CoolSculpting® is the leading non-invasive fat reduction procedure, helping patients enhance the contours of the body without any surgery or downtime. Eko Plastic Surgery is proud to offer this procedure to the residents of Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage and Palm Springs, CA.
CoolSculpting® is an FDA-cleared procedure for contouring specific areas of the body, like the thighs, knees, banana roll, arms, abdomen, hips, back, or even under the chin. This non-invasive procedure eliminates stubborn fat deposits that are unresponsive to diet and exercise, all without the use of surgery or incisions of any kind. CoolSculpting® works by freezing and killing fat cells, allowing the body to eliminate them naturally. As the fat cells are eliminated from the body, patients will notice a slimmer and more toned figure.
The cost of your CoolSculpting® treatment at Eko Plastic Surgery will vary depending on the treatment plan that we develop for you. During your consultation, we will discuss your cosmetic goals and treatment needs in order to determine the treatment approach that will be ideal for you. For this reason, we will not be able to provide you with the cost of your treatment until you have the chance to come in and discuss your treatment goals with Dr. Eko.
The CoolSculpting® treatment involves no incisions and requires no anesthesia. To begin the treatment, the CoolSculpting® applicator will be placed on the desired treatment area. It uses vacuum pressure to pull the skin and underlying fat into the vacuum cup, where it applies precise cooling energy to freeze fat cells without damaging the surrounding cells and tissue. You may feel some tugging, pinching or cooling sensations during the procedure, but most patients are able to read, relax, or even take a nap for the duration of the treatment. A single CoolSculpting® treatment takes one hour or less.
CoolSculpting® is non-surgical and non-invasive, so there is no downtime or recovery period necessary after treatment. Patients may experience minor redness, sensitivity or temporary numbness in the treatment area, but these effects typically fade within a few hours. Patients will be able to return to work and other normal activities (including exercise)immediately after their appointment.
The results from CoolSculpting® will gradually become visible as the body naturally eliminates the treated fat cells. Most patients notice results within a month, but it can take about three months for the full results of treatment to become visible. In most cases, patients will need multiple treatment sessions to achieve their desired results. During your consultation, we will let you know how many treatments will be needed for optimal results.
The treated fat cells die during the CoolSculpting® procedure, and the body eliminates them over the following months. These fat cells are permanently removed from the body and are no longer able to accumulate fat. Patients can enjoy long-lasting and even permanent results from CoolSculpting®. However, it is important to note that future weight gain can impact the results from your CoolSculpting® treatment.

Once the fat cells die, the body eliminates them over the following months and they’re gone for good. Because your body’s normal metabolic processes do the work by removing the fat cells and filtering out any toxins they may contain through the lymphatic system. Your health is protected naturally throughout the process and once your body finishes its “clean-up” work, those fat cells are permanently removed. The Coolsculpting applicator is designed to protect your skin as it attacks the fat underneath, so there’s no risk of burns or scars as there can be with heat-based fat removal methods.
