I don’t give out 5 stars that often and especially to doctors.Had my fair share theses last two years having just recovered from throat cancer. Anyway , I found Dr.Fontaine to be very down to earth and friendly  which gave me a lot of confidence in him. I visited the facility to get the health check for anti aging and living forever pills . After a full review of my blood test it was decided more tests were needed. I really did not expect to hear from him much after that as my prognosis was not what I expected.To the contrary he followed up with e-mails of advice, another tele conference to go through more test and we have a plan in place to fight the normal aging issues of cholesterol, body fat etc while I deal with the extra tests I needed.The simple fact is that the blood test that Dr. Fontaine performed on me were more detailed than the ones your primary care physician does. Theses test found a problem that I probably would not have found for years and maybe by then it would have been too late. In short , probably saved my life. Wow

I can’t thank Dr.Fontaine enough! Menopause is certainly a subject that is not talked about enough it changes lives and for some it destroys them. I was at a point in my life during menopause where I was ready to die, that’s how bad I felt, only six weeks later after Dr Fontaines program based on MY blood, MY hormones! Not a generalized version for every woman! 🤬WTF is that? I feel better than I have since 2017 which is when I began menopause. Why menopause is not talked about and not covered by insurance for this kind of treatment is beyond my comprehension but I am grateful for people like Dr. Fontaine and his staff! Life changer. If you are on the fence, do it!!!

Okay so I have been doing Botox and fillers for years. I have never considered doing fillers for my under eyes as I was always nervous to. But naturally with age things have started to droop. Finally I decided to bite the bullet and go in for a consultation. I met nurse Sam and after a detailed consultation I felt enough confidence to jump forward with the treatment. Sam made the entire experience fun, comfortable and educational. Not to mention the results are EXCEPTIONAL. I was afraid of looking fake or overfilled which Sam ensured me that I would not and that I would only look refreshed. Everything she said from the start to finish of what I should expect was on point! Her skill level of technique was so advanced and she made the treatment easy. I couldn’t be happier with my results and my overall experience. Sam isn’t just a nurse, she becomes your friend who will make you look and feel your best. Can’t wait for her to treat me again.

Introducing: CoolSculpting Elite

CoolSculpting Elite is the newest and most advanced non-surgical body contouring treatment on the market. This groundbreaking technology provides faster results, quicker treatment times, and treats 18% more surface area on the body than the traditional CoolSculpting technology. The CoolSculpting Elite applicators allow for improved tissue contact, compared to the previous CoolSculpting system.

Dr. Fontaine is one of the first physicians in the San Diego and Chula Vista area to offer this treatment to his patients.

Good Candidates for CoolSculpting

The best candidates for CoolSculpting are men and women who have been trying to slim down and rid their bodies of excess stubborn fat through diet and exercise but have not seen the results they desire. It is also a useful alternative for those who desire fat reduction but have no interest in undergoing invasive surgery. We will perform an initial assessment of your body, discuss the results you would like to obtain, and look over your medical history to determine if CoolSculpting Elite is right for you. It is important to note that CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss procedure and is primarily designed to remove fat to improve body contours.

How Long Does CoolSculpting Elite Take to Perform?

The duration of the CoolSculpting treatment will depend on the areas of the body that need to be treated and how many areas you want to work on in a given treatment session. Depending on the body part, the treatment can be performed in as little as 35 minutes.

Unlike the original CoolSculpting method, CoolSculpting Elite can treat up to two areas simultaneously. This advancement allows you to get faster results with fewer treatment sessions.

After only a single treatment, you can expect to see a fat reduction of about 20 to 25%. However, results can vary based on the patient’s response to the treatment and the treatment area.

How Much Does CoolSculpting Elite Cost?

The cost of your CoolSculpting Elite fat reduction procedure will be determined by the specifics of your treatment. The number of treatment areas, the size of the treatment area(s), and the number of sessions needed to achieve your desired outcome will affect the overall price of CoolSculpting Elite.

About Us

Excess Fat

Most of us have an area of unwanted body fat. The best way to keep body fat to a minimum is with optimization of hormones, good nutrition, and exercise. However, even when you are doing your best in those areas, you may have some localized areas of unwanted body fat. We all know that you can’t “spot reduce” with exercise which results in fairly symmetric fat loss. At Fontaine MD, we use our body contouring devices to “spot reduce” fat and get you the body figure you desire. We use our noninvasive Coolsculpting to freeze fat in specific areas to contour your body. We also use our Alma Vshape Ultra to reduce fat and tighten the overlying skin with a combination of ultrasound and radiofrequency.

Bra Fat

“Bra fat” is a term used to describe a roll of fat in the back which is accentuated by the bra strap which causes the fat to bulge. This typically occurs below the bra strap but can be above the bra strap as well. Like most areas of localized fat, it is often difficult to get rid of “bra fat” with proper nutrition and exercise alone. At Fontaine MD, we use Coolsculpting to help you “spot reduce” this area of unwanted fat. Reducing “bra fat” will significantly improve the way your clothes fit in this troublesome area.

Banana Roll

“Banana roll” is a term used to describe a roll of fat that sits just below the butt cheek. This is an area of localized fat that is difficult to get rid of with proper nutrition and exercise alone. At Fontaine MD Aesthetics and Anti-Aging Medicine, we use Coolsculpting to help you “spot reduce” this area of unwanted fat.

Love Handles

“Love Handles” is frequently used to describe fat on the sides of your lower waist. These can be present in both men and women and affect the way your clothes fit. Like most areas of localized fat, it is often difficult to get rid of love handles with proper nutrition and exercise alone. At Fontaine MD Aesthetics and Anti-Aging Medicine, we use Coolsculpting to help you “spot reduce” this area of unwanted fat and produce a more desirable contour so your clothes fit well again.

Exercise Resistant Fat

Exercise resistant fat is a term used to describe areas of fat that persist despite good nutrition and exercise. In part due to your genetics, you may have one or more areas of localized fat that persist despite your best efforts with nutrition and exercise. This is because you cannot “spot reduce” fat. Many people achieve an appropriate weight but still have unwanted bulges. If they were to lose more fat, they may look too thin in some places, especially the face. This is where body contouring can help you. We use Coolsculpting or Vshape Ultra radiofrequency and ultrasound to “spot reduce” localized areas of fat to give you the body contour you desire.

FAQ About CoolSculpting

What is CoolSculpting?
Coolsculpting is a non-invasive body contouring procedure that freezes stubborn fat cells, allowing your body to eliminate them without the need for surgery. The device is applied to the skin and uses special technology to protect the skin from being damaged while the fat below the skin is cooled to the point of freezing. This causes apoptosis (cell death) and then the body absorbs the fat, but there is no increase in blood lipid levels. This body contouring treatment is designed to help people who are already leading a healthy lifestyle yet can’t seem to slim down, in particular, trouble spots. Coolsculpting is FDA-cleared for treating fat in the abdomen, flanks, inner and outer thighs, back, bra fat, upper arms, under the chin, as well as underneath the buttocks (“banana roll”).

Am I a good candidate for body contouring?
Do you have unwanted bulges or problem areas? If so, you may be an excellent candidate. Coolsculpting is ideal for those who haven’t been able to shed unwanted fat through healthy dietary changes and exercise. Many people choose coolsculpting to reshape their bodies as a less-invasive alternative to liposuction. Coolsculpting is appropriate for both men and women.

What does CoolSculpting feel like?
Coolsculpting is done in the office without anesthesia or downtime. During treatment, you’ll rest comfortably and awake after an applicator is applied to the treatment area. You may experience a pulling sensation due to the suctioning of the applicator, but it’s generally well tolerated. The area usually goes completely numb within 10 minutes. You can relax and watch videos, work on your laptop, read, or even doze off during your treatment if you wish. Afterward, the area is massaged for a few minutes, which may cause a tingling feeling. Most people can go straight back to their usual daily activities after treatment, meaning there is no needed downtime for recovery.

How long do results take?
After your treatment, your body naturally begins eliminating fat cells targeted by coolsculpting. Results may start to become apparent within three weeks, with the most significant results appearing after about two months. For up to six months, your body continues to flush out fat cells.

How long do results last?
Coolsculpting body contouring results are permanent. Once fat cells are frozen by the treatment, they die and are eliminated from the body and cannot return. You can still gain weight, however, so be sure to continue your healthy lifestyle habits. If you do gain weight, you will typically gain it spread throughout your body, not localized to the treatment area.

What areas can be treated with CoolSculpting?

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks (love handles)
  • Bra fat area
  • Thighs- inner and outer
  • Arms
  • Under the chin
  • Under the buttocks ("banana roll")
