Get Rid of Stubborn Fat

Getting rid of stubborn fat can be frustrating, especially if you go to the gym regularly and eat a healthy diet. While it can be nearly impossible for most men to target some areas of excess fat with diet and exercise, there is a simple non-invasive aesthetic treatment that can help — CoolSculpting®.

Transformations Plastic Surgery is proud to offer CoolSculpting® for men at our Rockford, Illinois location. If you’d like more information about this or any of the other male-tailored services we offer at our practice, contact us today!

How does it Work?

Using the power of controlled cooling, CoolSculpting® helps destroy and remove excess fat cells from the body. Because fat cells have a higher freezing temperature than the surrounding tissues, the treatment area is left unharmed.

Following a CoolSculpting® session, patients may experience redness, swelling, numbness, tingling, stinging, or pain in the treatment area. Fortunately, these side effects typically resolve on their own within a few weeks of receiving treatment.

During treatment, cooling temperatures are delivered to the patient’s desired treatment area through a special applicator. This applicator is left in place for an hour on each treatment area. During this time, patients are encouraged to relax, read, watch Netflix, check their emails, or even take a nap. While some patients experience a small degree of discomfort during treatment, most are able to tolerate it with little difficulty.


Fat cells crystallize when they are frozen. The body then naturally eliminates these cells from the body over a period of about two months. Your body utilizes enzymes found in your immune system to assimilate and dissipate these fat cells, at which point they are gone for good.

If you newly gain weight some time down the road after your CoolSculpting treatment, the new fat cells can appear in parts of your body that were not treated. If exercise and diet have failed and you are seeking a new method to resolve unwanted fat deposits, CoolSculpting may be the final answer.
