A healthy diet and exercise are often recommended for weight loss or maintaining your desired weight. Unfortunately, sometimes that is not enough. For some patients, diet and exercise alone cannot remove an unwanted pouch or love handles. Fat reduction procedures can help remove unwanted pockets of fat through a few simple treatments. Now, patients searching for a CoolSculpting clinic can turn to Dr. Pepple of Silverado Medical & Aesthetic Clinic in Calgary, AB.


Losing weight does not equal fat loss. Many people assume when they lose pounds and inches that the fat itself has disappeared too. The goals of diet and exercise plans include weight loss, getting into shape, and living a healthier lifestyle. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is a great idea, but you cannot get rid of the fat cells on your own.

Actually, the fat cells still exist after weight loss, they just shrink or drain. The body stores fat cells. The deflated fat cells remain lurking and waiting beneath the skin. When an individual gains weight, the same fat cells expand again.

Patients who are at their ideal body weight have fat cells. Unfortunately, the ideal weight does not mean a patient has the ideal body shape. Love handles, muffin tops, and banana rolls sound cute, but they are still unwanted. CoolSculpting and other fat reduction procedures are necessary to permanently remove unwanted fat cells from the body.


CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, non-invasive fat reduction treatment. The system precisely targets and destroys fat cells in a targeted area. To begin the treatment, a gel pad and applicator are placed on the treatment site. The system freezes fat cells in the area without harming the surrounding tissues. After the cells are frozen, the body goes through changes before naturally eliminating the cells. The process takes two to three months. During this period, the fat cells die and are removed from the body naturally. Once destroyed and eliminated, the fat cells are gone forever. The cells will not regrow in the same area. With CoolSculpting, the fat cells are physically removed from the body permanently. Rather than just shrinking as with weight loss, the cells are eliminated so they cannot return.

CoolSculpting treatments are customized for individual patients. The type of applicator, applicator placement, and the number of treatments vary from patient to patient. Treatment plans are developed based on the treatment area, the amount of fat to be removed, and the desired results. CoolSculpting treatments are non-invasive and are performed in the office. No anesthesia is needed.

With several safety features, patients enjoy the benefits of effective treatment without the risks of invasive surgery. The cooling mechanism is precisely controlled to gently treat the targeted fat cells under the skin. Patients may experience a cooling sensation during the treatment as the fat is frozen. With built-in safety features, the skin is prevented from getting too cold. CoolSculpting treatments are performed only under the guidance of our licensed professional. Clinicians undergo training and certification to ensure quality care and treatment.

Since the procedure is non-invasive, patients do not have to worry about scarring, downtime, or an extended recovery period. Patients can have the procedure done during the day and then return to their normal routines. Temporary side effects are generally mild but may include swelling, redness, bruising, or tenderness at the treatment site. Any lingering discomfort should subside within a day or two.


Fat reduction procedures are not designed to replace healthy living. With over 5 million procedures performed around the world, CoolSculpting is a popular treatment. It is an effective, non-surgical treatment. This treatment successfully and safely removes unwanted fat cells from the targeted areas. Patients achieve noticeable, lasting results. Fat cells in the treated area are reduced by 20-25%.

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
