PPSD Charlotte, NC’s leading authorities on body contouring

While there are a variety of Coolsculpting providers popping up all over the country thanks to the technique’s growing popularity, only a board certified plastic surgeon can adequately advise you on the best approach to body contouring for your unique anatomy. Undergoing Coolsculpting at the hands of a skilled, fellowship-trained physician offers a level of safety that ensures your peace of mind as well as a successful, stunning outcome.

How can I get started?

CoolSculpting is currently offered at our Charlotte/Blakeney and Gastonia/New Hope Rd offices. Scheduling a consultation at PPSD is easy. We welcome clients from Charlotte, Gastonia, Shelby and Hickory, as well as those patients traveling from out of town. Your doctor will meet with you in the comfort and privacy of our beautiful office suites where he or she will review your medical history, explore photographs, and discuss your goals for improvement. Once your doctor is confident that Coolsculpting is right for your needs, you will receive a detailed treatment plan outlining what to expect at every stage of your procedure.

How does Coolsculpting work?

Coolsculpting relies on a fascinating process called cryolipolysis wherein stubborn, undesirable pockets of fat are gathered up between two computer-monitored panels and frozen to death. The beauty of cryolipolysis is that healthy surrounding cells remain intact, while the targeted fat cells are absorbed into the body to be eliminated as bio waste.

After coating your skin with a soothing gel, the doctor will apply the cryolipolysis panels. The Coolsculpting procedure is carefully monitored through computerized safety sensors to ensure that results are evenly distributed and that you remain comfortable at all times.

Most clients will feel a slight stinging sensation, comparable to a sunburn. This is no cause for alarm, and merely implies the procedure is working as intended. Patients may relax, watch movies, read, or work on the computer while undergoing Coolsculpting. Some even elect to take a much-needed and much-deserved nap!

After the procedure

While Charlotte, NC Coolsculpting clients may encounter redness, tenderness or soreness at the treatment sites, this is typically mild and will disappear within a week. There is no downtime with Coolsculpting, so you may return to work and regular activities the same day.

What kind of results can I expect?

Following your first Charlotte NC body contouring treatment, you will see a marked reduction of unsightly bulges and fat deposits, with results more apparent at around three weeks post-procedure. At 2-4 months, you will experience the most dramatic improvement, and these changes will remain permanent as long as you continue to adhere to a healthy diet and exercise regimen. If you are eager to enhance your outstanding results, Coolsculpting treatment can be repeated at your doctor’s discretion.
