Understanding Fat Reduction

Exercise and healthy eating cannot change the way a person’s body stores fat. The human body commonly stores fat in one specific region which is unresponsive to fat

reduction techniques such as diet and exercise. Unfortunately, in many cases, exercise cannot address the problem of fat cells.

Weight reduction or weight gain does not make an impact as fat cells cannot be eliminated but only increase or decrease in volume. This means that when a person puts on weight, the fat cells become enlarged, and these cells shrink upon weight reduction.

Fat cells do not get eliminated, and as a result, we have what is known as “stubborn fat.” Consequently, an individual can reduce weight but this will not alter the fact that they have more fat cells in their love handles (flanks), thighs, abdomen, and other areas.

This is where CoolSculpting enters as a reliable non-surgical technique that can freeze the fat cells and eliminate them effectively. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other towns and cities in this region of The Golden State.


CoolSculpting is based on the cryolipolysis technology which can freeze the fat cells in a particular area without damage to the surrounding healthy tissue. Fat cells respond quickly to cold temperatures, and will get frozen with CoolSculpting process, while the healthy surrounding cells remain unaffected.

The frozen fat cells will eventually disintegrate, and the patient will be able to lose fat in the treated sites. This elimination of fat cells leads to a sculpted and slimmer figure.

A person can still gain weight after CoolSculpting, which depends on their diet, lifestyle, and personal health. However, the difference is that the now additional weight gain will be distributed throughout the body in a more even manner instead of accumulating in the treated site.

CoolSculpting removes fat cells in the treatment area by freezing these cells permanently. In the next many weeks, the body will process the frozen fat cells naturally removing them for good.

CoolSculpting means no more stubborn fat! The FDA has cleared the CoolSculpting procedure for fat reduction. The procedure is non-invasive, safe and effective with no requirement for anesthesia.

Permanent Outcomes

CoolSculpting has been clinically proven to create permanent outcomes. When the fat cells in the treatment area are frozen using the cryolipolysis technology, they die. The natural response of the body is to eliminate these dead cells through its own process of removal.

The results are not temporary as the fat cells permanently destroyed and removed from the body. These fat cells are then gone for good. Any site that undergoes treatment will have a permanent decrease in the number of fat cells. However, one question still remains: Will this process help the patient attain a slimmer body?

CoolSculpting removes some fat cells from the body permanently which means that these cells cannot be restored. But the fat cells that remain can still become larger if the patient puts on weight. If the patient is not careful about weight management, the remaining fat cells could grow more voluminous and give them a more bulky body shape.  

Regardless, CoolSculpting treatments do cause a reduction in the number of fat cells. This means that the patient will still be more slender than if they had not received this treatment.

Have a Beach-Ready Body by Summer

http://freezethefatbeverlyhills.com/about-us/Everyone wants to look like those Baywatch stars right!? Or how they look in Fast and Furious or Beverly Hills 90210, and the list just continues!

Stubborn fat deposits may prevent you from wearing your favorite body-hugging clothes or this summer’s hottest swimwear. At times, the problem areas will just not resolve even with rigorous exercise and a well-balanced diet.

CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared, non-surgical procedure that targets and removes stubborn fat for a sleeker, smoother body contour. CoolSculpting can successfully treat muffin tops or love handles, thick upper arms and pinchable outer and inner thigh fat. After the treatment, the eliminated fat cells will not return.

Motykie Medical Spa, led by Dr. Gary Motykie, provides CoolSculpting to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding locations.

What It Is

CoolSculpting delivers targeted and controlled cooling with individualized treatments using a comfortable applicator to precisely and effectively freeze the fat cells beneath the skin. The fat cells that receive the treatment are crystallized or frozen, and eventually die off. After some time, the body processes the fat and removes the cells through natural processes. This creates a sleeker body contour.

The fat cells in the treatment site usually decrease visibly after treatment. These cells are naturally processed and removed by the body. Therefore, they will not transfer to another location in the body.

How It Works

During the CoolSculpting procedure, the provider will apply a gel pad and an applicator to the treatment area where the patient wants to lose fat. The applicator will provide controlled cooling to the targeted fat cells for about 40 to 50 minutes per treatment session.

The CoolSculpting system has a wide array of applicators that are suitable for various body shapes and sizes. These applicators can treat many areas of the body for ideal outcomes.

A significant benefit of CoolSculpting, other than the outcomes, is that there is no downtime unlike procedures that are more invasive, such as liposuction. Patients can read or even take a nap during a treatment session. They can also resume normal activities such as exercise right after treatment. Many clients only require 1 to 2 treatments.

However, some may need a third session for optimal results. The outcomes of CoolSculpting are most visible in around 2 to 3 months after the procedure.

Factors to Consider

For ideal results from CoolSculpting, consider the following factors:

  • Establish whether you are a suitable candidate. CoolSculpting provides the excellent outcomes for those who are within their ideal weight range and physically fit but have slight extra fat in specific areas.
  • Ensure your stubborn fat pockets can be treated. CoolSculpting works most effectively on the back/flanks, upper arms, abdomen, chin, and inner and outer thighs.
  • Do not confuse CoolSculpting with a weight-loss treatment. CoolSculpting must never be used to address obesity or as a substitute for a weight-loss program.

Choosing a Provider

Things to keep in mind when researching where to receive CoolSculpting treatment:

  • Ensure the CoolSculpting treatment provider is certified and experienced in the procedure.
  • Be cautious of deals that seem unreal. Ensure that the “fat-freezing” technique that is being offered is the FDA-cleared CoolSculpting.
  • Make sure that the medical spa staff comprises registered nurses working under doctors’ supervision.

Your CoolSculpting Body Contouring Consultation

CoolSculpting is a unique fat reduction body contouring treatment that involves the use of a controlled cooling process to eliminate stubborn fat deposits in targeted areas of the body. It is the only FDA cleared non-invasive body contouring procedure that makes use of an innovative cooling technique. gdsg

A detailed consultation process will precede the CoolSculpting treatment. During this consultation, the provider will explain all aspects of the procedure, how it may help the patient to lose fat, and how many treatment sessions may be required to meet the patient’s aesthetic needs.

Reliable, astute, and board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding communities.

Consultation with the Clinician

The patient will have a detailed one-on-one meeting with a trained CoolSculpting clinician as part of the pre-operative consultation process. The clinician is a specialized treatment provider with experience in CoolSculpting procedure.

The patient should feel free to ask questions about the CoolSculpting technology and how the procedure helps to freeze the fat and eliminate unwanted fat cells. The clinician will address all the doubts and concerns of the patient about the CoolSculpting procedure.

Health Evaluation

The treatment provider will assess the patient’s general health condition and fitness to undergo CoolSculpting. They will check the patient’s body weight and examine the fat bulges in specific areas. As every individual’s body is different, the provider will create a CoolSculpting treatment plan keeping in mind the unique anatomical needs of the patient.

The provider will assess the affected areas to determine the skin elasticity and skin type. Appropriate CoolSculpting devices will be chosen depending on the location of the fat bulges. In certain cases, CoolSculpting in conjunction with other procedures may be recommended to treat specific areas such as calves, buttocks, thighs, backs, chin or abdomen.

Determining Aesthetic Goals

The treatment provider will try and understand the patient’s personal aesthetic requirements, goals and aspirations. They will incorporate this feedback into their customized CoolSculpting treatment plan. They will inform the patient at the outset that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment, but a fat reduction procedure. They will educate the patient about the strengths and limitations of CoolSculpting so that they can have realistic expectations from the procedure and make the right decision.

During the consultation, the provider may also present CoolSculpting before and after photos of previous patients who have undergone the same treatment. They may also show testimonials of past patients to reassure the patient about the experience of others with CoolSculpting.

Personalized Treatment Plan

The treatment provider will recommend a customized treatment plan based on the patient’s examination and feedback during the detailed consultation. The customized plan is tailored to meet the unique needs of the patient in the best possible manner. The patient will be explained about the estimated number of treatment sessions and the duration of each such session.

What to Expect During CoolSculpting?

What to Expect During CoolSculpting? | Beverly Hills Medical SpaCoolSculpting is one of the most popular non-invasive body contouring procedures in the US today. This FDA cleared procedure is designed to freeze the fat cells in targeted areas of the body and cause their gradual elimination. Fat bulges in the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, flanks, breasts, back, and chin can be reduced with CoolSculpting.

During the initial consultation, the treatment provider will explain the benefits of CoolSculpting and discuss how the procedure will be performed.

They will also inform how this technique enables a patient to lose fat without any cuts, incisions, injections, or medication. Committed, tremendous, and board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding communities and cities in this part of the nation.  


Customized Treatment Plan

The CoolSculpting provider will closely work with the patient to create a customized fat reduction plan tailored to their needs. Some patients may only require a single office visit to achieve their body contouring goals. Multiple CoolSculpting applicators are available, which may be used for different areas to create safe and effective fat reduction.

Many patients may want to have more substantive fat elimination, and their customized treatment plan will include multiple treatment sessions. For instance, if the patient wants to freeze the fat off their inner and outer thighs, and also get rid of the muffin top, they may go through two or three treatment sessions to address each body area separately. With advanced CoolSculpting applicators, each treatment session may only last for about 40 minutes.


Experience During the Treatment

Unlike surgery or heat and laser based procedures, CoolSculpting is a more gentle technique, where the patient can lose fat in a completely comfortable, non-invasive way. The procedure involves a unique cooling process, where controlled cooling will be delivered through an applicator to freeze the unwanted fat cells.

Initially, the patient may feel a little chilly, but this feeling will quickly subside as the area to be treated becomes numb. The applicator will typically involve a vacuum to draw fatty tissue into the applicator cup. Therefore, the patient is also likely to experience mild pulling, tugging and pinching in the affected sites.

The procedure will cause no pain and will not require anesthesia. Many patients, in fact, read, watch TV, surf the Internet or even take a nap during the treatment sessions. The provider will encourage them to do what makes them feel more comfortable while the treatment is in progress.



CoolSculpting involves no specific recovery process or downtime, and most patients can simply return to their normal routine or go back to work after the treatment session. However, some of the mild and temporary side effects following the treatment may include redness, swelling, bruising, blanching, firmness, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching or sensitivity in the treated sites.

If CoolSculpting has been performed to treat fat tissue in the submental region under the chin, some patients may experience a sensation of fullness in the back of the throat. Patients will usually not require any specific treatment, and the side effects will resolve quickly.

Experienced and accomplished plastic surgeon Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and other neighborhoods and suburbs in this part of the state for CoolSculpting.

Photo of jane j.“When you go to a med spa you want three things  :

1.  a beautiful tranquil spa environment
2.  gracious staff

Complimentary wine helps too, but that’s more icing than cake.  considering the location (los angeles) and the economy (shitty), we’ll usually settle for 1 out of 3!  sometimes you get crazy lucky and hit all 3.  THAT was my experience at motykie med spa.  given the chi-chi factor of its location, i wasn’t surprised to step into a lounge with pristine white barcelona-inspired seating and gleaming chrome.  what WAS a surprise was the friendliness of the staff.  everyone was friendly and nice, without the air of snobbishness that usually permeates sunset.

Brooke, the nurse who performed my service (micro botox), was AMAZING.  she was very warm and engaging, someone you immediately feel comfortable with.  i very much appreciated the fact that she did not in any way try to sell me on other products or services, but she also did not make me feel bad for being broke.  again, it’s a crap economy so i can only indulge in these treatments when there’s a great special or discount.  i’ve been to other places that will make you feel like a slimy creature of undetermined origin for having the audacity to buy anything on sale, so her kindness and non-pushiness was both incredible and respectful.

Last, but not least, the service was comfortable and efficient.

I will definitely be back!”
