University and Massachusetts General Hospital.

CoolSculpting® gets rid of fat safely without the need for surgery or downtime. An FDA-cleared procedure, this treatment targets and eliminates fat that diet and exercise just can’t get rid of. CoolSculpting® is extremely effective and long lasting, so you'll be sure to look and feel your best.

How does it work?

The science behind CoolSculpting® is quite simple. We will freeze your fat cells (which freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissue) and once the fat cells are frozen (crystallized), they will die. Your body will then naturally process the dead fat and get rid of the cells, giving you your desired look.


What areas can be treated with CoolSculpting®?
  • Stomach/Abdomen
  • Love Handles/Flanks
  • Back/Bra Fat
  • Banana Roll (Under Buttocks)
  • Under the Neck (Double Chin)
  • Inner and Outer Thighs
  • Arms

You can reshape your body!

Dr. DuPrey, Dr. Murphy, and the staff at Islip OB-GYN will create a CoolSculpting® treatment plan that targets your problem areas. Our initial sessions will reshape the areas in question, but if you desire, additional sessions can enhance your look.

The process is easy, and we want you to be as relaxed as possible the entire time you are with us. During the procedure, many of our patients choose to read, check email, or even take a nap. It’s that easy!

We have a spacious CoolSculpting® room at our office that features a television, Wi-fi access and light beverages and snacks. You will be fully relaxed and catered to by our friendly staff.

The CoolSculpting® fat freezing procedure is completely non-surgical, so you can typically return to work and normal activities immediately.

Once the procedure is complete, your body will begin to naturally process fat and eliminate the dead cells over the course of a few weeks or months. Once the dead fat cells are gone, they're gone for good.

FAQ’s


1Q: Am I A Candidate
A: Our procedure is designed for those that want to eliminate fat bulges in a specific area. CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss solution, it is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. If you are healthy but have noticeable fat bulges in certain areas, you are a candidate.
2Q: Where Does the Fat Go
A: The fat cells are frozen during the CoolSculpting® process and die. The dead fat cells will process naturally and leave your body. Once the sells are dead, they won’t be coming back.
3Q: When Will I See Results
A: Results can be seen in as little as 3 weeks after treatment. Results are typically visible after 2 months and your body will continue to flush out fat cells months after.
4Q: Will I Need Supplements
A: No supplements are required after your CoolSculpting® treatment. Although you are not required to change your health habits, many patients feel motivated to take better care of themselves. When you look better, you feel better, and you hopefully want to keep that feeling for a long time.
5Q: How much does the CoolSculpting® procedure cost?
A: The price will vary depending on the areas we will treat, the number of sessions needed and your ultimate goals. We will be happy to create a customized treatment plan that is tailored to your body.
6Q: How long is each session? How many sessions will I need?
A: The length of your session will be based on the number of areas treated during one visit. In some cases, we can schedule additional sessions to meet your goals.
7Q: What does it feel like?
A: During the procedure you will feel pressure and intense cold, but this feeling goes away after a few minutes. There are generally no other intense sensations and many patients read, watch videos, work on their laptop or even take a nap during the procedure.
8Q: Is the CoolSculpting® procedure safe?
A: This procedure is FDA-cleared for the flank (love handles), abdomen and thigh. There have been over one million CoolSculpting® treatments performed worldwide and it has been shown to be a safe and effective treatment for fat reduction without surgery.
9Q: Are there any side effects?
A: Following this work, some patients feel temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and pain. Rare side effects may also occur. The CoolSculpting® procedure is not for everyone and you should not have this work done if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria.
10Q: Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?
A: Yes, you can typically return to normal activities immediately. Many times, patients return to work right after their CoolSculpting® session is over.
