Unwanted fat removal in Cincinnati

At Amy Brenner MD & Associates, we regularly meet men and women that are dissatisfied with look of their bodies. Many of our patients are healthy individuals in a normal body weight range, but even with diet and exercise they struggle to lose their love handles or belly fat. It’s important to know this accumulation of body fat may be out of your control.



Excess body fat can be driven by a variety of factors – age, hormones, lifestyle and life in general. For example, as we age our hormone levels, especially estrogen and testosterone, decrease which causes fat cells to expand and areas of the body to expand. We will develop a customized CoolSculpting® treatment plan that addresses your problem areas.

How does CoolSculpting® work?

Featuring revolutionary Cryolipolysis® technology, CoolSculpting® in Cincinnati gently targets fat cells underneath the skin while keeping surrounding tissues safe. During a typical CoolSculpting® treatment, a handheld device is placed on treated areas and the controlled cooling is administered, freezing underlying fat. These cells are then permanently disabled and are gradually removed by the body through natural processes.

Process & Results

Procedure Process

Your CoolSculpting® provider will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. All CoolSculpting® treatments are performed by Certified CoolSculpting® Specialists and medically supervised by our physicians.



The effects are not instantaneous, but they are long lasting. You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment. Most patients see the most dramatic results after *two to three months.

Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 Step 4 Step 5 Step 6 Step 7 Step 8
Step 1

The Consultation

Before your treatment, you will be weighed and measured. Our certified CoolSculpting® specialists will pinch areas of unwanted fat to determine if the area can be treated with CoolSculpting®. Initial photos will be taken of the area(s) to be treated.

Step 2

Mark & Measure

Your CoolSculpting® specialist will mark and measure the treated areas to determine which CoolSculpting® applicator is best suited for you. At Amy Brenner MD and Associates , we use all of the available updated CoolSculpting® applicators to offer the most versatile fat eliminating treatments.

Step 3

Place the gel Sheet

After we determine the areas and applicators, a gel sheet will be placed on the treatment area to protect your skin from the cooling technology. After, the treatment applicator cup will be placed over the stubborn fat.

Step 4

Wait for 35 – 75 minutes

Over a duration of 35-75 minutes (depending on area treated) , the new and improved CoolSculpting® applicator will use gentle suction to draw your fat tissue into the cooling cups which isolates the fat. If treating the outer thighs (75 minutes) , the applicator is positioned with velcro straps to ensure the treatment is delivered to the desired area.

Step 5

No Anesthesia Required

During the first 1-10 minutes, you may feel temporary discomfort because of the suction, pressure, and cooling. After that time, CoolSculpting® in Cincinnati is generally very well tolerated by our patients. No topical or general anesthesia is needed.

Step 6

Relax during the treatment

Depending on what area is being treated, you may be positioned lying flat or sitting up. Most patients read, listen to music, work on their computer, or simply sit back and relax and watch a movie or TV. Some patients opt to have other aesthetic procedures performed at the same time.

Step 7

Massage the Frozen Fat

Once the treatment cup is removed, your skin will be red, cold, and firm. The treated area is massaged with the Z wave that may enhance your results even further.* We are the first and only practice in the area to offer CoolSculpting® PLus (CoolSculpting® PLUS Z wave) and we are seeing an enhanced effect.

Step 8

Fat is removed by the body

Once the treated fat cells are frozen, they die and are naturally processed and removed by the body. Repeat treatments may be performed for additional fat reduction.

Add The Z Wave to your CoolSculpting®
treatment to improve your results.


What is the Z Wave?

The Z Wave is high-energy radial shockwaves originally developed to tighten skin and improve the appearance of cellulite. Combining fat freezing with Z wave therapy is clinically shown to improve CoolSculpting® results, almost doubling the amount of fat reduction following a CoolSculpting® treatment in Cincinnati. In addition, the Z wave reduces post-procedure discomfort and drastically increases the rate of fat absorption, so CoolSculpting® results are seen sooner.


The wave therapy is scientifically proven to stimulate collagen formation, improve skin elasticity and improve blood flow. While an effective stand-alone treatment, science shows combining Z Wave therapy with other cosmetic treatments, such as CoolSculpting®, can greatly enhance results.


When you upgrade your CoolSculpting® procedure, the Z wave will replace the manual massage that traditionally follows a regular CoolSculpting® treatment. Subsequent treatments of Z wave therapy in the weeks following your CoolSculpting® procedure further enhance your fat reduction results. Z wave can also be used to treat cellulite.

Before & Afters

I attended Dr. Brenner’s CoolSculpting event and learned how this procedure would allow me to lose unwanted fat in areas where diet and exercise hadn’t been effective. I liked that it was non-invasive with no downtime and no pain. I stayed with my normal eating & exercise plan and I lost the bulges in the hip area slowly over 3 months. I’m so thrilled with the results that I’m doing my stomach area next week!! The staff was so helpful and informative. They gave me honest feedback about where I would achieve the best results. Plus they provide a Z-Wave procedure for the treated area. This enhances the results. I highly recommend them!

I had CoolSculpting done at this office and the staff is amazing. I now consider them friends after spending so much time there. CoolSculpting experience was actually fun. No pain involved and *results were exactly what they told me to expect. I did 2 locations and when I asked about more, they told me I didn’t have enough fat for it to be worth doing. Other places would have just taken my money! They’re honest and realistic which is appreciated. I highly recommend!


I eat healthy, exercise somewhat regularly, and am at a healthy weight, BMI and body composition. However, I continued to have these little pockets of fat on my stomach/abdomen and especially my back that no amount of strength training or toning exercises could ever seem to touch. To say that I am EXTREMELY happy with my CoolSculpting results in these areas would be an understatement! I can’t believe the number of people who have commented to me that they can tell I’ve lost weight (not really) or that I look so different and toned…it’s the INCHES I’ve lost with CoolSculpting. My waist is now more defined and I’m not afraid to wear more fitted clothing. Thanks to the CoolSculpting team, I can enjoy my upcoming beach vacation and my daughter’s summer wedding with more confidence.


My CoolSculpting experience has been awesome! From the moment I met my technician I was at ease with the process and her “bedside” manner is the best ever!!! She is both comforting and enthusiastic and is very skilled at the procedure. No matter how much I worked out or ate healthy I could not get the results I wanted to see in my stomach. *I got amazing results with the CoolSculpting procedure and am totally happy with the outcome. I would definitely recommend CoolSculpting and Dr. Amy Brenner’s team to anyone!


After having three pregnancies, one miscarriage, and one very HUGE cyst removed, I was left with a ring of sagging fat skin around the bottom of my belly. I did lots of exercises to get rid of the extra skin and fat, but to no avail. I dieted but the ring of fat stubbornly remained. Finally, after years, I had enough! However, having surgery was out of the question for me. I was invited by my daughter to attend one of the events held at Dr. Brenner's office. There, I was introduced to CoolSculpting. I learned that CoolSculpting didn't involve surgery, nor a lot of time out of my busy schedule and no recovery time in bed! It seemed like a good alternative for me. After a couple of years of hesitation, I had the procedure done at Dr. Amy Brenner's office. I was there for about 2-3 hours and watched T.V. while the machines froze away the fat. I thought, "It is going to take more than one-time application to accomplish the results I want." I was wrong. It did, however, take time for the fat to melt away but it did work! Today I have a flatter belly and the skin even tightened! Best of all I feel great about myself. My only regret was waiting so long to decide to do it. Thank you to all the Staff especially Michelle and Stephanie who were so great attending to me.

I didn't know a lot about CoolSculpting prior to coming in for a consult. This office made me so comfortable with all of their knowledge and how professional they are. They really took the time to explain all of my options to ensure that my expectations would be met. I am so happy I choose this office and recommend it to all of my friends and family! They are a one stop shop for women just like me! You won't be disappointed!


CoolSculpting helped me get rid of my "mommy tummy" with no downtime. So glad I made that decision. Stephanie and Michelle are very knowledgeable and helped keep my mind at ease before, during, and after the procedure. I definitely recommend CoolSculpting!!

Am I a good candidate?

The best candidates for CoolSculpting® are those who are within 30 lbs of their ideal body weight but have areas of fat/noticeable bulges in certain places they would like to get rid of. CoolSculpting® is a great procedure for those who have stubborn fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. Ideal Candidates for CoolSculpting® Patients who have localized fat deposits (e.g., anterior abdominal region, trunk or “love handles,” arms, inner and outer thighs) Patients who are relatively close to their ideal body weight Patients who want a noninvasive procedure Patients who want their clothes to fit better Patients who want to look better in a bathing suit Patients who have realistic expectations Poor Candidates for CoolSculpting CoolSculpting® is not a weight reduction or weight management process. Our practice offers many other alternatives that may be more appropriate if weight loss is desired. Morbidly obese patients Patients without localized fat deposition Patients with poor skin elasticity or tone Patients with excessive scarring or skin conditions such as eczema or dermatitis in the area of intended treatment Patients with unrealistic expectations

What are the side effects?

During the procedure you may experience some tugging, pulling, pinching, numbness or discomfort. Afterwards, most patients do report some redness, swelling and minor discomfort. Many patients state that the discomfort level is similar to a bruise. Occasionally, patients report temporary numbness, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and pain after the procedure. These minor side effects resolve over the next few weeks. Rare side effects may also occur. As with any procedure, some patients are more sensitive than others. For example, for most of our patients, having a Pap smear feels like pressure and minor discomfort. Once in a while, we have a patient who is extremely intolerant to a pelvic exam and reports that it caused her severe pain. In short, everyone has different levels of tolerance to procedures.

Are there any contraindications to CoolSculpting®?

Patients who suffer cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria are not appropriate for CoolSculpting®. CoolSculpting® is not a treatment for obesity.

Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?

Absolutely! That’s one of the main benefits of CoolSculpting®. *You get liposuction results without the downtime and risks. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical and does not require any incisions.

Do I need to take special supplements or follow a strict diet and exercise program?

Additional supplements or pills are NOT required to see the results from your CoolSculpting® procedure. However, many patients feel more motivated to continue their healthy diet and exercise plan after their CoolSculpting® treatment.

What happens if I gain weight or get pregnant down the road?

Many people, after seeing the results from the 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.

How much does the CoolSculpting® procedure cost?

The price for CoolSculpting® procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals.

*Using Z wave in addition to CoolSculpting® has been used in our practice ( and in a clinical study) for an enhanced effect. However, the combination of Z wave with CoolSculpting® has not been evaluated by the FDA. Individual results may vary.
