CoolSculpting® is the latest innovation in non-invasive alternatives to traditional plastic surgery procedures such as liposuction. Available to both men and women, CoolSculpting® utilizes patented technology that freezes fat, causing it to break down and leaving it to be metabolized and disposed of by the body’s natural cleansing process.
As a safe and effective way to reduce fat in common trouble areas that have been resistant to diet and exercise, CoolSculpting® has been clinically shown to reduce fat in the treated areas. This alternative to liposuction is FDA cleared, and is the only method of non-invasive fat reduction that uses this cooling method, which is backed by research conducted in affiliation with Harvard research scientists.

On average, the CoolSculpting® treatment takes approximately one to two hours per treated area. Because of the non-invasive nature of the procedure, patients are able to rest and relax, check email, or read while undergoing treatment. With minimal discomfort and usually no downtime, patients are able to resume their daily activities immediately following the procedure.
Results from CoolSculpting® can typically be seen within 3 weeks, with the most dramatic results typically developing about 2 months after the treatment. There is no need for special dietary supplements or exercise programs, and results can be long-lasting and sustainable with the pursuit of a healthy lifestyle.
CoolSculpting® for Women
Women often come to Fremont Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery hoping to reclaim their figures and regain the confidence they once had in their bodies. CoolSculpting® allows our plastic surgeon, Dr. Eric Okamoto, to address common trouble spots for women, including love handles that seem impossible to get rid of.
Following the procedure, many of Dr. Okamoto’s female patients have found that their jeans fit better, their favorite dress accentuates their curves and flatters their bodies the way it used to, and they return to the ‘skinny’ area of their closets.
CoolSculpting® for Men
Dr. Okamoto’s male patients find CoolSculpting® presents a no-hassle, surgery-free option to reduce fat in common problem areas that stick around regardless of the number of crunches they do at the gym.
The procedure is discreet and can help men get rid of that spare tire and love handles that have gradually shown up over the years. With CoolSculpting®, Dr. Okamoto hopes to help his male patients feel more confident shirtless on the beach or by the pool, and help them regain their confidence and stop the need for more notches in the belt.
