Molly Sims: How She Got Her Body Back With CoolSculpting

Grant A. Fairbanks, M.D., Fairbanks Plastic Surgery office in the greater Salt Lake City area is one of the few in Utah to have two CoolSculpting machines. With that we can offer DualSculpting which cuts the time in half of a regular CoolSculpting session. We also have two members of our team who have been certified in CoolSculpting, in order to give you the very best results, in the shortest amount of time! Our CoolSculpting suite is comfortable and relaxing.

CoolSculpting is a fat-reduction procedure that uses no needles, special diets, or recovery time to produce dramatic results. Instead, CoolSculpting uses advanced, targeted cooling to produce completely non-invasive and long-lasting fat reduction. You can read, watch television, or even nap while the brief procedure is performed and return to your work and exercise regimens immediately afterwards.

The idea of CoolSculpting occurred from a doctor’s curiosity of the cause of popsicle panniculitus, a condition of fat loss in the cheeks caused in children from having popsicles in their mouths too long. He connected the dots when he realized that fat freezes before water or skin, parallel to how butter solidifies sooner than water. He realized that it was possible to safely freeze away fat deposits. This scientist then developed an FDA-approved technique to carefully chill fat deposits in the stomach and love handles to a specific temperature to naturally kill fat cells while leaving the rest of your tissue unharmed. In just a few months after the treatment, the frozen fat cells are slowly removed by your body's natural system, resulting in noticeably reduced bulge after a few weeks.

Heavier patients or those with substantial skin laxity may be better candidates for liposuction or other forms of surgical body contouring, so it is important to be evaluated by a practice, like ours, that can offer you the full spectrum of services (from a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon).

We have applicators that can target fat in the stomach, love handles, thighs, and a new and very exciting option called the “Mini” which is perfect to treat a double chin!



The "Mini" applicator at its finest.
