Freeze away fat with nonsurgical CoolSculpting. Since fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues, CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen) and then die. Over time, the body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted, trimmer appearance. At Charles P. Virden, MD in Reno, Nevada we will develop a customized CoolSculpting treatment plan that addresses each patient's problem areas, which may include additional sessions may further enhance the results. The individualized treatment plan will be tailored by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Charles Virden to the patient's body, goals, and budget. The CoolSculpting procedure is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the flank (love handles), abdomen, and thighs. CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate fat that is resistant to diet and exercise without surgery. CoolSculpting results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so patients look and feel great from every angle. With more than 1 million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for nonsurgical fat reduction.
"I came in from out of state to have my procedures done with Dr. Virden. He is extremely personable, knowledgeable and confident in what he does. On the day of my pre-op, as I was flying into Reno, my flights were diverted and delayed and I didn't get in until late. Dr, Virden went above and beyond to meet with me outside of normal office hours to make sure I was ready and confident for surgery the next morning. He is caring and attentive and checked in on me over the weekend after the surgery. I'm extremely happy with my results. My breasts look amazing and my tummy flat! I have had minimal pain after surgery and I attribute that to having an extremely skilled surgeon. I highly recommend Dr. Virden!"- Google User / Google / Nov 22, 2016
"Prior to having Dr Virden correct 2 botched surgeries I had given up on all hope of looking normal. The plastic surgeon that did my previous surgeries had me on a pump for a year then made me pay full price for a revision that was worse. Dr. Virden never had a doubt he could fix it and that gave me hope. I can honestly say I had given up on anyone fixing it, but he did! I am 3 weeks out from surgery and I feel like I did in my 20's! Seriously this isn't an exaggeration. I would refer my friends and family to Dr. Virden and his staff. His positive attitude and professional but kind bedside manner is comforting. I honestly can't say enough about my experience and how happy I am. If you're thinking about changing something please talk to him first. After all I have been through I can honestly say he comes through and has an eye for detail. Thank you Dr. Virden and staff for giving me a new outlook on myself."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Sep 12, 2019
"I've been going to see Leah S. for a few years now for a variety of things and she's the absolute best! I live in NYC and always make it point to book an appointment whenever I go back to visit family in Tahoe. She's incredibly knowledgeable, makes you feel comfortable and all her work is amazing. I would highly recommend Leah and even got a few friends and family members to start seeing her!"- K.O. / Google / Aug 27, 2019
"I saw Aleah Hartung the P.A. In Dr Virdens office for a skin tag removal. I didn’t have to wait months to get in to see her as if I had to see a dermatologist in any other office. I got in, in less than a week. Her technique was amazing, I didn’t feel a thing. I was very impressed. I highly recommend anyone who needs their skin looked at for any suspicious lesions, moles or any skin concerns."- N.T. / Google / Aug 07, 2019

Good candidates have noticeable bulges of fat in certain areas they’d like to get rid of without the time and expense of surgical liposuction. Request a one-on-one consultation with us to determine if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you. The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those:
- Who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise
- Who are not obese or looking for a weight loss solution
- Who want to reduce fat without surgery
- Who do not have cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria
What to Expect
It’s easy to sit back, relax and say goodbye to stubborn fat. The length of a CoolSculpting session will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. Additional sessions may be recommended to meet the patient's goals. After the area(s) to be treated are selected, the device is positioned on the body and controlled cooling is applied. As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, patients will feel pressure and intense cold, but this soon dissipates. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment. During the procedure, patients may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness, or discomfort. The CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is completely nonsurgical, so patients can typically return to work and normal activities immediately. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, and pain.
In the weeks and months following the procedure, the body naturally processes the crystallized (frozen) fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good. Patients may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after their treatment and will experience the most dramatic results after two months, but the body will still flush out fat cells for up to 4 – 6 months after treatment. Many people, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting procedure, take even better care of themselves. However, if patients who do gain weight, they will usually gain it evenly all over their body, not just in the treated areas.
