CoolSculpting Offers a Surgery-Free Liposuction Alternative

More than 220,000 Americans receive liposuction each year, but a new treatment promises to effectively get rid of fat without the risks of surgery.

Dr. Neil Sadick, a professor at Weill Cornell Medical College, calls the new procedure CoolSculpting, according to CBS 2’s Vanita Nair.

Two Harvard doctors created the procedure, which effectively removes extra fat by freezing cells. The treatment was cleared in April by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for treating a patient’s thighs, love handles and belly.

The CoolSculpting device freezes fat cells, which then drain naturally from the body.

“I think it’s the most proven technology,” Sadick told CBS 2 in New York.

Thirty-three-year-old yoga teacher and private chef Melissa Allerton recently received the CoolSculpting treatment on her stomach.

“[It felt] like a thin sheet of ice,” Allerton explained to CBS 2.

While it tends to take six to 12 weeks to see visible results, patients can lose as much as half an inch from the waistline after a single one-hour treatment. Sadick comments that the same area can be treated multiple times, but the first treatment tends to be the most effective.

About 425,000 CoolSculpting treatments were performed around the world in 2013, according to CBS 2.

“These techniques are not substitutes for liposuction,” Sadick noted to CBS 2. “They’re not for people that have large amounts of fats that need to be removed.”

He added that temporary side effects include developing bruising or redness on the skin.

CoolSculpting is simply one way to effectively remove fat. The liposuction industry’s leading laser-assisted system, SmartLipo also successfully destroys and permanently eliminates fat cells in specific parts of the body.
