About CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared treatment that implements cryolipolysis, the science of fat freezing. CoolSculpting is meant to help men and women who have stubborn pockets of fat. The CoolSculpting system is an ideal technique for eliminating fat on the flanks and love handles. Flabby flanks, love handles or muffin tops can be a source of self-consciousness and detract from the contours of your body. CoolSculpting can help target this stubborn fat and enhance your curves.

Cryolipolysis was first hypothesized when scientists took note that children who ate a lot of popsicles tended to develop dimples.

After further testing and research, they developed what is known today as CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting can be applied all over the body, including areas such as the thighs, chest, abdomen, back, and even small areas like beneath the chin. CoolSculpting applicators have been designed for each of these areas. Scientists have tested them and made sure they adjust to the different contours of the body. The CoolCurve+ is the perfect applicator for the love handles. This applicator is curved up so it can fit narrow areas of the body. The applicator is attached to the body with suction.

The suction not only serves the function of keeping the applicator in place but also works to draw the fat up to the surface of the skin. This allows for a more targeted treatment of bothersome fat. The CoolCurve+ will expose unnecessary fat to consistently cold temperatures for about a half-hour.

CoolSculpting is a proven technique that will truly impact the way you appear. CoolSculpting is not a weight loss solution but rather a body contouring technique. Patients see best results if they have completed the majority of their weight loss and need assistance eliminating their last remaining fat deposits. Dr. Lee will meet privately with every candidate to help them determine if CoolSculpting is right for them.

Before & After Photos


CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, non-invasive body contouring treatment! You can easily reduce your love handles and enhance the curvature of your body. CoolSculpting is an impressive treatment because it directly depletes fat deposits. When we reach adulthood, we each have a set number of fat cells in our bodies. These cells will fluctuate in size throughout our life but not go away.

Working out can only do so much to shrink your fat cells and surgical intervention can leave you resting at home for days.

CoolSculpting will target unwanted fat cells and diminish chubby areas with consistent results. The cold temperatures will kill off cells, allowing the body to metabolize them. The effects will be long-lasting. CoolSculpting truly impacts your fat count and will help you slim down your core.


CoolSculpting is the perfect procedure for men and women with a busy lifestyle. If you are looking to enhance your curves without surgery, CoolSculpting is your solution.

This treatment is revolutionary! You will be impressed with how much CoolSculpting will impact your appearance.

If you are frustrated from not seeing improvements from working out and dieting, CoolSculpting is the best back-up plan. With CoolSculpting, you don’t have to worry about injections, surgery prep, extensive downtime, narcotics, or scarring. All we need from you is to show up and relax!

CoolSculpting Treatment

You can return to your regular day after CoolSculpting treatment.

For the patient, CoolSculpting treatment is simple and restful. When you arrive at your appointment, you will be led to a state-of-the-art room complete with CoolSculpting technology. You will either lay down or be seated on a comfy chair. The CoolSculpting device will be placed against your flank. Treatments last thirty-five to sixty minutes. You will feel a slight pressure as the applicator is removed. The treated areas will be massaged for a few minutes after which you can return to your regular daily activity.


CoolSculpting does not require downtime. You can leave our office and return to your regular day. Your love handles may be numb for a few hours. Tingling sensations in the love handles are a common symptom as feeling returns. The skin where the applicator was suctioned to may be red for a few hours as well. All symptoms should fade within a few days.

CoolSculpting Flanks Results

In the days following treatment, the body will be locating and removing dead fat cells. Once the fat is broken down, the body will metabolize the cells. You will never have to worry about those fat cells again! The whole process will take a few weeks. Some patients report seeing improvement in their treated area after three to four weeks, but your best results will be visible after about two months. Each patient is unique and bodies will work at different speeds to metabolize fat.

Some patients require multiple CoolSculpting treatments to achieve their desired outcome.

The best way to keep your CoolSculpting results looking impressive is to maintain a healthy weight. Clean eating and activity will help you look and feel great for years to come!

Complementary Procedures

Two areas are often treated in one CoolSculpting procedure. If you are bothered by a double chin, back fat, a banana roll, jiggly thighs, underarm fat, or protruding abdomen, ask Dr. Lee if you can treat the area with CoolSculpting. A CoolSculpting appointment that treats two areas will take about an hour. This procedure will allow for comprehensive improvement of your body. Get rid of frustrating fat and truly improve the way you look with Coolsculpting!

Do you lose weight with CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss treatment. It is, however, a simple way to get rid of pockets of bothersome fat. CoolSculpting freezes fat away and the fat cells are removed by your body permanently. Consistent exposure to cold temperatures breaks down fat cell structures. Over a few weeks, your body will remove these cells through natural processes. Although you will lose some weight, it will not be significant. CoolSculpting is a great way to treat bulges of fat that don’t budge no matter what exercise or diet routine your implement. At ArtfulSurgery we recognize that each of our patients is unique. We want to create a healthy treatment that allows you to feel your best.

Can Ice Packs Reduce fat?

Ice packs cannot reduce fat as they lack the cryolipolysis technology of CoolSculpting applicators. CoolSculpting instruments implement exact temperatures so as not to damage skin tissue. Ice packs cannot be controlled as easily and may cause damage if left on the skin for prolonged periods. It is best to avoid at-home methods of freezing fat. These methods can result in injury or damage. CoolSculpting applicators have been developed, tested and cleared by the FDA to help men and women sculpt their bodies.

Does freezing fat really work?

Yes! Fat freezing is a revolutionary way to lower bothersome fat deposits. Fat freezing with CoolSculping has been lab-tested and FDA-approved.

Is CoolSculpting dangerous?

No. CoolSculpting is a thoroughly researched, FDA-cleared treatment that has improved the appearance of many men and women. Look through our CoolSculpting Before and After gallery to see how this procedure is impacting appearances.

How much does CoolSculpting cost for my ideal image?

The cost of your CoolSculpting treatment will relate to the number of areas being treated and what your aesthetic goals are. Dr. Lee and you will have the opportunity to meet together and discuss costs. This meeting will be a prime time to ask questions and learn more about CoolSculpting.

Does CoolSculpting work on thighs?

Yes. CoolSculpting is an excellent treatment for jiggly thighs. Applicators have been designed for both the inner and outer thighs. The CoolFit applicator is perfect for the soft inner thighs and may even help you develop an inner thigh gap. The CoolSmooth applicator was designed to reduce the exercise-resistant fat of the outer thighs. Whether you are looking to slim down your inner thighs or smooth out the bumps of the outer thighs, CoolSculpting is the perfect solution.
