Coolsculpting Treatment Procedures in Houston

Offered in Our Houston Office by Dr. Cara Downey

Coolsculpting - Downey Plastic SurgeryFor those wishing to drop those final stubborn pounds, Downey Plastic Surgery now offers Coolsculpting, a new form of a non-invasive procedure that can be performed as part of an office visit. For those new to this exciting breakthrough, we examine some pertinent questions.

What Is Coolsculpting?

Coolsculpting, also known as cryolipolysis, is a revolutionary way to eliminate fat by freezing it. The procedure induces lipolysis, or the breakdown of fat cells, which are then absorbed by the body and expelled through the lymphatic system.

How Is the Coolsculpting Procedure Performed?

The Coolsculpting procedure is performed by Dr. Cara Downey in Houston. First, a pad filled with cool gel will be placed on the area to be treated. Then the applicator cup will be expertly positioned in order to create a vacuum that will allow the fat tissue to be gently pulled between the cooled panels. Following treatment, the pad and applicator will be removed, and a technician will use pinpointed massage techniques to manually assist the breakdown of fat. Each session lasts about one hour.

What Is Recovery from Coolsulpting Like?

Recovering from a Coolsculpting procedure is easy and most return to their normal activities following treatment. There may be some redness immediately following the procedure, but this typically dissipates within an hour. Patients may have some swelling, which may last for several days to a week. Some tenderness is also to be expected, but this symptom typically subsides within two weeks of the procedure. Some patients also experience temporary numbness or a “pins and needles” sensation in the treated area. However, these symptoms also disappear within about two weeks of the Coolsculpting procedure.

How Many Treatments Do I Need?

Each patient is different, but most are able to eliminate about 20% to 25% of the fat in the area treated during each one hour session. For many, we recommend 2 treatments to get full correction.
