More providers in Knoxville are offering CoolSculpting, a non-surgical fat reduction procedure based on freezing fat cells, also known in “medicalese” as cryolipolysis. It’s been almost two years since we we were the first practice to bring CoolSculpting to Knoxville. After seeing the patient results at the meeting of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and talking to our colleagues in other cities who had the technology, we couldn’t wait to bring it to town. Our CoolSculpting patient reviews reaffirm the decision to be the first in Knoxville to have it. With cool technology like this, it’s no surprise that other practices have started performing CoolSculpting in their offices as well. To quote Dr. Reath, “If it really works, sooner or later everyone is going to have it.” So how do you know which is the best practice for you to have your CoolSculpting treatment? Here are some things to consider:
We have the experience and training to achieve the best possible results. Becoming CoolSculpting Certified is an extensive process of physician and staff training, quality assurance monitoring and validation by the maker of CoolSculpting. We are the first and only practice in Knoxville that is CoolSculpting Certified. Experience and training matter in this arena. Even though it is a non-surgical procedure, CoolSculpting is very technique-driven. There is a real learning curve before a provider really understands how to get the best results when treating patients. Not only has our office performed the most CoolSculpting treatments in Knoxville, but Dr. Reath also flew our CoolSculpting Technician, Natasha Self, to Dallas and Montreal to train for days with the top CoolSculpting practices in the US and Canada. Natasha is the only CoolSculpting provider in Knoxville to attend the advanced CoolSculpting University in San Francisco. You will benefit from their added experience and all the best practices she learned from the experts.

The CoolSculpting before and after photos on this website are actually our patients. We have before and after pictures of our own Knoxville patients to paint the most accurate picture of the results you can expect. CoolSculpting has a collection of stock before and after photos for practices to use which demonstrate the technical capabilities of the machine– but those pictures don’t tell you anything about the results you can expect from any individual practice. Make sure you have the right expectations with the most accurate information available. Browse our photos on any of the following links:
We have two CoolSculpting machines to save you hours. CoolSculpting procedures take an hour and can be done over a lunch break. Pretty quick, right? But, if you want to treat both sides of your hips or both bra lines and your doctor only has one machine, you’ll be there for at least an extra hour (no longer in lunch break territory). That’s why we brought in two machines, instead of just one. It saves so much time, they even have a name for it….DualSculpting. Don’t spend the extra hour– treat both sides at the same time with two machines. All you have to do is sit back, enjoy the dim lighting, music and free wireless.
CoolSculpting frequently invents new applicators which are designed for different areas of the body. The applicators are quite expensive so many practices try to get by with what they have. We are the only office in Knoxville to have the new FDA-cleared applicator designed specifically for the outer thighs, and we have two of them so you can treat both thighs at the same time. Dr. Reath and CoolSculpting Technician Natasha Self talk about this exciting new development.
Our price is right. As a CoolSculpting Premier Crystal practice, we get the best prices on CoolSculpting cards to run our machines. Even better? We pass these savings on to our patients. You’ll find that our treatments are right in line with other practices in town, and for more than one treatment, substantially less.
Coolsculpting is priced per area. The abdomen is considered one area and both flanks (hip rolls, inners thighs, love handles etc.) another single area. Since each area takes about an hour to treat, you’ll want to decide how many areas you want treated before you come in for your appointment.
If you want two or more areas treated or one area treated more than once, it’s difficult to tell you exactly what it will cost before seeing you. Your best bet is to come in for a free consultation and we will work out a CoolSculpting plan that meets your individual goals.
To give you a general idea, this is the price range, with the lowest price being just one treatment on a single area.

We have other options if you are not a candidate for CoolSculpting. We are big fans of the CoolSculpting procedure, but are also the first to tell you that it is not for everyone. For patients with loose skin, removing underlying fat can actually make things look worse, not better. Does your provider really understand everything that can be done to treat your area of concern? The answer: probably not if you are at a dermatologist or a medi-spa. After all, as Dr. Reath is fond of saying, “When all you have is a hammer, the whole world is a nail.” As a plastic surgeon’s office, we understand that CoolSculpting is just one tool in a body contouring toolbox, not the only option. If you’re not a good candidate for the procedure, we won’t do it. Instead, we’ll direct you towards something that will give you the results you want, so that you can make an informed decision about what’s right for you.
Choosing between CoolSculpting, Liposuction, or a Tummy Tuck?
We are so lucky to have found Natasha. She has been working in our office for three years, but every day we wonder how we ever managed without her. Quietly effective and totally charming, Natasha takes care of all of our CoolSculpting patients and is completely in charge of managing Dr. Reath’s busy surgical calendar. Her expertise has been honed by over 13 years in the healthcare industry, so she doesn’t scare easily.
Experience and training matter in this arena. Even though it is a non-surgical procedure, CoolSculpting is very technique-driven. There is a real learning curve before a provider really understands how to get the best results when treating patients. Not only has Natasha performed the most CoolSculpting treatments in Knoxville, but Dr. Reath also flew Natasha to Dallas and Montreal to train for days with the top CoolSculpting practices in the US and Canada.

“I’ve always been such a people person, and helping both patients and Dr. Reath has been very fulfilling. Our patients’ excitement after they see the amazing results from their CoolSculpting treatments makes me excited too. It’s definitely one of the best parts of my job!”
