Body Contouring Using CoolSculpting®

Welcome to the new era of quick and painless body reshaping. The new solution for targeted fat loss called CoolSculpting® is a totally new approach that can help people shed fat without surgery, anesthesia, and hospitalization. Dr. Colville and Dr. Zavell are proud to offer CoolSculpting® at their Toledo plastic surgery center.

Patients are evaluated by one of our board certified plastic surgeons. We can identify if the patient is an ideal candidate for CoolSculpting® during the consultation. Occasionally the patient is not an ideal candidate for CoolSculpting® and may be a better candidate for a surgical body contouring procedure.


CoolSculpting® is a safe procedure. While it becomes widely suggested as an alternative to liposuction, CoolSculpting®, like liposuction, is not a weight loss method for people who suffer from obesity. CoolSculpting® is more appropriate for people who are at a healthy weight, but wish to rid themselves of unsightly, localized fatty areas on the body.

On average, the procedure results in a 20 percent fat reduction on the targeted area. By using CoolSculpting®, patients are often able to see results as early as 21 days after the treatment. Patients working toward a more drastic result can expect to see the desired end result within 3 to 4 months. On a global scale, more than 7,000 patients have used CoolSculpting® to help lose fat.


How does CoolSculpting® work?

CoolSculpting® uses a cooling technology to target the fat cells in a specific area of the body. This selective procedure results in permanent reduction of the fat. During this painless procedure, an applicator directs cooling temperatures around the freezing point to the location of the body fat. Underlying fat is targeted in this procedure, leaving the surface of the skin and tissues unaffected. The fat cells, when exposed to the cooling temperatures, begin to shrink and then disappear in a process known as “apoptosis.” The cells are naturally diminished, resulting in fat loss.

Best of all, CoolSculpting® is painless, though patients experience the suction feeling of the applicator. CoolSculpting® is non-invasive and allows for immediate recovery, which means you can walk home after the treatment.
