CoolSculpting is a revolutionary, nonsurgical fat reduction technique. This fat-freezing technology has been proven to reduce pockets of fat in areas resistant to diet and exercise, such as the abdomen, flanks, and under the chin. CoolSculpting can produce a 20–25% reduction in thickness of the fat layer from a single session.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting (technical name: cryolipolysis) has the ability to freeze fat cells without affecting the surrounding skin or tissue, and also destroys the ability to store fat in the treated area. The damaged fat cells are then eliminated from your body within 1-3 months, resulting in 20-25% fat reduction in the treated area. The bottom line: CoolSculpting freezes and kills fat cells, giving you a much slimmer shape.

Am I a candidate for CoolSculpting?

Do you want to get rid of those stubborn pockets of fat that just aren't going away with diet and exercise? Do you want to do this without surgery? If so, you may be a candidate for CoolSculpting in NYC with Dr.Ariel Ostad. This innovative technology uses temperature, rather than needles or knives, to eliminate unwanted fat. Developed by a scientist at Harvard University, CoolSculpting technology has been approved by the FDA for reducing fat in the inner thighs, outer thighs, flanks, chin, and abdominal areas. It is designed to reduce localized fat deposits in individuals who are at or near their ideal body weight. CoolSculpting is not a treatment for obesity.

Before & After

What can I expect with CoolSculpting treatments?

  • If you are a candidate for CoolSculpting, Dr. Ostad will work with you to create a custom-tailored treatment plan.
  • During your CoolSculpting session, we will apply a clear gel pad to the treatment area to create a barrier between the cooling panel and your skin.
  • You can expect to feel a slight sucking sensation as the CoolSculpting applicator adheres to your body.
  • During the procedure, you may experience certain sensations at the treatment site, such as pulling, tugging, mild pinching, tingling, stinging, cramping, or intense cold; these sensations will subside as the treatment area becomes numb.
  • Once the area is numb, treatment becomes so comfortable that many of our patients take a nap, read, watch a movie, or check emails during the procedure.
  • When treatment time has elapsed, your practitioner will detach the applicator and briefly massage the area to break up the treated fat cells and enhance fat reduction.

Does CoolSculpting require recovery time?

There is little or no downtime after an NYC CoolSculpting treatment. You may experience temporary, mild bruising or swelling at the treatment site, which should resolve quickly. You will be able to resume normal activities immediately.


What should I know if I am considering Coolsculpting in NYC?

CoolSculpting is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures, with hundreds of treatments performed annually in our office. If you are considering this innovative, body-sculpting treatment, you should know the procedure is noninvasive with no downtime and the side effects are minimal. CoolSculpting is so fast and gentle it can be performed during your lunch break. Results develop gradually and naturally, and you can expect visible improvement in a matter of weeks. Full results develop over the months following treatment. CoolSculpting destroys fat cells for long-lasting results, but treatment can be repeated if necessary, for additional fat reduction.

How does CoolSculpting work?

This technology works by delivering a controlled cool temperature that targets fat cells beneath the skin. The treated cells begin to die off within a two to three-month period. Your body will naturally flush out the destroyed fat cells. The result is a sculpted, slimmed-down version of you.

What areas of the body can be treated with CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting can be used to reduce fat deposits in many areas: upper arms, abdomen, flanks, back, love handles, inner thighs, outer things, banana roll (underneath the buttocks), knees, under the chin, and under the jawline.

How long does a CoolSculpting treatment take?

Treatment time will depend on which and how many areas of the body are treated in a session. Some areas can be treated in as little as 35 minutes.

How many CoolSculpting treatments will I need?

The number of treatments needed for optimal results will vary from person to person. You can expect to see a reduction of as much as 20–25% fat in the treated area after a single treatment session.

When will I see results?

You should begin to see changes as early as one to three months post-treatment. Final results can take up to six months or longer to appear.

How long will my results last?

CoolSculpting results are long-lasting. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they are gone for good and can no longer accumulate or store fat.

How do I know if CoolSculpting is right for me?

Dr. Ostad and his team will conduct a consultation and evaluation. If you have multiple cosmetic concerns, we will work with you to individually-tailor a treatment plan. If CoolSculpting is a good option for you, we will discuss the procedure, recovery, and expected results.
