Our Certified CoolSculpting Specialist

Coolsculpting Certified PracticeRunning our CoolSculpting department is Certified CoolSculpting Specialist Robert Gleason, who has been performing CoolSculpting since 2011. Since earning his initial certification by completing the manufacturer’s training program, Robert has acquired a great deal of experience in developing CoolSculpting treatment plans. In that time, he has engineered the ideal patient experience, with no surprises from consultation through treatment and follow-ups.

Robert has treated more than 8,000 CoolSculpting patients, listening to each person’s aesthetic goals and developing a custom treatment plan to reach them. In all, he has performed more than 17,000 CoolSculpting treatments, which has given him a wealth of knowledge and experience beyond any other practice in San Diego. He’s happy to put that experience to good use by delivering beautiful results through freezing fat and body contouring.

Why Choose CoolSculpting?

It’s inevitable that the average person will develop unwanted pockets of fat that are seemingly impossible to conquer through diet and exercise. CoolSculpting is a simple solution that has helped countless women and men gain the thinner, trimmer body contours and profile they desire without surgery.

Because we are one of the largest CoolSculpting practices in San Diego, featuring the full range of CoolSculpting applicators, we can effectively treat multiple areas of the body:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks (love handles)
  • Back
  • Bra fat
  • Armpits (front and back)
  • Inner arms
  • Inner & outer thighs
  • Chin
  • Buttock (banana roll)
  • Chest (gynecomastia)
  • Lateral chest wall
  • Knees
  • Pelvis

Your first step will be a detailed complimentary consultation with Robert. He will listen to you, assess your goals, educate you about the CoolSculpting procedure and develop an individual treatment plan specifically for you. If more extreme fat reduction is necessary, he may refer you to Dr. Chaffoo to determine whether liposuction or even a tummy tuck is better suited to your needs.

A Dedicated, Experienced Physician

Few plastic surgeons boast triple board certification. The fact that La Jolla plastic surgeon Dr. Chaffoo is a member of this elite group demonstrates his commitment to excellence. Although CoolSculpting is non-surgical, it is still considered a medical procedure, as well as an aesthetic procedure that requires an artistic eye.

Additionally, thanks to our enduring commitment to high-quality CoolSculpting results, manufacturer ZELTIQ® has named La Jolla Skin a Premier Crystal CoolSculpting practice. By choosing Dr. Chaffoo’s practice for CoolSculpting, you can be assured of quality care as well as the peace of mind that comes from knowing your treatment is under the direction of a highly qualified and skilled physician.

The CoolSculpting Procedure

CoolSculpting is cleared by the FDA as a safe and effective treatment for reducing fat on the abdomen — the areas typically referred to as love handles or muffin tops — and the thighs. During the treatment, a gel pad is applied to the treatment area followed by the CoolSculpting applicator. The applicator for the midsection uses gentle suction to draw the skin and underlying tissue up into the cooling area. The thigh applicator, designed specifically for “non-pinchable” areas of fat, is strapped around the leg with cooling plates pressed firmly against the skin.

Using a carefully monitored temperature that affects fat but does not damage surrounding tissue, the device cools fat cells to a point at which they become damaged and die.1 The patient will experience a sensation of firm pressure, and at first the area may feel cold until the body tissues adjust to the temperature change. During the procedure, which may last from 35 minutes to 3 hours, depending on the number and location of the treatment areas and whether the procedure incorporates enhancements such as DualSculpting or CoolAdvantage, the patient can lean back and relax, read, or listen to music.

Questions about any aspect of the treatment? Our CoolSculpting FAQ page may be able to provide some further insight.

Applicators For Many Treatment Areas

Coolsculpting applicatorWhile the CoolSculpting treatment itself proceeds in essentially the same manner no matter what stubborn fat we are targeting, there are some adjustments that need to be made for the specific region of the body. For example, the abdomen is a larger surface area than the chin, of course. Additionally, some areas of fat are “pinchable” (e.g., back fat), while others are not (e.g., inner thigh fat).

The CoolSculpting device uses a variety of applicators to adjust for these differences and deliver an equally effective result for any targeted area of the body.

APPLICATORS WE OFFER

  • CoolAdvantage
  • CoolAdvantagePlus
  • CoolMini
  • CoolSmoothPro
  • CoolMax
  • CoolCore
  • CoolFit
  • CoolCurve
  • CoolCurve+

 CoolAdvantage: In & Out in 30 Minutes

For patients looking to treat the abdomen, flanks, or inner thighs, our CoolAdvantage applicator cuts the treatment time nearly in half, from an hour down to just 35 minutes. There’s an enhanced cup design that allows us to treat larger areas more efficiently, without sacrificing what matters most: your comfort and safety.2

CoolMini for Double Chins

In particular, the accumulation of fat under the chin — called submental fat — is one of the most common aesthetic concerns for both men and women. A double chin can be caused by genetic factors or age and, like other stubborn pockets of fat, can’t be reduced simply through changing your eating habits or exercising. The CoolMini applicator is uniquely designed to treat double chins and other small areas where fat accumulates, such as the knees or under the arms. Cleared by the FDA, the applicator’s size and curved shape fits snuggly under the chin and reduces fat using the same groundbreaking technology used to contour larger areas of the body.

The CoolMini applicator is the only noninvasive treatment for double chins that reduces fat without the downtime or excessive swelling seen with other procedures.

DualSculpting: 2 Machines Means Faster Treatments

Patients who wish to have 2 areas treated (e.g., both flanks) can do so in half the typical time, because we have 2 CoolSculpting machines that can operate simultaneously. This means we are able to treat both sides of the body at the same time, which gets you in and out quicker, so you can get back to your day sooner.

Recovery and Results

Women and men can typically return to normal activities immediately following a CoolSculpting treatment, although patient experiences vary. Many people have CoolSculpting during their lunch hours and return to work the same day. Some redness, swelling or bruising may follow the procedure, along with some numbness or tingling, but these effects are temporary.

Individual experiences vary after CoolSculpting treatments. A thinner appearance typically begins to become visible as soon as 3 weeks after treatment and continues to reveal itself during the following few months. A clinical study found that “treatment resulted in a normalized fat layer reduction of 20.4% at 2 months and 25.5% at 6 months after treatment.”3
