Q: How long does the CoolSculpting procedure last and how many treatments are needed? I'm interested on having it done on my stomach.

A: CoolSculpting is ideally suited for the abdominal area and the love handle area. Ideal candidates are patients who will be satisfied with a 25 percent reduction of their fat contour. Repeat treatments can be done at 3 month intervals if you need some additional improvement. Once the fat is resolved, the improvement should remain IF you do not increase your weight. Weight gain after any fat removing procedure is going to alter your post-operative improvement. It is important for patients to understand that CoolSculpting is ideal for patients with small to moderate contour bulges. Patients with significant contour bulges are going to get a more satisfying result with standard liposuction.
