CoolSculpting is an advanced, non-invasive procedure that seeks to target and eliminate fat cells. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Michael Suzman, at WESTMED Group in Westchester County, NY offers CoolSculpting at his pratice as an alternative to liposuction and other surgical fat removal procedures. CoolSculpting works by freezing the unwanted fat cells and allowing the body's natural elimination process to take over and dispose of the fat over time. The technology is precise and does not harm the surrounding areas, making it effective and minimally invasive. It should be noted that this is not an alternative to weight loss but is used to target stubborn, specific areas that retain fat resistant to diet and exercise.
In addition to CoolSculpting, another procedure known as TruSculpting can be applied to compliment the results. This is another treatment for contouring certain body parts and cellulite reduction, which uses radio frequency technology to smooth the skin, reduce fat, and stimulate the production of collagen for ongoing results.

"Dr Suzman is an excellent surgeon. I've had rhinoplasty with septoplasty and upper blepharoplasty performed by him. Both procedures had an excellent outcome with minimal discomfort and aesthetically, both were very pleasing and natural looking. I needed no pain medication afterwards in the days that followed in recovery. Without a single hesitation, I recommend Dr Suzman and his team 100%. He is so humble , precise, knowledgeable and excellent in the procedures that he performs. Thank you, Dr Suzman, JH."- J. / Google / Aug 22, 2017

CoolSculpting nonsurgical liposuction is not a solution for obesity or a quick fix for weight loss. The best patients show:
- Good skin tone and elasticity
- Near their healthy, ideal body weight
- Fat that is resistant to diet and exercise
What to Expect
With just one application of CoolSculpting, most patients will see up to a 20% reduction in fat about 3 weeks after their treatment when the frozen fat cells have passed through the body. You should see smoother skin and decreased fat. You will have to remain on a healthy eating and exercise regime to maintain your results, but the body will finally release those stubborn cells. This painless and noninvasive treatment will provide a sculpted, slimmer figure.
Many patients nap, watch television, or read during their CoolSculpting procedure. The feeling is similar to a mild tugging sensation, but most patients experience no pain. The patient may experience some cold pressure in the treated area as it is placed between the two cooling panels. There may be some redness or minimal bruising, but it is temporary. Most treatments take about an hour, but this varies based on the size of the area being treated.
