CoolSculpting is an advanced procedure created to sculpt and shape the body by freezing away difficult fat without surgery. The technique employs the application of monitored cooling, also known as cryolipolysis, to freeze fat cells so they may be naturally flushed from your body to reveal a tauter silhouette. At Plastic Surgery Vegas in Las Vegas, NV, we employ the use of CoolSculpting to help you realize your aesthetic goals. Schedule an appointment for more information about this revolutionary cryolipolysis technology and to discover if CoolSculpting is the right solution for you.
"My experience at "Plastic Surgery Vegas" practice has been amazing.Everyone I came in contact with was very welcoming and professional. I can not speak highly enough of Dr. Higgins and his close staff (Laura & Kristin). This was to be my 4th breast augmentation in 25years (my 1st with Dr. Higgins), which included reconstruction/lift due to wanting to go smaller with this surgery. After my initial consultation with Dr. Higgins, I felt very comfortable and confident to proceed, but as a nurse, I had a few more questions. His reception had no problem scheduling an additional appointment to address any additional concerns. In my career as a nurse, I have met and worked with many physicians over the years. I have come across very few surgeons as authentic, caring, skilled and talented as Dr. Higgins. I felt that Dr. Higgins really listened to me, and addressed my questions and concerns. As most people are,,,, I was nervous about the surgery but felt very taken care of by Dr. Higgins and his staff all the way into to O.R. and just prior to being put to sleep. In all of my previous surgeries, I had never been met with such attention and compassion up to and beyond my surgery. Additionally, my results are PHENOMENAL, and have far exceeded my expectations. I would trust & recommend Dr. Higgins, as well as "Plastic Surgery Vegas" not only to complete strangers, but to anyone I love and care about. Las Vegas is a city that attracts lots of Plastic surgeons, which can make choosing a quality Plastic surgeon VERY difficult. I took my time, I did my research, and am extremely happy I did. If you expect quality care and results, Dr. Higgins, and Plastic Surgery Vegas will far exceed your expectations."- M.N. / Google / Jan 25, 2020

Candidates for coolsculpting
Although this procedure has proven beneficial for both men and women of all ages, those who are most likely to benefit from CoolSculpting:
- Are at or near their ideal weight
- Struggle with stubborn areas of fat that don't respond to natural weight loss efforts
- Are not interested in or do not qualify for more invasive procedures
- Understand realistic goals for the outcome of their treatment
Following your consultation with our team to design your CoolSculpting treatment plan, your first procedure will be scheduled. At your appointment, a specialized gel pad and the CoolSculpting handpiece are used on the chosen area and controlled cooling will begin. The cooling, delivered by the applicator, will target and freeze the fat. You will probably experience a cold sensation at the time of your treatment, but this does not typically cause pain. As the CoolSculpting applicator uses suction to pull the targeted fat toward the area to be treated, you may experience a slight tugging or pinching, but these are completely normal sensations.
Your coolsculpting results
Since CoolSculpting is noninvasive, you will be able to return to daily activities almost immediately after your procedure. Symptoms of the procedure usually include redness, swelling, bruising, stinging, and soreness of the treatment site. These symptoms are temporary and typically subside in the hours and days following your treatment. You can expect to enjoy results within three weeks while you will see the most obvious and dramatic results 1 – 3 months following your CoolSculpting procedure.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting involves using a controlled temperature to target fat cells in predetermined areas for treatment. Basically, it freezes the fat cells, which are then broken up by the body and disposed of through natural functions.
Is CoolSculpting safe?
CoolSculpting is a noninvasive, external treatment where the device is applied simply to the skin’s surface. With this treatment, there is no need for a healing period. You might experience some minor swelling and redness immediately after the session, but this generally only lasts for about one week.
How many treatment sessions will I need?
The number of treatments recommended to achieve your wanted results will be decided during your initial consultation. For some patients, just one treatment is sufficient while others might need more therapy sessions, depending on the quantity of fat being addressed. The number of treatments is dependent on your aesthetic objectives and if there are larger layers of fat in target sections.
Do the fat cells grow back?
While the affected fat cells can't regenerate, brand new fat cells could form. Furthermore, considerable weight gain will greatly impact your results. So in order to keep your desired results, it's crucial to stick to a proper diet plan and workout routine.
There is no "perfect" body, and we all have things we wish to change, such as specific pockets of fat that don't respond to diet and exercise. Thanks to technological advances, it is no longer necessary to decide between living with the excess fat and surgical fat removal. Plastic Surgery Vegas is pleased to be able to offer Las Vegas, NV women and men CoolSculpting to remove areas of stubborn fat to attain a slimmer, smoother body. Schedule a consultation to learn if you are a candidate for CoolSculpting or if another procedure would be more appropriate for your needs.
