Reduce stubborn fat pockets without surgery
CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared, non-surgical procedure to help you lose unwanted fat. We use a special machine to freeze your fatty tissue, and your body naturally metabolizes the fat. You can finally lose your stubborn fat—no surgery, no incisions, and no downtime. And best of all, no more muffin top! We have been using CoolSculpting at Berks Plastic Surgery for nearly 5 years, and our patients have by and large been very satisfied with their results—take a look at our CoolSculpting before & after photos.
NEW at Berks Plastic Surgery: DualSculpting with CoolAdvantage
What’s twice as great as spot-reducing fat without surgery? Reducing in more than one spot! Regular CoolSculpting only treats one area at a time—you’d have to return for another session to address each additional area. Our solution? We doubled up on CoolSculpting machines to offer DualSculpting!
With DualSculpting, we can do an even better job reducing unwanted fat. Treating both sides of the body simultaneously requires half the treatment time plus helps achieve more even results for patients wishing to reduce fat on the hips, upper arms, or thighs. If you’d like to treat two different areas altogether, such as a “double chin” and your lower belly, we can now address both areas at once, saving you time and helping you enjoy a slimmer profile sooner.
And with our new CoolAdvantage system, you can enjoy quicker, more even results with just a 30 minute treatment!

How does CoolSculpting reduce fat?
CoolSculpting is a 100% surgery-free way to reduce annoying and ugly bulges that won’t budge with diet or exercise. It works by isolating and literally freezing fat cells to death. Over the weeks following treatment, the affected fat cells leave the body as waste, leaving your “problem area” slimmer, leaner, and less of a problem. CoolSculpting can be used safely and effectively on many areas, including:
- Hips & flanks
- Inner or outer thighs
- Upper Arms
- Under the chin (using the CoolMini)
- Bra rolls
- Under the buttock (“banana roll”)
- Distal thigh (area around knees)
- Arm pit bulge
What makes CoolSculpting so incredibly cool is that it leaves all your other tissues—skin and muscle—healthy and untouched. Because there are no incisions or needles, you will not have any scars to hide. You can get back to your normal routine right away, and save vacation days for vacation.
What does CoolSculpting feel like?
Expect some pressure along with a cold sensation while the CoolSculpting machine targets and freezes your unwanted fat. Most patients spend their half hour of fat loss reading, checking in on their laptop, or just relaxing. If you are having Dual Sculpting, we will place one applicator on each side of the body or other areas as you specify. Everyone is different, but most patients experience some temporary redness and sensations such as tingling or numbness for a few days after their CoolSculpting treatment.

When will I see results?
It takes a little time for your body to eliminate the fat cells destroyed by CoolSculpting. Improvements are usually noticeable after a few weeks, with final results in place in about 3 months. This is a key advantage of Dual Sculpting—patients who want to reduce multiple areas can avoid any delay in results that may occur with spreading treatment out over several appointments.
Are the results going to last?
As long as you keep up a healthy lifestyle, your CoolSculpting results should last through the long term. Since the number of fat cells has been reduced, you won’t store excess fat in such a concentrated area anymore. You’ll likely find that, with the stubborn fat finally removed, you are more motivated than ever to eat right and exercise to maintain your leaner figure.
Not a weight loss technique
CoolSculpting is not a weight loss technique. We’re pleased with the results our patients are getting and think CoolSculpting is perfect for slimming down a stubborn area on your body. But you shouldn’t think of this procedure as a way to lose weight; instead, think of it as a way to gain a slimmer profile in the areas treated. When compared to other treatments we offer, the finished results are less dramatic than liposuction but better than other non-surgical treatments. Having no downtime is a strong benefit!
