Innovative CoolSculpting is a fat diminishing treatment designed to sculpt and mold your body by freezing away tough fat cells without resorting to more invasive procedures. The technique includes the use of regulated cooling (cryolipolysis) to freeze fat cells so they may be naturally expelled from your body to reveal a thinner physique. At Marisa Lawrence Plastic Surgery in Atlanta and Alpharetta, GA, founded and led by fellowship-trained and double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Marisa Lawrence, we offer state-of-the-art CoolSculpting to help you meet your aesthetic goals. Schedule a consultation to learn more about cryolipolysis with CoolSculpting and decide if this treatment is right for you.
"Dr. Lawrence truly has the skills of a surgeon but the touch of a woman. So knowledgeable and kind. I was particularly impressed by how well she listened. She was not in a rush like most doctors. She sat and listened to me. I felt respected. She's the best!"- L.B. / Yelp / Jun 14, 2019

"Best Decision I’ve Ever Made - I was 12 years old the first time I saw my facial profile in a picture. I gasped at my “beak” which I felt was much too large for my face. I was self-conscious about my dorsal hump and bulbous tip ever since. I’ve always angled my face a certain way to minimize my insecurity about my nose when talking to people in person, taking pictures, etc. It consumed my life. I had a single consultation with Dr.Lawrence and knew she was the surgeon for me. The entire staff is professional and friendly, which immediately put me at ease. Dr.Lawrence addressed correcting the parts of my nose I was insecure about to increase facial balance. She is a double board certified and fellowship trained surgeon, so I was confident in her skill and intuition. My operation was seamless, my recovery was shockingly easy, and Dr.Lawrence has been there every step of the way throughout my recovery. I am only 4 months post-op and I’m IN LOVE with the results of my rhinoplasty! I look balanced and so natural. I’m also wearing less makeup since my procedure. My only regret is not having the rhinoplasty sooner! It looks even better than I imagined. My confidence has been restored. I feel like ME for the first time in my adult life. I would recommend Dr.Lawrence to anyone considering plastic surgery. I am forever grateful!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Apr 26, 2019
"I had breast implant removal surgery (capsule removed) about a month ago and am very pleased with the results. Dct. Lawrence, office staff, and surgery location staff were all very kind, gentle, professional & detailed. A++"- C.U. / Facebook / Apr 26, 2019
While this treatment has proven successful with both women and men of different ages, those who will benefit the most from CoolSculpting:
- Are within 30 pounds of their goal weight
- Struggle with stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to exercise and diet efforts
- Don't want or are not good candidates for more invasive procedures
- Have realistic expectations for the outcome of their treatment
After your consultation with Dr. Lawrence to organize your CoolSculpting treatments, your procedure will be planned. During your procedure, a specialized gel pad and the CoolSculpting handpiece will be applied to the chosen area and controlled cooling will start. The cooling, delivered by the applicator, will begin to attack and paralyze the fat cells. You will likely feel coolness at the time of your treatment, but this does not typically cause great discomfort. As the CoolSculpting applicator uses suction to move the targeted fat cells into the predetermined treatment area, you will likely feel a small amount of tugging or pinching, but these are normal sensations.
What to Expect
Since CoolSculpting is noninvasive, you can expect to return to daily activities following your treatment. In most circumstances, you can return to work or school immediately following your treatment. Side effects of the procedure usually include bruising, stinging, redness, swelling, and discomfort of the treated site. These side effects are temporary and usually subside in the days following your procedure. Expect to notice results in as little as three weeks while you will see the most obvious and dramatic results 1 – 3 months after your CoolSculpting treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does CoolSculpting cost?
The expense of CoolSculpting varies based on the number of treatments recommended and the amount of fat that you wish to have removed. During your consultation, we will discuss your cosmetic goals to decipher the best course of treatment to achieve optimal results. We will also talk to you about your out-of-pocket costs.
How does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting works by applying a controlled temperature to destroy fat cells in selected body parts for treatment. Essentially, it freezes the fat cells until they die. The cells are broken down by the body and dispersed through natural functions.
Is CoolSculpting safe?
CoolSculpting is a minimally invasive, external treatment in which the device is applied to the skin’s surface. With this procedure, there's absolutely no need for a recovery period. You may experience some slight swelling and discoloration immediately after treatment, but this usually only lasts for around a week.
How many treatment sessions will I need?
The number of treatments required to attain your desired results will be decided during your initial consultation. For some patients, only one treatment is enough, but other patients may need more treatment sessions, depending on the amount of fat being addressed. The number of treatments is dependent on your aesthetic goals and if there are thicker layers of fat in target sections.
Do the fat cells grow back?
While the fat cells will not regenerate, new fat cells could form. In addition, weight gain will greatly influence your results. Thus, in order to maintain optimal results, it is necessary to adhere to a healthy diet and exercise routine.
