San Francisco CoolSculpting

No one likes fat, and not everyone likes surgery or downtime. CoolSculpting is the ideal compromise for those desiring to treat stubborn areas without the recovery associated with surgery.* The procedure has become the leading technology for noninvasive fat loss in the market today.*

CoolSculpting uses a technology called cryolipolysis to freeze your fat cells. Each treatment causes an approximate 20% reduction in fat.* Once the fat cells are destroyed, they are harmlessly removed from your body.

It’s possible that you are not a good candidate for CoolSculpting. During your consultation, Dr. Sieber can tell you if CoolSculpting will benefit you. Luckily, if you’re not a candidate, Dr. Sieber will be able to recommend other treatment options to help you achieve your goals.

What Areas Does CoolSculpting Treat?*

There aren’t many areas that CoolScuplting can’t treat, including:

  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Bra line
  • Arms
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Upper and lower abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Buttocks

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

During your procedure, your fat is suctioned into a cup, which freezes and removes the cells over a 35-60 minute period. For the first 10 minutes of the treatment, you will experience mild discomfort that feels similar to putting your hand into freezing water. Once the applicator is removed, you will feel a slight burning and tingling sensation in your skin that will last for a few hours.

What’s The Recovery Like?

After treatment, you may experience numbness, bruising and swelling, which may last for several days. It will take 8-12 weeks before you notice your final results, so patience is paramount after your CoolSculpting treatment.*

Quick Facts About CoolSculpting

Treatment duration: 1-5 hours (depending on how many areas are treated) Anesthesia: None Inpatient or outpatient: In office Side effects: Numbness, bruising and swelling Recovery: 8-12 weeks


Q: How many treatments does CoolSculpting require for each area?

A: The number of treatments you need depends on how much fat you have in each treatment area. Some patients require just a single treatment while others may need multiple treatments to achieve the results they want.*

Q: What if I have extra skin and fat? Will CoolSculpting help to shrink my skin?

A: CoolScupting is approved only for fat loss and has not been proven to shrink skin.* Consulting with a physician will provide you with an honest assessment and guide you towards the best treatment option. Certain patients are better candidates for surgery than for CoolSculpting. Dr. Sieber can give you more information during your consultation.

Q: What if CoolSculpting doesn’t work?

A: The main reason CoolSculpting doesn’t work is that it was performed on a patient who was not a good candidate. Dr. Sieber only believes in technologies which he knows work. He also wants to make sure you get the best results possible, so he’ll tell you whether CoolSculpting would benefit you.*

I couldn’t be more pleased and excited about the refresh Dr. Sieber did on my face using a combination of botox and fillers. I had a baby a year ago and my face looked completely deflated. It felt to me that I looked like I had aged 5 years instantly by having a baby over 40. Dr. Sieber looked closely at my face and listened to my desires and fears in terms of the results I was seeking. I really liked that he took a conservative approach and followed up to check in and tweak things once the fillers and I had time to settle in.*

Dr. Sieber is a caring, friendly and talented doctor. I had two long consultations (free of charge) before scheduling my BBL (Brazilian butt lift). The staff and Dr. Sieber made me feel calm and relaxed the day of surgery. The results are amazing. Dr. Sieber understands a woman’s body and totally changed the shape of mine. I could not recommend him highly enough. I now go to him for my Botox and Juvederm.*

Dr. Sieber was fantastic throughout the entire process. From the beginning, he was patient with my questions and never made me feel pressured about making a decision. Once deciding that I was going to move forward with a breast augmentation, he made sure that I understood the process of the procedure and what I could expect post-surgery. I could not be happier with the results!*

Dr. Sieber is the best. I interviewed with numerous doctors. He pays close attention to detail. He called and checked on me and my results on a regular basis. My tummy procedure exceeded my expectation.*

Dr Sieber was very kind, knowledgeable and patient. He was able to answer all of my questions and put me completely at ease during the consultation as well as during the actual procedure. He made sure that I understood each part of the process which went a long way in alleviating my fears…after all, this is my face!*

He’s like my hair dresser, a magician, you just want to do a happy dance with the results, only these results are lasting. Ok, but seriously, the procedure was very smooth, the staff and the doctors (Dr Sieber and the anesthesiologist) had great communication and made sure I was comfortable with very clear and concise pre op and post op directions. The healing process was very easy and the results are FABULOUS. Side note, Dr. Sieber has really awesome skin, I feel like this is impressive and important because really, would you trust a dentist with bad teeth? I am so elated and satisfied with the results, the size is perfect and they look and feel very natural. They are exactly what I wanted.*

Dr. Sieber is attentive, responsive, and well trained. I had seen him for Botox and filler and he had done both without any pain or bruising and more importantly the results were fabulous. He has met with me on time at each appointment. He communicates what to expect, made sure I was comfortable throughout the procedure, checked on my healing every day post procedure. He couldn’t be more delightful not more talented. I had seen other plastic surgeons for in office treatments over the past decade and Dr. Sieber is at the top of the list in terms of delivering the desired outcome and high quality care.*
