CoolSculpting Elite Fat Removal in Shreveport

CoolSculpting Elite is a breakthrough FDA cleared non-­invasive procedure that uses cooling technology, a process known as cryolipolysis (or fat freezing), to noticeably eliminate fat without surgery. This revolutionary, non-surgical treatment reduces fat in common trouble areas that tend to be diet and exercise-­resistant.  While most patients start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after their treatment, numerous experience the most dramatic results after two months and some patients will still see results continuing for up to four to six months after treatment.

How Does CoolSculpting Elite Work?

Our Coolsculpting Specialist marking a patients stomach where they will be getting coolsculpting elite treatment

CoolSculpting Elite procedures are entirely non-invasive making them quick, easy, and virtually painless. The contouring treatment is done in-office and uses patented fat-freezing technology to effectively remove unwanted fat cells from the body. The CoolSculpting Elite applicator is applied to the treatment area to selectively target isolated pockets of fat while leaving surrounding tissue unharmed.

Fat cells are crystallized (frozen) and begin to die. Eventually, your body naturally begins to metabolize the treated fat cells. Unlike similar treatments that solely reduce the size of fat cells, CoolSculpting Elite helps completely flush damaged cells from the body leaving you with a more contoured physique.

Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting Elite?

CoolSculpting Elite is ideal for the patient who:


  • exercises

  • watches what they eat

  • wants a noninvasive procedure

  • wants their clothes to fit better

  • wants to look better in bathing suits

  • has stubborn fat in the abdomen, hips, back, thighs, arms, or double chin

CoolSculpting Elite is safe and effective for all skin types, textures, and tones. If you’re an otherwise healthy adult with isolated fat pockets, you’re most likely a good fit for the procedure. At the time of your in-person consultation, our expert providers at Kenneth Sanders Facial Plastic Surgery in Shreveport will assess your candidacy for the procedure and customize a treatment plan to help you effectively meet your goals.  You can also count on us to be completely honest if you are NOT a good candidate and would never steer you wrong.

How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?

CoolSculpting treatments can vary significantly from patient to patient. Depending on the treatment area(s), you can expect your procedure to take anywhere from 30-60 minutes. Patients who would like to address two areas at once (i.e., inner/outer thighs) can do so in a single office visit.

CoolSculpting Elite treatments are performed by the one of the only CoolSculpting Elite practices in Shreveport to have a CoolSculpting University trained expert. We have been doing this for over three years and have performed hundreds of treatments.


Most patients watch movies on our Flat screen tv, read a magazine, work on their computers with our office WiFi, talk on the phone, or even nap during the procedure.

What Results Will I See?

Many patients start to see initial results from their CoolSculpting Elite treatment in just a month or two. Clothing will begin to have a better fit, and you’ll notice a more streamlined physique over the course of several months. Final results from CoolSculpting Elite will be apparent about 3-4 months after your final session.

While you may be able to see a reduction of fat with one CoolSculpting Elite appointment, the majority of patients need a series of treatments to achieve an optimal outcome. You may need anywhere from 2 or more sessions based on your short and long-term goals.

Ruptured fat cells that are metabolized by the body are unable to reform. That being said, CoolSculpting Elite cannot prevent future fat from accumulating with considerable weight gain. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle will allow you to enjoy your results from your CoolSculpting Elite sessions for the rest of your life.

By targeting specific areas, CoolSculpting achieves significant fat reduction by freezing fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated by the body.

How Often Can You Get CoolSculpting? While most patients start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after their  first treatment, it's essential to understand how many times you can coolsculpt an area. Generally, two sessions are recommended but a  third may sometimes needed to achieve optimal results, with a recommended waiting period between sessions for optimal results.

Is There Any Downtime or Side Effects?

There is no downtime, recuperation, needles, anesthesia, chemicals or surgery involved with CoolSculpting Elite. Side effects are minimal and typically subside quickly. You may experience slight redness, swelling, or tenderness at or around the treatment site for several hours to several days.

While CoolSculpting Elite is generally safe, like all procedures, there are potential side effects. One rare side effect is paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH), which has historically occurred in approximately 1 in 4,000 treatments. However, with the introduction of newer, gentler applicators of Coolsculpting Advantage in 2016, this unwanted side effect became even less common. The comfortable handpieces of Cool Elite in 2021 have no reported cases of PAH.

CoolSculpting Elite vs Traditional CoolSculpting

What is the difference between CoolSculpting and CoolSculpting Elite? While both treatments are FDA-cleared, CoolSculpting Elite offers enhanced efficiency in eliminating fat.

CoolSculpting Elite


  • How is CoolSculpting Elite performed?
    The CoolSculpting Elite applicators are applied to the area of unwanted focal fat. This usually involves one or more of the following areas: abdomen, hips, bra-fat, inner/outer thighs, or chin. Using vacuum suction, the device gently draws the tissue with unwanted fat into the fitted chambers. Controlled cooling is then delivered to the treatment area, and the fat cells undergo “cryolypolysis” (cell death) due to freezing, while the surrounding tissue is unharmed. Approximately 25% of the exposed fat cells will be permanently destroyed, for significant body contouring improvement.
  • Is CoolSculpting Elite painful?
    There is some mild & temporary discomfort due to the initiation of the strong suction and extreme cold. You might experience a pulling sensation, mild pinching, tingling, stinging or cramping. However, as the temperature falls, there is a numbing effect and most patients sit comfortably during the treatment reading, watching television, or even napping! There may be some hypersensitivity of the skin in the treated area post-treatment; this general disappears in several days. There might also be some tenderness or soreness for about a week – similar to muscle soreness after a strong workout session. Patients are usually able to return to normal activities immediately post-treatment.
  • Will the fat come back?
    The total number of fat cells in your body is constant once you reach adulthood. These cells will get bigger or smaller as you gain or lose weight, but the number of cells remains the same. CoolSculpting destroys fat cells in the treated area and they are eliminated for good. So, it actually reduces the total number of fat cells you have in your body, and makes it so your body cannot store as much fat in the treated area as you could have before, leaving that area “sculpted” even if you gain weight in the future.
  • How long does it take to see results?
    Results may be seen as early as 1 to 3 months after treatment. You will initially experience some mild inflammation and swelling to the treated area. This should resolve within one to two weeks, then it will take another few weeks to see a noticeable difference. Full results from that session should be achieved within 12 weeks. Many patients require more than one treatment session to achieve their desired results. So, we schedule a follow-up appointment (including before and after photos and weight) 3 months after initial treatment to assess results and schedule future sessions, if needed.
  • Are there any side effects?
    Following treatment, you may experience mild redness, bruising, swelling or numbness in the treated area. This should resolve within 1- 2 weeks. The fat cell death is a small enough volume that your body breaks down the free fatty acids and triglycerides into harmless energy substrates, so there is no risk of elevated harmful lipids, heart disease or atherosclerosis as a result of CoolSculpting Elite treatment.
  • Will I lose weight with CoolSculpting Elite?
    CoolSculpting is a contouring or sculpting procedure that modifies the distribution of fat cells to change the shape of your body. Results are not related to weight and CoolSculpting Elite isn't a weight loss solution. It's a tool to eliminate diet and exercise resistant fat pockets. The closer you are to your ideal body weight, the more you'll see your CoolSculpting Elite results. We recommend a healthy lifestyle that includes proper diet and exercise to augment and support your CoolSculpting Elite results. Weight is monitored during your treatment cycle to ensure that patient weight gain is not impairing results.
  • What should I do before and after CoolSculpting Elite?
    Before treatment, avoid anti-inflammatory products (NSAIDs, ibuprophen, etc.) to help reduce the chance of bruising. After treatment, you may return to your normal daily activities immediately (including exercise). It's important to maintain your weight post treatment, as significant weight gain will compromise best results.
  • How much does it cost?
    Every patient has a unique treatment plan based on their body’s distribution of fat and their desired results. A personalized plan, including cost, will be developed for you at a private consultation appointment where you will receive a full-body assessment and all of your questions will be answered.

Matthew is a 45-year-old man who was trying to get rid of his "dad bod." In high school, Matthew was popular. He was the big football star that everyone adored. Matthew was in shape, and he performed exceptionally well on the field. When he advanced to college, it was the same. He maintained his figure by working out five times a week, sometimes more. After graduating from college, he got into the workforce, and he wasn't able to work out as often as he used to. It shifted from multiple times a week to once a week. The "dad bod" evolved, and eventually, he lost all hope for his body. Out of frustration, Matthew committed to a workout plan. Despite working out, some areas needed more attention. So, he checked out CoolSculpting. "I thought the treatment was designed only for women, but I quickly realized how wrong I was when I began the treatment. Over time, my stomach got flatter, and I finally began to see the results from working out at the gym too. I feel more self-assured now. I don't feel ashamed to take off my shirt and go swimming with my kids. I'm back!
