CoolSculpting® Procedure


The CoolSculpting procedure eliminates stubborn fat safely and effectively, without surgery or downtime. This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet- and exercise-resistant fat. CoolSculpting results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you'll look and feel great from every angle.

Freeze away fat? It comes down to science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.

You can reshape your body! We will develop a customized CoolSculpting treatment plan that addresses your problem areas. Additional sessions may further enhance your results. Your individualized treatment plan will be tailored to your body, your goals and your budget.

It’s easy to sit back, relax and say goodbye to stubborn fat. After we select the area(s) to be treated, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. During your procedure, you may choose to read, check email or even take a nap.

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

You will like what you see. In the weeks and months following your procedure, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they're gone for good.

Are you ready to love every view of you? The sooner you set up your consultation, the sooner you'll see results in the mirror — long-term results in those areas that have resisted all efforts through diet and exercise. Contact us today to find out if the CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is right for you. 

Results and patient experience may vary.


Frequently asked questions

How long is each session? How many sessions will I need?

We will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting session will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. We may schedule additional sessions in order to meet your goals.

Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?

Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), your body processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.

What does it feel like?

As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop or even take a nap during their treatment.

Is the CoolSculpting procedure safe?

The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the flank (love handles), abdomen and thigh. With over one million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.

Are there any side effects?

During the procedure you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or discomfort. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and pain. Rare side effects may also occur. The CoolSculpting procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. The CoolSculpting procedure is not a treatment for obesity. As with any medical procedure, ask us if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.

Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?

Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Often times, patients return to work after their CoolSculpting session is over.

When will I see results?

You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.

Do I need to take special supplements or follow a strict diet and exercise program?

No supplements or pills are required and you do not have to adopt new diet and exercise habits. Many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after their CoolSculpting treatment. It is as if they get a second lease on their body and want to start anew again by taking even better care of themselves.

What happens if I gain weight down the road?

Many people, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting procedure, take even better care of themselves. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated area.

Frequently asked questions

What is BodyTite?

BodyTite is a great solution for individuals who are looking to reduce fat without the saggy, wrinkly skin. It also helps improve skin laxity after weight loss or due to aging. BodyTite is a minimally invasive procedure that shapes, contracts and lifts without the scalpel or scar. BodyTite uses RFAL (Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis) technology that addresses some of the shortcomings associated with traditional liposuction or surgical body lifts.

What areas can be treated?

If you can imagine it, you can do it: stomach, arms, chest, knees and inner/outer thighs are some of the most common treatment zones. Multiple areas can be treated in one visit. Each zone will take approximately 15 minutes of treatment.

How quickly will I see results?

Results can be seen immediately, with best results noticeable after 6 months, and continuing up to 12 months.

What is the downtime?

Depending on the treatment area, downtime can be from 1-2 days up to 10 days.

BODYTITE EFFECTS: BodyTite gently treats fat in stubborn areas while tightening the skin, helping you sculpt your body into its ultimate shape.

Contoura BodyFx and MiniFx

What is Contoura BodyFx and MiniFx ?


Contoura BodyFx  and MiniFx are noninvasive devices for killing fat tissue and tightening skin and is specifically designed to smooth out areas of cellulite. In studies, 30% of adipose (fat) cells to a depth of 2.5 cm were destroyed and this innovative technology also aided in building 13.7% new collagen in the area of treatment. New collagen deposition helps with the appearance of a more youthful, firmer, smoother and tighter skin appearance.  Very few technologies, if any, have proven scientifically that they increase collagen deposition. Contoura is the only device of its class that has been able to scientifically prove significant collagen deposition in studies.


Contoura works by heating the adipose tissue and increases the metabolic rate, causing fat cells to shrink. Contour BodyFx combines radiofrequency (RF), a suction coupled vacuum and oscillating electrode pulses  to induce fat cell death and it continues to work over time. There is a 40% reduction in fat thickness at 3 months in posttreatment studies. Mean abdominal volume loss post treatment was 202.4 and 428.5 cc at 1 and 3 month post treatment, respectively. The device has built in safety features to minimize complications and to maximize comfort. Specifically, for cellulite, skin is made smoother with less divots and bumps by decreasing the herniation of fat into the dermis, by flattening nodules and elevating pits and by reducing the vertical height of adipose tissue. This process remodels the skin to create a smoother and less bumpy-lumpy appearance, thus minimizing cellulite.


For the treatment of cellulite and loose skin, 2-5 sessions, one week apart is usually all that is needed to achieve a desired effect. If there is moderate to severe laxity in the skin, one session a week for 6-8 weeks will achieve a more desirable effect. With this loose type of skin,  to further slowdown the ongoing skin aging process, one session every 1-3 months may be necessary. For the best treatment of cellulite and for skin tightening in larger areas such as the abdomen and legs, the BodyFx works wonders. For smaller areas such as the chin, neck, arms, elbows and inner knees, there is the MiniFx.


From the postpartum woman with abdominal laxity to the woman with significant weight loss who now has loose abdominal skin, from the woman with creping skin on the arms and neck to the  woman with cellulite on the legs and buttocks, Contoura is for you.  You can look your best and Contoura will help.  Come in for a free consultation today.

Tumescent Liposuction


What is Tumescent Liposuction?

Tumescent Liposuction, performed totally by tumescent local anesthesia is a distinct form of liposuction.  Tumescent liposuction totally by local anesthesia has proven to be extremely safe.  In fact, there have been no deaths reported in association with tumescent liposuction totally by local anesthesia.  This form of liposuction is the standard of care for dermatologic surgeons in the USA and Canada.  To the best of my knowledge there are no plastic surgery training programs or courses in North America that teach this form of liposuction.  In fact, I would be surprised if more than a handful of the plastic surgeons in North American are experienced in performing tumescent liposuction without parenteral sedation or general anesthesia. It is different from liposuction performed under general anesthesia but has the same cosmetic effect and is much safer. The cannula’s used in tumescent liposuction are generally smaller resulting in less scarring and pain. 


Is Tumescent Liposuction safe?

Liposuction under general anesthesia has a safety profile that is dramatically different than the safety of liposuction totally by local anesthesia.  Virtually every liposuction-related death ever reported in the literature has been associated with general anesthesia or IV sedation.  There have been several hundred such reported deaths.  It is not surprising that surgeons who have been trained exclusively in this form of liposuction, and who have never observed any other form of liposuction, might not be aware of stark differences between these two dramatically different (homonymic) forms of liposuction.

Areas for Liposuction

reas for liposuction include the abdomen, breasts, arms, inner and outer thighs, neck, back, hips and knees. The fat removed can be discarded or transferred to the buttocks, face, hands or breasts.

Why choose us to do your Tumescent Liposuction? 

I am one of more than 600 surgeons (in the world) who have completed the rigorous 24 hour-CME approved training course (Liposuction 101) in the technique of tumescent liposuction taught by Jeffrey A. Klein, MD a dermatologist.  Dr. Klein invented the tumescent technique for liposuction totally by local anesthesia.  He has been on Larry King’s CNN, 20/20  and other renowned television programs for his innovative, safe and cosmetically effective technique, which I have witnessed to be pain free and yields phenomenal results!  The technique is a dermatologic technique. The criteria for being qualified to perform liposuction totally by local anesthesia have been defined by dermatologists.  Tumescent liposuction totally by local anesthesia is a dermatologic technique that is recognized by the American Board of Dermatology to be within the domain of dermatologic  and other surgical subspecialties, including trained ob/gyns. OB/GYN is a surgical subspecialty.  The American Academy of Dermatology and the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery have guidelines for liposuction training and I  have completely satisfied the suggested prerequisites for training and experience for doing liposuction totally by local anesthesia.
