CoolSculpting is the new cutting-edge, innovative fat reduction technique designed to sculpt and contour your body by freezing away stubborn fat cells without going under the knife. The technology includes the use of controlled cooling to essentially freeze and kill fat cells that can later be flushed naturally from the body to reveal a slimmer physique. At Elevate Medical Spa and Cosmetic Surgery in Dallas, TX, and under the careful control of board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thornwell Parker, we employ the use of this state-of-the-art procedure to help you meet your aesthetic goals.
"All the staff was very professional."- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Oct 12, 2017
"Dr Parker and his staff are amazing. Not only did he answer every question and concern I had, he listened and is was very down-to-earth. He is also helping me with locations where the cancer removal has disfigured my face. Skin cancer can be a little scary, but Dr Parker makes you feel very supported. The clinic is super clean, the staff is super nice and I would recommend him HIGHLY. A++"- M.H. / Healthgrades / Sep 24, 2021

Although this minimally invasive procedure has proven successful on both men and women of varying ages, those who are most likely to benefit from CoolSculpting:
- Are within 30 pounds of their goal weight
- Experience stubborn fat patches that do not respond to diet
- Live a healthy and active lifestyle
- Are not interested in or do not qualify for surgical procedures
- Have healthy expectations for the outcome of their treatment
After your consultation with Dr. Parker or a member of our team, your procedure appointment will be scheduled. During your appointment, a gel pad and the CoolSculpting applicator will be applied to the treatment area and controlled cooling will begin. The cooling, delivered through the applicator, will begin to target and freeze the fat cells. As you probably can guess, the treatment can be rather cold, but this typically does not cause great discomfort. As the applicator uses suction to pull the targeted fat into the treatment area, you may feel a slight tugging or pinching, but these are normal sensations.
What to Expect
Since the CoolSculpting procedure is entirely nonsurgical and minimally invasive, returning to daily activities following treatment is typical. In most cases, you can return to work or school immediately following your appointment. Side effects of the procedure may include redness, swelling, bruising, stinging, and tenderness of the treatment site. These side effects are usually temporary and subside in the hours and days following your procedure. You can expect to see results in as little as three weeks while you will see the most dramatic and obvious results 1 – 3 months after your CoolSculpting treatment.
