As technology advances, more people are turning to fat reduction methods like CoolSculpting to help them achieve the body they've always wanted. But how many treatments do you need to see results? Now you can learn the details of CoolSculpting from a trained plastic surgeon in Dallas.

Successful CoolSculpting treatment requires 1 – 3 sessions based on the areas involved and desired outcomes. Below, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Phillip Dauwe explores how many sessions one might need and tips to keep your results long-term. Call Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery to see if our methods are right for your goals.

Who should get CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a great option for adults who want to reduce small but persistent fat in the abdomen, hips, thighs, arms, or buttocks. The best candidates tend to be relatively fit and at a healthy weight but still have some areas that lack definition or are hidden by excess tissue. We also see women get CoolSculpting for the lower abdomen and thighs after pregnancy.

What are the benefits of CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting works by carefully cooling the targeted areas, which kills fat cells. Once these cells are damaged, they are naturally removed from the body through normal metabolic functions.

This method of fat reduction is especially beneficial for people who are interested in a leaner look but are not willing to undergo cosmetic surgery or other invasive methods that may require lengthy recovery periods. Other advantages of CoolSculpting treatment include:

  • Noninvasive procedure with little to no downtime

  • Treatment takes just under one hour

  • Reduce fat in multiple areas

  • Can be repeated for more dramatic outcomes

  • Safe and effective for most adults

How many CoolSculpting sessions do I need?

A plastic surgeon in Dallas can inform you about the number of CoolSculpting treatments needed after a complete evaluation. Dr. Dauwe will take into account your overall health and medical history, as well as your natural fat distribution. One session may be enough to see results, but two or three treatments tend to produce the best outcomes.

Can I come back for more than one session?

Patients who get CoolSculpting in the abdomen, hips, or thighs can return for additional treatments in other areas. It's best to consult with a specialist with experience in CoolSculpting to find out the best plan for your situation. Dr. Dauwe can create a custom treatment plan if you are interested in multiple sessions at our office.

How do I keep CoolSculpting results long-term?

As with any form of fat reduction, CoolSculpting results are long-term if you continue to maintain a steady weight. If you gain a lot of weight afterward, the existing fat cells may re-expand and you may need to repeat the procedure. We recommend that patients keep up with a healthy lifestyle and diet after CoolSculpting.

Schedule your CoolSculpting sessions

Even small fat pockets can be frustrating, especially when one is trying to achieve a slimmer appearance they love. With the help of CoolSculpting, patients can reduce persistent fat without invasive surgery. Consult with a plastic surgeon in Dallas to see if this method is right for you.
