Gorgeous Results Guarantee
The Aesthetics Center at Dr. Tyrone’s office is committed to you and your results. If at the 4 (four) months after your completed treatment protocol, we are not seeing the anticipated changes for the treatment(s) you’ve done, and you have maintained your body composition (not gained weight) from your initial treatment, we will bring you back at month 5 (five) to take new photos and evaluate if a free treatment will be done. It is imperative for you to do your part. Continuing with healthy habits and post-care protocols is an essential part of this treatment so that CoolSculpting® Elite can successfully eliminate your fat cells and you can appreciate your results.
What Is CoolSculpting® Elite?
CoolSculpting® Elite is the only FDA-approved, non-invasive body contouring treatment for stubborn fat reduction that utilizes cooling technology. The procedure is based on the principle of cooling subcutaneous fat to the point that the fat cells are destroyed by the cooling process and absorbed by the body. Subcutaneous fat is the layer of fat just under the skin. Once the fat cells crystallize (freeze) and die, the body eliminates them naturally through its normal waste-removal processes. The result is a slimmer you!

Benefits Of Fat Reduction Treatments
The benefits of CoolSculpting® Elite are wide-reaching — patients enjoy perks in all aspects of life, from weight loss and better self-esteem to minimal scarring and side effects. Other CoolSculpting® Elite benefits include the following.
- Targeted fat reduction. Unlike other fat-reduction methods that cover the whole body, CoolSculpting® Elite allows patients to pick specific stubborn fat areas to eliminate.
- Low risk. While any cosmetic procedure comes with risks, CoolSculpting® Elite is non-invasive with minimal risks that are often temporary, such as numbness, tingling, and redness.
- No scarring. Plastic surgery that uses incisions will leave scars, no matter how hard patients try to avoid them. Ditch scarring altogether — CoolSculpting® Elite leaves none!
- Quick & easy. Patients with busy schedules might not have time to go in for multiple appointments that can last hours. CoolSculpting® Elite is quick — completed in as little as 35 minutes.

How Does CoolSculpting® Elite Work?
CoolSculpting® Elite eliminates undesirable pockets of fat by gathering them between two computer-monitored panels and freezing them to death. The beauty of this fat reduction process is that the healthy surrounding cells remain intact, while the targeted fat cells are absorbed into the body to be eliminated as biowaste. After coating your skin with a soothing gel, Dr. Tyrone or Dr. Khairalla will apply the cryolipolysis panels. The CoolSculpting® Elite procedure is carefully monitored through computerized safety sensors to ensure that results are evenly distributed and that patients remain comfortable at all times.
Fat cells in the body become bigger or smaller as we gain or lose weight.
CoolSculpting® Elite freezes these cells without damaging the surrounding tissue.
Once frozen, these fat cells begin to collapse, initiating the cell death process.
During the months following the procedure, the body naturally disposes of the dead fat cells.
What Are The Side Effects Of CoolSculpting® Elite?
CoolSculpting® Elite is an FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment to eliminate fat on the body immune to diet and exercise. Though it’s a nonsurgical procedure, patients should still be aware of the side effects involved with this cosmetic procedure, including the following.
- Tugging Sensation
- Skin Sensitivity
How Do I Prepare For CoolSculpting® Elite?
Given CoolSculpting® Elite is non-invasive, patients don’t have to do much to prepare for the procedure. However, it’s important to make sure your body is healthy and close to your ideal weight. CoolSculpting® Elite is not a weight-loss solution. An ideal candidate is healthy, fit, and looking for a tool to eliminate body bulges. Although bruising from the suction of the applicator is common after CoolSculpting® Elite, it’s a good idea to avoid anti-inflammatories such as aspirin before the procedure. This will help reduce any bruising that may occur.
What To Expect During The CoolSculpting® Elite Procedure?
The CoolSculpting® Elite procedure is brief and non-invasive and effectively delivers lasting results. Here is what to expect when you visit John W. Tyrone M.D. Aesthetics & Plastic Surgery for CoolSculpting® Elite in Gainesville. Contact us to schedule a consultation!
The length and number of CoolSculpting® Elite procedures patients need is based on their individualized treatment plans. During the consultation, Dr. Tyrone will ask patients to express which parts of the body they’d like to receive treatment.
Most CoolSculpting® Elite treatments last between 35 minutes and 1 hour. Some patients return for additional treatments; others have multiple sessions done on the same day; while some only require a single treatment. During the procedure, patients may read a book, listen to music, or even take a nap.
Because CoolSculpting® Elite is non-surgical, patients can usually return to normal activities immediately following the procedure. Patients should begin to notice changes after 3 weeks and see dramatic results at the 2-month mark (your body will continue flushing out fat cells for up to 6 months after treatment).
For the best results following a CoolSculpting® Elite procedure, commit to a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise. Genetics can make it difficult for many patients to shed unwanted fat bulges with exercise or diets alone. However, after the procedure removes those fat cells, living healthy will help keep you slim and confident.
