Got muffin tops, love handles, belly pooch, inner thigh fat, or “bra” fat? Dr. Max is proud to introduce the latest in non-surgical fat removal – CoolSculpting® by Zeltiq!

CoolSculpting® is an FDA-cleared procedure developed by Harvard scientists. Fat cells are susceptible to cold, so this treatment literally freezes unwanted, targeted fat and kills it. The procedure takes about an hour, does not involve surgery, and has minimal downtime. Frozen, crystallized fat cells are slowly eliminated from the body over the next two months but continue to be eliminated up to 6 months after the treatment! All other surrounding skin and tissues remain healthy.

This procedure works best on patients that have bulges or pockets of fat in one or more areas of their body – like a pooch in the belly, love handles, or a muffin top.

We offer “DUAL”-sculpting – TWO CoolSculpting machines – that way you can get your treatment completed in half the time! We are one of the few practices in Southern California to offer “dual”-sculpting! With other locations, a treatment could take 4 hours for 4 areas, but with “dual”-scultping, it will only take about 2 hours!

CoolSculpting does not replace a healthy lifestyle of eating well and exercise. CoolSculpting gives you confidence by allowing you to look better and fit into your clothes better! This is not a substitute for surgery or liposuction. Dr. Max is happy to see you for a complimentary cosmetic consultation to see if your body would best be treated with CoolSculpting or surgery. Dr. Max also proudly offers in-office, laser liposuction – SmartLipo – as well! Call 888.96.DR.MAX (888.963.7629) to make your consultation appointment today!
