Fort Worth non-surgical fat reduction with CoolSculpting®
Do you regularly work out, eat healthy foods, and try to take great care of yourself, only to battle an area or two of stubborn fat that just will not go away? Diet- and exercise-resistant fatty bulges are a very common occurrence, and they can be particularly frustrating when you’re doing everything right.
If that sounds familiar, it may be time to consider CoolSculpting. This wildly popular treatment is the #1 non-invasive fat reduction procedure in the world—and it requires no surgery, needles, or downtime.
The Kirby Plastic Surgery Difference
CoolSculpting technology is evolving, and we are proud to offer the full suite of the newest generation of contoured CoolAdvantage applicators. The new applicators are more comfortable and treat a larger area in a shorter amount of time compared to the original applicators. If you are concerned about discomfort, ask for our new “Comfort Zone” treatment for full relaxation.
DualSculpting—twice as nice!
In many cases, patients desire treatment on both sides of the body to optimally spot-treat for symmetrical results. For paired or multiple areas, two machines, “DualSculpting,” can cut your appointment time in half, doubling the speed of your treatment. CoolSculpting treatment takes as little as 35 minutes per cycle with the newest applicators. We value your busy schedule and offer DualSculpting so you can have paired areas treated at the same time!
Body contouring options
Whether you are looking for CoolSculpting or liposuction, we’ve got you covered. With board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Emily Kirby, and her highly trained team at Kirby Plastic Surgery, you may choose to go in either direction. While liposuction is still considered the gold standard in body sculpting & contouring, we understand that busy schedules, medical issues and personal preferences may lead you to CoolSculpting instead of undergoing surgery. Because we offer both surgical and non-surgical options, we can help you choose which option best suits you.
How CoolSculpting works to spot-treat stubborn fat
CoolSculpting uses a proprietary technology called cryolipolysis to cool fat cells to the exact point of breakdown without harming surrounding tissues. This controlled cooling kills the targeted fat cells, which are then naturally broken down as waste and eliminated from the body.
Did you know…? Cryolipolysis was inspired by Harvard University research suggesting that children who frequently ate popsicles started developing dimples because the icy treat was “freezing” fat in the cheeks.
The safety and efficacy of CoolSculpting has been repeatedly proven by clinical studies. Many patients experience around 20% fat reduction in the treated areas, with results appearing over the span of around 90 days. Results are long-lasting with a continued healthy diet and exercise routine.

What to expect during your CoolSculpting treatment
On your day of treatment, you will be shown to a private room where you can settle in and get comfortable. We will mark your areas of concern so the CoolSculpting applicator can be positioned for optimal results. A cool gel pad will be placed on the treatment area under the CoolSculpting device.
When treatment begins, it’s normal to feel a brief, intense cold and firm tugging as the applicator suctions to your skin and the cooling begins. The level of pressure you feel with depend on the type of applicator used and area treated. The cold sensation typically lasts just a few minutes, at which point the area goes numb; most of our patients report that any initial discomfort is bearable and short-lived. During your session, you can read a book or catch up on work. Treatment can take as little as 35 minutes.
Many patients notice results after just one session, but depending on your individual concerns and goals, you will likely need a few additional CoolSculpting treatments to get the complete results you want. Many patients desire one to three treatments per area.
