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
"I highly recommend Dr. Nguyen - Dr. Nguyen has great bedside manners, thorough explanation and holds her work to the highest standards. I had a vaginoplasty along with a bladder sling two years ago to help with incontinence and Interstitial Cystitis after having 4 kiddos. I recently returned to her office and had the G shot and Vaginal Rejuvination Shot. I would highly recommend her for any female issues you are having. I've referred two friends who have also worked with her and all of us have been extremely satisfied."- A. / RealSelf / Feb 21, 2020

I appreciated the professional way she approached the situation. The front office staff was friendly and attentive.Thank you Tien and Dr Nguyen for giving me back my quality of life!"- M.O. / Google / Jan 30, 2020
"Kybella - I’ve been wanting Kybella for a little over 2 years and decided to take the plunge and do it on my 29th birthday (January 17, 2020). For reference I’m 109lbs and 5ft. I’ve always had a small double chin but it got worse with each pregnancy (2) and never went away like the rest of my pregnancy weight. During the consultation I was recommended 2 sessions (2nd session scheduled March 6th) 3 vials each time. We did the 1st session immediately after the consultation. The numbing was the most painful part, after that everything was a breeze.I’ll post pics of my journey. Today is day 1 following treatment (not 24hrs post yet) and I have some sensitivity and my “double chin” is jiggly. Some slight bruising but other than that no issues. I was advised to sleep elevated which I did and will continue to do so for the next 2 nights at least. I iced 3-4 times yesterday and so far 1 time today. I’ll post pics today of a couple months before/a couple weeks before/immediately after procedure/today (1 day after)."- E. / RealSelf / Jan 18, 2020

CoolSculpting Procedure Technique
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.
CoolSculpting Expected Cost
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.
