CoolSculpting: Losing Fat Without Going Under the Knife
In the past, the idea of losing fat without going under seemed impossible. But all of that changed 10 years ago with the introduction of FDA-approved CoolSculpting.
CoolSculpting McLean is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses freezing temperatures to destroy fat bulges – without surgery, incisions, anesthesia, or downtime.

Who’s a Good Candidate for Losing Fat With CoolSculpting?
If you are interested in losing fat without going under, it’s important to make sure that CoolSculpting McLean is right for your needs and goals.
The ideal CoolSculpting McLean patient is a healthy adult who has localized areas of fat that persist despite a healthy diet and regular exercise. It’s also an excellent option for individuals with stubborn bulges who are not able or willing to undergo a surgical procedure like liposuction.
How Does CoolSculpting Get Rid of Fat Without Surgery?
Losing fat without going under is a quick, easy, and virtually painless process.
During a CoolSculpting procedure, the self-identified trouble spot is marked and covered with a gel pad. Then, a CoolSculpting applicator gently suctions fat and delivers controlled cooling. This patented cooling technology selectively injures fat cells and causes them to die.
In the coming weeks and months, destroyed fat cells are cleared from the body through the lymphatic system.
What Areas Can CoolSculpting Treat?
Fat freezing with CoolSculpting is currently cleared to eliminate fat from the abdomen, flanks, hips, thighs, back, banana roll, upper arms, under the chin, and under the jawline. Other areas, including the male chest, knees, and underarms, can be treated off-label.
How Long Does It Take to See Fat Reduction?
For the appropriate candidate, CoolSculpting McLean is extremely effective and can eliminate up to 24% of fat cells in the treatment area.
Patients will begin to see visible fat reduction and improved contours 4-6 weeks after a CoolSculpting treatment. Results will continue to progress over the next 8-12 weeks, and final effects are usually evident by 3-4 months.
