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.
"Excellent surgeon - Dr Suzman did a superb job on my facelift. He also did fat transfer, chemical peel and Botox. I love the way I look in the mirror thanks to Dr Suzman. He has a terrific, caring personality - he is wonderful! No problem getting appointments, no wait time. Office staff is wonderful. I could not be more pleased."- Anonymous / Vitals / Jan 30, 2019
"Dr Suzman has the BEST bedside manner. I am so pleased with his work and the professionalism and kindness of his staff. I’m so grateful to Dr Suzman."- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Mar 05, 2020
"Dr. Suzman is so caring and so knowledgeable. I have seen him many times over the years for both cosmetic and medical reasons. He is a calming presence. If you want to see him for cosmetic reasons, he’s fantastic. You will NEVER look like you had filler or Botox. You will just look younger. If you are going for medical reasons, he is really the best. Very thoughtful in his approach."- C.A. / Google / Jan 24, 2020
"Dr. Suzman closed after my MOHS surgery. The surgery was front & center on my nose. I have to say -- Dr. Suzman & the staff at his office, as well as the Rye Ambulatory Center, made a painful and uncomfortable situation as pleasant as possible with his informative, calming & pleasant nature, as well as a super-delightful staff. Helen Reyes, his PA-C, who handled a lot of my post-op visits and fresh wound care, was superb. Highly recommend."- G.D. / Google / Oct 26, 2019

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.
