Many men and women struggle with unwanted fat, yet feel hesitant to opt for surgical treatment like liposuction. Developed by Harvard-trained scientists, CoolSculpting® uses fat-freezing technology to kill fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissue or skin.1 This FDA-cleared procedure has a high patient satisfaction rating after just a single treatment.2
Dr. Bob Basu is a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in surgical and nonsurgical fat reduction. His experience, combined with his sensitive approach to each person’s needs, make him one of the top plastic surgeons in the Houston area, helping men and women throughout Texas feel comfortable and confident in their own skin.

Why Consider CoolSculpting®?
People who are good candidates for CoolSculpting® should be at or near their target weight and have realistic expectations about their results. Many people who consider CoolSculpting® have one or more of the following concerns:
- Persistent fatty deposits in the love handles or abdomen
- A double chin
- Pockets of fat in other parts of the body
Many people also use CoolSculpting® to improve upon their results from a previous liposuction or tummy tuck procedure.
How Much Does CoolSculpting® Cost?
The cost of CoolSculpting® can vary slightly depending on location, but our prices for CoolSculpting® body treatments are typically as follows:
- $750 per small area (1-hour treatment)
- $1500 per large area (1-hour treatment)
- $1500 for the CoolSculpting® Mini neck/chin treatment
For best results, it is generally recommended that men and women receiving CoolSculpting® body contouring have a minimum of two treatment sessions. At Basu Plastic Surgery, we offer frequent special promotions for CoolSculpting® body treatments. We also offer plastic surgery financing options to make your body contouring as affordable as possible.
Your CoolSculpting® Options
We will work closely with you to determine whether CoolSculpting® body contouring or the CoolSculpting® Mini would best suit your individual needs. After clearly communicating their goals with our professional aestheticians during a consultation, many men and women can schedule their nonsurgical body contouring procedure within the next week.
Your CoolSculpting® Procedure
CoolSculpting® treatment is non-invasive, meaning no anesthetic, needles, incisions or lengthy recovery period are needed. CoolSculpting® technology delivers controlled cooling to target the fat cells in the treatment area, which cause the fat cells to crystallize and then die.1 Eventually, the body gets rid of the fat cells through its natural waste-removal system, resulting in a slimmer, more toned look.
During treatment, you can read a magazine, check your email or simply relax. It usually takes about an hour to treat a single area of the body, and we can treat multiple areas during a single appointment.
Your Recovery & Results
Since the procedure does not involve anesthesia, incisions or injections, you won’t need any downtime to recover. Afterward, you can immediately return to your normal routine. The treated area may experience temporary side effects, such as swelling, tingling or numbness, but these should diminish on their own.
The most dramatic results generally appear around the 2-month mark.2 It may take 4 to 6 months for your body to completely eliminate the frozen fat cells. To maintain your results, you should stay at your current weight, eat a healthy and well-balanced diet and exercise regularly.
