If patients are looking for a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction, then CoolSculpting may be ideal for them. CoolSculpting is recommended by our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. G. Robert Meger, for individuals who are typically active and fit but want to eliminate fat around the waist or thighs. The procedure utilizes a cutting-edge process in order to freeze fat cells at a low temperature without causing injury to nearby tissues. This is referred to as cryolipolysis, which destroys the undesirable fat cells. Targeted fat is then metabolized and disposed of as part of the body’s regular elimination process. Studies reveal that most people can lower fat by 20 - 25% after just one session. Patients can schedule a consultation at G. Robert Meger, M.D. P.C. in Phoenix, AZ to learn more.

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
- A healthy, ideal body weight
- Fat that is resistant to diet and exercise
What to Expect
CoolSculpting is a simple procedure that usually takes about 1 - 2 hours per therapy location and does not need an anesthesia. For the very first 10 minutes of therapy, patients could feel a strong sensation of coldness as cryolipolysis occurs. Many of our patients are able to relax during the process and become used to the feeling as the treatment advances. Some individuals read, watch tv, or just unwind during treatment.
After the procedure, patients may observe some numbness, soreness, or prickling around the treatment location, which will last for a few weeks. Patients can expect some bruising, light swelling, or redness, which should subside in a few days. Individuals can see gradual results during several months while their body removes the fat cells. Many patients begin to observe that their clothes are fitting more freely around month 2, and the changes continue to appear for another month or so.
