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.

"Great doctor - Excellent doctor, so nice and did a fantastic job on removing my basil cell cancer. The wind was very deep and did not look like it was going to heal well but now you can hardly tell that there was anything done and it is only three months later."- B. / RealSelf / Jun 04, 2018

"I never had surgery before, so I was extremely nervous to have a breast reduction. I was also worried about my recovery. Dr Suzman, Heather, and the rest of the staff were extremely caring and assured me everything was going to be ok. Everything wasn’t just ok it was amazing! My reduction was everything I wanted and more and I was able to recover quickly and enjoy the rest of my summer! I highly recommend Dr Suzman for he has forever changed my life for the better. Thank you!?"- D.J. / Facebook / Jan 10, 2018
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.
