Transform Your Body — And Life — With Coolsculpting

Friday December 22, 2017 | Body Contouring

What if there were an effective treatment to deal with stubborn, exercise-resistant fat that doesn’t involve endless hours of cardio, diets, liposuction, scars, or surgery? What if you could get liposuction-like results with zero needles, surgery, or downtime?

Dr. Sarah Mess has the solution you’ve been looking for.

Coolsculpting® is an exciting new FDA-approved, non-surgical procedure that targets and freezes stubborn areas of fat — resulting in permanent fat-reduction in preferred areas. Coolsculpting® has over 15 years of R&D Harvard research, over 4 million cycles performed, and 70 peer-reviewed studies.

Dr. Mess paved the way as the first plastic surgeon in Maryland to offer Coolsculpting.® She’s performed over a thousand successful procedures on men and women in her Columbia, Maryland office.

Any area of the body that has excess fat can be targeted. If you can pinch it, we can Coolsculpt it! 

Popular target areas are:

  • abs
  • flanks
  • thighs
  • bra rolls
  • back
  • chin

Dr. Sarah Mess uses the newest technology.

She also offers DualSculpting® — the option of targeting two areas at a time, saving you time and money.


So how does it work?

A special applicator is applied to the designated area for 30 minutes. This targets and freezes fat cells through a revolutionary freezing process called “cryolipolysis” — without harming the surrounding tissues. Your body then metabolizes and eliminates the destroyed cells naturally over time.

Oh, and the destroyed fat cells never return.

Since fat freezes at a higher temperature than skin, muscles, and tissue, Coolsculpting® rids your body of excess fat without damaging the surrounding areas.

Patients can return to normal activities immediately after their Coolsculpting® treatment with no downtime. You can expect to see gradual results in as little as three weeks and final results by four months.

The best candidates for this procedure are people within 20-30 lbs of their target weight (that have at least one inch of fat they can pinch) and are in good health overall.

Coolsculpting® can be effective on people who are 30 or more pounds overweight, but these patients may require additional treatments.

We are always happy to discuss your needs!
