Incredible Results without Surgery

Painless Procedure

Unlike liposuction and other fat loss treatments, CoolSculpting is performed without a single needle, laser, or incision. In addition to being painless, this non-surgical approach eliminates the risk of scarring and other post-surgical complications.

No Downtime or Recovery

A single session of treatment can generally be completed within one hour. Unlike surgical fat reduction procedures like liposuction, there is zero downtime and you can return to your normal routine immediately afterward.

Long-Lasting Results

CoolSculpting freezes fat cells in common "problem areas" and causes them to be naturally expelled from the body. As long as you stick to a healthy diet and regular exercise, you can maintain the results of your procedure indefinitely.

I went to Columbus Plastic Surgery to have coolsculpting  done. Danielle was AMAZING! She was super friendly and very personable. She answered all of my questions and she never once made me feel like I asked a stupid question. She was very upfront about what to expect during the procedure, immediately after the procedure, and what I could expect in the next few weeks to few months. My friend came with me to my appointment and had several questions for Dannielle as well. Dannielle answered all of her questions with a smile. I look forward to using them again in the future.

Here's what happens during a typical treatment...

How It Works

Rather than relying on removal by scalpel or laser, the CoolSculpting system uses cryolipolysis, a method of applying controlled cooling to concentrations of excess fat. The device targets fat deposits and crystallizes the cells, causing them to die. In the weeks following treatment, your body naturally processes these cells and eliminates them from your body. Because fat freezes at higher temperatures than other types of cells within the body, the freezing technique reduces the number of fat cells in the treatment area by about 20 to 25 percent. It’s important to remember that this is not a weight loss treatment; it’s a way to accentuate your figure when a small amount of unresponsive fat stands between you and your goals.

CoolSculpting Used by Millions to Achieve Results

Our team in Columbus, GA, can target and freeze the fat in several areas...

Is fat freezing right for you?

Determining Your Candidacy

With this technology, our Columbus, GA, team can target fat cells that have proven resistant to diet and exercise. This unique treatment offers a non-invasive alternative to liposuction and other forms of traditional fat reduction. Good candidates are: 

Near Their Ideal Weight

CoolSculpting is not a replacement for traditional methods of weight loss. It can only help you accentuate your figure. Good candidates are typically at or near their ideal weight but still have unwanted fat deposits in concentrated areas.

Struggling with Stubborn Fat

Typically, these fat deposits create noticeable bulges that detract from your figure. CoolSculpting targets these areas for a smoother, more toned silhouette. If you've tried diet and exercise but haven't been able to reduce stubborn fat in certain areas, this treatment may be right for you.

In Good Health

During your initial consultation at our Columbus, GA, practiceDr. Jain or Dr. Anderson will screen you for medical conditions like cryoglobulinemia (abnormal proteins that thicken in cold temperatures) to ensure that you can safely undergo this cosmetic procedure.

Stretched Skin?  Remember: CoolSculpting Only Targets Fat Cells

If you have stretched or sagging skin that makes you self-conscious, CoolSculpting may not be the best option for you. Although it can safely and successfully remove fat, it is not designed to tighten or trim excess skin. If stretched or sagging skin is among your concerns, you might be a better candidate for non-surgical laser skin tightening. But if you have large amounts of excess skin, Dr. Jain or Dr. Anderson may recommend body contouring surgery.

Is CoolSculpting safe?

An FDA-Approved Treatment

CoolSculpting was developed by ZELTIQ Aesthetics, Inc. and is the only fat reduction using cryolipolysis which is approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration.

Although side effects such as redness, tingling, or swelling can occur during the procedure, we thoroughly screen every candidate to reduce the risk of these reactions.

What to Expect during Treatment

A single session of treatment can generally be completed within one hour.
A single session of treatment can generally be completed within one hour.


Before recommending this option, a member of our team will sit down with you to discuss your goals, concerns, and budget. Based on this discussion and a physical exam, we can determine whether this treatment can realistically achieve your cosmetic goals. If you decide to proceed, we can create a personalized plan to address your areas of concern. 


The length of your treatment session will depend on how many areas you wish to address and which parts of your body are being treated. A typical procedure at our office takes about 35 to 60 minutes. During your procedure, we will place a gel pad and applicator over the treatment area and then you will sit back and relax until your session is complete.


During their session, patients feel an intense cold at first which quickly dissipates as the area becomes numb. In some cases, you may have the sensation of pulling as suction is applied. Often, our patients read, catch up on work, or take a nap during their CoolSculpting procedure. Most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after their appointments.


The full effects of your sessions may take up to six months to become apparent. However, you will likely start to see changes as soon as three weeks. Typically, the most dramatic results appear after the first two months. Some patients desire additional sessions or other cosmetic enhancements to accentuate their effects.

I just got the best “pick me up” from Dr. JAIN on 1/24/2019. He is just the best ever. I’ve gone to him for 8+ years. I don’t even live in Columbus but he is worth any ride. I’d trust no one else but him. His staff is wonderful and friendly...At almost 68, I know which doctors to trust. He deserves 12 stars!!!

Frequently Asked Questions About Coolsculpting

What are the common side effects of Coolsculpting? 

Coolsculpting's unique laser-free cryolipolysis technique of removing unwanted fat has few side effects. The most common ones include temporary redness, swelling, blanching, or bruising at the treatment site. The area may also feel firm. You may also experience some tenderness, aching, or itching, which typically lasts for about two weeks after treatment.

Is Coolsculpting a weight loss treatment?

No. Coolsculpting is intended for fat loss. While weight loss and fat loss sound a lot alike, there is a difference. Fat loss with Coolsculpting allows you to sculpt your contours by eliminating unresponsive fat pockets. Ideal candidates are within 30 pounds of their goal weight and live a healthy lifestyle. If you have a significant amount of weight to lose, you should first consult your general doctor, who can provide guidance and recommend nutritionists and other professionals who can help you reach your goals. Once you have reached your goal weight, we can provide Coolsculpting (or liposuction, depending on your needs) to eliminate any unresponsive fat and refine your contours.

How well does Coolsculpting work on abdominal fat?

Coolsculpting targets subcutaneous fat, the soft fat that lies just below the skin and is often found in the abdomen. If you pinch the fat in your stomach region and it is soft and pliable, this is the subcutaneous fat the Coolsculpting can target and eliminate. However, if the fat in your abdomen makes your stomach feel hard and tight then you have visceral fat. This is a heavier, waxier fat that collects around the organs in the abdominal cavity. To reduce this fat you will need to make changes in your diet and exercise habits.
