Although everyone is eligible for CoolSculpting, patients need to have a one-on-one consultation with a qualified CoolSculpting physician. Additionally, there isn’t any one-size-fits all treatment plan for every person. Dr Yvonne Goh will customize a CoolSculpting treatment plan that is optimal for you.

Reducing stubborn fat is perhaps the most difficult thing to do. Love handles, muffin tops, back fat, pregnancy pooch may all sound like adorable nicknames for bulging fat, but it certainly does not look pretty. Often, no matter how much one diets or exercises, these types of fat refuse to even budge by an inch.
Some people may opt for surgical procedures such as liposuction but any kind of surgery poses risk. Moreover, surgical procedures are invasive and most shy away from going under the knife. Then, how can one reduce love handles?
The safest, most effective and non-surgical alternative to reducing fatty tissue in problem areas is through CoolSculpting. With over one million CoolSculpting treatments given to happy individuals, this technique ensures that stubborn fat are zapped. Based on the science called Cryolipolysis, which was developed by two Harvard University scientists, CoolSculpting specifically targets problem areas by freezing fat cells. Crystallized fat cells are naturally reduced from the body. Soon after the procedure, individuals who have undergone the treatment will see results. Fat cells will continue to die for a period of time. In fact, patients will experience a significant loss of fat in due time.
CoolSculpting by ZELTIQ reduces the fat layer by a device which gently pulls the bulge up and between two cooling panels. For the first few minutes, patients may experience a cold sensation, which immediately dissipates. Many read a book, take a nap, watch a movie or check their emails during the one to three hour procedure.
Unlike many cosmetic and fat-reducing treatments available today, CoolSculpting is non-invasive. It simply freezes fat cells, which are then flushed out from the body. No knives, no scary devices, and no cuts are made. Cooling is only targeted to problem areas.
CoolSculpting is a safe and effective method in reducing stubborn body fat. It is cleared by the FDA and is extensively used to zap fat on the thighs, abdomen and flank areas.
Perhaps the biggest advantage of CoolSculpting is that it is devoid of any adverse side-effects. Patients may experience some amount of tugging, pulling and numbness or discomfort during the procedure that quickly passes. Temporary side-effects may include numbness, redness, bruising, discomfort, or tingling that quickly subsides.
The no-fuss, no-muss procedure ensures that patients can resume normal activities following the completion of the procedure. Individuals can go to work, exercise, and even take their dog for a walk with ease.
Normally, if we put on weight, the fat cells will grow in size; but if the freezing process has been carried out on an area, then there are no longer any cells there to get bigger.
