Stubborn areas of fat can be tricky to shift with diet and exercise alone. Our advanced CoolSculpting treatment is a non-surgical fat removal method that gradually reduces the amount of fat permanently in the problem area to reveal a smoother and more contoured, sculptured body.

CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive and non surgical fat reduction treatment designed to tackle areas of unwanted excess fat that diet and exercise alone have been unable to reduce.

The CoolSculpting® technology uses controlled cooling targets and destroys only the fat cells being treated. It is a popular treatment that is ideal for patients looking for gradual fat removal, no surgery with no downtime. CoolSculpting is also known as fat freezing or Cryolipolysis.

7 million treatments worldwide and FDA approved for fat removal.

What to Expect

Our expert coolsculpting nurses will firstly assess your suitability for treatment before working on a personalised treatment plan to help you get the best from the fat freezing treatment to achieve your desired body goals.

  • The Procedure
  • Aftercare

CoolSculpting Treatment

  • Arriving at the clinic for your fat freezing treatment you will meet with one of our expert coolsculpting nurses again who will chat through what to expect from treatment.
  • The area/s being treated are then marked up and you will be given some time to get yourself comfy on the treatment bed. Once settled, a gel pad is placed over the area being treated to protect the skin.
  • The CoolSculpting applicator is then applied to the area which then uses a vacuum to pull the skin into the hollow of the applicator. The temperature in the applicator will then proceed to drop which will cause the area to become numb.
  • Whilst the treatment is taking place many patients choose to read a book, watch a TV series on their tablet or check their phone, our expert nurses will check on you to ensure you are comfortable at all times and assist you with anything you need.
  • Typical treatment time ranges from 35 – 60 minutes depending on the area/s being treated and after this time the applicator will be removed and the area will be specially massaged to help improve your final results.

After CoolSculpting Treatment

CoolSculpting results are gradual as it does take 4-6 months for all the targeted fat cells to be eliminated from the body. Over this time you should notice a reduction in excess fat with many patients experiencing a 20%-25% fat reduction overall. Patients may require more than one treatment to reach the desired outcome.

There is no downtime following a CoolSculpting treatment. Some patients may experience some soreness similar to muscle soreness after a workout but pain should not be experienced during the treatment.

  • What is coolsculpting fat removal and how does it work?

    CoolSculpting, also known as Fat Freezing or Crylipolypolis treatment is a non-invasive fat removal or reduction treatment. It works to freeze areas of unwanted fat to help re-contour your body.
    CoolSculpting works by freezing or crystallising the fat cells in the area being treated using cooling vacuums, surface plates or cups. The fat freezing technology selectively targets and destroys fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissue. Once the fat cells are treated, they are then destroyed and removed as your body processes the fat and removes these dead cells through a natural inflammatory clearing process. The procedure involves no surgery, no needles and there is minimal downtime following treatment.
    CoolSculpting originated many years ago when scientists at Harvard University observed that children who ate ice lollies develop dimples in their cheeks. Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD began to realise that that ice could selectively damage small pockets of fat cells and from that; the technique of fat freezing was developed. The idea that the cold could target fat cells without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue was the insight behind cryolipolysis, the science on which the CoolSculpting procedure is based on.
    More than 7 million CoolSculpting fat freeze treatment cycles have been performed worldwide.

    I work with Mr Riaz Agha, a Harley Street Plastic Consultant Surgeon at one of his private clinics. I am impressed with not only his standard and quality of work but also the care and kindness that he shows to all of his patients and team. I have worked with a huge variety of different consultants over the years but Mr Argha really stands out and I would highly recommend him to friends and family, and of course if ever I consider to have any procedures in the future.

    A really positive experience. Alex is a fantastic patient co-ordinator, so friendly and reassuring. After a few changes of plan due to Covid lockdown, I feel so grateful to have had the opportunity to have Dr Fattah performing my procedure. Extremely thorough and precise from the first consultation, I really trusted him. My main aim was to restore my figure after children/breastfeeding, with a really natural look that would work with my lifestyle, gym etc. Dr Fattah really “got” this and I trusted his judgement on size of implant and placement completely. I’m absolutely delighted with the result and the aftercare support has been great – surgery follow up and then annual check ups for reassurance. Thank you team, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend ?

    From the start to finish of my T-Lift procedure, I felt in good hands. The entire team at The Private Clinic were very caring and professional. Mr Falladah is an excellent surgeon, he explained everything clearly -before and during the procedure – and has a calm and reassuring manner. Because I was well-informed regarding what to expect after surgery, I was able to manage with minimal pain medication, but I’m glad I took a couple of days off work to recover. I’m really pleased with the results – a five star recommendation!

    I had preservation rhinoplasty with Dr Rochira in December 2019. I couldn’t be happier with my results. The results are very natural-looking and I feel so much more confident with my side profile. Dr Rochira is an amazing surgeon and I instantly felt comfortable. He knew exactly what I wanted and was very realistic with the results in my consultation. Thank you!

    Dr. Rochira performed a preservation rhinoplasty on me in December 2019. I trusted his suggestions for my nose and now, 9 months later, I couldn’t be happier with the results I’m seeing. I did not experience any bruising at all, only swelling around my eyes for the first couple of weeks — my nose itself took a few months to settle and I feel like it has really grown into the rest of my features. I entirely recommend this surgeon if you are looking for a natural result and an extremely pleasant experience.
