One of the most prevalent trends in plastic surgery is an expanding list of procedures that do not require surgery at all. For quite some time, most of these treatments were used on the face, while non-surgical treatments for the body were not available. There is now an innovative technology that Dr. Jeffrey Rockmore offers that removes fat without any surgery or recovery time. It is called CoolSculpting, and it is growing in popularity in Albany, NY and beyond.
Dr. Rockmore approaches each procedure with precision and artistic vision to reveal each patient's unique beauty. To get started, request a free consultation using his online form or call his office at (518) 438-0505.

CoolSculpting uses a process called Cryolipolysis® to permanently remove fat cells completely non-invasively. By exposing the targeted fat cells to a specific cold temperature from outside the skin, the cells enter a process where they are damaged, absorbed, and permanently removed by the body.
Because weight gain occurs from an increase in size of the individual fat cells rather than an increase in the number of cells, this reduction in the fat cell population in the treated area creates a permanent improvement. The amount of improvement with CoolSculpting is predictable, with approximately 25% of the fat in the treated area removed with a single treatment.
Prompt, professional, perfection. The essential ingredients necessary for a successful medical procedure. Dr. Rockmore employs these skills to ensure an outstanding outcome and he does so with a grace that few other plastic surgeons have. As a consequence, I would rate him with ten stars if allowed to!
At his practice in Albany, Dr. Rockmore uses the CoolSculpting system's different handpieces to target different areas of the body where stubborn fat tends to accumulate. He can target your:
Love handles, or flanks
Lateral thighs, or saddlebags
Dr. Rockmore can treat multiple areas in a single day or target one spot.

Are You a Candidate?
Although the results of CoolSculpting treatments can be very impressive, not everyone is a good candidate. The ideal candidate has:
Good skin elasticity: CoolSculpting relies on the overlying skin to contract after the fat is removed to fit your new form.
Localized areas of fat: CoolSculpting works best in men and women who are otherwise fit and have problem areas of fat that has not responded to diet and exercise. It is not a good treatment for generalized weight loss.
Although not everyone is an ideal candidate, these guidelines will give the best results. You may also be a good candidate for CoolSculpting if you'd rather avoid a fat reduction surgery such as liposuction for any reason.
The CoolSculpting Procedure
Prior to your CoolSculpting treatment, you need no specific preparation. You can drive yourself to and from our office for the appointment. CoolSculpting is done in a calming room that we have designed for your comfort during the procedure.
You are first marked by Dr. Rockmore's trained nurse, and the CoolSculpting handpiece is then applied to your body. Initially it feels cold, but the area rapidly becomes numb. You sit in our recliner during the 1-hour treatment, passing the time by watching TV on the flat screen in front of you or doing some work on your laptop. Each treated area takes an hour, and multiple areas can be done during your appointment. Once the CoolSculpting treatment is completed, you can go back to work, play, or fun without any recovery time.
The results from your CoolSculpting treatment will become gradually apparent over the next couple of months. After 3 months, much of the change will be visible, though there will be continued improvement for up to 6 months.
