CoolSculpting Ideal Candidates
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
"I just happen to run across Dr. Lee on the internet searching for a Dr. to do a breast augmentation and possible tummy tuck. Had never even considered having this before and was very nervous. Went to one other consultation with another Dr. in the Houston area and found out he was actually only a dermatologist and wasn’t board certified in plastic surgery. I decided to get another quote and I am so glad that I did. Even though I lost $500 dollars that I had put down with t...he first Dr.. i let Dr. Lee know what it was that I was looking for and he let me know right away what I needed. He could have charged me more and even could have said that I needed more than what I did but he did not. He did not have to do a lift on me for my breast and he did not have to do lipo in me either and in both cases he could have told me I needed this and I would not have known the difference - but he didn’t. I was impressed with the fact that he has been doing this for only 7 years would be up to date on the procedures and possible new ways of doing these procedures rather than a dr that had been doing this for 20 plus years. Dr. Lee was worried due to the fact that I was a smoker. He almost seemed as if he may not even be interested in doing my surgery due to this fact. That was even impressive. He could have cared less and just seen dollar signs but he didn’t. I let him know I was super serious about this and would stop immediately if he would get me right in to do surgery so that I wouldn’t change my mind like I had in the past due to other obligations. He told me I would have to wait 6 weeks and the. He could do the surgery if I stopped smoking then. I promised. He kept his part of the bargain and so did I. I am proud to say that I have now had surgery almost 2 weeks ago and still haven’t smoked. Won’t go back. Thanks to Dr. Lee and Mrs. Eva I won’t go back to smoking. My surgery went flawlessly and the results are amazing. The Dr. knew exactly what I needed and did a perfect job. He eased all of my fears and it went way better than what I expected. Would recommend Dr. Lee to anyone wanting to enhance their looks. They offer a lot of different services and I would let them do any of them on me if I needed. Now Mrs Eva if the Drs right hand in my opinion. She was amazing and could have ignored me because god knows I ask her every question under the sun regarding my procedures and she handled me with nothing but respect. When she didn’t have too. I love her to pieces and she makes you feel so comfortable during the entire process."- M.S. / Facebook / Mar 22, 2020
"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

CoolSculpting Procedure Technique
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 with CoolSculpting®
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.
Plan Your 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. Due to technological advances, it is no longer necessary to decide between dealing with the undesired fat and undergoing liposuction. Nuveau Plastic Surgery is excited to offer Houston, TX women and men CoolSculpting procedures to minimize sections of difficult fat without invasive procedures for a smaller, tauter physique. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Edward Lee to find out if you qualify for CoolSculpting or whether a different treatment would better help you meet your aesthetic goals.
