Board certified (ABPS) plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin and the professional staff at the Modern Body Contouring and Laser Center (MBody) understand the frustrations of trying to sculpt an ideal physique on your own, as well as the logistical and budgetary challenges associated with surgical fat-reduction procedures (i.e. liposuction). To accommodate MBody’s busy patients who would like to improve their physique without interrupting their daily routine, we are pleased to offer Zeltiq’s revolutionary CoolSculpting® treatments. Formulated by Harvard scientists as a non-invasive, next-generation fat reduction technology, CoolSculpting® is FDA-approved, and has been shown to be a safe and effective, scalpel-free alternative to liposuction surgery.

CoolSculpting® is designed to target areas of the body where fat cells are accumulated and stored (i.e. abdomen, waist, thighs, and buttocks). Excess fat deposits in these “problem areas” are often resistant to reduction through healthy lifestyle changes and can produce misshapen body contours, unsightly bulges, and the dreaded “love handles” or “muffin tops.” Unlike many heat-based technologies, CoolSculpting® is fueled by an innovative process known as cryolipolysis,™ which involves the cooling and breaking down of fat cells within persistent fatty deposits. After the fat cells have been frozen, they are gently reduced through the body’s natural metabolic process without damaging the outer layers of the skin (epidermis) or the adjacent tissues. This minimizes post-treatment healing time and allows patients to resume their normal activities immediately after treatment.
What Can We Treat with CoolSculpting?
Many patients turn to CoolSculpting when they aren’t a good candidate for liposuction because the treatment area is so small or if they only need to lose an inch or two. If you already live a relatively healthy lifestyle but those extra inches just won’t budge, contouring your body with a non-invasive fat reduction procedure can help! We have different sizes of applicators to treat common problem areas, including:
The M-Body Difference
Personalized and customized treatment
FREE consultation to learn about your goals
Multiple modalities for surgical and non-surgical body contouring
Our CoolSculpting experts have performed more than 10,000 treatments
Treatments supervised by a U.S. Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon, not a medical director
We will match ANY advertised pricing on CoolSculpting so you always pay the lowest price
Your custom-tailored CoolSculpting® session should take no more than one hour, will not require any anesthesia, and will be performed in the comfort of either of our two pristine MBody practice facilities (Vienna and Richmond, VA). Most patients use their pain-free CoolSculpting® session time to relax, read, listen to music, or watch a movie.
During your treatment session, we will apply a gel pad and applicator cup to the designated treatment area and employ vacuum suction to draw the tissue between the cooling panels. The improvements to your body shape may become visible within three weeks, with optimal results becoming apparent within 2-4 months. Your CoolSculpting® fat-reduction results may be lasting, provided you maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to prevent accumulation of new fat cells in the treatment zones.**
CoolSculpting is an effective fat-reduction technique; however, some patients require a significant amount of fat removal and skin tightening that can only be achieved through surgical means. Fortunately, at MBody, we have two Board certified (ABPS) plastic surgeons available to provide helpful consultations as to the best surgical, non-surgical, or combination of surgical and non-invasive procedures.
CoolSculpting offers amazing results with numerous benefits, including:
Pain-free, completely comfortable treatment
Remarkable fat reduction in stubborn “trouble zone” areas**
Simple, outpatient procedure
Can safely be performed in one hour
No scalpels, injections, anesthesia, incisions, or traumatic suction
No risk of surgical complications
Convenient scheduling options
No post-treatment recovery time
No potential for burning or discomfort (as with some heat-based technologies)
Only ONE treatment is required for lasting results!**
CoolSculpting continues to be a popular fat reduction procedure because it doesn’t require surgery and results of the treatment can be seen in a matter of months. However, a condition called paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH) after cryolipolysis, a rare adverse effect of CoolSculpting where a painless but large mass of tissue develops in the treatment area, must be treated surgically.
Our board certified (ABPS) surgeons have extensive experience treating this condition with liposuction. It’s important for patients who develop this condition to know that CoolSculpting will cover the cost of liposuction, in most cases. Liposuction removes the mass permanently so patients can finally enjoy their desired result.
DISCLAIMER: Weight loss is never permanent, and CoolSculpting® is NOT intended as a weight loss mechanism. This procedure removes fat cells from the body, but the remaining fat cells can continue to grow and expand. To maintain long-term results, be sure to maintain a stable weight and adhere to a healthy diet and exercise routine.
