Face the world with confidence

If you are one of the many adults who have tried unsuccessfully to lose those stubborn pounds of fat from your belly, waist, thighs or buttocks, our NYC CoolSculpting may be the answer you’ve been waiting for. Endless dieting and exercise with little to no results can leave you drained, hopeless and chronically stressed. While surgical procedures such as liposuction or tummy tucks are always an option, many patients are turning to FDA-approved CoolSculpting as a safe, non-invasive, non-surgical procedure to revolutionize their appearance.

CoolSculpting makes use of an advanced cosmetic technology called cryolipolysis in which unwanted fat cells are frozen until they die (apoptosis). These crystalized subcutaneous fat cells are then reabsorbed by the body and flushed out as waste. With CoolSculpting, there are no incisions, no scars, no anesthesia, and no downtime. The outer layers of healthy skin tissue, muscle and nerves are preserved and remain vibrant after the procedure, while the targeted areas of fat are beautifully sculpted, contoured, slimmed and toned.

Why should clients choose CoolSculpting NYC

As a double board certified plastic surgeon who is consistently on the front lines of the latest cosmetic breakthroughs, Dr. Kwak was among the first New York physicians to champion CoolSculpting, successfully performing the procedure on scores of satisfied clients.

During your confidential initial consultation, Dr. Kwak will carefully review your goals and wishes, along with your medical history, prior surgeries, and vital signs. Before and after photos can go a long way in ensuring both doctor and patient are on the same page regarding expectations.

It’s important to note that while CoolSculpting in New York can be a godsend for many, certain body types may require a more complex approach to fat loss. In these cases, Dr. Kwak may recommend a treatment plan that pairs CoolSculpting with additional body contouring methods.

Before & After

What to expect from CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting in New York City is a relaxing one-hour procedure during which you will be able to watch a movie on your laptop or tablet, make business calls, take a nap, read a book or listen to music. A friendly ESK technician will gently outline the targeted areas of flesh with a cooling gel before placing the cryolipolysis device on your skin. The device contains smart panels that will strategically freeze your fat without disturbing the rest of your cells. To guard against human error, each panel is computer-monitored by temperature-controlled safety sensors.

During the process, you will feel a mild suction sensation from the panels, which means the procedure is working. The frozen fat cells are then reabsorbed into the body and simply processed like any other type of waste to be naturally processed. After CoolSculpting is finished, the panels are removed and patients can return to their regular routines for the rest of the day.

Eligibility for CoolSculpting

Both men and women are eligible for the CoolSculpting procedure. Some other eligibility criteria are:

  • Patients who are unable to have or are not willing to have a surgical fat removal treatment
  • Patients around 30 pounds of their ideal body weight
  • Patients with excess fat on the body
  • Patients with elasticity in the skin
  • Patients who do not suffer from circulatory diseases

If you’re unsure whether you fulfill all or any of the above criteria, feel free to visit Dr. Kwak at our New York City clinic for a consultation. He will analyze your medical history and your requirements and inform you about your eligibility for the CoolSculpting procedure.

A permanent solution to your worries

One of the biggest advantages of the CoolSculpting treatment is how the procedure offers a permanent, non-surgical solution to your weight loss concern. This treatment uses state-of-the-art Cryolipolysis® technology to freeze and kill fat cells in the body. Once destroyed, the fat cells are gone for good, leaving behind a smooth and flawless body.

Does this mean I’ll never gain weight again?

The CoolSculpting treatment is designed to permanently destroy fat cells in the treated areas of the body. As a result, only the areas treated will never experience a fat accumulation post-procedure.

However, this isn’t true for the non-treated portions of the body. Please note, if you gain weight in any of the non-treated areas of the body, you will notice the development of pockets of fat in those areas.

But there is a silver lining. Considering how the CoolSculpting treatment reduces the overall percentage of fat in the body, your body won’t appear extremely heavy or chunky even if you gain weight. With proper weight management and a healthy lifestyle, you can retain the slender and beautiful look you have.

Safety first at ESK MD

The CoolSculpting procedure uses the latest in fat reduction technology, which has been designed, developed and tested in conjunction with the foremost medical cosmetic experts in the world. This makes this treatment extremely safe for men and women of all ages.

However, as with all cosmetic treatments, you may experience minor bruising and pain post-treatment. But, these symptoms will reduce within a few hours. The CoolSculpting procedure has one of the shortest downtimes of a few hours to a day, and patients will observe the results of the procedure within 1-3 weeks of the treatment.

Recovery from CoolSculpting

While CoolSculpting is not painful, clients may experience some tingling, tenderness, numbness or redness in the treatment zones. This is very normal and should resolve itself within a week or so.*

CoolSculpting results can be visible within the first 21 days, however the positive changes can continue to impress as the weeks and months follow. The most dramatic outcomes can usually be seen at around 2-4 months post-procedure. Results are can be great, provided the patient maintains a healthy diet and exercise routine. If a greater transformation is required, the treatment can be repeated multiple times at the doctor’s discretion for optimum results.*

*Individual Results May Vary.
