What is coolsculpting
A non-surgical and natural way to eliminate stubborn fat
CoolSculpting is a revolutionary non-surgical contouring treatment that freezes stubborn fat, which then is naturally eliminated from your body. No needles, no special diets, no supplements, no surgery. And most importantly, no downtime.
Four questions you need to have answered before considering treatment
What is the background of the treatment?
Inspired by research reporting the phenomenon that children who sucked ice lollies lost fat in their cheeks, scientists at Harvard Medical School demonstrated that fat cells crystallised and died when exposed to a certain degree of cold. The result of this research and rigourous safety testing saw the launch of Coolsculpting by Zeltiq in the United states in 2009.
Is the treatment proven to be safe?
Coolsculpting’s patented technology includes the unique freeze detect safety feature. This ensures that an effective but safe degree of cooling is maintained at all times. Coolsculpting by Zeltiq is the worlds only cold based, non invasive body contouring treatment that is cleared by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in the United States. In addition it is CE marked as a class 11a medical device in Europe. No copycat cryolipolysis treatment can make these claims.
Who will the treatment be performed by?
Coolsculpting is performed exclusively by medical professionals. Your Coolsculpting experience at Sutton Medical Consulting Center will begin with a complimentary consultation with Dr Andrew P Willis. Your individual body shape is expertly assessed and a programme of treatments will be custom designed for you to sculpt your body to a slimmer shape. This treatment to transformation approach ensures the wow factor.
Dr Andrew P Willis is a Consultant Interventional Radiologist who is a member of the Royal College of Surgeons in London and a Fellow of the Royal College of Radiologists. Andrew says ‘Whilst results are important patient safety is paramount. This is why I invested in the
only proven safe technology – Coolsculpting.
Does the treatment have proven results?
Coolsculpting has been performed on approaching one million patients worldwide with more than 1000 systems available in 52 countries. You can expect to see an average 20 per cent fat reduction in each singly treated area. With a treatment to transformation approach we are finding greater reductions in fat producing wow result that lasts.
And all without surgery, scars or special diets. Research has demonstrated that Coolsculpting has over 95 per cent patient satisfaction and the results last with a more recent study showing that people who had Coolsculpting two years ago have maintained their visibly slimmer shape.
Goodbye to muffin tops and love handles
CoolSculpting is the coolest, most innovative, non-surgical way to lose those annoying bumps and bulges of stubborn fat. This revolutionary technology targets and cools unwanted fat cells in the selected area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat bulges.
Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting involves no needles, surgery, or downtime. Patients often spend procedure time reading, working on their laptops, or simply relaxing.
It’s safe, FDA-cleared and effective. Results look natural and can be seen as early as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results after one to three months.

What will the results be?
Many patients are satisfied after one treatment. However, during your consultation, we can discuss a treatment plan that will meet your specific treatment needs.
What happens during the treatment?
To initiate the treatment we will position the device on your body. The device will then draw the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure – enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. An hour or so later, depending on your needs, you’re done.
Can I return to normal activities after the procedure?
CoolSculpting is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, numbness or discomfort in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. Often times, patients return to work after the session is over.
When will I see results?
You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after one to three months. Your body is still flushing fat cells and will continue doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.
Are the results permanent?
During CoolSculpting, the treated fat cells are eliminated. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, long-term results should remain stable.
How do I get started?

Cool technology, even cooler results
‘I feel confident in a two-piece bathing suit. I haven’t had a two-piece on in years and I can walk around with it on. I have a form fitting dress on and when I walk down the street I feel confident. CoolSculpting is probably one of the best things I’ve ever done.’ – Paige
‘I definitely did not want or need surgery. That’s why I decided on CoolSculpting.’ – Karen
‘It’s not just that other people noticed the results – as in individual, it inspired me.’ – Jeani
‘I lead a fit and healthy lifestyle and I’m not overweight but my tummy needed help – Thank you Dr Willis and team’ – Louise
‘I am a 62 year old lady who tries to keep fit and healthy but could not shift the fat around my tummy.
I was nervous at first but Andy and Melanie instantly put me at ease, explaining the procedure. It was slightly uncomfortable to start with, but when the cooling kicked in the hour went quickly without any problems.
There was minimal swelling and discomfort for 10 days – then around 6 weeks I really noticed the fat disappearing. Now at 10 weeks I am a shadow of my former self – no muffin top now!
Andy and Melanie are such friendly, professional people who you can trust – thanks so much.’ – Julie 62
‘Since having my Coolsculpting treatments I have stopped wearing my support pants. I like fashion and I like wearing bodycon dresses but I had to wear big pants to hold my stomach in. I don’t need them now.’ – Faye 48
‘I am a 52 yr old female and although I don’t consider myself fat, I certainly had issues with certain parts of body, in particular, my tummy and more so my lovelhandles. No matter how hard I tried through exercise I could not get rid of these problem areas. I did some research around fat reduction and came across Coolsculpting. There are lots of things on the internet that make claims about fat reduction but I wanted something that worked. I read about how Coolsculpting came from Harvard Medical School and was the safest most effective way of losing fat without surgery, it appeared to be the best. I spoke to Dr Willis on the phone before I booked my consultation at the Coolsculpting clinic, at this point he asked me some questions and explained it would appear that I was a suitable candidate for the treatment.
On arrival at the clinic I was naturally a bit nervous but I was immediately put at ease by the warm friendly staff. I had my consultation and treatment on the same day, I was travelling and had decided beforehand that I wanted the treatment done. Dr Willis went through my medical history and reassured me as to how the procedure would progress. Whilst on the machine the staff were very attentive and offered me refreshments throughout, I even had some reflexology which made me feel quiet special and pampered. It’s now 8 weeks since I had my coolsculpting treatments and whilst I am absolutely delighted with the results, my husband who was very sceptical about the procedure is now one very happy man with the new me.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this clinic to my friends.’ – Sandy 52
‘I attended a Coolsculpting appointment with my wife and decided immediately that I both liked and trusted Andy & Melanie particularly as Andy has NHS consultant medical qualifications & Melanie nursing qualifications. They explained the procedure thoroughly clearly discussing its appropriate applications and what to expect. The consultation was free and there was absolutely no pressure to proceed. I, as a 63 year old male eat (relatively) well & keep active, attending the gym regularly. I had stubborn fat that I was self-conscious of below the navel that tended to project over shorts. On the spur of the moment I decided to join my wife and have a treatment. It was mildly uncomfortable for about 5 minutes only but that was it. I am so please I made this decision as the procedure has reduced this fat roll over by over 65% and I am much happier with my stomach.’ – Mark 63
‘I thought about liposuction many times but when push came to shove I was too frightened. I am a 38 year mother of 2 who wouldn’t bare my midriff on the beach because of the muffin top I had been left with after pregnancy. I am 5’8” and a size 8-10 and no matter how hard I tried, I struggled to improve my abdomen. I would always lose the fat from the areas I didn’t want to lose weight and my stomach was the last place I would lose it.
I had my coolsculpting treatment and 6 weeks later I was in a Bikini for the first time in 14 years. I couldn’t believe I didn’t have to go under the knife to achieve the stomach I now have. It was slightly uncomfortable initially when the treatment started and I had a few days pain following my treatment but I have, and would get more treatment in other areas, so this is testament to what little discomfort is associated with it.
This treatment has given me a whole new confidence and I am happy to talk to anybody about it because there is no.’ – Mel 38
‘Coolsculpting has redefined my body with the minimum of discomfort and with absolutely splendid results. I still can’t quite believe the improvement Coolsculpting has achieved and I’m thrilled that Coolsculpting has arrived in Sutton Coldfield and is available for us all. ‘ – Elaine 62
‘Coolsculpting is fabulous – it exceeded all my expectations.
Although I had seen other people’s ‘before and after’ pictures I was not totally convinced that a non-invasive procedure would produce such good results on me. Just a few weeks after treatment I was delighted with the improvement in the area treated which just seemed to get better week on week. However, it was not until I saw my own ‘before and after’ pictures that I realised what an amazing result there had been.
Andy and Melanie made the whole experience thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable. After 10 weeks I am really pleased with the result and am looking forward to my next treatment. I have regained my confidence and at 60+ I am again looking at bikinis for my next holiday!!
Coolsculpting – Go for it!’ – Ellen 64
