Coolsculpting is not a treatment for weight loss and is not suitable for large areas of fat.
The technique involves a process known as cryolipolysis, which describes lowering the temperature of fat cells so ice crystals form and thereby cause the fat cells to burst and this reduces the fat in the area being treated. The broken down fat is naturally processed as it would be in a diet.
The treatment is performed as a lunchtime procedure with the application of specialized freezing pads, measured to the dimensions of the areas where fat is removed.
What is the aim of Coolsculpting ?
To naturally and modestly reshape your body by removing unwanted and resistant pockets of fat through a process known as cryolipolysis. This otherwise known as fat freezing.
How long will the results last?
Interestingly, we all have a set number of fat depositing cells throughout our life. These calls are called adipocytes.
This means the results from cryolipolysis will last forever if your weight remains stable.
If you do gain weight following cryolipolysis, the area in which you have had the treatment will be protected to a degree from fat deposits as a proportion of the adipocytes will have been removed.
However, with weight gain, areas of non-treatment may deposit more of this fat. The fat has to be deposited somewhere in our bodies if our calorie intake exceeds calories burned.
Weight gain and weight loss will therefore effect the results of cryolipolysis so it is important to have a stable plateaued weight prior to and following treatment .
You will have pretreatment photographs and weights taken and at three months these will be repeated.
What happens on the day of treatment?
Prior to the day of treatment you would have had a full consultation with Dr Rory who will assess your particular case and advise if you are a good candidate.
If you are suitable, the areas to be treated are measured, marked and the treatment plan is outlined. Detailed photographs from multiple angles are taken and you are weighed.
For the treatment, this is performed in the luxurious state of the art treatment rooms. Suction applicators are applied to the areas of unwanted fat and the temperature is lowered. There are protective antifreeze pads to protect the skin and treatment per area lasts thirty to forty minutes. Once the applicator is removed firm massage is applied to the area. This is mildly uncomfortable.
This process is then repeated for any other areas chosen for treatment. The length of the coolsculpting session depends on the number of areas being treated. Sessions can be split over time.
You can relax whilst the treatment is being perfomed, reading, working or watching the television.
Once finished, and you are feeling comfortable, the team will then allow you to be discharged.
How long will treatment take?
This depends on the number of areas being treated, each areas treatment takes approximately forty five minutes.
Will the procedure be painful?
No, one of the primary aims of any procedure performed by Dr Rory is to create a pain free experience. The main sensation you will feel is that of mild pressure and cold.
When the applicator is removed, firm massage is applied to the area which is mildly uncomfortable.
What is the recovery period?
There is no recovery period for coolsculpting as there is no downtime.
There will be some tenderness and swelling in the treated area and perhaps some discomfort on movement but this does not effect normal activities.
What should I consider when recovering from the procedure?
There will be some tenderness and swelling in the treated area which lasts for approximately a week. Sometimes small bruises may appear.
Results will be apparent at six weeks but final results are at three months. Repeated sessions may be necessary.
What is the cost of the coolsculpting?
The cost of the procedure depends on the numbers of areas treated but starts at 2,500 AED (excluding VAT) for one area.
The final cost is determined on a case by case basis dependent on complexity and additional procedures. Combination treatments will lower the price of individual treatments if done together.
A full no-commitment consultation with Dr Rory will provide all the necessary details for your particular case.
What are the risks ?
These include some discomfort, degrees of asymmetry, prolonged swelling and unevenness.
What is the follow up after the procedure?
Typically it involves seeing the team a six weeks after treatment for a check, then at three months.
Who is involved in my care?
Dr Rory is the primary physician in charge of all your care, plans and follow up.
Coolsculpting is however conducted by highly qualified and experienced coolsculpting technicians who have been trained to an exceptionally high standard. This includes photography and markings prior to treatment.
Once the coolsculpting treatment has been perfomed Dr Rory is available for you as your on-call doctor. He will provide you with contact details and will be available for you. If you have any questions or concerns at any time he is available to support you.

Thank you so much Dr. Rory, I will honestly recommend you to all my friends and definitely will come back!
Dr Rory is not only a gentleman but a true professional. His surgical approach and results are of the highest standard. In addition, his bedside manner and dedication to his patients is a welcomed change in an already saturated mediocre market.

I recently had surgery (4weeks ago) with Dr Rory and from the moment I met him I felt in safe hands no question was too silly or too small!! Even on the day of surgery his calm, professional manor put me at ease even though I was very nervous!!
After having a very bad experience before I did lots and lots of research and I would have no doubt recommending Dr Rory to anyone that was looking for an amazing surgeon.
I would never recommend anyone else, his professionalism, knowledge, experience are all spot on and would not trust anyone else in Dubai. He is also a great person and takes the time to listen and adjust his approach based on your needs.
I had been considering Rhinoplasty & Breast Augmentation surgery in Dubai for quite a while, I visited a number of surgeons but the one person that I was eager to meet was Dr Rory, not only had I heard great things about him, I had been left a little dubious about other surgeons I had met here and just never felt comfortable enough to make the decision to book the surgery and go ahead…. I genuinely cannot recommend Dr Rory enough!
After meeting a few other surgeons, I was not sure I would proceed with my surgery in Dubai. Then I was referred to Dr. Rory from a friend and this changed my mind after the first consultation.
He is professional, patient, and made me feel comfortable and confident in every decision along the way. I am ecstatic with my results and thankful for the expertise of Dr. Rory!
