Today, we’re excited to share a decade’s worth of success on the COOLSCULPTING® forefront. Now, COOLSCULPTING® is not unique to Capizzi MD Plastic Surgery, but this technique is. By working with former colleagues from the Mayo Clinic, Dr. Capizzi has refined his technique for longstanding success.

More and more people are interested in non-invasive procedures like COOLSCULPTING®. Patients come into our office wanting outcomes without the surgery. It is a body contouring treatment that can help slim features without anesthesia or recovery. All of our technicians have gone to COOLSCULPTING® University to get the latest and greatest information.

Who Is a Candidate for COOLSCULPTING®?

Many people are plagued by unwanted fat. For some, tummy tuck and liposuction procedures are solutions. These are highly effective surgical procedures requiring anesthetic, downtime, sometimes a hospital stay and a financial commitment. However, what if you simply struggle with a stubborn area despite eating well and working out?

If you have an otherwise healthy lifestyle but still have unwanted fat, COOLSCULPTING® may be the solution. It may not be for patients who desire a “quick fix.” Although it has lasting results, it does take from 2-3 months after treatment to see the full results.


Developed by Harvard scientists and FDA-cleared, COOLSCULPTING® is a non-surgical treatment that freezes away unwanted fat. A cooling panel is placed on the treatment area, targeting fat cells underneath the skin while leaving the skin itself unaffected. The body naturally disposes of the terminated fat cells within three months. This technique can be used on a variety of different areas including the legs, abdomen, arms, buttocks, and more.

COOLSCULPTING® uses a procedure known as cryolipolysis to eliminate fat. The treatments typically last from 45 minutes to 2 hours depending on the number of areas treated. The fat cells that are affected during a treatment are permanently destroyed and will not come back. That said, you can best preserve your results by staying a similar weight after your treatment.

What Can I Expect?

There is little to no recovery time with a COOLSCULPTING® procedure. Most people are able to resume normal day-to-day activities directly following their appointment. In some cases, some minor redness and soreness may occur in the area treated. These possible side effects resolve themselves within a week after treatment.

After the procedure, our patients typically see results start to appear 5-6 weeks after their appointment. They continue developing and are usually totally apparent within 3 months. Sometimes areas require more treatments to get the desired look. During a consultation, you will be able to find out how many treatments you would require.

Dr. Capizzi’s COOLSCULPTING® Approach Is Unique

In 2013, Dr. Capizzi and Dr. Jennifer Harrington has been involved developing advanced COOLSCULPTING® treatment techniques. As former colleagues at Mayo Clinic, Dr. Capizzi and Dr. Harrington frequently combine forces to provide advancements in plastic surgery. We’ve taken to calling it The Capizzi Method. For the past six years, the Capizzi Method has produced results twice as fast as other protocols.

How Is the Capizzi Method Different?

  • Treatment Area:
    Each treatment is designed specifically for each patient. The goal of each treatment is to impact the MOST fat cells possible.
  • Dual Machines:
    Results are all about the power of the fat-freezing machine and educated technician. Capizzi MD has two COOLSCULPTING® machines to support expedited service and results.
  • A Side of BOTOX®:
    Some patient schedule Botox injections during COOLSCULPTING® to make the most of their appointment. We also see patients that schedule IV Hydration therapy so they walk out of our office simply glowing.
  • Décolletage Sculpting:
    After breast implant surgery, Drs. Capizzi and Harrington have discovered that COOLSCULPTING® can safely and effectively be deployed to refine the décolletage for a firm, but supple augmentation result.

At Capizzi MD Plastic Surgery, healthy, safe and natural outcomes are what matter most. We want you to feel confident you’ve chosen the right practice for breast surgery, body contouring, or anti-aging treatments.
