CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that utilizes a controlled cooling technology called cryolipolysis. Cryolipolisis targets only the fat cells and eliminates them without damaging the skin, the nerves or underlying muscles. One of the greatest benefits of CoolSculpting is that it requires no cutting, needles or downtime.
CoolSculpting was developed by a group of scientists at Harvard medical school. They found that fat can safely be removed through the surface of the skin by using controlled cooling or cryolipolis. The fat is crystallized and broken down over a period of two to four months, resulting in an average of 20 percent reduction of fat in the treated areas. Some patients decide to repeat the treatment at a later date to reduce the fat by an additional 20%. At Nuveau Plastic Surgery in Houston, TX guided by plastic surgeon Dr. Edward Lee, we offer advanced CoolSculpting to help you realize your plastic surgery goals. Schedule an appointment for more information about CoolSculpting and find out if this treatment is the right one for you.
"Dr. Lee is very personable! He is always very thoughtful and kind. If you are looking to get a procedure done, he will be able to kindly guide you through the process. Very seldom do you meet a doctor who is as considerate and relational as Dr. Lee!"- J.B. / Facebook / Mar 12, 2017
"10 days post “mommy makeover” and have to write a review because of how smooth the process was and how wonderful Dr. Lee is. Great bedside manner and superb skill level. You can tell he takes pride in his work and strives to get his patients the best possible outcome. Recovery process has been smooth thankfully. I was back to work 1 week post surgery. Also, Dr. Lee really listens to your concerns and works with you as a team. He even called me over Christmas to review a post op concern I had emailed him about. Eva in the office is also wonderful. Highest recommendations!"- D. / Google / Dec 28, 2019

"Did an amazing job! I went in for fillers while I friend went to get a mole removal. Not going to lie I did have a lot of swelling which freaked me out but after about a week there was no more swelling and after the first few weeks everything just balanced so beautifully. You can't tell that I've had anything done and my face looks a lot more symmetrical than it did before. My face looks more youthful and I love it! My friends mole removal went great for him. He says he can't even notice a scar! Ill definitely be a repeat customer!"- B.L. / Yelp / Jun 08, 2019
Although this procedure has shown to be fruitful with women and men of different age groups, those who will benefit the most from CoolSculpting:
- Maintain a healthy body weight
- Struggle with difficult areas of fat that do not respond to exercise and diet efforts
- Maintain a healthy lifestyle
- Do not desire or are not good candidates for more invasive procedures
- Have realistic expectations for the results of their procedure
The area to be treated will be drawn into the applicator that Dr. Lee determines is appropriate during the consultation. For the first few minutes, it will feel very cold, but this sensation soon dissipates. Treatment of a single area lasts for one hour. During this time, you may read, work on your laptop or simply relax while CoolSculpting works to eliminate the fat cells.
What to Expect
Since CoolSculpting is noninvasive, you can expect to return to normal activities following your procedure. Typically, patients can return to school or work immediately after your treatment. Symptoms of the treatment most often include stinging, redness, swelling, bruising, and discomfort of the treated site. These symptoms are short lived and usually fade in the days after your treatment. Expect to notice results in as soon as three weeks, while you will see the most obvious and dramatic results 1 – 3 months following your CoolSculpting procedure.

Nobody has the perfect physique and each of us has things we wish to change, like stubborn areas of fat that will not respond to exercise and a healthy diet.
