CoolSculpting at our Roanoke, VA, practice provides nonsurgical fat reduction in a variety of common problem areas, such as the abdomen, flanks, hips, arms, double chin, and thighs. Women and men from Moneta, Smith Mountain Lake, Lexington, and surrounding cities whose healthy lifestyle includes a balanced diet and regular exercise are often disappointed when localized fat is resistant to their efforts. For many of these people, liposuction is an ideal treatment, especially for those who are near their goal weight but continue to struggle with stubborn pockets of fat. However, for people who do not need or want surgical intervention, CoolSculpting can be a good option for fat reduction. Unlike many other offices that offer CoolSculpting, Dr. Silberblatt, a board-certified plastic surgeon, is actively involved in every treatment.
CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical treatment, so most patients require minimal or no recovery time after treatment. Other key benefits include:
- Treatment is designed to be comfortable
- A single session often takes less than an hour
- No anesthesia, needles, or incisions are required
- Treatable areas include virtually all areas between the chin and knees
- Treatment can produce long-lasting fat reduction
How does CoolSculpting get rid of fat?
Through a process called cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling to “freeze” and destroy fatty tissues while leaving surrounding tissues unharmed. Once the fat cells break down, they are gradually flushed out of the body via natural processes. CoolSculpting results typically improve over time as the affected fat cells are progressively expelled from the body. However, actual results can vary.
The CoolSculpting Procedure
A single CoolSculpting treatment can be completed in just 35 minutes. However, depending on the size and number of treatment areas, a complete session can last from 1 to 3 hours. During treatment, a specialized applicator is affixed to the targeted area. Multiple applications may be needed for larger treatment areas or if multiple areas are being addressed. Many people relax and read or listen to music during treatment and often return to their daily routine immediately afterward.

What happens after CoolSculpting?
Following a CoolSculpting session, most patients immediately return to regular activities and do not require recovery or downtime. Some people may experience mild redness, bruising, or tenderness in the treated areas, but this normally subsides relatively quickly.
When do you see results from CoolSculpting?
You should notice gradual fat reduction in the targeted regions over the next 2 to 4 months, though individual patient experiences vary. Dr. Silberblatt generally recommends multiple CoolSculpting sessions to achieve the best results.
How long do CoolSculpting results last?
To achieve long-term results, it is important that you maintain a healthy lifestyle after treatment. The treated fat cells will not return, but fat cells remaining in the body after CoolSculpting can increase in size and cause weight gain. Dr. Silberblatt encourages patients to incorporate routine exercise and a healthy diet into their schedules.
