At Aesthetic Enhancements Plastic Surgery, board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Armando Soto understands that surgical liposuction is not for everyone; therefore, he provides CoolSculpting as a noninvasive alternative. During this procedure, a controlled cooling technique is used to specifically target and freeze fat cells. Once the cells are frozen, the body can then dispose of the dead cells through its natural elimination process. Candidates will personally meet with our team to discuss their aesthetic goals and develop their unique treatment plan, but commonly treatments are staged in multiple sessions. Results are visible within 3 weeks, but optimal results are evident within 2 – 3 months. This procedure is ideal for patients who wish to eliminate stubborn fat pockets in and around their abdomen, thighs, arms, and neck.
"My patient experience has been excellent! During my pre-op Dr Soto and his staff were extremely informative and patient when answering my questions and alleviating my concerns. Surgery was smooth and stress free as it could possibly be. Post-op care instructions were very thoughtful and comprehensive. It allowed me to have a very smooth recovery, especially in that critical first week. Results have been fantastic. I would not hesitate to make this decision again with Dr. Soto and would recommend his office to anyone considering this life changing procedure!"- A.O. / Yellowpages / May 13, 2017
"I had a breast lift and augmentation done with Dr. Soto in March 2017, and it was the best choice I ever made. I saw 4 plastic surgeons in the Orlando area before finally choosing Dr. Soto. I went into the process of originally wanting a breast lift with saline implants, but after much research I decided to go with silicone because of the way they look, feel, and the overall quality of the silicone implants. Of the other 4 plastic surgeons, 2 would not perform the lift on me because they felt it wasn't necessary, and the other doctor gave me a quote that was way more than I could afford. When I came to Dr. Soto's office it was a breath of fresh air. His staff is very sweet and attentive. I was seen right away after checking in. Dr. Soto listened to exactly what I wanted and after gave me his suggestions and what I was to expect with the surgery and my outcome. He was very realistic and upfront with me, which I really appreciated. After my consultation, I decided to go ahead with the surgery. I had a breast lift and breast augmentation done with silicone implants (275 cc for my left breast and 300 cc for my right since my left breast was larger). I wanted perkier breasts that fit my."- Anonymous / Vitals / May 08, 2017
"I just had a Mommy Makeover with a Breast Reduction and Lift. I was shocked at what I saw when I looked at myself in the mirror. My breasts looked better than when I was in high school and college. I have always had extremely large breasts and was unable to wear a bikini (never!) and suffered severe back and neck pain. I am only three weeks post op and I look amazing and feel amazing! Dr. Soto and his team are great! They are genuinely concerned about my recovery and monitor me often to ensure I am healing properly. I am so thankful to Dr. Soto and his staff for helping me look and feel better!"- Anonymous / Vitals / May 07, 2017

During the Procedure@headingTag>
During a CoolSculpting procedure, patients should not feel any pain, but will feel slight pressure in the areas being treated. The practitioner will place the cooling device on the area of the body where the fat is to be removed. The device pulls the fat pocket up between the cooling panels, where the freezing process will ensue. Treatment will last about an hour, depending on the size of the area being treated. Following the procedure, patients can resume their normal day. They may experience some redness and tingling on the treated area, but this will subside quickly.
Plan Your Procedure
- Procedure Recovery Location
Yes. Cryolipolysis has years of extensive research and studies behind it, performed by highly skilled experts in dermatology and cosmetic surgery. CoolSculpting is a patented technology that has been tested, refined, and is now available worldwide. Studies show that with one treatment, patients experienced a 20% reduction in fat after two months and a 25% reduction in fat after 6 months.
How Safe Is It?@headingTag>
CoolSculpting works by applying a controlled temperature, targeting fat cells in selected areas for treatment. As it is noninvasive and applied only on the skin’s surface, there is no need for a recovery period, except for some redness that can last from as little as a few minutes up to a few hours. There may also be some swelling that may last for a week. Basically, fat cells are ‘frozen to death’ and the fat is broken down by the body and released in its natural process.
CAn I regain the fat cells?@headingTag>
Once the treated fat cells are eliminated from the body, they cannot regenerate. However, the remaining fat cells can become larger and increase the size of the body. Thus, it is important to adhere to an active lifestyle and healthy diet so the results achieved will be long-term.
Number of Treatments?@headingTag>
This depends. Multiple treatments may be recommended for those who have thicker layers of fat in the target areas. Depending on the patient’s aesthetic goals, the doctor may recommend one full treatment up to a number of treatments spanning a few months.
