Put the Freeze on Fat for Good

CoolSculpting is the world’s #1 non-invasive fat removal treatment. This FDA-cleared procedure freezes and eliminates unwanted fat cells, without surgery or downtime.

The CoolSculpting procedure safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are frozen and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates the dead cells, leaving a slimmer, more sculpted you.

Losing Weight Vs Losing Fat

It may be confusing to hear that reducing fat is not the same as losing weight. It’s all about what happens to fat CELLS.

Losing weight makes fat cells smaller. It does not make fat cells go away. The number of fat cells in our bodies typically becomes a fixed number sometime in our teenage years. Losing or gaining weight generally does not increase or decrease the number of fat cells. Instead, it changes the size of the fat cells.

The CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells in treated areas by about 20% to 25%.

These fat cells are naturally processed and eliminated, so they won’t migrate to another area of your body. And, unlike what happens with other procedures, there’s no change to fat cells in untreated areas.*

Many of us have stubborn fat despite diet and exercise.

CoolSculpting® technology uses controlled cooling to target and kill only these fat cells.

In the weeks to follow, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells.

CoolSculpting procedure results are long-term*, as treated fat cells are gone for good.

Before and After Gallery


Am I a good candidate for the CoolSculpting procedure?

The CoolSculpting fat-reduction procedure is specially designed for those who have unwanted fat in targeted areas. Unlike weight-loss surgery such as gastric bypass, the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight-loss solution for people who are obese. Good candidates for the CoolSculpting procedure have noticeable bulges they’d like to get rid of in certain areas. Many people want a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.

Take our “Am I a Candidate?” Quiz or request a one-on-one consultation with the trained team at Western New York Breast Health to decide if CoolSculpting is right for you.

How much does the CoolSculpting procedure cost?

The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of treatments you need, and your ultimate goals. Most patients opt to receive treatments in multiple body areas in order to achieve their goals. The cost typically ranges between $2,000-$4,000, depending on the number of areas treated.

Western New York Breast Health offers financing options to make your CoolSculpting procedure more affordable, and our team of consultants will meet with you to tailor a plan to your body, your goals, and your budget.

How long is each treatment, and how many treatments will I need?

Our team of CoolSculpting professionals will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your treatment will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. Western New York Breast Health uses the latest technology of CoolSculpting, which can treat patients in 35-60 minutes. Some patients have more than one treatment during the same office visit. If needed, we’ll schedule additional treatments or office visits in order to meet your goals.

We’ve found that many of our patients read, check emails, or even take a nap during their treatments. Still curious? Hear about the CoolSculpting experience from people just like you.

Can the CoolSculpting procedure reduce fat anywhere on my body?

The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the submental area (double chin), thigh, abdomen and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll), and upper arm.

I don’t like my double chin! Can CoolSculpting help me get rid of it?

Yes! Western New York Breast Health’s CoolSculpting procedure can treat visible fat bulges under the chin and contour the neck. Freezing away fat from a double chin is as easy and tolerable as using the CoolSculpting procedure in other parts of the body. With CoolSculpting treatment for a double chin, patients see results after just 1 to 2 visits—with no surgery, no needles, and little to no downtime. See Lose Your Double Chin for more details.

Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?

Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), they die and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body. Check out the How It Works of the CoolSculpting procedure to learn more.

What does it feel like?

As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you typically feel intense cold. This soon dissipates. You may feel some pulling as suction is applied. The area generally goes numb within 5 to 10 minutes during treatment. Many patients read, watch videos, work on their laptops, or even take a nap during their CoolSculpting treatments.

After the treatment, you may feel some tingling as the area is massaged for 2 or 3 minutes. Patients are usually able to return to normal activities following their appointments. What to Expect has more information about what happens before, during, and after your CoolSculpting procedure.

Is the CoolSculpting procedure safe?

In the US, CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the submental area (under the chin), thigh, abdomen and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll), and upper arm. It is also FDA-cleared to affect the appearance of lax tissue with submental area (double chin) treatments. Read more on CoolSculpting’s safety by clicking here.

Who should NOT have the CoolSculpting Procedure?

CoolSculpting is not for everyone. You should not have the procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease, or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. The CoolSculpting procedure is not a treatment for obesity. As with any medical procedure, ask your physician if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.

Are there any side effects?

Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, or skin sensitivity. A sensation of fullness in the back of the throat after submental area (double chin) treatment may occur. These effects are temporary and generally resolve within days or weeks. Though rare, some additional side effects may occur. As with any medical procedure, ask your physician if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.

Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?

Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Patients often return to work on the same day after a CoolSculpting treatment is completed.

What happens after my CoolSculpting procedure?

Western New York Breast Health will schedule a follow-up assessment to review your results and discuss the option of additional treatments. We encourage you to maintain a healthy lifestyle. A healthy body is a happy one, and we want you to be happy with your results!

When will I see results?

You may start to see changes as quickly as 3 weeks after your treatment and will experience the most dramatic results after 2 months. Your body will still continue to flush out fat cells for up to 4 to 6 months after treatment.

The Before & After gallery shows what results look like several weeks after CoolSculpting treatment.

Do I need to take special supplements or follow a strict diet and exercise program?

CoolSculpting is not a diet program, so no supplements are required after your treatment and you won’t need to change any of your lifestyle habits. However, many patients do feel more motivated to take better care of themselves and adopt healthy living habits after a CoolSculpting treatment.

What happens if I gain weight after my CoolSculpting procedure?

Many people, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting procedure, feel even more motivated to stay close to their ideal weight. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas*. Learn more about fat cells and weight loss.
