Over the years different body slimming machines have been tried and tested to non-surgically remove fat. Dr Lanzer was one of the first in Australia to try these options. He initially worked with a radiofrequency device called the Accent. This was featured on the television program- A Current Affair. Later he used ultrasound – (The Ultrashape) to help melt fat. The media also followed his progress on this device.
The CoolShape uses a controlled cooling technology as well as vacuum and LED which effectively targets the fat cells underneath the skin. These fat cells, when exposed to precise deep cooling, set off a process of natural removal which gradually reduces the thickness of the fat layer. The fat cells in the treated area are then eliminated over time using your body’s natural processes. Essentially fat cells are damaged and the bodies phagocytes (the cleanup cells) remove the fat. It’s a process that can take time
You will first be consulted by Dr Lanzer and his staff. This can be done in any of Dr Lanzer’s clinics or
via the Internet.
If the treatment is recommended; you will then be booked in for a series of 3 treatments at 4-week intervals. The results are cumulative and a course is required.
A gel pad will be placed on the area of concern and then the vacuum handpiece will be applied. You will feel a cooling and suction sensation which has minimal discomfort. The handpiece will be attached to the area for 60mins in total. During the hour you can read or play on your iPhone!
Afterwards, the area may appear to be a little bruised or swollen. Dr Lanzer’s staff will massage the
area when the treatment has finished and you are also encouraged to massage the area when you
get home. Swelling usually subsides on the same day. Patients should account for some downtime
after the procedure.
One area can be treated per one-hour session. For example- both upper arms can be treated, both outer thighs, both inner thighs, love handles or the buttocks. Both sides of other areas can be treated in the next session either immediately or on a different day.
Only one side of the abdomen can be treated at the same time as the area treated pulls the stomach across and it needs some time to relax. This is also due to the handpiece size and treating both sides of the abdomen in one session is too painful.
You can treat the whole abdomen in one day but will have to be done in a two-hour session. The neck, chest, breasts and double chin cannot be treated with the cryolipolysis machine.
An increasingly large number of patients now opt for Coolshape procedures. When you have your consultation on the CoolShape, Dr Lanzer will let you know which option he thinks will be best suited for you.

Most people tend to say that the fat freezing treatment is not painful but just a little uncomfortable at the start. Once the treatment has commenced for a few minutes, the area can go numb (from the fat freeze).
Tenderness and swelling can occur. Fainting can also occur if you are prone to it. More serious complications can occur which are very rare. These will be discussed with you in detail upon consultation.
Note: ALL SURGERY HAS RISKS. RESULTS VARY BETWEEN PEOPLE. EARLY INTERVENTION OF ANY ISSUES AFTER SURGERY ARE IMPORTANT.
CoolShape is probably a very similar fat freezing device to COOLSCULPT. The advantage of the CoolShape is that it is a second-generation fat freezing machine that has the extra benefit of having LED light. This helps to enhance the treatment effects. CoolShape is a newer and improved version of targeted fat freezing technology.
Dr Lanzer also performs lipo in his clinic. Liposuction is the removal of fat and fat cells through cannula and suction. This is a surgical option and is the only option that guarantees fat removal and weight loss.
The best candidates for CoolShape are people in good health who have small stubborn areas of fat that they cannot remove through diet and exercise. We do not recommend this treatment for patients who are very overweight or obese as Liposuction is a better alternative treatment for those patients.
As this treatment is non-surgical, results cannot be guaranteed. Every form of surgery has a possibility of a complication and these are given to you in detail by Dr Lanzer. It is a good idea to understand your surgical procedure and weight loss machine well and to obtain further advice from another specialist such as Dr Lanzer.

Dr Lanzer recommends three treatments four weeks apart in order to achieve the desired body shape.
At first, you may notice fat reduction and body shaping at around three to four weeks. The best results of your treatment are seen at three to four months.
People talk about a 30% fat loss but one can never promise results with non-surgical devices.
