WHAT IS COOLSCULPTING?
Fat is stored in fat cells. An average human body has approximately 30 billion fat cells. This number is set during childhood and adolescence and will remain fairly stable throughout adulthood. When you gain weight, you don’t gain fat cells. The cells you already have will expand to accommodate additional fat. Likewise, when you lose weight, you don’t lose fat cells. They simply shrink to store less fat.
Diet and exercise provide whole-body results. As you cut calories, fat cells across the body shrink as you lose weight. When you go on a diet, you can’t target specific areas for fat loss.
While diet and exercise shrink fat cells, CoolSculpting works by destroying them. Fat doesn’t like cold. When your fat cells are exposed to frigid temperatures, they break down and are destroyed. CoolSculpting uses specialized cooling technology to target and freeze unwanted fat. This treatment allows us to pinpoint treatment areas, focusing your fat loss on the areas where you want to lose fat.
After treatment, the body will remove the treated fat cells through natural elimination processes. These fat cells are permanently destroyed. Since the total number of fat cells remains stable in an adult body, these fat cells won’t return. CoolSculpting provides long-lasting fat reduction in targeted areas on the body. It is an ideal solution for your trouble spots.
Emily's coolsculpting journey
“Growing-up, I always had insecurities (about) my weight and always knew I needed to work-out really hard. As a 25 year old woman, I still have issues with my weight and still go to the gym and workout hard. I first heard of Coolsculpting a couple years ago in different Medspas. Once the opportunity was presented to me at Farber Plastic Surgery, I was so excited to actually try it and put it to the test. Coolsculpting is a non-surgical procedure that will freeze fat cells. During my consultation with Dr. Farber, I was able to discuss my problematic areas (which was my abdomen) and to be sure that I was a good candidate…
“What is to be expected from Coolsculpting would be some tenderness. It was also explained to me that over the next 3 months your body naturally loses those dead cells and they don’t ever come back. Secondly, he made it clear that it would need to be pinchable fat so therefore, the machine would be able to suction it. After my consult, I decided to move forward and put it to the test! My first day of treatment I was super nervous.They used different colored sharpies to mark up my stomach and to know exactly where to target the “stubborn Fat” and where to place the Coolsculpting Machine. Once I laid down to begin my treatment there is a pre- treatment wipe and a gel pad to prevent frostbite. Next came the Coolsculpting Machine. As I laid there, I began to feel the Cold began to feel slightly uncomfortable and once it became really cold you felt numb and slowly began to ease.
Each applicator takes 35 minutes. So imagine I had a total of 6 different areas to treat. My abdomen took about 3 hours.The best part yet is you have distractions. I was set up with Netflix, my phone and lunch. When I was finished with my treatment, my stomach was swollen and felt tenderness which I was told I would experience for a couple days. After a couple weeks passed, my stomach no longer felt sore. The swelling went down and started to see a result. After noticing such a difference in my first treatment I began my second treatment. My second treatment was such a success, I was so obsessed with Coolsculpting. I would recommend this to anyone who’s thinking about Coolsculpting and 100 percent do this again.
Thank you Farber Plastic Surgery :)”

CoolSculpting’s results are impressive. Don’t take our word for it. Come in for treatment and see the transformation on your very own waistline. The average patient loses approximately 10-25% of the fat layer in a treated area. For an additional fat loss of up to 25%, a second CoolSculpting treatment can be performed.
Most of our patients find their treatment is highly tolerable. If you’re receiving CoolSculpting, you’ll feel intense cold. The sensation quickly fades to a gentle numbing throughout treatment. Patients report pressure, tingling, tugging, stinging, and suction sensations throughout treatment. Some patients experience mild cramping or a dull ache in the treatment areas.
CoolSculpting results will appear gradually in months following treatment. Patients typically see initial changes about one month after treatment with dramatic improvement after three months.
To maintain your results, we recommend that patients remain at a stable weight post-treatment. CoolSculpting is an enhancement to the healthy lifestyle you’re already living.
One CoolSculpting treatment will provide a noticeable fat reduction. Many patients love their results so much that they opt for a second CoolSculpting treatment in the same area or come back to reduce fat in another area.
CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared and has been demonstrated as safe in many clinical trials. Dr. Farber prioritizes patient safety and only offers treatments that he feels are safe and effective to his patients.
CoolSculpting is a fat reduction treatment, not a weight loss procedure. We recommend that patients are close to their ideal weight prior to treatment. You may drop pounds, but the real results are seen in the elimination of bulges and rolls.
We understand that some patients are interested in achieving improved aesthetic results through non-invasive and non-surgical options. Today we are able to tighten, slim, and tone with the power of technology. CoolSculpting and CoolTone offer many benefits over traditional weight loss and surgical body contouring procedures like liposuction. Diet and exercise are the hallmarks of a thin, trim body, but all too often, these healthy lifestyle habits aren’t enough to get rid of stubborn fat or build muscle. While diet and exercise shrink fat cells, CoolSculpting works by destroying them. CoolSculpting provides long-lasting fat reduction by 25-30% in targeted areas of the body. It is an ideal solution for your trouble spots, and does not require any downtime or recovery. In addition, CoolTone is a non-surgical treatment that enhances muscle tone. It works by initiating muscle contractions, more frequent and stronger than a naturally-produced muscle contraction, to tighten and build your muscles. Both of these procedures may be the perfect solution for what you are hoping to achieve.
Coolsculpting is an excellent non-invasive technique that provides a 30% fat reduction to the treated area. There is no down time. Liposuction provides a greater fat reduction but includes a recovery period of 1-2 weeks. Brachioplasty or “arm lift” may be required if there is loose skin in addition to stubborn fat. A unique treatment plan is designed based on each individual patient’s aesthetic goals.
It is important to schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon like myself to discuss your aesthetic goals and learn which procedure would be best suited for you. CoolSculpting can be a fantastic option to treat submental fat in the appropriate patient. Coolsculpting is a nonsurgical body-contouring treatment that freezes small pockets of stubborn fat just under the skin, using a technology called cryolipolysis. The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the submental (under the chin) and submandibular (under the jawline) areas. Coolsculpting can also lead to a certain degree of skin tightening when performed to the chin area. While diet and exercise shrink fat cells, CoolSculpting works by destroying them. CoolSculpting provides long-lasting fat reduction by 25-30% in targeted areas of the body. Coolsculpting may be an ideal solution for your trouble areas, and does not require any downtime or recovery.
Diastasis recti is when muscles separate. It usually occurs after pregnancy. As a result of diastasis recti, the stomach protrudes or “pooches”. During an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck, Dr Farber sutures the separatedmuscles back together as an “internal corset”. Cooltone is a non-invasive technology that can improve rectus diastasis and lead to a strengthened core and more toned and defined abdomen.
