CoolSculpting® Specialist NYC


The best in class board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Douglas M. Senderoff, offers CoolSculpting® fat removal and body contouring at his Manhattan, NYC based plastic surgery practice. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. CoolSculpting® is a procedure offered by the NYC plastic surgeon that eliminates unwanted fat cells by freezing them. There is no downtime associated with the CoolSculpting® treatment.

  • All treatments are customized to your unique condition.
  • We offer Dual CoolSculpting® (2 areas of CoolSculpting® at the same time), and CoolTone® (strengthen, lift and tighten your abs, buttocks, thighs, and arms without stepping one foot into the gym).

CoolSculpting® is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and reduce diet and exercise-resistant fat. CoolSculpting® results are proven, noticeable, and lasting. With a 95% patient satisfaction rate, this is a popular treatment that delivers effective results.

The most common areas the NYC plastic surgeon treats with CoolSculpting® are:

  • Abdomen / Stomach – it is effective to remove a post-pregnancy (or even beer) belly
  • Flanks
  • Male breasts (gynecomastia alternative)
  • Arms – Batwings
  • Saddlebags
  • Back fat / Bra fat
  • Inner thigh
  • Chin – Double chin
  • Love handles
  • Neck

How does CoolSculpting® work? Fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than other cells. This allows CoolSculpting® to safely target these fat cells without damaging the surrounding non-fat cells. After a precisely controlled dose of cooling with CoolSculpting®, the fat cells freeze and crystallize. This disrupts their cell membrane and causes the cells to undergo a process called “apoptosis”. Through this process, the fat cells die off and are cleared out by the body as waste material.

We will work with you to create a unique CoolSculpting® treatment plan that’s tailored to your body plus your goals.

How many CoolSculpting® treatments do I need? Every patient is unique but each patient will see a noticeable reduction of 25% fat in the treated area after just one visit. Each session takes approximately 60 minutes. Follow-up treatments will result in further improvement. Typically one to two treatments for each treatment area are required, depending on the individual patient and your treatment objectives.

When are results visible? CoolSculpting® does not work instantly, as it is a non-surgical, fat-freezing technique, where fat is frozen before being removed naturally by the body’s immune system. Results from CoolSculpting® will start to be noticeable after 3 to 6 weeks but it takes between 2 to 4 months to see the full results.

What does CoolSculpting® feel like? As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon settles. Many people read, watch videos, use their phones, work on their laptops, or even take a nap during their treatment.

What is the recovery process after CoolSculpting®? CoolSculpting® is completely non-surgical. Patients can return to work or their normal activities immediately following CoolSculpting®. We recommend that you drink plenty of water following your treatment.

Who is a candidate for CoolSculpting®? CoolSculpting® is recommended for anyone who is in a relatively healthy weight range but cannot seem to eliminate targeted areas of fat through diet and exercise. It is important to remember that CoolSculpting is not recommended as a weight-loss treatment.
