As heard on 95.5 PLJ CoolSculpting at The Peer Group
95.5 WPLJ's Annie shares her experience with CoolSculpting at The Peer Group.
Women and men who would like to get rid of stubborn body fat, but would rather avoid surgery, may be good candidates for CoolSculpting fat freezing treatments at The Peer Group Plastic Surgery in northern New Jersey. This innovative procedure uses cooling energy to eliminate fat without the need for anesthesia, incisions, or recovery time. CoolSculpting targets stubborn fat in the stomach, thighs, flanks or love handles, under the chin, around the bra and underneath the buttocks. While CoolSculpting provides impressive results, it is not as predictable and precise as those achieved with liposuction. Our plastic surgeons evaluate each person’s condition and recommend options that take his or her cosmetic goals and lifestyle into account.
The Peer Group Plastic Surgery is proud to be a CoolSculpting Certified Practice. To become a Certified Practice, our doctors and medical team have undergone extensive training and monitoring for CoolSculpting. This training has helped our staff gain a deeper understanding of the science behind CoolSculpting and how to administer the treatment for maximum effectiveness. Our patients can expect thorough, beautiful results, as well as a more enjoyable treatment experience.
We carry all of the latest applicators - CoolAdvantage™, CoolAdvantage™ Plus, CoolAdvantage™ Petite, CoolMini® and CoolSmooth PRO™ which makes The Peer Group a CoolSculpting Complete Practice with the distinction of having completed over 1,000 treatments.
During a CoolSculpting procedure, a cooling device is placed on the area of the body where the fat is to be treated. The device pulls the fat pocket up between the cooling panels, where the freezing process will ensue. Patients will feel some pressure, but no pain. Each CoolSculpting application takes only 35 minutes and several areas can be treated in a single treatment session. Following the procedure, patients may have some redness and tingling sensation on the areas treated, but this typically subsides quickly.
The Peer Group is one of the area's only facilities that has two CoolSculpting machines and multiple applicators that allow us to treat two different areas at the same time. With DualSculpting or dual CoolSculpting, we can offer more flexible scheduling and patients can complete their treatments faster.

All New Jersey Peer Group CoolSculpting procedures are performed in our comfortable spa-like suite. No anesthesia or numbing medication is necessary, due to the procedure’s pain free process, and patients are allowed to resume normal activity following their treatment. Patients will begin to see results within several weeks. On average, it takes about two to three months for the most dramatic results to take shape since the frozen fat cells naturally dissolve from the body over time. Patients should adhere to a healthy diet and eating plan to help maintain their results.
Is CoolSculpting Safe?
Yes. This procedure was developed by Harvard scientists and approved by the FDA in 2010. At that time, the safety and efficacy of CoolSculpting were proven. It is a non-invasive, non-surgical alternative to liposuction procedure that does not require any downtime.
Will the Fat Come Back?
Once the fat cells are frozen, the body's natural process eliminates them. These treated fat cells are gone for good. Most individuals take even better care of themselves after seeing their CoolSculpting results, however; weight gain after CoolSculpting can cause remaining or existing fat cells to enlarge. A healthy diet and fitness program is important to maximize CoolSculpting results long-term.
How Many Treatments?
This will be decided during your consultation. For many individuals, one cycle of treatment is enough to obtain the desired results, although some patients usually need more than one cycle. Our body contouring specialists will create an individualized treatment plan tailored toward the patient's specific goals. We will also determine if DualSculpting or dual CoolSculpting is right for you at your complimentary consultation.
