Remove Stubborn Fat Without Surgery or Downtime!

CoolSculpting's unique technology uses controlled cooling to freeze and remove unwanted fat cells without surgery or downtime. The procedure is FDA-cleared, safe and effective. The results are lasting and undeniable. With millions of CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, people everywhere are getting a better view of themselves, thanks to CoolSculpting, the world's #1 body contouring procedure.

How does it work?

CoolSculpting by Zeltiq literally freezes fat cells, causing them to program themselves for natural self destruct in a process known as apoptosis. This is accomplished by using a vacuum to pull the fat away from the body between two cooling plates, where the fat is frozen to a precise temperature for one hour. At this temperature, your other cells such as skin, blood vessels, and nerves are not damaged


We are proud to offer patient treatments with two CoolSculpting machines during the same time. Instead of treating the love handles in two hours, both sides of the love handles can now be treated in just one hour. The ability to perform two treatments simultaneously will decrease your treatment time, and it allows for a more flexible schedule. Getting rid of unwanted fat is now even easier, and it can occur in half the time!

The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specially designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. Unlike gastric bypass surgery, the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however, a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. Request a one-on-one consultation with a CoolSculpting physician who will determine if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.

The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. Create a customized treatment plan, in person, with your physician that’s tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.

Your CoolSculpting physician will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting session will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. You and your provider may schedule additional sessions in order to meet your goals. Many people read, check email, or even take a nap during their sessions.

Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), they die and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.

As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.

The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the flank (love handles), abdomen and thigh. As the #1 body contouring procedure and with millions of CoolSculpting procedures performed worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.

During the procedure you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or discomfort. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and pain. Rare side effects may also occur. The CoolSculpting procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. The CoolSculpting procedure is not a treatment for obesity. As with any medical procedure, ask your physician if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.

Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, numbness or discomfort in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. Often times, patients return to work after their CoolSculpting session is over.

You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.

No supplements or pills are required and you do not have to adopt new diet and exercise habits. Many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after their CoolSculpting treatment. It is as if they get a second lease on their body and want to start anew again by taking even better care of themselves.

Many people, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting procedure, take even better care of themselves. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas.1

Tradition and Excellence Since 1964

Alexander Cosmetic Surgery, we have a simple philosophy—keep things simple! The ability to keep things simple requires both experience and common sense.

Keeping things simple has helped us:

  • make procedures easily understandable to patients
  • create simplified surgical steps that consistently produce natural results, time after time
  • avoid problems and complications
  • keep our patients happy

We have found that most patients are happy with themselves in general, and happy with the way they look. Our patients are not looking for radical change, just an improvement, rejuvenation, or refinement of what they already have. Combining tried and true procedures with good measures of common sense and practicality helps us do just that.

For the last 40 years we have been San Diego's leader in Facial Rejuvenation and Cosmetic Plastic Surgery. And since 2012, we have been San Diego's exclusive provider of CoolSculpting.
