CoolSculpting is a revolutionary nonsurgical procedure that is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (F.D.A.) to reduce fat in the targeted areas of the body. CoolSculpting works by freezing the fat cells, which freeze at higher temperatures than other tissues, until the targeted fat tissue dies. With time the dead cells are naturally processed out of the body and the patient has a new, slimmer figure. At North Dallas Urogynecology in Frisco, TX, double board-certified surgeon, Dr. Aimee Nguyen helps her patients develop a CoolSculpting treatment plan that is customized to target their stubborn areas of fat. CoolSculpting is best for patients who have mild to moderate amounts of fat that has been resistant to diet and exercise.
"If you are looking for the best doctor in the DFW area for Urogynecology Dr. Aimee Nguyen is it. 2 kids and turning 40 had me in the market for a sling for my bladder and some reconstruction in the vaginal/rectum area. She did a superb job with my surgery, no issue during or after. Everything went absolutely perfect. I truly believe Dr. Nguyen's skills are thee best and that is very reassuring to a patient. Any concerns I had she addressed through out the process. Her medical staff also did an excellent job in my care. I would definitely recommend her and would go back to her if I have an issue that she services."- S.W. / Google / Jan 29, 2018
"Best surgical experience ever. They have become like family to me - Here's a brief background on myself before I dive into this review: I am a female who is finishing up her last year in college. I grew up unaware that my labia were longer than what is considered to be normal. I always just thought that every other woman I knew was also having the same everyday difficulties that I experienced (difficult to put tampons in, chaffing, bulging in swimsuits, etc)...."- S. / RealSelf / Jan 11, 2019

"Incredible Results - Labioplasty is a very private matter. I did not tella soul I was having this done. Well, not technically. I found a friend of mine (very close friend) had it done in another city. Nonetheless, this is not a topic of discussion. So, that’s why I’m writting this.

"Cutting Those Wings Was the Best $ Ever Spent! - I wish I would have done this sooner. I initally thought that any surgeon could proform this type of surgery, but after having it done I now realize it takes SKILLS! I'm so glad I had a woman Dr. who knows a womans body proforming this on me. The healing process and pain wasn't bad at all. I only took ibuprofen and iced for the swelling. I'm rarely ever adjusting my undies/jeans/tights anymore..."- W. / RealSelf / Jan 10, 2019
After a thorough consultation with Dr. Nguyen, the CoolSculpting treatment can be performed in the office’s MedSpa. The procedure generally takes about 1 – 2 hours depending on the number of areas being treated and the size of each area. Patients usually feel some pressure and an initial chill for the first few minutes, but then the patient returns to feeling normal and they can relax, read, check email, or take a nap. The CoolSculpting device will be passed over the treated area, freezing the fat cells without affecting the surrounding tissue. Since the CoolSculpting procedure is nonsurgical, patients are able to return to their normal activities as soon as they feel able. Most patients need 2 – 3 CoolSculpting sessions to get their best results. The fat cells that were frozen die and are naturally processed out of the body over the next 4 – 6 months.
One session of CoolSculpting usually cost between $1,000 and $3,000 depending on the number of areas treated and the size of the areas being treated. Dr. Nguyen will discuss the estimated cost of treatment during the consultation and how many sessions may be needed.
Plan Your Procedure
The best candidates for CoolSculpting are at or near their healthy, ideal weight, however they still have stubborn pockets of fat that they have been unable to alter with diet and exercise. While patients may lose some weight after the CoolSculpting procedure, it is not a replacement for a weight loss program or a treatment for obesity. While listening to the patient’s needs and goals, Dr. Nguyen will help determine if CoolSculpting is their best treatment plan.
During the CoolSculpting procedure, the fat cells that are frozen die and cannot be re-created once they are eliminated from the body. However, the remaining fat cells in the body will expand if the patient does gain weight after the procedure. It is important for the patient to maintain a healthy lifestyle with a proper diet and regular exercise.
CoolSculpting is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (F.D.A.) for nonsurgical fat reduction in the body, including the love handles (flank), abdomen, and thighs. Over one million CoolSculpting treatments have been performed throughout the world for safe, effective nonsurgical fat reduction. Patients who have paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria or cryobulinemia should not have the CoolSculpting treatment.
After the CoolSculpting treatment, patients may experience temporary side effects, including numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, tingling, and mild discomfort. Dr. Nguyen will discuss all possible side effects and how long they should last. If the patient continues to experience side effects, they should contact Dr. Nguyen’s office.
