What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is the art and science of cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis targets fat deposits with intense blasts of cold temperatures to essentially “freeze” them into stasis. The body naturally removes the frozen cells via the lymphatic system. CoolSculpting is an intuitive process that lowers the temperature in unwanted fat layers while maintaining warmth and circulation in the surrounding skin and muscles. This allows your best abdominal shape to emerge unharmed and unobstructed by bulky fat stores.
Custom CoolSculpting applicators cradle the belly, affixing to the skin like a vacuum nozzle. Dr. Abramson and his associates are experts in the facilitation of abdominal fat freezing. We use state of the art equipment that is safe to the touch, easy on the skin, and remarkably effective. Concentrated cold infiltrates layers of belly fat in the breezy span of approximately 45 minutes. In that time, excess tummy bulk is shocked into submission so your lymphatic system can do the rest.
After the fat cells are frozen, your body regards them as waste material. As with any waste, the lymphatic system flushes it from the body gradually, naturally, and comprehensively. In the matter of a few weeks, unwanted fat is expelled as your slimmer, trimmer self emerges.

Fat loss can be a frustrating process, but CoolSculpting is your ideal workout partner. In Dr. Abramson’s hands, the abdominal applicator becomes a magic wand. He waves it painlessly over your “problem areas” to deliver amazing results with no downtime or anesthesia.

Personal Consultation in New York and New Jersey
Every great improvement begins with a simple conversation. We appreciate the opportunity to communicate with our neighbors through our blog, and we always welcome your feedback! Our posts are designed to enlighten and inform, so take a look and feel free to drum up some questions.
Dr. Abramson is an accomplished physician, but he is also a great listener. Be prepared to share your medical history during your consultation and he can help shape your aesthetic future.
CoolSculpting is just one of the tools in Dr. Abramson’s cosmetic toolkit. If the procedure is ideal for your tummy, he is happy to provide the sleek results you seek. On the other hand, if Dr. Abramson believes that a different approach will be more beneficial for your midsection contouring, he will explain his thought process as part of your comprehensive consultation.
Preparation and Procedure
Due to the non-invasive nature of the CoolSculpting process, preparation is quite minimal. In fact, you may be ready to begin the procedure immediately following your consultation.
Once the CoolSculpting process begins, we want you to feel comfortable. Our facilities are a beacon of privacy and professionalism. You are welcome to surf the ‘net, read a book, or simply relax as the CoolSculpting device works its magic on your belly.
As the cryolipolysis technology targets your unwanted fat, you may feel a slight numbing sensation. This is natural and harmless. A brief chill envelops your tummy fat, keeping your skin and muscles perfectly unfazed. Please inform your clinician of any discomfort and they can pause the CoolSculpting process immediately.
You may receive a gentle massage to break up the frozen fat cells along your abdomen. This signals to your body that it can now eliminate the unnecessary bulk as it would dispose of any waste material. In less than an hour, the CoolSculpting procedure is over and you are free to resume your normal routine.
Recovery and Results
A typical CoolSculpting session is pain-free, but you may notice some superficial suction marks on the site(s) where the applicator nuzzles against your skin. Any minor swelling or redness should subside in about two or three hours.
The results of your CoolSculpting session may appear as quickly as two weeks following your treatment. Results vary, but the full improvements of your CoolSculpting procedure should emerge within 2-3 months, at the latest. Your body requires time to adjust to its new contours. Great things come to those who wait!
CoolSculpting is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in America. Over 376,000 sessions are performed in the United States every year. This number grew 6% between the years 2017 and 2018.
One reason why CoolSculpting is so in demand is how it transforms the body by eliminating stubborn fat. Shirts will fit more comfortably as your silhouette conforms to the contours you always wanted.
But don’t take our word for it; read these rave reviews from our past patients. We are honored by their praise and eager to deliver the same top-notch service to you!

Is CoolSculpting painful?

A trained clinician will monitor your session closely to ensure your safety throughout the procedure.
How much does CoolSculpting cost in New York?
The price of a CoolSculpting strategy depends on how many sessions are required to deliver the results you demand. Dr. Abramson offers financing options to keep costs down. To discuss payment options, please contact our New York City office at (212) 774-1828 or our New Jersey team at (201) 731-3134.
How much fat can I lose from CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is not intended as a weight loss solution. Instead, it is a technique to remove fat from specific areas of the body. Patients may lose up to 25% of a specific fat deposit in a given CoolSculpting session. To maximize results, consider scheduling multiple treatments during your comprehensive consultation.
How are CoolSculpting and liposuction different?
Liposuction targets and softens unwanted fat stores by bathing them with tumescent liquid and vacuuming them gently from the body. The liposuction procedure requires small incisions to access the fat cells that are being removed from a given area. CoolSculpting, however, requires no incisions, anesthesia, or downtime. To assess which approach works best for your unique cosmetic needs, ask Dr. Abramson. He provides virtual consultations to serve as the copilot on your aesthetic journey.
