About CoolSculpting

about coolsculpting flanks

CoolSculpting was developed many years ago when scientists noticed that children who ate popsicles often developed dimples. These scientists hypothesized that the consistent cold was killing fat cells. After much testing and developments they created what we know today as CoolSculpting. The fat freezing science behind CoolSculpting is known as cryolipolysis.  

CoolSculpting is FDA-approved and can treat many areas on the body, such as the thighs, abdomen, back, upper arms, double chin and the flanks. The device monitors the temperature emitted for safety. Specific applicators have been created to treat each of these areas in a safe and effective way. 

The flanks are treated with the CoolAdvantage Applicator with interchangeable contours. This device will attach to any body type as long as enough fat is present to suction to. The suction action of the applicator serves a dual purpose. The suction will allow the device to stay in place throughout treatment, as well as draw fat cells up to the surface of the skin for an effective treatment.

We love CoolSculpting because it is a non-invasive treatment. This means no incisions, no risk of scarring, no injections, no anesthesia, no narcotics, and no downtime! You can schedule an appointment over your lunch break and go back to work knowing that you have been proactive about looking your best! CoolSculpting is perfect for busy parents, people with demanding jobs and individuals who are not interested in the costs and downtime associated with body contouring surgeries.


CoolSculpting is a great treatment for men and women who are not interested in surgical treatments but still want to slim down areas of exercise- and diet-resistant fat. Ideal candidates for CoolSculpting should have enough fat available in the flanks to pinch.

If you are bothered by fat along your flanks that makes you appear barrel-like or that detracts from the curves of your body, flank CoolSculpting is your best non-invasive treatment.

Personal Consultation

During your private meeting you will have the opportunity to learn about CoolSculpting and how it is helping our patients accomplish their body goals. CoolSculpting treatments will be explained in-depth so you understand how this technology will diminish fat in your flanks. We will take the time to answer your questions and address any concerns you may have. There is no such thing as a silly question: we will be happy to discuss any and all the aspects of the CoolSculpting treatment with you!

Along with your questions, we will also ask you a few questions in order to create your ideal, safe treatment plan. You will be asked questions regarding your medical history, allergies, current lifestyle, and medication regime.


Unless notified by our staff, you will not need to prepare for your CoolSculpting treatment. We just need you to show up and relax while CoolSculpting does all the work!

CoolSculpting Flanks Treatment

When you arrive to your treatment, you will be greeted and led to a state-of-the-art office that is furnished with CoolSculpting technology. Your clothes may need to be rearranged so that the CoolSculpting applicators can be attached securely. Once you are prepped and sitting in a comfy chair, the treatment will begin.

-The CoolAdvantage Applicator with interchangeable contours will be applied to your flanks. The suction action will allow the applicator to remain secure throughout treatment and provide a more effective treatment.

-After about thirty-five to forty-five minutes of exposure to cold temperatures, the treatment will be complete.

-Slight pressure will be felt as the applicators are removed, after which your flanks will be massaged for a few minutes to increase blood flow.

After your treatment you will be able to return to your regular schedule!


Following your appointment, your flanks will be numb for a while. Feeling will return as the day progresses. Tingling sensations will accompany the returning feeling and, if the sensations become uncomfortable, over-the-counter medications can be taken. Your skin may be discolored for a few hours in the area the devices were attached. A normal skin tone should return within twenty-four hours.


Results most often emerge within six to eight weeks.

After your CoolSculpting treatment, your body will be removing the dead fat cells from your flanks and metabolizing them. These fat cells that are burned off by your body are gone for good! You will see a reduction in the fat on your flanks within a few weeks of your treatment. Some patients enjoy fat loss for up to six months following their treatment! The fat stores in your flanks will be impacted for the long-term. Your slim results can be maintained with a healthy lifestyle and diet.

CoolSculpting will completely transform your figure! A single CoolSculpting session is a convenient way to reduce fat in the flanks by up to 25%. Many patients enjoy their slimmest, most flattering results within three CoolSculpting sessions.

At Quinn Plastic Surgery, we will take the time to work with you and create your best, personalized fat reduction plan. 

Complementary Procedures

CoolSculpting is such a simple treatment that two areas are often treated in one appointment. If you are bothered by another area of resistant fat along your body, you can simply maximize your appointment and treat two areas with CoolSculpting. If you want to slim down your stomach or get rid of a double chin, CoolSculpting is your solution! Ask us about combining treatment areas in one appointment when you schedule your consultation.


The cost of your CoolSculpting treatment will be particular to you and your body goals. The cost will also change if you choose to combine CoolSculpting with another simple treatment during your appointment. A cost breakdown will be gone over with you during your personal consultation.

How much does CoolSculpting cost for flanks?

The cost of CoolSculpting flank fat will depend on the number of appointments needed to achieve your desired outcome and whether you combine your CoolSculpting treatment with another treatment. A cost breakdown will be gone over in your private meeting.

How many CoolSculpting treatments are needed for flanks?

The amount of treatments needed to achieve your desired aesthetic will depend on a few factors – including the amount of fat present in the area and the end goal desired. During your personal consultation, you and one of our staff members will create your ideal treatment plan that includes an estimate of the number of treatments you may need. On average, patients often receive up to three treatments to achieve their body goals.

What are the flanks?

The flanks are found on the sides of the body and are the area between the rib cage and hip. Some doctors refer to it as the lumbar region. This area can develop resistant fat that will not slim down even with an improved diet or increased exercise. In these cases, CoolSculpting is the best non-surgical solution to getting rid of excess fat in the flank area. Reach out to our office today to see if you qualify for a flank CoolSculpting procedure.

How much does it cost for CoolSculpting?

The cost of each CoolSculpting will depend on the treatment received and the personalized details created. A cost breakdown will be detailed at the end of your private consultation. 

Is CoolSculpting permanent?

CoolSculpting produces long-lasting results. Maintaining these results will be up to you. The fat cells killed and removed with CoolSculpting will never return. The best way to keep your post-treatment results looking great will be to adopt a healthy lifestyle of wholesome eating and exercise.

What are the risks of CoolSculpting?

There are less risks associated with CoolSculpting than with an invasive surgical procedure. We take the safety of our patients very seriously. Each patient will attend a personal consultation where they will be encouraged to ask questions and voice any concerns about CoolSculpting. We will use this meeting as an opportunity to have an open conversation about CoolSculpting and the potential risks involved.

Do you lose weight when you do CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is meant as a body contouring technique and not as a weight loss solution. When fat is frozen and metabolized, you may lose a small amount of weight. This will be achieved over the weeks following your appointment. The main goal of CoolSculpting is to get rid of bothersome fat stores, not to reduce moderate to large amounts of weight.

If you are frustrated with fat deposits along your body, particularly along your flanks, contact our office and set up a consultation to get you started down the road to a slimmer, more attractive frame.
