Body Contouring Q & A

What type of body contouring procedure will I receive?

The team at AMI Surgery eliminates unwanted pockets of fat using CoolSculpting. This treatment freezes fat cells, which makes the cells break down. Your body clears away the cells to permanently eliminate the treated fat.

The process works because fat cells are more sensitive to cold temperatures than your skin. CoolSculpting lowers the temperature just enough to affect the fat cells without harming the surrounding tissues.

What areas can I treat with body contouring?

The CoolSculpting system comes with applicators designed to fit different areas of your body. You can get rid of a double chin and eliminate excess fat in your:

  • Jawline
  • Abdomen
  • Love handles (flanks)
  • Upper back (bra fat)
  • General back area
  • Upper arms
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks

When you schedule your appointment, the team talks with you about the body areas you want to slim. Then they create a customized treatment plan that fits your goals. 

What should I expect during body contouring?

Your provider places a gel pad over the targeted area and then puts the CoolSculpting applicator on the pad. The cooling panels in the applicator quickly lower the temperature in that area. 

You may feel a slight sucking sensation, along with pulling, mild pinching, tingling, and intense cold. These sensations all go away as soon as the area becomes numb.

The length of your CoolSculpting session and the number of treatments you need depends on how many body areas you want to treat. One session takes only about 35 minutes.

When your session is finished, your provider massages the area and you can return to your normal daily routine. Most patients experience short-term side effects like swelling, redness, bruising, tenderness, itching, and tingling.

When will I see results from body contouring?

It takes a little time for all the treated fat cells to break down. Your body continues to flush away the fat cells for up to six months. Most patients start to see results in 1-3 months, with optimal results in six months or longer.

If you’re ready to slim down and get the toned body you envision, call AMI Surgery or schedule an appointment online today.
