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.
"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
"Young 50's Woman for TT, Lipo and Facial Fat Transfer - Harrison, NY - Dr Suzman is a true professional and talented surgeon, from the beginning was honest what I should expect, I even got some hand holding when needed with all my questions and concerns. I highly recommend and am thrilled with my results. Also, the outpatient facility staff was incredible, caring and on top of their game, I felt very cared for by the Dr, Heather, the anesthiologist and the staff at surgery center.Unfortunately, the one turn off was the payment staff miscommunicated with me regarding Care Credit options and failed to assist when i realized what she signed me up for. I did not care for the poor follow up and this has tainted my view of my experience. Otherwise 5 STARS ."- T. / RealSelf / Feb 12, 2018

"Doctor Suzman closed after my Mohs surgery. The surgery was in a sensitive area, on my nostril. Dr. Suzman and his team did a great job of fixing the wound and after only 1 month, it's hardly noticable. Amazing. I'm very happy to say the least."- D.K. / Google / Jan 14, 2018
"I researched my surgery and doctors for years. Once I consulted with Dr Suzman, I made my decision the same day to move ahead with the procedure. Dr Suzman and his team are incredibly amazing. They are expert and informative and professional, with a sensitivity and understanding to the patient’s needs. I am thrilled with the life changing results!"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Oct 16, 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.
