Diet and Exercise Not Reducing Stubborn Areas of Fat? Try CoolSculpting® Elite

By: Dr. James D. Fontaine


Almost everyone has a few areas on their body they’d like to slim down or shape up, but diet and exercise don’t always do the trick. Even with a healthy lifestyle and dedicated fitness regimen, it can be exceedingly challenging to get rid of certain pockets of fat, whether due to genetics, age, or another factor. While cosmetic surgery is certainly effective for fat removal, many men and women prefer a more convenient and affordable fat reduction treatment that does not require time away from work and household responsibilities. To help these patients achieve their goals and feel more confident about their figures, board-certified physician Dr. James D. Fontaine and the team at Fontaine MD Aesthetics and Anti-Aging Medicine in San Diego, CA are proud to offer the highly advanced and noninvasive CoolSculpting Elite fat reduction system.

How can I get rid of fat without liposuction?

Individuals seeking an alternative to liposuction that offers minimal downtime and long-lasting results may be excited to learn about nonsurgical fat reduction with CoolSculpting Elite. This state-of-the-art technology offers even more benefits than the original CoolSculpting system, including faster treatment times, wider coverage, and the ability to treat up to two areas simultaneously. CoolSculpting Elite removes diet- and exercise-resistant fat cells through the process of cryolipolysis, commonly referred to as “fat freezing.” During treatment, adipose (fatty) areas are cooled to a precise temperature, at which point the fat cells die. Over the course of several weeks or months, the body naturally disposes of these fat cells, leaving patients with a slimmer, more desirable figure.

Where can CoolSculpting Elite be used?

CoolSculpting Elite offers patients the unique opportunity to reduce bulging pockets of fat from head to toe, with some of the most popular treatment areas being:

  • Double chin
  • Upper arms
  • Upper back
  • Bra roll (bra line back fat)
  • Abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Under the buttocks (banana roll)

Again, CoolSculpting Elite allows patients to treat up to two areas at once, meaning you can address your problem areas in half the time other treatments may take.

Who is a good candidate for CoolSculpting Elite?

Ideal candidates for CoolSculpting Elite nonsurgical fat reduction should be:

  • Near their goal weight
  • Frustrated with stubborn areas of fat that have not responded to diet and exercise
  • Committed to maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine after treatment
  • Desire a more convenient alternative to liposuction
  • Hoping for a long-term reduction of fat cells by up to 20 – 25%
  • In good overall health

Are the results of CoolSculpting permanent?

Fat cells treated with CoolSculpting Elite will be expelled from the body, but patients must strive to maintain a stable weight in order to preserve their newly slimmed physique. Gaining weight after CoolSculpting can reverse the results of treatment, but with a stable weight, the results of CoolSculpting Elite can last for many, many years to come.
