CoolSculpting technology delivers precise and controlled cooling to effectively and safely target the fat cells under the skin. This fat reduction procedure is the only FDA-cleared technique that uses controlled cooling to target and remove fat safely.
• Removes stubborn fat without any surgery or downtime
• Long-lasting and natural looking results
• Patients can have multiple treatments to achieve optimal results
• No needles
• No anaesthesia
• No medications
During the CoolSculpting treatment, an applicator will be used to evenly dispense cooling to the target area to eliminate fat cells. Each targeted area takes about an hour to treat and 28 to 30 percent of those fat cells will be destroyed. But, it is important to remember that every patient is different. When the fat cells eventually die the body absorbs and releases them naturally. When used along with healthy diet and exercise, this fat reducing treatment will give you natural-looking results.
Patients are often worried that CoolSculpting treatment will be painful. But, you will be glad to know that the procedure is well tolerated by patients and is completely painless. As it is a non-invasive treatment, there is no need for any anaesthetic or pain relief during the procedure. The treatment has been described as causing a slight pulling or tightening sensation, as well as coldness on the skin. But, since you are in a semi upright position, you are free to read or work on your laptop during the treatment or relax during the procedure; the choice is yours.
At Dr Saras & Co, we have clinics around Sydney that provide CoolSculpting treatments to enable patients to look and feel the way that they want. To begin with, you will attend a consultation with a professional to determine whether this is the right treatment for you and discuss your goals from CoolSculpting. This is also your opportunity to ask any questions about the procedure and have your queries answered by a professional.
• Inner and outer thighs – Treat stubborn fat deposits that just won’t shift with exercise and diet.

The ideal candidate must have noticeable excess fat in the areas that they want to eliminate. It is important to remember that the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. However, it is a non-invasive alternative to liposuction. CoolSculpting is mainly designed for individuals who have unwanted and stubborn fat that resists diet and exercise. This procedure is suitable for men and women.
There is no downtime associated with CoolSculpting. Patients are free to resume their normal activities and working life straight after treatment. Some patients experience minor bruising, redness, discomfort, numbness or tingling in the treated area, but these side effects are only temporary and will resolve completely.
Results from CoolSculpting can be realised straight after the first session. But, even more noticeable fat reduction will be seen gradually over time as the body naturally absorbs the fat cells. Every patient is different and depending on your goals, you may have more than one session to attend. The results from CoolSculpting are considered permanent, but if you gain weight, this will affect your overall shape again.
