For Dr. Aimee Nguyen's patients that are at a healthy, stable weight, CoolSculpting can permanently remove stubborn bulges of fat in the body. CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical FDA-cleared procedure that safely freezes fat cells in areas like the stomach and thighs. The frozen cells are processed naturally through the body and eliminated. Our patients will have the best results if they maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle, but future weight gain will be distributed evenly on the body.
"I don’t think I have thanked Dr. Nguyen enough for the level of care, attention and expertise she has showed before, during and after my surgery.I had a pelvic, prolapse and bladder surgery six weeks ago and I, as had heard from many, was expecting some post-op pain or big discomfort, nothing! I went home and had the best recovery one would have dreamed of. Today, after six weeks I have to force myself to remember I had a big surgery. Thank you Dr. Nguyen!!!"- T.D. / Healthgrades / Dec 16, 2017
"Pick This Doctor - I like Dr. Nguyen a lot as a person and I could not be happier with the actual results. I’m so glad that I took the steps to make this happen. The recovery was fine. Of course it was rough but it’s short lived, worth it, and nothing you can’t get through."- T. / RealSelf / Jan 12, 2019
"Best surgical experience ever. They have become like family to me - Here's a brief background on myself before I dive into this review: I am a female who is finishing up her last year in college. I grew up unaware that my labia were longer than what is considered to be normal. I always just thought that every other woman I knew was also having the same everyday difficulties that I experienced (difficult to put tampons in, chaffing, bulging in swimsuits, etc)...."- S. / RealSelf / Jan 11, 2019
"Incredible Results - Labioplasty is a very private matter. I did not tella soul I was having this done. Well, not technically. I found a friend of mine (very close friend) had it done in another city. Nonetheless, this is not a topic of discussion. So, that’s why I’m writting this. I am not usuayone to write reviews, etc. But for Dr. Nguyen and her staff, absolutely !!! My experience was 10/10. And tha..."- M. / RealSelf / Jan 10, 2019
"Cutting Those Wings Was the Best $ Ever Spent! - I wish I would have done this sooner. I initally thought that any surgeon could proform this type of surgery, but after having it done I now realize it takes SKILLS! I'm so glad I had a woman Dr. who knows a womans body proforming this on me. The healing process and pain wasn't bad at all. I only took ibuprofen and iced for the swelling. I'm rarely ever adjusting my undies/jeans/tights anymore..."- W. / RealSelf / Jan 10, 2019
The areas of the body being treated will be carefully frozen to a controlled temperature for a set amount of time by the hand-held CoolSculpting device. Most patients feel intense cold and pressure at first, but then they are able to relax through the rest of the treatment. After the procedure, patients may experience redness, swelling, bruising, and other temporary side effects. It usually takes 2-3 weeks for the body to start eliminating the fat cells, but patients see clear, dramatic results around two months after the procedure.
CoolSculpting is priced based on the areas treated and how many sessions will be needed to achieve the patient’s goals. A treatment plan and pricing will be discussed during the initial consultation.

- Procedure Recovery Location
CoolSculpting is a procedure that works well for individuals who have noticeable bulges of fat in certain areas that have been resistant to diet and exercise. In addition, this patient usually prefers a nonsurgical approach for fat removal. If a patient has a larger area of fat, or requires more fat removal than what is normal for CoolSculpting, traditional liposuction may be recommended.
What Can I Expect?
Once the desired number of fat cells is frozen, the body naturally processes the fat and eliminates the fat cells. This is a permanent loss of fat cells, meaning they will not return. Patients typically start to see changes as quickly as 3-4 weeks after treatment, and will see the most dramatic results after several months. The body continues to still flush out fat cells for 4-6 months after treatment.
Is This Safe?
With over one million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, this fat removal procedure is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for nonsurgical fat reduction. The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the flank (love handles), abdomen, and thighs.
