A More Natural Solution: CoolSculpting®

Cryolipolysis® popularly known as Coolsculpting is the non-invasive cooling of adipose tissue to induce lipolysis – the breaking down of fat cells – to reduce body fat.

Developed by Harvard scientists, the FDA-cleared, patented procedure uses a targeted cooling process that kills the fat cells underneath the skin, literally freezing them  and requiring no knives, suction hoses, needles, or scars. Because only fat cells are frozen, your healthy skin cells also remain healthy. Once crystallized, the fat cells die and are naturally removed from your body.

CoolSculpting® Before & After Results

 CoolSculpting® Patient Review

"I got Coolsculpting done at Dr. Rajagopal's office back in December, and I couldn't be happier with the results! After wanting this procedure, and researching for a long time, I finally decided on Dr Rajagopal! Her practice is known to be one of the top surgery centers in San Francisco, and she is the best plastic surgeon around ! So it was an easy choice for me to pick her practice. The staff were all very nice, and always making sure I was comfortable throughout the whole process. For the Coolsculpting I did two sections to my lower abdomen, and the process took about 2-3 hours.  There was minimal discomfort, and I was actually very relaxed! Netflix and tea while bundled up in warm blankets, can't get more comfy than that :3!! I started seeing drastic results at about 2 months, I was told 20-30% decrease of fat in the problem areas was a reasonable outcome, but I think the results exceeded my expectations!! Before and after pics will be posted! I am extremely happy with my results and I definitely recommend coming to Dr. Rajagopal's practice if you are considering Coolsculpting!" - Yelp Review

A Minimal Downtime Procedure

Unlike many other procedures, the CoolSculpting procedure takes very little time and is pretty simple to fit into your daily life. After yourCoolSculpting treatment, you can typically get right back to your day. Each treatment lasts one hour – the same time you might spend at the gym. You can easily fit your appointment into a lunch break.

After one visit, you’ll typically see a 20% improvement and reduction of fat. It takes a few months to fully realize the effects, mainly because it takes that long for your body to naturally dispose of the fat cells. And yes, you can lose even more with additional appointments.

The best results are noticed after 3 few months when your clothes will fit better and you will look better. What’s more, there are no pills or supplements. And as long as you maintain your normal diet and exercise, your long-term results should remain stable.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a good Candidate for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting  is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese or a substitute for surgical methods such as liposuction. Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. We can determine if treatment is right for you during a one-on-one consultation.

What happens during the treatment?

You and your clinician first select the area(s) to be treated. Your clinician will position the device on your body. The device will then draw the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure – enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. An hour or so later, depending on your needs, you’re done. Each treatment will provide 20% improvement – you can opt for more treatments to notice more results. You will need to wait 6-8 week between treatments.

What does it feel like?

As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people read, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.
