Few Calgary CoolSculpting providers offer the expertise and patient service that women and men find at Macleod Trail Plastic Surgery.

We can treat all areas of the body using CoolSculpting's specially designed applicators and, with two CoolSculpting devices, we can complete the procedures in half the time. Our board-certified plastic surgeons supervise a highly trained team of medical professionals who customize treatments to meet the needs of each patient.

Ideal CoolSculpting Candidates

Women and men can benefit from CoolSculpting if they're concerned about stubborn areas of fat that prevent them from being completely confident in their bodies. The most common treatment areas include:
Love handles
Inner and outer thighs
Double chin
Upper arms
Lower back
Bra fat
CoolSculpting isn't a weight-loss treatment. An ideal CoolSculpting patient is already at the weight they want to maintain, or within a few pounds of their target. Your skin should have good elasticity as well, because CoolSculpting doesn't tighten skin. During your consultation, a physical exam helps determine if CoolSculpting is the appropriate treatment path to address your concerns.

How CoolSculpting Works

Patients often wonder how a treatment can freeze fat cells without damaging the skin. To begin with, fat cells begin dying at temperatures that aren't harmful to the skin or other cells surrounding the fat. The CoolSculpting platform safely delivers controlled cooling with precision, gently targeting fat cells just below the skin. The system includes built-in safety measure that shuts the procedure down automatically if it detects the skin is getting too cold. CoolSculpting is clinically proven to reduce fat.

Specialized Applicators

One of the things you should look for when choosing a CoolSculpting provider is if the practice offers the complete range of applicators. CoolSculpting applicators are designed for specific treatment areas, but many practices only have 1 or 2 of them. We have the following applicators:
CoolAdvantage™ (abdomen, flanks, inner thighs, back of the thighs, lower back)
CoolAdvantage Petite™ (upper arms, inner thighs and flank, posterior thigh for more petite bodies)
CoolAdvantage™ PLUS (ideal for reducing bulk in larger treatment areas)
CoolMini™ (double chin, bra fat, back fat, thighs)
CoolSmooth PRO™ (outer thighs)
By offering the wide range of applicators, we can customize your CoolSculpting treatment in a way most providers can't match.

Treatment in Half the Time

We know your time is valuable, which is why we offer DualSculpting. It typically takes about 45 minutes per area for a CoolSculpting treatment. Most patients need 2 areas treated—for example, "love handles" on both sides of the body. Even the abdomen is usually treated as 2 areas; the upper and lower abdomen. So, the total treatment time can be as much as 1.5 hours. With the DualSculpting configuration, we are able to treat both areas at the same time, cutting your treatment time in half.

What to Expect

After deciding CoolSculpting is the best approach to address your concerns, we'll create a personalized treatment plan to produce the optimal results. In many cases, that may require more than a single treatment session. The procedure begins with a gel pad applied to the treatment area. We then attach the applicator and begin the careful cooling process. Some patients experience a bit of discomfort during the initial few moments before the area becomes numb. During the majority of the treatment session, though, patients often read, browse the internet, or even nap.

Recovery & Results

Because CoolSculpting is a noninvasive treatment, there is no healing afterwards. There's no downtime and patients can return to work or their normal activities immediately after the procedure. Some common side effects include redness and swelling in the treatment area. You won't see results from CoolSculpting right away because the fat cells die gradually. While experiences vary, changes usually begin to appear in 2 to 3 months, with the final results generally visible by 4 months. Some people may choose to have multiple CoolSculpting sessions for more thorough body contouring.
