CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, exciting new treatment that allows people to shed unwanted weight quickly, painlessly, and permanently. If you’re having trouble shaking some stubborn pounds and haven’t considered this treatment, it may be exactly what you have been looking for. At Murphy Plastic Surgery
in Englewood, CO, we specialize in helping people achieve their ideal weight through these types of treatment plans.
Does CoolSculpting Work?
The short answer is yes, it absolutely works! This treatment is incredibly effective at reducing unwanted weight and giving you a svelte and lovely shape. It’s completely safe, FDA-approved, and non-invasive. Some people find the treatment so pleasant that they even fall asleep or catch up on their reading during it. Unlike other surgical options, there’s no downtime, and you can go right back to the business of living your life as soon as you walk out the door.
What Does This Treatment Entail?
This treatment works by freezing fat cells, effectively neutralizing them, and letting your body’s own waste removal process extinguish them from the body. It employs a process called cryo lipolysis, which can remove up to 25 percent of fat cells from a given area. All patients vary, and some people might have more pronounced results than others. It’s important for you to talk to us about your goals so that we can set you up with a treatment plan that is right for you.
This treatment is totally non-invasive and is performed with a series of applicators that our team will use on your target area. It’s a gentle process that does not involve any needles or surgical equipment. You will be fully awake and comfortable during the entire appointment, and you can ask us any questions that you would like about the treatment or how things are going.
Our team has also performed several of these treatments, so we know exactly what to expect and how to maximize your experience. Rest assured, you are in very capable hands.
Invasive versus Non-Invasive
Some people wonder if non-invasive treatment methods, like CoolSculpting, are as effective as invasive ones like liposuction or tummy tucks. Realistically, if you want to lose a small amount of weight in a targeted area, non-invasive treatments are preferable. First, there are no needles or incisions to contend with. Non-invasive treatments are virtually pain-free. You also don’t need any recovery time after a non-invasive treatment. You can even start exercising almost right away.
Although invasive treatments, like liposuction, give you immediate results, many people prefer the process of CoolSculpting because it looks like you’re losing weight naturally. Since this treatment works with your body to expel neutralized fat cells, your weight loss journey will be less sudden and seem a lot smoother. For those with a few little “problem areas” on their bodies, non-invasive treatments are a great choice.
What Should I Expect From This Treatment?
Each treatment session should take between thirty minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the area you are targeting and the scope of the work. We will be able to give you a better idea of what you can expect when you come in for your consultation. Since most people don’t need more than an hour per appointment, you can easily get this treatment done while on your lunch break or in between running errands. Most people find that these treatments are a breeze and that they’re in and out with absolutely no downtime required afterward.
Every person is different, and your treatment results will hinge largely on how quickly your body rids itself of neutralized fat cells. That’s why it’s so important to drink a lot of water after your appointment. Water helps flush ad cleanse the body of impurities. As an added bonus, water can contribute to a glowing complexion as well. Unlike invasive surgery options, most people do not see results right away. Your body needs to clear the dead fat cells before you can experience the full effects.
Usually, you will start to see results within a few weeks, and many people continue to see more results for some time after that.
This treatment is fully FDA-approved and completely safe to use in many places on the body. The Food and Drug Administration cleared it in 2010, and since then, it has helped many people just like you get the weight loss and slimming results they want.
Where Do People Typically Get This Treatment?
Although you can get this treatment in many different places on your body, most people like to target their lower and upper abdomen. CoolSculpting is great at whittling down your belly and love handles. Additionally, you can get the treatment done on your arms, back, thighs, or even your chin. The chin is actually become a more popular spot, as it’s completely safe and approved and helps get rid of the subtle jowly area without facelifts or other invasive treatments.
This treatment won’t leave you with any unwanted scarring, and it’s completely painless and non-invasive. You don’t need to be anesthetized or deal with any kind of recovery time. Additionally, we can treat many different areas of your body in a single session, minimizing the amount of time that you need to be in the office.
One of the biggest benefits of this treatment is that the results are permanent. Once your fat cells are neutralized, they are gone forever!
Who Is an Ideal Candidate?
Those who want to whittle away a little extra weight from their bodies are excellent candidates for this treatment. If you want to lose quite a bit of weight or need a lot of loose skin removed, you would be better off opting for a different treatment plan. Our team can talk to you about your options and work with you to determine what treatment plan is best for what you want. Since no two people are the same, we believe in personalized care that will get you the best results.
If you are close to your ideal weight but just need a little help with a few areas of your body, CoolSculpting might be just the thing that you’ve been looking for. Some people actually find that this treatment helps them to jump-start a diet and exercise regimen because it gives them a glimpse of what their new, toned, and slimmer body looks like, prompting people to continue down the path of good health and exercise.

We will let you know realistically how it can affect your body, how many sessions you might need, and when you can realistically expect to start seeing results. We believe in a completely transparent process that allows you to be completely on board with your treatment plan from start to finish. Our priority is your comfort and satisfaction.
Many women decide to have this treatment done after giving birth. Cosmetic adjustments are common for new moms, and there’s even a term for them; “mommy makeovers”. Although most mommy makeovers involve invasive treatments like tummy tucks and liposuction, they don’t have to. CoolSculpting is an excellent and safe option for those who want to regain their former figure after giving birth. Since there’s no necessary recovery time, you won’t miss a minute of caring for your new child after the treatment is done. It’s a great option and something nice to do for yourself after you have given birth.
There are far more people who are ideal candidates than who are not. If you have any questions about your eligibility or if this treatment is right for you, talk to our staff. We are happy to answer any questions that you might have.
Caring for Your Body Post-Treatment
Although this treatment is permanent, you can still gain weight after treatment if you don’t care for your diet and exercise. Many people see it as a good motivation to start living healthier. There are plenty of ways that you can take care of your body in the long run, post-treatment, like eating well, managing stress, setting up a good sleep schedule, and exercising regularly.
Immediately after your treatment, you should consider drinking more water than you normally do. Drinking extra water will help your body flush out all of the neutralized fat cells and help you to lose weight quicker. Hydration is important after any treatment, but especially after one where your body does a good share of the work. Employing positive health habits is a good way to maintain your svelte figure and look your best in the long run.
Sleep is vital to looking and feeling your best. People who don’t get enough sleep tend to overeat and have a more difficult time managing stress. Start tracking your sleep patterns to make sure that you get your eight hours every night, and consider banning screens after a certain period in the evening. Abstaining from caffeine in the afternoons is another excellent way to make sure that you get your proper rest.
A proper diet full of complex carbohydrates, fruits, and vegetables is one sure-fire way to keep your weight down and your energy levels up. Try to cut back on processed foods and incorporate a few new vegetables into your diet every week. Sneak in additional leafy greens by preparing a smoothie with spinach, orange juice, strawberries, banana, and just a little bit of honey. You won’t taste the spinach, but you will get all of the health benefits.
Alternate cardiovascular and strength exercises to keep your body strong and performing optimally. Exercise can eliminate fat and build muscle, which makes you look more toned and can compliment the CoolSculpting treatment results.
Stress can wreak havoc on our health and bodies and often leads to excess weight buildup. Come up with healthy ways to counteract stress, and try to head off big problems before they spiral out of control. A healthy diet and sleep schedule can also help with stress management.
