Despite following a healthy diet and exercise regimen, many people are still left with stubborn unwanted fat that often appears in the form of "muffin tops," "love handles," "saddle bags," "bra fat," and flabby arms. The solution for eliminating fat from these trouble areas and achieving the slender body you’ve always wanted is simple: CoolSculpting®.

- Little to No Downtime
- No Surgery or Scarring

Where CoolSculpting® Treats
Abdomen & Lower Back
The abdomen is one of the most difficult areas to rid of stubborn fat, and fat in the lower back can be especially noticeable even when wearing a loose waistband. You may also have difficulty finding flattering clothing that fits properly, and lowered self-esteem can make you self-conscious when wearing a bathing suit or other tummy-bearing clothing. After this procedure, patients generally see a noticeable decrease in these fat bulges that will continue to improve within two to four months.*
Flabby arms are an extremely common problem, especially among women. CoolSculpting® targets this problem area that is difficult to improve with diet and exercise, and provides leaner, more toned arms without leaving any scars. Wave hello with confidence and say goodbye to arm flab!*
The hips can be a problematic area, particularly for women, and excess fat in the hips is arduous to hide no matter what you wear. Pregnancy or weight fluctuations can make extra fat concentrate around the hips, but non-surgical cryolipolysis will effectively reduce your unwanted fat. The painless CoolSculpting® device will produce results that eliminate up to 25 percent of the fat in this area with just one treatment. You can finally wear bikini bottoms or a tight dress without worrying about being too "hippy."
Fat accumulation around the armpits (the so-called bra rolls) can be especially aggravating. This unwanted fat can draw attention from arms that are otherwise lean and muscular. Why hide your gorgeous arms with a sweater or long sleeves? Our CoolSculpting Mini device is small enough to reach the smallest areas around the armpits and provide patients with a more defined underarm area.
A double chin can add years to your image and it shouldn’t be the thing you can’t help but see in the mirror. Define your jawline and ditch the double chin with CoolSculpting®. It’s the safe, clinically proven way to eliminate the double chin and say hello to a younger-looking you!
Above the Knees
Exercise alone is not usually enough to improve the appearance of fat found above the knee caps. CoolSculpting® can easily address these small pockets of fat to create a truly defined look that lunges and squats simply can’t achieve alone!
The pocket of fat that forms below the buttocks and above the thigh crease, resembling the shape of a banana, is often called the banana roll. If you want to get rid of your banana rolls to feel confident in swimwear and achieve a slim, smooth lower buttock contour, CoolSculpting may be the solution for you!
Wobbly thighs and "saddle bags" are no match for CoolSculpting®. You can say good riddance to burdensome fat and achieve more slender, svelte inner and outer thighs as CoolSculpting® literally freezes the fat away. Have no fear of wearing short shorts and skirts after this procedure!
CoolSculpting® Vs. Liposuction
While CoolSculpting and liposuction both remove fat from the body, there are some key differences in how the procedures are performed that may influence your ultimate decision.
Dr. Wise is very knowledgeable about both non-surgical and surgical fat removal procedures. He will help you evaluate if CoolSculpting is the right procedure to get rid of your stubborn fat.
- Uses a targeted cooling process to treat fat cells*
- Only fat cells are frozen; does not damage healthy cells
- Fat cells are naturally treated through the body’s metabolic processes
- No anesthesia is required, simplifying your recovery
- The entire procedure can take as little as 35 minutes
- Patients can return to their daily activities immediately
- Results become visible in the first couple weeks of recovery
- Extremely safe procedure – the device shuts down automatically if it senses any complication
- Requires incisions that can result in scarring
- Uses a suctioning device to remove fat
- Damages surrounding tissue as fat is loosened, causing swelling
- Swelling and bruising may take up to several months to resolve
- The procedure typically takes about 2 hours
- May take several months to see results as your swelling subsides
Does CoolSculpting Hurt?
Because CoolSculpting is non-invasive, you will likely feel little to no pain during and after the procedure! During the procedure, you may feel a cool sensation near the treatment area, but you will accustom to the feeling and it will go away in a few minutes.
The specially-designed device is comfortable on the skin and many patients read a book or play their favorite smartphone games while the fat-freezing happens. You are welcome to bring something to keep yourself occupied, or simply take a nap!
Recovering From A CoolSculpting Procedure
Perhaps the greatest thing about the CoolSculpting procedure is the virtually non-existent recovery time. You likely won’t need to take any time off work, exercise, or other activities, which means you are free to resume your favorite activities right away. Side effects are extremely mild and you will usually not need any medication for pain or discomfort. Any side effects you experience will naturally fade with time.
The frozen fat cells are slowly flushed out of your body through your liver and expelled naturally. Your trim and slender figure will soon be revealed as your body sheds fat cells in the treatment area, and those results will stick around for many years.

Am I A Good Candidate For CoolSculpting?
The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. Age, genetics, or other factors can contribute to your body’s propensity to hold on to fat in certain areas, leading to difficult pockets of extra “flab.” Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. The CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.
The procedure can be performed on men or women of virtually any age. Patients typically also have good skin elasticity so their skin remains tight after the reduction of fat. Finally, you should be at a steady and manageable weight, and women should not be expecting any more children. It is suggested that you be near your goal weight and not expecting any drastic changes to increase the permanence of your results. Request a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Wise who will determine if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.
Does CoolSculpting make you lose weight?
CoolSculpting is not a method for losing weight, but rather a treatment to reduce the amount of fat cells in your body. During the process of cryolipolysis, fat cells are frozen, and your body will naturally eliminate the fat cell tissue over the following few months, causing a visible reduction in size of the area treated. Fat cells do not weigh very much, which is why you will not notice a reduction in weight. Rather, you will look as if you've lost a few pounds because of your slimmer appearance. These results are permanent.
Are there negative effects of CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a noninvasive body contouring procedure that has been approved by the FDA for more than ten years. Patients can experience minor side effects with CoolSculpting, including slight pain, some redness, bruising, or swelling. These symptoms generally resolve within 48 to 72 hours after your treatment.
Is CoolSculpting permanent?
CoolSculpting freezes the cells, and once the dead fat cells process through your body, they are gone. It is important to maintain a healthy weight as the remaining fat cells can expand if you put on additional pounds. Even if you gain weight, less fat will accumulate in the treated area.
Does CoolSculpting tighten loose skin?
Once cells are frozen and pass through your body as waste, your skin will most likely contract as your fat diminishes. This process happens over several weeks. There are additional treatment options for those who may not have good skin elasticity or are concerned about pre-existing loose skin.
Before & After
Dr. Wise and his staff are amazing. Every step of my procedure was explained to me in great detail. I felt extremely comfortable. I felt as if I were surrounded by family in the office. My procedure was painless and the results were truly amazing. I was able to see results immediately and was thrilled. My results looked so natural and exceeded way beyond expectations. I can’t thank Dr. Wise and his staff enough for my new natural look.
