Does Coolsculpting Really Work?

Summer means a beach body, but sometimes no amount of healthy eating and exercise can get you the results you want. If you are looking for a little cosmetic help, look no further than Villano | MD in Bend, Oregon. Dr. Villano is a dual-board certified plastic surgeon with the American Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery and the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. But just because you want a little help sculpting the body doesn’t mean you have to go under the knife. That’s where Coolsculping comes in.


Coolsculpting, scientifically called cryolipolysis, is a relatively new FDA-cleared fat-freezing procedure that doesn’t require surgery, invasive techniques, or anesthesia. The procedure is lunch-hour quick and recovery time is minimal so you can get back to enjoying summer faster. By freezing fat cells under the skin, Coolsculpting utilizes controlled cooling to completely get rid of stubborn fat deposits. It is administered with a handheld device that simply freezes and firms stubborn fat cells.

Common treatment areas include abs, love handles, back, arms, and under the chin. Coolsculpting is not designed for extreme weight loss, but patients have seen significant success.

Does it work?

Patients who have received Coolsculpting see results in a few weeks. A clinical trial performed in 2014, published in Clinical, Cosmetic, and Investigational Dermatology, showed that 25% of subcutaneous fat was reduced with the use of cryolipolysis. When you work out and eat right, your fat cells shrink. If you don’t keep up with your healthy regime, your fat cells have the potential to grow and fat is once again created. With Coolsculpting, your fat cells are completely destroyed. Which means that the procedure, in combination with healthy eating and a regular workout regime, can reduce fat and keep it away.
