If you have dedicated yourself to a consistent exercise routine and healthful diet, it can be especially frustrating to have certain places where fat seems to have become a fixture. You might be looking for a way to address those trouble spots–such as belly fat, a muffin top, or a double chin–without surgery and downtime. In this case, we encourage you to visit the experienced team at Synergy MedSpa for nonsurgical fat reduction with CoolSculpting. In Austin and Round Rock, we are a leading provider of CoolSculpting and one of the few practices to offer CoolSculpting Elite and DualSculpting, for increased fat reduction and reduced procedure times.

What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared body contouring treatment that minimizes fat deposits by freezing and destroying targeted fat cells. Once these cells are treated, your body naturally and gradually flushes them out over the course of a month or 2, revealing a slimmer silhouette without the need for surgery, downtime, or anesthetic.

Introducing CoolSculpting Elite

In addition to traditional CoolSculpting, we are proud to be one of the first practices in the Austin and Round Rock area to offer CoolSculpting Elite. This next-generation procedure treats 18% more surface area than the original CoolSculpting system. CoolSculpting Elite’s fleet of 7 new applicators is specially designed to fit your body’s natural curves. The curve series applicators, for example, are formed in a C-shape to align with rounded body contours such as on the abdomen. Other devices specialize in treating the jawline, back fat, banana rolls, and more.

The fat freezing process remains the same no matter which applicator is used. If you are interested in CoolSculpting Elite, your provider will explain the treatment process and use the best device for your needs.

Why Choose Synergy for CoolSculpting?

You have a number of options in Round Rock and Austin for CoolSculpting and CoolSculpting Elite treatments. Several factors set Synergy apart from other practices. We offer:

  • 2 CoolSculpting machines enable us to treat 2 areas at once, cutting treatment time in half
  • Multiple CoolSculpting applicators, customized to fit virtually any area of the body
  • Treatments performed by a team of CoolSculpting University-trained specialists
  • High patient satisfaction rating after just a single treatment.2

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting slims treated areas by exposing fat cells to a controlled cooling process using a handpiece or applicator applied to the surface of the skin. Cold temperatures harm fat cells before other tissues, so only the fat cells are affected by these innovative treatments1.

Where Does the Fat Go After CoolSculpting?

After your treatment, the body flushes away treated fat cells through its normal cleansing process. Results develop gradually but last indefinitely. Once these fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.

CoolSculpting process

Who Is a Candidate for CoolSculpting?

The best CoolSculpting and CoolSculpting Elite candidates are women and men who are already in good shape but have stubborn areas of fat that persist despite their best efforts. Sometimes these are genetic traits, such as a double chin, or trouble spots where fat tends to accumulate. CoolSculpting isn’t a weight-loss treatment and patients who see the most benefit are people who exercise regularly and eat a balanced diet.

How Much Does CoolSculpting Cost?

CoolSculpting treatments typically start at $600 at our Austin and Round Rock practice, though the final price depends on several factors, including the area or areas being targeted and the number of treatment sessions needed to meet your goals. We discuss the cost during your consultation. We offer packages that can help you save on our already-discounted prices. Learn more on our pricing page.

Should I Get CoolSculpting, Liposuction, or a Tummy Tuck?

CoolSculpting, liposuction, and tummy tucks all offer visible body contouring results, but the right treatment for you depends on your specific goals. CoolSculpting is a strong option for many people because it doesn’t require incisions or recovery time, yet it still creates a noticeably slimming effect.

Which Areas Can Be Treated With CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting can effectively treat many areas of the body where most people typically collect fat, including the abdomen, flanks, back, thighs, and “double chin.”

CoolSculpting treatment areas

What Is DualSculpting®?

With DualSculpting, offered at both our Austin and Round Rock locations, we can double your results without adding any treatment time. By using 2 machines simultaneously, we’re able to treat 2 areas of the body at the same time. This means we can address both thighs or both arms without adding on another 45 minutes or so to your appointment.

Which CoolSculpting Applicator Is Right for Me?

When first approved in 2010 by the FDA to reduce fat in the “love handles,” CoolSculpting was a game changer. The makers of CoolSculpting have since continued to produce innovative, specialized applicators that are designed to fit specific treatment areas. Synergy offers a range of these applicators.

They include:

CoolMini®

CoolMini® tool

The appearance of a double chin is one of the most common cosmetic concerns shared by men and women. The CoolMini applicator fits snugly under the chin and freezes the submental fat that’s responsible for a double chin. It’s the only treatment that can reduce fat in this area without incisions or injections.

CoolAdvantage™ Petite

CoolAdvantage™ Petite tool

Reducing fat on the upper arms is a challenge for most people. The CoolAdvantage Petite is ideal for this area, along with the back of the thighs, the knees, bra bulges, and banana rolls.

CoolAdvantage™

CoolAdvantage™ tools

Our go-to applicator because it includes 3 interchangeable attachments to fit different contours. The CoolCore Advantage treats the abdominal area and can reduce fat in a 35-minute treatment. The CoolFit Advantage treats inner thighs, and the CoolCurve+ Advantage™ is used for the flanks. With DualSculpting, we can use 2 applicators simultaneously and treat both sides in 35 minutes.

CoolAdvantage™ Plus

CoolAdvantage™ Plus tool

De-bulking larger areas such as the upper and lower abdomen with the CoolAdvantage Plus is the first step to creating contoured results. A 45-minute treatment can reduce fat on the hips and arms. We can even use this for fat that hangs over the waist.

CoolSmooth Pro™

CoolSmooth Pro™ tool

Unlike the other applicators, the CoolSmooth Pro doesn’t use suction to pull the treatment area between 2 plates during the cooling process. That’s because this applicator is specifically designed for denser areas of “hard to pinch” fat that are difficult to suction, such as the outer thighs. The treatment is a bit longer, but worth it.

How Safe Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is considered a safe treatment, especially when performed by a qualified provider, such as one of our trained specialists. The device has several safeguards in place to monitor your skin’s temperature and safely deliver controlled cooling only to your targeted fat deposits.

CoolSculpting Before & After

What Should I Expect at My CoolSculpting Consultation?

Before your treatment, you will meet with one of our CoolSculpting specialists, who will make sure CoolSculpting is right for you. Each of our specialists received specialized training when they attended CoolSculpting University and uses their expertise to recommend a customized treatment plan. If you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting and decide you want to try it, we can begin treatment right after your consultation.

Can I Combine CoolSculpting With Other Treatments?

Combining CoolSculpting with other body contouring or skin tightening procedures is a cost-effective way to address several concerns at once. We offer packages that combine CoolSculpting with CoolTone, a nonsurgical procedure that tones targeted muscles using magnetic energy. You can discuss your options during the consultation.

What Happens During a CoolSculpting or CoolSculpting Elite Treatment?

First, the targeted area is cleansed, and then a protective gel pad is smoothed over the skin. Next, your specialist attaches the CoolSculpting applicator over the pad, and the cooling process begins. If you are treating 2 areas, such as both outer thighs, we repeat the process with a second CoolSculpting machine and applicator. Most people initially experience intense cold and tingling for approximately the first 5 to 10 minutes until the area becomes numb. You can sit back and relax during the treatment, which takes about 30 to 45 minutes (depending on the area or areas being treated).

Margaret, Dr. Crawford's patient coordinator, is the BEST in the business. I have had several consults for my breast reduction, and even had a surgery date scheduled (with non-refundable deposit) with another surgeon, and have decided to move my surgery to Dr. Crawford before I've even met her face to face, thanks to Margaret's incredible service (and lots of research!). I feel so comfortable proceeding with surgery with this team and am ecstatic to see my results!

Margaret (patient coordinator) is THE most helpful person I have ever worked with in this industry. I had a breast reduction scheduled with a deposit at another surgeon, but after speaking to Margaret about having another procedure done at Synergy, I have decided to move the surgery to the Dr that she suggested. Not to mention, she answered my emails at 10:30pm with no hesitation!

Hopefully, I can express how absolutely pleased I’ve been with Synergy. Dr. Blagg must be the best BA surgeon in the country. I was blown away by the before and after results before I met with him. But he performed what I can only equate to a miracle on me personally. Beforehand, I met with other top surgeons in Austin, and they all truly pale in comparison to Dr. Blagg. From start to finish, he was caring and confident, arguably the two best characteristics of a surgeon, and he delivered results that exceeded every expectation. The frequent follow ups and wonderfully thoughtful nurses will make you feel more welcome than your own home. And I definitely cannot fail to mention one of the nurses in particular, Mariah Gilkey. She is a pure ray of sunshine that will shower you with so many compliments, you’ll be questioning if you even need surgery. She, specifically, made the entire experience exponentially better than I could’ve imagined. My only regret with Synergy is that, despite whatever I’ve paid them, I’ll never be able to adequately repay the life-changing results that they’ve given me. Thank you.

If I could give more stars, I would. Dr. Crawford and her team are amazing. From start to finish, everything went so well. I’m almost 4 months post of a BA, I am so happy I went with Dr. Crawford’s recommendation. She is honest, respectful of your concerns and questions and I felt extremely confident after my consultation. I am pretty petite and 265CC was a perfect fit for me! From the consultations, to surgery 10/10. I would highly recommend Synergy Plastic Surgery! Thank you Dr. Crawford for your amazing skills and personality! Thank you!

I’m super impressed with Synergy Plastic Surgery’s ability to listen and sympathize with their patients. My Patient coordinator, Margaret, has helped me tremendously with my surgery process and treats me as if I’m her own daughter. She is personable, and does everything in her power to make every patient feel taken care of. I called her struggling with some concerns of mine and she completely eased my stress and worries. My surgeon, Dr. Crawford, has a heart of gold and unmeasurable compassion. It’s truly admirable to have a doctor that is already putting so much time into her own busy job then to still dedicate time to volunteer and community work. I’ve watched her through social media change the life of children and others, and that makes me proud to call her my doctor. I’m excited to continue my surgical journey with Dr. Crawford!

I chose Synergy a few years ago to perform my breast augmentation procedure because when I was looking at their website before and after photos, not only did I like the way the patients looked after their surgeries, it was the one website that had someone monitoring the site and popped up and asked if I had any questions. They also had an awesome special running and were super nice when I called to ask for more details as several other places were not that I called. I decided to book a consultation with Dr. Ross Blagg because I watched some of his videos on the site and also on Instagram and really liked his personality and after photos. He seemed to really know what he was talking about and cared about his patients. He was the same way when I met him in person and I put the deposit down that day after our consultation. It took me almost two years to finally go through with my surgery due to life events and the pandemic, but I was finally ready in Nov 2020 and they even honored the price I was originally quoted! The nursing staff was so nice and warm when I arrived for my surgery and got me calm and ready for my surgery. I was nervous but not scared because I knew I was in good hands. The surgery was so quick and when I woke up I had very minimal pain and felt like I was ready to go within 20 minutes! The pain the next few days was no where near what I imagined it would be, and I definitely recommend this surgery with Synergy Plastic Surgery if you are feeling hesitant about breast augmentation in general. They will be the best ones to take care of you. It has been almost 4 months since my surgery now and I absolutely love my results! They are almost completely dropped now and my scars are also less apparent already! I can't wait to show them off at the beach soon!! 😀

Where to even begin in expressing how utterly happy I am to have discovered Synergy and Dr. Crawford. I recently lost 95 pounds and unfortunately was left with loose skin that could not be fixed just by working out. I requested in person consultations from 3 places, one being Synergy. I was able to schedule a free consultation with Dr. Crawford very quickly. My problem areas were my arms, stomach, legs, and breasts. Immediately within meeting Dr. Crawford, I knew she was going to be my surgeon. She was extremely thorough, listened to what I was wanting to achieve, but was also very kind and empathic. Walking out of the appointment I did tell them full disclosure I wanted to at least follow through with my other consultations, but I knew I was going to choose Dr. Crawford. My other consultations did not give me that same connection and warmth, and their pricing was absolutely not comparable. The staff at Synergy continued to follow up with me, made sure I did not have any questions, and even told me if I went elsewhere they were happy for me. Side bar - both the Round Rock and Austin facilities are beautiful and very clean, and every single employee there is kind and courteous. It was a no brainer in ultimately deciding to choose Dr. Crawford. I opted to do a breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and arm lift and am now 2 weeks post op. The morning of surgery I got extremely nervous (which is so not normal for me) and Dr. Crawford just sat with me and let me take as much time as I needed before we proceeded with surgery - another moment in which her qualities as not only a surgeon but as a person far exceeded my expectations. Dr. Crawford has continued to follow up with me throughout these 2 weeks and I genuinely cannot express how thrilled I am with the results already. Recovery has been a breeze (I was literally walking on my own day 1), my incisions are as flawless as they can be all things considered and I accredit that to Dr. Crawford’s talent and precision. I already have this newfound sense of confidence that I lost when I had gained the weight, and even when I lost it and had to face that new body I was left with. To anyone reading this, save yourself the time and book with Dr. Crawford. The pricing is fair and less than the other places I spoke to. You are not, I repeat you are NOT going to find someone like her elsewhere. She is so genuine, and really listens and cares about her patients. Aside from being the most genuine and kind Doctor I have ever had, her work is absolutely flawless. I really cannot stress enough, even without being fully healed how amazing I look and feel. This was one of the best things I have ever done, and would do it 100 times over, with Dr. Crawford, and Dr. Crawford only. I am very much looking forward to booking my leg lift as soon as I am healed and cleared, and would never even consider another person. Dr. Crawford, thank you for everything; you have literally changed my life and are my angel. P.S - Synergy and Dr. Crawford have not asked me to leave a review. I am doing this because her talent, work, personality, just everything about her deserves this and to anyone shopping around or are on the fence, do yourself the favor and meet with her. You will not regret it!

BEST RESULTS I'VE EVER HAD! I went pensively to get Botox & fillers/lip injections at the referral of a friend who looks amazing. I have had Botox before at other places & because I have a small forehead, have ended up in tears with hooded eyes. Most of my deep wrinkles are in my forehead. My appt was with Mara & from the first moment I could tell this wasn't just a job for her. It's her passion. She listened to EVERYTHING I said (which was a lot), spent time really studying my face & clarifying what I had said I wanted to accomplish. I was adamant no drooping of my eyes but PLEASE try to get some of the wrinkles out of my forehead. And I was also very specific about my lips looking natural but filled back in. She explained everything to me, was honest about what she felt she could accomplish in one sitting & I have to tell you I am shocked & amazed at how awesome the results are!! I have received more compliments in the last few weeks about how great my skin looks, asking about my face cream, how rested I look, and how pretty my lipstick is. That tells me she did EXACTLY what I asked. Natural & subtle. And the deep wrinkles on my forehead are almost completely gone!! I cannot say enough how much I trust her with my face/skin. I am genuinely impressed with her skills & knowledge. I have referred friends who are just as picky as I am & will continue to refer people as I truly believe they will be just as pleased with their results. Thank you Mara & Synergy for taking years off my face & giving me back much needed confidence.

Where do I even begin?! I received 6 other consults throughout the U.S. for my MMO before going to Synergy. After loosing more than 120lbs, I had very unique needs but realistic expectations. Within minutes of meeting Dr. Blagg, I knew he was my surgeon! We spent nearly an hour discussing my options and ultimately coming up with a surgical plan that we both felt was best. (Not many surgeons do that!) From the consult, to pre-op, surgery and post-op, the experience was phenomenal. The day of surgery was a breeze from what I can remember lol. Dr. Blagg called me to check on me though I vaguely remember it because of the anesthesia and pain meds. My recovery was so easy. I was up and moving the next day with minimal assistance. I'm now 3 months post op and couldn't be happier with my results as they exceeded my expectations. Dr. Blagg has great bedside manner, a sense of humor and not bad on the eyes either. He is genuinely a good person and you feel that in his presence. Janice, his coordinator, is so sweet and informative. At every point of my journey, I felt safe (which is important in the current climate). I literally don't have a single bad thing to say which is unusual because I'm very critical. I'm so glad I trusted Dr. Blagg for my Mommy Makeover. I'll definitely be going back for all of my future cosmetic/plastics needs! If you're considering Synergy, do it, you won't regret it!

I cannot say enough about the Team at Synergy Plastic Surgery! From the 1st phone calls and emails with Vlasta, to the virtual consultation with Dr. Kerr, my actual surgery, and the after care, everyone and everything was A+++! I had 6 other consults with surgeons in Houston Tx where I had my first augmentation and none of them even came close to the customer service and care Synergy provided. I went in for an implant exchange. I was so scared! It wasn't exciting for me like it was the 1st time in my early 20s lol!! But rest assured, the Synergy team did everything to make me feel SO comfortable! My pre op nurse, Tiffany was THE BEST! She administered the IV needle which was my biggest fear. Normally I would've cried and begged for the person to stop. I didn't even feel a thing! Carol administered the anesthesia and once again...I didn't feel a thing! Dr. Kerr gave me exactly what I asked for and I'm so thankful. I didn't even have a single bruise. If you're looking for the best pros in the business to give you gorgeous results AND quality customer care, Synergy is the place! Thank yall!

When Can I Return to My Normal Activities After CoolSculpting?

After your treatment, you can return to your normal daily routine, including work or exercise, without restrictions. You may experience some mild redness, tingling, or skin sensitivity in your treated areas for a day or 2, but this shouldn’t prevent you from enjoying your usual activities.

When Will I See My CoolSculpting Results?

While experiences vary, patients usually begin to notice treated areas slimming in about 3 weeks. Improvements usually peak 2 months after treatment, although the body continues to flush away dead fat cells for 4 to 6 months. Your final results will last a long time if you maintain your healthy lifestyle.

How Many CoolSculpting Treatments Will I Need?

This depends on your goals for the procedure. Many patients need at least 2 treatment sessions to get the fat reduction they desire, but some may need more. We discuss your treatment plan during the consultation.

Does CoolSculpting Remove Fat for Good?

The body naturally removes fat cells killed by CoolSculpting. That’s different than when you lose weight, in which fat cells shrink. But continuing to exercise regularly and maintain a healthy diet is important because the remaining fat cells in the treatment area can grow.
