As a noninvasive fat reduction treatment, CoolSculpting Elite does not require the downtime associated with surgical procedures such as liposuction.

How is CoolSculpting Elite performed?

After your consultation at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center to design your treatment plan, your procedure will be arranged. At your appointment, the CoolSculpting Elite dual applicators and a special gel pad will be applied to the desired area and controlled cooling will be initiated. These CoolSculpting Elite applicators are 18% larger than the original Coolsculpting applicators, and able to treat a larger area at once. The cooling, delivered through the handpiece, will target and freeze the fat cells. It is not uncommon to feel coolness while receiving treatment, but this should not cause great discomfort. As the applicators use suction to pull the fat into the area to be treated, you can expect to feel a minor tugging or pinching, but these are normal sensations.

What Can I expect during and After Coolsculpting Elite?

As CoolSculpting Elite is noninvasive, you can return to normal activities after treatment. Typically, you can return to work or school immediately following your procedure. Side effects of the procedure usually include stinging, redness, swelling, bruising, and soreness of the treatment area. These side effects are temporary and typically subside in the hours following your procedure. You should expect to enjoy results in as little as three weeks, with the most impressive results appearing 1 – 3 months after your CoolSculpting Elite treatment.
