Coolsculpting® by Zeltiq — Frequently Asked Questions
How does Coolsculpting® Work?
Coolsculpting® selectively damages fat cells using the controlled application of cold to discrete areas of the body containing excess fat. Once damaged, the fat cells are eliminated by the body’s normal inflammatory response. This technology is based on research that has shown that fat cells are more susceptible to damage from cold than other cells, such as nerve and skin cells.
How does Coolsculpting® Feel?
Patients can feel the suction and the cold of the cooling unit. If there is discomfort, it tends to occur during the first 10 minutes of the procedure and tends to be mild. After the procedure there can be mild redness and bruising.
Am I a Good Candidate?
The benefit of consulting at the MedSpa at El Paso Cosmetic Surgery is that we can truly evaluated your concerns and have the ability to recommend surgical options, like tummy tuck or various forms of liposuction, being available if absolutely necessary. The goal of our professional staff is not just to “sell” you Coolsculpting®, but to recommend the best treatment to reach your expectations and goals. Coolsculpting® is generally recommended for people who are not considered overweight but still have smaller pockets of extra fat, despite exercise and diet. In these cases, Coolsculpting® is ideal. Such people usually have small to medium size pockets of fat and wish to avoid an invasive liposuction treatment. If excess skin is the primary problem then a tummy tuck may be required.
Zeltiq is not intended for cellulite and obesity problems, and does not substitute liposuction. If you have moderate amount of fat that you wish to eliminate, Coolsculpting® can be a good option.
How Long Do Coolsculpting® Results Last?
Since the fat cells are actually eliminated, the Coolsculpting® results are considered to be permanent. Around 25% of the unwanted fat can be removed in a single treatment. Slight contour differences are visible after three weeks but dramatic results may take between 3 to 6 months to be seen. This is the period of time the body needs to naturally eliminate the fat. Some patients may actually need a second treatment, which can be done after two to four months, reducing another 20% of fat.
How does Coolsculpting® Feel Afterward?
Discomfort, and sensation change can occur early after the procedure. These symptoms tend to be mild and usually resolve over the first two weeks. Sometimes a delayed sensitivity can develop requiring medication. We will cover all aspects at your consultation.
How Much Does Coolsculpting® Cost?
At your consultation we can determine the number or areas and how many treatments per area will be necessary to reach your expectations and goals.
Will I Need More Than One Treatment?
Maybe depending on the size of the fat bulge and your expectations. Each treatment reduces fat bulge thickness, on average, by an additional 20-30%. We will develop a complete transformation program to meet your aesthetic goals.

Losing weight makes fat cells smaller and does not eliminate fat cells. We are born with a fixed number of fat cells in our body. When losing or gaining weight, it does not increase the number of fat cells; rather the size of the fat cells. So, generally speaking, when you gain weight, the cell gets bigger and when you lose weight, they shrink.
When getting treated by Coolsculpting, you reduce the number of fat cells up to 25%. Thus, less number of fat cells in the treated area (approximately up to 25% less). You are more likely to see inches come off rather than weight loss.
However, if you do end up gaining the weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just the treated areas. The remaining fat cells in the treated area may inflate or increase in size giving an illusion of weight gain.
Many people feel motivated to maintain or even lose more inches or weight after a Coolsculpting procedures to see the best results.
