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.
"Bridget and Amanda made a super weird and uncomfortable procedure quite easy! I was really nervous, but their calming manner and conversation relaxed me. The Geneveve treatment was completely painless and there was no down time. My significant other thoroughly enjoys the results as well."- K.M. / Yellowpages / Jun 26, 2017
"Wow, is what sums up my experience and results with Dr. Armando Soto. I went into his office looking to have a breast augmentation. After doing some research and visiting other doctors, I decided to go with Dr. Soto, which was the best decision ever! Dr. Soto was honest and made me feel comfortable from the start to post surgery. I asked for natural looking breasts and Dr. Soto exceeded my expectations. I was confident before but now I am even more confident and feel sexier. I cannot thank Dr. Soto enough for his great work! I would definitely recommend Dr. Soto to anyone."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Nov 18, 2017
"I have to say this is the most amazing and pleasurable experience! From my first call to the office and always speaking with the kindest and the sweetest front office personnel, to always having an enjoyable visit. Dr. Soto's entire staff are incredible, and the nurses are amazing. Then there is Dr. Soto. He was so professional, kind, empathetic, and personal. He and his staff did not treat me like a patient. I was treated like family. As far as my procedure went, it came out amazing. Pure perfection is what you get from Dr. Soto. I always schedule the appointments I needed, of the time I needed. They are always there for you to reach out to. I recommend Dr. Soto to everyone. If you go anywhere else, you gave up the best."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Nov 17, 2017
"Bridget is the most amazing person! I love coming to her for my botox. I also have my mother come with me. She is the absolute best in Orlando! I love her bedside manner. She always remembers what is going on in my life and it's amazing because I only see her once every few months. She is so kind and sweet to come and see and I would recommend her to any one! Love her!"- Anonymous / RateMDs / Nov 16, 2017
"Doing my research, I found Dr. Armando's portfolio to align specifically what I wanted to see in my future butt lift. Everyone was sweet, knowledgable, and patient before and after surgery. Follow ups are great because he shows he wants the best for his patients and the results. I highly recommend Dr. Armando Soto, for any future cosmetic surgeries, to look and feel the best version of you!"- Anonymous / RateMDs / Nov 11, 2017
During the Procedure
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?
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?
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?
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.
