Dr. Rubinstein, a dual board certified facial plastic surgeon & laser specialist has teamed up with the finest clinicians offering the full spectrum of plastic surgery for both face and body, an in office certified surgical suite, and full service medical spa. The center, which is both the most reviewed and highest rated plastic surgery practice in the Hudson Valley, has also been one of the top CoolSculpting sites in the region.
At some point during their lives, almost all women will notice the development of cellulite and fatty tissue. Unfortunately, diet and exercise do little to remove these lumpy, unsightly areas. Liposuction and other surgical procedures (like Smart Lipo) can provide excellent results for fat reduction. Not everyone, however, is ready for an expensive, invasive procedure with a lengthy recovery period. CoolSculpting is a new, noninvasive technique, designed to target and reduce areas of fatty tissue in just one hour, and with little downtime. The CoolSculpting procedure is a non-surgical alternative to cosmetic fat removal that freezes away excess adipose tissue. The FDA-approved procedure, with over 4 million procedures performed, was born from years of research, studying, and testing what is already scientifically known about the relationship between body fat and cold temperatures.
How does cool sculpting work?
CoolSculpting can remove fatty tissue along the:
- Abdomen (Muffin Top)
- Upper back (bra rolls)
- Lower back
- Flanks (love handles)
- Male Breasts
- Female Breasts
CoolSculpting uses Cryolipolysis, a remarkable new technique that employs cold temperatures to destroy deep layers of fat cells. The extreme chill will cause the fat cells to freeze and slowly perish. The body then naturally metabolizes the fatty tissue, eliminating it from the body. Five different size applicators are available, allowing each CoolSculpting treatment to precisely address the individual target area. Healthy skin and tissue around the fat cells will remain unaffected during treatment, making the CoolSculpting procedure extremely safe and effective.
Benefits of CoolSculpting:
The final results from a CoolSculpting procedure are not immediately noticeable. It will take between two and four months for the body to completely reabsorbed the excess fatty tissue. After about 16 weeks, the full results of a CoolSculpting treatment can be appreciated. At this time, if further improvements are desired, a repeat CoolSculpting procedure can be performed. Many patients will have multiple areas treated to transform their bodies all without any cutting. This is called “Treatment to Total Transformation.” The more areas that are treated the lower the cost per treatment.
The benefits of CoolSculpting are permanent. Other areas of fatty tissue may still develop, however. To maintain their results, patients should eat a healthy diet and incorporate a regular exercise routine.
The Ideal Candidate for CoolSculpting:
The CoolSculpting procedure can benefit anyone dealing with isolated areas of stubborn fatty deposits on the arms, legs, or body. Ideal patients will be in generally good health and understand the CoolSculpting treatment, as well as hold reasonable expectations for their results. CoolSculpting is safe for all ethnicities and skin types. Before scheduling a treatment, patients should set up an initial consultation with Dr. Rubinstein, and his clinical staff. At this time, it will be determined if the CoolSculpting technique can provide the desired benefits. New Vectra 3D Computer photography & analysis can be used to visualize projected results and can be used to compare actual final outcomes.
CoolSculpting for Women
Male and female bodies are structurally different, due in part to different hormone levels and the way each gender stores fat. Women’s bodies have a higher fat content than men’s and they may then notice a higher instance of fatty deposits. Women tend to accumulate fat around their lower abdomen, flanks (also referred to as “love handles”), hips, thighs, and buttocks, which can be exacerbated by pregnancy. Another area that may benefit from treatment is not commonly addressed. Patients may not often view their backside, but the area around the bra band may store extra adipose tissue. Even when wearing a well-fitting bra, clothing may not lay properly across this region. A patient’s arms and thighs can also be affected by spot deposits, especially if she is overweight.
CoolSculpting can effectively treat any of these problem areas through just a single fat-freezing session, though Dr. Rubinstein usually recommends a second treatment for the best results. Those who are best suited for CoolSculpting will have a body mass index (BMI) below 30; a BMI over 30 is considered obese by national standards.
The CoolSculpting Treatment:
CoolSculpting is performed in a comfortable, private comfortable treatment room at Dr. Rubinstein’s facility. Once the treatment area has been determined, the provider will place a CoolSculpting applicator on either side of the fatty tissue. Using light suction the tissue will then be pulled up between the two paddles. Once in place, these paddles will decrease to decrease in temperature. The chilled CoolSculpting applicators will stay in place for an hour.
The treatment does not require any anesthesia. While a deep chill and a mild pulling sensation will occur as the procedure starts, these will last for only a few minutes, as the tissue becomes numb. During the CoolSculpting procedure, patients are comfortable enough to read, surf the Internet, chat on the phone, and even rest. Many patients will opt to have other services during their CoolSculpting procedure such as Botox and filler injections.
Once the CoolSculpting procedure is finished, patients are able to return to their normal activities such as school or work. Exercise can be resumed immediately. The treatment area my have minor redness, bruising, and swelling. It is also not uncommon for the area to itch as it heals. These side effects from the CoolSculpting procedure will normally resolve quickly. When performed by an experienced provider, there is little risk for complications to occur after CoolSculpting. The treatment is completely safe for the surrounding, healthy tissue.

The number one reason in selecting a CoolSculpting provider is experience, skill, and honesty. Dr. Rubinstein has been a Top CoolSculpting practice for over 3 years in the Hudson Valley and most recently received this prestigious CoolSculpting Award.
Anyone who is frustrated with isolated areas of unsightly fatty tissue may make a great candidate for CoolSculpting with Dr. Rubinstein. The best patients will be in good health and fully understand the procedure.
Each area treated with CoolSculpting will take one hour. During this time, patients are comfortable enough to talk on the phone, read, or even nap.
During a Coolsculpting treatment, tissue in the treatment area is pulled up and placed between two paddles. The paddles, or applicators, are specially shaped and designed for different areas of the body. For example, there’s a Cool Mini applicator that is small enough for use on the under chin or neck area.
The paddles or applicators suction up the area you’re treated and apply cold to that area for about an hour. Although you’re likely to feel the cold at first, your skin quickly becomes numb. Many people find the process to be pretty comfortable and are able to relax and read or watch television during the procedure.
How much fat gets destroyed during a CoolSculpting treatment can vary from person to person. Usually, as much as 25 percent of the unwanted fat in an area can be eliminated by Coolsculpting. You can repeat treatments on the same area to improve your results.
The cold temperatures destroy the fat cells in the treated area. That doesn’t mean the cells instantly vanish, though. Instead, your body needs time to metabolize them and flush them out as waste. Depending on your body, it can take up to 16 months for all of the destroyed fat cells to be flushed away and for full results to become visible.
Although Coolsculpting works as a fat removal procedure and can be a non-surgical alternative to liposuction for some patients, it’s important to remember that it’s not a weight loss treatment. The procedure can help you lose, at most, just a few pounds. It’s for getting rid of small areas of unwanted fat, not pounds and pounds. Usually, the treatment is recommended as the “finishing touch” on a weight loss journey. After you’ve lost your baby weight from pregnancy or have successfully dropped 15 or 20 pounds, you can consider Coolsculpting to get rid of any areas of stubborn fat that diet and exercise seem unable to eliminate.
The fat that gets destroyed by Coolsculpting won’t come back. It’s removed from your body for good. But that doesn’t mean that you won’t ever put on weight or get bigger. Coolsculpting can be a permanent way to sculpt and shape your body, but it’s up to you to work to maintain your results. That means sticking to a healthy diet and exercise program and doing what you can to maintain your weight. Gaining weight after Coolsculpting can mean that the remaining fat cells in an area get bigger. The old cells are gone, but the enlarged ones are there to take their place.
Coolsculpting does sound like it’s come straight out of a science fiction novel, which can make you wonder if it’s really a safe procedure. Although there are some minor risks involved with the treatment, it is generally safe. There are fewer complications with Coolsculpting than there are with a surgical procedure, such as liposuction. One potential concern is that exposure to the cold temperatures can cause nerve damage, making the treated area feel numb for some time (sometimes months) after treatment. Such complications are very rare, however.
