Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting involves no needles, surgery, or downtime. The Lubbock Plastic Surgery Institute is a Preferred Crystal Rewards Program member and happy to offer CoolSculpting - the coolest, most innovative, nonsurgical way to lose annoying bumps and bulges of stubborn fat. This revolutionary technology targets and cools unwanted fat cells in the selected area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat bulges. Patients often spend procedure time reading, working on their laptops, or simply relaxing. CoolSculpting is safe, approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and effective. Patients may start to see changes as quickly as 3 weeks after their treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after 1 – 3 months. The body is still flushing fat cells and will continue doing so for up to 4 – 6 months after treatment. Many patients are satisfied after 1 treatment, but during the consultation at their office in Lubbock or Midland, Dr. Schmid or Dr. Mooty will discuss a treatment plan for each patient’s specific needs. During CoolSculpting, the treated fat cells are eliminated, so as long as the patient maintains a healthy lifestyle, long-term results should remain stable.
We are proud to announce that the Lubbock Plastic Surgery Institute is now a Preferred Crystal Practice, a multi-tiered program recognizing the most successful practices within the elite network of Coolsculpting Centers. We are thrilled to give our patients great results with the latest in innovative technologies with Coolsculpting.

During a CoolSculpting procedure, the surgeon will place the cooling device on the area of the body where the fat is to be treated. The device pulls the fat pocket up between the cooling panels, where the freezing process will ensue. Patients will feel some pressure, but no pain. Most CoolSculpting treatments will only last about an hour. Following the procedure, patients will have some redness and tingling sensation on the areas treated, but this typically subsides quickly.
All CoolSculpting procedures are performed in an accredited surgical facility. No anesthesia or numbing medication is necessary, due to the procedure’s pain free process, and patients are immediately released to normal activity following treatment. Patients will begin to see results within several weeks. On average, it takes about two full months for the most dramatic results to take shape due to frozen fat cells naturally dissolving from the body over time. Patients should adhere to a healthy diet and eating plan to help maintain results.
Plan Your Procedure
Does It Truly Work?
Yes. This is a fat dissolving process that has been proven to eliminate fat from the body. 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.
Is CoolSculpting Safe?
Yes. This procedure was developed by Harvard scientists and approved by the FDA in 2010. At that time, the safety and efficacy of CoolSculpting were proven. It is a noninvasive, non-surgical procedure that does not require in any downtime.
Will the Fat Come Back?
Once the fat is frozen, dissolved and eliminated, these particular fat cells will be gone forever. However, new fat cells can form, so it is important to adhere to a healthy diet and fitness program to maximize the results long-term.
How Many Treatments?
This will be decided during your consultation. For many individuals, one full treatment is enough to obtain the desired results, although some patients may need more than one, depending on how much fat will be removed.
