CoolSculpting Elite is a groundbreaking advancement in non-surgical body contouring that eliminates unflattering and bulky fat without surgery. It’s approved by the FDA and was developed by scientists at Harvard University and Massachusetts General Hospital. In addition to no incisions, downtime or associated risks, CoolSculpting Elite is different than other methods like laser and radiofrequency in that it destroys the fat cells permanently. Below you’ll find information about CoolSculpting Elite, including how it’s done, the results you can expect and what you need to do to get started with one of our CoolSculpting Elite specialists in San Diego.

How CoolSculpting Elite Works

A little known fact is that fat cells will freeze at higher temperatures than other surrounding tissues. We take advantage of that by pin-point targeting of fat cells and cooling them to temperatures that will initiate their natural death. There’s no damage to your skin, nerves or any surrounding tissue because the fat cells actually crystallize at a faster rate than other cells. Once the fat cells that have been targeted die, they’ll be metabolized naturally by your body.

What You Can Expect During Your CoolSculpting Elite Experience

During your initial visit at Sadrian Plastic Surgery Laser & Skin Care Institute in San Diego, you’ll meet one-on-one with of our San Diego CoolSculpting Elite clinicians. Together, an effective treatment plan will be put in place for reshaping your body.

Because everyone’s body is different, we’ll work with you in developing the best treatment plan tailored for your needs. The process itself typically takes about an hour per area, and multiple areas can sometimes be treated simultaneously. Once the treatment begins, a gel pad and applicator will be applied to the targeted area. You may experience some tugging or pulling as the applicator draws the fatty tissue closer in so that it can be isolated. As the CoolSculpting Elite name suggests, you may feel an intense cool sensation for about 5-10 minutes but the feeling will subside after the targeted area is numbed. As you sit back and relax – and even take a nap or read – the applicator will supply the cooling temperature to the targeted fat cells. Because CoolSculpting Elite is non-surgical, you should be able to return to your normal activities immediately.

Many of our San Diego CoolSculpting Elite patients will see tangible results as quickly as 3 weeks after their treatment, but the most dramatic results are typically seen about 2 months after the procedure. The dead fat cells will continue to be absorbed by your body for up to 4-6 months after the procedure.


Because CoolSculpting Elite should not be looked at as a weight-loss solution, ideal candidates for CoolSculpting Elite have noticeable bulges in certain areas that they would like to eliminate. If you would like to learn more about the potential benefits for you, contact our CoolSculpting Elite specialists at Sadrian Plastic Surgery in La Jolla today to schedule an initial consultation. We’ll give you all the information you need to make an informed decision.
