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, 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 is very good at listening to you and has such a great bedside manner. With that being said… she and her staff are great at what they do. I have been going to the sandy springs office for over a year and I am always met with a friendly smile and attitude from the time I walk until the time I leave. I would recommend this doctor and staff to anyone reading this review."- M.Z. / Google / Mar 04, 2020
"Ice Your Bum After Cellfina! - I am only two days out from my procedure, but can already tell a big difference happening. I would definitely say to do it on a Friday afternoon and not have anywjere to go that night or next day because you will ooze blood and lidocaine (or whatever they use to numb you) for about 24 hrs. There isn't really pain, but more of a discomfort when I sit. Nothing a couple of Tylenol hasn't handled. One thing I can say to do is ICE ICE ICE! I came home and put two bags of frozen peas under my butt for 30 minutes every 4 hours the first night and my bruising is very minimal compared to the other pics I see here. Oozing stopped after first night as well. Will update in a few weeks!"- A. / RealSelf / Mar 02, 2020
"I highly recommend Dr. Lawerence and her staff! We love her and Angela as well!! I had my implants removed and I have never been happier with my results. The front office staff is very pleasant! Edward is super helpful in any way he can possibly be! He goes above and beyond! The surgery center also had a very pleasant helpful staff! If you’re on the fence look no further! I have had several cosmetic surgeries and have never had results or customer service that is close to comparable. Definitely worth the 3 1/2 hour drive!"- T.G. / Google / Feb 20, 2020

"Best Cosmetic Surgeon - For years I have been treating my neck hoping to tighten the sagging skin. I have had several consultations with different doctors, all of whom told me I was too young for surgery and to try an expensive tightening procedure, none of which seem to help. It was Dr. Lawrence who took one look and said "Neck Lift" and I knew that was what I needed too. I.m now 6 weeks out from my procedure and couldn't be happier. She is a true artist. My neck looks amazing and natural. Surgery is scary, and I can honestly say you are in good hands if you seek a procedure form Dr. Marisa Lawrence. Thanks so much Dr. Lawrence!!"- D. / RealSelf / Feb 18, 2020
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.
