Weight loss can be a complex process, and it’s even more difficult when you have pockets of extra fat in certain areas because of genetics or hormonal influences. These bulges might not go away no matter how much the number goes down on the scale. The great thing about CoolSculpting® Elite at our Portland practice is that the nonsurgical treatment can give you a more toned physique with natural-looking results—but without you having to worry about incisions or recovery time.

Not sure if non-surgical fat reduction is the most suitable option for you? You might qualify for this treatment if you:

  • Are at or close to your goal body weight
  • Do not need significant reshaping in any one area
  • Have some minor deposits of fat that are resistant to attempts to lose weight through exercise and dietary changes
  • Are not interested in having surgery or don’t want to have scars
  • Would like to target fat loss in a way that wouldn’t be possible at the gym
  • Want to lose a larger amount of fat than would be possible with just standard CoolSculpting®

The best cosmetic procedure to target excess fat varies depending on the individual. Plastic surgeons will consider your skin type, skin laxity, scars, and tattoos on areas that are being treated, along with the amount of pinchable subcutaneous fat you want to lose—and whether or not there’s a hernia in the treatment area. CoolSculpting® Elite isn’t designed for patients who have large amounts of fat to lose. You won’t be able to predict exactly how much fat will be lost during a session, but studies suggest that as much as 25 percent of the fat cells in a treatment area can be reduced in the area—and these fat cells can’t grow back. Note that some patients require multiple treatments to get the results they want.
