How Does CoolSculpting Work Blog PhotoCoolSculpting is an exciting new cosmetic procedure performed by Austin Dr. Tjelmeland at his Meridian Plastic Surgery Center Office. With this outpatient procedure carried out in Dr. Tjemeland’s Austin office, fat cells are frozen and killed, then eliminated by your body’s own natural elimination process. The result is a permanent fat reduction in the targeted area – all without needles, anesthesia or surgery! And the best part is, you can resume your normal daily activities immediately after your treatment.

How is CoolSculpting Performed?

CoolSculpting is performed entirely without surgery. A gel pad and handheld applicator are placed on your problem areas, and the fat is frozen. After the fat freezes, it dies and is eliminated naturally. Over time, you’ll see your once stubborn fat areas transform into leaner, thinner body parts, giving you the confidence you’ve been wanting! While CoolSculpting is a cold procedure, it is generally described as painless, and most Austin patients prefer to nap, rest, surf on their phones or read during their CoolSculpting treatments.

How Effective is CoolSculpting?

For an outpatient procedure, CoolSculpting is a highly effective procedure. A single hour-long CoolSculpting treatment – which targets about the area the size of a hand – can reduce about to 22 to 25% of the targeted fat. With additional treatments of the same problem areas, you can eliminate up to 50% of your unwanted fat cells.
