Like any cosmetic treatment, the cost of a CoolSculpting body contouring is going to depend on several factors that are unique for each individual patient.
For patients that are interested in CoolSculpting, it is recommended to book a consultation with a certified CoolSculpting practitioner, most often working out of a dermatologist or plastic surgeon’s office, to discuss your desired results.
They will be able to discuss your treatment options as well as what you can expect to see as far as your end results and then come up with the price.
This price is going to be based on the area of the body being treated, what the desired results are, how many treatments will be required and what your current body composition is.
CoolSculpting is drastically less expensive than more invasive surgical procedures such as Liposuction, however it is still going to cost several hundred to a couple of thousand dollars depending on the patient and the practitioner performing the procedure.
CoolSculpting is considered to be a cosmetic and elective treatment that patients can have done to improve the way they look and increase their confidence.
For this reason, insurance companies will typically not cover CoolSculpting treatments, or any other body contouring procedure as it doesn’t provide a health benefit that they deem necessary for coverage.
It is still worth checking with your insurance provider to see exactly what your insurance coverage is for and if there is any way even a portion of the CoolSculpting treatment can be covered.
During your CoolSculpting consultation you can discuss payment policies with your practitioner and get a quote for the treatment that you can provide to your insurance company to see what they will say.
But generally speaking, they won’t cover any of the procedures and you will be responsible for covering the full cost out of your pocket.
Your first visit to a clinic that offers CoolSculpting is going to be a consultation appointment.
This will be the doctor or practitioner’s opportunity to ask you the standard medical questions to ensure that you have no medical conditions that would prevent you from being a good candidate for the treatment.
They will also want to learn why you are looking to have CoolSculpting done, what areas you want treated and what your overall health and lifestyle is to be able to maintain the results from your treatment.
You will also be able to ask any questions you have about CoolSculpting to understand how the procedure works, any risks or potential side effects that you need to be aware of and what the results are that you can expect at the end of the process.
You and your practitioner can also discuss the need for additional treatments, the cost of your treatment plan, how to prepare for your appointment and anything you need to know following your treatment.

CoolSculpting is a body contouring treatment option that helps patients to get rid of pockets of stubborn body fat that they haven’t been able to eliminate through other methods like diet and exercise.
While there are no hard and fast requirements, CoolSculpting is not intended or designed to be used on patients looking to lose weight or large amounts of body fat. CoolSculpting works best when patients are in reasonably good physical shape, with a healthy, active lifestyle.
The results of CoolSculpting are permanent in that it kills off and eliminates the targeted fat cells, but it doesn’t prevent new ones from forming or any remaining fat cells from expanding, should patients not maintain a healthy lifestyle following the treatment.
A certified CoolSculpting practitioner, like Jane Weston, will want to complete a physical assessment on the patient prior to starting treatment to ensure that there are no conflicts with their current physical state that could cause complications or increase any risks associated with the treatment.
