"29 Year Old 5'2 115 Lbs - 7 days ago had a bbl done with dr fernau in Pittsburgh pa. Dr fernau has done my breast and my rhinoplasty so I fully trusted him with my bbl! Without having my much fat on my body we knew it was going to be a challange! On surgery date I weighed 120 and 600cc per cheek was the goal. He ended up doing 980cc and my results are amazing! Couldn't be happier with his work!!"- A. / RealSelf / Apr 13, 2018

"Omgggggg!!!! I was SUPER hesitant about getting any sort of injections in my lip because of my previous experience done by another Physician. My first time having this done was not the greatest. I had a lot of discomfort, and my upper lip was turned up like a duck. THIS time there was no pain, no duck lip, they are fuller, they don’t look like TOO much. They look freaking PERFECT!!!!! I cant even contain my excitement. Dr. Fernau and his nurses are SO, SO sweet, they make you feel SO comfortable! I don’t think I could have had a better experience ! I wish I could give ya’ll a million stars!! ?The BEST!!!!"- A.D. / Facebook / Apr 07, 2018
Cryolipolysis is the science behind CoolSculpting, a noninvasive procedure that exposes fat cells to a method of controlled cooling, which essentially freezes the fat cells and causes them to die. The body then disposes these cells through a natural elimination process. During this procedure, the surrounding tissues and skin are unaffected. CoolSculpting is a laser liposuction procedure that has grown in popularity due to its outstanding results. It is best used for problem areas around the abdomen, and is a great, low-risk alternative to surgical liposuction. In most cases, the procedure is staged in multiple sessions with visible results showing within 2 to 4 months of treatment.
During the Procedure
During a CoolSculpting procedure, patients will 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.
The average patient cost for CoolSculpting will vary, but it generally starts at $1,500 and ranges up to $4,500. The number of treatments will depend on which part of the body needs sculpting, how thick the fat layer is and how large the size of the area is that is being treated.

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 tested and refined and 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 COOLSCULPTING?
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 THE FAT RETURN?
Once the treated fat cells are eliminated from the body, they cannot regenerate. This does not mean that new fat cells cannot form where the fat cells were already removed. Thus, it is important to adhere to an active lifestyle and healthy diet so the results achieved will be long-term.
