CoolSculpting® is a body contouring procedure that does not require surgery. The fat cells beneath the skin are frozen using a special device. After the fat cells are destroyed, they break down gradually, and the liver eventually removes them from the body. In 2012, CoolSculpting® was approved by the FDA. The procedure decreases the number of fat cells in the targeted area by quite a bit.
