We at Om’echaye strive to offer our patrons the best there is when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle, and we are proud to provide CoolSculpting® in Miami to those lookingfor a safe and effective fat reduction method. Unlike other facilities, all CoolSculpting® procedures at Om'echaye are performed by Anna Sottile, M.D., who brings 30 years of medical and cosmetic experience to her practice.
Coolsculpting® exposes fat to controlled cooling that crystallizes targeted fat cells to the point the fat cells themselves die and are then eliminated from the body.
The process is simple: a protective gel is applied to the targeted area where the patient wishes to see fat reduced and then the CoolSculpting® applicator is applied. The applicator produces a suction action and cool temperatures that freeze the fat cells beneath the skin and will eventually kill the fat cells. Om’echaye features the newest technology for the procedure including silicone applicators and we are one of very few practices in the area to offer the upper-arms applicator.
During treatment, the patient experiences is a cool, suction feeling. While this is going on, the patient can relax or watch TV. It really is that simple of a safe and tolerant procedure.
Before undergoing the procedure, each client is asked to create an individualized plan that discusses what their body image goal is and which specific areas are to be targeted. This requirement is to determine whether CoolSculpting® will provide the results the patient wants to see – after all, we want to make sure each individual is satisfied with the experience. The individualized plan also allows for the patient and doctor to determine an appropriate number of cycles and how to best tackle each trouble area.
An ideal candidate is one who has noticeable bulges that he or she wishes to reduce. While CoolSculpting® can be used on multiple parts of the body, it is not recommended as a weight-loss solution for the entire body for people who are obese. In spite of stable, healthy eating habits and physical activity.
Unlike some other fat-reducing techniques, CoolSculpting® is safe by multiple standards. It is FDA-cleared, meaning it is considered safe by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Also, the procedure itself is non-invasive – at no point is there need for anything to enter the body. It also requires no anesthetics.
The fact that it is non-invasive and anesthetic-free also means recovery time is minimal. Most patients go back to their daily routine as soon as the procedure is over. There is no need for downtime or extra care. This is perfect for anyone with a busy lifestyle, such as motherhood or a chaotic work schedule.
The best part is that CoolSculpting® can make a major difference in those areas with stubborn fat that exercise or diets do not seem to have an effect on. Popular areas include the chin, arms and midsection, most commonly called “love handles” and “muffin tops.”
And it’s not just for women. CoolSculpting® is a great option for men looking to reduce the infamous “man boobs” as well as any other pockets of fat that the patient wishes to reduce.
Results are visible within mere weeks and require little, if any, extra maintenance. After about 8-12 weeks, there should be an approximate 20 percent to 25 percent reduction of the fat cell layer in the targeted areas. As the dead fat cells are removed by the body naturally, the final results of the CoolSculpting® procedure are visible and lasting – no more fat cells, no more fat storage. If there is weight gained in the future, it is very likely the fat will be distributed throughout the body, not just the treated areas.
CoolSculpting® does not require follow-up work to be completed at home. There are no continuing exercise plans, nutritional programs or supplemental packages to go through. However our package includes a preliminary consultation, the treatment, and three follow ups. It does, however, require multiple cycles in some cases, if so advised by our medical staff.
Post-treatment symptoms are minimal. Most patients report few if any reactions to the treatment. For those who did report symptoms, the main complaints are mild numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and discomfort.
CoolSculpting® is a great alternative to liposuction. Unlike CoolSculpting®, liposuction requires anesthesia, going under the knife, and may require a hospital stay. It definitely requires that patients take some time off to recover and liposuction is also the less cost-effective option of the two. Liposuction requires more after care, lymphatic massage, compressive girdles and stockings.
The total cost of a CoolSculpting® procedure depends on the areas being treated, the number of cycles required and what the patient aims to achieve. To better determine the overall price of the procedure, make sure to create an individualized plan with our specialists.
It’s important to remember that everyone’s experience is different. For more accurate expectations, contact us today to help you determine if CoolSculpting® in Hallandale at Om’echaye is right for you.

Frequently Asked Questions
QUESTION: Am I a good candidate?
ANSWER: Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. Unlike gastric bypass surgery, the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Request a one-on-one consultation with us to determine if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.
QUESTION: How much does the CoolSculpting procedure cost?
ANSWER: The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. We will help create a customized treatment plan, in person, that’s tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
QUESTION: How long is each session? How many sessions will I need?
ANSWER: We will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting session will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. We may schedule additional sessions in order to meet your goals.
QUESTION: Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?
ANSWER: Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), your body processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
QUESTION: What does it feel like?
ANSWER: As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.
QUESTION: Is the CoolSculpting procedure safe?
ANSWER: The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the flank (love handles), abdomen, and thigh. With over one million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.
QUESTION: Are there any side effects?
ANSWER: During the procedure you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or discomfort. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and pain. Rare side effects may also occur. The CoolSculpting procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. The CoolSculpting procedure is not a treatment for obesity. As with any medical procedure, ask us if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.
QUESTION: Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?
ANSWER: Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Often times, patients return to work after their CoolSculpting session is over.
QUESTION: When will I see results?
ANSWER: You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.
QUESTION: Do I need to take special supplements or follow a strict diet and exercise program?
ANSWER: No supplements or pills are required and you do not have to adopt new diet and exercise habits. Many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after their CoolSculpting treatment. It is as if they get a second lease on their body and want to start anew again by taking even better care of themselves.
QUESTION: What happens if I gain weight down the road?
ANSWER: Many people, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting procedure, take even better care of themselves. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas.1
