Refine Your Body With Non-Surgical CoolSculpting® | Thousands of treatments performed!


CoolSculpting cedar falls IA

You may have tried it all — from crash diets to intense exercise routines — but nothing seems to be reducing the stubborn fat on your body. If you’re considering your next steps, you might think surgery is your best option, but as with many patients, invasive techniques can seem intimidating.

Until recently, it was hard for patients to find a procedure that would provide a compromise. You had to either undergo surgery or accept your body in its current state, but that’s no longer the case with CoolSculpting.

CoolSculpting at PCI Plastic Surgery can eliminate unwanted fat without incisions or downtime. The non-invasive and FDA-approved procedure performs what diet and exercise cannot and produces the figure you’ve been working so hard to achieve.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting uses a targeted cooling process to freeze fat cells, initiating a process that leads to their removal from the body. Because fat freezes at a higher temperature that water, fat cells are more susceptible to the effects of cooling than all other cell types. This cooling selectively eliminates fat cell leaving other tissues unaffected.

The procedure works by attaching a specified CoolSculpting applicator to the treatment area. Once positioned, cooling technology called Cryolipolysis starts to freeze the fat cells, which immediately triggers a process that leads to their elimination from the body. The treatment takes no longer than one hour and involves no incisions, sutures, scarring, needles or laser energy.

Dr. Andrews uses CoolSculpting to treat the:

  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Waist
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Chin

Because you’re awake for the procedure, you’re free to relax while you receive a CoolSculpting treatment. Many patients will read, watch TV, read e-mails or even nap as fat is eliminated from their bodies.

Is CoolSculpting Right for You?

If you’re struggling with stubborn fatty deposits, but don’t want to undergo surgery, CoolSculpting may be the best option for you. Dr. Andrews and his staff will help you decide whether the procedure will give you the results you’re looking for.

During a consultation, we will examine the fatty areas you’re interested in eliminating with CoolSculpting, and choose an applicator that will selectively target the specified treatment zone.

The number of treatment sessions you undergo will depend on your cosmetic goals as well as the regions you would like treated. Some patients see results after just one hour-long procedure, while others require two or three sessions before they achieve the results they want.

What Can You Expect After Treatment?

Immediately after your CoolSculpting procedure, you may feel numb around the treatment area. This sensation will subside within a few hours, but shouldn’t keep you from returning to your daily routine.

After one treatment session, you will notice a reduction in fat, but because fat cell metabolism is a gradual process, it may take 8-16 weeks before you see your full results. Once the fat cells are gone, they can no longer return, making CoolSculpting a permanent non-surgical procedure. It is important, however, that you maintain a healthy lifestyle to retain your results. If you and Dr. Andrews and his staff deem it necessary, you may undergo more than one treatment session to help you achieve an optimal outcome.

Why Choose PCI Plastic Surgery for Your CoolSculpting Treatment?

CoolSculpting Cedar Falls, WaterlooThere are many patients who are ideal candidates for CoolSculpting and some who are not. If you have very large deposits of fat in certain areas, CoolSculpting may not be the best choice for fat elimination in that area. You may have other areas that are ideal for CoolSculpting, but if you have significant fatty deposits in an area, liposuction may be a better choice. At PCI Plastic Surgery, we also offer liposuction, which may in fact be a less expensive and more effective alternative to CoolSculpting. In addition, if you have a lot of excess skin, stretch marks or you seek a flatter and tighter abdominal contour, a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) may be a better choice for you. We also offer tummy tuck surgery and thus can offer you the procedure that will most effectively help you reach your goals. We have seen patients who have had CoolSculpting treatments at other practices and were not happy with their results. Although those patients may have had a modest result with CoolSculpting, they were left with excess skin for which they sought our help. If they saw us first, we likely would have informed them that they could have used the money that they spent on CoolSculpting to help pay for their tummy tuck. Let us help you make an informed choice as to which procedure will most cost effectively help you achieve your body contouring goals.

If CoolSculpting is the right choice for you, within a few months of you CoolSculpting treatment, you’ll notice that your clothes fit better and that you appreciate your appearance even more. For additional information about CoolSculpting and how it can help you lose unwanted fat, contact PCI Plastic Surgery at (319) 382-8230 and schedule a consultation.

Since my hysterectomy, sex has been extremely painful. I suffered from extreme dryness and discomfort. I had no sex drive and was no longer able to experience an orgasm. Until, recently, when a friend told me about Courtney Albritton and PCI's ThermiVa treatment. I have had 2 of the 3 treatments and immediately experienced positive results. I am still in awe of the results I have experienced. The procedure was painless. Until ThermiVa, I had come to the realization that my sex life would no longer be what it once was pre-hysterectomy. I highly recommend this procedure.
